5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent product !!!
I was a little reluctant on buying this product, having read previous reviews of non full compatibility with 802.11b products. Finally, I decided to take my chances.

Needless to say that within 15 minutes the router was set up and running. I tested it with D-Link DWL-650+ (802.11b) wireless PCMCIA card as well as with DWL-G650 (802.11g)wireless PCMCIA card. In both cases it worked just fine !! And the most important, my IPAQ 5455 (802.11b) was connected with the network seamlessly in both cases. (Maybe the last firmware patch from HP has something to do with this). Unfortunately, I could not test it with 802.11b cards of other manufacturers.

Now, I can place a DVD in my desktop computer and watch it wirelessly on my laptop at full motion, while at the same time I am downloading my email at my IPAQ. Isn' t that amazing?

However, there is a strange thing happening, which the technical support of the company has not been able to help me solve up to this moment: while the windows XP of my laptop recognize the wireless card (DWL-G650), configure it properly and I can access my local network, as well as the Internet without problem, the D-Link utility which accompanies the card cannot see it. (These computers are so unpredictable things after all ;-).

I would highly recommend this product !!

2-0 out of 5 stars Pay a Few More Dollars for a Better Design and Support
Full Disclosure: I have just decided to buy a Linksys unit after hours on hold/talking with D-Link tech support who couldn't solve an apparently simple WEP setup problem. On the other hand, I have owned several wireles router products, and have been setting up Windows networks for 7 years.

The Good:
* Well priced
* Units reasonably good looking
* If all you want to do is set up a simple, non-secure wireless connection, D-Link works just fine.

The Bad:
* Confusing setup screens make secure wireless connections difficult to set up (since security is now required, weight this difficulty heavily).
* Poor manuals and web site resources make configuration and troubleshooting difficult.
* Poor technical support. They do offer phone support, but the techs seem as clueless as most beginner customers.
* Upgrading your unit is made more difficult by D-Link's practise of making multiple, near-identical units with subtle but critical differences between them. So you have to look at pictures on their site to figure out which model you really have.

The Ugly:
* D-Link's level 2 tech support finally said that they can't help when users don't use D-Link products on *BOTH* sides of a wireless connection. So, if you have built-in wireless capabilities in your Dell, IBM, Apple, ....., laptop, might want to buy another router.

Bottom line - buy something else.

1-0 out of 5 stars can't handle browser idle time (poor support)
Installation was easy and everything looked great. Until I tried to access the internet via my browser the next morning ("page cannot be displayed"). All ideas of the helpdesk how to fix it didn't change anything (we exchanged about 20 emails) so that they agreed it was a hardware problem. I returned it and got the next one with the same problem. The answer of the helpdesk this time: don't use ZoneAlarm. And if this is not the problem, then it must be Windows XP. Unfortunately, shutting down ZoneAlarm didn't fix the problem. So the problem must be Windows XP in their opinion. That's an easy excuse because nobody can prove anything and I got stuck with my router and my problem. So I returned it.

Conclusion: if you have a dial-up connection and don't stay connected while being idle, this is a good product. If you have a cable modem and don't shut down your computer all the time, try a different router.

4-0 out of 5 stars Fast w/ good range, but sometimes I lose connection..
bought this wireless router along with the DWL-G650 wireless card adapter and overall it pretty good. it is quite fast, no complaints there, and has great range (i can use it in any room in my house, even downstairs). the only compliant i have is that once in a while, my laptop loses connection after it has been on standby or has been powered off. its easy to fix (i just unplug the router for a few seconds and plug it back in) but its just annoying since the router is in another room and i have to walk over there. i'd say this happens on average, once every couple days. its not so inconvenient that i'm returning the router, but if it worsens at all, then i probably will (i bought the router and card together from costco, which has a good return policy). it's a pretty expensive router, so while i haven't had many problems at all, you may be able to find a better deal for your money elsewhere.

5-0 out of 5 stars As a newbie to networking, I am satisfied.
I feel like I made a good purchase decision because this router was so easy to learn with. I bought it about 6 months ago. I had 2 computers that had network cards in them, but only had one online because my DSL modem only had one port for a computer. Well this little D-Link box makes that one port into 4 ports, plus more. It also adds a firewall for security, which everyone online should have, makes the web based settings available for every computer in your home, and you can even filter out the bad sites you don't want your childrens computer to see on the internet. Bascially it has a standard parental control feature where you can weed out a lot of XXX sites bvy using certain keywords and filters. For the price, you can't beat it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Keeps Hackers Out
Installed the D-Link DI-604 with 2 computers, one running Windows 98 and the other one running Windows XP Pro. The installation took about 20 minutes. The firewall works well. I tested the firewall by using Shields Up Test ...I recieved the newer DI-604 case than is shown in amazon.com picture. I did update the firmware by downloading the binary file from D-Link's website. The web based interface for the configuration is nice and does it's job well. And I do like the ability to turn off or control the times of use for a network connection hooked up to the DI-604. One thing I do wish it did have was a log showing all traffic or website pages that were surfed to. The unit is a bit on the light weight size and it is physically kind of small. The DI-604's WAN network connection to my Cable modem is only a 10MBit connection, but it's more than enough considering the maximum the Cable modem can deliver is 1.5Mbit. The other 4 LAN connections are 10/100MB connections and work fine at 100MB. Overall, quite a nice package with good performance for the price.

1-0 out of 5 stars Overheats, then fails
I have had two DLink routers and both have died from overheating. I use my router every day, about 3-5 hours altogether, only doing normal web surfing and minimal to moderate downloading. The first router completely failed, had lasted about 2 years so I thought it had a good run. Bought another Dlink, because hey they *are* cheap. It's been a little over a year and the thing is overheating just like the first one. You can feel the heat just rising off the cheap plastic box. It works intermittenly and will probably fail completely soon. Besides spending money twice on something that died so easily, I had ALWAYS had trouble with the advanced features such as opening up ports and even using the DMZ feature. I could never get my router to open up correctly to outside traffic. I'm going to go with a Linksys, hoping it will last me a little longer and will perform more reliably.

