"Great Gaming and Moderate daily use router"5.0 starson by FURRYNUTZ
Pros: Great for gaming and daily moderate internet use. I game a lot on XBL. DLink has fixed several issues including random reboots and wireless disconnects in the latest FW release v1.22NA. Working well on my A1 version 4500.
Cons: Gaming and GameFuel marketed features are not enabled out of the box. They are not. They a posted at forums.dlink.com in the dgl-4500 section.
The 5Ghz N mode only isn't as robust and stable as it should be in recent FW releases.
Summary: This is a gaming router so you need to think about what your network needs are before buying any router product. If you don't game or video stream much then I would advise you to look at other router products that will fit your needs. Yes this router works well for daily average to heavy internet usage however if your not going to take advantage of the gaming and streaming features, you'll be wasting your money. Think before you buy. This router is not for every one.Good for Gaming if you game on XBL or PS systems
Go to the forums on dlinks site and review feedback and look for instructions on how to enable gaming and gamefuel settings. There's good people and good stuff there. Always someone there willing to help you out.
Resent released FW v1.22NA is working great on my A1 version of the 4500. I have 2 of these and love them both.
