We have been using a (less expensive) router for the past two years. We have 4 notebooks, 3 desktops, 3 wifi smart phones, 1 xbox, 1 ps3, and a Wii. Oh, and a blue-ray player with wifi for netflix. For two years, we have been dealing with constant dropped connections and having to "reset" our router by unplugging it, and then plugging it back in. Sometimes up to three times in an hour. It couldn't keep up with all the connections. It was causing IP conflicts, and sometimes the signal strength would drop way down in the next room. Purchasing this DIR-655 has completely eliminated all of our problems, we have all the devices in the house connected, most of them wireless, and there are NO dropped connections, NO need to reset the router, and the speed has also improved dramatically. Netflix now streams in HD. I highly recommend this router for gamers, or just anybody who has been dealing with the characteristics of a cheap router. I'm very impressed with this router and how incredibly fast and reliable it is.

This router is great! I switched over from a Linksys’s router that I had to unplug once or twice a day because it couldn’t take everything we had hooked up to it. As of now we have 4 laptops, 1 desktop, 1 PS3, 1 Wii, and anywhere from 3 to 5 Xbox 360’s hooked up to this router at a time. The Xbox’s are hooked up via a Netgear switcher to the router. This router has been running nonstop for 4 weeks now and not a single problem surfing YouTube, checking email, or playing halo on 5 Xbox’s at the same time.

We decided to splurge on this router since the $50 Belkin we bought didn't work for us. It was quick to install and has worked perfectly since. We use it with our iMac and our PC laptop. Its coverage is incredible. It doesn't matter where we are in the house (or in our yard), the speed is amazing. It was more than we wanted to spend, but it's been worth it for us. Walmart sold it for much less than other stores. We give our overall experience an "A."

I have 2 Dell laptops-one with XP,one with Windows7,and will purchase a wireless Printer/Copier/Scanner/Fax from Dell soon.Will this router work with all this?Is there additional wiring,ect. I need to buy, or is everything I need included? (Looks like this will work fine with my Comcast modem).I feel stupid! Thanks for your help!

  • Hey, your PCs may have trouble on your home network, as XP and Win7 don't always play well together. I have this hooked to my printer with an ethernet cable (RJ45, or 10bT, Cat5 these are all names for ethernet cables that look like phone cords with extra wires). My printer will work wirelessly, but I just use it wired, the setup was easier. The box contains the router, 3 antennas for it, and an ethernet cable which you will need to connect to your modem.

  • Yes this router will work with all of your wireless equipment no matter the product brand of the item or which Operating System you are running and no matter how many products. This will definitely work with Comcast modem and everything you need is already in the box. Nothing else extra to buy. So you will be all set with this one.

  • If your AiO (All in One) printer is network compatible, then yes, no probs (ink jets usually aren't network ready), but if you are wanting to share this printer on a network through file and printer sharing via your operating systems, then unfortunately, you're sunk. Contact Dell first to ask if the printer is network ready...will save time, hassle and money. Win 7 and XP are not compatible in the printer sharing aspect. You would need to get a print server. Will cost around $40 give or take. Hope this helps!

  • absolutely! Use Google or something to find how to do it with your router. It's pretty easy. The basic would be enabling "WEP" security. WPA-2 would be a preferred method though.

  • If you follow the Setup Wizard beginning to end you can change the Admin password on the router as well as all the Wireless settings. If you accept the defaults it presents in the wizard and write down the SSID and passwords you are done.

  • If by lock you mean having a secure connection with a password. It is setup from software included by you, your choice. You may choose to give it to those you want to have it. The password is auto given during hooking up by software so you don't have to write it down everytime you go online. Very easy.

  • Simply enable WEP encription security. Password required; then just don't give out the password. Make it really, really hard to figure out! WRITE IT DOWN!!! Plus, I'm not sure but you may just be able to disable/turn of the WIFI signal.

  • I'm not sure what lock the network means. The enclosed Network Magic software works pretty well, although it took me a couple of hours to get three devices set up.
