Summary: This router is NOT Linux compatible as stated. Everything works fine on Linux except the Print Server function which is non-existent. There are forum posts about this issue across the web. It's Tp-link's fault and they are making a false claim. Note that the information on the Dabs.com website is not FROM their website and they do not endorse or take responsibility for the erroneous claim. If you don't want a print server, then this router works fine.
Summary: Good router and easy to install. Range is not very great and does not go beyond one room. I am not sure if using high range antenna would help but then with stock antenna it does not serve purpose for a large house.
The physical hookup was easy but then the problem started

Summary: This arrived in a rather large box and I was surprised to find that the only thing inside was this router. I read the directions and started to hook it up at 3:00 PM. The physical hookup was easy but then the problem started. I could not get it to work properly even when hooked directly by ethernet cable. I then called the Support number and was greeted by a pleasant lady who spoke Chinese much better than she spoke English.

Summary: The wireless really only works when you choose one of the bandwidths. When you have both on, the wireless "fails" and disconnects, requiring a reset. I suppose for the price, it is OK, but it should not have this dual function since it is not really a feature you can use.

Summary: Perfect installation and configuration using the admin page (not the CD). Disappointed by output power (range). My other 5 year old 30$ router appears to have a much stronger signal (albeit slower), my devices keep switching to the old router because the signal is stronger.
Summary: Well, its been three weeks with this outer and here are my observations in point form: - Wired performance is solid, but that's not why I bought a wireless router... - Wireless performance in mixed mode is extremely flaky (periodic, seemingly random connection drops) - Signal strength is more than enough for my needs but I can't seem to figure out how to get 300MBs on any of my wireless devices (with N-enabled nics)...
Excerpt: Нет желания возиться с неофициальными прошивками, официальная в целом не плоха, если бы еще она нормально работала... Встроенный медиасервер 80% видео не воспроизводит на TV Samsung, хотя медиасервер Windows справляется с этим легко. К подключенной по USB флешке на Windows 8 достучаться стандартным способом не удается. При подключенном Интернете синхронизация времени по NTP не работает (ругается на отсутствие Интернета).
Pros: Двухдиапазонность USB Гигабитность Цена
Cons: Ужасный медиасервер Так и не получилось настроить синхронизацию времени по NTP USB 2.0 Приложение для управления роутером под Android не работает
