I have used many bargain & a few name brands of wireless equipment over the years. I bought this D-Link because it is almost as inexpensive as the bargain brands, some of which worked, some of which didn't & all of which lacked helpful software and instructions. I'm using 2 of these DIR-601's a Wireless Access Points. No interference with each other (BTW, 2.4 GHz portable phones interfere with all wireless network devices, so we switched to Panasonic DECT 6.0 phones). There are simple instructio ... ns in the PDF manual, which is quite good overall, for hooking them into a router & using them as WAPs. They connect easily to our laptops and iPad -- just choose your network and type in your password (WPA2 encryption is best) the first time -- no software drivers required. We run both G and N laptops. Range seems excellent. Setup software is easy to use. I like this D-Link so much I bought my son one. He uses it as a wireless router at his apartment and it works fine for him too. More >

I gave the D-Link DIR-601 router a 4-star rating based the three most important attributes: Price, ease of setup and performance. It was only $20 at the time I purchased it, which seems less than the cost of the materials to make it(!). Since this was my first experience with a router in my home, I did a fair amount of research and found a lot of not-so-good reviews on many more-to-MUCH-more-expensive routers. The problem areas were invariably poor range and difficult installation. The reviews o ... n the DIR-601 were much better than most, which, combined with price, is why I chose it.I can confirm that the reviews are accurate. Installation was extremely easy; the "wizard" worked perfectly on an XP computer. I do have some minor range issues, but fewer than those reported by some users of much more expensive routers. The router is in my home office in the BASEMENT of the house. The basement walls are 8" poured concrete and the router happens to be next to the north wall. If I... More >

Reviews. from people like me don't really help you consumers much, as I am a tech freak, so I come on here, already knowing what I want to buy, all I will say is that, if you are looking for a wireless router that has great strength over a moderate distance, then the D-Link N150 is for you. It works for just browsing, and gaming alike. I have yet to lose a connection with the massive use I have going on with it.I have 9 computers, 1 Playstation 3, 2 Xbox 360's and 1 Nintendo Wii, running off o ... f this one wireless router, and even with 80 percent of those up at one time, I have never been dropped, and have seen full connectivity each time, with perfect latency in between. No lag, Nor overlay.I live him an apartment, with 3 people. More >

I bought this as a gift for a friend and I tried it out myself but the dlink software is too "dumbed" down for me and it kept disconnecting and reconnecting so I looked around and downloaded DD-WRT which is a custom firmware that I use in another router and I love it!!! With the DD-WRT firmware it is reliable, fast and easy to use once you set it up. Anyways its a great router with an awesome price.

I tried 5-8 times to use the user-friendly setup system by logging into the router and going through the wizard. After the wizard was done I could see the wireless network but could never connect to it. Though I'm no expert, I have successfully set up wireless routers several times before. I finally found a site (wish I could remember what it was) that walked me through installing a different firmware. After getting the new firmware installed and working, the router is great. It has great signal ... strength, and has never disconnected me. More >