1-0 out of 5 stars d-link more like d-junk
I got this little router some time ago, from an online store to set up a home network for the family. I got it because it was cheap and its 4-ports and 100Mbps speed would be adequate for our needs. We have a Ameritech DSL connection, which works just great by itself to my mom's PC. Now, I am an experienced and trained computer technician, and know how to set up networks. However, once I set up our three-computer network a day ago and put this router in it, it has been a real nightmare from the first second. I cannot share files or access other computers on my home network. The firewall is tricky and a nightmare--it blocks access for file sharing.The web-based configuration is nice, but it could be a little bit more streamlined, plus better and more documentation for it would help. Now for the big bummer---about every hour to 2 hours, my computer's connection to the router will freeze up. Yesterday evening it happened 4 TIMES and I had to restart the router each time. (Finally after the last lockup, only having used it for less than 24 hrs I just yanked the power plug out and unplugged all my cables) I had first thought it was my cables, I redid them to make sure they were perfect but the problem still happened even when I tested and certified the cables. I then realized it is not my computer, my modem, or my cables, it is that little box they labeled a "router"! I am very unsatisified with this cheap plastic and silicon box. Also the D-Link sticker on the bottom appears to be counterfeit--it showed only the D-link & FCC logos and model number, but NO serial number,MAC number, or Firmware number! It has the look of having been quickly put together by some dumb schmuck who just wanted to make a fast buck, as I found out later it was a "refurbished" model!! I am also appalled at the lack of print manuals and no paper proof of guarantee or warranty was issued with it. Also I applied for the rebates given AND NEVER got it! Plus the weird thing is that the Acrobat manual showed the newer version (the Rev. E, which is gray and blue) of the DI-604 while the one I had was the older all-gray model (Rev. A,B, or C--take your pick I don't know mine because of that blank sticker!)! Also, it overheats really good and i could feel the heat on the plastic cover! There is no heatsink on the processor inside. Now, my DSL modem does not ever feel like that, even in the midst of running both an AIM session, a huge 50MB download, and browsing a webpage. I am going to toss this defective router, and will NEVER EVER again buy computer parts and equipment from online "stores" (this is the second time in my life I have been ripped off by vendors) or from D-Junk, er D-Link! From now on I will go with Linksys, which all my tech friends say is best for home networking.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best non-wireless router ever
I originally bought this sucker because it came with a free ethernet cable. Eventually, I liked it so much that I bought another one at my local electronics store. This product totally exceeded my original expectations. I thought it was just a vanilla router - it was certainly cheaper than a lot of others. However, this baby is VERY configurable.

It's also a must if you're running an internet or ftp server. It allows you to have some computers be accessible to the outside while keeping your other computers safe with its firewall software. This is also great for online gaming as router firewalls can sometimes be a problem.

As a bonus, this baby has the software for connecting XBoxes if you want to have an Xbox lan party or use the XBox Live Software. I haven't used this aspect of it, but it does mention that it's compatible. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Nice little wireless router
I'm not sure if the other reviewers have problems reading instructions or if they just skipped steps. Had no problems at all getting this unit set up and establishing connections between my desktop and Inspiron 5150. Take it out of the box, connect an ethernet cable between the desktop and router and plug it in. Use your favourite browser to connect to 198.168.1.1 and run through the setup wizard. Then once you've got everything set up, read through the manual, go through the various setup options and tweak as desired. I opted to go with the WPA-PSK authentication protocol because its supposed to be more secure, but if you have other devices that don't support it, you'll probably have to stick with WEP.

It can be laid flat on the desk, or propped up on end vertically using the little rubber feet that are supplied. There are 4 ethernet ports that allow you to connect via 10/100 Ethernet and the WAN port to connect to cable, DSL or LAN. The antenna is on a swivel and can be rotated to just about any convenient orientation.

The only thing I don't like about the router is that it doesn't have an internal clock, so every time it is powered off the router's system time goes back to it's default start value. It can be configured to set the time from an NTP server, but only if it's connected to a WAN network (via DSL, cable or LAN). It's only a minor inconvenience though. The other thing is that the router's web interface only seems to work properly if you use IE. Using Netscape/Mozilla/Firefox sort of works for most things, but not everything.

2-0 out of 5 stars Hope you're patient
Either I'm stupid or the reviewers who found this thing easy to set up are just lucky. I fought with this thing for several hours and two calls to customer service. Both useless, by the way. The instructions are beyond horrible. They're inadequate clues at best. The encryption process is cruel. You have to do it in the proper order - I believe the base computer you're using for set up and then the your wireless computer. No mention of the order in the directions. Learned by trial and error. Do it backwards and you lose your connection. No instructions for the event you just want to set up your wireless computer without a base 'setup' computer. Having never done encryption I didn't realize that I supply the encryption code. Finally figured that out. Possibly the others out there are just as bad. Now that I've got it set up, it generally works fine. I also set up a d-link wireless printer adaptor. Equally frustrating and directions better but left out one very important fact.

1-0 out of 5 stars Lousy router doesnt work with IBM Thinkpad
I hate this router already before reading the feedbacks here. If a router wont work with so many devices, it is basically junk. I have used both Microsoft(I know we are against MS) but the router never gave me any problems with any devices, "firmware" also was great. This stupid thing restarts every time I add a MAC address to the filter list. I sneeze and it restarts.
In short, I HATE IT!!!
Go for the little more expensive Netgear or grrr... Microsoft and you will get your money's worth and professionalism.

5-0 out of 5 stars Beats Linksys any day!
I am happily sitting in my back yard typing up this review on my new D-Link wireless router, which took me less than a half hour to set up and get running with all three of my laptops (including using WEP security).

Previously I had a Linksys router, which was a living nightmare! It constantly dropped the signal and had to be reset, it stopped working altogether one day, then after two hours on the phone with Linksys tech support, I was able to get the Ethernet ports working again - but not the wireless. I've commiserated with many others who've had nothing but trouble with their Linksys products.

On top of being easier to set up, the signal from the D-Link router is much stronger throughout my house than the Linksys ever was. I couldn't be happier! :)

1-0 out of 5 stars Total POS
The unit was simple to install and I was on-line on the internet in minutes with NO hassles. HOWEVER... it will NOT connect to HP iPaq devices at ALL. All it will do is show the router as Available, but will NOT, EVER connect. Just ask: If you Google the DI-524 and iPaq 4155, you can see more information. The tech support guy actually said that his best suggestion would be to return the router. I unplugged it, popped my Netgear 802.11b back in and voila, I was back on-line with NO problems.

I'd avoid D-Links products. I have a PCMCIA card arriving tomorrow which I'm returning without even opening the box.

