1 out of 5 eggsTerrible Router - Drops Signal Several Times

Pros: Great signal when it works....

Cons: Have had it for 4 months. In this 4 months i have had to restart this router every few hours because it drops signals every few hours. I have several devices connected wirelessly and they all freeze at different intervals because of lost or weak internet connectivity. When you spend this much on a router you shouldn't have to go through this much trouble staying connect. As of now i have gone back to my old DR-655. I did not purchase extended warranty and it was too late to return it as it was past the 30 day return policy.

1 out of 5 eggsDisappointing

Pros: Fast wi-fi speeds, easy to set up

Cons: Large antennae but that is a minor cosmetic thing.

Main reason for the one star is the fact that this modem does not have a DHCP reservation table. You can reserve any active IP addresses by clicking a slider over to 'Enable' but you can only disable a reservation if the device is connected.

Worse, if you try to Reserve more than one or 2 IP addresses, the router stops giving out valid IP addresses and devices cannot connect to the network. This is true for both wired and wi-fi connections. At this point you either set a static IP address on the device or reset the router back to factory default.

Other Thoughts: I have spent hours resetting this router to factory defaults to get all my devices to connect. I like to set static IPs on my devices so I can locate them when I need to but can't do that for every device. I have a Laptop that needs to have a fixed IP address for it to connect to an old machine I have at my office so it needs to be fixed by the router b/c if I set the IP as static on my Laptop, i wouldn't be able to connect to other networks over wi-fi.

There is a firmware fix for Canada region only but it is not available for other regions and I am unwilling to experiment with it since I am not in Canada.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Router

Pros: Worked great, only had on problem and had to call D-link. The directions should mention to make sure the power button is off when you plug it in. Installed what was needed and not joy. turned it off and back on and it hasn't failed or dropped anything since then.

Cons: None yet

5 out of 5 eggsYup, it works

Pros: Pretty simple setup if you've ever messed with wireless router configs before. Nothing new here. Performance is spectacular, range is very good even on the 5band.

Covers a two story, 3500fsf home with no dead spots.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Paired with an Asus PCE-ac68 and the combo works like a charm. Very strong connection and very high and sustained speeds.

4 out of 5 eggsCertainly has DHCP issues. Can't configure to my liking

Pros: D-link is certainly my favorite and I use many of their products. I bought this to replace my stable and working DIR-655 router. I waited for D-link to release AC1900 router in US. I upgraded the firmware to the latest to avoid any known issues. I was hoping for an easy setup but I had to go through a lot of trouble setting up this router. First of all, I kept SSID same for both 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands – bad idea. The devices were constantly getting connected and disconnected. Even after I kept SSID different, the problem continued. I initially thought the issue was only with 2.4GHz connections, I tried all the standard stuff like using the unused (by neighbors) channel, only 20Mhz channel width etc. I tried to match the configuration same as my DIR-655 but nothing really helped. I opened a case with D-link but they didn’t really have much to add other than move my wireless phone away from my router. The phone has always been there with DIR-655. Upon further investigation, I noticed that despite my IP reservation, router was assigning same IP address to other device!!! WHAT?? I assumed that connection and disconnection may have to do with DHCP issues with the router. So I decided to factory reset the whole thing one more time and keep only the basic setup i.e. SSID for each band and admin password setting. I did not reserve any IPs this time. Sure enough, everything since then i.e. almost a week now has been working fine. I hope D-link recognizes the DHCP issues and resolves it. I don’t why D-link tends to remove some good features from older to newer products. I have seen such things with other products too. My DIR-880L is working really well now but the configuration is not up-to my liking.
DIR-655 features that I miss in this router:
1) WPS setup through Web page (not using the physical button).
2) Connection rate and Status of clients connected to the router
3) Access Control to restrict wifi connection during scheduled hours (very useful for parents)
4) Syslog, I should be able to see system log on the admin screen itself. It had a lot of good information in DIR-655 to identify issues quickly.

Cons: DHCP issues.

Other Thoughts: D-link usually listens to their customers and fixes the issues. So I am hoping they will quickly incorporate those missing features I mentioned along with DHCP issues.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing

Pros: Very easy to set up this router. The range on this router is amazing and it shows. My speeds are exceptional.

Cons: Nothing.

Other Thoughts: I was hesitating and looking for a new router for some time. My DIR-655 was starting to dropping its signal multiple times a day so I had to make a decision. I did some research and chose this one. My computer is wireless so speed and range was very important to me and this product doesn't disappoint. D-Link really did a great job on this router.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Stable

Pros: Stable operation. Easy to set up. Nice user interface. Strong signal.

Cons: No way to disable WPS.

Other Thoughts: This router has been operating reliably for me for over a month now. I mostly use the 5ghz band and have found that signal to be stronger than expected when traveling through walls. Through one 20 ga. steel wall and one 6 inch wood/gypsum board wall I get 5 bars and 520mbps.

I have the router in an unsecure location, and would like to disable WPS, but unfortunately there is no way to do that on this router.
