Had some hardware problems but they can be fixed

Pros: Router plug and play and wireless setup is easy to set up.

Cons: After a couple of years, the router had a pitfall and could not find in user manual where my problem was at. Had to call support to fix the issue which was done after a hard reset.

Other Thoughts: Customer service rep Randy Badge ID AR004232 Was very helpful in assisting any trouble. Customer service was fast and easy to talk to and walked me through the process. Woul recommend Randy again to anyone having problems with D;Link hardware

Not built to last

Pros: When it works it's a decent router

Cons: Worked fine for about 10 months then started to flake out.
It randomly stopped routing traffic so I turned it into an WAP only and got a new router/firewall. This worked fine for another month or so.
After a while trying to stream anything over wireless was useless.
Eventually the NICs on the thing started jabbering basically taking out my home network with a bunch of malformed transmissions. As soon as this device was disconnected from the switch my network came back online.

Other Thoughts: Ended up putting my old D-Link 524 I bought in 2004 back into service as a WAP and what do you know it still works. I thought I could count on D-Link after having my DL-524 up and running for close to 10 years, but I guess they don't make them like they used to.

Aweful

Pros: I like that is has a usb media port, but i don't use it so that may not work either.

Cons: Unfortunately, I bought this product at the store without looking at the reviews. I literally have to reset my router every time I get on my computer because it is so slow. It doesn't drop the connection completely, I just get super slow speeds. On my Desktop I have to reconnect to the stupid thing everytiime I restart. Even then sometimes i have to connect more than once. If that wasn't bad enough, the customer service has been hard to contact. I guess i'll keep trying, but these reviews are accurate. This thing sucks.

Don't Buy

Pros: None any more...

Cons: After just under 2 months the wireless ability of this router quit working. I've been fighting their tech support for a week to get an RMA number to replace the unit.

Other Thoughts: What's happened to D-Link? They used to make some of the best routers on the market. No so much any more, and they back them with terrible support. I'm an IT professional, and buy dozens of routers for various purposes a month. I used to be almost 100% D-Link. After numerous failures lately, I'm done with D-Link. Find another solution and stay away from D-Link.

Died in 2 months...

Pros: Simple and fast router. Great admin interface. Plenty of features that are easy to use.

Cons: My unit died in just under 2 months of use.

Other Thoughts: I'm a long time D-Link fan, but this router has me at odds with this company. I've never had a router live such a short life. And to make matters worse, I can't seem to get their tech support to respond to me to get the unit repaired. I guess I'll have to move on to another brand.

Kinda sucks

Pros: Looks nice. Easy to set up.

Cons: Drops internet. Would not read external HDD.

Other Thoughts: Bought this is mid-June, 2013. Couldn't try it out til mid-July, after my 30 day return policy was over. Set up was E through my Ipad. But that's where the good news stops.
I bought it as a backup to my Buffalo Router which was 100% flawless but single-band. The Dlink immediately started dropping the internet connection and lagging in video compared to the Buffalo. And the external hard drive the worked perfectly on my Buffalo would not even show up on the Dlink.
If I had days left, I would return it. But I guess I'll just throw it in the closet and hope for a firmware upgrade.

not happy

Pros: no eye searing blue lights, easy interface

Cons: i bought this to replace a 3 year old DIR-655 hoping to get better HD streaming and better overall wireless performance by using 5GHZ to avoid overlapping with my neighbors. I got neither one. wifi takes forever to connect, has less range and still drops out more than my old 655 even using the exact same channels. latest firmware, still no change. This was my third D-Link router, might be the last.
