Great router... Not so great power supply

D-Link Whole Home Router 1000 (DIR-645) Wireless N300, SmartBeam Coverage, Gigabit, USB SharePort
D-Link Whole Home Router 1000 (DIR-645) Wireless N300, SmartBeam Coverage, Gigabit, USB SharePort

Pros: Setup is a breeze, Whole house coverage was achieved, enough advance settings to keep most techies happy.

Cons: Bad power supply capacitor(s)- On the second day the unit turned off mid day, so using a multimeter determined the power supply was dead. Deterred from spending anymore money on this upgrade and being familiar with electronics I cracked open the power supply and changed the faulty 10μf 50v capacitor for a fresh one. Multimeter showed it was working at a steady 5V. Re-plug in the unit and sure enough it worked, once I pressed the power button though the capacitor blew again. I replaced it with a 22μf 50v capacitor and haven't had a problem since.

Overall Review: Purchased this to replace a WRT54G, quite impressed with it's performance so far. Hopefully it will last as long as my last router.

CORSAIR CX Series CX430 430W 80 PLUS BRONZE Active PFC ATX12V & EPS12V Power Supply
CORSAIR CX Series CX430 430W 80 PLUS BRONZE Active PFC ATX12V & EPS12V Power Supply

Pros: Low cost, High amps on 12v rail and easy to install.

Cons: Corsair rebate is hit and miss.

Overall Review: The last Corsair product I will probably buy. Corsair left a sour taste in my mouth since they gave me the run around and never sent the rebate claiming I sent the wrong UPC code.

Great product
