We bought the D-Link "WBR-1310 Wireless Router" about a ago for wireless access at my mother's house when we are visiting. While there are newer versions, this older basic router has performed very well for our needs. Here are my observations:* 4 10\100 LAN Ports* Wireless 802.11g+ Easy Setup; was able to connect to DSL modem and Desktop right away and had a WEP secured wireless connection in less than 10 minutes after opening the box+ Reliability; we live in are that takes a lot of power hits a
nd this router has recovered every time+ Good Wireless Range; WiFi signal covers all of the small house, including the second floorThere really are no special bells and whistles with this very basic router and it is possible to now find these on sale since they are far from the latest technology.Recommended, with the caveats above!CFH

We have used this router for over a year and are very happy with it's performance. D-Link customer service is excellent. I will look for D-Link first whenever looking to purchase this type of product because of the customer support I received on a recent call. It turned out that the issue was my software, not the router, but D-Link stayed on the line with me untill I was able to reconnect to the router. D-Link has 5 star service.
DO NOT BUY!!! The 1310 is end of life and will never be fixed. The system time can not be set to a date after December 31 2012. That means this device will not function as a router and will have issues with wireless encryption. Also if you want it to give your LAN network devices ip addresses your out of luck as DHCP service relies on system time to be in sync too.

Like everyone else, when I first installed the router I was having difficulties. I was having dropped connections, sometimes the SSID was not broadcasting, and a bunch of other stuff. I was about to re-box the thing and send it back, but I decided to fool around with the settings thinking I could not make the situation any worse. I remembered when I activated my DSL modem there was something called PPPoE. The PPPoE could either be hosted on the modem, the router, or the computer. Since the DLink
WBR-2310 has PPPoE built-in I decided to turn off the PPPoE on the modem and host it on the router. Low and behold, all my connection problems went away. I was still a little apprehensive that I had found the problem, so I started a large file transfer from my notebook to desktop over the wireless connection and had two other notebooks pulling large downloads from the internet. Not once did the connections drop. Things got slow but nothing ever stopped. So, for anyone having connection...
