|geektja0||good deal if you haven't upgraded to an fast router but it's not worth the $160 MSRP....not even close. Compare to 39.95 is more accurate|

|shagz7||People seem to love or hate this, but for $20 it's worth a try if you're running some old 802.11G action|

|Xeroday||It was $20 a few weeks ago. Got one for wired connection and it works great (super cheap for gigabit router). Haven't used for wifi though|

|Nugent1021||$20+tax is a good deal for a wireless router and Dlink is a good product with good support. They answer the phone for tech questions, even on weekends. Connecting it to a DIR-655 for the other side of the house, hoping it works well. Not sure why the bad reviews, but I'll repost if this is a dud. A DIR-857 would be ideal for what I need, but this is 1/8 the price.|

Here are some highlights from an Amazon review. Average reviews for this are 2.4/5 with a plurality of one star reviews. From: http://www.amazon.com/D-Link-Syst...dia+Rout
-Web GUI is the same tired layout. Please change!
-Single-band (2.4 GHz), not dual-band. I have several boxes that utilize the 5 GHz band to stream videos (especially HD movies) and unfortunately this router only has the 2.4 GHz band. Slows down wireless speed with more than one wireless user.
-SharePort Plus is only USB 2.0 (not USB 3.0)
-Wireless signal is weak. When I compared it to other wireless-N routers (DIR-645, DIR-655, and even the Linksys WRT110) this DIR-657 had the weakest signal. I even brought this router upstairs (installed in the main hallway) and tested the signal for upstairs use, and the DIR-655 downstairs still has a stronger signal and faster data speed than the DIR-657.
-Constantly drops connection. This happens with any device (iPad, iPhone, MacBook Pro, PCs) connected to this router. When I switch to any other wireless router, no dropped connection.
-As a router, data transfer speed is really poor. Streaming an HD movie from a NAS onto a hard-wired computer works fine, but if another person watches YouTube from another computer or Netflix from an iPad, then forget it... the HD movie will stutter and exhibit delays. This does not happen when the DIR-645 or the DIR-655 is set up as the router.
-Lately, the router needs constant rebooting. It started out requiring a monthly restart, then every other week, then every week, and now I need to restart the router 2-3 times a week. Completely unacceptable.
-I have no use for an SD card slot on a router, since I upload data on my computer (not my router). This seems more like a gimmick addon, with little or no functional usability
