  • 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.

Didn't Work With My ISP

Robert P., Newegg

  • Summary: This is my first experience with a TP-Link product. Every brand has its duds and my experience may be an exception. This modem/router looks like a quality product but unfortunately the modem half of the equipment was faulty.
  • 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...

  • Summary: this product is not working properly, for replacement we have to send this product to the manufacturer location in MUMBAI with our own money. The response from the TP link customer care is not satisfactory. Before buying think once for the better one.

Ethernet Died After 5 months. Not Built To Last.

Gary G, Amazon
1 December 2014
  • Summary: Good router. Stable and rock solid and wireless output is strong enough to overcome the RF noise coming from 9 other wireless stations around me. Highly recommend the TP-Link Brand. This is my second TP-Link after my first died after 5 years. I was not disappointed by this replacement. Update >>> 5 Months later and the Ethernet ports on this thing stopped working all of a sudden. I'm not impressed and it would cost me more to collect on the warranty than it's worth.

Poor Performer

Rajeev S, amazon.in
17 August 2014
  • Summary: It could be a good modem, Not a good wireless router. I bought it to replace my Belkin router and expected a better performance. But this one didn't impressed me. The control interface is not user friendly as Belkin. MAC address filtering feature is clunky, compared to Belkin which I used to control access. Overall wireless capability is poor compared to small and cheaper Belkin.

Good product, but pathetic service by TP link ( atleast in india, Pune distributor )

DJ, flipkart.com
28 July 2014
  • Summary: Got this product with fast shipping from flipkart. average user friendly setup process. Used for almost 6 months and suddenly it went OFF. tried all possible resetting/repairing options, but of no help. Contacted TP link, got prompt response from TP link global/asia supports, but RSA case for replacement was very slow. went to TP link local distributor/support center for several time, but he always refused to give replacement even tough he have 8961 ND stock on his rack.
