Summary: Router speed is only about 50Mbits. The router is claimed to be Gibabits. But that only refers to the speed of the hub part (that is speed within the sub network). The max speed between WAN and LAN is only 50Mbits. How did I know? I recently subscribed Comcast 100MBps service.
Summary: I'm moving towards wired installs where high performance is important, because it seems with high performance wireless routers it can be a gamble on whether or not it can deliver the speeds and optimizing the layout of wireless networks in an old house can be difficult.
Summary: I have three TL-R600VPNs now and I'm impressed with the uptime of these little guys. I have yet to have one go down. PTP VPN was a breeze to setup. They have a small footprint which is easy to sit just about anywhere.
Pros: This fast, low drag device is a breeze to setup (if you know what you're doing, that is) and has amazing uptime.
Cons: Setup instructions can be quite lacking, especially for someone who doesn't understand all the features. No option to rack-mount.
Summary: I set this router at my house. It needed a weekly reboot. The DNS would stop working, talked to the support people at tp-link. Sent them traces where the wan port was sending arps with its mac on the internal network with the local internal network ip address.
Summary: I just received this router, and I have to say I am quite impressed. In the past, I've been using two Cisco/Linksys WRVS4400N Routers to connect two sites together via VPN secure tunnel. The old Cisco Routers always give me issues, and always require a power cycle to work.
Summary: Fantastic VPN router! This is one of the most robust yet easy to configure routers I have ever used. Many years spent with slow, buggy Linksys routers. The value and features can't be beat on this one. This was unboxed and set up within 15 minutes. It's also very fast, no slowdowns.
Summary: Tough outer shell, and easily can run numerous connections at 1Gib Up and Down. I have mine mounted on the wall vertically to save space. Easy admin interface, and a quality power supply. I have actually bought two of these, as I've been that impressed.
