4 out of 5 eggsThis Router is NOT Consumer

Pros: 960 Mbps WAN throughput
True VPN Router that works well with Win 7 IKE v2 VPN Client
Can handle many users at once
Good price for "commercial" router - Luxul XBR-2300 is $270 online and isn't anywhere close to this one.

Cons: Except for basic set up, it requires knowledge to set it up. Not sure this is a con since it is commercial and not consumer.

SSL VPN not so good. D-Link is working on it. PPTP and L2TP work very well if you set them up right.

Other Thoughts: With any router the absolutely first thing to do is update the firmware. The latest for this router has a nice GUI but is way different from normal D-Link GUIs.

If you know what you are doing this router rocks. If you think you know what you are doing, bang your head against that brick wall for a while and then call tech support, which is not the consumer support. This is a business commercial router and the business support number is 877-354-6555. One thing that got me was it took me forever to see that the VPN Client in Win 7 is IKE v2. When setting up IPSEC policies that is important. The specs are wonderful and the WAN throughput is 960 Mbps and it has dual WAN ports. I could have settled for the DSR-150, which is basically the same with fewer VPN tunnels and a WAN throughput of only 95 Mbps, but our Time Warner connection is just over 100 Mbps, and I wanted headroom. So I paid the extra 50-60 bucks for the 250.

Now as far as the wireless part, I wanted a wired only and use an older router like a DIR-655 set up as a wireless access point, so I can place it high in a good location for coverage, besides getting the EMF away from you is best. the wireless version, DSR-250N, is considerably more and there are lots of wireless N routers that will work just fine set up as WAPs, or you can get a separate wireless access point if you have devices with the new AC protocols built in.

Summary - this router is a beast, but it is way smarter than you are. Don't blame it, learn it, or get something else.

1 out of 5 eggsNo IE 11 support

Pros: Used to work for SSL.
Works perfectly as a router.

Cons: The SSL Portal does not work with IE11 and Win 7. Does not work with the most up to date Firefox either. Says so in the most up to date Release Notes (1.09B32). Just chatted with tech support - there are no plans to update it, so it is now useless.
