D-Link DIR-601

This is perfect for my home file network. I have several computers without wireless capabilities, so the 4 integrated ethernet ports make it very easy to get them online. The wireless range is OK. Nothing too special, but otherwise it's a great product at least for wired connections.Read full review...

Needs tweaking

The factory default for this router's transmitter power is set to "high". It shouldn't be. On that setting, it will overheat and freeze inside of an hour or two. Set to medium, you have to hit it pretty hard to make it freeze up.

The D-Link firmware has decent functionality, and, on medium power, the router performs reasonably well. 802.11 range is limited, of course, but you'll find that's true of most N-capable routers. For $12 - which is what I paid for a used unit - it's not terrible.

There is no open-source or third-party firmware available, so you're stuck with D-Link's factory firmware - probably permanently. (The folks at DD-WRT have had a donated unit since 2012, and apparently haven't done anything with it, and OpenWRT only kinda, sorta works with it. In terminal mode only. Via a hardware hack.)

Make sure you change the freakin' password. Everyone and his little sister can hack it, otherwise ...

nice router, best with openwrt

i bought this router with the intention of installing ddwrt on it, when i arrived i noticed i had the b1 version which is not compatible with ddwrt but is with openwrt...

i used it a bit with latest factory firmware, it is a bit slugish but does the work, when i installed openwrt on it i noticed the huge difference in performance, also now i can tweak a LOT of options more, it only has 4mb of flash memory so installing packages on it can be very limited, but after that you get at least a 200usd worth router by just installing openwrt.Read full review...

Good Router Nothing Special

As far as a no frills router seems to work Okay. Using it as a wireless access point . I would like to leave a 5 star review. At this time I am not sure if the router is actually causing current issues or if it is other hardware or a configuration issue. will update review at a latter date.Read full review...

no complaints - good value

Couldn't tell you if it's a good speed - my internet is already slow but it seems to keep up just fine. Seems to have decent range - I'm in a one story house so it would be interesting to try out on a multi-level house. For the price it's absolutely great!Read full review...

great router for the price and easy to use

the DIR 601 is easy to set up and use. no issues with wifi signal as is. However, I'm not one to stick with non removable antenna routers. I like upgrading my antenna if I need to. I added a RP-SMA jack to the router so I could connect my High gain removable antenna and have no issues at all. Great little router for the value and upgrading to 802.11N technology.Read full review...

d-link wireless router..

Can't beat the price and easy to configure. Great quality for the price and was shipped promptly and free shipping. It appeared to Me that this had never been used and included all parts.
