D-Link DIR-855
4 Star Review  productwiki.com - Oct 20, 2011

The D-Link DIR-855 is an Xtreme N Duo Media Router that supports dualband (2.4GHz & 5GHz) wireless signals at the same time. This allows users to surf the Web on one band (2.4GHz), while simultaneously streaming HD content on the other band (5GHz). Included with this device is SharePort technology, which allows USB connections directly to a printer or storage device without a PC interface in the middle. Perhaps most recognizable about the D-Link DIR-855 is its intelligent QoS Prioritization Technology. It works by analyzing and separating all data streams, and then ensuring pivotal traffic (e.g. VoIP, video streaming, online gaming) are given priority over less-relevant traffic. Features Xtreme N Duo Media Router Dualband Wireless Signals SharePort Technology Intelligent QoS Prioritization Advanced Encryption Good Neighbor Policy 802.11a/g Compliance Specifications Standards: 10Base-T, 100Base-TX, 1000BaseT , IEEE 802.11n Draft 2.0, IEEE 802 11a/g WAN: 1 x 10/100/1000Mbps LAN: 4 x 10/100/1000Mbps Antennas: 3 ... PROS: (1) easy enough to set up for a complete entry-level user (2) creates a very fast connection, download speeds are good (3) connections tend to stay reliable, dont drop off (4) good range of security features, easy to lock it down (5) good range for either G or N networks ... CONS: (1) doesnt have the best range, a couple floors away signal gets weaker

Wireless Range
3 Star Review   By jcarta on Mwave.com - Apr 14, 2009   

Strengths: easy setup, tons of features, nice reports, etc.

Weakness: The signal strength (range) is very poor.

I was excited to hook up this router and utilize the dual band capabilities. Installation was very easy and predictable but the wireless range is poor. Coverage is terrible and not an improvement over my previous dlink wireless G router. I would simply install a 'booster' antennae but I'm unsure which to get as this router has 3 antennaes 2.4/5.0 ghz. Manufacturer support doesn't have any answers and has not returned my inquiries. I would recomend this router ONLY if your space is open and 'extended' range is not a necessity.
