3 out of 5 eggsOnce very good

Pros: I had this over 4 years, it even ran dd-wrt fine.

Cons: After 4 years the 5GHz radio died.

Other Thoughts: 4 years ago this was a real nice dual-band gigabit AP. Time has moved on, many better a/b/g/n ones now for a lot less money.

1 out of 5 eggsStay away

Pros: Well when it works its ok but really for 169 dollars its really bad went from a dlink 655 to this and now im done with dlink.

Cons: everything, signal is awful and it needs to be reset every hour or else the bandwidth falls off the end of the world. Then to make matters worse ive done everything to make it better added dd wrt to it port forwarding, dns google, and got all my devices there own static ip. still drops the bandwidth after an hour. start downloading steam games and it works for two minutes then drops my 20 mbps connection which should giver me 1Mb download to 150kbps. dlink stop useing cheap parts in your routers. im done maybe ill come back when you pull your heads out of your a**.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome router

Pros: It's been working for a year now, never needs rebooted. Rock solid

Cons: It was a great router when it was on half price special. Not the best bang for buck at 170

Other Thoughts: I only use this to distribute internet, not local file sharing so I haven't tested the speed limit, nor have I experimented with the dual band technology.

2 out of 5 eggsMediocre at best

Pros: 2.4 ghz band is usually reliable

Cons: 5ghz band is awful. General range mediocre.

Other Thoughts: I live in a 3-story house. My router is on the ground floor but centrally located. Even on the second floor 5ghz reception is terrible; I've long since abandoned 5ghz. 2.4 ghz band usually works fine but why did I pay for a dual-band??

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic router

Pros: Excellent router once flashed with OpenWRT. I have 3 of these in a WDS setup, giving me a full wifi signal everywhere in my house, as well as my garage and backyard.

Cons: Factory firmware is not good. This may be the reason for so many negative reviews. Factory firmware is flaky, my primary router needed a reboot every so often. OpenWRT and DD-WRT will alleviate any bad taste the factory firmware left behind.

Other Thoughts: This router is hardware limited to a 19dBm signal, while some others using the exact same Atheros chipset are capable of signals near the 30dBm range. Do not waste your money on larger antennas, since they will not offer any benefit with the hardware limiting the signal strength. Revisions B1, B2, and C1 are ripe for OpenWRT and DD-WRT. Revision A1 is not supported.

1 out of 5 eggsAvoid. Avoid. Avoid.

Pros: I honestly can't think of one.

Cons: Customer Service is an atrocity against man.
Reliability is shorter than ownership of product.

Other Thoughts: This isn't my first tragic rodeo with D-Link devices. This is now the third router I've had to replace for someone. I don't even want to imagine they spent $100+ on this junk.

Worked for all of a week before I receive a call stating that it wouldn't work anymore. After arriving at the location to inspect the device, the familiar scent of burning electronics was in the air.

A week.

That is shorter than the two months the previous router I serviced from D-Link lasted.

And you know what, I could accept manufacturing defects in a product--it happens--but completely ignoring your customer's requests for assistance?

I submitted a ticket to D-Link, and only receive a half-a---d reply on it. When I requested further support from that reply--they never bothered. I submitted an additional ticket when no one assisted me, just to have them completely ignore that one.

Just stay away from 'em. I would have to say pretty much any other company is probably going to be better than D-Link. Save yourself from a headache now, get your wireless from someone else.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Router

Pros: Easy Setup, Works Perfect, Stable for a year now at full speeds! No signal degradation or problems.

I couldn't stand the stock firmware so I flashed the latest DD-WRT and it works perfectly stable! No issues whatsoever. I've had it on DD-WRT for a year now and it's a great router. Upgraded from two linksys - WRT54GS and a WRT120N

Cons: 5Ghz signal strength is weak in a two-story home, but still works perfect.

2 out of 5 eggsIt works....barely

Pros: Works most of the time. Dual-bands work simultaneously without issue.

Cons: 1. D-Link claims that the USB port on this router works with USB hubs, but I went 0/3 trying to connect a USB hub to it. All USB hubs were different makes & models (some powered, some not). Nothing would work and D-Link customer service was almost useless.

2. The SharePort software is touchy (auto-connect and disconnect don't always work)

3. A number of times this month, the router has had problems connecting to the internet even though there are no problems with my cable modem. Each time it only lasted a few minutes, but was frustrating nonetheless.

Other Thoughts: Wouldn't buy it if I had a second chance.
