Considering new DIR-855 router
« on: April 04, 2012, 09:16:40 PM »

A thunderstorm about 3 hours ago fried my DIR-655 rev. A3 router. I heard a zapping noise and that was it. All the signals are messed up, even after a hardware reset, and the router runs extermely hot, with lots intermittently blinking and no connections.

I need another router with similar features, especially with a USB port for my printer.

I found the DIR-655 reliable a long as it lasted, but I never upgraded the firmware, which was fine with me. Nonetheless I want to buy a more modern solution.

Talking to tech support at D-Link the DIR-825 was recommended. But I also see the DIR-855 which has a USB port but evidently no Shareport support, just Microsoft Connect Now support. Is the DIR-855 a good router for my needs ?
