This router was a great upgrade to my old router. The signal is strong throughout the house, and still have excellent signal through many walls in the house. The only problem I have is when too many computers connect to the network, the internet would disconnect.
it's a decent router that does the job, but it always disconnects even if i had the latest firmware and minimal connections, it happens to be happening at random intervals don't know what the problem is
Got this four months ago on sale for $60 for my apartment, which is small, so I can't speak for it's range, but I'm very satisfied with it. Took a matter of minutes to get it up and running. Able to run in different wireless modes (N and older, or just N to speed things up a bit), which is handy whether you have some older wifi devices or not.
Great router, strong signal that hasn't required too much tinkering. Took about 5 minutes to setup out of the box, no CD required. I wanted a Trendnet TEW 692gr, but NCIX was out of stock, so I decided to go with this. Pretty good alternative.
Bought it to replace my 8-year old Linksys wireless B router that finally kicked the bucket. Got it on sale for about $50, otherwise this model is a little too pricy for my needs. so far it has been nice and stable.
Pretty much the same stats as the gamefuel with dual antennas instead. Running 5 computers and more with portable devices on wireless and this thing hasn't skipped a beat. update the firmware on Dlink's website and you're good to go. Firewall is great...Dynamic Fragmentation option rocks when you share a connection with others... no hiccups.
I have not had any issues or loss of connection in the 2 weeks I have had this router. Nice signal strength, even outside in my back yard and the router is downstairs in the entertainment room (I have my Xbox 360 and PS3 hooked to it). Excellent router.
