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

Ted C. Wagner "el tedro", Amazon
19 July 2015
  • 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.

Only 50Mb throughput between LAN and WAN.

C. Li "Chen", Amazon
1 June 2015
  • 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: 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.

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).

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.

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.
