Pros: Fast gigabit wired transfers, Solid performance, I don't have the reboot issues others described. Wireless AC for when more devices are available.
Cons: My cordless phone is 5ghz which interferes with the 5ghz wireless on the AP causes random disconnects. Probably the same issue others complained of but don't realize why. I just disabled the 5ghz and use 2.4 ghz speed is same and it seems to give me better range anyway.
Other Thoughts: I recommend to set up the router just enough with a wired connection to perform the firmware update. There's not much you can buy these days that you don't have to do an update to for it to work right. I have this router set up behind another router from at&t and it auto configured itself behind that router itself and I had internet access immediately, my old router it took quite a bit of manual configuration to get working. Port forwarding works great, I have several apps forwarding ports through both routers to my internal network and I have no issues. Not sure what others could be complaining of in regards to this. All in all this router has been great from day 1 for me. When the day comes that I need to use the 5ghz band for wireless AC when more devices support it I will have to upgrade my cordless phone. Other than that this router is flawless and I can't fault d-link for the interference with my phone. I would recommend this router.READ FULL REVIEW
