Typical D-Link Quality
4 Star Review   By member markbond - Oct 19, 2008   

Strengths: Three-in-one device, advanced configuration ability

Weakness: Advanced configuring requires advanced ability

This device takes the place of an ADSL modem (bridge), wired router, and wireless access point. It is similar in physical design to other comtemporary D-Link devices. Once setup and configured it just works as it should. I recommend that you take the time to read the user manual before setting it up. If desired, the manual is available for download via D-Link's support web site. This device can take the place of devices such as the Westell VersaLink gateway.

Nice piece of hardware, unknowledgeable support
3 Star Review   By member murphyjunk - May 7, 2008   

Strengths: Intuitive web-based configuration, stable wireless connectivity, three devices in one, DDNS compatible

Weakness: Poor telephone support staff, no MAC Address-based access control filtering (despite advertisements in the manual), limited port-forwarding capabilities.

I have to divide this review into two sections: Hardware and "Support" because they are very different, yet interrelate components to the user experience. Hardware: I read many reviews warning of the fickleness of the wireless functionality, but it has so far proven to be rather consistent. Getting it setup with my AT&T/Bellsouth DSL was a bit challenging, but that was AT&T's fault because they didn't know what they were doing and I had to talk them through the steps of resetting my VCI numbers. I don't think this will be a problem for first-time DSL customers, but since I was replacing a modem, they had to reissue my VCI number after I convinced them that was the problem (this was after a few hours trying to do it D-Link's way). Once they reissued the number, I was on immediately, so watch out for that caveat. Also, despite the advertisements that this product can handle MAC Address-based access control, it cannot. Which leads me to the support aspect of this product. Support: I found the support generally unhelpful. My first review was a bit too strongly worded. Just know that if you are going to need a lot of telephone help, this is not the product for you. However, it would be unfair to the hardware, which is generally worthwhile. Otherwise, If MAC Address filtering is important to you, you should keep looking. Also, I think the older firmware has more functionality, so don't download the new firmware on the ftp.dlink.co.uk site because the US ftp site doesn't have anything that can help you.
