If you look at the latest router models, you’ll notice a trend. Somewhere along the line, router manufacturers figured that a futuristic design is a profitable design, and now we have modems that look like they were plugged out of the Predator’s spaceship.

For the most part, D-Link managed to avoid falling into these clutches. Their routers still carry the sturdy old design that we’ve come to appreciate (or not appreciate, if you’ve been having trouble with them). The D-Link DIR-601 Wireless N150 Home Router is no different: it’s definitely a throwback to a time when modems weren’t meant to be a part of interior design.

As you’ll soon find out, the simplicity extends past the design. With four LAN plugs, one internet plug, a power cord and a reset button, the DIR-601 is as bare-bones as they come. That’s not to say it can’t still serve its purpose, and we imagine it’s going to be competing with the fancy-looking models for years to come.

We did mention that the sturdy old models can cause trouble despite their simplicity, and we meant it. Despite a head-spinning list of features, most of which you’d probably have no use for anyways, the DIR-601 is still a fairly complex gadget. We’d wager you’re unlikely to even get it up and running for the first time without the D-Link DIR-601 manual.

Where can I download the D-Link DIR-601 User Manual?

If you aren’t willing to call tech support, our instructions can also help you get your internet up and running again if there’s suddenly a yellow sign on the icon. Plus, the D-Link DIR-601 user manual will explain how to interact with the feared router interface that many dare not even talk about. What more could you want? Oh, that’s right, the link.
