I purchased this for $28.05 (price match). This works well and has a decent range for my small apartment. If you live in a house you definitely want to spend a bit more on a router, but for small dwellings this does the job.

I had my doubts about this unit, but most of the reviews I read stated this was a solid performer for a wired network. So far, this unit had given me not problems and has performed flawlessly. I almost purchased the DIR-655 because it had solid reviews and reliability, however the fact that the DIR-655 is known to have overheating issues prompted me to try the DIR-601 since wireless functionality wasn't a consideration. I have owned several D-link products, and all performed great..unlike the Linksys products I have tried. That is only my experience, and I know there are plenty of people whose story with the two manufacturers is the other way around.
Bought this because my old linksys died. I was looking for a temporary router. The firmware of dlink isn't too good I had a lots of random disconnection. But since I installed DD-wrt everything is perfect fully customizable. I would recommend this router to anyone who can switch and manage DDWrt
I have bought this to use it with an Xbox 360 with wireless adapter , a Wii (Wi-Fi) and a second pc equipped with an old Microsoft 802.11/b usb wireless adapter. everything works fine. This router can get up to 150 mbps and works perfect with my 30 mbps extreme high speed internet so it is more than enough and more would be useless. I decided to get this model over the 300 mbps Dlink 655 due to its cheaper price and that it is still a Dlink which is a good brand for routers. This router is very small and does not take space and comes with a vertical stand. A usb cable is also included (mine did).
