SupportCensor has no direct or indirect relation with D-Link Router. Only, it tries to bring every possible support alternative (official / independent / local / on-site etc), together, at one place. This saves consumers from traveling across the internet in search for trusted support options. Considering the fact that, support informations, over the internet today are highly untrustworthy, need for such a platform gets extremely important. We're continuously putting efforts to improve our services to the best.
