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.
Summary: Pros: Works great for regular consumer use, plenty of options like the name brands, all at a fraction of the cost. Cons: Not recommended for heavy use such as home web server or heavy file sharing use, will drop packets after pushing 40Mbits/sec consistently for 24+ hrs.
Summary: I've tried quit a few routers in the past and had problems with most of them. Then I purchased a TP-Link router (not wireless) and it worked great without any hassles. Then I needed a wireless router, so I went directly for another TP-Link router and again it works great. Installation is quick and easy.
Summary: I needed extra ports to plug into my DSL router ... the kind of thing that if it were USB, you would just plug in a hub. I was therefore pleased that the excellent software and the excellent documentation were not needed by me. I didn't want to take the time to configure nor did I want to take the time to turn off the firewall. I did not have to de-activate the firewall (it's off by default). For me, the product was plug-and-play.
Summary: If all you want to do is surf the net, ok, this might cut it. But if you want to actually have many tabs open, transfer files around your network, or god forbid torrent some files- AVOID THIS ROUTER. Torrents will eat up the very very little amount of RAM this router has and then it'll crash and burn. You'll have to give it a hard reset to get it back online.
Summary: It was cheaper than replacing the power supply that burned out on my old router. I don't need wireless or the security problems related to running wireless. I run 2 to 3 computers in a home environment on a cable modem.
