Why put it online if you never keep it in stock

I have checked this model everyday for the last 6 weeks and it is not available anywhere (store or online).

  • from Kitchener, ON

Waste of time

Router would not connect to internet but when it did, it would disconnect. Called support and they could not fix the issue, told me it was defective and return it. Ended up settling for a Netgear router and have had no issues!

Amazing router

I purchased this router based on the reviews. After using it I can tell without doubt that I've made the right choice. It's way better than the old d-link I previously owned. It worth the price.

Very good home router

I've been using this router for about a month now and find it to be a very good, but not perfect, router for my needs. The good: - Excellent range...I can get a strong wireless signal every in my house and quite a distance out into my yard and the speed is good. - Easy to set up with a simple software interface. - A guest network features allows you visitors to connect to the internet without having access to the rest of your home network. - Extremely easy-to-use QoS setup allow you to prioritize your VOIP phone and streaming devices. - The USB port is an easy way to set up a shared network drive for media files, etc. - Can be wall mounted or set on a table. (but the cables come out the top when on the wall) - DD-WRT software is available for this model. The bad: - It wasn't obvious how to create IP reservations for servers and printers (though it is easy to do once found) - Could use more "Help" features such as built-in descriptions of features such as "DNS Relay". - The USB port can only recognize NTFS or FAT formated drives so it can't be used easily with Apple device and not at all with Apple's Time Machine backups. - and here's a big one, for me: there is no built-in DNS server. This means that systems may not be able to find each other by name. (This may not be noticed if all systems are running the same OS, e.g. all Windows or all Apple as NetBIOS and Bonjour will do a similar function, but, for example, if you are trying to use MS Remote Desktop from your Mac, you need to know the remote end's IP.) - Why do these devices only have 4 LAN jacks? I would like to see more built-in jacks to avoid having to use an external network switch.

Parental Controls - Not flexable

D-Link has upgraded their firmware and taken away the parental controls ability to block websites on a schedule. Now it's on or off for everyone on the network. Other than this the unit was okay. Power and speed was good.

  • from Victoria, BC

Broke within 2 months, terrible support

Dlink support says it's defective, but have to call back during different hours to get an RMA through level 2 support as the 24 hour support department does not have the authority. What a waste of time.

Best Ever

This is the best router that I've have ever used in the past two decades. This router stays connected all the time, never ever reboots. It's always fast. Period.

  • from Langley, BC

Great wifi Coverage

This is strong and powerful wifi router that is true dual band. I don’t need my DLINK extender anymore. The menu is easy to use however, the only complaint is after each SAVE, you have to wait until it performs a full reboot. The scheduler is great but it takes a bit to get used to. This is an upgrade from the DLINK DIR-628.

  • from Assiniboia Sk

A good upgrade.

So far so good. Set up went very well. Performance definitely improved over the DIR-655 it replaced. This in terms of stability of connection and distrance/strength of wireless signal

  • from Surrey, BC


Very nice performance at an excilent value

  • from Windsor, ON


Have tried other brands before, will only buy d-link now. Had 2 now and never a problem. range and speed of this are great!

  • from Montréal, QC

Great Performer !

This is a replacement of Linksys 3200. It makes day and night difference with no downtime at all. My old one breaks every on and then.

  • from Toronto, ON

Smooth WiFi Connection

This dlink router is a latest addition in my home network and I am very happy with the uninterrupted Wifi signals of this router. Highly recommended.

  • from Milton

Loving the improvement

I had a old Bell modem with router and the wireless was just too slow and distance was bad. It did take some time to setup. I wasn't aware that you cannot just run the normal setup. The dlink tech guy made me adjust a few setting and I was up and running in minutes. I was thinking about buying a range extender, but I'm happy a bought this router instead. What a difference!

  • from Burlington, ON

Fantastic router

Very easy to install. Total of 7 devices are connected and no issues. The wireless signal is strong enough to cover 2000 Sq feet house. It is a fantastic router!

  • from Vancouver

Good router, but not as reliable for what I need

I upgraded from an older Airport Extreme router that only had wireless N. I wanted AC to work with our new MacBook Pro, and the increased power and beamforming etc. so I could game online confidently in our back room which has several walls between it and the router location. All seemed good at first except that I noticed that the router creates 2 separate networks, one for 2.4Ghz and one for 5Ghz that you name and secure separately. This is odd for me given that I assumed dual-band meant that the router would form a single network and manage the connections appropriately based on what device was trying to connect (5Ghz for the MBpro and 2.4Ghz for other devices). Seems I was wrong and now have 2 networks that I have to manage. I've also found that Airplay mirroring from my MacBook to the Apple TVs isn't as reliable any more. Connection issues, stuttering, etc. Never had this with the AP Extreme. Too bad too sice I discovered these issues only after the return period was up. Would not recommend if you're planning on using this with AirPlay.

Problem with the DHCP server

DHCP doesn't work if you change the IP address of the router or if you want to use address reservation. Beside that, performance was great!

  • from Moose Factory, ON

Good Product

Way too easy to install.

  • from Surry, BC

upgrade was easy and results were impressive

I was looking to replace my 3 year old Linksys router which did not give me coverage in my 3rd floor. After a little research I decided to spend a little more money on a router this time around. I purchase the dlink model as it was on sale and online reviews seemed to be positive. I'm very impressed with the difference it is making with all my wireless gadgets. I can now walk through my entire home and have something streaming on my ipad. The internet also appears to be much faster after the install. Overall very pleased.
