Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 12reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great router and getting better! I won this router in the D-Link ultimate gaming giveaway, which i had to wait for it because I got it before it was even released to anyone yet. In the beginning there was no support, manual, or updates and slowly there have been firmware updates that fix the issues for sure. I have another dlink router and I love all my dlink products. This one makes netflix stream smooth even when 2 are on netflix and another on hulu and I am gaming, so it does what its supposed to be doing. The firmware is a pain due to the router page doesn't ever show a upgrade but when I go to dlink.com support page there is one, so usually it has been a month or so after the new FW before I get it but most other functions work as expected. Hope it just keeps getting better! September 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing I'm liking what I'm seeing so far. I've only been testing it for a day, however, I noticed an immediate improvement on my home internet bandwidth availability when I plugged it in (all default configurations). I think the user interface is a little clunky when viewing all network connected devices. Also, it does not work on Chrome. Using IE has had no issues. Other than that, I'm not sure why there are negative reviews. Being able to see all of your connected devices and the bandwidth that they are pulling is a feature that I have not seen in any router under $200. It's extremely valuable. I tend to ignore the negative reviews for any product because most of the time the people are looking for features that don't exist, don't know how to configure it properly and are just confused individuals.

Rated 3 out of 5 by What are you guys doing.... BIGBIG HYPE so I pre-order..... then firmware 1.10 come out, then 1.11B03 and nothing since.... I have to reboot my DGL-5500 to see what is in my network, my priority list same thing nothing show up until a reboot.... Speedstreem I not even sure it working since I can't see anything on my router interface. By the time it hase a firmware to make it work well many router will be on the market...this is the last time I preorder. December 24, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Gaming and wireless exist here. A router for all needs. I get it, why it's a 'Gaming' router and it does a great job. StreamBoost, with it's connection controls is awesome and the software is easy to use.I wonder why it's sold as a 'Gaming' router and not sold as a router for everyone, that actually can handle wireless gaming. I think anyplace that has multi-wireless connections can benefit from StreamBoost. Dual 2.4/5GHZ signals gives a lot of room for connections and a chance to get away from everyone else's 2.4GHz connections. 2.4GHz is the standard and now that 5GHz is being used more, it offers that separation from the crowd.
