My previous router was a d-Link DI-624. After years of stellar service it began to lose connections regulary, speeds ranged from 54mbps to 2mbps. A nightly 1GB ntbackup backup from my notebook to a mapped network drive on my desktop in another room sometimes ran from 9PM to 5AM with the DI-624, which I replaced with the DIR-601.
