I'm on my second unit after the first one had range issues. When I replaced my old G-band router I expected to get better (or at least the same) range with the DIR-655. Unfortunately that was not the case, as my range was effectively cut in half. I made several calls to D-Link and they stepped me through some configuration changes, which did not help. After 3 calls, they told me to return it to Amazon and request a new one. Amazon's exchange policy was quick and painless. With the new router I have the same range as my old G-band model, but the speed is quite a bit better. After setting up the new one, I noticed that it was hardware version A4 as opposed to the first one, which was A2. With all that being said, if you get an A2 model and have issues, you may need to exchange to get a later hardware revision.

As far as the router goes, the setup was ridiculously easy and so far the performance and reliability have been fine. Plenty of features in the firmware to tweak. I haven't messed with the USB port yet, but other reviewers have some complaints on that one. Right now I'll call this a decent router for the price.

Tried 2 of these refurbished 'DIR-655' and they both didn't work properly. They must have some serious quality control issues at their refurbishing area!

I received the router today! I didnt even keep it for one hour! All three antennas were missing. It seems that the router is useless without antennas .. I got poor signal as far as 30 feet. D-link should have better pacacking than this.

I've been using my refurbished DIR-655 for a week now and haven't experience any problems. It came with the router, antennas, power adapter, Cat5 cable, and the install CD, but no printed guides or info. This router was revision A4. Signal strength is pretty good, maybe 75%, from across my entire house (120' max). Basic setup was very fast and simple. I've tried using the USB on the back of the router to attach a portable hard drive to my network, and while it does work, it takes a long time to open files (took about 30 seconds just to see the contents of a folder), and when I turn on and off computers in my house, the connection to the hard drive gets dropped. I'm not intending on using this feature much, but I wanted to see how it worked. Overall, I'm glad I bought this refurbished unit since its been working flawlessly and is inexpensive.

I have had a DIR-655 for several years and chose to add this one as an additional access point. Antennas, power supply, and disk were all included. I did not need the disk. The firmware was already up to date.

I just googled "setting up DIR-655 as access point" and followed the tips.

I am now running an access point using Actiontec 500 Mbps Powerline devices to connect the two DIR-655's.

I purchased this for my husband for Christmas. He opened it up on Christmas morning and tried it out and it didn't even work. There is no power to the router when he plugged it in - and it was all dirty when we got it! We tried several outlets and still couldn't even get it to turn on. Needless to say, we are sending it back for a full refund. I bought a useless piece of plastic junk! There goes a happy Christmas morning!

I bought this router to replace an older D-link product. I have been disappointed ever since. The biggest issue I have with it is that it needs a reboot whenever the slightest change is made to the advanced configuration. This wasn't true of the older D-link, and having designed several routers myself it is not a problem with the specifications for a router. It's apparent that the firmware is so poor that they reboot every time simply to play it safe because their coders were unable to design a running configuration change. Now I'm having problems with the QoS screen refusing to save because of some protocol number when all I'm trying to do is turn QoS off - it was sloppily done and doesn't work right. Buy something else, spend a little more if you need to, but don't buy this.

This is my first D-Link product. I am loving it. The setup was pretty much plug and play. Literally no need to log into the router to start using the internet if internet is already live. Obviously you will to config it but ... I've had many routers before and this was by far the easiest. I love the UI of the router and the way everything is setup. The range on this thing is ridiculous. The in-law's live four houses up the street from our house and they have two bars from my router and it connected at 150mbps through their Acer laptop. I was amazed. I never expected that. I am replacing a WRT310N Linksys router and the range on that thing sucked for me. I accidently uploaded the wrong firmware and well you can guess from there but I'm glad that I did now. This router is awesome. The gigabit works great for my PC and PS3. No complains so far. Great price too. If you need a wireless N router or a gigabit router or both then this in my opinion is the best router out there for the money. The only weird thing is the usb port on the router can only be used by one computer at a time if accessing a movie or something of the sort. And each PC or Mac that wants to use the usb port has to install a tiny app from D-Link. No biggie. I will never use this feature b/c I stream through my Xbox or PS3 but some people may.
