Awful

Travis D., Newegg
22 November 2014
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: I'm not sure what's wrong with this router, but I got frequent lag spikes with it and eventually had to replace it. Using a wired connection between my router and computer worked fine, but using it wirelessly was extremely frustrating. I don't recommend.

Zero Stars

  • Summary: UPDATE: TP-LINK customer support is no help. I have been emailing back and forth with them for WEEKS. I keep getting the same response - this router can only handle a few wireless clients. Does anything in their description indicate such? They have offered me a replacement of the same router.

I choose unwisely!

FamilyGeek, Amazon
23 July 2014
  • Summary: Needed a replacement DLS router at the cabin that does not get overloaded when all 17 family members are here using wifi. The old one would require resetting when too many were connected. Well what I got was one that is even worse. It does handle the multiple connects better, but at a cost.

Poor

20 May 2014
  • Summary: I am very disappointed with this router. It has lasted less than six months before developing a fault and becoming useless.Although its not the most expensive router on the market,it's neither the cheapest so I expected it to last longer than it has.

  • Excerpt: I received this modem and was very excited to disconnect my current router and connect the upgraded TD-W8970 unit. I followed the instructions but couldn't get the ADSL light to synchronize. I called the Tech support line and was told I had a defective product.