What a bunch of low-budget crap! Go with Netgear or Linksys, you'll never be sorry. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Possible gotcha for Mac users
Amazon sent me the 614+ by mistake originally, but it worked fine with my G3/900 iBook. Then they sent me the 514, but it wouldn't let me get on the web when connected wirelessly. I connect via ethernet and no problem, so DHCP is OK. Finally, remembering something I read about using Linux with this router, I went to the Advanced section on the config utility, then selected "Performance", then set the "Preamble Type" to "Long" instead of the default "Short". Wallah! It worked! Don't know if it was because my neighborhood was crowded with other wireless routers, or if because I set the SSID to not transmit (though this didn't cause a problem with the 614+) but anyway that's something to consider if you're having a problem with this router and an iBook. Otherwise, it seems fine so far.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good basic wireless router
I bought this router because it was lowest priced unit at the time. It works as expected with no problems except ONE: after few minutes inactivity it kills ssh session from an inside computer to an outside linux/unix server. It is a big hassle because I am used to be able to log in to a mail server and stay connected while the computer is on but now I have log in every time I want to read mail. I think most wireless routers have this problem (Netgear 814 has the same problem) and I suspect it is probably related somehow to NAT/firewall feature which can not be turned off. For example, Netgear 314 does not behave this way.

It is a great product for the price since you really do not need 802.11g routers for two reasons:

1) The standrad is new and still being finalized
2) 11 Mbits/s is all you EVER need unless you are streaming HDTV signal over your home wireless network which I am sure you are not

I also called D-Link customer service about my airplus 802.11b card and as somebody else already wrote hold time was short and I got professional help from an AMERICAN rep.

4-0 out of 5 stars Don't try using this for serious online gaming
I bought this router because the Linksys version B would not work with my version of AOL (9.0 optimized). This one worked just fine. One problem though, when playing games that transfer a lot of data, such as Planetside or City of Heroes, I lose connection every now and then. Other online MMORPG's work fine 99% of the time (have only been dropped from them about 3 times). So, if you are thinking of purchasing this, or any wireless router, for heavy gaming make sure you get a G model and not a B.

3-0 out of 5 stars First time was chore, but now works great
(4 stars if you read the instructions) I had some issues installing the router to the modem and getting my wiress connection in the other room to read the wireless signal, but that wasn't the fault of the router, the software or the installation process. It was my fault for jumping ahead of the game. If you are running a cable modem, make sure you have reset your DHCP by un plugging your modem first and repopulate the DHCP IP upon the modem reboot.
From there the process works great for what I am using it for. My main "surfing" computer is hard-wired in to the router and I am at about 2500 kps. The wireless access point is sold and the computer in the other room with much less internet use is connected all the time able to surf, retrieve mail and download files quickly.
I am running a secured WEP connection and followed all the installation suggestions in the manual the website to keep my Access Point secure.
The price is great when you include the rebate .

Just remember the promises of works out the box only apply if your read all the installation instructions.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Buy
I got this router (...) last winter to provide wireless/wired access in my dorm room for my many visitors and studymates. It was fairly simple to set up a MAC address filter and mount the hub to the side of my desk with double-sided tape. Occasionally, I have to leave it unplugged for a few minutes if it stops projecting wirelessly, but otherwise, it provides wireless and/or wired access 24/7. This is a good machine for someone who is interested in simple setup, fair range, and sufficient speed. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Perfect Gaming Router for the Home
    If you play a lot of online games, or download a lot of files all the time, then this is the router you want to get the best performance out of your Internet connection.

    I will save you the time of reading my review since it will mostly reiterate what other reviews have said.

    Basically this router rules, as it does what it says it can do, and you don't have to fiddle around with it much to get it working properly. The wireless signal is great, it works well with it's partners in crime (DGL-3426 - Wireless Adapter) and looks totally bi*chen with the blue LEDs and black casing.
    I just want to add another 5/5 rating because this product deserves it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Incredible Router....Perfect for Gamers
    Sleek design and unbelievable performance! I use this for my online gaming, while the family uses the network for other uses at the same time. Not once have I received any lag in my gaming. D-Link is the only one on the market to integrate the GameFuel technology which is exactly what sets this apart from all the other underachieving gaming devices on the market. The DGL-4300 is a must have in any household.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Its a pretty great router, but support is weak!
    I'm a computer professional so technology is not much of a mystery to me, but I still want something that's solid, and easy to manage.The internal software to his unit is pretty good, and the performance is top notch. For one its easy to store, and save your configurations.This is important because there may be occasion where you have to reset the router, and your settings would be lost.The firmware was easy to update, and will need to be updated as soon as you connect the device. A word of caution here, if you are using a dial-up connection, (unless its always been very stable), I don't recommend upgrading the firmware with it.One thing you cannot do, because it will likely render the router useless, is lose your connection in the middle of a firmware upgrade.

    This is a gamer modem, and the help files and web manual provide good information as to how to set it up.It even has the settings to port replicate many popular game already built in.In addition, it has a special gamer network traffic section to keep your games running on an even keel over your network.I works, but better with some games than others.While I can't speak for any screaming, bleeding edge speed boosters, it seemed fast.I connected my old Windows 98SE machine using a Hawking, USB, wireless receiver, and it just worked! I experienced none of the problems I'd read horror stories about with other wireless routers.

    Connection is a snap.Disconnect your cable modem from the back of your comp, connects its ethernet cable to your new D-Link router, run the included cable from the D-link to your ethernet port on your comp.(If your computer was connected with USB, you might need a $10 ethernet PCI card if you don't have an ethernet connection.) Turn everything back on, and (at least in my case, it just worked).If your running it as a network, and not just a single firewall, I'd recommend the most modern computer for the wired connection.The rest can either go wired or wireless.I got excellent signal strength, and have yet to experience a dropout on my wireless machine.For those who don't know, a wireless router is normally wired to the first machine (wired connections are generally faster and more solid than wireless).The wireless part is generally for other computers and network devices (like printers and such) to be connected to the wireless part of the network.In the past all connections to a router were wired.If you have one computer you can use an access point, instead of a firewall, but with the exception of this one, (which is expensive) most access points cost near the same as a four port wireless router.

    Ok, now the bad news.It is a complicated piece of tech, and to do some things, people might need help.My advice is to read the FAQ's, and go to the web boards.I needed to get it to host a BattleNet game.I had the correct ports replicated as an exception, but it didn't work.I called the tech serve, and a typical moron told me how to ping the system with Windows command line.I spent a half hour trying to tell him I was connected fine, and could even play the game I wanted (Warcraft III Frozen Throne), but could not host a game.He couldn't answer a few simple questions, and finally admitted he didn't know anything about networking, but was reading from a test script.He agreed to transfer me to level 2 technicians.When I spoke to them they couldn't answer my questions either, and gave some lame excuse that if they told me how to host on BNet it would make my network insecure, and they would be liable to a lawsuit.Give me a break, you create a gamer router, and even include the ports listed for that game, then won't tell your customers how to set it up.I just don't think they held up their end of the bargain (D-Link support that is).

