My faithful SMC router of 15 years died of old age. As a replacement I am seriously considering the D-Link DIR655 wireless/4 port router.

I am not into wireless at the present time but my needs may change.

Anyone know if it is 100% compatible with Ubuntu 10.04? Lack of compatibility would be a deal breaker (for D-link).

Thanks

Brian

Ubuntu 10.04 & the Dlink Dir 655 work well together.

The Dlink Shareport connector does not work with Ubuntu due to the lack of drivers. Since I will only be using the shareport to print I only have to switch the usb cable from the shareport to an on board usb port to print.

Problems solved.
