Summary: Bought this router as an upgrade to support a new upgrade in internet speed, and so far it has worked fairly well. Used in an apartment with three people and only notice signal drops about once or twice a day with signal disappearing for about 10 seconds so overall not too bad.
Pros: -fairly easy setup -allows for easy creation of a guest network -much faster speeds when working compared to old, non-gigabit router
Cons: -some signal drops, especially on the 5Ghz band -had to reset router once
Summary: Was having problems with older D-link router, could not keep up, Chromecast kept disconnecting. This replacement router completely solved the problem. I was especially glad this did not require Windows to configure.
Summary: The return process worked very well. TP-Link sent me a new router and return label for my old router. It was convenient and the "special" price they charge for that service is no more then what I would have paid for shipping. I have not had any problems as of yet with the new router.
Pros: The replacement unit is working fine with no problems.
Cons: No real cons to speak of with the replacement unit.
Pros: Just looking through all the different settings made me happy. I didnt know what a lot of them were, but I did setup 3 wireless networks. 2.4 GHz and 5GHZ full speed. 2.4 GHZ guest limited to about 10% of my ISP bandwidth. Plenty of antennas. Looks cool. Great information lights and reset buttons...
Summary: Highly recommend and have many many times to everyone that asks me what to buy. I work for an ISP and share this link on Newegg quite often!
Pros: Best money spent on a new AC router! TP-Link far exceeds the quality of most brands and at a lot less money. This router broadcasts throughout indoors very well and carries outdoor to a very impressive range. Done speedtests on my 80 Mbps service with many devices both hardwired and wirelessly sh...
Cons: The only thing I would change is the distracting blinking green lights. I have put some black tint tape over them to shade em down a lil, but I think that solid lights would be just fine. Next firmware update? :-)
Summary: Do you research. I saw a review for this router on the internet and it sounded to good to be true. A router under $200. Set this up over the weekend out of the box and noticed extremely slow download speeds. Changed the wireless channels and still having the same issue.
Cons: Slow Internet Speeds, even after upgrading the firmware. Support is horrible.
Summary: Heads up on James M.'s review below. It appears he is actually reviewing a different product from a different manufacturer (Amped Wireless NOT TP-Link). There is no provision to dim or turn off the front panel lights on this model (and they are pretty distracting).
Pros: Very good user interface & easy to setup Decent range & signal throughout my house Button on back to disable wireless Got great deal in combo offer with modem
Pros: When it comes to routers I am not that picky. All it needs is to handle my 60Mbps connection and have decent wifi range, and it does. The set up was easy and internet is smooth, no breaks or resets, it just works.