    After two days of testing it, I finally figured out, I had to create virtual servers for each port separately, then create a static IP address, and connect it up to the dynamically created one from Comcast. That would allow the virtual servers to be used by the gamers connecting to the host machine, to connect to a defined, unchanging address, which would connect to whatever other address came up dynamically by the service provider, using the DCHP server.It sounds complicated to a non-network guy, and it is.I'd have like to been told how to do that by tech serve, but they were too incompetent so it was just trial and error, plus a lot of reading.

    Bottom line is if you've gone though the router trials before, this will probably be a good experience.If not, prepare to educate yourself on the wonderful world of networking.I do recommend routers to be used as firewalls to all computer users who access the web, gamers or not. Hackers are banging on your computers ports all day long on the web, and with a hardware router, they only see a router, not the computers hidden behind it.If your not a gamer, this one is pricey, but if you want the latest greatest, as of today, this is pretty much it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Some üBer 1337-ness from D-Link
    I just recently went to a LAN party with some friends and this router was powering the Intenret connection. Those blue LEDs were mad bright! The Internet connection at the LAN was flawless and I knew I had to have one of these bad boys. Plus this thing has all gigabit ports! w00t!

    I ordered it on the Internet and it came the next day. I've had it running in my room for 3 days now and I have to say that it does make a difference with my ping times in CS. And I've had to face this router towards my wall because the LEDs were so bright.

    All my friends are jealous and they want one.
    I got gigabit and you don't! HAHA!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Do you download while gaming?Buy this.
    You pay about a $50 premium over competitors for this highly rated product, which gets you "gamerfuel".That's an odd-sounding marketing buzzword for "packet prioritization". It means the router will prioritize your gaming session packets over ongoing file transfer and other connections, so they don't lag your game session nearly as much.Review sites find it really works and helps lag a great deal, but you'll still experience some (reduced) lag with multiple concurrent downloads.Other manufacturers will eventually be coming out with models that do the same thing, but for now it's just Dlink.

    Those who play games at the same time as downloading, should buy this product without hesitation.

    To get the product working well, connect to router via your web browser at http://192.168.0.1, under basic/dhcp menu give your computers a static ip like 192.168.0.xxx (2-255).Then go to advanced/gaming menu, and easily select the games and downloading applications you run from a pulldown menu.A huge number of games and applications are already predefined for you, like starcraft, edonkey, etc..Well that's it!

    You can help the router out by defining your upload speed under advanced/gamefuel, but the latest 1.2+ firmware does this automatically for you if you click "automatic uplink speed".

    This product is also designed to easily work with XBOX live, but I don't use that personally. If you want to connect an xbox or any device without built-in wireless ability, and don't want to use an ethernet cable that stretches for miles, you can buy Dlink's matching bridge, model 3420. You could also hook up a computer with a 3420 if you want to avoid any possible driver or wireless hardware headaches.Microsoft has a very similar bridge product, but Dlink's has superior wireless encryption protocols (WEP).

    If you are not using XBOX Live, you can turn on "dynamic fragmentation" to speed things up a bit via router menu at Advanced, Gamerfuel.It is off by default, because it'll stop XBOX Live from working.

    Upgrading the firmware was very easy -- grab the file from dlink's website, connect to your router via your web browser, and the under tools/firmware menu, click upgrade.I use this product with my cable modem.It's really quite easy to setup, but Dlink has excellent free phone support if you get confused at any point. ...

Finally, a sub $100.00 8 port switch/router/VPN/firewall with Stateful Packet Inspection and everything you need to get your SOHO safely connected to the Internet. There are other's out there, but nowhere near the features at this price range. Setup in place of an older Linksys HPRO200 router/firewall was about 10 minutes including wiring and cycling the cable modem. Rule sets will take awhile longer, but should be nice once it's done with configuration backup and restore features. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Addendum to my review
I had an intermittment problem where the print server would lock up. I would need to power cycle the router to fix this. Spoke with tech support last night and they had me download the firmware from the D-Link website and reinstall,even though its the same version as what was shipped. Did not work. I then had D-Link exchange my unit. Major hassle to do the exchange. Still have interimitent problem with print server locking up which requires reboot of router. Wireless connection also freezes up from time to time. Overall,not reliable.

4-0 out of 5 stars Very Good,, but Heads Up on Print Server Setup
The wireless connection has good range in my home. I bought this for the print server. It works well with either my HP PSC 1350 all in one, or my Hp Deskjet 970Cse. I will use this with a laptop so that I can print without docking the laptop.

The only thing that tripped me up was configuring the Windows XP printer port setting. After installing the DLink print server software, the IP address for the printer server port setting automatically defaulted to the correct value, but would not actually work until I typed the value into the field.

Other than that, very good. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

AT&T CallVantagesm Service from AT&T is a Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) telephone service that utilizes the latest in Internet technology to deliver features that are beyond the means of traditional phone companies. With VoIP, calls are transmitted over the Internet, allowing you to communicate nationwide for a single monthly fee. You pay additional charges only for international calls, which are billed at competitive prices. (AT&T CallVantage Service treats calls to Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and Canada as domestic calls.) Plus, AT&T's Advanced Quality of Service (QoS) provides high voice quality.

AT&T CallVantage Service offers easy 1-2-3 hardware setup:
1. Plug phone cord and computer cable into adapter.
2. Plug adapter into broadband modem.
3. Log onto Personal Call Manager and open your account.

AT&T CallVantage Service is easy to set up. To establish an account, just follow the instructions on the welcome letter, included in the box. Setting up the hardware is also very simple: just plug the telephone adapter into your existing phone and plug the other end into your cable or DSL modem. All DSL and cable modems with an Ethernet port and at least 90 Kbps upstream and downstream speed are supported, as well as both Windows computers and Macs.

In addition to the standard features you expect from your traditional phone company, like caller ID, call waiting, three-way calling, and call forwarding, AT&T CallVantage Service provides a number of features made possible only by use of Internet Protocol technology. You can have voice mail forwarded to your e-mail inbox as an attachment, and then forward that attachment to relevant third parties. You can take your home area code with you when you travel, so your family or work can reach you without paying long-distance rates. And, with an elaborate variation of call forwarding known as "Locate Me," you can maintain a list of places you'll be visiting; when you're out, AT&T CallVantage Service will ring them in sequence (or all at once) until it finds you.

