terrible wifi signal after 4 months

Pros: works fine in the first 3 month

Cons: After 4 months I start to see unstable wifi signal. Wifi signal is unstable and keep kick out/disconnect my iphone6 and ipad. I need to reboot router to make it stable. But in another day or two it starts to kick out my device again and pretty annoy. Try all kinds of combination of setting and none of it works. 802.11b only, g only, n only, different channel, disable auto scan, etc. Google it and found several other users suffer the same issue but no solution so far. Will return/RMA this device.

Still going strong with YouTubes and regular internet usage

Pros: It works and works and works and works. I bought it 5/13/2011, Sold and Shipped by Newegg, my D-Link DIR-655 for just $59.53. I can use it with Wi-Fi Android phone to Chromecast YouTubes to my Smart TV. The speed on this simple D-Link is quite sufficient for my purposes.

Cons: I have had some trouble resetting it on account of letting someone use my admin password to get online with the wi-fi signal. Sometimes I lose the connection. I unplug it and let it rest and then replug the power. I have had problems getting the user name and passwords working, as my memory is not so great, even when I write down everything. I have had too many P.W.s and user names for many apps. It can be a hassle coordinating user names and passwords on devices to work together.

D-Link Xtreme Gigabit Router (DIR-655) Wireless N300, USB SharePort, Gigabit Model #:DIR-655
Item #:N82E16833127215,
NOW COSTS $83.99

Other Thoughts: I am glad that it does not have a processor like the new routers. I am afraid of what to do if the processor fails. And new hi end routers cost too much.

Still going after 15+ years!

Pros: I've always made sure it was well-vented, and it's lasted forever. Features were excellent for its era.

Cons: Early firmwares were rubbish, however, for version A hardware, the 1.35 firmware is rock solid. There will never be any future firmware updates.
NTP will only update through the physical WAN port.

Other Thoughts: I mainly wanted to include this review in case someone searched for the NTP issue I mentioned above. It took me a while to find mention that the router has to be used in "router mode" in order for NTP to function. I've long since moved to more modern router hardware for my internet connection, but still use this device as a wi-fi access point only. It will not update the time neither from the internet nor a LAN time server while no WAN port connection is active. The timestamps in the log will drift, or will be completely wrong after a power failure, without regular time updates. The only option is to manually set the time periodically or after a power cut if in AP-only role.

Lives up to the hype!

Pros: Booted it up with my modem & it worked. I went from 30 megabits per second download speed on my old modem to 90 megabits per second on the D-Link! It tripled my download speed so I'm *happy.

Cons: no cons

Other Thoughts: It was very easy to setup & use. They give you all your router setup info on a little credit sized card you can carry around in your wallet for quick access. The vertical stand is a nice extra that can help improve venting on the router, thereby extending the routers life. I give it 5 stars!

My Second DIR 655 Router

Pros: My first D-Link DIR 655 lasted 14 years so when it started malfunctioning I ordered another replacement which was $100 less than the first one. It handles my network which includes 2 NAS (46TB), 4 computers, 3 printers, 2 tablets and 3 LAN TVs. Installation was simple and fast but had one problem which was my fault. I had to change the router IP address so everything worked as before ( guess I changed the the first router address but didn't remember) so everything was on the same network.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Recommended and this is my second unit.

Unreliable wifi

Pros: Haven't had any issues with wired connections

Cons: I've had this for over two years. When there were only four wireless devices it would crash once every other month. Now with 9+ devices it seems like every day I have to restart the device. Very annoying. The firmware is updated to the latest version from July 2013

Other Thoughts: If there were a firmware update these could fix these issues it should have been released by now. Three years and no fix, they won't be fixing it.

Worked Great...for a day

Pros: Set up is easy, wall mountable

Cons: Device worked pretty good for a day or two. Then it started to get really S L O W... we share an internet off of a wireless bridge (about a 200 ft run) and thought it had to be an issue with the wireless bridges. They were getting 40mpbs throughput. I could not believe that this router could be killing the connection that badly. We were getting speeds of less then 1mpbs standing next to it. I replaced with a different device and everything came on line at full speed. It was, in fact, the router causing the bottleneck. We restarted, re-flashed, everything I could think of to get it on line at full speed and nothing worked.

Other Thoughts: I would not recommend this router to anyone. Please pay a few bucks more and get something that will actually work.=
