Summary: Not great for connection, range is poor. Internet speed is slower than before. Phones don't connect right. I'd look elsewhere. I tried everything, updated firmware, different channels and everything. No better...
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.
Excerpt: Buying this modem it was really bad idea! Usually I am not so negative but common! almost 2 months convinced that the problem is coming from my ISP but finally today I realized than so many people have the same issue on the WIFI conectivity! So many threads on internet reporting the same problem!
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.
Summary: Great Concept, very poor execution, don't get it. It has alot of performance and stability issues, I & Myfriend got 2 routers and we have the router drop the network and connections every few hours.