Accessible either by phone or the Internet, the Phone Feature Manager provides access to a phone directory that can store up to 250 numbers, to call logs (incoming and outgoing for the last 60 days), and to many of your other phone settings. A reverse lookup feature lets you access the name and address information of an incoming caller, while the add-to-Phone Book feature lets you move any number from your call log to your Phone Book with the touch of a single button. A display-and-dial feature lets you easily call any number displayed in either your call log or Phone Book, and you can set up to nine speed dial entries. Taken together, that's a lot for a phone service to do. With all the features that AT&T's CallVantage Service makes possible, you can simplify and organize your communications like never before.

What's in the Box
A telephone adapter for use with AT&T CallVantage Service, a 12-volt, 1-amp DC power adapter, a telephone line cord, an Ethernet cable, manuals, and service and promotional information

4-0 out of 5 stars Not the right device for Multifunction printers
Not much surprise here, it doesn't support any multifunction options, but it does what it's supposed to otherwise do.

I have returned this for a USB Server by Keyspan.

It allows ANY USB device to be shared on a network (as if it were plugged direclty into any PC).

See my Amazon review.

It is the ONLY answer to multifunction sharing.

2-0 out of 5 stars No Firewall Administration Options as showed in DLink Page
I recently purchase this item, I found that there is no Firewall Administration Options in the menu as showed in the DLink Product Page Manual (Everything else is good). I'm talking with the Dlink support and have no solution. DLink support team says "There are no firewall options on this router. To open ports on these routers you will use vserver and applications. Thank you for networking with D-Link. "

2-0 out of 5 stars Firewall support is not like like D-Link Advertises
All the features work well and are a breeze to setup, except one. This router does all the things you would expect it to in a very stable manner, except one. If you check the D-Link Web site for the manual of this exact router model. You will find some rather nice firewall features (My whole reason for getting this router actually). When you set up the router, you will find that there is no firewall button. It absolutely does not exist. The manual has an actual screen shot of the setup screen with a firewall button in plain view and it details how to use the firewall, but the product came with no such option. I am very disappointed, and feel very mislead.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great! but...... server is rs232 only (not USB) : (
ooops, my printer(s) are USB only - now what do i do? otherwise, the device works just dandy (replaced my lame Linkys 4-port without hassle)

5-0 out of 5 stars Works great, good support
My new 707P, in operation over a month, seamlessly replaced separate a SonicWALL SOHO firewall and 8-port 10/100 switch for less than the cost of Sonic's annual support, plus adding network print server capability for my HP LaserJet 5MP. I didn't need all of Sonic's extra-cost features (VPN, virus, content filtering, etc.). Setup, including configuration, options, and automatic time service, were a snap, and served-printer installation on both Windows and MacOS is well explained. D-Link answered a support call on the first ring, and a human technician was very helpful in answering my questions right the first time. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Overall good job
I am happy with this router. I have a HP845C USB printer that was not listed as being supported on the D-link web site, but I had no problem networking my 2 home pc's to access DSL internet and the printer. I was unable to find another product with the USB print server feature with the router. I have had it for a month now and no problems.

4-0 out of 5 stars False advertising
Warning : The product description says "USB print server" not "Maybe a USB print server". The list of the printers that are actually supported is buried in their website. I had no trouble connecting a Windows 2000 PC to a LAN port and using my DSL connection but a Windows XP computer, connected through a 10Mbps hub, even on the same port, could not see any network connection. It looks as if the 10/100 autosensing had a problem.

2-0 out of 5 stars Does the job - poor documentation, poor support
Beware of a few things. First the print server is compatble with very few printers. Go to D-Link's website and make sure your printer is compatible. Also if you are running a firewall on your PC's they may not see each other. The documentation is very sparse. The unit has a firewall but no explanation as to how it functions - your just suppose to trust it! D-link support will blow you off with ANY network questions. Unless it deals directly with the box they will say they can't help you. Other than that it works - next time I'll look at Netgear.

5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing Product
Set it to use as a router and usb print server. In no time at all I had my canon mp730 up on the network. I looked for this same type of setup and there is no other company I could find that supplied a product that is a usb print server and a router in one at this time. I also have a Netgear wireless router mr814v2 I was using previously and I like the Dlink features more. If you need to set up some parental control it gives you that as well. And it gives you more control on that then the Netgear. If there is one thing that could be better it would be a printed manual but all you need is in the pdf on the disk. Great job all the way around D-link! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Fast Easy Set Up, Great Product
Received this product and was up and running in minutes.

I am very pleased that the directions were easy to follow, and that the unit performed as stated. Hooked up an old windows 98 slow computer with the USB adaptor. IT just plugs right in. Loaded the software, and immediately could surf the internet at cable modem speed. AAAAA++ for simplicity and doing what the product description states.

3-0 out of 5 stars Great, but download new firmware first...
Pro: Very fast setting up to get wireless connection and the speed was pretty good at 24-36 Mbps.

Con: But I have no luck connecting it to my broadband cable ISP for over 90 min of fruitless tweaking (I'm an IT guy and consider myself geek), I decided to give it a shot upgrading firmware before calling up the tech support... Bingo, it worked!

Con: One reason it took me over 90 min troubleshooting... almost every configuration change requires a router reboot! It certainly beats Microsoft, Netgear, and Linksys on that.

Con: Btw, you can't forward a range of ports to a specific host, you have to specify port by port.

Con: if you want to secure your network by using MAC address filter to prohibit unauthorized access, you have to put in the MAC of your wireless clients, as well as the MAC of the wired clients. I don't know why D-Link would consider wired eithernet client a risk.

Pro: But once you set it up properly, the router works fine.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Product!!!
I like this product. It comes with a 802.11g, 54Mbps router and a USB 1.0 adapter. So, everyone has high speed internet and a computer can have wireless internet using the D-Link DWL-922.
The performance is excellent. It did not slow down the connection speed. One tip for those who brought the DWL-922. Log on the web-site and find the appropriate installation precedure. DON'T trust the maunal from the box. Their web-site has more detail, step-by-step instruction. It can save you hours of works. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars My Excellent Router
I've had nothing but pleasure from this device. It's been running for three weeks now, without a hitch. I'm using all aspects of it: wired switch, wireless switch, print server, firewall with DMZ.

Configuration was fairly straightforward, but the "Quick Installation Guide" is poorly written. If you follow the Configuration Wizard, though, it walks you through everything you need to get started. Mmm... I take that back. I had to power-cycle my modem before it would work. I don't think that was mentioned in the Quick guide or in the Wizard. Also, firewall port configuration is not covered in the quick start guide or the wizard, but it's well-explained in the manual.

