To be fair I've only had this a week, so I can't judge long term performance.

Purchased because my previous router wasn't strong enough to extend the network through out my large home. This was recommended to me by a friend. It has done the job - the network reaches further and (I think) runs faster.

It was also SUPER EASY to set up. I was very impressed with the user-friendliness of the set up process. So non-techy people should have no problems getting up and running on this router.

I am not a IT guy by any means, but I do know a bit about computers. And this thing is super easy to use. Once you get it, hook everything up, modem, this router, and get an ethernet cable to a computer so you can do the initial set up. And by set up, I mean set the 2.4 GHz line and the 5 GHz line up (name it, set password, etc). Once you get everything set up though, RESET EVERYTHING by turning them all off, then back on (modem, router, PC). If you don't, you won't be able to do anything. Once you get it reset, you should be good to go.

Speeds I recorded on various devices using Comcast Performance internet, which can fluctuate between 2 MB/sec and 3.5 MB/s on the computer that has the ethernet cable:

2.4 GHz line on Office computer about 15 feet and two walls away: 1.0 MB/sec (fast by my previous wireless standards, good enough for HD video)

On my mac downstairs, through a concrete/re-rod floor on the 5 GHz line: 3.5 MB/sec - this result blew me away. This speed is as fast as the computer that has the ethernet cable going to it!! Quite amazing.

Samsung Galaxy S3 using the 5 GHz line got the same speed as the Mac, which I also thought was pretty damned amazing.

Interestingly...if you test the speeds right away after logging into the WPA2 2.4 or 5 GHz line, the speeds will be a little sluggish. Give it a few minutes to let the 'beam forming' capability kick in and watch the speeds kick up to the speeds I listed above.

These speeds are good enough for HD video. As I am not a business and don't need lots of band width...this product satisfies my every need for internet at the home.

I strongly recommend this product.

I was running D-Link 802.11n wireless adapter and router - it worked great until I was forced to move into an apartment. With a greater distance, a thicker all, and a crowded signal airspace, I was having a lot of trouble maintaining a wireless connection. Enter the Wireless AC system. The bars on my display didn't go up - I still had 3 out of 5, but my connection speed sure did! Suddenly I was downloading at my normal speeds - around a megabyte a second (not fantastic, but a damn sight better than I've done in the past). It's been reliable and easy to use ever since! Of course, I'm not using any of the really fancy features, but for a home router, it's fantastic.

I recently bought this router to replace my old one which i had for over 4 years. I wanted something good with plenty of coverage since my old router was having a terrible job of doing it in a 1500 sqft home. Set up was quick and simple and network was up and running in a matter of minutes. I tested out the coverage and it is amazing. Covers my entire house with no problem. I went outside to the patio we have in the back (which the router would be in the opposite side of the house here) and still great connectivity and speed. My download speeds improved from ~20mbps to 25-30mbps. I have had it connected since day one and no disconnects from both wired and wireless connections. I currently have two gaming consoles, a desktop computer, 3 tablets, and 4 mobiles devices. Of course not all are connected at the same time but even if the majority is, connection is still great. Another thing i like about the router is how you can separately manage both the 2.4ghz and 5ghz band. Overall the router is great for my needs and i will be doing an updated review in a couple of months!

Decided to upgrade my old D-Link b/g/n router to AC to take advantage of my new laptop's AC wifi. Manual setup is a little annoying since D-Link doesn't offer an upgrade wizard. Take note of your old router's configuration prior to setting up the 860L. Fifteen minutes later setup is done. AC performance is great. Very close to the specs. My only initial problem was an older 2.4 Ghz laptop would be disconnected after about 1/2 hour. This issue is common in the forums - don't locate near wireless phones, microwave ovens, blah, blah, blah. The old router worked flawlessly so it had to be the setup. What worked was mentioned deep in a forum thread - select g/n only and change the 2.4 Ghz channel from 1 (normally used by auto-scan) to 11. Haven't had a dropped connection on the old laptop since. I even have the power levels set to low and get good signal levels 2 rooms away. Thermally it runs much cooler than the old router - an added benefit.

I previously had a D-Link DIR 615 that worked flawlessly but one day it just gave out on me. I had no complaints of my previou router so i decided to stick to D-Link. I could have purchased the same router again but I thought there must have o been many advantages in technology that I could probably enjoy for greater speeds and range.

I came across this porduct and I was sold by the claims of increased range due to its Smartbeam technology and due to its high rate of data transfer. Unfortunately, it did not love up to my expectation or price tag. The range of this product is smaller than my previous D-Link Model and connection tends to drop the further I get away. The data transfer speeds are decent but it tends to drop quickly in speed after a small increase in distance from the router.

Overall I would say that the product doesn't offer any advantages in comparison to lower end routers and not worth the money spent.
