Product Highlights
  • 802.11n Draft 2.0
  • 802.11g
  • Gigabit Ethernet
  • QoS Support for VoIP and Online Gaming

The Xtreme N Gigabit Router from D-Link combines the functions of a Cable/DSL router and a wireless access point into one compact device. The router allows you to share your Internet connection between several computers that can connect via the 802.11n wireless protocol, or via any of four wired RJ-45 Gigabit Ethernet ports. The router is also fully backwards compatible with legacy 802.11b/g devices.

The router also features a firewall to protect you from malicious software that can attack your computer from the Internet, as well as wireless security to insure that your data remains private. These features make the wireless router a great way to add wireless access to your home network.

Wired and Wireless Connections
In addition to providing wireless capabilities, the router has four Gigabit 10/100/1000 Mbps RJ-45 Ethernet ports to allow you to connect computers and devices that do not have a wireless card installed. This gives you the ability to simply plug in your desktop computer to the router while accessing your network wirelessly via your laptop.
802.11n Speed
The draft 802.11n protocol allows for data rates much faster than those of standard 802.11g networks. The router is fully backwards compatible with the older 54Mbps 802.11g and 11Mbps 802.11b protocols; up to four devices can be connected via wired RJ-45 connections at 1000Mbps.
Firewall and Network Security
The router features a powerful firewall to help protect your computer against malicious attacks that often target computers connected to the Internet. Additionally the router features network security to protect your data as it is transmitted wirelessly, ensuring that outsiders can't access your private data.

    After running with a Belkin Pre-N router for the past couple of years, I decided it was time for an upgrade. I choose the DIR 655 based on features and consumer feedback ratings. I've had it nearly a month, and have been very satisfied with the performance.

    The instructions were easy to follow and works well with Win XP Pro x64, Vista Home Premium x64, and Win 7 x64. (I have all 3) and our Wii (and the neighbor's too).

    I utilized the USB port to hook up 500 gig HD, for backups and file storage, and that has worked fairly well. I have lost connection a couple of times, but it has always returned without having to do more than a restart on my computer. While a bummer at times, not enough to say it's been an issue.

    It also has one of those little "link up" buttons on the side. I did not realize this at the time of purchase, but man is it a handy little feature. I have an Epson Workforce 610 wireless printer, and this made connecting to the network a breeze.

    Range and Dual signal output. I live in a fairly rural area in a small development. We are at the very end of the local cable company's service run. I went ahead and enabled the "guest" signal and am running it wide open to serve as a hot spot for my neighbors and folks visiting the neighborhood. (yea, I'm a nice guy...) I kid you not, I can pick up the signal over 600 feet from my house, and it's a solid signal. Very sweet.

    If I had to name any thing I don't care for with this unit, it would be the neon blue lights that flash on the front of the face. I have this in a highly visible area, and while I know it's working, they are bright and difficult to see exactly what is being highlighted.

    In conclusion, this was my first D-Link router, and I feel it was a good choice, and would buy it again.

    I recently changed my ISP provider from DSL to cable. I currently have a laptop with a built-in 11g card but am thinking of upgrading to a new one with an 11n card. Thinking I would see a dramatic improvement in speed if I switched from an 11b to an 11n router, I decided to go with with D-Link Xtreme N Gigabit Router.

    The installation instructions were great, and the installation went smoothly. I was up and running in less than an hour. Downlaods are much faster now.

    The only negative experience I have had is that I am now losing connectivity with my router more frequently than I did with my old router and DSL modem. Not sure if it's the router or the modem or some combination. I assume it's the router. It's easy to reconnect, but it's still annoying.

              I bought this wireless router to replace a combo modem/wireless router for my comcast internet and this one has a better range. I was able to place it in the bedroom closet that has the preinstalled wiring panel for the home and the range works through out our home which is about 3000 sqft and I tested it all around the house and signal was great. I just had to place it outside the panel since closing the metal panel deteriorated the range.

                This Router is very very reliable and built well. The customer service is great and very helpful. The USB port allows a printer or drive to be shared oer the network and easy to setup.
                I would consider this product a direct competitor with the apple extreme port minus the extreme price.

                        Color is quite different. I like a nice neutral grey or black, white is fine for a kitchen appliance.

                        Antennas are friction fit, and droop like a daisy on a hot day.

                        Blue lights are a little bright, more appropriate for a police car. My old D link, short lived though it was had just enough light to ascertain that the unit was functioning, but did not light up the top of my desk.

                                I reviewed several routers for my Macs and this one fit the bill. My previous router was D-Link, and never game me problems - just that it was slow because it was outdated. Setup was easy, even though the Wizard is not available for Macs.

                                  I have only tested the router so far, not used it for a long time. I like the features and the price. I confirmed that it doesn't slow down my 100 Mbps internet connection at all.

                                  I was on the market to upgrade my dated and slow dlink B router and came across reviews of this router. Just as reviewers prior to me stated, it was easy to setup, fast and gave me more coverage than my previous dlink. It has a bunch of features I probably will not use but for the cost, it's a steal of a deal. If you don't need a dial band router, this is the one to get.