A word about the manual. As I mentioned, the Quick guide is VERY poorly written. The english is bad, the examples are poor, and not all topics are covered. The Configuration Wizard does it's job well though. However, there is an EXCELLENT manual on the CD. IT's 84 pages long and it documents everything you need to configure all aspects of this router, in plain, easy-to-read language, including "for Dummies"-style explanations of the technologies and installation considerations.

I get good signal strength all over my house, and i'm using a Netgear A/B card (model WAB501) in my laptop.

And -- the price is outstanding for everything you're getting in this one box. When it first came out, it was over $200 and that was a stretch. Today (6/22/03), it's $70, after rebates. Can you beat that!?! With a print server to boot!?!? What a deal!

For the sake of this review, I called D-Link Tech Support. I didn't have a problem to report, so I can't speak to some of the other reviewers' concerns that they get a different answer for the same question each time they call. But I called on a Saturday afternoon and got a technician after about 3 minutes on hold. That seems reasonable to me. They advertise 24/7 support, and it doesn't expire.

If you purchase this hardware, I hope you have the same good experience I have had. Good luck.

3-0 out of 5 stars Print Server is not APPLE compatible
I bought this router because of its print server, however, this doesn't work with my Powerbook...it is a real disappointment!

4-0 out of 5 stars Novice installer
Have had the router for a week now and after the setup hassle, it's worked well. My old Lexmark Z32 inkjet printer works fine after turning off bi-directional connection. I'm using a Netgear MA521 notebook adapter after incredible frustration with the D-Link adapter originally purchased.
I thought the Quick Installation Guide could be more clear-then again I've never done this before. Use the D-Link FAQ site-it helped me figure out how to attach to AOL.

5-0 out of 5 stars Works fine with my Canon i850 !!!
The 714p+ print server works fine with my Canon i850 !!!

4-0 out of 5 stars Works great - firmware issues to know about....
Setup: fairly straightforward. There is a "wizard" setup for those who don't like to go through every single option screen. The screen navigation is laid out in a simple, but not intuitive manner - it takes a few moments to realize the buttons on the left change with tab options at the top, but the buttons on the left don't change if there are multiple screens on the right (like "next page" or a button to press). There is no "go back a page" - they expect you to hit the button to the right that is still visible. All my complaining about that aside - it's as easy, if not easier, to navigate and find settings than both netgear and linksys.

Print server: no setup available on the router - it either is or is not plugged in. Software setup for PC works fine. Did not try it with linux yet.

Wireless: finally, something that works with 64/128 bit WEP. Netgear never worked. Linksys was so-so. This works. NOTE: For those who want to limit ACCESS to the WIRELESS by MAC ADDRESS - this unit cannot do it. It can limit by MAC to the INTERNET, but that will also limit who can attach to the unit, both with wireless and with a physical connection. Most other units only use this filter to limit access to the wireless portion. If used, you have to put in all the machines connecting to it - both wireless and physical....

Firewall: Syslog, email logs available. Nice. SPI works. DMZ support. Passthrough ports available. Works great with my nortel VPN client (this is always a good test of PPTP and so on).

FIRMWARE NOTE: I had the hardest time getting this thing to work with windows terminal services. No matter what setting I used, it would lock up then drop the connection until I rebooted the router (software reboot). Some settings would go longer, but I could get it to lock up within 2 minutes. Nothing seemed to fix it - a few people have reported this on the internet, but since most people aren't using the terminal services part of windows on a regular basis - they would never know it.

The fix was to load the 1.22 firmware, not the 1.23 that came with it. This REMOVES the 802.1X authentication tab (some type of shared radius key BS - if you want radius support, get a REAL wireless device) and it removes the 4X mode for the B+ series of wireless adapters (which I do not have anyway).

TO LOAD FIRMWARE: you would need to run either executable (one for MAC or the other for PC) OR use the web browser to upload the file (requires either java or activeX - not sure) because it opens up the "open file" dialog box - meaning - experimental browsers, like those in my beloved linux box - don't work well with this. ALSO - it states in no unclear terms DO NOT UPGRADE USING A WIRELESS LINK. Use a hard wired computer. I went from 1.23 to 1.22 and back and forth and so on testing this remote desktop issue.

FINAL FIX: load 1.23, hit the button to reset the router to the defaults, load 1.22, reboot, hit the button to reset the router to the defaults, then type all your configuration back in.

Why the crazy steps? If you loaded 1.23, typed ANYTHING in the boxes that aren't available in 1.22 - it remembers and will cause problems, even though that option isn't availble in 1.22 (I tried this - several times for fun). 1.23 -> load setup defaults -> load 1.22 -> load setup defaults -> configure.

Live without their crippled version of RADIUS (if you don't know what this is you don't need it) and who cares about the crappy 4X mode for the B+ stuff? Another marketing ploy anyway.

Bottom line - with some experimentation, I figured out the firmware thing. IT has worked BETTER than the linksys ever did (can we say firmware of the week?) and improved over the netgears I have used (you can print and not be disconnected from the internet - thanks a lot netgear).

4 stars because firmware is supposed to fix stuff, and their two listed updates should not have affected the RDP stuff in 2000/XP. But it did. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Great Interface, But poor software and 802.11b compatibility
I got the Dlink as a replacement for my Linksys BEFSR4 (non-wireless) which died during a lightening storm. At first look the User interface is confusing but I soon realized it was better organized for the new user. The routers DHCP didnt pick up my DSL ip so I had to hard code my ip and then flashed the 2.0 firmware. I would recommend everyone to upgrade their firmware to atleast 2.0. I set up WEP 256 right from the start
The Bad:
1. It worked well with my Dlink 614+ card on one of my laptops, but I could not get the configuration utility to work on my main laptop. I finally got it working by hacking the windows registry, but Dlink Support are still clueless.
2. I was in for more problems when I bought a US robotics wireless card, you would think that 802.11b would ensure smooth compatibility. I got the card all setup (had to reduce the wep to 128 bit as WEP 256 is not supported on this card.) The router seemed to detect the card as I could see the MAC address in the wireless status screen, but there was no ip and no link. I havent tried using any other cards but looks like there could be a compatibility issue.
3. When setting my Virtual servers (port forwarding) I only set one custom port forwarding and when I tried to add one more it reported that it had "run out of space". But infact it allows me to add more settings on other pages.
4. D-Link claims this device to be a router, but there is no way to statically route my connections along a particular path. I think thats essential because then I could share my wireless internet connection with anyone and not compromise my LAN. My LinkSys had this feature I dont know if the LinkSys Wireless router has this feature.
5. Their support stinks
6. No SNMP Support. My LinkSys router used to support SNMP (Simple network Management Protocol allows you to save logs on your computer) and SPI (stateful packet inspection rejects any packets whose connections dont originate from your LAN)

The Good: 1. D-Link has the best warranty in the industry 3 years (My Linksys died in 1.5 years with a warranty of 1 year)
2. The Dlink is fast I can get up to 22 MBPS
3. The range is great.
4. Has a feature by which you can save all your configuration changes on to a file great if you want to reset your router or change setting and experiment.
5. Good buy for a novice user.
6. Great price

5-0 out of 5 stars Working Perfectly for 5 Months Now ...
The install was easy, the setup was simple, and performance has been better than great.

