4 out of 5 eggsOut of the box

This review is from: D-Link Xtreme Gigabit Router (DIR-655) Wireless N300, USB SharePort, Gigabit

Pros: I was replacing a belkin wireless router with this product. It was up and running out of the box in less then 10 min. Would have been less if I hadn't forgotten the order of bringing the network online :)

Cons: color is the only thing I can think to complain about :D

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible router

This review is from: D-Link Xtreme Gigabit Router (DIR-655) Wireless N300, USB SharePort, Gigabit

Pros: Works for a week if lucky.

Cons: Owned the router since late 2012. Six months in, the router starts having connectivity issues; dropped connections to wireless and wired devices, or would maintain connectivity to wireless and wired devices, but would lose connectivity to the modem.

Upgraded firmware and issues seemed to be slightly alleviated. Fast-forward to late 2013/early 2014 and the router has to be restarted at least once a week in order to restore connectivity to the modem. I've tried everything, disabling most services, disabling security, turning off SSID broadcasting, restoring to factory several times, disabling port-forwarding rules, and NOTHING has made any improvement.

The only reason I bought this router was because of all the reviews I read on NewEgg; sadly, I've learned that high numbers of positive reviews don't always reflect a good product.

My guess is that the newer versions of this monstrosity of a router are the ones with all the issues. The older versions must be the ones getting all the five egg reviews.

I'm leaving D-Link and going to try out Asus instead. If you're considering buying this piece of junk, I highly recommend reading all the one and two egg reviews before you do; you'll see why it'd be a poor investment.

Other Thoughts: Avoid like the plague, unless you can find the original/first version.

This review is from: D-Link Xtreme Gigabit Router (DIR-655) Wireless N300, USB SharePort, Gigabit

Pros: it routes

Cons: I used this with the DWA-552. This is the card it reccomends to use with this router. Max speed is 130mbps. 300 is an absolute lie.

5 out of 5 eggsThe Trick Of using D-Link stuff

This review is from: D-Link Xtreme Gigabit Router (DIR-655) Wireless N300, USB SharePort, Gigabit

Pros: D-Link equipment works great when you have a total D-Link network
It Works better than average when its ALL D-link
Better than average means BETTER THAN MOST

Cons: Don't mix your network. If you have a Netgear router you should only hook netgear peripherals to it.

THIS IS A CARDINAL RULE WITH D-LINK.

After fighting this stuff for 20 years I have learned......JUST DONT DO IT................

Other Thoughts: You May just avoid a headache...........and who wants that

1 out of 5 eggsHas to be the worst!

This review is from: D-Link Xtreme Gigabit Router (DIR-655) Wireless N300, USB SharePort, Gigabit

Pros: Allows you to browse the web

Wireless seemed to work fine.

Cons: 0. Installed latest firmware.

1. non-standard NAT -- This HAS to be the worst router I've ever used!! TCP/UDP NAT does not work in a standard way. I ended up swapping it out with an Asus and my life was normal again.

2. MAC address table is not always correct
3. NAT connection table doesn't show all NAT connections
4. I probably could have found more, but chucked it after I discovered NAT was broken.

2 out of 5 eggsRefuses To Hold a Connection

This review is from: D-Link Xtreme Gigabit Router (DIR-655) Wireless N300, USB SharePort, Gigabit

Pros: SharePort software is decent, makes printer sharing and USB hard drive sharing easy. No problems using a USB Hub. Range covered my whole 2000sf house no problem.

Cons: Abysmal connection reliability across Win/MacOS/Android/iOS devices. Drops connections constantly. Devices don't reconnect upon wake.

Other Thoughts: RMAed two of these. This router would be fine if it would just hold a connection.

I experienced this problem across several types of devices. Win7 laptop and MacBook Pro couldn't auto-connect when they woke. Multiple Android phones failed over to 4G while I was browsing the Web with them. iPad and Nexus tablets both dropped connections as well. It was maddening.

Tried basic troubleshooting such as firmware updates and forcing the channel. Didn't make a difference.

When I finally tried another model from another manufacturer, it worked just fine after being placed in the same spot in my house.

Since I had the exact same problem with two units but a subsequent unit from another manufacturer worked fine, I am inclined to believe this model is fundamentally flawed in some way.

