Very limited success using WISP mode

Kirk S., Amazon
10 December 2014
  • Summary: While this device seems to work as I would expect in Access Point mode, my primary need was for it's WISP function to set up a LAN hosting an android tablet and Chromecast while providing WAN access through hotel wireless. I was successful in establishing connections to less than half the wireless acesss points that I tried while running the latest TP-LINK firmware version. Curious as to whether I had bad hardware, I flashed in OpenWRT.

Enemic

Pete Moss, Amazon
14 November 2014
  • Summary: This PoE injector does not have the required "punch" to power a D-Link DAP-2660 Wireless Access Point with a Cat6 23AWG cable run of about 100 ft. It would power the WAP for a while and then clients would complain about getting Out of Range warnings and their connection would go dead. A power cycle would temporarily correct the problem.

This is not a SIM card based router

kingrk, Souq
1 August 2014
  • Excerpt: - This is not a 3G/4G pocket router, in which you can insert a SIM card and make it work and you must already have a USB modem of your own to make this work. - When you insert your USB modem into this device, this then becomes a hotspot, which multiple people can connect to. - Lastly, it doesn't have a battery, which means that you will have to always have a power source (connect it to your laptop using usb cable or connect it to an electricity socket using an AC adaptor
  • Pros: Portable
  • Cons: Must be connected to a modem to work

Doesn't fully support 802.3af.

Mark G. Gibson, Amazon
21 February 2014
  • Summary: The PoE standard has two "modes" -- Mode A where the power comes down pins 1/2 & 3/6, and Mode B where it comes down 4/5 & 7/8. A compliant injector is supposed to supply either Mode A or Mode B power, depending on a device's requirements. In my testing, with a Mode A device this product began to negotiate but never actually supplied power (i.e. constantly blinking LED), and with a Mode B device this product never even tried to negotiate.

Too bad the setup was too complicated.

Laith Zraikat, Amazon
20 December 2013
  • Summary: I could never get this to work even though I'm a technical guy. The browser admin for this thing is too buggy. you try to follow the instructions and then the page gives you an error and you have to start all over. I gave up after an hour of trying to set it up. Returned it.

Before You Buy....

AUSFTer, Amazon
23 June 2013
  • Summary: Although the splitter does, in fact, come with a short power jumper (goes from "DC Out" on the splitter to the non-POE device) it only has ONE tip size. Unlike competing products in this price range that come with several different tip size (and polarity) options, this one is not designed with swap-able tips. Consider a different POE splitter unless you know your non-POE device requires the exact tip size this splitter comes with.

Not compatible with Truconnect USB760 (If your USB stick is not on the compatibility list you are out of luck)

Alicat, Amazon
10 February 2013
  • Summary: Purchased this modem to work with an embedded device that requires Ethernet. Had had success with a Cradlepoint modem in the past and thought I would give this a go since the USB760 modem from Truconnect appeared on the "other" list on the TP-link site and the price was good. Truconnect is not an option in the TP-link settings for the USA region but the carrier they use (Sprint) is so I tried that.

Good while it lasted...

Anonymous, Newegg
20 March 2012
  • Summary: Had a project I've wanted to work on for a while and thought this router would be perfect for a tiny mobile installation since the unit can be powered for days on the IOGEAR usb battery that NewEgg also sells. Everything was up and running smoothly... for about two days. The router is now a tiny, adorable paperweight. I'm unable to connect via telnet, ssh or by plugging it into my workstation via cat5. Looks like it just went teets up.
  • Pros: Absolutely tiny, strong signal from the other side of my (admittedly small) house, good support and documentation.
  • Cons: None until it stopped working.

Not so great product to buy, low range

Sudhakar VR, flipkart.com
12 February 2015
  • Summary: Made wrong decision in buying this product, cable internet does not perform as excepted by me. Inspite of various configuration tried with the device, it does not have higher range even on flat 600 sqft house.
