Style Name: AC1750 + Smartbeam Verified Purchase

I bought this router for a very specific reason - it is currently (as of August 2013) the only 802.11AC router available with a USB 3.0 port to connect an external hard drive. I previously purchased and own the Apple Airport Time Capsule which is an 802.11AC router with 2TB or storage built in, but only a USB 2.0 port (stupid, if you ask me...)

I bought this router to replace the Apple router so I could connect an external hard drive with my photo library (iPhoto and Aperture) and access it from multiple computers. This works fine on the Apple router, but it is slow as it is only USB 2.0.

Setting up the D-Link was easy enough. But I could not get it to recognize my WD My Passport USB 3.0 1TB drive. After fiddling with the settings and Googling some troubleshooting without success, I skimmed the Amazon review and found another reviewer who after having the same problem, called D-Link customer support and found out that the router will only work with USB storage devices UP TO 500GB.

As a router it seems fine, but the description is misleading. I would think that most people wanting to utilize the USB 3.0 port for network storage will be purchasing a hard drive larger than 500GB, given that 1TB drives are less than $70 now and falling.

Style Name: AC1000 Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The first thing to grab my attention with this router was it's ease of initial setup and use for the novice user (aka my mom, or others who use the internet, but aren't very computer/network knowledgeable). As I delved into the router interface further, I then noticed the depth of advanced settings and controls that would please just about anyone that has the knowledge/desire to delve that far into a router configuration.

Setup is a quick five-step process, and hits all the basics to provide a WPA2 protected, open broadcast wireless network. I have high amounts of confidence that even my mom could take this out of the box to operational status quickly, without need for help. The router does come with a pre-configured/default network name and WPA2 passkey, and the setup will prompt to change these if desired. Another nice feature for the novice user is the included network information card that comes with the pre-configured network info, plus enough space to write down any customized changes made during setup.

Once setup, I jumped into the router web interface to do further configuration and look at advanced options. The interface is well designed - unlike many of my home router/gateway experiences in the past, the interface is clean and consistent, well organized, and even seems to have a fully developed help system (most others always seem half-baked and missing good information). Everything you'd want for fine control is here and quite detailed, even the option for a guest network on each band. One setting I'd recommend to avoid is the captcha option on the router login page - this only provides for frustration when you want to login due to (at least my own) inability to properly identify look-a-like characters used in the picture.

Style Name: AC1000 Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
THIS REVIEW IS FOR THIS SPECIFIC MODEL: D-Link Wireless AC 1000 Mbps Home Cloud App-Enabled Dual-Band Broadband Router (DIR-820L).

NOTE: In writing this review, I took around at a few of the other reviews to see if there were any major points I may have missed. What I noticed was a little disturbing. Amazon has combined all the reviews for D-Link's 802.11ac routers into one big pool of reviews. There are six separate models here, and you need to MAKE SURE that the review you are reading is ACTUALLY for the model you are looking for info on. Bit slimy on Amazon's part I think to do that kind of thing, because you could be reading a review about a feature for a higher end router, and buy the lower end, and not have that feature there. The review starts here:

I'm what I'd like to consider a good home tech guy. I'm not the biggest of super geeks with it, but I know enough to get things up and running from the ground up. I'm familiar with a lot of the issues surrounding routers and their working and not working. My point here is that I don't consider myself a neophyte, nor am I the biggest tech head in the universe. Somewhere in the middle.

I was looking at new routers, and this one caught my eye. Speaking of "caught my eye", I wanted to say something visually about this router. It's a small thing, and it's shaped like a tube. In fact, from a purely visual standpoint, it reminds me of the probe from the fourth Star Trek movie that came looking for whales. It also looks a lot like the new version of the Mac Pro that hasn't yet gone on sale as of the writing of this (Aug 2013). But that bears not at all on my feelings towards the router, just a few casual remarks based on the purely physical aspect.

Style Name: AC1750
This is a great router. I also have several other model DLink routers.
This will be a new generation of router and Wifi. Client side is still waiting on AC support so keep looking for wireless adapters that will support the new AC wireless speeds. They are coming.

People fail to understand that most any Wifi router has issues, especially in area with numerous Wifi routers near by on 2.4Ghz. These are using up all the channels and thus people are seeing disconnections from there router as it has to stop and rescan for a different channel. In most cases the router can re-establish a connection, however sometimes it can't due to the channels being used up. If your aread is congested with 2.4Ghz wireless APs, then you need to think about switching to 5Ghz.

As for NAT, that depends on the Host ISP modem. People fail to understand that if the ISP modem has a built in router already, this WILL produce NAT issues. It's preferred to bridge these modems if ISPs and the modems support this. If not, it's recommended to use DMZ on the modem and put the external router into the modems DMZ. ALL routers work well. it's how they are set up and what they are set up with that can dictate how they work for users. This IS a good router. People need to research there needs and product details before buying so they buy what they really need.

If people are having problems with there routers, Please visit the mfr support Dlink forums for information help. DLink has a great support forum with experienced users to help out. You'll never know if you don't ask.
