Living in a WIFI crowded place. Thought to buy this "high-gain" wifi router to improve WIFI speed after had enough with Bell original WIFI router. It turned out WIFI speed is 20% slower than Bell @ 2.4GHZ and similar speed to Bell 5GHZ.
Don't buy. Returning it tomorrow!
Works just fine. Does what an average wireless router should do. Make sure it's placed in an open environment and there should be no troubles. Works great streaming with phones and tablets. It also works 80ft into my backyard.
We got this router because I got a Samsung S7 and it wouldn't connect with our old one. It works fine - we don't notice much of a difference between this one and our previous one which was about 4 years old. I bought this because it was mid price and came with fairly good reviews - so far so good.
Though the wireless speeds are decent (in its price range), your bottleneck in this specific device is going to be your hard-line connection. Most likely not to your internet speed (unless you pay lots for your plan), but transfers between other devices.
With gigabit ethernet connections, you can transfer at virtually the maximum write speed of the receiving computer's hard drive. That can work out to roughly 30 MBps (ie. 240 Mbps, notice the capital/lowercase B). But in the case of this drive, a single ethernet connection is limited to a theoretical maximum of 100 Mbps which is 12.5MB/s. That's the speed of writing to a decent flash drive these days. This could theoretically be a bottleneck to your internet speed in the coming years too... although I have my doubts many will be affected by this.
I am writing this review specifically because I believe this product takes advantage of normal consumer knowledge and oversight. It advertises itself as a high-performance router, but gigabit ethernet is a very standard thing in this price range... shame on you, D-Link.
If you want transfers between computers quickly, this isn't the router for you. If you use one computer or NAS as storage and transfer often between, this isn't the router for you. If range is your only real concern, this could be a very beneficial router in its price range.
Performance: I noticed a significant speed difference coming form a G router. Therefore, I was very satisfied with the speeds I was receiving. The household has three laptops, three cell phones, an iPod and a TV and the router is handling it without missing a beat.
Ease of Install: easiest router installation ever. Basically just plugged it in and used the provided password. It was ready to go out of the box!
Value: I took a star off mainly because even though it was on sale at the time of purchase, they lowered the price more so after a week and a half!
Overall: I had a very good experience with this product. I would recommend it!
I ungraded my internet with Roger Cable and really didn't see a change. My router was about 3 years old. I don't use many wired connections but was looking for improved Wifi speeds. I was really impressed after I installed this one. Overall everything over the net just runs faster. glad I bought this model.
Bought this unit today and returning tommorrow. Biggest problem was i used parental control to block internet to connected devices that includes my 1 laptop and childrens Ipads. It worked and blocked internet access at configured time but here is the challenge. If you need Internet access temporarily or say temporarily want to unblock a device you are out of luck. I connected the Router via ethernet cable to my laptop to get into Admin interface but cannot since the laptop is also in the network block list. I dont understand why i cannot log in to admin interface if connected to router via ethernet cable. Chat with Customer service who is far from understanding the issue forget about resolving it.
Got this to replace my TP-Link TL-WR1043ND that started dying after 4+ years of yeoman service. This piece of scrap plastic is going back today for a refund, and I'm ordering ANOTHER TP-WR1043 (it says a lot about an item that is still in production after six-plus years and still gets good customer reviews...). Chose the DIR-822 based on past D-Link experience, the supposed extended range. "Shoulda knowed ", as they say -- if it sounds too good to be true, it likely is. Even breaking down data-wise, the radio in my old WR1043 STILL has almost twice the range of this unit! But that's a minor disappointment compared to the actual performance, which is ABYSMAL. Wired links are slow, but almost tolerable. Wireless is a JOKE -- not only shorter range than expected, but through-put is horrible, even with the receiver just a few feet away -- that is, if it even stays connected long enough to get measurable data. In short, given its poor performance, this unit is very poor value, even at the on-sale price I paid. NOT RECOMMENDED
It takes only a few seconds to connect the internet modem and router.
Just picked this up. Very easy to install and is very reliable. Good purchase.
I search around and looked at other reviews. I'm glad I bought this one. The price is very good.
This is a great AC router for the boxing day price. This router solves several problems that I currently have with just the Shaw router with WiFi. First problem is the extended Wifi reach that extends the new AC wifi to my room to allow me to watch netflix on my Apple TV. The second problem or perhaps a pro is the AC aspect of this router that gives a few extra MB/s boost; up to 11MB/s wifi speed versus 7 or 8MB/s that I got with N.
However, as with all products there is a caveat and that is to migrate everyone on the old router to the new and create a bridge from the old modem, or simply let everything co-exist on two separate routers. I chose the latter but it makes it difficult to figure which network a device may be on. For example I cannot stream to my Apple TV until I turn on Wifi on my Mac Mini since the Apple TV is wifi only.
Great cheap product, does AC. Great buy.
Bought this when it was on sale which is good for the price. Setting up is quite easy just like any other routers. However, given the numbers of antennas, the range is not as impressive as other routers. However, no complain
always. 100% Recommended.
This router working awsome.i bought on special.verry good wifi range and now i have the connection every in my home from first floor to basement and the back yard to next street.i am verry satisfied with d-link routers.because i tryed tp-link routers. this routers are not good performance like d-link routers.d-link routers are the best for me
I bought this router on Boxing Day special for [price].i tested tp-link router c5,c7,c9.these routers are cutting of the speeds in half .thats mean I have the speed of 20Mbps.when any 1 device working at the same time I tested speed.the speed limite showed me at 9.69 or 10 Mbps.specielly I had the issue with archer c9.it was always disconnecting the linternet line.but archer c5 is better than other 2 routers.but this router DIR 822 is Much much excellent performance.i am so happy with this router.i recommend for everyone.verry good range of wifi.every where in my home. first floor to basement and around the back yard up to the next street around more than 50 meters.also I tested DIR859.this router is also awesome.I think d- link routers are better than any others routers.
Great product and great prices works outstanding. I have 4 of my devices hooked still perfect range.Would highly recommend
This router is working well so far
and Excellent performance for a very good price
Excellent performance for a very good price. You don't get that always. 100% Recommended.
Didn't expect such good range and speed from the budget router.
Highly recommended for any dual band basic setup.
Our wireless improved very good. Recommend this devise to who does not have a good wifi connection on his/her home :) 100% recommend it!
The router does not provide the promised performance and instead cuts the speeds you pay for in half. Even through a WIRED connection... I would not recommend if you need good performance but if all you need is an extender, this works.
Bought this on Boxing day, router that came with Telus was horrible. Installed this router and noticed a massive difference, have internet all over the house, love it 5*
easy upgrade and noticed the extra range right away. good results overall so far
This router is working well so far. Nothing fancy, but the wifi seems fast. All my devices connect without issue.
