The DSL-504T is an ADSL Router designed for the small office and home. This router lets you quickly and easily connect to high speed broadband Internet and share your ADSL line. With a built-in ADSL interface, 4 10/100BASE-TX Ethernet switch ports and advanced router functions, this device gives your business and home a convenient and cost-effective way to install a secure, fast network with bottleneck-free link to the outside world. With this router, you can easily connect to your ADSL broadband line for Internet access in your office or at home. This device automatically creates an IP number and assigns for each user, simplifying everyone's logon operation. A standard-based ADSL modem built into this router makes connection to the Internet a breeze. The router also incorporates four 10/100Mbps Ethernet switch ports, providing ready connection for workstations and servers, while saving you the cost and trouble of installing a separate Ethernet switch. The router provides NAT protection for your office and home users from any Internet intruders and hackers, plus VPN pass-through for extra security. It also blocks and redirects certain ports to limit the services that outside users can access your network. Virtual server mapping is used to re-task services to multiple servers. This router can be set to allow separate FTP, Web, and Multiplayer game severs to share the same Internet-visible IP address while still protecting your servers and workstations from hackers. The router supports constricted DMZ to redirect unknown packets to a dedicated server/PC behind the router, enabling a client (such as a Web server) to fully expose it to the Internet and ensure complete Internet application compatibility. This allows you to set up web sites and e-commerce business from your office while maintaining protection for the rest of your office LAN.See all Product description

Set up went smoothly - taking only minutes to do. The Web interface is okay. You can also telnet to it if need be, although I couldn't log in as the "admin" user like the browser. I had to log in as the "root" user. Looking at /etc/passwd only "root" exists. I stick to the browser.
Initially I had problems getting it working with Linux (I use Fedora Core 3) - the router's DNS server couldn't handle IPV6-mapped addresses. So I set it up to use static IP addressing and manually configured DNS in Linux using the servers listed in the router's log file. It's now working a treat. (I'm new to Linux and networking, so the lingo might not be accurate - apologies.) For this, only four stars are awarded. Hopefully there will be a firmware upgrade soon.
I also (still) use Windows 98SE (dual-booting) and have had no problems there. (Except that I have to use Windows 98.)
Comms performance is good. I have a 1Mbit contended ADSL service and generally get between 100 and 120 Kb/s download speeds at non-peak times. I've found that some Web sites can also be very slow.
Only one "funny" so far: We had a power-cut one night which left the router unable to speak to our ISP but a router restart sorted that.
Also, the thing makes a bit of a whiny noise (due to the electronics inside). Initially this worried me but so far it's not been as annoying as I'd feared. I've got tinitus, so maybe this masks it. I also don't sleep in the same room as it.
I don't use the more advanced features yet, such as port forwarding, so can't really comment on those.
So, all in all, a recommended product, if you're not wanting to join the wireless networking set.
1.back up config.xml to your pc
2.find and edit the username part and other parts (if need be) within the config file
3.reload the config file
The router only accepst a 32 char input for username but doesn't mean cant use a longer username
You see, after just a couple of days it started dropping off-line (Log records 'DSL carrier is down'). So I phoned D-Link support and, after waiting over an hour before they answered, they fobbed me off with a small configuration change. I thought it had fixed the problem but, after another couple of days, it dropped off-line again. I tried convincing myself that it was still a configuration problem, adjusting one setting at a time, but the problem persisted. Finally I decided it must be a faulty bit of kit after all and so, after repeating the exercise of phoning D-Link again (I must have spent a total of THREE hours waiting for a reply), they agreed that I should have a replacement. D-Link told me that I could have had a replacement sent immediately, without waiting for me to send the faulty one back BUT, because I'd had the router for over a month by this time, I was no longer entitled and so I had to send the old one back first. I was then without an internet connection for over a week before I received the replacement. It lasted a just few days, too, before it started dumping me off-line at random.
If I send it back another four times, I will have spent the cost of the router in postage! It's time to cut my losses and buy another make.
I believe NETGEAR make a fine model (DG834G)!
