Hi all, This is my revised version of the review for this item that I bought. I had problems with the speed. I thought it could be the problem with the router. I contacted the C/S. The customer service is awesome. They reply back promply and give detailed instructions. I had to change my MTU of the router settings from 1500 and 1452 and the speed resumed to what I expected it to be. 3 cheers to the Customer service of D-Link. I would encourage buyers to buy this router. Also the speed on wireless is incomparable.

I had a Netgear MR 814 for a month and it drove me nuts... lost/dropped wireless connections, continuous hard reboots of the router and modem every 2-3 hours .. Oh boy that was a nightmare. Finally after a friend recommended me to either buy dlink or linksys. I found this great deal at buy.com and bought the routerabout 2 weeks back. Now i have been using this for the past week and it ROCKS!! I was started in 10 minutes with the basic configurations. Though I needed help with the configuration of port forwading which i did find on the dlink site. I did go through the support questions and answers and they have taken care to answer most common problems... Its been 1 week and i am completely satisfied with the system.. WHat a piece of mind !!! AWESOME.... Recommend it completely ....

Wow! ... What a price! ... What a Router!

I just checked back in with Buy.Com to download the Rebate, and I can't believe the price dropped again on this Router. This is a solid performer, and is very easy to set-up for the beginner, and also has some advanced features for the more knowledgable user. The router portion is great, and the Wireless Access portion works very well too!. I don't think you'll find a better product for the money than this Router. I've had mine up and running for about a week, and no issues... so I'm sending in my Rebate!

Hi all, I just bought this router to share the DSL verizon connection with my other room-mates. The DSL connection is very fast if I try to use the internet. But once I connect the router, the connection is so horribly slow that I cant believe even when I am the only one connected to the router. Also, when I use the wireless, I cannot use my lap top in my bedroom since there is no signal as the router is located in the living room in a 1 bed room apt. This sucks. I wonder if there is something I could do to improve my speed, but I am pretty sure it has to do with the router. I have followed the regular instructions to install the router. If someone had this problem and have finally been able to get good speeds, pls. let me know. Sai.
