4 out of 5 eggsworks well

Pros: Works as advertised.

Cons: The intranet login site is very finicky. Sometimes it has demanded only a Chrome browser. For this minor hassle I deducted an egg.

Other Thoughts: Upgrade the firmware to DD-WRT for more options.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Device

Pros: I used to have DIR-655, DIR-625 models from Dlink. I liked them all in the past. But with increased demand of wifi connection quality for video calls through apps, I decided to choose an "high-end" yet affordable device. DIR-880L is an excellent choice:
1) wifi signal is instantly stronger and longer range than prior models. Quality of video/voice calls through wifi improved
2) simplified management interface. The interface becomes lot more intuitive
3) The "reserved IP" feature is lot more stable. Old 655 model has a problem with IP address reservation

Also, Dlink customer support is great. An agent (ID=AR004620) helped me to resolved an network issue (Ticket#=C6653331)

Cons: I hope a few things will be added to the next firmware release:
1) time schedule for "Guest Wifi" access. For example, my home wifi is on from 7am-11pm everyday. But, I only want guest wifi to be on Sat & Sun only from 3pm-10pm. This was possible for old model 655, but not for this new model
2) QoS: there are only 11 space for QoS but I have 25 devices connected on the network (1 NSA, 5 digital phones, 3 network printers, 2 PCs, 2 Chromeboxes, 2 network media players, and the rest of iPad and Android). Since I am quite technical, I hope to be able to further control QoS setting--allow advanced users to edit the technical categories of "Highest", "High", "Medium" and allow users to add categories with customized settings
3) The web interface should add "system management" tab to allow users to click a button to reboot the router without going downstairs
4) Web filter: currently only allow digits like 1.1.2.3 but I hope they will allow words like "google.com"
5) I hope to see "help tips" for each setting so that users can read those tips and decide whether to turn features on or not.

Other Thoughts: Currently, with many of us are using iPad and android devices, the need for a high-end consumer router with strong capability of traditional wired traffic handling (PC web surfing and file access to NAS) and the current demand of a strong and reliable wifi is great. After using Dlink for over 10 years, I know Dlink produces offer consistent reality and quality. However, I have been waiting on Dlink for over 3 years for a worthwhile router to come out. This 880L is the one with the best quality/price ratio and with simplified user interface yet with enough control to set the router.

5 out of 5 eggsUpgraded Wifi Router

Pros: 3 external antennas, easy setup, 3.0 USB port, Top Notch Customer Service Support, excellent reliability, established brand.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: This is an upgraded router from another DLink (DIR-655) that I've had for 6 years. I purchase another brand starting with letter "N" but had one too many drop signals. I've decided to go with this model after reading positive reviews. Customer service rep (Leny/Case# C6649922) was quick and professional in resolving my setup issue. Thanks DLink!

5 out of 5 eggsSuper Router!

Pros: Dual Band goodness. Very easy to set up. Lots of options.

Cons: It's huge!

Other Thoughts: I bought this to replace my aging DGL-4500 and I have to say, I couldn't be happier. It's nice that this router can simultaneously broadcast in both 2.4GHz and 5 GHz at the same time.

The setup was very easy, even when assigning static IP addresses to all the wired and wireless gadgetry that I have in my apartment.

Setting up the guest network was just as simple.

I will say, the unit itself is ginormous. Which may or may not affect your decision to purchase.

All in all a very nice wireless router.

1 out of 5 eggsNo MAC filtering on this router

Pros: The color is nice.

Cons: This router does not allow you to see MAC address or do MAC filtering. Also, there are no 3rd party firmwares that support this router. WiFi range is not good on this router. I have several security cameras on the property and at distance, they often drop. AC speed slow.

1 out of 5 eggsPort Forwarding/Virtual Server only for 15 devices!

Pros: It's fast, stable and nice/clean UI, good range

Cons: Limit of 15 devices for Port Forwarding/Virtual Server!

I consider myself an average user, but I do have bunch of IP cams that needs to be accessed outside the network. Hence first feature that I was looking for is to configure port forwarding (in Dlink it's called virtual server which seems backwards to me coming from Netgear) and I was surprised to find out that this high end router only allows up to 15 devices to be configured in Virtual Server or Port Forwarding. If they increase the limit beyond 15 devices via firmware update, it's a 5 stars from me.

Other Thoughts: I've updated from R7000 because it was having compatibility issues with some of the clients. Comparing to R7000, The both have about the same 5Ghz range, but DIR-880L has better reach with 2.4Ghz band. The throughput is slightly better with the R7000, but overall browsing experience I would give this to DIR-880L, It feels snappier to browse internet, stream HD videos etc...

Manufacturer Response:

We appreciate the feedback as we take the input seriously and we are sorry to hear that you are dissatisfied with the DIR-880L.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks with most ISP Services

Pros: Works with most ISP services and modems...Users should be aware that using a ISP modem with a built in router is not preferred...A stand alone ISP modem is preferred.

Also works great as a wireless Bridge.

DHCP problems have been resolved in recent FW updates.

Cons: Router web page is not as complex as with older model routers. Web page and features may or may not have what some users expect or need.

Other Thoughts: Please visit the D-Link forums for help and information on the DIR-880L. Experienced users to help out and good support information.
