The DIR-655 is single-band (2.4GHz).
The DGL-4500 is dual-band (2.4GHz and 5GHz), however it only uses one band at a time. You choose which band, manually, in the configuration. It doesn't choose the best band in real-time, or anything like that.
The DIR-855 is dual-band (2.4GHz and 5GHz) and uses both bands at the same time.
I am seriously regretting buying this and want to warn folks away from buying this. Much of my research points that many other are experiencing exactly the same issue.
This router worked for me for a few years, but it was a mediocre product I would say. The wireless was supposed to be "extreme" but its coverage was less than a single Wireless-N router I recently bought from Linksys. It was just a cheap replacement router for this one, because the plastic piece on the inside of the power adapter came out and I could no longer hook up my router. Funny enough I can't find a replacement for it. The one that is on Amazon actually doesn't match the specs for the router and would eventually cause problems I'm sure (the reviews seem to agree with me). I went to Radioshack to see if they carried a match and the associate there couldn't help either. They didn't seem to have a matching part anyway. D-Link didn't have anything like this either. Contacting their support would likely be a futile process again.
Either way I wouldn't use it again now. The cheap Linksys router works much better than this one anyway.
I tried various other routers and gateways always getting the same result. All the info I could find talked about port forwarding, port triggering, static ip's and setting up a dmz. None of this worked for me and I spent countless hours trying on every modem/router combination. I finally found this router specifically for gaming so I decided to give it a try. As always with amazon the shipping was blazing fast. As well as the router I decided to try a newer cable modem as well I chose theMotorola SB6121 SURFboard DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem.
Setup was very easy. I just connected the modem, entered my charter account number and the old Mac Id after that the Internet worked. The router came with a cd so I put that in and set up the password and security settings ect... After that I plugged in all my Ethernet cables and connected all my wireless devices. Then I started up my xboxes and put in cod mw3 and wouldn't you know both of the consoles had open nat types. I didn't even have to mess with any of the router settings it is really just plug and play with this router. Now I can play with all my friends no problem.
Hope this helps out anyone who is still looking for a router. If your a gamer this blazing fast machine is for you.
