Good value for money with caveats10/2/2012
Setup routine was not as smooth as expected on a Macintosh (CD is Windows only). Be aware that you MUST reset your DSL/Cable modem which is not necessarily easy with some Cable modems (especially ones where the backup battery must be removed to power off). Range is not greatly increased from the router it replaced (five year old 11G). Once set up and configured, it has been humming away.
Got this unit so when the kids come home from college we all can share the network and it works great. i connect two laptops, and iphone wireless, one desktop and xbox wired and works perfectly, but you must have a fast internet to get this great service
Easy To Setup, Yet Advanced Features, Runs Cool1/3/2009
I am very pleased with this Wireless N Super Range Router. Dlink did a great job with this product. In addition to the faster wireless N draft speed (270 mbps), Dlink has put in the features to control this router to whatever your networking ability is. One such feature is blocking MAC or IP addresses for a predefined schedule. One can define as many schedules as they want, then apply them to block/allow Internet usage, block/allow access to specified web sites or applications. The router also runs cool, as opposed to the Netgear router that I replaced. Highly recommend this product.
