This review is from: D-Link DIR-880L Wireless AC1900 Dual Band Gigabit Cloud Router
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.
Pros: Work great, no dead pixels, plug and play.
Cons: Asus did not write any customized driver files or ICM files for this monitor but the generic driver works fine and it looks great.
Other Thoughts: Bought two of these.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Its plug and play with no problems.
Other Thoughts: Had a second remote that came with my Hauppage TV card and that remote works with this IR receiver also. The Hauppage TV remote receiver requires special drivers for all the functions of the remote, but this one does not so I tossed the Hauppage receiver and just use this USB one for both remotes and it works great.READ FULL REVIEW
