Working very well for us
For years our home required we use two wifi units to cover the rooms over the garage and main living area. Our units were different brands, ageing and the younger generation was always complaining about the speed. I purchased the Hawking 300n HAWNR3 and an access point to replace and gain performance. The units are working together extremely well and the entire house hold is happy. I think the signal from the 300n might have been good enough on its own.
Works great as a Wireless Access Point
I have used many bargain & a few name brands of wireless equipment over the years. I bought this D-Link because it is almost as inexpensive as the bargain brands, some of which worked, some of which didn't & all of which lacked helpful software and instructions. I'm using 2 of these DIR-601's a Wireless Access Points. No interference with each other (BTW, 2.4 GHz portable phones interfere with all wireless network devices, so we switched to Panasonic DECT 6.0 phones).
Port filtering and modest URL filtering
If you intend to connect to ADSL2+ over a wireless router and are one of the lucky ones that can achieve a speed between 21Mbps and 24Mbps, the D-Link DSL-2740B won't be able to deliver the full speed to wireless clients. This isn't a show stopper as a large majority of homes are unlikely to hit this speed or even have the option available, but it's something to keep in mind.
Delivers an impressive range of features
For wireless performance we can't see much to be gained if you already have a standard MIMO router as speed and range improvements for these draft-n products are not good enough to justify replacing existing equipment. That said, the DSL-2740B does offer a lot of unusual features for the price with above average parental controls although we would recommend checking out Netgear's DG834N router before making a decision.
Much needed upgrade
Went from the TRENDnet 54Mbps Wireless G Broadband Router TEW-432BRP to this, and no more drops. My old wireless G just could not handle the bandwidth, and would give out on very fast downloads. This Wireless N router picked right up, and went faster, got better Mbps on my wireless adapter, and does not drop off signal. So now I'm a happy wifi user :) They sent it with the most up to date firmware, and that's a plus.
Simultaneous dual band
Cisco once again makes it easy for you to step up to the next level in its E family by offering a refurbished E3200 for $80 - $10 less than they'll sell you a brandie-new E2500. But if you're ok with 10/100 ports and somewhat weaker 5 GHz performance, a refurbished E2500 at $40 is a pretty good deal for a simultaneous dual-band router with guest network capability (even if it is only on the 2.4 GHz band).
Sustains good signal strength at distance
With the Cisco Linksys E2500 Advanced Dual-Band Wireless-N Router, users upgrading from last year's E2000 give up an antenna and Gigabit Ethernet but gain simultaneous dual-band connectivity, better ease of use, and better 2.4Ghz-band performance. It's a good router, but better throughput at the 5 GHz would make it better.
Provides lots of wireless LAN bandwidth
The Netgear RangeMax WNDR3400 is a mid-cost wireless router. This router works on both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequencies to offer twice the bandwidth compared to regular, single-band routers. The RangeMax WNDR3400's dual-band technology ensures that it has the performance needed for demanding applications such as multimedia streaming, Internet phone calling and multiplayer online gaming.
