DSR-250: 8-Port Gigabit VPN Router
Secure, high performance networking solutions that address the growing needs of small and medium businesses.
Efficient Green Technology
D-Link Green Ethernet features save power and help cut energy costs. The D-Link Green WLAN Scheduler shuts down your wireless network automatically according to a schedule you define, allowing you to turn off your wireless network during off-peak hours, saving energy and keeping your network secure. The D-Link Green Ethernet feature can detect the length of the cables connected to the router and can adjust power usage accordingly to save energy automatically without sacrificing performance. It can also detect if a link is down on a port and automatically puts that port into a sleep mode, reducing the amount of power used. In addition, compliance with RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) and WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) directives make D-Link Green certified devices an environmentally responsible choice.
Robust VPN Features
A fully featured virtual private network (VPN) provides your mobile workers and branch offices with a secure link to your network. The DSR-250 is capable of simultaneously managing 5 Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) VPN tunnels respectively, as well as10 Generic Routing Encapsulation (GRE) tunnels, empowering your mobile users by providing remote access to a central corporate database. Site-to-site VPN tunnels use IP Security (IPSec) Protocol, Point-to- Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP), or Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol (L2TP) to facilitate branch office connectivity through encrypted virtual links.The DSR-250 support up to 25 IPSec VPN tunnels respectively, and 25 additional PPTP/L2TP tunnels.

Update: Will not work with NordVPN. I worked with D-Link support, and my VPN provider, D-Link agrees they just don't support the current OpenVPN standards. This router requires multiple certificates (CA Certificate - which I had, Server/Client Certificate - even thought it is labelled optional, Server/Client Key - even though it is labelled optional, and DH Key) instead of a single .ovpn file like other routers require. I'm fairly competent on this type of equipment, and spent about a week and over 20 hours to finally have D-Link agree that it just won't work for OpenVPN.
Some have commented that the configuration HTML screens are slow to display. This is true, but so far the actual routing speed seems to be okay.
My home lan uses only dlink products ( 16 ip cameras, 3 wireless AC routers in addition to the dir825, 2 additional dir825 with dd-wrt providing vpn service, and dlink switches.) I run a Linux server with DNS and web servers. I have considerable experience with this technology, especially dlink products.
After installing the latest firmware 2.11_ww (mine was hardware ver A3 - it was not easy finding firmware for the A3 on the dlink web site), I programmed the dsr-250 in a manner just as the dir825 was programmed, making changes for the router interface differences. I use extensive port forwarding for the cameras and the dns & web servers, as well as a couple VPN servers and clients.) It is a little complex, but not extreme.
Once I placed the dsr250 in service with all of the settings matching the dir825 (I did not add the static routing at first), the unit worked correctly except for port forwarding. The "standard services" ftp and dns worked perfectly. However the standard http service did not work reliably. When I booted the dsr250 the http (access from outside the home) would work for a few minutes, then it would quit working till re-booted. It would then do the same thing - work a few minutes and then stop (this problem only occurred when connecting to http from outside the home.)
None of custom services I programmed (primarily for IP cameras, and vpn access) would work. They never worked. I programmed these like I have done on other dlink products and like I did on the ISP gateway. I also compared my settings to the dlink web instructions for port forwarding, as well as other instructions I found on the internet. My settings matched every reference I lookup at. It just did not work. I tried several variations on the settings and nothing worked. Without changing any settings, I hooked the dir825 gateway back up and removed the dsr250, and everything worked immediately, just as it should. Clearly a dsr250 issue.
I then tried setting up 1 lan static route. When I first set it up, it worked immediately. After the first dsr250 re-boot it never worked again. I tried several things including removing and re-entering the static route. It never worked again.
I worked on this for 3 days straight - about 30 hours. I tried hard resets, re-flashing firmware, followed by hard resets, reloading saved config files. Nothing would fix the forwarding or static route.
It would be well to mention that when I accessed the dsr250 web page using ie11 (windows 10) the web page certificate was not valid, so I had to override the exception every time I accessed the dsr250. Not a big deal, but not good.
I think the firmware on this product is not ready for prime time. It is not robust, and I think it is buggy based on my observations, especially the http port forwarding and static routing.
I still need a device that does lan static routing.
After spending weeks of research and trial and error I finally got the VPN to work with IOS, Android and Windows clients, only to find the data throughput abysmally slow. When using the internet on a remote client, I am losing over 50% of my data throughput.
It is my experience that this is a VPN router in name only, and that no office would be satisfied with it's VPN performance. Further, the configuration software is not user friendly and also quite slow and cumbersome.
It is my opinion that you should strongly consider other alternatives if you are attempting to build a VPN network for your home or office.
Top reviews from other countries
- port knocking
- redirecting outgoing traffic (DNAT)
Unfortunately there are also a few things that are not that great:
- TLS is broken
- interface is sluggish
- English translation in the UI is abysmal
While the UI issues are annoying, I find it rather perplexing that a security product comes with a broken TLS 1.0 implementation. Basically connecting to the router is not secure.
On top of that, support ignored every single mail I sent in that regard.
But for this price it is a great product with a lot of features.
I replaced my hub with this, and now all devices are able to secure the required bandwidth. Did take some tech skills to allocate minimum and maximum bandwidths for each port, and recombine a few of the ports into a VLAN to ensure the wired Chromecast could communicate with my wifi mesh network.
Biggest complaint. The power cable is on the opposite side of the Ethernet cable....it just doesn't make sense.