I have Earthlink DSL (PPPoE) and this router connected within about 2 minutes of when I set it up, and has only dropped my connection once or twice since then. And even then the drop only lasted about 10 minutes. I think this was caused by my ISP when I was assigned a new IP address and the router had to update the info to reconnect.

I have been using 128-bit WEP since I bought it 5 months ago and everything has been working fine. Collegues of mine have come over every now and then and they can connect to my wireless network just fine with their name brand cards as long as they have the correct WEP key.

I update my router with new firmware every now and then, and almost every time it adds more features or speed. Like fairly recently the speeds have increased due to the 4x firmware D-Link released. I also upgraded the firmware on my DWL-650+ and was able to acheive those higher speeds. Transfering files between my laptop and backup server takes less time now.

Since I've bought this I have never had a reason to reboot/reset it except of course when I upgraded the firmware or changed some vital settings.

I am pleased with this purchase and believe I will be for years to come.

1-0 out of 5 stars Garbage
This product works for a couple months and you "think" its the best thing since sliced bread... HOWEVER as the months go on, it starts having problems... such as rebooting itself at random times disconnecting you from the internet, and not allowing you to view certain web sites. Technical support is very slow and couldn't resolve my problem. After several WEEKS they issued an RMA and sent me a refurbished model with the same problems. So I wouldn't recommend this product, or any D-Link product if you want something that's going to last and work for more than a year.

1-0 out of 5 stars Trouble, trouble, trouble.
I read alot of the reviews here, and half of them say they plug it in, forget about it, and love it. The other half say they have difficulties with it in one form or another. I know, though, for a fact, that trying to fix problems you MAY have is a pain in the ass. D-Link's tech support has solutions to offer you, but as I and half the internet community can attest, they very often don't work.

There is also the fact that OLDER versions of their firmware are more stable than newer versions. One of the things I've seen very rarely on their own webpage, and constantly from other users on the internet, is that -downgrading- your firmware is the solution to many problems.

My reccomendation, if you must buy this router, it so download Trendware's firmware - You can make the DL 614+ accept the foreign firmware(Google it, if you must ask), and Trendware's actually WORKS. The 614+'s firmware is worthless, and even their tech support don't know how to make it work.

Worse yet, their tech support don't seem to know what they don't know.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great 22mbps Wireless AP Router
I am a Network Analyst and have used Linksys and Netgear for clients and friends. But personally I use D-Link. Price wise they are the lowest compared to the aforementioned companies. With the AirPlus and great wireless conditions (less obstructions) you will get greater speeds up to 22mbps. I recommend this product to all people who wish to go to wireless. I got this model on Rev. A. when it had two antennas.
I had updated to the firmware v2.18 (no need to get the newer version since I don't have any issues). I think since I have had this product, the ONLY time I had to restart it was during its initial configuration and once after the firmware update. Honestly one of the BEST wireless routers AP around for the price. C|net's favorite pick too. Also, if you have many obstacles or need to extend or add an Access Point GET the DWL-800AP+!!! Simple!!! FAST!!! and Versatile.
Sticking with D-Link, I just purchased a DP-300U Print Server, WOW what another great D-Link item.
I read the previous post of the Network fella that had a hard time, sorry to hear, but in your case it might not have been your Dlink. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

Designed for home or small-business PCs, the D-Link DI-704 is a broadband gateway with four switched Fast Ethernet ports that delivers complete hardware firewall protection for a PC. Allowing multiple computers to share one IP address to access the Internet via a cable or DSL modem, the DI-704 provides four 10/100 dual-speed Ethernet ports and one 10/100 Mbps Ethernet port for a cable or DSL modem or other broadband access device. The DI-704 can support up to 32 computers with firewall protection using the same ISP through its Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) that provides dynamic allocation of IP addresses.

Installing the system is easy: simply plug the DI-704 into your DSL or cable modem, then plug your computer's Ethernet cable into the DI-704.

The DI-704 acts as a natural firewall to protect your computer from intruders. Once your computer is set up to access the Internet through the DI-704, your network is invisible behind the DI-704. However, because some games and Internet applications work only with direct computer interaction, you can open specific ports to operate without the protection of the firewall to ensure that these applications will run properly.

Advanced options, including NAT firewall protection, DMZ host, setting the IP range and domain name for DHCP, and changing access rights for different computers, can be set up via your Web browser. Compliant with IEEE 802.3 standards, the DI-704 works with any Ethernet device and multiple types of machines and operating systems.

D-Link provides a lifetime warranty on the DSL/cable gateway and four-port switch. ... Read more

Features

  • Complete hardware firewall protection for the PC
  • NAT and IP sharing for up to 32 users
  • Easy Web-based management
  • DHCP server

5-0 out of 5 stars The DI-704 is *easy* to install in 30-minutes
I read ALL these reviews before purchasing my DI-704. It's really very easy to install/configure. The step-by-step instructions are easy to follow for anyone who knows anything about the networking settings of their PC. You essentially copy the static IP address (of your @home or broadband provider) from your PC to the DI-704 (via an easy to access browser-based setup window). You remove all DNS and Gateway settings in your PC's networking setup and copy that info to the DI-704 setup window.

The one trick I discovered to access the DI-704 setup window via my Netscape &/or Internet Explorer browser was to temporarilly turn off any Proxy Server settings. Once I did that, my browser immediately connected to the DI-704 for setup.

At the end of the process, the DI-704 has all the IP address, subnet and gateway settings that @home put into your PC. Each of the PCs you connect to the DI-704 router are simply configured so that it's IP address is dynamically provided (ie: not static).

In less than 30-minutes, both my wife's and my laptop PCs were sharing the same @home cable modem and now both of our PCs are behind a firewall (for added protection from internet hackers).

All in all, a great value and easy to install and enjoy.

