2 out of 5 eggsRouter can't handle multiple devices

Pros: Provides good wireless signal strength through walls.

Setup is easy with Wizard mode and as complex as you want to get in manual setup mode.

Cons: Disappointing lag/latency when multiple devices connected makes it unusable for gaming and media streaming.

Router admin page disconnects you after 4-5 minutes no matter how often you save settings and refresh - annoying!

Other Thoughts: After updating the firmware to the latest version I put this router in action. It performed well at first but severe lag problems started a few weeks later. I noticed the router just hangs for several seconds and it seems to be happening more often. It is not a channel contention issue, nor do restarts fix it.

Playing on the Xbox, the game suddenly freezes and when the router wakes back up I'm either dead or halfway across the map. Streaming video just stops, VoIP goes silent and web pages will not load. Then suddenly it's back to normal until the next seizure - and you never know when the next one's coming. They've been as frequent as one every few minutes.

I had high hopes for this router but it doesn't seem able to handle multiple devices well. I could RMA and hope for the best but my media-hungry family probably can't handle the downtime. Assuming my router is not defective I can't recommend it for multiple-device households.

We want to thank you for the feedback as we truly value the input and we are sorry to hear that you are encountering issues with the product.

Some of these objects include telephones, microwaves, television sets, and filing cabinets.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Worked like it was supposed too, not quite plug and play, a tiny bit of setup but super easy.

Sleak, nice design, hides in the background nicely. Strong signal in and out of my apartment.

Cons: Bit of a stretch but it is light, like the wight of the cable going off the edge of the bookshelf almost pulls it over.

Other Thoughts: For me, the key was having a wired ports. Xbox and PC are wired. I prefer the wired options, but the wireless is nice when I'm at home and on my phone instead of the PC.

I do wish the case was a little sturdier, the one it replaced was 10+ yo but had a nice metal case, this feels like it is completely plastic.

Manufacturer Response:

We thank you for the feedback as we greatly admire the input and we are happy to hear that you are satisfied with your purchase. If you ever run into any issues feel free to contact us by visiting www.support.dlink.com or by calling 1-877-453-5465. We thank you for choosing D-Link.

1 out of 5 eggsDo Not Buy

Pros: NA - needs to work in order to evaluate pros

Cons: Attempted to update vendor firmware and ended up with a bricked device. RMA'd (and had to pay shipping). Then received notification that they were not honoring the RMA as they did not like the box. Seriously...

Other Thoughts: Thought I was getting a good deal as it was a daily deal. Sadly I was mistaken. Now I am out the cost of the router and the shipping for the RMA. Not pleasant

1 out of 5 eggsMany problems

Pros: Works well with wired connections

Cons: Have all kinds of problems with wifi. Needs to be reset frequently, range is terrible, slow connections.

Other Thoughts: I bought this to replace my old wifi router which I had to reset every couple of days. This DIR-645 needs to be reset multiple times per day. Often I need to have the clients disconnect and reconnect to re-establish the connection. That is a pain with the Roku boxes. I did flash to latest firmware but no luck. Ended up swapping back to old router and throwing the D-link on a shelf.

Manufacturer Response:

We want to thank you for the feedback as really do appreciate the input. We are sorry to hear that you are experiencing issues with the DIR-645. Please be advised that you want to keep the number of walls between your router and modem to a minimum. You also want to move the router away from any microwaves, televisions sets, and cordless telephones. If you continue to encounter problems please contact D-Link technical support by visiting www.support.dlink.com or by calling 1-877-453-5465. We thank you for choosing D-Link.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Router

Pros: Form factor
Informative Lights

Cons: SLOW to boot

Other Thoughts: Be prepared to wait for this router to boot; it's the longest I've encountered. At first I thought it was dead. (From power to wireless reconnect is up to 3 minutes.) Just watch the lights to see what it's doing. This slows configuration down too. But DLink provides a pretty easy and flexible interface.

Unusual cylinder form factor makes it easier to place or stack in some installs than the book router form.

The SmartBeam works well and increases signal strength.

5 out of 5 eggsWonderful, great product!

Pros: Very easy to set up and get going...
~15 minutes following instructions; less than 5 when I had become more familiar with it...
I get almost full signal throughout my house and backyard and driveway (1 story 3 bdrm house) no drops in speed whatsoever!
Router outperforms the dinky modem that my ISP issues by miles and the physical on/off switch is nice when if comes to power cycling them.

Cons: the advanced mode in the router settings can be a little too advanced for the everyday user (but that's why they're advanced)

Other Thoughts: Had this router for 8+ months now and I'm so glad I found this on sale!

3 out of 5 eggsSolid router but coverage not improved

Pros: Appearance
Web set-up and management application
Networking features

Cons: Did not remove weak/unreliable spots from the house as I hoped.
Coverage area smaller than previous router (DIR-655) positioned in same location.

Other Thoughts: Purchased this for ~$20 on a crazy sale when my other router (DIR-655) started to show signs of failure. I had a weak spot in my upstairs that i was hoping this "smart beam" router would fix. Unfortunately it did not. In truth, the weak spot is now a dead zone and coverage is unreliable in an adjacent room that did not previously have an issue.

Can't speak to service life, but other than the over promising and under delivering on the coverage range the router is fine. I would recommend this if you can pick it up for cheap but do not expect coverage range to improve.

Manufacturer Response:

We want to thank you for the feedback as we really do appreciate the comments. We are sorry to hear that you are dissatisfied with the DIR-645. Please make sure you have downloaded and installed the latest firmware. In addition, move household appliances such as microwaves, televisions, and telephones away from the router because these objects negatively impact the router's frequency. If your problem persists, we suggest that you contact D-Link technical support by visiting www.support.dlink.com or by calling 1-877-453-5465. We thank you for choosing D-Link.

1 out of 5 eggsPiece of junk

Pros: None

Cons: Drops connection every few mins.
Claims whole house range. But I do not get adequate signal even in a room two walls apart.
Do not buy this.

Please make sure you have downloaded and installed the latest firmware (1.04B11). Also, you want to keep the number of walls and ceilings in between your device and router to a minimum. In addition, keep your product away from any materials that can negatively affect wireless performance such as glass, metal, brick, insulation, concrete and water. If your connection problems persist perhaps D-Link technical support can solve the issue. Contact them at www.support.dlink.com. We thank you for being a D-Link customer.
