ADSL & Wi-Fi easy to configure. I don't use any advanced settings, so possibly lacking in that department, but seems to have the usual features.
I was having issues with my previous router (very old) dropping connection, which seems to be resolved now. I was monitoring with SNMP to check for PPPoE disconnections which does not seem to be possible with this router, but no need to monitor if it works correctly...

A really nice bit of Kit at an excellent price. A feature it supports that is not well advertised, is the ability to run multiple pppoe sessions to different providers. Routing can be via source ip or physical interface (policy routing) or via traditional destination based routing. Worked out the box with the 1.60 Firmware ( up-gradable to 1.65). Also functions as a USB print server (via IPP) and a NAS (I gather its slow - have not tried it out)

exellent - router wifi
Johan, South Africa. 4 June 2012
Great product, IF you can get it to work...
I spent two days trying to set up the modem and even phoned D-Link's technical support desk. Even they could not tell me what the problem was.
Not a simple plug and play device.

USB storage service does not work at all, it only creates an empty network drive that is pretty useless because it does not allow access to existing drives. TechSupport in all seriousness told me that for me to use the network drive created I would have to COPY ALL DATA TO IT FIRST that I wanted to access! Can you believe such incompetence?

Fantastic product. Phone line is also protected against surges by the transformer.
Johan, South Africa. 3 March 2015
Best product for the price. Works like a charm. Easy to install and maintain.
Anni, South Africa. 27 October 2016
Easy enough to install, generally okay router
Irfaan, South Africa. 4 March 2014
Router works brilliantly once setup. Excellent WiFi signal as well. Had some issues with the initial setup though.
Reece, South Africa. 27 February 2014
The product has been working great for the last 2 weeks, really worth the purchase. The wifi range is excellent (on 2.4ghz), it comes with a host of extra's plus the setup was painless.
The only very minor gripes I have are the warranty sticker on the outside of the device and the large power brick that comes with the device (although that power brick does double as a lightning protector for the router).
All in all great all round modem + router, with a little extra such as 3G support (via dongle), USB HDD support and wireless N. Also did I mention it is 300mb/s.