Hope this review helps you make the right choice for you.

4-0 out of 5 stars Overall, a very good product
I bought this router becuase i wanted to link my laptop and my desktop to my cable modem. I am now going wireless with my laptop...but anyway this router is amazingly fast(probably depending on your connection)and I love it now, but when i got it, it was a different story.

I knew NOTHING of networks and all the technical stuff, and I bought this because the Linksys routers werent in stock at the store i went to. I took it home and I was really excited, so i set to work straight away. Now I'm a bright kid, i'm 15 and a straight A student. But when it came to the technical part of the installation i was COMPLETELY LOST. after a couple hours of basically screwing up my computer trying to get it to work, i was almost crying in exasperation. In the end i re-did all the instructions and I had to call my service provider to obtain all my information(it doesn't mention this in the instruction manual) so that was the step i had missed.

This product is amazing and has great features once you get it running...also the tech support is great...one of the reviews degrades the tech support..this person was definetly not dialing the number I dialed! the number on the website is very good. I have had no wait for any of the 3 times that I have called.

Overall, a very good product, just needs a bit more in the instruction manual on how to obtain your numbers. Lacks a print server, but that isnt the biggest deal in the world, you just need to leave the computer on that the printer is hooked up to.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great product / Terrible Tech support
I bought this router for [not much after rebate] I got the 704P, with the added print server. The network was a breeze (5 minutes) to set up - I am running a win 98 desktop, and a win XP laptop. The web interface is easy to use, and handles the connection with my DSL provider.

Everything was great until I tried to install the print server, when I encountered D-Link's ... tech support. I had to call twice, once to set up each computer to the print server. My XP laptop would have been no problem at all, except that D-Link doesn't include the XP drivers. It took a full 30 minutes on the phone before they could figure out that the XP drivers are hidden on their website under another product (for a while they told me there were no drivers, and bumbled along trying to install it with no drivers). With the win 98 desktop, the tech guy was so bad that after 40 minutes he was stumped. I eventually figured it out myself.

In summary: if you don't get the print server you will have no problems whatsoever. Even with those problems though, it is a great deal. Just pray, that you don't have to talk to the morons that D-link passes off as "tech support".

5-0 out of 5 stars Great product
I bought this router to replace a Linksys product, and what a difference. Instructions are somewhat suboptimal, but it is very easy to set up. This was my early experience with networking, and have become a D-link fan since. Even though this router has been discontinued, it has served me very well, now approaching a year, and would definitely recommend. Only negative is that once in a great while (it has happened twice), for no apparent reason (I have it set with DHCP enabled and forever renew lease), I am unable to open IE and connect. I am not sure whether it is my router or my cable modem. At any rate, I end up resetting both (turn off then back on), restarting my computer, and Voila! I do not perceive this however as a major problem, certainly less of a nuisance than when Windows freezes (and you get the dreaded blue screen). Some complain about the "ugly, bland, metal" look/shape, but I see it as a sturdy and well built piece of equipment. Sorry, but I never purchased computer/networking "stuff" with the idea to have it double as art for display. Definitely recommend, or the new revision DI-604.

5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Customer Service
Absolutely the best customer service, and at 3 am to boot. I read a lot of the comments posted here and agree with all the positive and NONE of the negative. The doc's for the router could have been a little better. My problem was that I didn't use the "clone MAC address" which a call to customer service revealed and was quickly taken care of. D-Link has absolutely the best CS I have ever called. No questions about where I bought it or was it registered, just good down to earth help. I will be putting D-Link products at the top of my list for new toys wanted!! I only wish I had used their NIC card and not the one from Belkin who has absolutely the worst warranty procedure I have ever encountered! ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Readme.1st
this is a 2 star or less router which will take you a week of screwing around if you havn't read my review. out of the box the DHCP Server within the router will re-lease lan ip's every 9min, 24/7, constantly restarting the lan, which somehow causes all kinds of seemingly unrelated problems throughout your lan if you don't follow these simple steps. when you get the router home, plug it into the wall, cable modem and computer. turn everything on and wait for things to settle down. log onto the web base interface by pointing your web browser to your new router's lan IP of http://192.168.0.1/ (BTW, 192.168.0.1 is not a public IP . . . it's contained within your local network), admin, no password. click the tools tab and firmware button and download the firmware to your desktop. MOST importantly: nOw . . . GeT a BaLlPoInT pEn aNd ReSeT the router _BEFORE_ u go back and update the firmware!! congratulations, you have a smooth running, art state, 5 star router

5-0 out of 5 stars Extremely Good Product
I had a high-end 802.11b router for two years. When I started having problems, I wanted to go with a dual-band router. This was the cheapest one, but it matched my requirements (built-in switch). Not only was the setup simple and quick, but the network delay caused by my earlier router disappeared. I now have a great wireless network with blazing speed. Wonderful product.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good range with 2.4Ghz, and Solid Connection
I am using a DWL-G650 in my laptop and my wife uses an 802.11a based card in her laptop she uses at work mostly. She gets a good connection from within the room of the office, but if she goes very far away from the room she loses her connection. 802.11a is that way for everyone so it isn't just this router. That is the price you pay for faster speeds.
802.11g is a happy medium with adequate speeds and good range. I can go anywhere in the house and if I am furthest I can get from the router I still get a good 2Mbps transfer speeds which means no slow down in gaming online and surfing online.
The router/AP keeps our connection fairly good. There have been times when we were dropped from the wireless connection, but it came back up in about a minute after that. It happened at completely random times so it might have been something do to with interference or some weird wireless thing. It rarely happens and it fixes itself so everything is fine with me.
I'd recommend it to others and advise in changing the default password, SSID, and enable WEP to actually be secure. You'd be suprised that about 75% of people don't secure their wireless connections.

3-0 out of 5 stars There are better products.
This was my first dive into wireless. I was very disappointed and immediately thought wireless still wasn't ready for primetime. My whole idea was that I wanted 802.11a so that I didn't get any interference from my cordless phones or my neighbors who are close. DON'T EVEN BOTHER WITH 802.11a. Real world distance capabilities in my house were much less than 802.11g on this unit. I used it with a Dlink DWL-AG650 card.

Anyway. A friend at work let me borrow a Netgear WGR614 and it is working much better in my house than this Dlink unit. Zero dead spots using the Netgear on 802.11g with the same DWL-AG650 card. I also haven't experienced any problems in relation to cordless phone interference. The Netgear has better security features anyway.

The Netgear WG511 card had the same performance as the DWL-AG650 card.

Bottom line. There are better units out there. ... Read more
