Eight 10/100 Ethernet Ports

If you're looking for a router to help expand your wired network, this will do the job as well. With eight (8) 10/100 ethernet ports included on the back, you'll be sure to have plenty of room to plug in other network devices and be easily connected.

Easy Set-Up

The D-Link Quick Router Setup Wizard quickly configures your new Wireless-N 8-Port Router to get you up and running in minutes. Our Setup Wizard walks you step-by-step through the installation process to configure your Internet connection, wireless network settings, security, and everything else you need to get your network up and running so you do not have to be a networking expert to get it set up (see a larger image of the set-up software).

Easy To Secure

The DIR-632 supports the latest wireless security features to help prevent unauthorized access, be it from over a wireless network or from the Internet. Support for WPA and WPA2 standards ensure that you will be able to use the best possible encryption, regardless of your client devices. In addition, the Wireless-N 8-Port Router utilizes dual active firewalls (SPI and NAT) to prevent potential attacks from across the Internet.

Benefits of a Wireless-N Router

This Wireless-N 8-Port Router uses powerful 802.11n technology with multiple intelligent antennas to maximize the speed and range of your wireless signal to significantly outperform previous-generation Wireless-G MIMO devices. The antennas on the Wireless-N 8-Port Router make use of your home's environment by bouncing multiple wireless signals off walls and ceilings to work around obstructions and help eliminate dead spots.

IPV6 Equipped

Get Ready for the Future: IPV6 Equipped

With the growing number of Internet-enabled applications requiring IP addresses, the supply of IP addresses under the current Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) system has already been exhausted. The IPv6 protocol solves this network addressing exhaustion by creating more IP addresses, but migration from IPv4 to IPv6 is not necessarily automatic. No worries--this D-Link product is IPv6 Certified and ready for the future.

The easy setup D-Link had, worked great!
Mike
It does function for the most part, but every day the connection drops at some random time, and the router must be unplugged and reset.

We have had no problems with wired or wireless connections.

I'll start by saying that I have several Windows 7 and several Mac PCs in the house. I had been using a Westell wireless modem/router provided by Frontier DSL (Formerly Verizon DSL in Washington State). The Westell was starting to have problems with one of my Macs (The IP Address kept dropping or some such thing) so I needed a new router. The Quick Start Guide that comes with this D-Link router tells you all you need to know for what is truly a very simple set up process. I simply installed the CD ROM into one of my Windows machines, followed the prompts and, voila!, my new network was up and running.

One terrific benefit to this router that, as of the date of this review, no one has mentioned, is that you have the option of using it as a stand alone router OR IN ADDITION TO your existing router/modem. This latter option provides the user with the addition of even more Ethernet ports because they can use the eight with the D-Link and all but one of the ones on the old router. Note: One of the ports on the old router will need to be used to connect it to the new D-Link. It's also important to note that this is just a router. It does not have a modem so if your existing setup was like mine, with a router/modem, then, assuming there's nothing wrong with your existing modem, you will likely want to ADD this in the same manner that I did.

Of course, if all you need are additional Ethernet ports your money will be much better spent on something like TRENDnet 8-Port Unmanaged Gigabit GREENnet Standard Switch (8 x 10/100/1000Mbps Auto-Negotiation, Auto-MDIX Gigabit Ethernet Ports) TEG-S80G (Black Metal).

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
What can one say about a piece of computer equipment? Unless one is a geek, not much. We want it cheap, to be reliable and to be easy to use.

What can we say about the D-Link DIR-632 router? It is inexpensive (manufacturers hate the word cheap), it is reliable and mostly easy to use. We'll get to that mostly part in a moment.

For an 8-port router, the price of the D-Link is very reasonable. That is a lot of ports for the price. Throw in N wireless and it is a bargain.

Reliable? Prior to upgrading, my smart phone kept losing sync with my older G wireless router. My smart phone supports the new N wireless settings so in addition to being more reliable it is also faster. Since installing the D-Link DIR-632, my smart phone has not dropped the wireless connection at all.

Easy to use. Yes, we are to the "mostly" moment. Using OS X means that manufacturers don't always think about us. D-Link though has special instructions for Mac and Linux people. Granted, the automated setup available to Windows users on the included CD does not work for us, but the printed quick start guide does a pretty good job of getting the setup started under OS X.

The biggest complication experienced is because we also have Uverse at the house and well, it has wireless G and insists on always being on. For people who have DSL or cable providers, the D-Link will be much easier to setup.

D-Link provides a full set of options when setting up the router. From the router setup page one can do automated or manual configuraiton. The manual configuration pages are pretty easy to figure out.

All in all, I am very happy with the D-Link DIR-632 and would recommend it to friends.

i do not usually write bad reviews on things but this item deserves it. This thing didn't work correctly from the start. the Disk that comes with it to help set it up Didn't work. i had to do it manually. which wasn't a problem for Me being an IT guy. so i got it working. about 30 mins later i noticed My aim kept getting booted offline every time i tried to send something. ok fine i switched to pidgin and it stopped. i assumed it was aim that was the problem. i was wrong. a day later about every 10 mins the internet would Drop out in the middle of loading a webpage. This started to become More and More frequent. i called Tech support they said send it back. i have been searching the net about this router. every review list i find from amazon, neweeg, walmart tigerdirect, office max, and a few others. all had the same complaints about 75% of the people that gave reviews were complaining about the same issues i am. This router is cheaply made and a total waste of Money. i wanted to Like it but in the end switching back to My 6 year old Linksys router proved to be the better choice in this situation. this router is junk DO NOT BUY!!!.

Updated March 29th 2012 - I have been working with D-Link development team and review an updated firmware that is supposed to eliminate a lot of the problems we see today, and mentioned below. I will update this review after testing.

I have quite a few end-user devices in my house (nearing 25 at last count) and some of them require Ethernet connectivity. So between this DIR-632 8-port router and two other 4-port D-Link routers (which acts as an Access Point or modified-switch) I have a medium-sized LAN in my networked house. Thus it does not help when your router decides to shut-down wireless transmission (every day or every other day) and you have to physically go down and reboot the sucker unless you are lucky and one Ethernet port is working so you can reboot using the D-Link web-interface.

As a network engineer and a long-time D-Link user, I spent 2 months reviewing how to eliminate the problem and then realized there is no work-around because of how the Firmware (1.01NA) is on the DIR-632. I have gotten 3 replacements (2 refurbished, one new) and Tech support (which is typically very good on how fast they respond) provided me development firmware (from their Taiwanese team) to see if the problem would go away and it did not. So prior to returning one of the RMA devices (DIR-632) I utilized an Open-source router firmware called DD-WRT (for this specific router) and the problems (rebooting, dropped connections) never happened again.

Summary -

1. DD-WRT interface is not for the faint-of-heart but there is enough information out there (on the support forums) to show you how to use it - This is similar to rooting your Android phone or Nook-Color reader etc.
2. Another problem with the D-Link router and 1.
