Conclusion

Summing up this review, the strongest point of the DG843N is the high speed of its wireless interface and we are quite sure it would have performed even faster with a card based on the Broadcom chipset. Otherwise this router is no different than other such equipment, its only serious shortcoming being the number of concurrent connections, which is very small. The DG834N’s functionality and setup flexibility is low overall. Trying to make a fast router, the manufacturer somewhat neglected the functionality aspect, unfortunately. From the hardware point of view the router isn’t anything exceptional, either. It will suit people for whom speed is the main and only priority. Otherwise, we don’t recommend it to you. This device didn’t leave a very positive impression on us.

Highs:

  • High bandwidth
  • Good built-in Help system
  • Quick navigation through the setup options
  • Stylish design
  • Large indicators

Lows:

  • Supports too few concurrent connections
  • Does not support multiple PVCs
  • Does not support VLANs
  • Low functionality of setup options
  • Inflexible settings
  • No traffic prioritization options
  • Antennas inside the case
  • Mediocre quality of assembly
  • Wobbling front and rear panels
  • Bulky power adapter
