D-Link DIR-655 Review, Part 2

I’ve now been using my D-Link DIR-655 802.11b/g/n Xtreme N Gigabit Router from Newegg for about 5 months, and I’ve learned a bit more about it.

As I mentioned in my preliminary review, the DIR-655 can stream 10 FPS 640×480 video from 8 of my D-Link DCS-930L Wireless N cameras simultaneously; however, I have added 5 more cameras to my network. The DIR-655 seems to choke on the 3 to 4 MB/sec of wireless traffic, requiring a reset after 5 to 10 minutes.

I also mentioned that some people have experienced poor performance with the DNS Relay function enabled. After upgrading my Nexus One to Android 2.3.6, I found that it would not resolve hostnames when connected to the router with DNS Relay disabled. I have not noticed any problems since changing the setting.

Update (12/04/2013): See part 3 of my review here.
