Summary: I work at home, and due to the rotten cabling in my apartment building, neither Time Warner Cable nor Verizon DSL can do better than 80% uptime on any given day, both of them disconnect at random times, for short periods (3-4 minutes) to obscenely long outages (4-5 hours). So they're now both plugged in to this thing, along with two FreedomPop "Burst" 4G modems. Then my Asus RT-AC66U router in Access Point mode plugs in to the dedicated LAN port on the TP-LINK TL-R480T.
Summary: I have 2 DSL line at 10mbs that combined to show 19 on the speed test this has greatly helped and stopped my buffering issues on vudu amazon video streams but does not help with my VPN works just as described easy to set up
You really can't find a better solution for this price!

Summary: I use this to combine 2 Cable Modems and 1 DSL modem and it does the job great. Keep in mind that this does not actually combine the modems but rather allows you to configure rules to direct traffic on your network through each modem seperately or spread out multiple connections across each of your modems.
Good 4 WAN router, easy to setup, limited usage information

Summary: This TP-Link TL-R480T+ is a really affordable 4 WAN router with a dedicated LAN port and Console port (which I'll probably never use). Setting this up was a snap. I recommend if you're load balancing and want to use a download manager to combine the bandwidth of both WAN's to un-check "Enable Application Optimized Routing" under Advanced, Load Balancing, Configuration. Keep in mind you have to have a source that allows multiple connections for this to work.
Summary: For the money, the amount of features are pretty awesome!!! I got this for the access control for the kids, the kids have bed times and I was tired of telling them to turn netflix off at bed time. So I purchased this little puppy, that allowed time & date control and so much more. Granted other brands offer the same features for cheaper, but the piece of mind I have knowing the vendor can't monitor, audit, or control the content the administrator can see, is great for...
Summary: TP-LINK TL-R480T+ 5-port Load Balance Broadband Router, 3 Configurable WAN/LAN ports, 1 LAN, 1 WAN Choosing between internet service providers usually presents a switching problem for consumers. Typically, your whole network has to be on one provider at a time. I have ATT U-verse with 24mbs internet service. Comcast doubled their speeds for some of their services and I can get 50mbs for slightly less than I pay ATT for 24mbs!

Summary: I now have three separate Internet lines to from sky and one from talk talk connected into this route. For this to work I took the standard sky and talk talk routers that they supplied and connect them to the respective phone lines by their filters. Each of these routers the two sky and the talk talk required their subnet IP addresses changed to be unique.
