Excerpt: Made cable connection from modem to tp link, then second cable to laptop for a pass through connection, but your PC or laptop recognizes it. Waited a minute, turned on laptop, inserted tp link cd and followed clear instructions. Then turned on tablet, no hitches. I'm not an expert so I'll give four stars.
Summary: Like I said, this gets 4 eggs because of how it works once paired with DD-WRT. If you don't plan on installing the firmware, I would stay away from this router as the factory firmware is sketchy at best.
Pros: PLEASE NOTE: These pros only come after installing DD-WRT firmware on the router. Once that's installed, it's an excellent router for the price with all the features of more expensive units. I've not used it more for just simple router functions, but the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands both work well and I've streamed Netflix on the TV while watching ESPN on my laptop streamed at the same time, with no issues with connection.
Cons: Not the best router with stock firmware. Worked fine for a week, then no device could keep a solid connection on any band. I could switch bands on devices that could use 2.4GHz and 5GHz which would get it to working for about 5 minutes, then it would die again. Restarting the router had no discernable effect. Really bad experience on stock firmware.
Pros: I purchased this router as a replacement for a Buffalo which was marketed as providing better wireless range but lacked gigabit ethernet and 5 GHz coverage. Factor in the excellent price and I was excited to get my hands on the WDR3600.
Cons: I had some issues with the WD TV Live players getting confused with WPA vs WPA2 when the router was in Auto mode for WiFi security. I ended up setting the router to WPA2 to resolve the issue.
Excerpt: Easy to set up, easy to use. Wish the radio signal was more stable but it seems fine in our house. Little weak outside where my last router was stronger. I heard DD-WRT will fix that but I bought this router for the USB connectivity but that's not supported with DD-WRT. It doesn't look like anonymous access to the FTP server is supported either so the FTP server through the USB port might not be an option anyways. The throughput is blazing fast though.
Excerpt: Good Looking router and great range. Never used the stock firmware and was flashed to Gargoyle. A lot of available ram and processing power. Excellent stability with Gargoyle firmware. The only con is the rebate still has not arrived yet, and it took almost 2 weeks to be delivered to me.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast Connection Speed, Reliable connection
Summary: This router is of a nice design and easy to set up on my talk talk fiber optic internet easy to nav the router settings page and make changes if you have to but it it set up in min just plug it all in the same way as my talk talk router and in no time i was on the internet fast and easy to use but you may have to make a few changes just to make sure all is good
Summary: For the price this is a great router, easy to set up and fast, I really like that it is dual band. My main issue is that when plugging in a hard drive it tries to set it up as a media server rather than just as a hard drive on the network so you can't access folders, it just lumps all the files together using Windows Media Player.
Summary: I purchased this not to long ago, back in the fall or early winter it worked great, for awhile but now in the first part of march I went to use the tablet and no web connection I reset it, I did everything to make sure it would work and nothing it was to go to the great router graveyard , .this was not overloaded abused or anything it just died.
