There are just too many negatives to recommend this router, in spite of its aggressive pricing. Unimpressive range, low file sharing throughput, problems with 2.4 GHz 40 MHz mode connections and even its inability to properly communicate its Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) status are all reasons to leave it on the shelf.
Best for WAP Hardware Wired
So far throughput speed on the TL-ER6120 seems a bit faster. I'll have to contact TP-LINK engineers to see what's in one. There is no reference to what's inside except for the memory and buffering. The ESR600H is really quick though on the WiFi side even on 802.11g in a mix mode. Time will tell on that one when I run it through the paces here.
Easy set up with good performance
I am a Comcast performance Internet user. We used to rent a modem from Comcast and use an old linksys 802.11.b wireless router. The Internet speed is extremely slow, both upload and download speed <1M. Sometimes it's even stuck wile the signal strength looks fine. I bought a Motorola cable modem 3.0 and this dlink wireless router. The cable modem arrived earlier than dlink cloud router. I replaced it with the old Comcast cable modem. Our Internet speed improved.
Wireless performance better than many routers
The DIR-605L is a decent performer for wired routing throughput with wireless performance better than many routers costing twice as much. Yet, when stacked up against the features of the equally-priced TP-LINK TL-WR1043ND, it doesn't look as appealing.
For the same money, the TP-LINK has Gigabit Ethernet ports, upgradeable antennas and can share a USB drive via FTP or UPnP, while matching the 605L with WDS support and up/downlink bandwidth-based QoS.
Offers a decent amount of performance on its wireless throughput
D-Link offered their mydlink cloud services last year and it allow users to effortlessly access, share, view and control the mydilink-capable devices on their home network from anywhere, at anytime. The company has also made the products as simple to set up as they are for use. Simply attach them to your network and associate them to a mydlink account; it's that simple.
Doesn't have much range
My cable provider just installed this modem. It works OK, but its range is limited. Unlike other routers that I've owned, this one does not have any antennas to extend its range. I would not purchase this router for this reason. OK if you simply want WIFI in near proximity to the router, but not adequate for whole house coverage.
