Does the job

R. McMorrow "McM", Amazon
11 July 2013
  • Summary: Out of the box this had some issues assigning ip addresses. Technical support was pretty knowledgable but difficult to understand. A firmware upgrade had me up and running. Wireless speed performance seems a little slower than my old setup but I haven't run a whole lot of speed tests to verify that. I did not see the latency improvement I was hoping for by having the dsl combined with the router.

Wireless signal not as strong as expected

Jesse, Amazon
24 April 2013
  • Summary: I needed to replace a five year old 2Wire DSL modem router wireless unit that the phone company installed. I was having internet connection failures a couple of times a week and I thought it was time to replace it with a current modem/router. I spent a few days reading reviews and could not decide on a purchase, given that most units had similar reports of pros and cons.

Not as fast as I thought it would be....

Darrell Williams, Amazon

  • Summary: I was expecting a larger improvement in the wired connection but I only noticed a modest difference over my old Dlink modem. you may be better off going with a 801.11ac version of this.

Not fit for my purpose...

Ian Howarth "ion-h", Amazon
29 August 2014
  • Summary: I got this principally for the print server function; turned out to be completely unusable under linux, which is disappointing if not particularly surprising. The reason it had to go back,though, is that even under Windoze it doesn't support printing to my bog-standard HP MFP, which *was* surprising. Moral: check the list of supported printers, don't just assume that a product with a supposedly industry-standard interface will work.

Good product, bad TP-Link support

Nitin, amazon.in
14 August 2014
  • Summary: The router is good. Lots of features. I will recommend it for Windows based home lan usage. T-Link support has been a let down as I wanted to use it with a *nix based system and they were not so forthcoming to help. Now its lying with me literally of no use unless I hack it somehow to work with my *nix system.

Wireless signal range is bad

Miguel Aniceto, Amazon
22 March 2014
  • Summary: The range on this router is pretty much a joke, do not buy it if you are looking to use it to provide cover for more than one house division.

Der Profirouter für Profis

Alasdair, Amazon
15 June 2014
  • Summary: Ich habe den TP-LINK TD-W8970B Modem Router nach meinem Cisco Kabelmodem angeschlossen. Deswegen kann ich das eingebaute DSL Modem nicht testen. Ausgepackt, anschlossen, die Setup CD eingelegt, den passenden Router ausgewählt, Sprache auf Deutsch eingestellt und der Animation zugesehen wie alles verkabelt wird. Der Easy Setup Assistant ist auf Deutsch aber am Kabelmodem sinnlos. Also versuche ich mich direkt über die http://192........ anzumelden.

Preis/Leistung o.k.

Amazon Customer "connychaos", Amazon
25 May 2014
  • Summary: Der Router sollte eine Fritzbox ersetzen, die Probleme gemacht hat bzw. keine Internetverbindung mehr hergestellt hat. Der TD-W8970B hat sogar die theoretisch bessere Leistung. Konnte aber in der Praxis nicht überzeugen. Das eingebaute DSL-Modem mußte ich deaktivieren, da ich einen Internetanschluß von Kabel Deutschland habe und das Kabelmodem nutzen muß.

Materiel OK, interface logicielle a revoir

Philippe, Amazon
11 December 2013
  • Summary: Outre qu'elle n'est pas traduite (contrairement a celles des routeurs Netgear et Linksys qu'il remplace), l'interface web n'est pas compatible avec Opera 12 (XP)... En outre, elle souffre de certains gags de conception. Typiquement, on ne met JAMAIS les boutons "connecter" et "deconnecter" au meme endroit, afin que si la connection n'est "que" lente, l'utilisateur impatient qui clique 2 fois n'ait pas fait un On/Off.
