Cannot connect to dlink router validating identity
It's definetly not a deal breaker considering the speed of the wireless, but it's there if you want/need it. Hooroo :-) but thats just it if it does not do as advertised its nether perfect or worth the money or time and i would suggest anyone who gets one of this and believes they have been mislead by the non functionality return it rather than put up with what i obviously sub standard quality but thats just it if it does not do as advertised its nether perfect or worth the money or time and i would suggest anyone who gets one of this and believes they have been mislead by the non functionality return it rather than put up with what i obviously sub standard quality But it does do what is advertised and I am an extremely happy customer.And to change to usb 3.0, it's as easy as ticking a check box and waiting 1 min for the modem to be in usb 3.0 mode. For the record I have not noticed a drop in 2.4ghz wifi performance when in usb 3.0 mode. And worse case scenario there is still 5ghz wifi at full speed. I agree people should be aware of it, but it doesn't need fixing. If you feel mislead, then fair enough don't buy it – One person being misled doesn't mean that it is sub standard quality.
It is extremely unlikely this unit would be better than ASUS' offerings. Running off the switch are 4 devices – my HTPC (intel NUC), my Panasonic Led and 2 dual network tuners (hdhomeunr/kaiser baas).
This will be one of the main concerns in our review. There are no firmwares for the unit other than the production factory firmware from May.
In testing with an ASUS PCE-AC66 3x3:3 AC card, up to 60MB/s writes were achieved to a wired host behind the 2890, consistently. No updates is also unacceptable for a flagship product, but understandable given D-Link's marketing of DSL products varies on a regional basis.
In the past D-Link's hardware quality has been questionable on some units and D-Link firmware support is often very poor often slow or firmware updates never come to address issues. I have 2 hard drives connected to the D-Link DSL-2890AL. I was given the option to pick a directory for dlna streaming.
I'm inclined to recommend a modem/router wireless router combo and you can get very compelling combos under 0. I could pick any single directory from either hdrive or i could choose 'root'. Don't be too technical if you have any questions :-) Hooroo Any time Zaman.
