Summary: one of the simplest computer items I’ve ever installed. Less than ten minutes (and that was taking my time) for complete setup, config and update. Works seamlessly with XP based PC and Laptop. Still has plenty of extra ports for web enabled TV, Games systems or other uses. All without the hassles and frequent drops of a wireless system. Wish I’d gone the “wired” route first.
Summary: Easy to connect straight out of the box. Initially, it would not recognise my internet connection, this was due to an IP conflict with my BT Infinity box. Called the TP helpline who advised me how to fix the issue. All up and running within 5 minutes.
Summary: I was very skeptical about buying this, in part because of its price. I was also very frustrated having gone through two Netgear FVS318s each with the same intermittent problem of dropping its internet connection. Further investigation on the internet revealed that the problem with the FVS318 is a known problem, and has been for many years. Why a manufacturer can't deal with such a reputation and feedback escapes me. Coming back to this TL-R860, installation was a dream.
Summary: I have never written a product review before, but I am so blown away by how good this produuct is. I am not very technical, but due to the history of my bits of kit I knew that I need to be able to configure the device - to set it to a specific IP address and to enable devices connecting to it to have a specific rnage of IP addresses.
Summary: Works out of the box, what more can I say Turn everything off then plug into the back of my cable modem and plug into my first pc and hey presto Nice options, does everything you could want for a small setup
Summary: I bought this to use at a trade show to hook up 7 machines and it works a treat. Small and unobtrusive, with no configuration required. This works perfectly, handling plenty of network traffic and WAN connection at a great price.
Summary: I was nervous about buying this product (TP-Link TL-R860) because the price was incredible for the spec, and because another reviewer reported (incorrectly) that it did not support TCPIP. However, I specifically wanted 8 physical ethernet ports on a DHCP router, and the cheapest alternatives on the market ( with 8 physical ports ) were over £100, so I decided to risk it. Great decision. It is very compact despite having 8 ports. TCPIP is supported just fine.
