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. You get the internet speeds your paying for. Highly recommended. V2 R600VPN with the latest firmware updates downloaded from Tp-Link is rock solid. Love it!
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. TP-Link has won me over, and I purchased 4 TP-Link Switches because this router has functioned so well. These are running my home office (5 computers simultaneous - 24 hours a day).
Summary: I'm a home user and I needed a wired router to sit inside our homes communication panel. I installed and configured this router in minutes. Getting 102Mbps from Time Warner and I've pretty much just set it and forget it with this thing. I don't use too many features, but I do use port forwarding and dynamic DNS and both work perfectly. My Wireless router, set as a simple wireless access point works well with this router too. It's been two months and I have no complaints.
Summary: If you need a gigabit wired connection then this one is enough. Upgrade the firmware before you run it. If you have existing wireless N router just connect it to this unit and its good to go. Superb speed..
Great product for the price, but in 2014 go with TL-ER6120 or TL-ER604W!

Summary: At the time I purchased this VPN router it was the only one they were selling. They have since come out with a wireless version (TL-ER604W) of this as well. I bought my friend the wireless version of this VPN Router to replace his current home setup. The wireless version comes with a boat load of networking features not available on the TL-R600VPN.
Summary: The market is thin for wired routers these days but this one is cheap and works. Biggest annoyance is the address reservation interface us not as slick as others but t works. Very rarely if ever locks up with current firmware.

Summary: I replaced a 2004-vintage Netgear router (that is still sold) with this. Doing so increased my measurable internet speed from ~10mps to about ~40mps. More importantly, the connection became more stable. Both of these facts greatly surprised me, but I carefully documented speeds using each of two routers. This one is fast. It also has somewhat more options for screening out attacks, logging & user controls.
