    It “just works” but…BIG WARNING. As supplied, v1.05 of the firmware has a security defect. If you use this as a modem or modem/router to connect to your ISP (therefore you enter your username and password, encapsulation, PPPoA, DNS settings etc then it can and will be hacked. One symptom is that the DNS settings can be changed from the internet without authentication (logging on). Generally the hack is used to redirect http calls from your browser to popup ad services or porn sites. Contacting D-Link with the symptoms causes them to mail you v1.07 of the firmware which solves the issue. Why this has not been put onto their web site or supplied out of the box I don’t know.

    If, however, you use it in Bridge mode, whereby it is a pure modem and simply passes the connection to your normal router to handle the username and password, DNS settings etc, then there is no problem. But in this case, once conifgured in Bridge mode, you can no longer access its web configuration in order to view the ADSL stats such as connection speed and SNR values.

    I note that AAISP (Andrews & Arnold) will supply this device if you want but they publicise that it has security issues and they pre-configure it in Bridge mode and place tape over the Reset hole as a deterrent against resetting it to factory settings!

    This review is from: D-Link DSL-320B ADSL2+ Ethernet Modem (Electronics)
    Mainly reviewing this to redress the balance. There are so many inaccurate negative reviews!

    This is an ADSL2+ Modem. It DOES contain a router, but it can (and usually should) be turned off. Most unsuccessful attempts to bridge this unit to a separate router stem from a misunderstanding about how this works.

    I use it with an Airport Extreme 5th Generation and it works perfectly.

    Proceed as follows:

    Connect laptop to DSL-320B with supplied ethernet cable. Access web interface of DSL-320B and follow the wizard to input settings for your ISP. Confirm that you can now access internet. Now change operating mode to Bridging. There are two types, most UK ISPs use VC-MUX, but check with yours. Next step is very important! Go to LAN settings and DISABLE the inbuilt DHCP server. When you do this, you will lose connection with the DSL-320B. This is expected! Now, connect the ethernet cable to the WAN point on your router. On an Apple router, this is the port with the circular symbol next to it. On the Airport Utility, select PPPoE mode and input your ISP username and password. Airport light goes green – bingo!

    Note that when using as a bridge you can no longer access the inbuilt configuration utility – but if you’ve set it up correctly you won’t need to. Should you need to start again (perhaps because you changed ISP) you can factory reset by holding in reset button for 20 seconds. This will also switch the inbuilt DHCP server back on so that you can easily configure it again.
