D-Link DIR-632 Wireless N300 8-Port Router for $49. BONUS Wireless-N Nano USB Adapter
Starts at 2PM
this is quite possibly decent value
typical dlink in that the baseload firmware is a pile of crud
ddwrt is a tad convoluted to install
8 x 10/100 ports which is of varying use in this day and age of NAS and the like
2.4 n300 2x2 which is ok
i predict it'll get ozbargained at 2.05pm?
These guys again. Don't forget the fiasco last time http://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/65184
Yes, the same place. I've bought few things from them before then I had the bad experience last time when they had LinkSys router. I won't waste my time on them again. Last time I managed to place my order within first few minutes they opened the sale and received the confirmation emails and all good. But I never received the item but just an email saying sorry we ran out. One of my friend also ordered from them after long time I placed my order, which was received. Somethings not right there.
Is this router good enough for a small 2-storey townhouse with Telstra Broadband cable connection, or should I get a Netgear WNDR3700 for around double the price from MSY?
in reality any decent router should do in that situation
however the reports of dropouts and poor performance on the base firmware should put you off unless you want to flash it
Looks like it's definitely a case of 'get what you pay for' specs-wise.
Add $5 for delivery. 100 units up for sale.
i honestly dont know how Dlink stay in business
this 632 has the same apple connectivity issues as the older 600 series routers I got for free from frustrated apple users
some people on ddwrt forums say that ddwrt doesnt even fix it conclusively… beware people :-/
Thanks for that advice. I'll give this one a miss.
don't waste your time with mwave
Bugger I need a modem/router
I have had a TP Link 8960N running 24 / 7 for a few years, no probs, if you are looking for a great value modem/router.
its still going strangely
remember you get a free usb 11n stick which is a good $10 or so itself
last time they accepted all orders later they cancel all/most order and refunded money :)
i was gonna buy one but i can't be stuffed with mwave AND dlink…
apparently its worth $70
The wireless USB adapter is by redemption. Too much effort involved with that.
dlink, imo, not at all
I had 6 months with this router and went back to a my old Linksys, signal drop out and having to reset it 2-3 times a month.
Signal was shocking in the next room, only got it because of the 8 ports!
I would not recommend this at all!
