With the latest firmware update, the D-Link DIR-655 is arguably one of the best among single-band Wireless-N routers on the market.

D-Link has added a number of valuable features via firmware updates, such as USB drive and printer sharing, and a special Wi-Fi guest zone. Factor in a low price tag plus comprehensive routing and firewall features, and it's no wonder the DIR-655 is one of our top picks.

Although the D-Link DIR-655 Wireless N Gigabit Router may not be the best looking router, it certainly offers great value for money. It is also easy to set up and manage, making a great all-round package for first-time users in particular.

My previous router was a netgear without any wireless capabilites. It also wouldn't recognize my xbox 360 on the network and would lose internet access consistently. This is the reason I decided to shell out a few bucks on the DIR-655. Design: A nice looking glossy white, it reminds me of...

D-Link is by far making the best consumer routers on the market today, I can have Bittorent, Games, VOIP, Slacker, and anything else all running at the same time. I tried the Apple and Linksys first but they could not handle the QOS. They both had great radios and both 2.4ghz and 5ghz...

This router has a lot of features. The issue I have with it is that the router isn't really great at delivering anything in particular. I do like the QoS features, however they are over shadowed by the fact that even an old Linksys WRT router has better coverage. In order to remove $...

D-Link has made a stable router that works around the clock. Best performance when you turn security of and lock all computer to the mac address instead. The menu system is a bit messy as usual when it comes to D-Link. It's hard to find some functions in menu systems and you have to think a...

I got this router as a Christmas gift a couple of years ago and have really enjoyed it. The QoS engine has let other network users go nuts on the PCs in the house, without detracting from my Xbox Live experience. It took a little tweaking, but in the end it did make a difference with gaming and...

Really pretty simple -- I've owned a lot of different brands and models of routers in my day, and each and every one of them used to require me to reboot it at some degree of frequency, some better than others of course. I've only had to reboot this one 4 times in over a year. It...

I was looking for a device to handle my wired items (Dish Receiver, XBox 360) and wireless items (Macbook, Wii, and guests). All this needed to be online with a cable modem. Pretty simple. I like to limit clutter and effort. I didn't like the price of Apple's Airport Extreme though...

I've had this router for some time now. The hardware seems to be a-ok, but the firmware does not work so well. Even though upgrading the firmware several times there are still problems with the implementation of the DHCP-client. It does not seem to work well with HP ProCurve switches that...

I wish i knew how to use all of the settings and features this router comes equipped with but I'm not very schooled in the art of networking. I just wanted a good reliable wireless router that I could hook up to my PC and use with the laptops i work on at the house. I have a 2000+ sq ft...

I was pretty excited to get this router. It had every feature I wanted and lots that I'd never use. Initially it was a dream come true compared to my previous Linksys and NetGear products. As the wireless devices running off it got more capable, the more I realized it wasn't a great as I...

DIR-655 has run like a dream during the two plus years I've owned it. The setup was quite easy. Devices were seen quickly and even has utilized the usb port, for use of an external hard drive.
