Good ADSL with Lousy Dynamic DNS (DDNS)

Fly Boy "KC", Amazon
13 November 2014
  • Summary: Sent it back. Worked great as a simple ADSL modem/router. However, I also wanted advanced features such as simple port forwarding, FTP and the ability to choose my DDNS service. This device only supports www.dyndns.org for remote access, a fee based company with pretty poor service. Other DDNS options such as (the free) NO-IP.com are not supported in the router and can not be accessed without a firmware modification, which TP-Link refuses to do.

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
18 April 2013
  • 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.

Product is nice. Easy setup but coverage is just normal even ...

  • Summary: Product is nice. Easy setup but coverage is just normal even though it has 3 antenna. If you have big house or thick walls then you have to buy a wifi extender too otherwise no prob with product

Didn't completely meet my purpose - Good product otherwise

Gaurav Kumar, amazon.in
31 October 2014
  • Summary: Easy to setup and works well. The reason I purchased this device was primarily to increase the Wifi range my existing router was offering by replacing the old router with this one. Although this product did help but unfortunately - I had to buy a Booster separately as well since this was not sufficient. I needed internet over 2 floors with thick walls. I expected more given my purpose and the products price. However, that said, it is a great product.

No Client-server VPN, but otherwise good.

xxor "randomtask", Amazon
10 October 2014
  • Summary: Be aware, this router does site to site VPN only, it cannot act as a VPN server for client access which is what I was under the impression of when I bought it. Other than that the features it has for the cost are great.

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.
