TP_Link TL_R600VPN Gigabit router: unstable, requires frequent reboots to make Internet connection, unreliable, NOT RECOMMENDED!

just being Frank "amazon junkie", Amazon
8 February 2015
  • Summary: Router refuses to maintain (or establish) any reliable or stable connection on the WAN side. Have upgraded the firmware to the latest due to "stability problems", but to no avail. Have needed to reboot the router anywhere from 5 minutes to 5 hours after getting a connection, and though it is configured identically to 2 other working routers, it will make a connection, then drop it after a moment or after several hours, but it WILL drop the connection; sometimes...

wait for next firmware update

synapse2, Amazon
21 December 2014
  • 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. confuses the heck out of windows clients. Router sends both local port and wan port mac arps randomly so once the windows clients get the right arp mac all work, else they intermittently drop connection.

DO NOT BUT IF YOU HAVE A GIGABIT INTERNET CONNECTION

John Chapman "John", Amazon
10 December 2014
  • Summary: Do not buy this router if you have a Gigabit internet connection. It may have a Gigabit WAN port but the NAT through put maxes out around 280 Mbps. Cut my internet speed by almost 75%.

Unstable WAN connection

Rozebud, Amazon
26 September 2014
  • Summary: I did my research and assumed that the instability problems with this product were related to having the latest firmware. Boy was I wrong. I upgraded to the Aug '14 release, configured the device and put it in service. It worked for about 5 min (no embellishment or joking). The connection to the Internet was unstable. It would be good for a few minutes and then horrible for a few minutes. I found that the problem was in how it was handling the WAN connection to my ISP.

Waste of money

justin davis, Amazon
24 July 2014
  • Summary: I bought 2 of these back in January and I was less than impressed. They claim they can support ipsec but it does not fully support it. It can connect to an existing ipsec tunnel it can not host one. So i returned the second one almost days later. After that I thought the one i kept was worth the investment and was working alright. But recently it requires me to reboot it almost daily otherwise it losses connection to things like xbox live or netflix.

This 1 is Useless!

Douglas R., Newegg
21 December 2013
  • Pros: Exterior case is nice. Access interface is fine.
  • Cons: Will not connect to Service Provider. Replace a very low cost Trend Net Router and 100GB switch with this unit to gain the GB speed and have everything in one package. While the router seems to recognize the service provider, it never once obtained a connection. Unplug / re-plug / resets all with no result. Service provider confirms they do not receive a request although the 600VPN tells me it is trying to do so. The older router went back in place - BANG! Full connec...

Business Grade Product......Fooled you!!! Let the nightmare begin

OPT, Amazon
31 May 2013
  • Summary: When I read the specs on this product I was really excited. VPN capability, multiple channels, Gigabit ports, I thought we hit the jackpot for a Business Grade moderate traffic endpoint that would perfectly complement our external Gigabit switches yet was economically priced! Let the nightmare begin!

Real Slowwww

Anonymous, Newegg
15 February 2013
  • Summary: Spend a little more. This one is not ready for prime time. I even updated the firmware with no change. I have been doing this since 78.
  • 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.
