I am a computer technician and have used D-Link products for the past several years. I always chose D-Link products for my home and recommended them to customers for their reliability and ease of use. I wanted to increase my wireless speed so I chose this router because of the faster "N" protocol.It was easy to set up as with all D-Link products, but from there on it went down hill. The speed of my network fluctuated constantly, both wireless and wired. Most of the time it stayed at a painful crawl, worse than dial up. I spent many hours tweaking every setting on this device but was never able to get it to even out or run at an acceptable speed. I finally gave up and re-installed my old router, a D-Link Di-504. Immediately my network was back to normal and fast as usual. I may have gotten a bad one, but I have spoken with other techs in the IT field and all have experienced problems with the newest D-Link products. D-Link was unable to offer any help other than to return the router and try another one.I may, but for now this offers a challenge, so I will keep it for the time being. If you buy this and have the same problems please post a review. I am curious to see if anyone else has had problems.

Works great; a total steal at that price

by Steven on 8/14/2010

Router arrived on time, set up was a complete breeze using Dlink setup disc, and the router works perfectly. I cant speak to the precise specs that gamers or hard core users might need, but I am using it for general internet surfing/itune movie downloading/music streaming and it works perfectly. Speeds have tested very well with N devices. Wireless signal seems strong; I use my laptop outside on the patio with the router a few walls away and signals are still strong outside. I recommend this router without hesitation Read More
