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.
Summary: - the router arrived in the original box and neatly packed. - easy to setup , although had to call my broadband provider a couple of times to setup. - didn't solve my problem of wifi range reaching my bedroom so a bit disappointed. - tried pairing with my old router but unable All in all, not a very positive purchase. I wish I could return it.
Summary: I bought this TP Link Router less than 6 months ago and today have had to invest in a new router. The device itself had been working ok for the first few months and at that point I would have probably given it 4 stars (cheap and cheerful). However recently I have found it harder and harder to get devices connected. This problem increased over the Christmas period due to the inclusion of 2 new iPads and a 3DS onto the network.
Summary: I bought this router to replace a stock Thompson router from my ISP as the range on the stock unit was poor - I like TP Link products they are normally very good however this is the first item I have ever had to return to Amazon - the reason was the unit would not maintain a connection.
Desperately needs the latest firmware...even then!

Summary: I purchased this for a friend and initially gave it 3 stars because I spent a lot of time in discussions with TP-Link technical support and thought I had got it to a reliable stage.....I was on the verge of returning it to Amazon. I installed the new latest firmware and for two days it was rock solid. I also have a TP-Link TD-W8950ND which has been very reliable from the start....after I stopped it connecting with ADSL2+ (now connects with standard ADSL2).
Summary: Easy to set up but too finicky and the internet light often won't come on until I've re-booted it 3 or 4 times.Having had 7 years of service from an old BT modem that never ever failed to connect first time every time I'm not impressed,I thought we'd moved on,not 3 steps backwards.When it works it's great but ,call me old-fashioned,I want stuff to work when I want it to work,not when it feels like it. Support tell me to contact my ISP who tell me there's no problem..
Summary: The TP-Link sells for a good price, but unfortunately, after buying this device in May, it began failing in October, unable to maintain the ADSL connection. Swapping in a Linksys router fixed the issue. The admin menu system on the tp-link was rather poor as well- every time I connected it asked me if I first wanted to run the wizard, and once inside the admin screen proper the diagnostics were pretty limited.
Summary: I didn't think my requirements were particularly rigorous when I tried to replace my ailing Netgear DG834G with this. But this router - as other reviewers have mentioned - does not support DHCP address reservation. This makes it unsuitable for my purposes, so it's gone back. Otherwise, TP-Link have made an effort to simplify the setup process. The installation wizard asks you to specify your ISP and then sets itself up accordingly.
