Summary: Got this to back to back test against current ADSL router as it was only £15. Sadly it is even more unreliable than my existing router, always disconnecting and attempting to re-connect to the internet. It got a good connection speed when it did, but it wouldn't last more than an hour and had a habit of repeatedly failing to re-connect until I rebooted it.
Summary: It's a cheap router and for a lot of people it would be fine. I was trying to use it with DHCP on the WAN (ADSL) and static IP /28 on the LAN, unfortunately it could not cope with this. However, I have to say that the TP Link Tech support was excellent, and they rapidly admitted that the product would not meet my needs, which saved me hours of messing around.
Summary: I bought 3 of these to handle multiple ADSL lines. They do just what they are supposed to, and have all the features of other ADSL modem routers at a much better price. Everything can be managed from the web interface, however take note, this can be a little slow to respond with some browsers. I find a stop/refresh often loads the page faster.
Summary: I bought this to have a good value for money modem yo accompany my Asus wireless router. I didn't want too spend much as I might go for fibre shortly. This does the job fine but it a bit slow to wale up or reconnect on occasions - Good value for money though
Summary: I bought this modem as a cheap way to connect to BT in my new house (no infinity or cable). As I'm a bit of a network geek, I wanted something that could act purely as a modem with a better router on the other side of it (A Linksys E4200 running TomatoUSB). I ran through the setup wizard, selecting VPI = 0, VCI = 38 and setting it to Bridged mode.
Replaced Drayek Vigor 120 as modem for ASUS RT-N66U Wireless Router
8 August 2013
Summary: We needed to rethink our slow BT Home Hub to get a signal at the other end of the house. So in August 2012 I bought a Drayek Vigor 120 as a modem situated where the BT line came into the house, and took an RJ45/Cat 5 cable further into the house and attached an ASUS RT-N66U wireless router, with an ASUS EA-N66 as a repeater / range extender in line of sight, but serving the 'radio' shadow' caused by a large brick chimney.
Summary: The TD-8840T provides fast and stable internet. Customers using just basic functions to provide internet to all computers in the household will certainly find extremely good value for money. Basic setup is straightforward, but configuring the firewall is complicated/unusual, and the manual is of little help. The language looks like a google-translation from chineese. The DDNS updater seems very reliable in updating a dyndns account.
