It is clear when reading the threads in this forum that many users of D-Link products have had their share of problems.
However, as the forum host, I respectfully request that you, as a participant in this forum, refrain from excessive
"this product sucks" and the like. Don't get me wrong, you are welcome to post your opinion, but remember, this is a public forum and people of all ages have access to the words you type here.
Anonymous posts with that tone will simply be deleted. If you really want your opinion to be taken seriously, register an account here. It's free...
From this point forward, I ask that ALL members of this forum, use the Hey Mod link on any post in any thread you feel is in violation of this request.
I intend to try and clean this place up a little bit. I want this forum to become a place where there are more of us telling our stories and pointing out things learned in the process, learning about new firmware updates that become available, and yes, perhaps even that other firmware you can use on your D-Link too...
I want new visitors to the forum to have an enjoyable "read" while they are looking for the answer to their question without having to wade through a sea of "this sucks!" type posts. If the end result is just that, then so be it. The product will stand or fall on it's own - but we need to maintain a balance here so people can have a productive experience while they are here.
The D-Link support people that are here, are here of their own free will. This forum can provide D-Link with good consumer feedback which can improve their product, but if all you heard was negativity, would you stick around?
I'm here because I own a DWL-1000AP, and 5 DWL-650's - hooked into a Hawking 24 port switch, then to my Netopia R9100 router, then out to my ADSL Modem. The setup works decent enough. No dropouts or any of the other horror stories I've read in here.
I will rely on the good advice of the visitors, and of the representatives that so graciously spend their time here to try and better their product by learning about what is broken, and at the same time help the consumer. That is why I ask of everyone to use the hey mods link when something overly offensive may come along. Especially Anonymous posters. They can register if they want to chat.
Also, in regards to the numerous threads regarding "hack your ...", or "turn your ... into a ...". Let it be known that you will, in fact, void your D-Link warranty by applying any firmware other than D-Link released code. The information will be allowed to be here, but you use it at your own risk.
