Issues with D-Link Routers
We’ve purchased a number of D-Link DSR-250N routers in recent weeks, for use in VPN and VoIP applications.
Shack West is experiencing a 2 in 3 failure rate at the moment, with units either DOA or having power supply issues after a few weeks.
We suggest you avoid these units for now. We’re looking around for a suitable replacement, and we’ll keep you posted with developments.
The Cisco RV215W Wireless-N VPN Router has proved to be a compatible replacement. The only physical difference is 4 ethernet ports, not 8.
The Cisco units support VPN to the D-Link units, and are cheaper, more reliable and faster to start.
Many thanks to GC Support for their assistance resolving this issue.