1 out of 5 eggsThey don't make them like they used too

This review is from: D-Link Xtreme Gigabit Router (DIR-655) Wireless N300, USB SharePort, Gigabit

Pros: Seemingly nice features,

Cons: I purchased this router to work as a switch. It was not the dhcp server. The device would not send any traffic from my default gateway nor would it communicate to it. I tested the device as a gateway and it would not assign dhcp. I had the item RMA'd. after recieving the second one it had the exact same problems.

Other Thoughts: I puchased this router because the old version (hardware version A) was a great router but it seems the new version ( hardware C) has some issues. I called dlink support and did a firmware update and they concluded both of the devices where damaged. I returned the second one for a refund and purchased another brand.

1 out of 5 eggsUNRELIABLE

This review is from: D-Link Xtreme Gigabit Router (DIR-655) Wireless N300, USB SharePort, Gigabit

Pros: NEWEGG shipped it quick.

Cons: I bought this based on reviews from major magazines. My device is still under warranty. My computers and printers are hard wired into ports on the back. I also have a VOiP phone. My printer kept going off line, and also my wife's computer kept going off line, and back on. My phone kept disconnecting while i was on it making calls. Plus i have VIDEO on DEMAND with my television service, that would not connect. I swapped cables around on the ports and kept getting the same thing. I reset the device to factory settings, and . I called TECH SUPPORT, and got some person who could barely speak English. ( Great, another out sourced job). I informed them of what was going on, and the first thing they informed me was i had bad printer. TECH SUPPORT had NO clue what the heck i was talking about. No, i am not an IT person, but i am self educated in the world of computers. I got so mad at tech support , i just went and bought another brand wireless router. Another thing is, i had written TECH SUPPORT about using switches in the system, and never received a reply. Now, the kicker is, i receive a CUSTOMER SATISFACTION email, and it asks me on the survey to input my case number, which they provide, and also another field to input other info. Well, the page cannot find me or my case number.

2 out of 5 eggsGreat router, if it wouldn't reboot itself all the time!

This review is from: D-Link Xtreme Gigabit Router (DIR-655) Wireless N300, USB SharePort, Gigabit

Pros: Lots of features
Quiet
Great reception
Good speed

Cons: Lack of customer support
Reboots itself for seemingly no reason
Requires reboot for any change you make to the settings
Admin page is buggy and hangs

Other Thoughts: I bought this router a few months ago when I moved into my new apartment. At first, I thought it was great. I have a few things attached to the router; at any given time, two Seagate NAS units and a Boxee Box directly, and my phone, my computer, a Chromecast, and a printer attached wirelessly. It seems to handle all of this well, without sacrificing a lot of speed.

About a month passed, and I realized that the router would reboot itself for absolutely no reason that I could tell. I'd be sitting at my computer, reading a website, and suddenly Windows would tell me I was no longer connected to the network. I would look over at the router, and it would have an orange globe, as opposed to the normal blue globe. I'd wait a couple of minutes, and it'd finally turn blue again and give me back my signal. Every time this happens, if I go into the router settings, my uptime is reset and so is my system log. It always resets my system log, so I have absolutely no clue what's causing it. And this happens a lot. I'm talking about three times a week.

In addition, navigating the router settings is a pain. Most of the time, a page will hang in loading and it'll require a refresh to actually load. And good luck changing any settings; anything you do requires a reboot of the router as if it didn't reboot enough on its own. Opening ports? Requires reboot. Adding DHCP reservation? Reboot. I could understand requiring a reboot for more advanced features, but for port forwarding, seriously?

Worst of all, D-Link's support site is one of the worst I've ever seen. There don't seem to be any working links to phone support or email support, and a link to chat support takes you through an automated roulette of responses to issues that aren't anything like what I'm describing. And it's such a pain to find any support on this site that I'm well past the measly thirty days of support they offer me on this product, ninety if I register it.

So while I'm happy with what this router does when it works right, I'm wholly annoyed with the thing in general. I don't claim to be a network admin, but I've supported network infrastructure before and I feel I somewhat know my way around a network. At this rate, I can't get the thing working right, and I'd be just as happy with fixing it -- if I could even get help doing so -- as I would be just pawning it off and getting another router.
