Pros: Works much bettter than the westell modem bellsouthgave me to use. Able to handle more traffic and bandwidth than the generic ones you receive from DSL providers.
Cons: Limited up speed.
Overall Review: It works with bellsouth dsl where I'm from.
Pros: This item replaced a modem I've had since signing up with my internet service provider over 5 years ago, my interent speed flucuation has ended and I now have the connection I thought I had and always wanted.
Overall Review: If you have and older DSL modem this is a perfect upgrade, very easy to install and a lot less then what my ISP would have charged for their model. Most ISP now have modem/routers now, for those who already havea router they wish to keep, this is the way to go.
Pros: Plugged it in, Went to 192.168.1.1, It figured out things by itself, i set some little options myself and just put in my log in info for my At&t service, Rebooted and its online.
If your looking to replace the poopy Original Sbc modems, and do not wish to spend that much, this is for you.
Overall Review: Like i said, i got this for my At&t service, i called them and got an estimate of 80 bucks shipped due to them not seeing any problems from their side. Got this for 55 shipped, and newegg even upgraded it to 2 day shipping!
If your wondering, this replaced my Speedstream 4100 which froze during torrent downloads and in world of warcraft, got this installed and its gone, I did have the 4100 since 05 though.
Pick it up, if you just need a regular dsl modem. Loving it so far.
Pros: Cheapest namebrand dsl modem I could find.
By itself works good after some tinkering. (but after everything is set correctly I couldn't visit some websites such as microsoft.com, weather.com, and my playstation 3 couldn't log onto ps network.
As a bridge paired with my netgear router works much better (set modem to bridge, set router to authenticate-if dsl) Then all websites worked including ps3 connection.
Cons: MTU locked at 1500 ( I don't know what that means, but after researching blogs, I think it causes problems with above mentioned websites)
If you use as a bridge, it shouldn't matter, I set my router to 1492 for ATT DSL.
Overall Review: D-Link's website is impressive, but I called their customer support, and I got a foreign call center I believe which was very hard for me to understand, and not very helpful. So I spent a few hours figuring it out on my own. (good luck to you)
Pros: It does auto-detect your basic settings. I am relieved to be able to set passwords over the control of it and view its reports about the many aspects of my adsl connection. Not to mention it's future compatibilities for higher speeds.!
Cons: I don't particularly care for the lack of description for the various internal settings. I want to tweak it to the absolute optimal settings.
Overall Review: I'm finding that the details of providers' connections are not something they wish to share with their customers. I'd emailed my provider 3 wks in advance to give ample time to get settings from them.. to no avail. They didn't even reply.
Pros: excellent modem for the money. Easy to configure and setup
Overall Review: using a dgl 4100 gaming router. excellent pair together. Lag is a thing of the past. Wished I had done sooner
Pros: Setup was a breeze. It detected my AT&T connection instantly. Great D/L and U/L Speeds. On and Off switch on back.
Cons: It can get warm, do not put anything on top of it to cover the lights.
Overall Review: Reviewers that gave this a bad review either bought an incompatible device or did not know how to install it.
Pros: If you know what your settings are, and have set up an ADSL modem, this is nothing new. I have PPPeoE, used the info my ISP gave me and connected, but only halfway.
I have CitCom internet, VCI-0 & VPI-35, modem had no problem recognizing that. The quality is really nice, some people say theirs runs hot, mine is actually cool, it's barley even warm, and this is while downloading 2 rather large files for an extended time.
The build quality of the modem itself is nice, D-Link didn't cheap out.
Small, about the same dimensions as a 8 o.z. flask.
Cons: The power adapter may be a little annoying to you, make sure you have enough plug space because if your power bar is set up horizontally then this might overlap outlets.
When I said this only worked halfway, it was apparently my computers fault. I've had Dial Up for 6 LONG years, and I've connected to friends computers before through wireless and never have had a problem. But I hook this modem up, and apparently the MTU isn't right so It wouldn't load up secure web pages (Yahoo, Myspace, PayPal, Download.com). But it would do all others. I have yet to figure out if this was a Computer problem or modem problem. I ruled out the modem in my trouble shooting and adjusted the MTU through Regedit, which apparenlty dind't work. Since that failed, I tried using a program called Dr. TCP, this can be found on softpedia. So I ran that, rebooted, then tried it and, viola! secure Webpages!
Overall Review: I'm giving this a 4/5, because of the web based configuration utility is REALLY skimpy, and not really helpful as far as options go. They're very few. The manual isn't much help either, it's more of a diagram of the modem and tells you the 192.168.1.1, and default passwords. But the FULL manual can be downloaded as a PDF. That I think is stupid, because you need internet to download! Tech Support wasn't much help either, the number they gave me was to some random lady. She said people call all the time thinking that she's D-Link, so I apologized and hung up the phone.
If you cannot view secure webpages, chances are it's your MTU, or firewall.
