Slow

Kevin H., Newegg
8 January 2015
  • Pros: Easy web interface.
  • 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.

Good, but it limits your speed

Kevin K., Newegg
7 January 2015
  • Pros: This device has a clean, simple interface. It gives you good basic information. The port forwarding function works well and is very intuitive.
  • Cons: I ran several tests with and without this unit and it consistently slowed my connection by at least 15 Mbps.

Works great for me

  • 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

Easy install, great product

Jim V., Newegg
22 October 2014
  • 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).

Works for my needs flawlessly.

Paul M, Amazon
5 October 2014
  • 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.

Serious throughput issues

Scott Jones, Amazon
27 September 2014
  • 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.

Severely cut down on internet traffic. Cut the download ...

Brian Thorn, Amazon
8 September 2014
  • Summary: Severely cut down on internet traffic. Cut the download speeds by 90%, went from 50 mbps down to less than 5. Totally unacceptable in this day for a router.. get what you pay for I guess.

A gem! Finally a solution!

sherm2earth, Amazon
11 July 2014
  • 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.
