I have owned D-Link routers for the last 8 years, and I am a huge fan of their products. I have tried Netgear, Linksys, Belkin, and a few others, and D-Link has always been the best in my experience. That said, I thought this particular model would be superb, based on my previous experience with their products. After a couple months it started locking up - all lights frozen, requiring a power cycle of the router to fix it. This became worse and worse until after about 6 months it was a paperweight. After really fighting it out with their technical support (which you HAVE to do to get a warranty replacement) and struggling to make a non-english speaking person understand the problem (one even hung up on me - twice) I finally argued enough with their supervisor's supervisor to get a replacement sent out. It takes so long to get a replacement I went ahead and purchased another new one as I needed access for work. After several months now the new one, too, has started to lock up on occassion requiring a power cycle. I haven't even plugged the replacement up, preferring to keep it as a backup. While it does this much less frequently than the 1st one (once every week or two at most) it DOES still occur. After saying all of that, I will say that it is still probably one of the best routers out there in terms of functionality, ease of setup, maintenance, features, etc. I run a lot of devices off of my network, and could be just too much for my router. For your average home network I don't think you could go wrong here. Just pray that you never need to contact their technical support.

The product performed fine but don't count on the rebate from D-Link in your pricing. Six months later and they're still stringing me along. The rebates from Buy.com always come quickly but there's a reason D-Link has so many products with rebates - they don't pay! They string you along, requesting you send this or that again, promising to send the check in the next four weeks but it never shows up. They are counting on you giving up - Don't do it! If you were dumb enough to fall for their scam (like me), keep hounding them until they pay up.

Flaky at times - but still better than a Linksys

Cheap... That is the only good thing about it

by A Network Manager on 4/25/2008

I picked this router up on sale a while ago. Was planning to use it as an access point to extend the range of my existing network. This thing did not want to work at all ... there were constant freezes, non responses, and everthing else that might happen to a non functional network. The user interface is not friendly, there are a lot of differences that one will need to get used to prior to actuall getting this product functional. The latest dlink firmware claimed to have fixed issues with user interface but it clearly did nothing much... I have used many various brands of routers and broadband modems, even the old serial console / text based config routers is easier to use than this. I have used zyxel, linksys, linksys/cisco, speedstream, netgear, among others... any other random router is better than this. But if you can find it when the sale comes, I don't intend to stop you from getting one... Its overall performance is really marginal at best. Read More
