If you get a C, D or E version you might be able to install DD-WRT.

thanks, hopefully it won't suck too bad...

A solid reliable router for <10 and not much enthusiasm for it. What am I missing here?

For this insane price, I pulled the trigger on 3. Can't beat it for less than $29 shipped!

Fingers crossed that I get lucky - All versions starting with C1 are supported - even the most recent versions (although the build is considered "experimental" for the latest models). The DIR-615 has 4MB flash, and 32MB ram. I'm planning on using these as repeater bridges to my existing N300 network. Right now, the HTPCs are running on wireless G - will be nice to get them all on N300.

:)

At this price, I highly recommend this. Just be forewarned: If you happen to get an unsupported model, you will be stuck with the crappy stock Dlink firmware (which will only operate as an AP - forget about using as client, or repeater). Good luck!

Waiting out for one that supports 5Ghz

Best price I've seen for dual-band was the Belkin Play N600 router (this is actually what I'm using as my main router) for $30 shipped. Deal is no longer around, but hopefully soon. Don't expect to get dual-band for anywhere near the price of this D-Link though.

Also, just a note I wanted to share: In my building, 2.4ghz will go about 3 times as far as 5ghz. In fact, I'm not able to get any 5ghz signal at all in my office ~ about 60 feet from the main router, through just 2 walls. If I do decide to make use of the 5ghz band for my devices, I think I will set it up in WDS mode - this will limit throughput to 150mpbs, but should assure usable signal throughout the building.

Good Luck.

The Mac Alley page says there's a rebate and there's no add to cart button.
The ebay link doesn't work but if you navigate through ebay to find it, I did, well, it gave me a message of transaction blocked. Now it says it's sold but not to me.

Yikes, I didn't realize the range was so limited in 5ghz. I am trying to go through two stories and currently using this router from a while back:

When I try to stream tv shows from my HTPC to my WDLTV it is really choppy.Maybe I should give this router a shot.

Deal went dead in the blink of an eye.

Parato Optimal 11-21-2012 01:50 PM

I bought one of those Verizon routers. It only gave me one or two wireless bars when I was 3 to 5 feet away from it. I've read of others having luck with it. So, maybe I got a lemon.

I've got a version E3. It works fine as an AP. If you have IPv6, go to the IPv6 settings page and set "Router Advertisement Lifetime" to 0, that will stop it from advertising an IPv6 default route.

Radio performance is not super, but it's better and more reliable than the 802.11g router it replaced.

I had bought the one on ebay. After several weeks I realized it hadn't shipped and I hadn't received any communication about the order. I contacted them through ebay, and they then cancelled the purchase saying it was a price mistake. Resulted in me giving them my first ever negative feedback rating :(
