I am in networking.

I am using x86 routers to perform my gateway functions.

Two that are in mind are pfSense Open Source Firewall Distribution - Home and Vyatta Open Networking - Software-based Routing & Security - Open Alternative to Cisco

pFsense is more like a hobby setup with corporate firewall functions. Vyatta on the other hand is like a Cisco router. Both setups are not for the faint hearted. You really need a good foundation of networking knowledge to apply.

These routers are not your consumer routers. They can be a simple hardware using a Pentium !!! or Pentium 4 but they do really fast routing and hold more link states than your consumer router. Torrenting on these routers are a breeze.

Among the features include dual WAN load balancing and failover with CARP. VPN hosting servers like L2TP, PPTP, IPSEC and OpenVPN.

My setup is using a 1u P4 with 1GB RAM with 4GB CF as the disk. 2 Broadcom gigabit ethernet built-in with 2 Broadcom gigabit ethernet on a dual port NIC. Load balances 1 DSL and 1 Cable internet access on a round robin basis with failover. The server is a Cisco content engine but hacked to perform the function of a router. Top one is pFsense and the bottom one is Vyatta.

So far uptime on this router is 237 days. An upgrade is due. Maybe doing it next week.

Hi folks,

i have bought this router
DIR 655
D-Link Xtreme N Gigabit Router

My aim was to be always on internert,
so the router utomatically switches from a primary wired (DSL cable, T1, etc.) connection to wireless mobile broadband network when primary service is disrupted.

I try to setup my DIR 655 in different way but i can't do this.
Before to buy i asked at shopman and he tekks my don't worry this do what u want.

The secong product was this:
MBR1000
MBR1000 Mobile Broadband 'N' Router | 3G/4G Wireless Router | Cradlepoint Technology
more expensive but it's clear that i do what i want.


So now at home i have this DIR 655 , is there anyone that use it and could tell me how to configure it,
so if internet go down i am always on by 3g networks?

I was searching a dual router that offers redundant internet access.

Please help me


Do not use the firmware that is WW suffix. Use the NA firmware from North America. It is much more stable. Try it.

Go to the Dlink Site in USA to download the firmware.

Check from the back of your router is yours is a Rev. B if it is Rev. A download the 1.34NA from this FTP site. ftp://ftp.dlink.com/Gateway/dir655/Firmware/

Else Rev. B go here. ftp://ftp.dlink.com/Gateway/dir655_revB/Firmware/

If you do not know how to flash the firmware from the web interface. DO NOT PROCEED. It will brick your router.

THe firmware is

A4 version 1.31eu because i live in Italy, So should i change firmware?


I read this on
TP-Link TL-MR3420
TP-Link TL-MR3420 Wireless-N 3G Router w/ WAN Backup (300Mbps)

The TP-Link TL-MR3420, a robust Wireless N 3G Router features true 3G/WAN failover capability, you can set a primary link, 3G/3.75G or WAN (xDSL/Cable) and the TP-Link TL-MR3420 will then automatically switch to the secondary link should your primary service be interrupted. Once the service is restored, the router will automatically failback to the primary link–keeping your business online with the minimal interruption to users.

So i connect it to my adsl modem, I take a 3g usb card and connect to Tp-link.
I navigate by adsl if connection dfo down it switch to 3g connection?
If it do this I buy it, please am i right?

As a general rule I'd avoid anything D-Link makes, my bad experiences with them has led me to believe their stuff is junk. I usually stick with Linksys or Netgear for home or small business networking equipment.

Try changing it. It may work better. I am using 1.33NA for my other site.

None of the routers you have listed are impressive. So I am not going to say yes to any of them. I would prefer the Asus RT-N16.
