I needn’t have worried about having to pay for shipping my dead DHP 300’s back to D-Link.  I just emailed back their RMA department explaining that the customer service rep on the phone said they’d pay for shipping, and got a quick and friendly reply back asking when the best time was for a courier to pick it up.  Apparently all you have to do is ask.

The old ones got picked up and the new ones sent to my office while I was on holidays.  I’ve plugged it all in and it’s working smoothly.  But only time (about five weeks it seems) will tell if this one will burn out too.  If it does I’m going to see if I can get my money back.  I don’t feel like doing RMAs every month.

More details on the trip forthcoming!
