    D-Link DIR-842 reviews

    DIR-842 Dual-Band Wireless-AC1200 Gigabit Router is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great wireless router Nice router, simple basic set up but capable of doing much more involved applications. I Downloaded the app for a quick and easy startup. The range is very good with strong signal all through the house and outside in the yard. Wireless printing also works great from a wide range of devices. The unit is all plastic and the antennae are not removable but that doesn't make much difference to me. I do like the on/off switch on the back of the unit, but I think the LEDs could be a bit brighter. Overall this unit serves my needs vey well and I got it for a great price and fee shipping.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product, easy install and very good set up info Wanted this router based on great reviews of this product as the best inexpensive router and also supports many protocols plus the newest/fastest 802.11 ac protocol. B&H had as good of a price as any plus I have used them several times in the past with no problems. Fast delivery. The router was extra easy to set up and use plus the instructions warned me to contact my internet provider for bridging. After I set up the router, then contacted my internet provide to allow the new router - bridge it - it worked great. Internet speed tests I performed before and after also showed this newer technology gave me faster wifi speed than my older router , which was my main reason to upgrade. Great product and excellent setup info from D-Link.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Some plus, some minus Easy to setup with wizard, easy to link to pcs and printer, IPads linked up BUT Airprint is still not functioning. The IPads used to link through my old DLink router to the printer perfectly. Have fished the internet and DLink support to no avail. So be warned.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific! This router was plug and play, I didn't need anything fancy or mega powerful -- just something to work at home. The router is perfect for that scenario. Only one hint that has nothing to do with the router -- make sure both Ethernet cords work :)
    Date published: 2017-01-02
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor Quality. Good When it Works Usually found D-Link products be work reliably. This one worked for about 4 weeks and then the 2.4GHz band became intermittent. Giving it 2 stars because when it works it had good speed and coverage. B&H gave me a replacement. Hope it lasts longer this time.
    Date published: 2017-06-06
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not very impressive I bought this to replace a 5 year old Linksys product. All the reviews raved that this was one of the best options in its price range. Turns out it provides no better signal than my 5 yr old Cisco/Linksys wireless router.
    Date published: 2018-04-12
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for S.O.S.H. A modern wireless router for small office and small home.
