BENEFITS OF A WIRELESS N 300 ROUTER
This Wireless N 300 Router uses powerful 802.11n technology with multiple intelligent antennas to maximize the speed and range of your wireless signal to significantly outperform previous-generation Wireless G MIMO devices*. The antennas on the Wireless N 300 Router make use of your home's environment by bouncing multiple wireless signals off walls and ceilings to work around obstructions and help eliminate dead spots.
* Maximum wireless signal rate derived from IEEE Standard 802.11 specifications. Actual data throughput will vary. Network conditions and environmental factors, including volume of network traffic, building materials and construction, and network overhead, lower actual data throughput rate. Environmental factors will adversely affect wireless signal range. Wireless range and speed rates are D-Link RELATIVE performance measurements based on the wireless range and speed rates of a standard Wireless G product from D-Link. Maximum throughput based on D-Link Wireless N devices.

|Value for money|
With the latest firmware installed, you will be able to turn off the router's wireless signal altogether at certain times of the day, to save energy. The DIR-615 Wireless N Home Router connects to any modem or ISP box to provide Internet access for computers and other network equipment. Wireless N technology offers more speed, extended coverage and virtually no dead spots while still compatible with previous network standards. This router transfers data at speeds of up to 300 Mbps. Setting the router up is easy even for non-technically minded people, with D-Link Click'n Connect: run directly from the product CD-ROM, this wizard takes you through an interactive step-by-step guide that will get you on-line in a matter of minutes. It also includes a simplified method of setting up wireless encryption, the WiFi Wireless Protect Setup (WPS), which works at the touch of a button. A powerful dual firewall (SPI and NAT) prevents Denial of Service (DoS) attacks and attempts to breach your network from the Internet. You can also define a list of allowed sites to restrict web access during certain periods.

D-Link DIR-615 Router
I replaced my G router with an N router to avail the higher speed. The router has a piano black gloss finish and 4 out ports and an input port. The unit is supplied with 5v Mains 3 pin plug transformer. You install the CD then connect the router and it all works like it should. The software lets you choose security settings, registers the device online with D-Link. I installed to Vista and XP and both installed well. The wireless network feature works and seems to have a good transmission distance, mine is in a room at the front of my house and I can get a signal in the back garden. I am very satisfied with the D-Link Router.

ROUTER WHAT MORE CAN I SAY
I bought this to replace an older D-link router that was showing it's age, and bought it especially for the N band to match a new laptop.
The setup is easy to be honest: I didn't even bother with the CD malarky that is included because I find they usually cause more hassle than they save. To get it working you just plug in the relevant cables and go the setup page in your web browser (just type 192.168.0.1 into the address bar). From there you just log in using the default password in the manual and run the setup wizard which just takes a few minutes. Simple.
The only issue I had was that it couldn't connect to the internet at first, but I quickly figured this out: I had to use the same MAC code as my old router I was replacing. This is most likely a problem with my cable internet and not the router though, but if you use Virgin Media cable it's something to remember.
This item is full of features, comes with all of the accessories you could need and is generally pretty great. It's also great value for a wireless N router, so the faster speeds and longer ranges don't have to be as expensive as you think.
The only improvement I can think of for this is including the faster Gigabit ethernet connection, but that always seems to bump the price up significantly and that defies the point of a good-value home router. As a minor gripe it's also a little big (~19.5 x 12 cm), which can be annoying if you keep it under your desk at your feet.
It's a good choice for a home cable-based network.

A little Gem.
I just could not believe how easy it was to set this little Beauty up to work with my Huawei Modem which comes with TalkTalk Broadband. Some of these combined Modem/Routers are a Nightmare to set up which brings me to mention about my old Cable & Wireless Router where i had to make numerous calls to India to get it up & running but with this D-Link DiR-615 i only had to put the CD Rom in the drive & follow the on screen messages.
I set mine up on my Windows Vista Laptop in the space of 10 mins then i tried to connect wirelessly to my Apple Mac Mini then my main Desktop computer which is running Linux Natty Narwhal & basically everything works perfect.
I really can not say anything Negative about it especially as i only paid £13.50 GBP with the Postage all in.
