    D-Link DIR-825 vs. D-Link DIR-655

    Which one is better? Easier to setup? Faster speeds? Better range? Overall better? Thanks for the help.

    The setup is almost identical. If you do it through the GUI you basically just pick your type of connection, and setup your wireless preferences (SSID, encryption etc). The main difference is that the 825 has the 5GHz band as well for wi-fi. This could be a nice thing if you have lots of wireless networks nearby. Throughput is also similar. Both are great products. If i had to pick one i think i would go for the 825, just for the 5GHz functionality.

    can't speak for the 825 but I'm using the 655 now and its very good. I have had it for about 6 months now and I live in a single story 1900 sf house with the router on on side and my room on the other and I get between 75% to 80% signal to macbook pro and PS3. Setup was easy took me about 10 min and I've only reset it once because it some how lost the internet signal.
