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.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is my review of the D-Link Whole Home Router 1000, Wireless N Router (DIR-645). I will be comparing it to my D-Link DIR-655, which currently serves as my primary wireless router, and which has been working well for over two years now.

I consider the DIR-655 to be one of the best routers for wired or wireless networking. I was pleasantly surprised that the DIR-645 was on par with many features, better in some yet lacking in others.

The router administration for this DIR-645 is almost identical to the DIR-655. A few minor changes, but overall the same features, functions, and controls. As a stand-alone wireless router, it worked flawlessly. I configured it manually (without the disk installer) via web browser, changed the Router IP address, range, and other settings. It took less than 10 minutes to complete the setup from unboxing to having a functional wireless router. Using the disk took a bit longer (a little over 15 minutes), but it got me to nearly the same state as my manual configuration, plus a few minor tweaks on the router setting. The disk setup is user-friendly, and works properly for setting up the router. I tested other features (QoS engine, advanced firewall, routing, WISH, etc.) for a few days only, but they all seemed to work just as well as the DIR-655.

Data transfer when hard-wired (using Cat 5e network cables) was nearly identical between the two units. I won't get into this too much more.

Next, I tested the wireless feature of the DIR-645. I used a separate DIR-655 as the main router (with the wireless off), and connected the DIR-645 and another DIR-655 for comparison, and configured these two as wireless access points. This is a relatively simple setting change, but I only recommend it if you are tech-savvy.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Before getting this we used a DIR-655 and had constant issues with wireless dropping and speed slow downs. It had to be rebooted constantly. How to solve the problem? Get The DIR-645. This little cylinder can handle all our devices, has not needed to be rebooted once and we now get the full extent of our internet speed. A great thing is that it actually has a power button and a refresh button so no more unplugging and re-plugging cables. It is sleek and fits in well. No more twisty antennas and no more choked up WiFi. We have a PS3, XBOX, DirecTV and a wired ethernet bridge connected directly to it. We also have 2 Macs using WiFi plus 3 phones. Never lags, never freezes up and never needs rebooting. Top of the line router and am super happy with it.

I have been a D-linker ever since its inception, or as long as I can remember. My last wireless router is their DIR-655 which has been a loyal wireless router for about 4 years now. Now, we live in an old house, plus everything computer is in a back house / office, so getting a link to the front of the house has never been easy. Also walls are thick and well built, so the wireless signal, of course, was hard to get to the rest of the house. Even after I bought a wireless repeater it wasn't the best. Okay! HERE COMES THE DIR - 645.

The signal still did not transmit to the places that the DIR-655 could not reach, HOWEVER, the direct link between the DIR-645 and the Wireless Repeater, AMAZING. We have whole house coverage and the signal strenght are again, AMAZING!

The router sets itself up with the CD that is included, no manual settings at all. it worked out of the box. AND, now the netflix movie streaming is blazing fast in the front house where the TV is located!

Thanks D-link for always providing the best for your customer and not your bottom line (IE) promote something as excellent when parts and technology is crap.

This is my first review after 6 plus years of buying from amazon. This is a great product!!

This is the best router i have installed. For 6 years i have been unable to get coverage for my entire home. I always had dead areas at one end of the home. This router was easy to install and works everywhere in my home!! The router is not dual band but actually works(and fast) so this more important for me. I don't how d-link developed this technology but great job and continue this in future product lines. I would recommend this product to anyone who is looking for solid wifi coverage in their home. WOW, buy this product, no complaints.

Another positive point... we have 4 baby monitors running(2 video and 2 audio) between this router and where i am now getting full signal wifi. I was never able to do this before.

Great job D-Link

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I wish I had the same experience with this router as other reviewers here have. It started out great. The setup seemed easy, and I was getting a signal, though a weak one, in areas that I had a hard time getting any signal in. Then, about a half-hour later, I was getting no connection at all. I re-booted the router, still nothing. I then re set up the router using the method I had used initially, but no joy. Finally, I called tech support. They had me go through several different setup options, and finally, after about a half an hour on the phone with support, I got it working! However, the connection seems precarious. We have a couple of iPhones in the house, an iPad and a Windows laptop. We were constantly getting disconnected on all these devices, then having a hard time re-connecting. I finally just disconnected the router. It's frustrating not to have connection in some rooms, but it's less frustrating than constantly being disconnected, no matter where you are in the house.

I probably should mention that the computer I'm using to set up the connection is a Mac. This shouldn't matter, but I have no other explanation for the difference with my experience as opposed to other reviewers here. Tech support seemed very unfamiliar with the Mac platform, and it's possible the setup was not correct, though I was assured the setup they directed me to do was correct. Could be nothing, but I thought I'd mention it anyway.
