5 out of 5 eggsDIR-655

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

Pros: Stinkin' fast transfers. Tons of settings, this thing is super-configurable. I haven't done more than set up the basics and a few port-forwards, but I'm extremely happy with this.
Gigabit LAN ports make just about everyone happier- helps with moving big files between wired and wireless.

Cons: When you make changes and save, the router must restart in order to take effect. It's like 30 seconds to reboot- but how often are you changing router settings anyway?
Not the fastest Wireless-N anymore, but for the price it's tough to beat.

Other Thoughts: On special, you can get this for less than one Gen. Grant. I'm impressed with how much you do on this. I haven't set up anything on the USB port yet- as I have a file/print server, the likelihood of using it is low.
I replaced a failing WRT54G, which was great, but this is comparably priced and has more standard features (plus faster LAN, faster WIFI, USB). Coverage seems like it's a little better than the WRT54G, 1500ft^2 house, centrally located.
It's been running solid for almost 3 months now with no problems. Props to Newegg's review community!

4 out of 5 eggsGood product so far.

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

Pros: Solid connection

Cons: Not very "user friendly"

Other Thoughts: I've just recently moved to Alabama and needed to purchase a new router. I asked a tech-knowledgable friend what I should buy and he recommended this router. I honestly don't know too much about these kinds of things, but he knew that I would have multiple devices hard wired in for gaming on consoles and PC, and also knew that I would need multiple wireless connections for study groups.

I started out with a great connection on all accounts, even with a bunch of people over at my place using wifi. This lasted for awhile and then I started having some connection issues randomly. I called my ISP and had them replace my modem. This seemed to fix it but then my router wouldn't work properly because of the IP addresses matched.

If you don't know your way around routers and more "complex" internet settings, it might be difficult to solve your own problems using the information provided.

Luckily, I looked up the Dlink support number, instantly got connected to a person when calling, and that person was patient and took the time to explain to me exactly what I needed to do in order to fix the IP address problem and get me online.

I can't say that I'm entirely confident that I won't run into any more problems, but I can't blame that on D-Link. I do feel confident that I can get the problem taken care of with their assistance very quickly.

I recommend buying this router, it is cheap and works great so far. An added bonus is the D-Link customer support.

My case number was C6536140

The ID number of the person assisting me was AR004205

5 out of 5 eggsstrong router...

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

Pros: decent range, gigabit speeds, have yet to find its limits even connecting 8+ wifi devices, and 4 ethernet.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: have pc with gigabit network card to this gigabit router, serving media to 3-4 devices simultaneously, all while multiple wifi devices surf, stream media, download etc... have yet to find its data limits. very reliable, decent signal range. also note i have never encountered lag/connection issues with any device connected to it. past routers seemed to have issues with certain devices. not this one

2 out of 5 eggsCan't hold a wireless connection to save it's life.

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

Pros: Connects at advertised speed.
Easy to set up.
Pretty good range.
Was on sale.

Cons: Wireless signal constantly disconnects and gives me authentication issues. I originally set the router up in WPA2/Auto and it would randomly kick my wireless connections offline and state the connection settings do not match the access point. Upon checking, the router is reporting WEP when in the settings it's on WPA2. After messing around with it long enough, it seems the wireless encryption is just bad. Kicks me offline but leaves me connected to the router, until I have to redo the wifi security settings to get it to stay in WPA or WPA2 for a while. I have the highest firmware version. LAN connection disconnects periodically but doesn't seem to have nearly the amount of problems as the wireless.

Contacted their support, and rather than helping ME, I actually told them tricks to get the wireless to work for a while. Once I told them to take it completely off automatic and manually set the encryption method, it was like the veil had been lifted from their eyes. Wireless would never connect at all until I at least did that. Probably not their fault, I'm sure they got some Super High Intensity Training on the hardware before having to support it.

Other Thoughts: If it's on a crazy low sale, maybe get it. You might get lucky. Otherwise, I wouldn't chance it.

3 out of 5 eggsWorks ok not for the heavy online type

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

Pros: It a ok router for light use I would say

Cons: Not for the gamers I had 3 of these routers over the years while they are friendly with the xbox which is why I bought them they did die within 1 year time if u have heavy traffic going on your network I would say look elsewhere or do research more ^^

1 out of 5 eggsWorked well while it lasted

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

Pros: Lots of options.

Cons: Begun giving problems after one year.

Other Thoughts: I was perfectly happy with this router while it worked. A wide range of options (though their router's UI could use some improvements). Funny enough, not long after the warranty period expired, it begun to give problems. Wireless would randomly turn off and on again. Wired and wireless speeds throttled from 54 Mpbs to 5-15 Mbps (confirmed router problem by connecting straight to modem and by a other router) gave. Connection would randomly stutter, even wired.

Restarting the router would fix the issues, but would replicate within 5 minutes to one hour. Disabling / Defaulting numerous settings and factory reset did not resolve anything. Firmware was also updated.

Unfortunately I'm stuck having to buy a new router after one year, and likely will not buy a D-Link product in the future. Pity as I really enjoyed using this router beforehand.

1 out of 5 eggsDLINK DIR-655

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

Pros: easy set-up

Cons: Worked to begin, but had never great coverage. My neighbor's wireless router who's house is past my bedroom (which houses PC/Router) provides stronger signal than my own device which is 50 feet closer. Then, lately, my web sites wouldn't load any longer. Some would (regardless how slow), most others just timed out. Then it would work again ... somewhat. Contacted CenturyLink who's my DSL provider ... Spent 45 minutes on the phone with them since I assumed it was their fault slowing down my internet speed. Nada, no results. Then I read to bypass the router, and connect the modem directly to my computer ... And sure enough, my web sites were loading again ... with speeds I could comfortably live with. Router back in line, and everything would come to a crawl again.

The crazy thing about it is that I don't even have my PC wireless connected! It's hard wired! And even then I have those problems!!!

I have the latest firmware, even reset it to factory default ... no joy! About to get another router which will definitely not going to be a DLINK!

2 out of 5 eggsDlink routers are REALLY bad

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

Pros: Nice... colors?

Cons: Connection craps out when watching streams or using utorrent. This happens with many d-link models, including this dir-655.

Especially bad for gamers that share connection with others. Somebody else downloading torrents (even at low speed)? Your ping is increased.
