1 out of 5 eggsWhen you buy DLink don't expect user friendliness or basic features

Pros: - Beautiful looking device
- Cheap

Cons: - No easy AP mode or wireless bridge configuration
- GUI is not user friendly at all
- Not many online resources for configuration details or help
- Forum denizens from DLink seem snarky and unhelpful

Other Thoughts: So I bought this router to temporarily use as an AP since it was cheaper than most APs when I saw it on sale, what I got was a configuration nightmare that I gave up because clearly the configuration was not going to be worth the hassle. So there is not AP or wireless bridge mode that is easily configurable, I had to go on the DLink forums, which did not have this specified router, and when I tried looking for my issue I noticed that a.) one of the forum DLink Super Users or whatever they were called were being snarky to someone that was asking the questions I needed answering, which brings us to b.) the snarky person implied that DLink has taken these modes out of their products and they gave the answer "if you wanted an AP then you should have bought an AP" and that "DLink took the AP mode out because nobody wants that function and it takes away from the functionality of the router" or something to that extent, this is a basic function of a wireless router not some useless feature. This is actually the second DLink router that I've had that when I went to use this function it was not there, the first was one of their gamer fuel routers from several years ago, and until they put this feature back in and make their GUI's a little more user friendly I'm not going with DLink for my networking needs again until they put in little more foresight into their products to help provide for their customer's basic needs in a router, which is a shame because they have some pretty awesome looking routers.

4 out of 5 eggsEasy setup, works as I'd expect for this type of router

Pros: -Pretty much just plug and play
-5Ghz band works darn well
-Covers my small apartment completely

Cons: -The 2.4 Ghz band seems to have a bit of a lag on my iPhone. It takes a second or two sometimes to begin loading images but is pretty fast when it does start loading. I don't notice this at all on the 5Ghz.
-No Gigabit ethernet

Other Thoughts: I picked this up on sale for $30 to replace a router I got about 5 years ago (also for about $30). For that price I think it's a great deal if you don't need a fancy router. Don't expect this to cover a large area but if you've got a small apartment it should work well.

4 out of 5 eggsGood product at a great price!

Pros: 30 bucks was my selling point. So far works great and getting better speed and range than my 5 year old Lynksys.

Cons: Configuration could be easier but if you have some knowledge of routers you won't have a problem. If you don't set up could be tricky.

Other Thoughts: On sale for 30 bucks you can't go wrong. Good speed and range, worth the money.
