Solid router and good for streaming. 05/24/2013
I took a good week or two to test this unit and to be honest I am very pleased with it. I have owned a few D-Link products in the past and none has failed to impress me.
The router is very very easy to set up out of the box. Like most routers, it comes with a small piece of paper that shows you what the wireless network's name will be and it's password. Once you go to the IP address to adjust the router settings, you're pretty much set.
I have tested the USB option included with this router and have found it to be very handy when watching a movie from the living room with my HTPC. Streaming isn't the fastest but not terribly slow either. To be honest having that option/feature there is just great.
The router is great if you are looking for an upgrade and if you are looking for features that is included with this. As far as performance goes, it really didn't improve over my old router. The only difference is that this had more features. To each there own, it may benefit you.
Packaging was great and nothing showed up as a surprise, would highly recommend this to a friend or anyone.
The price for this unit to me is on the steep side, if it were to hit the $99 mark or so this would be the perfect buy.
The included power adapter cable is short since I have my router on top of a shelf. Not a big con, wish it were longer.
It looks way different from a lot of the other router designs. I think it's more "space saving" since it's like a big soda pop can. I like it though, somewhat different from the crowd.
The router is doing it's job perfectly and I have not experienced any kind of lag or disconnecting issues. This will make a perfect upgrade for anything below a wireless N router. Though again the price may steer some away.
