1 out of 5 eggsWorst router I've ever had

This review is from: D-Link Wireless AC1200 Dual Band Gigabit Cloud Router (DIR-860L)

Pros: Different looking than normal router.

Cons: Very weak wireless signal, can't even cover 900 sq ft. you won't get signal for a house more than 1000 sq ft. Apple product and Samsung Product both can't connect and keep searching. Laptop may barely receive signal.

2 out of 5 eggsNot so good

This review is from: D-Link Wireless AC1200 Dual Band Gigabit Cloud Router (DIR-860L)

Pros: Great wired gigabit speed.

Cons: Horrible speed over wireless n

Other Thoughts: Super fast shipping (as always from Newegg)! And it would have been a great price, had the router even come close to meeting the advertised wireless speeds. It cranked along at about 125 mbps wired but could barely manage 18mbps wireless n. Changing security settings, channels, firewall, etc had no effect. My old Belkin on the same connection is still pushing about 35 mbps with all settings in auto, and the range on the Belkin is still better than this D-Link. . RMA'ing it, but paying for return shipping for something that doesn't perform the way it is supposed kinda sucks.

5 out of 5 eggsNo Problems since install

This review is from: D-Link Wireless AC1200 Dual Band Gigabit Cloud Router (DIR-860L)

Pros: Everything just works. Increased range and speed over my old Buffalo WHR-HP-G54 802.11b/g router .

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I am not doing some port forwarding and using OpenDNS for filtering. Multiple devices, both wired and wireless. Handles everything else perfectly. No complaints, would buy it again.

2 out of 5 eggsPoor signal

This review is from: D-Link Wireless AC1200 Dual Band Gigabit Cloud Router (DIR-860L)

Pros: New tech (consider but since other brand has the same tech)

Cons: Poor signal which way worst than my old Netgear N router.
Size is not compact that you need to have it stand by itself alone.
I purchase this because I was looking for stronger signal and faster transfer rate, but poor signal that I need to purchase another wireless extender. It never happens to me that I need signal extender in the same house for my past two wireless router (netgear & linsys)
Size is kind of big.

2 out of 5 eggsPrice is great. Router has IPV6 bug

This review is from: D-Link Wireless AC1200 Dual Band Gigabit Cloud Router (DIR-860L)

Pros: price
fairly strong wifi signal
Newegg ROCKS!

Cons: IPV6 DNS bug
mine may have had defective 2.4 GHz radio
DLink customer service nonresponsive

Other Thoughts: I purchased this DIR-860L router with high hopes after signing up for Comcast cable Internet. All my network gear is DLink (other than my DSL router). It is significantly less expensive than other routers in its class. The WiFi signal was a little weaker than my old Actiontec Q1000, but it reached everywhere in my 2-story home.

However, there is a firmware bug that passes through the Comcast DNS servers, even when I specifically configured OpenDns servers. It passes both the IPV6 OpenDns and the IPV6 Comcast DNS servers.

I could not figure out how to turn off IPV6 in the router. The closest setting is to configure IPV6 for local routing only, which did not prevent the DNS issue. I don't need local IPV6 routing on my home network; all my local traffic is on the same subnet. I just wanted to turn it off. A Google search will turn up this same issue with IPV4, but it seems DLink has resolved the IPV4 issue.

A question posted via DLink's support site went unanswered for a week. It took a long time for them to address the IPV4 DNS issue.

Mine may have had a defective 2.4 GHz radio. When I first set it up, and ran Speedtest, I received 8Mbps download/upload on the 2.4 antenna from less than 10 feet away in the same room. The same test when connected to the 5GHz antenna showed 56Gbps down/12 up. Once I completed the configuration, I never could connect to the 2.4GHz SSID again. I tried with multiple devices, tablets, laptops, and cell phones. It didn't work even with the security turned off. It may yet have been a configuration issue, but I returned the router for the IPV6 bug before spending much time on the 2.4 issue.

I purchased an Asus RT-AC66R (same as U) and it is working flawlessly. Yes, it is twice the price, but it is a much better router, with a significantly stronger WiFi signal and much more configuration options in its firmware. I get the full bandwidth of my DSL Internet connection on both the 2.4 and 5 GHz band.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing wifi!

This review is from: D-Link Wireless AC1200 Dual Band Gigabit Cloud Router (DIR-860L)

Pros: My apartment complex is very overcrowded on standard 2.4 ghz wifi channels, but this allows me a great connection. Even in adjacent rooms, my laptop gets the same speeds as my desktop, which is connected by ethernet cable. Very easy to set up as well.

Cons: No complaints at all.

5 out of 5 eggsD-Link Wireless AC1200 Dual Band Gigabit Cloud Router (DIR-860L)

This review is from: D-Link Wireless AC1200 Dual Band Gigabit Cloud Router (DIR-860L)

Pros: Wifi broadcasts strong all throughout my house ~1500 sq ft on both 2.4 GHz and % GHz bands. The D-Link app that you can download is also a nice feature, it makes monitoring my sons online time easy to manage and safe browsing. The cloud feature is also very nice, with my WD passport attached to the USB port on the back im able to access my media from any device very easily. I am also a fan of the design.

Cons: The power cord is very short making its location very limited, and as i have a monster power strip i plug everything into it was difficult to place it far enough away from my computer so it wouldnt hinder the wifi signal. It would also be nice to have the rest of the LEDs indicating the LAN ports.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid

This review is from: D-Link Wireless AC1200 Dual Band Gigabit Cloud Router (DIR-860L)

Pros: Solid performance and wireless devices stay connected

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: Compared to my DGL-4300, this is leaps and bounds better. Devices stay connected and the 5.0Ghz channel seems to be pretty strong as well.

2 out of 5 eggsNot like my old Dlink

This review is from: D-Link Wireless AC1200 Dual Band Gigabit Cloud Router (DIR-860L)

Pros: Fast Wifi
Gigabit wired
dual band 2.4/5g

Cons: DHCP labeling buggy
USB 3.0 doesn't just affect 2.4G speeds a little, it makes it crawl

Other Thoughts: Upgraded from a DIR-628, mainly to get the gigabit wired and dual band wifi and otherwise expected same quality/features as the 628.

I like to configure my router with specific IP's - it helps when looking at logs. This box allows DHCP reservations like my old router, but is somehow still limited to the same list of only 26 IP's despite an increase in memory. Plus, in the old router, i worked around it by reserving an IP, giving it a name, booting device, and then deleting the reservation, it would still keep the assigned IP as long as the PC was no off the network longer than the DHCP timer I set of 2 weeks. Well the DIR-860 would always reassign it to a new address after a reboot instead of keeping the IP and name.

Also, a lot of devices I have (apple TV, some theater equipment, etc) don't broadcast a name, so when viewing the DHCP list, it's hard to figure out what the device is by just a MAC and an IP. I used this to check the router occasionally to see who is on my network (make sure the neighbor doesn't somehow get on it). It seemed no matter what I did, it was hard to get all the IP's named and these devices kept showing up blank.

The router also sometimes lost visibility to all the DHCP dynamic connections, making it impossible to add them to a virtual server, or schedule, or other apps. The old DIR-628 never lost names, whether reserved or dynamic.

I also was hoping to use the USB port for a small file server to contain some files I didn't want to store on my NAS that is sometimes taken offline. But, forget using the USB 3.0. My 2.4G internet Download speed went from 30MBps down to less than 3 just by enabling the device. Even if the device was idle (used a protable WD passport drive).

This was enough to frustrate me and send it back, and am going to switch to Netgear after having been a long time Dlink fan.
