dir-880L won't connect to Wemo switch with 802.11n only mode

It will only connect to Wemo switch when set to 802.11gn mode but that will degrade the 802.11n speed.

  • from Woodbridge, ON

Tried it but...

Purchased a refurbished one, got it set up, that was easy. It started working, then it died It would not transmite wifi. Took it back and got a new one.

DIR 880L Have two in use.

Bought a TP Link previous to this. Unfortunately had to return it. With Dlink, all my devices connected with ease. Only took an hour to setup with all my devices. Everything continues to work well. Love it.

my old rogers router only supports 2.4G and is very slow in a wifi crowded neighborhood. So I got the dlink router and put the rogers one into bridge mode. Overall the network speed is several times faster!!! very easy to configure

Smart connect awesome feature

Great Improvement and increased range. Was watching to movies at the same time using WiFi handled this task easy. Had to disable the firewall to get The HP printer connected. Over all happy.

Very Good Router

I purchased this router last week. Even though it is refurbished, yet it looks absolutely new. Works fine and gives excellent speed and the signal (2.4 GHz) reaches every nook and corner of the house. Works on 5 GHz only if the devices are in the same room as the router. The product was ordered online and was surprised that it reached the store in two days for me to pick it up. Very happy with the purchase.

  • from Beauval, Sask

Great product

Found it easy to install the range is excellant like the new interface to dlink settings feel like i got a good price too shipped quickly and efficently no hassels

  • from Mississauga, ON

Took it back

Had it for one week and had to take it back because I could not configure the 5GHz band. I couldn't even change the default password. I don't know what was the problem but when I logged in as administrator, I couldn't see the 5GHz band and therefore could not make any changes. I could see it in my network, I could log in and access wifi, but couldn't make changes.

  • from Richmond Hill, ON

Great router for the price

Works well. Much better performance than my previous Dlink 1200 AC router. Did not notice any better performance with the USB 3 when transferring for files remotely. Looks amazing.

  • from Ottawa, ON


Very good router well worth the money the wifi is now absolutely seamless in my house and reaches as far as 3 houses beside me in either direction.

  • from Burnaby, BC

good value

This is my 6th wireless D-link router. Previous ones were little more difficult to configure, AC-1900 is easy and works fine. No issues so far.

  • from Montréal, QC


I recently bought this router and I have to say that it is wonderful, we shared an internet with my neighbour and despite the distance of me from the router it works great.

My new D-Link router

I recently bought a Sony 4K TV and it has wireless AC and read that it is the best for streaming 4K content and my Dell 5758 also has a wireless AC card and so I went looking for the best deals online and in-store and came across this refurbished version that was nearly half the price of a new one and has a nice list of specifications and so it arrived on time and followed the included instructions and in ten minutes the router was up and running smoothly and with no problems of any kind and is a lot faster than the Shaw Arris gateway modem, its top wireless speed is 72 Mbps on N(according to my Dell) and now on AC measures 433 Mbps and so now I'm looking for a better wireless card for my laptop and the TV streams including 4K content without any buffering, also buying this router refurbished seems to be a better choice then buying a new one as the refurbished on is tested and the firmware is updated and the price is as in this case is almost cut in half and can build a fast network on a budget. There are other features I would like review, but I am writing this during my lunch hour. which is coming to an end. So good bye.

  • from Toronto, ON

So easy to install

This is the easiest router I've ever installed. Placed it in the basement and both signals are still pretty decent on the third level...that's thru 2 ceilings!

  • from montreal, QC

So far so good

I am not a very advanced user yet am learning...so i went in and explored a few things. It was really easy to install this device, I disconnected my ps4 from wired and it works well on wireless...i believe the connection is fast. I would have thought that the reach would be longer though on the 2.5 ghz but when i get to the end of the corridor in our building the signal was down to one on my phone..thats about maybe 50 to 70 ft away , but not sure about the quality of walls in between (cement or gyps) Anyway am happy with this purchase at this cost..better than buying new. The only thing that i didnt like is that BEST BUY mention that the warranty is one year, however I received a paper within the box saying that the warranty is ONLY 3 MONHTS cause it's refurbished...and so far Best Buy did not get back to me on this. Also the box is just a normal brown box..you wont get the box that is showed in the pic..bit misleading

  • from Winnipeg, MB

Much better than ISP's router

Got this for 89, which is great value for money. I am very much satisfied because of the excellent signal and speed. Our wifi internet phone which constantly losses connection, needing reboots, is now working perfectly. Likewise, our smart TV's don't freeze and lag anymore.

  • from Markham, ON

Great production with great deal

It is very great production. Easy to install and set up. WIFI speed becomes slow than what I expected, if stay a little bit far from router. User interface is very simple to use. Feature is good enough for regular users. For super users, DD-WRT can work on the router as what vendor's homepage mentioned. Performance for DD-WRT on this router is not good as factory firmware. And it is not very easy to roll back to factory firmware.

Dlink 880L refurbished

Excellent value. Very good router. Stable now for over 1 month with no issues. Other than arriving in plain brown box, router looked brand new!

  • from Trois-rivières, QC

Best value router

Pros : -Easy to install -Easy to configure -Strong signal -Price - **NO** drop of signal with the firmware version 1.05 (wich comes allready installed) -Fast USB3 port -Can best flashed with DD-WRT Cons : - QOS engine not stable - Comes in a standard box, not the original one ( is this really a cons ? )

  • from Surrey, BC

Good value

Great product for [price]. New D-Link interface is well designed.

  • from Hamilton, ON

Great product at a decent price

Unit works great. Get reception on both 2.4 and 5 GHZ bandwidths in the ground floor parking lot and the router is up on the 12th floor of my apartment building.

  • from Windsor, ON

Router constantly lost connection. Coverage was horrible. I'd I get 1 bar in my basement. Returned it and bought an asus.
