(The other two routers in my house work fine, so I know it's not an ISP problem

Summary: This review subject to change, but after 3 days of ownership I still cannot get it connected to the Internet. My computers can see each other on the LAN but have no Internet access. I contacted TP-LINK tech support at their web page.
Summary: It is a nice little router with very good through put. I felt that it was a good buy for the specifications compared to Cisco. I was able to set it up fine and connect to the internet with no problems however the AT&T microcell that had worked fine with my previous Linksys router started to flake...
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.
