The D-Link Wireless N 300 Router (DIR-615) is ideal for upgrading your existing wireless home network. With QoS (Quality of Service) bandwidth optimization to analyze and separate multiple data streams, the DIR-615 has the smarts to handle multiple wireless devices and enable smooth streaming across your entire home network. Upgrading your home network to Wireless N 300 provides an excellent solution for sharing an Internet connection and files such as video, music, photos, and documents. Not only does the D-Link Wireless N 300 technology extend your wireless range, it’s also backwards compatible with previous-generation wireless devices.

D-Link DIR-615 Wireless Installation Considerations

D-Link DIR-615 Wireless Installation Considerations

The D-Link wireless router lets you access your network using a wireless connection from virtually anywhere within the operating range of your wireless network. Keep in mind that the number, thickness and location of walls, ceilings, or other objects that the wireless signals must pass through, may limit the range. Typical ranges vary depending on the types of materials and background RF (radio frequency) noise in your home or business. The key to maximizing wireless range is to follow these basic guidelines:

1. Keep the number of walls and ceilings between the D-Link router and other network devices to a minimum – each wall or ceiling can reduce your adapter’s range from 3-90 feet (1-30 meters.) Position your devices so that the number of walls or ceilings is minimized.

2. Be aware of the direct line between network devices. A wall that is 1.5 feet thick (.5 meters), at a 45-degree angle appears to be almost 3 feet (1 meter) thick. At a 2-degree angle it looks over 42 feet (14 meters) thick! Position devices so that the signal will travel straight through a wall or ceiling (instead of at an angle) for better reception.

3. Building Materials make a difference. A solid metal door or aluminum studs may have a negative effect on range. Try to position access points, wireless routers, and computers so that the signal passes through drywall or open doorways. Materials and objects such as glass, steel, metal, walls with insulation, water (fish tanks), mirrors, file cabinets, brick, and concrete will degrade your wireless signal.

4. Keep your product away (at least 3-6 feet or 1-2 meters) from electrical devices or appliances that generate RF noise.

5. If you are using 2.4GHz cordless phones or X-10 (wireless products such as ceiling fans, lights, and home security systems), your wireless connection may degrade dramatically or drop completely. Make sure your 2.4GHz phone base is as far away from your wireless devices as possible. The base transmits a signal even if the phone in not in use.

DIR-615 and DIR-655 802.11n  wireless router look similar to the differences? Here I will describe in detail the difference between them.

1: the difference between port

DIR-615: -1 month Mbps WAN port, 4 Fast LAN port support MDI / MDI-X technology.
DIR-655: -1 Gigabit WAN port, four Gigabit LAN port support MDI / MDI-X technology.

2 Transfer rate and the amount of belt machine

DIR-615: up to 100-110M has a transmission rate, with the amount of about 20 sets machine below.
DIR-655: up to 130-140M has a transmission rate, with the amount of about 30 sets machine below.

3: DIR-655 is the world first Vista-certified through the wireless router

Through the DIR-655, users will be able to enjoy the first time, the perfect combination of Vista and network equipment brought many of the new Web experience, and to SMEs and home users of network applications and management to the limit. Vista The breakthrough lies in the establishment of a network of mains mechanism, which will be able to detect the network of certified products, so many complex network infrastructure at a glance. In the past the event of network disconnection occurs, users often need to gradually test failure point of failure, and now through the Internet Explorer network map feature, you can easily find the point of failure lies. In addition, Vista also uses a number of ways to enhance the wireless network, in which network aware feature allows an application aware of the network changes and thereby enables applications to achieve optimization.

Conclusion: Both products are soho products, with high performance, Dlink DIR-655 slightly better, not bad money for a friend who, DIR-655 is the only choice available, signal stability, and rate it faster our greatest strength.

Editor’s review:

The D-Link Wireless N Router DIR-615 annihilates any excuse you may have to not move to Wireless-N (300Mbps speed cap). With a price of about $40, the router is cheaper than even some Wireless-G routers–which cap at 54mbps–such as the Linksys WRT110. And you’ll get a lot for the price. While the DIR-615 lacks Gigabit Ethernet and USB ports, it has everything else you’d want from a Wireless-N router. It has decent wireless throughput speed and range and accompanies an easy-to-use Web interface and a generous set of networking features. If you are looking for upgrade your network to Wireless-N and don’t need any fancy features, look no further than the essential DIR-615. It is a great entry-level Wireless-N router that gives you possibly the biggest bang for your buck among wireless routers.

D-Link DIR-615 Wireless N Router User Reviews

Features:

The DIR-615, as expected from the price, doesn’t have a lot of wireless features found in high-end D-Link routers, such as Dual-Band, GuestZone (which enables you to make a separate wireless network for guests), or SharePort (which allows for use with USB devices). It does have a long list of networking features and a very responsive and intuitive Web interface.

Starting with the DIR-685, D-Link incorporates a Capcha with the log-in of the Web interface. This provides more security, but if you hate having to read the distorted text, which is how the Capcha determines that the input is not generated by a computer, this could be a nuisance. The DIR-615 offers numerous network features found in other Wireless-N routers from D-Link. You can then set up manual port forwarding–where you map information coming to a certain port to another computer in the network–or use the router’s preset settings for different applications and services such as instant messengers, BitTorrent, IP phone software, virtual servers, and so on. It also offers a comprehensive set of parental control tools including Network Filter, Access Control, Web site Filter, and Inbound Control. These tools allow you to control the network and limit access to the Internet by specific criteria, such as setting a computer to only allow access to instant-messenger services during a certain period of time. The router also lets you customize its firewall to allow some services, but not others.

D-Link DIR-615 works great for me! We tried a Linksys WRT-120 but it was not wrking well. The D-Link is easy to set up and does everything we need. For us, an outstanding product.

It Works great for us! Easy to set up and install. Even if the DIR-615 were more expensive it would be a super value. After spending 5 hours with Linksys “live chat” our WRT-120 still would not work. We use ours for Laptops and Nintendo Wii and Nintendo DSI.

I registered just to say it works fine for me. I used the set-up CD. I connected it wireless to a Blue Ray (Wireless N) for streaming Netflix. No problems…streaming wirelessly within a hour. (On the Blue Ray I had to disable wired Dynamic IP after doing a firmware update via ethernet on the BD) Excellent signal strength…. Wireless G laptop immediately recognized the network, excellent signal strength. Ran a ethernet cable to my Directv HD DVR….recognized the connection immediately.
No lock-ups, no reboots, no error codes, no tech support calls.
Haven’t had a reboot yet.
Everyone’s experience and equipment is different, but I wanted to chime in with how it went for me.

On Windows 7, it is a quick, easy and flawless install. Good solid connect during heavy downloads. Steady, quick during on-line gaming such as World of Warcraft.

Many had perhaps not followed the simple instructions. Read the instructions and follow the prompts from the provided CD install disk. Full configured by itself without intervention on my behalf on a newly installed Windows 7 operating system. Excellent security settings.

I had attempted to install two different manufacture routers Netgear and a Linksystem unit. Neither would function. The perceived cheapness of the DIR-615, is no reason to pass by the unit. It is an excellent starter unit or even that of an upgrade over an older and none functioning unit.

Now Price Range

$50.71 – $64.99
