Summary: We purchased the device to provide free wifi in a public building and therefore needed good signal range, easy set up and good security features to prevent inappropriate web access. The range is good, in fact it has stretched further than we thought it might. Build quality is fine, but there appears to have been a fault with the adsl filter supplied with the device. We had to use a spare BT filter in the end in order to get the ADSL working.
Summary: i bought the router to replace a netgear 1 as the rest of my network is tp link consisting of a 24port gigabit switch, 16port 100mbps switch, 2x 8 port 100mbps switch,200mbps powerline adapters, 300mbps access point, 2x 150mbps access point, usb print server, magnetic antenna, 5m antenna cable,5 port gigabit anyway stop bragging it runs well but has to be re-booted every now and then, runs warm like most routers and deals with a lot of traffic on a slow internet...
Get over those wireless problems - upgrade with this modem router!
5 December 2011
Summary: I had been having major problems with my previous modem router, which was a few years old. It had got to the stage where I could not really use a wireless connection any longer. I thought I had solved the problem by complaining to my ISP, who sent me a replacement. Unfortunately, this turned out to be even worse than my existing one. That made me wonder whether the modem router was the problem at all.
Summary: Bought this after two DLink routers failed after a couple of months use each. Reading reviews I saw this one recommended as cheap and effective and it certainly has been. Not one freeze since I installed a few weeks ago. The DLink's used to crash daily or even several times a day when traffic was heavy. The software setup was a breeze and best security implemented without a problem. Heartily recommend this product.
Summary: I purchased this router and it's been absolutely brilliant, it's 100% reliableand hasn't caused us any problems at all. Admitidly some more options within the firmware are available on other routers but if all you want is a reliable, constant wireless connection, this router is the best deal you're likely to find.
Summary: I chose this model above the more advanced (newer) TPlink models on the basis of its reputation for reliability, which on my experience so far looks well-earned. Our place is a long way from the exchange (which inevitably means limited speed), and the house layout also makes for a weak wireless signal. Both maintain their connection well despite that disadvantage, and it also has plenty of configuration options (including a fairly useful parental lockdown option).
