Don't buy dynex routers of any kind!!!
Dynex intentionally has it set up to
browse the web through their 3rd party systems (rather than directly
through your own IP) when you use their routers. So once you enter
all of your IP account information with them, you start browsing the
web through their own 3rd party server systems so that they can run
background web content in order to boost page views for their
affiliates! This slows down your web activity, especially if you
using multiple computers with one of their routers! Why send users
through dynex 3rd party servers to browse the web?
Because the more page views that are coming from multiple IP address,
the more SPONSORS they can get to support their websites!
Dynex routers are a SCAM in order to
get people to browse the web through their own 3rd party servers!!!
Why is it that when I type in a web address (after hooking up their
router, and attempting to set it up) that instead of saying “waiting
for google.com” or “transferring data from google.com” it says
“transferring data from http://192.168.1.1/
which is the dynex website! Why would it allow me to only lookup
their website (to configure settings) but then block all other web
content until setting have been configured??? Think about this,
their website isn't already on your computer, it has to be accessed
through the internet in order to load onto one's computer. That
means the internet is already working through their router, they are
just restricting access to other sites until you configure your
settings to go through their 3rd party servers for all of
your web browsing!
I have used many routers before, and
NEVER have I been asked to configure settings on some website before
being able to use the product! Most REAL routers don't require any
setup or configuration of any type. As long as you properly install
everything, and your computers are internet / ethernet ready then you
should be good to go. Usually if a router requires some sort of
setup online where you are blocked access to all other internet sites
until you configure through the manufacturers' site then it's most
likely a scam product! A product that serves as a front for getting
massive page views (for their sites and affiliates) in order to get
lots of sponsorship for having high web traffic!
If you are in the market for real
ethernet routers then you should buy d-link, or linksys products
instead of dynex! In my opinion, dynex is total JUNK! BUYER
BEWARE!!! Don't waste your money on this!!!
