By D. Moe on October 8, 2007
The DIR-130 was selected due to its support for incoming PPTP VPN tunnels that are compatible with the Microsoft VPN connector included with Windows. The upgrade to firmware version 1.10 has apparently resolved reliability issues reported by another reviewer. The DIR-130 allows me to access my home system securely and consistently. Over several weeks of regular use, it has performed reliably. Configuration is easy using the well-structured menus. The firmware upgrade changed the VPN user account management from the screens shown in the manual and permits many more users to be assigned in groups with individual passwords using different VPN settings (PPTP or L2TP/IPsec).

Performance of unencrypted data over my Bellsouth 3MBps ADSL connection seemed slightly faster than with the prior router, the Netgear WGR614. Due to the VPN encryption, the connection speed is however noticeably slower than non-VPN. Reducing the encryption level to 40 bits improves the speed compared with 128 bits.

There is a firmware bug (v1.10) that only occurs during remote management or managment over a VPN connection. Clicking on the "save" button, executes a script that tries to display the confirmation web page, but the address is invalid, resulting in an error screen, even though the action was successfully performed. Just log in again to resume remote management. This bug in firmware v1.10 has been reported to D-Link, without response. The bug does not occur when accessing the router over the LAN using a non-VPN connection.

Even after reading the poor reviews, I bought two of these because they had the set of features that I needed and I figured that D-Link would have worked the bugs out after a year in service.

I was wrong. Both units had trouble simply storing port forwarding rules! I would fill out the form and hit save, and the new information would be gone. On both units, the very first save seemed to work, but subsequent saves had troubles. On the first unit, the second save worked after several attempts. On the second unit, it never did work.

I decided to update the firmware on one of the units, because several reviewers suggested that was useful. I followed the rules, and the upgrade seemed to complete successfully. After the upgrade, however, my password no longer worked.

So I decided to reset the unit to its default settings, using the reset button on the back. The IP address changed to its default value, as it should have, but the default user name and password do not work. Now I am unable to log into the box, and its default network settings are useless to me..

Unless you intend to use the default settings, or intend to change the settings just once, look elsewhere. The Netgear FVS318 seems to provide similar functionality.

I would wake up to the internet being down 2 - 3 times per week. I couldn't access the router's administration page either.
I power cycle the router and be back in action until the next time. Couldn't find any other reports of this, except when using VPN, which I'm not.

Some lesser issues include a automated clock service (NTP)that is restricted to only using D-Link's
servers, and which doesn't seem to work (clock automatically adjusted to July 31st 1969 when I try
to use it). Also, the web-interface menus are poorly laid out and cumbersome.

I can't be bothered trying to debug D-Link's equipment for them, so back to the store it went! This is disappointing as I been happy with D-Link's other products in the past.

As far as a router/gateway goes, the device performs properly with a good set of features, including logging and diagnostic features uncommon among other low-cost routers. The router's built in VPN server functions well with PPTP/L2TP, although authentication is a little slow if you are used to the speed of authentication on a Windows 2003 server.

The one drawback to this device is, like most low-cost routers, GRE (Protocol 47) does not passthrough (as of Firmware 1.10), preventing PPTP connections to a server on the LAN-side of the router. With the research I performed on the router prior to purchase, I expected it to perform this function. (As a result, I gave the equipment a 4, instead of 5-star rating.)

It won't let you specify a hostname (e.g. from dyndns.com) for VPN endpoints so if the remote site has a dynamic IP address then you have to type it in manually every time it changes. That's a shame.

I really wanted to like this router because I've had good experiences with D-Link products and it has every other feature I wanted. I don't understand the omission because this is a SOHO product and I'll bet most SOHO people don't pay their ISPs extra money every month for a static IP address.

Just like another reviewer said, it dies except mine died in about a year. It worked OK day to day and this ran a small office of about 10 people but about about 2 or 3 times I found it mysteriously dead in the morning as if it suffered a stroke in the middle of the night and only a reset would bring it back. To the unit's credit, it never croaked during business hours but this morning it croaked for the final time and even a 30/30/30 factory restore wouldn't bring it back. I had the unit protected with industrial strength power conditioners so I do not expect that my power blew it out. I also had problems with saving port fowarding rules regardless of what firmware used as other reviewers mentioned. I eventually got them to stick but it was not easy.

The feature set is great for the money but it just isn't built to last but I guess that is what you can expect for the price. Probably a good router for home use but I wouldn't recommend this for business.
