Sure, the D-Link DIR-855 has an OLED display, green tech, a USB port, and decent performance. But we’re not convinced that all of this router’s extra features are worth twice the price of competing dual-band models. The Linksys WRT610N, at...

The D-Link DIR-855 is a fast, well-specified and well-built device. It's also expensive and, good though it is, this Wi-Fi router is only truly essential if you absolutely must have the dual-band capability or the USB...

There are better 802.11n 2.4GHz routers, but where 5GHz is a viable option the DIR-855 is an excellent device. The ability to use both bands simultaneously without consequence is valuable for a media-heavy home....

D-Links DIR-855 router has more features than most, but these come at a price. The most obvious is the bright OLED screen, which makes it easy to check the status of your network at the touch of a button. It can display up- and down-stream speeds,...

Van D-Link bekeken we eerder de dure 'quad-band' router DIR-855, een van de eerste dual-band routers. Nu voorzien we deze van de nieuwste firmware voor een hernieuwde test; daarnaast zetten we het aanzienlijk goedkopere model DIR-825...

La definizione, nei primi mesi del 2007, della versione provvisoria dello standard 802.11N ha dato nuova vita ai produttori di dispositivi wireless, ormai legati da troppi anni al vecchio standard 802.11G.I grandi competitors (prima fra tutti Apple)...
