I recently installed the D-Link DIR-655 and have had some good results. Have had it for about 3 weeks now.

Have had it like 3 weeks so far. I have my desktop computer and two laptop's connected to it. We have cement block and reinforced concrete wall construction in our houses but my kids have wireless internet in their rooms approx. 20-25 feet away. Signal degraded only by about 15-20%. My son plays World of Warcraft just fine so far.

My speed tests are consistent so far. Installation was easy. Setting up my desktops wifi was a bit tricky but only because I didn't have my user manual on hand and had to try and remember the steps to set it up.

If you feel comfortable installing this type of equipment, you should not have any problem. I had originally installed a Netgear router and I ran into problems with it. That's when I went with this router. I feel I have no need for dual band at this time so I felt comfortable with this router. You can try it and always RMA it if necessary. I bought mine at my local CompUSA store.

Netgear WNDR3700/4000
D-Link DiR-655

I have both, and they seem insanely bulletproof and just seem to laugh at the demands I throw at them. WNDR3700 as primary (pulls in a 20mbps from Insight), DIR-655 and an Asus WL-530GU as an AP. Video streaming all over my house, constant FTP traffic between me and my neighbor(I also share my internet with my neighbor), a VPN connection.
My routers handle it all

But that brings me to a question. It actually sounds more like a problem with your connection? Unless your router is crashing (if it were you would lose total connection). Have you checked to see that it isn't your connection? I mean, this is Comcast we're talking about here.

When you're experiencing lag spikes and bad downloads, start running a slew of pings/trace routes and see if you are getting high response times over your connection.

Try running this for about 1-2 days:

If the response times are high it might be your connection. You could start with your WAN IP address, if thats not pingable (make sure your router can accept pings (option is usually accept/deny ICMP echo requests), then you could try the gateway your WAN connection is using.

This is true. In my case the WiFi portion of my DSL modem went out. Had no trouble using it wired. So, I went out and got myself a wireless router and presto... back up on wireless now. My DSL provider said they saw nothing wrong with my modem/router and therefore would not send anyone out to the house. Since Verizon is supposedly coming out with Fios here in PR (when? Who knows...) I decided to wait it out and see. Am tired of arguing with someone in the Dominican Republic (customer dis-service center location) for something thats happening to me in Puerto Rico.

ordered the dir 655
