Customer Reviews

I will never buy another D Link product.
R. Edwards
The software is really easy to manage, the interface is intuitive to figure out, this is my first router and didn't even had to read the user manual.
Alexander E. Santana Mora
This router just... stops routing after a while (usually every 1-2 days, but sometimes several times a day).

I've had this product for about a month. I did a lot of research, reading up on the technology and the reviews before I bought this router, and it won by default, because I wanted the new, longer-range 802.11n (draft) technology and all the reviews on existing products with "n (draft)" were just terrible, but this product was too new to have any reviews!

OK, not great reasoning on my part, but the other piece of my thinking was that maybe the latest to market had more time to correct the bugs of the other products...

Score! D-Link got it right with this baby.

It did take a while to get it set up, but I've found that's true of most wireless routers. Read the documentation carefully, follow the directions carefully, and then call tech support when it doesn't work!

But the D-Link support was helpful and got me through the problems. Oddly, it didn't seem to work consistently for the first day after setup and then it somehow just settled down, like it decided it liked this place or something. (It may also have been that I was actually too close to the router. It doesn't work well within about 6 feet.) After that first day, I haven't had one time-out, no need to re-boot, and no oddly lowered signal strength like I've experienced on other routers. I took my laptop outside and went for a walk with it and I live in the middle of the block and was able to get acceptable signal on either corner, half a block away! Across the street was a breeze.

Location matters. The manual says to pay attention to physical barriers and place the router so that the signal goes through them on the way to a receiver at close to a 90 degree angle, because a smaller angle means the signal has to travel through a lot more solid material.

It's pretty difficult to make a wireless network router simple to configure and operate for a non- (or anti-) technical person. As long as you go into a purchase of a router with this in mind, you'll probably be okay.

Personally my technical knowledge of network and computer operations is pretty high, so my experience with this product may be different than most. I have to say that I love this router. In the world of routers, this isn't a "top of the line" product (see the D-Link DIR-655 Extreme N Wireless Router for that) but it's just one click down from that. I can't really justify spending the additional $30-$50 for a few more esoteric options.

This router does wireless N and G very well. You will likely have to do some tweaking and pre-planning on your client side if you want to get wireless N to work. My wireless connections are always strong (I probably venture about 30-70 feet away from the base station) even through walls. I even have one wired connection on the router. I've never experienced a drop in the wireless signal or any sort of random reboot of the router.

One of the most important things you'll need to do, however, is to update the router's firmware as soon as you get it. Then create an administrator password to access the router's configuration. Then carefully take the time to set up wireless security of WPA or WPA2 strength. Unfortunately nowadays there are many free "hacking tools" available on the internet that can crack WEP security - it's just too weak regardless of the length of your password.

I've used a Linksys and Netgear Wireless routers and the D-Link DIR-625 has been by far the best to install and connect to. I've connected all of my devices (Xbox 360, HP 2700 printer, and my work laptop) wireless without a hitch. I'm using Time Warner Roadrunner cable service. The Network Magic software was easy to use. I get full connection bars with my xbox 360 and my family room downstairs used to be a dead spot but with the DLink wireless router I get an EXCELLENT connection!

This router works flawlessly with wireless PCs, X-Box, X-Box 360, PS-2, PS-3, Wii, Nintendo DS (all versions), corporate VPN, and (of course) wired Ethernet. It never needs to be cycled or "bounced". (I have not tried the "N" protocol; I only use the b/g modes.) The router is in the basement near steel beams and a brick wall, but the signal is strong all over the house.

I have withheld the 5th star because the admin software is not well organized. I often find myself searching all over for this setting or that. Wouldn't you look under "Setup" for "Time Configuration" (choosing your time zone)? Well, it's under "Tools". Wouldn't the MAC filter go under "Access Control" since its purpose is to control access? It's not. Why is "Dynamic DNS" not under "Advanced" while simply setting transmit power is under "Advanced/Advanced Wireless"?

Also, you set up MAC filtering by selecting devices by their names (XBox, Wii, Laptop) but thereafter, only the MAC addresses are shown. The column that should show the clients' names says "Computer Name" on every line instead of the name computer's name. If you get rid of a device, there is no way to tell which entry to delete from the list. Lists of active sessions, connected devices, etc. are all just addresses, so you can't easily tell who or what's connected.

But, once you finish configuring, you forget about it and enjoy the way it provides stable, reliable service for every kind of device! [I still stand by this review as of 7/23/09.]
