Modern Dlink Router with QOS like the Dir-655?
« on: January 03, 2016, 12:11:24 AM »

I have a 7 year old Dlink Dir-655 router.

I figured it's time to upgrade to something newer.

Brief Background: I'm on DSL, 6mbps down and 0.42mbps up. It's a reliable, but slow connection.

The 8 year old, Dlink dir-655 allows for manual priorities and custom rules, you know, like setting UDP ports 27000-27037 to highest priority. (Those are the ports Steam games use.) The Dlink lets me set the max upload speed my connection supports (0.42 mbps).

No matter what anyone does on another PC, the Dlink has PERFECT QOS, allowing for a maximum spike of 6ms ping in various games. No rubber banding. No lag. Never. Not once. (The gaming PC's are hard wired, most all  other pc's and tablets are on wireless N.

Is there a Dlink router today that has the 655's level of QOS? I've tried and returned a few other brands newer routers with QOS. And compared to the dir-655, they were terrible. So maybe I should try dlink, since brand has served me so well for so long.

Pretty sure most new Dlink routers have a new UI that uses QoS differently. They should be simular, but its hard to say if they work exactly. If The DIR-655 is working for you, why replace it? Maybe just replace it with another DIR-655? Were you looking to improve something?

FYI, some if not most newer generation routers are more simplified and using a different UI now:

Some features seeing in older generation routers may not be seen on newer ones.

Choose wisely. Newer generation routers work well.

Alternate suggestion would be to disable the wireless on the 655 and keep it running as a wired router for your needs then connect up a newer generation router that support AP mode or a D-Link DAP wireless device and connect it to the 655 and run it as an upgraded wireless AP.
This works well as an AP:  ;D

Good Luck.
