It works, but

Drops out and have to reboot to get it to work. Next time I purchase something like this, I'll check out firmware updates. Still being sold today, nothing since 2018. UI on the router website is terrible, can't send logs anywhere or do anything reasonable with it. WiFi coverage is really bad as well, my Bluetooth headphones have more range. I had a Netgear router before this that died due to lighting...I miss that router. Show details

Very poor router and very poor service from D-Link

Only used it for 6 months before having to replace it. Poor performance on all tests provided by NBN service provider. Low transfer rates and dropouts. Replaced with another router and everything improved markedly. Centre Com Richmond wouldn't refund or replace unless D-Link agreed and D-Link just kept sending us troubleshooting ideas (all of which we had already told them didn't work). So, no refund, no replacement and a very poor router. We bought another router which was so much better we can't believe it took us 6 months to work it out. That was 6 months of dropping out of important work meetings and internet classes (that my wife was running!). My advice is to not put your faith in this router, or D-Link. Show details

hoping my D-Link would be the exception and not the same as others

i was hoping that with every product you get good and bad and that mine would be the good unfortunately i am in the same boat as others on here and drop outs are the biggest pain by far and when you have to reconnect printers or other things each time its just well painful so would i recommend this product . . . . . i am going to have to say no unless D-Link can fix it with a software update then maybe try something else. Show details

Expensive but average router with no ongoing firmware support

Router works okay but the wifi range isn't amazing like I thought it would be despite the price tag. It's not much better than the ISP router I had in here originally and given the placement of walls etc it should be better. My biggest gripe is that D-Link don't update their firmware.. it's shocking. I work in Cybersecurity and can't believe that they think it's fine to stop updating the firmware within 12 months of sale. Never again. Show details

Worst Wifi on the planet

I was so happy when I went to buy this as the spec's are impressive. However, Wifi keeps dropping out nothing is constant. 2.4 and 5 performance is all over the shop. Need to restart every day. Problem with Network DHCP server keeps failing. Doesn't connect all the time. Requires Static IP to be set on devices. Really disappointed. I wont touch an older D-Link device again. Bought brand new in April 2020. Found it was first manufactured in 2015. Doesn't look like there are any more firmware upgrades. Its crap great doorstop. Going to throw it out. Show details

Expensive door stop

Wifi keeps dropping out. Won't transfer data at a sustained rate. The wifi needs to be restarted constantly as it will just randomly drop out. First and last time trying a d'link product! Why did I go away from the trustworthy and reliable Cisco products just to save $100... Show details

Drops NBN, Drops WIFI, replaced once under warranty already

I have had the modem replaced once under warranty after less than a month. At the time it was dropping the connection with the NBN. The replacement drops out the both Wi-Fi bands regularly and requires a reboot every few days just to have any sort of stability. Would never recommend it nor buy another. Show details

Great - when it works

Initially I was happy with the Taipan, fast & reasonably good WiFi coverage.
Lately we've been having connection issues that require the router to be restarted daily.
I was going to order another Taipan as direct replacement, but when I researched the issue I discovered that many people with this router are having the same constant disconnection issue.
Don't buy it, find something else. Show details

DO NOT BUY

Wish I could give this product less than 1 star.
literally the worst piece of tech I have purchased.
DO NOT BUY THIS!
The performance is about as good as my 5 year old Linksy AC1900 which this was replacing. From the start it was expensive, time consuming and frustrating as hell. Set up was by no means simple. Even with Their "Tech Support" it took 2 hours to set up.
Trying to control the general function after that is almost impossible. Non of the Dlink Apps work to change settings- though they advertise they do.
Seriously purchase something else.
I am saving up to buy a competitors product and then with great joy will smash this router into tiny pieces and throw it in the garbage where it belongs. Show details
