After owning my D Link router for a year, I will probably never buy another. Honestly just getting a cheap router and flashing it with WWDRT yielded far better results then my 200$ D Link ><

I have no qualms with D-Link. I have been running rock solid for over 7 years on a DGL-4100. Every maker has average models as well as faulty products...

My D-link GamerLounge (their first model with 4x gigabit ethernet and 802.11g turbo) burned up 5 of its power supply adapters thus far. One adapter dies every 9-12 months.

The bizarre part is that adapters I'm currently using are more powerful than the one that came with the router itself, which died even faster. D-link then decided to dump the smaller adapter model entirely and enclose the bigger one with new routers, plus sell bigger one only as a replacement part.

I'm not buying another D-link router again if I can help it.

D-Link is one of the worst, if not THE worst company there is when it comes to routers. I still don't know how the hell they stay in business, quite frankly... :shadedshu

Anyone have some advice?

My wife wants to use her laptop downstairs while watching TV, so I am looking at getting a wireless router.

I am looking at some N routers, but I see that some of the new 802.11ac routers are out now, and so I started looking at them.

I found that the AC certification won’t be issued till early next year even though a few are out now.

Are the 802.11ac routers out now “Wi-Fi Certified”?

I don’t think they are since the certification is still not out yet.

From what I understand, these early ‘AC’ routers could have problems with products made after the final certification has been issued next year:

How true is this?
