"Very Good Router -- I Recommend It"4.5 starson by tonyny77
Pros: Fast, stylish, stable, easy to set up, hasn't crashed, includes free version of Network Magic, and has Admin- and User-level access
Cons: Admin interface a bit complex
Summary: I would not hesitate to recommend this router to a friend. Although I'm a networking novice, I had no trouble with the set up. The wireless range is more than adequate to reach any part of my three-level home. Administration is accomplished by two account types: the Admin account offers full privileges; the User account allows you to view all settings, but disallows any changes. I consider this a plus. There's also an embedded function to check for firmware updates ... EXTREMELY convenient!
There are two very minor cons:
(1) Accessing the router's Admin settings can time-out
(2) The Admin interface is "two dimensional," as I call it, which makes finding the setting you need a little less convenient. Finding the function/setting you need requires selecting the correct major function group (shown as columnar tabs at the top of the interface) and selecting the correct function sub-group from row-like tabs on the left.
I was also disappointed in D-Link by the fact that the version of the product manual available from their web site is older than the version included with my router. I contacted D-Link about that, but there's been no change to their Web site yet.
Thanks for your submission!
