This review is from: D-Link DIR-655 Wireless N Gigabit Firewall Router - IEEE 802.11n Compliant - 300Mbps - 10/100/1000Mbps - 4-port switch (Electronics)
I've never had a problem with this wireless router. Everything that I've needed to connect to this has connected seamlessly. Cheap laptops have been able to connect at full speed. Even my old Palm TX will connect no problems. Until I bought a 2G Ipod Touch and for some reason it would not connect.
So in a fit of madness I bought an Apple extreme wireless router. Now my Ipod connects but the speed of everything else and the range is significantly worse. The Apple looks nice and costs twice as much as the D-link, but it's all show and no go.
So to cut a long story short, I've gone back to the D-link and I'll wait for Apple to fix the Ipod Touch. Here I am, in the garden (30ft and three walls away) back with a good signal downloading at 20Mb from my broadband connection. Bliss! Truly a recommended product.
Update...version 2.2 of the Ipod Touch Software has now sorted the connection problem and wi-fi via the Ipod Touch is now very good.
Update 2 I've now owned this for over four years and it's still working perfectly. Still providing a good signal out into the garden and the firewall is still protecting my wireless network. The only reason I'd consider swapping this is for a dual band router but at the moment I don't need dual band. If it ain't broke....
