5 out of 5 eggsStill going strong

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

Pros: I've been using this router for over four years with near-flawless performance. I've had it in multiple apartments, a suburban home, and even a three-story mansion and it's held up fine in all of them. I do tons of online gaming and other bandwidth-intensive activities, and haven't had issues.

At the mansion I was living in with five others, we kept having connection issues, poor signal strength, and generally slow networks. I plugged this router into the network, and suddenly everything works, reaching the whole house, and speeds several times better than the old router. Multiple people streaming Netflix, streaming HD video over the network, online gaming, all at once, and no one had any lag issues.

Cons: Honestly, not many that I can think of. Occasional trouble getting certain games working for hosting servers, but that's about all I can recall.

Other Thoughts: Obviously far from the fastest router available on the market these days, but, unless you have really high-end broadband internet, you probably won't notice.

1 out of 5 eggsDoesn't work with iPad Air

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

Pros: Highly rated on newegg :/

Cons: I have actually had Apple replace my iPad Air first generation because it gets terrible speeds with this router. Turns out it's not the air! It's the router. Something is wrong with it. Yes, I have tried resetting the router to its factory settings.

5 out of 5 eggsstill flawless after 8 months

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

Pros: I bought this router at the beginning of the school year for our apartment, we've had about 10 people over at once with no problems. I've had my connection dropped due to my modem but not this router. I'm impressed.

Cons: The lights are really bright. This is nice in the day but awful at night...I'd recommend covering them in duct tape or electrical tape...like two layers.

Other Thoughts: This was a good deal at 80 bucks, and it still is

3 out of 5 eggsOld router, but great customer support

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

Pros: Very helpful customer support. See details, below

Cons: Router's signal cannot reach far end of house. See details, below.

Other Thoughts: I have owned this router since February 2009. Located at the far end of a subbasement in a split level home, the wireless signal does not reach the top floor at the opposite end of the house. During the past six years, I have had to reset the router twice due to a lost signal. Most recently, today. According to D-Link customer support, the router "lost the connection with the server." As a result I could not connect wirelessly or via ethernet cable to the internet through the router. However, within a half hour, customer support was able to restore the connection. Specifically, Mylene (ID AR004212) was able to walk me through what needed to be done to restore the connection. Amazingly, she did this even though the router was well beyond its one-year warranty period. The restoration took far less than the 15 minutes we were on the phone. I spend at least half that time fruitlessly looking for the Admin password, that I had failed to record in the usual places. I did record it, but found it only after I reset the router.

2 out of 5 eggsVery Disappointed

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

Pros: cheap

Cons: Had this less than two years and constantly resetting and losing connections, IP conflicts when people come and go from the network.I have a house with 17 devices turning on and off, phones coming and going. Every time One person comes home and reconnects, someone else gets an IP error. Live gaming on Xbox was a nightmare.
My wife's laptop could not connect at all. Ever.

Finally last week it stopped connecting all together. (light connecting to modem is out). Huzzah! I'm free!

4 out of 5 eggsBeen Great

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

Pros: Great features, good interface. It has held up well over the past 5 years.

Cons: No new firmware. This router could have a lot more life in it if Dlink had decided to continue supporting their product.

Recently the router has been dropping signal. I had read some fixes from other uses and go to the point that I was turning off all the features I liked, QoS, SPI, mixed mode. With all the features turned off and N only mode, I feel like I have and old Linksys WRT-54G...

Other Thoughts: Sadly I will be upgrading my router soon. I wouldn't have to if Dlink would have continued support for it's product more than just a handful of years.

1 out of 5 eggsDO NOT BUY!!!!

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

Pros: -None

Cons: -Drops wireless signal all the time and I have to unplug to reset
-Drops wired items as well without warning or the lights changing
-Have tried every supposed internet fix and setting makes no difference

Other Thoughts: Newegg should not be selling this router any longer for the pure reason of the hell it has put soooo many customers through.

1 out of 5 eggsFailing after 4 months

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

Pros: Was a fast, reliable router for 4 short months.

Cons: Bought this router on 10/26/2014 . Now the wireless has started failing. The signal just drops off the face of the planet. The only way to get it back is to RESET (not reboot) the router to it's original settings. Then it goes away again shortly thereafter. I've applied the latest firmware with no success. I was hoping the bad reviews were oddballs...but here I am....stuck like the others with a busted modem that's past Newegg's return period.

1 out of 5 eggsConstatly Disconnects

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

Pros: I like the guest network.

Cons: I purchased two of these. They both continually disconnect the wireless devices from the Internet and daily, bump the wired users offline.
