Don't bother.

Ethan A Burchett, Amazon

  • Summary: Perhaps I got a defective unit. You can be the judge. I purchased this unit because of the gigabit LAN ports and the supposedly strong wifi signal. The LAN on this unit works fairly well, however it would only give a gigabit connection to one of the computers on the network the other two computers always got a 100mpbs connection. I know all of the computers in my network have gigabit ports, so I know the problem was not slow motherboards.

  • Summary: We have 3 desktops and 3 laptops all networked together. I never had a problem with any of them functioning, printing, etc across the network with my old router, but for some reason with this one I have one desktop and printer that will not work. All 45 minutes on the line with barely English speaking tech support got me was that it must be my computer because the fact that the other ones are working is proof there is nothing wrong with the router, despite the fact that...

TP-Link TD-W8970 Inconsistent performance

Frank Nails, Amazon
11 June 2013
  • Summary: The wireless router functions of the TP_Link provide excellent signal strength everywhere in my house. I have 2 tablets and can always get a full strength signal. Unfortunately the modem is not anywhere near as good. It is definitely slower than a Netgear modem I had previously and it loses the DSL signal every couple of days requiring a reboot. This should not be necessary.

  • Summary: not worth for home use. the USB transfer speed is very slow (1.5Mbps only). (Ethernet speed is ok to access the USB conneted hard disk). hence 300 Mbps will not be usable at home.

Range not as expected

padhu_lp, amazon.in

  • Summary: I bought this as I wanted to replace my existing modem router which is beetel 450TC1, to extend wifi coverage in my home which is a 4 BHK. I read some reviews and based on what they said, I expected it to provide a good coverage to all the rooms. Unfortunately, I find this is not any better in range. For half the price I paid, I feel I would have been better off buying a range extender and got the coverage required. Don't buy this if you are looking for range or speed.

No website, no support, deal breaker for me.

Paulie "PM", Amazon
11 August 2014
  • Summary: The Modem/Router itself is a breeze to set up but that praise comes with some deal breaking caveats! Firstly the TP website is never online it is always "can't find the server at www.tp-link.com" or ".co.uk", this alone is a deal breaker for me as I can't download updates, or fixes or software for the unit. It really isn't the best advertisement for a company that sells modems/routers etc.
