    Some D-Link routers have indeed not played well but D-Link was supposed to have come out with a firmware fix so I suggest you check to see if yours is the most recent. If I remember correctly the 635 was the biggest problem but has been fixed.

    It's been my personal experience (and maybe a bit of bad luck), but I haven't had much luck with the past 2 or 3 D-Link routers I had. I switched to the Asus RT-N53 and it's been working flawlessly for the past year and a half. All my devices work with it and haven't had any issues connecting to it at all.

    I have not had good luck with my last several D-links in a row either. No more D-links for me. Now on a middle level (don't remember model) of a Linksys smart router. No issues and lots of user controls.

    Yes, use WPA/WPA2 - TKIP - no odd characters or spaces in the password.
