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.
Garbage DSL modem, Stopped working in one month
Very frustrating. It would not connect for long periods of time, in spite of support calls to Netgear. Finally I just trashed it (since I threw away the box which was a mistake since you can't return it without the box). Stay away from this badly designed product.
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).
Ridiculously high routing throughput
The RT-N56U is a worthy successor to ASUS' RT-N16. It has a solid routing section with more speed than even our friends overseas can use, Gigabit ports and two 11n radios that both support WDS bridging and repeating. But with its Ralink chipset, you won't be able to run DD-WRT or other alternate distros on it as you can with the RT-N16.
Compact size with the ability to be placed vertically or horizontally
The Asus RT-N56U is an ultra-thin and super stylish 802.11a/b/g/n router announced at CeBIT 2010. It features dual band support and can supposedly handle up to 300,000 concurrent sessions. Plus the RT-N56U includes 4 Gigabit LAN ports, a Gigabit WAN interface, and two USB ports for connecting an external hard drive.
Superb Wireless-N speeds
At the heart of the Asus RT-N56U are two sets of 802.11n wireless antennas. These create the distinct spatial streams for the 2.4GHz and 5GHz radio frequencies.Typically better 2.4GHz will offer three or four distinct antenna, as more spatial streams increase the MIMO effect, so increasing speed and workable distance.
The RT-N56U might be interesting for people who like to tweak their hardware by means of alternative firmware and add-on modules. It allows to establish console access and install additional software for more functional file download and media server features, for example. You should be careful with that, though. Despite its advanced hardware configuration, the router may get unstable.
Comprehensive firewall options
It feels wrong to describe a router as attractive, but that's exactly what the Asus RT-N56U is. A dual-band 802.11n Wireless-N router, the RT-N56U is glossy, tasteful and aesthetically pleasing. Oh and it's one of the fastest routers we've ever tested with outstanding performance and comprehensive firewall options. It would be better with rear-facing inputs but that's a minor niggle with this decent-priced router.
Simultaneous dual-band Wi-Fi
The ASUS RT-N56U takes router styling to a whole new level. It's slim and (we think) good looking; most importantly, it has plenty of features and performs very well. Its simultaneous dual-band Wi-Fi worked well in our tests and produced fast speeds, especially from close range. We do wish the router's Web interface was faster and a little better laid out, but you quickly get used to it.
The ASUS RT-N56U is a nice looking piece of hardware. It also can perform for you within certain limitations. These limitations seem to be range and penetration (of walls etc.). As long as you are inside the line of site you can maintain great connection speeds and also excellent throughput. It is when you break that line of site that we have an issue.
Setup automatically sets admin password and wireless security
There's a lot to like about the Cisco Valet: the easiest setup on the market; an attractive design that doesn't need to be stuffed into a closet to gain spousal approval; guaranteed wireless security as part of the basic setup; built-in, subscription-free parental controls; a guest wireless network; and a cleanly designed package that looks great on retail shelves.
Cicso has crafted a revolutionary router in the $149 Valet Plus. It's a near-perfect consumer router that delivers dependable, fast performance, and a virtually intervention-free setup that erases the dread associated with connecting gear to a home network. Other vendors are sure to follow suit with this type of easy router installation. For now, however, Cisco's ahead of the pack here with a pioneering product that will help non-techies get their networks set up with a minimum of hassle.
Easy setup works pretty well
The Valet doesn't radically reinvent the router to make networking remarkably more accessible, it just makes it easier to stumble through, as long as the demands being made of it are relatively simple, tooâ??making the $150 asking price a bit much, up front. The one feature that may justify the cost, however, is 24/7 phone support. If it's truly decent, the support could save you a night of troubleshooting with your parents.
