5 out of 5 eggsChamp

Pros: This modem worked like a champ for over 6 years. Even though my cable company never recognized it, I didn't have problems with it. I replaced it with a DOCSIS 3.0 modem, but only because I wanted faster speeds.

Cons: Because it was so small and light, it was pulled sideways by the weight of the cables plugged into it. Pretty minor, though.

5 out of 5 eggsStill going after 5+ years

Pros: Longevity, stability, plug it in and it just works

Cons: Does get hot

Other Thoughts: Had it so long, it moved off my ISP's supported modem list - now they say I have to get a new one before they will troubleshoot issues!

1 out of 5 eggsDLink RMA policy like a death trap

Pros: easy to install, but I'm a technician so i can't say for everyone

Cons: I owned it for 3 months and it suddenly death.

Other Thoughts: Called the tech support to get the case Id for return and it took 30 minutes on the phone with them to do things which seems stupid and pointless to me. I don't know if they have no idea what they are asking or just want people to give up. They asked to send back everything like original and if not they will deduct like manual ($15), stand ($20). I didn't keep those things after month. why just returning the hardware and get back the same thing like other manufacture. The cost to send back to them is $8, they will send me back a new one or a refurbished, and I have to paid for manual and stand $35. Totally, it costs me $43 for returning. I could buy a new one, not Dlink this time, why bother

5 out of 5 eggsGood Cable Modem

Pros: I bought this back in 10/31/2006 and its still works very well. This is much better performance cable modem then ISPs give away or rent to clients. Highly recommended to any one using cable ISP.

Cons: Sometimes if it turned on for long periods of time, it gets little hot. But not as much to remove an egg.

3 out of 5 eggsFine while it lasted

Pros: 1. Gave me my ISP's advertised 15mbps down
2. Compatible with Cox's Powerboost
3. Slim and looks cool

Cons: 1. Died after only 15 months
2. No longer supported by Cox
3. Runs very warm

Other Thoughts: As an FYI for how this modem dies--it randomly looses the upstream signal and reboots. First once every two weeks, and then increasingly more frequently until it's resetting every 30 seconds.

1 out of 5 eggsJunk! Too light for paper weight!

Pros: The amber fault light works well!

Cons: This thing lasted for the first year I owned it and then came the daily resets. Those were followed by the bi-daily resets. Over the last year it got to be as bad as 5 resets in one day! The resets all had to be done manually as it would not reset itself. Spoke to tech support and apparently Dlink is done with this modem entirely! They no longer support it and therefore Cox doesn't support it. "Runs hot" comments are all correct.

Other Thoughts: Don't waste your time and money with this modem at all! If you have Cox as your ISP, they won't support it. If you're going to buy your own modem, give a serious look at the Motorola Surfboard line.

3 out of 5 eggsPerfect until Cox Communications...

Pros: Worked excellent for several years with Comcast...

Cons: Moved to different state and had DSL, recently switched to Cox Cable..Worked for 9 months, then Cox made changes. According to Cox tech support, tried to work with D-Link to get firmware update, with no co-operation from D-Link. No internet connectivity-none.

Other Thoughts: Don't know to blame Cox or D-Link. I just get left holding the bag with a useless Cable Modem. Going to send back to relatives to use with Comcast, hopefully.

1 out of 5 eggsToo slow

Pros: Its a cable modem. A layer one device.

Cons: It is DOCSIS 2.0 and is supposed to have 38Mbps throughput. I have Comcast 16Mbps and it becomes too hot when downloading and shuts off. So it cannot consistently download at half it's certified speed because it is not designed right

5 out of 5 eggsIncompatible

Pros: This was great until D-link chose not to change firmware and it then became incompatible with Cox high speed internet service. So if you have Cox, then you may be in for a surprise one day and your internet take a dump on you. As far as I know it is only for the 202 model.

Cons: Not compatible with Cox.

Other Thoughts: see above
