Verified Purchase
I'm a computer professional so technology is not much of a mystery to me, but I still want something that's solid, and easy to manage. The internal software to his unit is pretty good, and the performance is top notch. For one its easy to store, and save your configurations. This is important because there may be occasion where you have to reset the router, and your settings would be lost. The firmware was easy to update, and will need to be updated as soon as you connect the device. A word of caution here, if you are using a dial-up connection, (unless its always been very stable), I don't recommend upgrading the firmware with it. One thing you cannot do, because it will likely render the router useless, is lose your connection in the middle of a firmware upgrade.

This is a gamer modem, and the help files and web manual provide good information as to how to set it up. It even has the settings to port replicate many popular game already built in. In addition, it has a special gamer network traffic section to keep your games running on an even keel over your network. I works, but better with some games than others. While I can't speak for any screaming, bleeding edge speed boosters, it seemed fast. I connected my old Windows 98SE machine using a Hawking, USB, wireless receiver, and it just worked! I experienced none of the problems I'd read horror stories about with other wireless routers.

Connection is a snap. Disconnect your cable modem from the back of your comp, connects its ethernet cable to your new D-Link router, run the included cable from the D-link to your ethernet port on your comp. (If your computer was connected with USB, you might need a $10 ethernet PCI card if you don't have an ethernet connection.

I've always sworn by Linksys and Netgear, but this past summer, I was pulling my hair out with VOIP problems. On both my older Linksys Wireless-G router and a newer Netgear WGR614 router, all calls over VOIP would end spontaneously after 5-10 minutes. It varied and improved somewhat when I moved to the WGR614.

On a whim, I purchased this from CompUSA. I'd had problems with D-Link in the past - two wireless routers in a row died in less than a year, just prior to purchasing my Linksys G-router. Oh man, how things have changed.

1) VOIP is given priority on this router. I haven't dropped a Vonage call in three weeks.

2) Where before my XBox live signal (XBOX360 w/ wireless-G adapter) was weak and prone to disconnection, this router provides a very robust and stable connection.

3) Both of my Apple Powerbooks connect without issue. I've had problems with both the Linksys and Netgear router and WPA-PSK implementation. It would often kick back my password, deny access to the network, or my Apple would wake from sleep and not be able to find the network. Again, in three weeks, both Powerbooks have connected within seconds using WPA-PSK.

4) It sounds stupid but...this router is attractive. No longer do I feel the need to hid the unit under a desk. It just looks...cool. LEDs are bright, though, so if you game in a darkened room with this router, watch out. ;)

5) More intuitive interface than the competition.

I've heard that D-Link provides weak support for their products, but then, so did Netgear and Linksys, both of whom I called about the VOIP issue and both, naturally, blamed it on the VOIP box. Hopefully, with such an outstanding product, I'm sure I'll never have to avail myself upon D-Link's tech support.

Sure, this router is MUCH more expensive than the competition, but it works as advertised, provides a better WiFi signal and, most importantly, its CONSISTANT.

D-Link only made one mistake with this router, and that was bad marketing. They shouldn't market this as a 'Gaming' router, but more as their premium brand router. The real option that makes this router shine is that it just works. I had initially bought a linksys WRT54G seeing that Cisco bought linksys and I thought it would be great but it was bad news. It was slow, had poor signal strength compared the 4300 and wouldn't 'just work' with the PSP and the Gameboy DS. I sent it back to Amazon and bought 4300 instead. I had bought a new router to replace my old DLink 614+, and am nothing shy of overjoyed. This router is no gimmick. It has a gigabit switch built in which if you have gigabit NIC's in your wired network make file transfer lightning fast. And the wireless has an increased range over my previous DLink router, not to mention wireless G and the Dlink 108 boosted signal as well. The real feature that makes this router amazing is the Quality of Service (QoS) features. They make it seem like its more for gaming, but you can tweak priority of packets between gaming, internet traffic, phone (VoIP) traffic, and customize it to the your liking. You can even set it to turn off certain ports or all activity at certain times, i.e. you can keep people off after their bedtime!!! Overall this router is Stellar, but I have to say that if your not a techie, or really going to take the time to learn how to use thing, it will just seem like a plain old router when in fact it is a powerful networking tool, that you can set up once correctly and walk away from. If your very new to home networks, you may just like something simpler. Either way this is an amaizng product and the best home router i have ever used.
