Hi,

D-Link routers are manufactured by a chinese OEM called BDCOM and its command line is simply a copy n paste from Cisco. You can configure them easily but real problem comes when these product fails. DLink will never provide you an advance replacement.

Had faced hardtimes with D-Link products so would recommed you buying few extra units for cold standby.

Hi

First of all

This is a cisco forum, whatever answers you get will be colored by that.

D-Link have two different lines.

1 is consumer products small ie routers and firewalls switches and so on.

2 is corporate products ie larger switches firewalls and so on.

The switches and firewalls are OEM from different companies.

ie they are not consistant in if they have cli or not and if the cli exists it is not consistent to be the same.

Two different models can have vastly different command structures and capabilities of the command structures.

I do not know what your company does or what downtime means for the company, but I would recomend something else than D-link if you need a stable network.

Good luck

HTH
