Pros: I am revising my previous review from three eggs to four eggs because I have resolved my connection issues with the router by replacing the ethernet cable. If I come across a solution to the Windows update/anti-virus update issues, I'll give it five eggs. As long as it stays connected, I'm happy.
Cons: No cons beyond those listed in previous review.
Summary: TP-Link tech support isn't the best I've ever experienced. They haven't responded to my emails in a timely manner--when they've responded at all.
Pros: Setup was easy. However, be aware of something the instructions will not tell you--the setup CD is a min-CD which doesn't fit in some side-loading CD drives (it was too small for my CD drive). Fortunately, you can get around this problem by going into the modem router's IP (192.168.1.1) and setting up from there. You can select the setup for your ISP (assuming the router is compatible with your ISP) and the router will automatically setup based upon the ISP selected.
Cons: My experience is that this modem router doesn't work often enough. The ethernet on mine has been rendered inactive--sometimes for long periods of time--by both Windows 8.1 updates and antivirus updates. Changing the port on the ethernet cable and unplugging and replugging the ethernet cable are usually nothing more than temporary fixes for the problem of the ethernet going down.
Pros: Affordable, Good Design, Many Settings Options, Easy to Setup. I was able to quickl and easily set the modem/router up to work with Verizon DSL. With the latest firmware update just choose VPI 0 and VCI 35 with 1483 Bridge IP LLC for encapsulation. And you will be online in seconds. It also worked great with my NetTalk Voice Over IP Adapter. I simply had to change the settings under the DNS to 18.104.22.168 for Primary and 22.214.171.124 for Alternate. Verizon tried to sell me a n...
Summary: For the price it's worth it for me as I only have slow 748mb provider The range is a little short , however the web site does say that adjustments can be made that can help. I have purchased a booster instead and am fine with that. Don't forget this is a modem and router in one. Walmart great as usual.
Summary: I don't typically write reviews, but I'm so pleased with the simplicity of this modem/router, I just had to share. Yes, there are better units out there. This, however, does the job quite well and through several walls of my 2,000 square foot home. It was also easy to set up for my CenturyLink DSL. Keep in mind that you'll need some important info handy about your account, which may require a phone call to your provider.
Summary: I have Frontier, and it was a little on the odd end to set up at first, but now that I've got it right, everything is running perfectly. Hasn't dropped internet at all yet, have a desktop, 2 Laptops and a Kindle all hooked up and hasn't really even slowed down. We've only had it about 3 weeks, but overall, very pleased with this purchase. Especially at about half of the price of a similar Netgear/Lynksys Router. And this one includes ADSL2+ Modem built in.
Summary: Works well with AT&T DSL and seems to be better than Motorola 3360 a basic modem/router. Priced almost the same as Motorola basic modem, TP-Link is feature rich. I must admit it was very easy to install Motorola modem. I had to struggle with the installation of TP-Link and had to call both TP-Link's and AT&T technical support. One small little detail but very important one was missed and it took a while to sort it out.
Summary: - Yesterdays wired technology. Not gigabit ethernet.
Pros: VERY configurable. (I'll be honest here, it seems they took a DDWRT firmware, dumbed it down and removed a few features, and made it user friendly for the average user. Bravo!)
Cons: - Doesn't work with Centurylink [formerly Qwest] I get this error in the Diagnostic page "Testing ADSL Synchronization . FAIL" I wouldn't let this discourage a potential buyer [see end of other thoughts.] It could otherwise be the VPI/VCI settings. I'm not sure. After days of troubleshooting, I give up. I tried both the Qwest and Centurylink presets, as well as manually entered all the settings, verified settings with my Actiontec router and with Centurylink customer ...
Pros: A combined DSL modem and wireless n router results in a space-saving option for those who want to simplify their setup. The router is easy to set up with an intuitive interface and wizard to guide you through the process. I found the wireless range to be acceptable, and it’s nice to get MIMO in this price range. The modem comes with ISP templates for all of the popular service providers to quickly get set up and surfing.
Cons: On the DSL side of the equipment, I was unable to get the modem to work with my service. I have CenturyLink for my provider, which is listed right on the box as supported, but it just wouldn’t work. After two hours of troubleshooting with the help of my ISP service technician, I had to give it up as a lost cause. I tried a different phone jack, different CAT3 cable, rebooting, resetting, all to no avail. All PPPoE settings, username and password were verified to be co...
