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.
