This review is from: D-Link Cloud Router 5700 (DIR-865L), Wireless AC 1750, Dual-Band, Gigabit Ports, USB SharePort, mydlink enabled

Pros: Easy setup and familiar DLink interface

Cons: Doesn't support loopback, and stopped working.

Took a chance and purchased this relatively new device in December of 2012. Struggled for a while with it trying to verify my port forwards were working by using loopback, but finally learned that the device doesn't support it. After settling that this feature wasn't on this device (but was on my DIR-655) I've been using it for about 6 months. Last week or two family has been complaining about "no internet" or "can't print" from various PCs. Originally thought it was ISP problem but they came and shored up the outside connections. Computer internet/printing/lan problems still continued and we noticed that the router indicators would extinguish (globe) or go amber (power) when this occurred. Finally verified it wasn't the ISP or cable modem, as bypassing the router allowed perfect internet access to the one direct connected PC. Hooked up my old DIR-655 (glad I saved it) and the network is working fine again.

Other Thoughts: Unfortunately missed out on RMA period, working to pursue warranty coverage from dlink.
