Rated 5 out of 5 by David25 Good looking and a quality piece of equipment
Easy to set up, very easy to fine-tune the settings. Once working a good strong signal. On the wifi analyser app easily the best signal in my local area.In the first few weeks not a single spot of bother.

Previously I had a Netgear ADSL modem router and a Netgear wireless router connected via Ethernet to extend wireless to the top of our house. When I upgraded to high speed fibre broadband the ADSL modem was no longer needed but the Netgear router should have done the job fine connected to BT's VDSL modem. Indeed, everything looked fine from the inside but even though the port forwarding setup was identical to the previous setup I couldn't reach my web site or mail server when away from home. It was therefore in something of a panic that I rapidly researched and purchased this Dlink router and with some trepidation that I set it up.
I needn't have worried. With yet again the same settings plugged into the port forwarding page everything sprung back into life and it has continued to perform flawlessly ever since.
The web based setup interface is a little more intimidating than Netgear's but it is much faster and everything seems to be there. It has NAT loopback (something I tried and failed to discover before purchase) which is a blessing, though not vital. I think the wireless performance is probably a little better than the Netgear though it's hard to judge as I took the opportunity to move it when I installed it. I haven't tried out the cloud aspect as I have a full Windows Home Server setup so it isn't necessary.
For the price it really can't be faulted.
I should also comment that Scan's order processing and delivery is superb. The router arrived next day and I knew exactly where it was at every stage.
