Can't use 3rd party firmware, but the one it comes with is good, no big loss.
Used it for 2 months, worked flawlessly and would still use it if the modem Bell gave me wasn't a combo that includes the router and the modem in the same box. I might still use it because the range on the 857 is better then the combo one, is dual band AND has USB 3.0, I don't think the combo one has that...

-very fast, consistent WiFi performance across 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands.
Refuses to hold my internet connection. Has gotten progressively worse and now it simply can't connect to the internet. I tried a clean refresh (hold the reset button for 10+ seconds and then set it up like new) - exactly the same problem as before.
I got this router because of the simultaneous dual-band ability. It's replacing another DLink, a DGL-4500 that does 2.4 Ghz and 5 GHz but not at the same time. That router still works great but I figured I'd pass it on to my parents and get the latest and greatest.
The DIR-857 started off fast - WiFi performance and connection speed was blazing. After a couple days I noticed it lost connection a couple times when I was surfing the web and gaming. In the next few days, it got progressively worse on its own and now refuses to connect to the internet. If I go into the router's settings I see it's not able to get an internet connection. When I click "connect" it will usually not get an internet connection, or show a connection for a split second, then disconnect.
Very disappointing. I'm going to RMA it and hope it's just a one-off. In the meantime my DGL-4500 still works perfectly.

Speed/Ease of Installaion
Strong Connection
I got this onsale at $99 which is a steal! I would not have paid the reg. price of $170 for this as it is a little behind the times because its not an A.C router which I recently learned existed by my friend. Another note to add is that I have not heard/read anything good about D-Links drivers/software. SO be weary.

On the flip side if you do get it for $99 or cheaper this is a great router. It looks amazing, and gives a strong connection. No dropped wifi at all.

Experience: 5 Days

This router has lots of features especially when considering the price I paid. Setup was easy enough when you have basis network setup knowledge. I highly recommend it at its sale price
No Cons !
fast connection, doesnt like to drop  often, would recommend to everyone

Good value for the money , quick set up , would buy again

Below are reviews found on other web sites for this product submitted by customers.

Comment: D-Link DIR-857 is far above the younger DIR-645 model because of the presence of N900 standard support and a USB 3.0 port.
