D-Link Wireless N750 Dual-Band Router (DIR-835) Gigabit, QoS, USB SharePort
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: This is hopefully the last update I'll share with you about this router. As I said before I needed a dual-band adapter for the 5Ghz band and I received it today. Also as I expected, the dual-band functionality of this router works like it should! So far at this point the router is getting its fifth egg.

Cons: It seems weird that I get five bars of signal strength from the 2.4Ghz frequency and at the same location I only get one bar with the 5Ghz frequency. I bought the D-Link Wireless AC 1200 Dual Band Adapter (DWA-182) with very good reviews. As of now I'm not too worried because it doesn't seem to be dropping the signal and my speed test shows I'm getting a 27mbps download, and 5mbps upload, so as long as it stays that way I can't complain. It's much better than I was getting before on my old, junky equipment.

4 out of 5 eggs not so very angry customer 10/08/2013

This review is from: D-Link Wireless N750 Dual-Band Router (DIR-835) Gigabit, QoS, USB SharePort

Pros: THIS IS AN UPDATE OF "very angry customer"

After I trashed this router and warned people not to get it, I tinkered with it some more and realized that it does indeed work. I had to upgrade, downgrade, then upgrade the firmware again and it seems to work just fine now with the hard-wired PC, the 2.4Ghz band, and the WEP security (for the Wii).

As for the 5Ghz frequency, I understand now that my N adapter is only 2.4Ghz and cannot see a 5Ghz frequency. I originally said my 5Ghz band did not transmit but I will be ordering a new, dual-band N adapter, that will see the 5Ghz transmission. Hopefully I am right about all this and I will be able to clear my router's bad name that I have given it.

Other than the 5Ghz issue, the entire router works perfectly, at least for now! I will give another update and hopefully that last egg when I receive my dual-band adapter.

Cons: This router gave me a headache to get it working but perhaps a bit of that was on my end as a consumer.

Other Thoughts: I wonder how many of these other negative posts were made in a haste and not corrected...

D-Link Wireless N750 Dual-Band Router (DIR-835) Gigabit, QoS, USB SharePort
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: um...I guess it looks cool, like it would actually do something...

Cons: Can I give it zero eggs?? My OOBE was terrible. Where do I begin? I'll cut to the chase; it didn't work, period. I have configured many routers over the years and this was a big disappointment. First it would not transmit any wireless signal with the most basic settings. I also could not use WEP on the 2.4GHz frequency band (for the Wii). I updated the firmware and the 2.4GHz band transmitted, but still not the 5Ghz and still no WEP. I went in and reset it to defaults and now nothing works - not even the wired PC. This router would not even do the bare minimum...

Other Thoughts: This is the worst router I've ever touched. I'm very disappointed in D-Link.
