The Best Performing Router I've Owned,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: D-Link Wireless N+300 Mbps Extreme-N Gigabit Router (DIR-655) (Personal Computers)
Extremely impressed with this router's speed, range, and ease of use. My only complaint (like others) is with the software bundled with this item. It's already out of date, right out of the package, and upon installation, it will prompt you to "update to the new version, free", and that's fine, but what happens is the new version of the software is not compatible with the firmware preinstalled on the router. This fatal combination prevents the router from functioning. You will have to download a firmware update from the Manufacturer to get the unit working again. Not a difficult task, however technical support at D-link doesn't seem to know anything about the software that comes with their product, so I ended up speaking to the technical support team at the software company, who immediately knew what was wrong. Kind of a letdown for this scenario to occur right out of the box. Fortunately, it was easy to do, and the router returned to life, immediately.
