    Terrible device!

    published

    Don't use this router and modem unless you live in a studio. The signal gets easily distorted and it's got a limited range if you're using wireless. Using it in a studio apartment could be an issue if you have so many electronics around it and you're using wireless to connect to NBN

    Waste of money

    published

    DSL-2877AL is an entry level device, so it may be good for someone who just need the WIFI going but with low budget. Setting up the router is extremely easy if you follow every steps written in the manual. The reason why I gave only 2 stars is that the machine we bought last only one year. It’s cheap but it dies young.

    Poor reliability. Firmware update is function is *broken*

    published

    Had this for over a year. It worked reliably for a short time but soon after began dropping out, needing constant reboots to reestablish wired connection, and to reset the wireless so that new devices could join without IP conflicts.
    Eventually we lost connection completely. Checked all wires, checked power. No amount of "turn it off, wait, turn it back on" would help. I was recommended to reset factory settings, which DID get it working, but ever since the dropouts are worse than before. Attempts to update the firmware to any version result in the browser losing connection instantly, as if we're shut out of the control panel.

    We're stuck with this piece of crap till we buy a replacement. Never going D-Link again.

    Dlink support is hopeless

    published

    If you buy the DSL 2877AL router just hope that everything works fine out of the box.
    If you need to contact DLink technical support for any issues (eg. in my instance I could not print anything from my IPAD (the previous Netgear router worked OK)), good luck. I have found DLINK support to be useless in resolving this problem, which is definitely caused by the router.

    You'd think they would have learned

    published

    D-Link has once again been a let down in the budget router category. Very poor routing and horrible connection with several drop outs within a 2 month period. I was hoping D-Link would have fixed these problems that is obviously affecting every single router, poor quality would not recommend. Definitly changing as soon as I can get my hands on a new router.
