Great for general use, avoid for VPN.
This is a wonderful unit for general household use, it has amazing range and performs quite well with approx 10 devices connected at any one time.
The biggest issue was with VPN setup. It will not connect to a VPN for business needs, as such the unit is completely obsolete. Support will not help, they have no clue what is going on. Avoid this.
Needs reboot once a week. People on 5G can't connect to people on 2.4G
I've been on latest firmware for about a year (AU_2.12). Needs reboots often. Dies if you have too many connections open. People on the 5G wireless can't connect to people on the 2.4G connection. Would not recommend.
Purchased in June 2018 at JB Hi-Fi for $249.00.
I bought this modem 1 year ago always had the issue from the beginning. Complaint to d-link couple of times and nothing got sorted.
Every now and then the signals drops out. Overall I wasn't happy with it ended up returning the product and never buying the dlink products again.
