The good: The entry-level D-Link DIR-605L Cloud Router is affordable and easily manageable via the Internet, using a browser or mobile apps. The networking device also offers decent performance and a stable wireless signal.
The bad: Apart from the cloud-based novelty, the DIR-605L is a frills-free wireless router that lacks many common features found in others, such as Gigabit Ethernet, dual-band, the support for the IPv6, or guest networking.
The bottom line: The D-Link DIR-605L Cloud Router makes a great solution for those who just need a simple wireless network to share the Internet access among devices. Its cloud-based management feature also proves to be a helpful and practical bonus.
