This router hands down is a solid performer that beckons to be on radar. Configurability, performance, stability, firmware updates, D-Link has made a huge statement in a world of cheap routers that freezes, frustrates, and basically ridicules users that demand more out of their internet connection. Not sure if my Cisco CCIE VoIP certification makes any difference to this review but I can honestly say with what I do both at work and at home, I expect network device to perform to their specification and more. I also play hardcore online MMORPG with 5 accounts running through this router, no lag, no hiccups, performs like a star. A Router's first priority is stability, this thing is so solid, I wonder if there is something wrong with it. Without stability, nothing matters. With stability non-issue, next comes performance. When I prioritize my MMORPG traffic to 1 (highest priority possible), regardless of how many Torrent traffic in the background, or the 10 or so desktop/laptops that running in my home, this BEAST can take it. Functionality? I bought the LAN only version, no wireless, and I hook up my old Linksys Wireless-B router, disable DHCP, and this D-Link automatically detects, AUTOMATICALLY re-routes its network path internally, and can broadcast wireless network as an extension. READ: ease of use. Other functionality includes being able to lock down every MAC address easily, and assign easy to understand NICK NAMES to every individual laptops/desktops MAC Address with great organization and quick lookup for network troubleshooting. I like the ease of setting up Static IP assignments for key Gaming PC/Laptops that can be easily tracked, monitored, and configured for QoS applications.Read more ›

This is a great router for the price. It's easy to configure and the documentation is pretty good. It explains the routing pretty well. What sets this router apart from others is the quality of service settings (QoS) that allow you to prioritize ports for bandwidth usage. You can set your streaming music or game ports to use a high priority and thus never get cut off by maxing out your bandwidth. This alone makes it worth the price.

One thing to note: if you're on a Mac and try to configure this router through safari (It's web page configuration) it won't work because of a bug in safari. Use Firefox and you'll be golden.

(Yes it works on Macs.)

In the 4+ months I've owned this router it's handled everything I've thrown at it, without even a hiccup. DSL, VPNs, QoS, heavily configured SPI firewall & filtering, Bittorrent, XBox Live etc etc. And unlike some other manufacturers I could mention, D-Link continues to release regular firmware updates/improvements for their products.

The DGL-4100 has a very small footprint, generates next to no heat and its LEDs are blue and very bright. I guess the only word of caution I'd give is that it lacks a CLI. Administration is done via a set of built-in HTTP/Flash pages, accessible from any web browser. Personally I much prefer this GUI interface (no cryptic command lines to learn), but more hardcore network/telnet types may object to it.

And BTW, if someone is having the exact same problem with three different brands of routers, their routers obviously aren't the problem.

I bought this router to replace a wireless router to become the main WAP and LAN interfaces on my network.

I now run a wireless access point off the router, as well as a Linksys phone adapter-router, two gigabit switches, two print servers, several computers and a network hard drive.

The router was simple to configure and had many, many options to enable my Vonage internet phone router to access the internet without interfereing with my other computer tasks. I was also able to easily make several configuration adjustments for my network.

I bought this router because I was trying to get (2) X-Box 360's running on my single cable internet connection. This was something I could never do with my previous router. It works flawlessly Setup was as easy as plugging it in Done! I can now run (2) X-Box 360's on the same connection, host a match and be downloading music on my computer at the same time with no problem at all! I WOULD HIGHLY RECCOMEND TO ANY SERIOUS GAMERS!!!!

I got this router as an upgrade from a Microsoft MN-100 router. Basically the MN-100 was just too slow. Networking between our four home computers was too slow. And worst of all, downloading from peer to peer networks invariably caused the MN-100 to crash.

Some people gave this DGL-4100 router negative reviews. I guess it all depends on what perspective you are coming from. For me, this router has proved to be everything I hoped it would be.

The peer to peer downloading has improved tremendously. No more router crashes. The download speeds are now up to some 280 kb/s with uploads about one-tenth of that (my DSL connection isn't that fast, as you can see).

I plugged in my existing Speedstream 5100 which I had gotten five years ago from my DSL provider and it worked fine. I'm not sure what the other reviewer's problem was with his Speedstream 5100 DSL modem. You do need to know what your DSL settings are. But, it's not that hard to set up a standard PPOE DSL connection - you just need to plug in your userid and password.

I was also looking for some way to control the internet usage from the various family computers, and this router has an excellent set of Access Control tools which allow you set up any number of blocking schedules so that Internet access from certain computers on the network can be blocked for certain periods of time. The MN-100 had this feature also, but for some reason, it did not work reliably for one of the computers.

There are also more sophisticated filters such as a web filter, inbound filter, and other filters that that I have not had a chance to explore. You can set the web filter so that it only lets through a certain list of websites that you enter in manually.
