A great buy

  • Summary: This router has performed flawlessly, since I installed it. I threw out 2 Belkin wireless routers because I had to reset them at least once a week to keep them working. This one has been working with no resets for over a month. It was a great buy and I recommend it highly. It is connected to a Time Warner cable modem and two PCs running XP Pro.

Not worth the aggrevation

  • Pros: cheap
  • Cons: I had this unit connected to a Netgear router, so I could have 1 computer NAT'ed off my home network (for security reasons). This unit kept losing it's IP address - easiest solution was to reboot it about once a day. After a few months, the unit lost it's IP permanently. Not worth the hassle to sort out why.....

Sigh - Router not dsl router

Martin B., Newegg

  • Pros: Its a friendly easy to configure router
  • Cons: It is not a dsl router... its a router. I guess im the fool for not looking at the last photo and seeing it is just a router not a dsl router. At least it was reasonably priced.

UPDATE: Inexpensive and Ok for most

  • Pros: Inexpensive and has been reliable for over 6 months now. And counter to my last review, WOL does work with this router.
  • Cons: Lack of Gigabit ethernet, or QoS capabilities.

Inexpensive and Ok for most

David M., Newegg
22 February 2012
  • Summary: Big disappointment has been the lack of Wake On LAN support. I swapped my older Netgear router for this TP-Link. I had a couple of different system on my network that I could WOL. I have this TP-Link configured with the same IP addresses (and obviously the MAC addresses haven't changed) as before, but WOL isn't working. Tried disabling the firewall and that didn't help. Seeing as nothing else changed, I have to assume that it's the router to blame.
  • Pros: Low price, and pretty good set of features for a home router.
  • Cons: Gigabit LAN ports would have been nice, but I guess not at this price point.

  • Pros: Pull it out of the box, plug it in, turn on my 2 computers, and I got 100 mbps. No driver needed!
  • Cons: White goes with nothing around here... no biggie.
