Cons: Chokes my internet service. I have 100mbps download, and even with the firewall turned off the download speed dropped to under 50mb once this router was put in place. I sent an email to TP-Link support and got no response. I will be returning this device.
Excerpt: I've been using this router for three years now. It was far less expensive then any of the big name routers and works just as well. The user interface is simple, easy to understand, and most importantly you don't get lost in a maze of menus and submenus
Summary: I wasted a ton of time on a Ubiquiti EdgeRouter that was 6 times more expensive than this, and turned out to be DOA. The TP-Link was SO EASY to install, got me up and running quickly, and solved my slow internet problem (speedtest is 25 times faster than the results with my previous D-link router).
Pros: Easy Install, decent quickstart guide, solved my slow internet problem. Pairs well with Ubiquiti Unifi Access Points for a fast and reliable solution in this old house.
Cons: Customer support touts 24/7, but I was unable to get thru. Their terrible setup requires that you press a key every 15 seconds or so, or they disconnect you. So I sent them an email and they haven't yet responded (over 24 hours ago).
Summary: Ok, I don't have blistering fast speeds here, so plan accordingly. During a lightning storm, my cable modem and WAN port on my trusty Linksys router got taken out. Being it was a weekend, I got whatever I could find to replace it at the store.
Summary: I purchased this router due to the favorable reviews and pricing. We needed a simple router to replace our dead Asus RT-N66U router as we purchased a high range access point to use and no longer needed wireless functionality in our router.
Summary: I live on a ranch with microwave Internet access. I have my own outdoor wifi. I tried 3 popular brand routers they were unstable and I had to reboot them every 3-5 days. Root cause appeared to me to be the ISP DHCP changes or the outdoor wifi confusing the LAN NAT.
