Not Bad

Brock N., Newegg
21 January 2014
  • Pros: Never had a lock up on this device. The initial firmware version has some port mapping limitations, but subsequent updates by the vendor has resolved it, so I am happy. It is very fast and has decent options. The built in power supply and decent metal case is a nice departure from the wall of wall warts.
  • Cons: None so far.

Solid Stable

Mr. T., Newegg
3 December 2013
  • Pros: I have been using this for ~8 months now with no issues at all. I have never had to reboot. Has a nice sturdy metal case with built in power supply. Appears well made.
  • Cons: None, possibly VPN throughput but that is only theoretical since I have never used that feature

Straightforward and robust functionality in a durable package

jacob s., Newegg
15 August 2013
  • Pros: I love that this has a metal chassis with no frills. I'm coming away from standard consumer routers that are poorly constructed and don't hold up. I used to rely on the well-regarded Lynksys WRT54G, but after a move I switched to a readily available E2500, which last just two months past the warranty period, until the WAN port itself failed under normal use, and burnt out a chip elsewhere. I'm loving the thought that TP-Link put into the construction of this router an...
  • Cons: No real issues, see my other thoughts.

Been pretty good!

Chad W., Newegg
13 March 2013
  • Pros: Small, to the point, Built in power supply (HUGE PLUS!) Fast, and runs cool.... Oh, and it's METAL!
  • Cons: Only con is that it uses port 25 to email logs. Well, nobody really allows that anymore. Being able to change the SMTP port would be sweet. I have tried every syntax after the SMTP server to try it too.

Real Slowwww

Anonymous, Newegg
15 February 2013
  • Pros: Looks nice. (have to say something nice about it)
  • Cons: The best speed I can get is .25Mbps Yes that is a .25 My old 56k dial-up is almost as fast as this router. I put my old netgear back. And I get 17Mbps out of a plan max of 20Mbps.

  • Pros: For the price you can't beat this little router.
  • Cons: The interface could use some tweaking although it's very simple and easy to figure out.

Must Reset Once a Week

Oscar L., Newegg
31 August 2012
  • Summary: - Short 14-character limit for user name and password (for accessing administration). (In the security world, 14 characters is a joke.
  • Pros: - Fairly simple and organize administrator interface. (Similar in rating to other brands; nothing really special.)
  • Cons: - Poor stability; must reset once a week or you will not be able to access Internet.

Stability Issues

James D., Newegg
30 May 2012
  • Summary: IPSec VPN using anything higher than 3DES had stability problems where the connection would be dropped nearly every 1-2 hours, this was with 4 clients using RDP on low settings, not much more than 10K/s per client
  • Pros: Easy to configure, auto-detect SEEMS to work for WAN address type
  • Cons: DNS changes don't seem to take effect at all, regardless of what i changed it to, it still took the DNS initially given by the ISP, multiple resets and configuration changes had no effect.
