Pros: I'm not absolutely sure why this modem CPE has such horrid comments. It ain't a Cisco although it's the best modem I've ever owned. TP-Link is excellent for the price and can't be beat. This thing is very responsive and works nicely w/ my Centurylink ADSL2 in bridge mode and in router mode. Very ...
Summary: The connection is stable, but two things together are enough for me to look for another product. I don't know what to make of tp-link. (is "TP" for Twisted Pair, or Toilet Paper?) They have products with a lot of features and (apparent) value for money, but they suffer from significant flaws.
Pros: (trying to be nice) Configuration offers plenty of options Inexpensive Nice features: 4 ports and QoS
Cons: US-CERT Vulnerability 834723: "The TP-Link 8840T DSL router's remote management feature is enabled by default." -- that is, a remote attacker can log on with the default password. I actually think the router is a bit adaptive, but this is still really weak. ie: SPI is disabled by default in their...
A Replacement Modem Router that will need to be replaced
Papalamour "papalamour", Amazon
28 October 2014
Summary: Previous Netgear components had suffered some lightning damage. Bought this TP-Link modem router and an additional hub to replace. The previous set up required little or no TLC, configuration, re-syncing etc basically, it was always connected (we are about 2km from our exchange).
Summary: I bought this (along with the excellent ASUS RT-N66U) to replace the terrible ADSL router supplied by my ISP. For less than £15 I wasn't expecting much from this device but was pleasantly surprised to find it has a ton of features (not that I need them since I have the ASUS).
Summary: It was easy to install and it works. I installed separate wireless router with this modem and it works a treat. What more can be said. Routers are like referees. You only notice them when they do something wrong. However, this review is brought to you courtesy of this modem. It works.
Summary: Have only tried this on ADSL+ 20C BB line as that's all I have, but it is rock solid at the fastest speed the line is locked too - 7617/448 - as well as showing that the line in theory would run up to 10k/1k if it wasn't locked lower by the exchange.
Summary: I already own two TP-Link products so did not hesitate to choose this modem/router. A few minutes configuration and I was connected the internet. It's remained connected for two weeks so looking good so far. The added bonus is TP-Link is supplied direct from Amazon so no concerns with warranty.
