Summary: Very easy to install despite the NUMEROUS options you will find on the web interface. The only reason I had to call Century link was for the Vpi: 0 Vci:32 number. (Included here if you have Century Link). Other than that, it was a simple matter of punching in my DLS account information and I was up and running.
Summary: Make sure from your ISP before you buy a ADSL modem if your connection is ADSL/ADSL2/ADSL2+ (Older technology) or VDSL/VDSL2 (New technology). This is dependent on the connection they ran to your house and and not city / ISP. ADSL and VDSL are NOT compatible with each other. It is a shame that TP-Link technical support I talked to is not even aware of this. They think it is a faulty modem... If you have an ADSL Line: This looks like a great modem.
Cutting edge? Maybe not, but it does the job effectively.

Summary: When the old broadband router showed signs of heading for the exit, I looked around for a replacement. This was less than half the price of some and does not suffer one jot for it. But then, did I need all the bells and whistles? Maybe not. By all means buy them, but only f you are going to use them. If not? Get one of these.
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...
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).
Summary: Had years of instability on long line. Read reviews and purchased this router and sync / stability noe after 2 months is the best my line has EVER been. Recommended. Nevermind other big name routers.
Summary: I needed a basic replacement router in a hurry and this looked to be good value. Easy to set with Windows 7 and Vista but needed to do some manual configuration with an XP laptop to get it to work. Range is not as good as with my previous 3Com "G" router that would still connect from the bottom of the garden but is OK within the house.
Summary: This is the first wireless router /modem I ever bought and I decided on this one because of the positive reviews and because people said it's very simple to install. Well, if you are technically challenged like I am, it's not quite that straightforward. I had no idea what an ISP is and what my ISP login and password were. And contrary to some reviewers, the router did not work it out automatically.
