Summary: The WiFi on my BT Home Hub 3 (BT Infinity) was dying 3 or 4 times a day and I was getting tired of having to restart it, so I bought this router as a replacement as I've been happy with TP-Link products in the past. First impression: it's big. I didn't look at the dimensions in the spec before I ordered, so I was surprised when it turned out to be about 50% bigger than I had imagined in my mind's eye.
Summary: It's good at most of what it does. The UI is a little dated but adequate. The only reason I've given it 4 stars instead of 5 is that it doesn't support dual-stack PPP. That is it can't share a single PPP session between both IPv4 and IPv6. This makes it incompatible with any ISP that use BT's WB(M)C product (21st CN ADSL and FTTC). It might still work with Sky or TalkTalk but I have my doubts.
Summary: I had my first one of these and it failed about 6 months after purchase, but i called TP Link and they did a few tests whilst i was on the phone. Said it must have died. Phoned amazon. They replaced it within a few days and now all good again. Great router. Fast and quite good coverage. We are in a cottage with 1 foot thick stone walls and still works outside to a distance when in the garden.
Summary: Had trouble initially setting up the router and had problems with gaining wireless coverage. However, realised that I made a mistake with the router's own internal settings (namely disabling SSID which doesn't seem to be worth it!). But troubles aside, I actually consider this to be a very, very good router. I paid about £60 for it and I am glad I made the plunge.
Summary: Best thing i liked about WDR3600 is its gigabit ports and every easy upgrade to dd wrt. Asus N-16 might have better ram but this device beats everyone in its class and price point. Highly recommended.
Summary: I got this as some time this year I expect to upgrade to an optical modem which will replace my ASDL modem. At present it is connected to my Zoom X6 ASDL modem. This has all of the features that I was looking for, 4 port Giga bit LAN and 2.5GHz mode G,N wireless and a whole host more which at present I have not used but will be usefull later. At present I have turned off the 5GHz N mode wireless as I do not have any thing to use it.
Good. Great set of features for the price. Wifi a bit weak.

Summary: Really good range of features for a bargain price, as with many TP-Link products. The quality is perhaps not quite up to the standards of the best but this performs very acceptably and does all most people could ask of it. The wifi range didn't seem as good as a Netgear DGND3700, though, oddly for something with big antennae.
Summary: First of all, if you're buying this router before the end of 2012, you can claim a free dual band wifi adapter when submitting a copy of your amazon invoice. See the tp-link website for details. So this router. It has a lot of features for a rather keen price. That's why I bought it. I haven't used the USB media/print server, so I won't mention it any further. This review is based solely on someone who lives in a household with a lot of wired and wireless gadgets...
