Summary: As a router it does great, but so did my old router. Bought this router because of the usb ports to connect external HDD to. I can stream from the drive to all the computers but not to the one thing that I bought it for, the TV.
Summary: The original firmware is unstable, I recommend you to either use DD-WRT or OpenWRT. It's so much better. The unit now runs all day every day without any drop connection. The range of 5Gz is weak. I can use it in the same room, but the signal gets really weak when I move to a different room.
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.
dual band 2.4 and 5GHz at the same time, print server install was aargh

Summary: Did not buy trough Amazon. PROS: +both bands simultaneously, +Gigabit WAN, +FTP server, +print server * CONS: print server software installation could be more robust. ** This router obviously has some extra oomph.
