Customer Reviews of D-Link - DI-824VUP Wireless Router - 1 x WAN, 4 x LAN
D-link routers have been very easy for me to set up. This is my second D-Link wireless router. My first one died suddenly (after 3 years) but I was convinced I wanted to replace it with another D-Link. I am not that computer savvy (advanced beginner) so setting up a home network can be scary. I found the D-link instructions and admin page for the router very user friendly. I especially love that D-Link offers routers with a built in print server.
Industrial looking device9/28/2006
The D-link VPN router is very easy to configure and use. The technical support from D-link is excellent. The wireless capability of this device is very useful also. Setup takes less than 1 hour for a PPTP connection and the menu options make sense. This works great with Windows XP built in VPN client.
Ugly but works.8/11/2004
I basically bought this because I've had Linksys and Negear wireless/firewalls, and wanted to see what the D-Link products were like. Besides having one of the ugliest and confusing web based management systems I've ever seen. The device works, and keeps working. The log is a bit light, but you can at least send it to syslog. The wireless seems fine, I'm in a small place so I can't give you any good idea on range... except for it works from the sidewalk which is a good 100 feet from me. I did have to upgrade the firmware to get WPA encryption, but that was a fairly painless process. The packet filtering is a bit limited (Allow/Deny), but I could get most of what I wanted configured through it. The built in DDNS works how it should, and I didn't seem to have any of the printer issues I've heard people mention. As far as the VPN, it's not why I bought it. I played with the PPTP with MSCHAP and it seems to work okay. The best news is, I haven't had to power this thing off once in over 2 months since I first turned it on. Can't say I had the same luck with any of the Netgear products I've bought over the years. Based on the performance of this device, I'd buy another D-Link... even though they are really ugly.
