D-Link Systems Gigabit SDIO 802.11n HD Media Router 1000 (DIR-657)
on July 14, 2011
I've decided to pack this thing and send it back to Amazon after having it up for less than a day. I was just tired of the constant rebooting, and it even disconnects at one point while on the phone with Dlink support which terminates the conversation because my VoIP runs through the router. I went back to my old DIR-655 router which works great except for VoIP latency issues That I have been experiencing...
****** UPDATE *******
I have decided to tweak the router a bit before sending it back to Amazon, and after messing around with all the settings, OpenDNS DNS server addresses seems to be the issue. I went back to using the DNS servers assigned by my ISP, and voila, my restarting issue went away at least for now. No more choppy VoIP calls, so I have decided to hold on to this router for now..
**** Update ****
I discovered OpenDNS was not the culprit after reconnecting my external USB drive to the router. The router went back to rebooting itself every 15 minutes once the drive was reconnected. I disconnected the drive, and the router has been up for about 5 days now with no issue. I hope Dlink address the issue in the next firmware release for this router..
