The D-Link DI-LB604 Load Balancing Router embodies the heart of small business: low overhead with high return on investment. This inexpensive, easy-to-use router has all the features you need for a business network: four LAN ports, two WAN ports, built-in firewall, browser-based set up, and a host of administrator tools for keeping your network up and running at all times.

Featuring dual WAN ports, the DI-LB604 can connect to two internet connections simultaneously, effectively doubling the bandwidth of the network and providing a tremendous increase in network efficiency. It also protects the network from connection failure—if one internet connection goes down, the other automatically takes control to prevent any interruptions and ensure network uptime. The built-in four-port switch allows you to connect up to four PCs directly, or even more by adding additional switches, so that as your business grows, your connectivity can grow to keep up.

The DI-LB604 features a dual Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI) and Network Address Translation (NAT) firewall with Denial of Service (DoS) attack protection to safeguard your data and prevent unwanted access or intrusion. The impressive list of administrator features gives your system administrator unparalleled control, access, and notification of network status to ensure that the network is working perfectly, all the time. The DI-LB604—offering high return on investment for any small business.

  • newegg Dual WAN Ports With the D-Link DI-LB604’s ability to connect up to two Internet connections with dual WAN ports, the total available bandwidth doubles in capacity and therefore provides a tremendous increase in network efficiency and user productivity. Dual WAN ports provide a fast-acting failover response mechanism -- if one Internet connection goes down, the other automatically takes control to ensure continuous network uptime.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat for torrents

Pros: Great if you have two internet connections and you want to load balance traffic. I setp two cable modems on this and have a mighty pc pushing several hundred torrents out on private trackers and it works GREAT! Very easy setup.

Cons: not able to plug 3 modems in to it lol.

Other Thoughts: Worth it.

3 out of 5 eggsLoosing My Hair!!

Pros: You can get some smoken fast downloads.

WAN1 is PPPoE DSL connection

WAN2 is Cradlepoint CTR350 EVDO Router which is connected to my Sprint (Sierra Wireless AirCard 595U) cellular modem

Cons: Try getting to a HTTPS web site after running the setup wizard is impossible, unless I disable one of the WAN ports.

Others on the LAN side, including myself, experience very slow page loads, time outs, drop outs, ........... LOST HAIR!!!

It worked real good when I first installed it, I had some nice download speeds out here in the sticks, 100+KBs using Flashget.

I upgrade the firmware, but all that did was give me more pages of stuff that I could configure.

Other Thoughts: wile searing for help with this thing I found;

3 out of 5 eggsSo far, so good

Pros: Load balances two WAN connections (e.g. cable and DSL). Easy to set up and manage once you get used to the user interface. If it continues to work reliably this will be a great product for me, as I rely on constant internet uptime for all of my work and a lot of my play. It CAN be made compatible with HTTPS connections as I describe below. Other connections seem to do well with load balancing.

Phone support was great for me.

Cons: UI and overall latency suffers in comparison to other D-Link routers (e.g. DGL4100, which I also own). Cannot truly balance certain types of connections (e.g. HTTPS), but does well on others. Can be difficult to find things without getting tech support on the phone.

Many configuration changes seem to require a hard reboot of the device, even after it says it is restarting itself.

Other Thoughts: Many people seem to be struggling with getting HTTPS off the ground with this thing. The secret to HTTPS working properly (don't ask me why it's a secret, but they hide it pretty well), is as follows:

Go to Tools, Misc, click Set Protocol & Port Binding, and set up a destination range binding for your LAN IP block, and port 443. This is weird, as it seems like you should be setting the source IPs, but whatever. It fixes the problem. Note that HTTPS connections will no longer be load balanced under this configuration.

If you understand why you would need to do such a thing, this product will probably be great for you. If you can't really follow these instructions or you don't want to be required to, this product may be a bit too difficult to use for you.

4 out of 5 eggsUnderstanding this product and what it does. (CORRECTION TO MY PREVIOUS POST)

Pros: Router does exactly what it advertises. As long as you understand networking, and know that browsing, FTP, email attachment downloads, and pretty much anything else that could be considered single-connection, will not gain any additional speed by using this router in place of a single-wan router. This router performs best in a multi-PC, multi-connection environment. Multiple downloads, multiple web-pages, and torrents are a good example of what this router will enhance. It's also great if you like to have your friends over for LAN partys. Again, multiple connections = benefit.

Cons: The UI could be somewhat more intuitive, but considering the nature of this router, it might be best to stay as is or possibly be even more complex.

Other Thoughts: To those who claim this router doesn't load balance, you're wrong. I own a small network service and integration firm in my hometown. I've setup several of these and highly recommend them. However, you must know what you're doing. First and foremost, if you've got only one PC, and think this will improve your game ping-times or single-file, single-connection download speeds, you're wrong. Furthermore, you must know how to properly configure this device. Binding the HTTPS protocol to one IP address would be a good start. Any problems you might experience come from whatever "server" and it's inability to understand that one PC is using two IP addresses to make a connection. Server software just isn't designed to handle that. In the case of HTTPS, the server cannot sustain a "secure" connection to two IP addresses simultaneously. Understand?

Anyway, if you've got multiple PCs, or as one user stated, download multiple torrents, you're in luck!

2 out of 5 eggsDoes not work with some secure websites

Pros: Works OK as a normal single WAN router. I use it just fine with only my cable modem attached.

Cons: When I plug my DSL modem into the router so that I have a dual WAN connection (cable and DSL), the modem fails to operate for normal internet usage. For example, if I go to a site that uses a secure connection, with HTTPS:// in the URL, the websites fail with the dual-WAN connection. An example of sites that break down: internet banking, PayPal, and Google Adsense. If I want to access these sites, I must unplug one of the internet connections from the back of the modem. I can find no settings that will allow the modem to work with secure websites.

2 out of 5 eggsNot a Hardware Bridge or Trunk

Pros: Easy setup and configuration. Good D-link tech support by phone 24x7.

Cons: Does not handle network outages on one WAN port to maintain continuous connectivity. No packet prioritization logic. Slow UI.

Other Thoughts: I have the D-link GamerLounge DGL-4300, the best router I've owned (also owned Linksys). I bought the LB-604 because of the two WAN ports, thinking I could double my throughput from my Cable and DSL ISP feeds. It's not designed to do that. Then it occurred to me that this unit is just a glorified Ethernet switch! So I pulled the unit. I then plugged the CAT5e cables from the cable TA and DSL TA into an auto-sensing switch. Then I connected a third cable to the WAN port of the GamerLounge. Amazingly, upload speeds improved by almost 100kpbs. D/L about the same. And better multitasking. The GameFuel function of the GamerLounge for VOIP support just smokes the QOS and "load balancing" hockum of the LB604. I can run XTorrent and have a clean VOIP call under this scenario, something I couldn't do with the LB604.

So my suggestion for users looking to tie a second ISP into their network for redundancy and better multitasking: get a GamerLounge and connect an upstream switch to it.

Pros: if you are only using one internet connection, it works as well as any 20 dollar wired router

Cons: enabling load balancing made things move at the speed of dial-up, if you could get pages to load at all