Good router - it does exactly what it says on the tin. The UI is pretty clunky and it lacks some nice features but it is very reliable and does the necessary.
Trevor, South Africa. 18 February 2016
Outstanding product!! Very easy to install takes only 5 minutes if so much. The WiFi range is brilliant and it does exactly what it says. For the price it is worth every cent!!!
Junaid, South Africa. 12 August 2014
Great product. 2nd dlink in 6years.
Won't use another brand!
Ryan, BRYANSTON. 23 January 2012
Excellent Router, was easy to setup and the user interface is 100x better than the "D-Link DSL-2640 Adsl Modem + Wireless Router". It even came with a surge protector for the adsl line which would notmally cost about R350 just for the surge protector.
Dirk, South Africa. 12 August 2014
Works well. Bit challenging to set up (especially the USB storage), but one working there are no hassles.
BG, South Africa. 30 October 2016
This router has been perfect, stronger signal than most other routers I have used and simple to setup.
Jack , South Africa. 14 August 2012
Easy to use. Very simple product. Just takes some common sense. If you can't setup this router then what are you doing using a PC.
Russell, South Africa. 23 March 2012
Do not buy this router.
Do a search for it on the Mybroadband forum first - many people are encountering difficulties with it.
I have spent days struggling to get it to work.
Michael, South Africa. 1 July 2014
I've been using this router since 2012 and it's been an excellent buy! Hasn't given a moments trouble, WiFi has been stable and has a great range throughout our house. ADSL never disconnects. Would definitely recommend - and it's worth spending a little extra if you were thinking of going for that little cheap thing.
NERISA, South Africa. 24 January 2014
Good router. The added 3g option is a good benefit.
Adrian, South Africa. 6 February 2013
Great Product. cheapest one you will find with features it has.
easy to set up, printer and all.
on my second one, as first unfortunately died due to lightening.
so hence now getting surge protectors.
Christo, South Africa. 18 February 2016
The Setup was easy, and the wifi signal is more than sufficient for my entire house. It is very convenient that it can do ADSL and 3G!
Gavin, South Africa. 21 April 2014
This router seems to be the most inconsistent product I've ever encountered. Many will say that it is a good product, easy to configure and has good range.
Manual setup - medium difficulty
Automated setup - Gave me problems
Range - Terrible, sitting right next to the router with poor signal
Stronger Antennas - Doesn't do a damn thing
Advanced Settings - Port forwarding refuses to work
Obviously will never consider our recommend D-Link after this experience. Will probably go back to Belkin or try out the Asus products.
Reece, South Africa. 23 February 2013
works very well! had mine for years now , just signal strength isn't that great , but that is what extenders are there for.
Jannie, South Africa. 18 July 2016
it is cheap and does the job. it does however require a bit of tinkering every now and then, and doesn't support dd-wrt or any other custom softwarr
Jeremy, South Africa. 24 February 2014
Whilst the setup is super easy - this router functions terribly. The wireless constantly drops, causing disconnects on all wireless devices. After some time it sorts itself out, only to do it again 10/15 minutes later. I've tried power resets, factory resets, firmware upgrades/downgrades, changing SSID's and everything else under the sun - still having issues. Cable connected devices don't seem to be effected, which makes me think it's the Wireless Chip/Controller. I've had many routers in my life, however this is the first and last time I buy D-LINK. So incredibly frustrating and disappointing. Guess I'll go back to the old faithful Netgears for my home setups.
Francois D. H., South Africa. 18 February 2015
No problems at all thanks!!!
Cornelus, South Africa. 4 March 2014
I have very little router experience, but I got this up and running with both Ethernet and WiFi in 10 minutes. Signal is good throughout my whole house, which was upto 25m away from the router and still showing 2/3 bars strength. I would recommend this product.
Delia, South Africa. 1 March 2015
Very happy so far. Setup was a bit of a struggle but our internet provider could easily help us. Do not use the setup disk. It does not work. Go through http://10.0.0.2 for setup. We are not bit gamers though, so I cannot give any opinion, as far as that goes.
Lynette, South Africa. 16 May 2016
So far so Good, working very well. Service was excellent, quick and efficient.
KEFILOE, South Africa. 23 December 2016
Faster and Better
Danie, South Africa. 6 December 2016
Does what a router needs to. Quick setup if you know what you are doing. Wifi range can be a tad better I guess but not a deal breaker.
Jannie, South Africa. 3 March 2016
Very disappointing product: I returned mine within a day. Was looking for Qos, but the way it is implemented (DSCP mark) makes it useless on South African ISPs. Look else where.
Johannes Petrus (John), South Africa. 5 December 2014
Good solid router, very nice cover inside house, fair transmission speeds for streaming and data transfer, value for money, with 3G back-up in case of DSL line issues. If it comes down to value for money, I would say this is a good buy
Pierre, South Africa. 13 January 2015
Rubbish. Just google the model and "Obtaining IP" problem for more...
Shaun, South Africa. 19 December 2014
Don't get this router. If you have a Samsung S4 or note 3 up you will be running into problems. Samsung and D-link doesn't get along.
If my note 3 connect to router , then the entire network is slow and no internet.
Charl, South Africa. 3 December 2014
Setup was simple, may need a little knowledge if you don't like reading the manual, but otherwise a good product so far (about 7 days usage)
Sternberg, South Africa. 9 December 2014
I've had many routers never one as awesome as this one.
Omar, South Africa. 5 December 2014
So far so good. Setup was easy. The mass storage option is working is quite good as well.
Kurt, South Africa. 29 December 2014
The router comes with a surge protector and an ADSL filter as well as some cables which is a nice touch. The interface can be a little clunky but its simple enough to use.
Jannie, South Africa. 3 April 2016
A basic router at a good price. The only issue I have is that the USB storage feature is not working properly. Otherwise, good WiFi coverage and good throughput speeds.
Ashley, South Africa. 25 November 2014
I bought this product for the sole reason that I could use the 3G option (not from Takealot but another store). I have a wireless MTN dongle and wanted to share my internet in the house. The router worked ok for a little while, but then it would constantly disconnect and I was forever resetting it, switching it on and off, unplugging and replugging the 3G dongle in. It wouldn't last a day without problems.
I contacted D-Link support, they said upgrade firmware. I did that. It didn't help much. Contacted them again and they had me resetting the device and doing all sorts of things, which still didn't help. Ultimately I now have my dongle connected directly to my laptop and have tossed this router away. Don't buy for 3G!
James, South Africa. 5 December 2014
Very good buy. Easy to configure.Very stable.
Only con is wireless range not that good.
Ramoloi, South Africa. 21 January 2015
A great Router to get a home network started. Decent speed, decent range (+-40m) and it's storage services are easy to setup
Joe, South Africa. 17 March 2016
Its a pretty decent router as long as you don't wand to do anything too advanced with it.
Got good wifi range but doesn't play nice with other brand routers.
Ronel, South Africa. 10 December 2014
Good Product with good signal strength
