D-Link hooked us up with a DIR-685 and its time that we give this router away! If you didn’t catch the first part of the review, be sure to check it out here. The winner will be announced in the second part of the review which will be posted this weekend. So lets get down to business, how do you enter the drawing?


How to enter:

There are two ways to enter; the first way is the post a reply to this news post. It is important that you post a new reply, do not reply to someone’s comment as that will not enter you into the drawing!

The second way to enter is to re-tweet this news post but you must do it in a certain fashion. After you click the re-tweet link, make sure to add @dlinkpress and @bdsams to the tweet! It is important to do it this way to make sure your information gets pulled into the pool so you have a chance at winning.

Finally, you can enter each day up until the drawing (but not more than once per day, we can tell if you do) using both methods. There are no restrictions on location either, anyone can enter and anyone can win! Good Luck!
