Excerpt: Very easy to install and notice a big improvement in speed from my old router. It's range extends through several walls and rooms to the third level of my town house. One thing I would recommend is to upgrade to the latest firmware before you even try to set up all your connections.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast, Fast Connection Speed, Reliable connection
Summary: Great signal...when it works. I don't think I have had this router for a month and I'm already having to reboot it at least once a day to get it to maintain a steady signal. I bought this as a dual band device but the 2.4 is almost unusable with the connection dropping randomly even a few feet from...
Summary: Thought it would do better than my 8 year old Linksys and by reading all the reviews and comparing specs, I thought this would be a fine replacement for my Linksys. I've tried to do everything I can such as updating firmware, using only one WPS, and resetting the signal from my ISP.
Solid router, good feature set, but details overlooked.

Summary: I live and test this device in an area with high 2.4 GHz congestion, with no less than 13 access points in range and/or overlapping my network. There are only 1-2 in the 5 GHz range.
Pros: I like this router because it performs well in the 5 GHz band seeing excellent throughput to devices such as notebooks, gaming consoles, phone, and tablets. The USB functions are nice allowing setup of consumer printers and storage devices to function similarly to professional grade printers and ...
Cons: The 2.4 GHz band performs well but seems to lack robustness in congested areas. Higher priced routers appear to perform better in this area cutting through the noise, but altogether this router doesn't underperform for the price point. The setup processed is advertised as easy, quick, and hassle ...
Summary: I had a Netgear N600 and it was junk. I have worked in IT for 18 years, and I could not get port forwarding to work, it would work and then quit for no reason. Bought this, put it in and had everything setup in 15 minutes. You do not have to have IT skills to set it up.
A bang for the buck, price/performance champion. Good performance. Great value.

Summary: The TP-LINK TL-WDR4300 Wireless N750 Dual Band Router has been a great wireless router for my home network uses. Although some people have criticized its size/footprint, I rather like the router's size and styling.
Summary: I cannot fathom how a router can drop connections so regularly and still be released to market. This is on both the 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz channels. I used to think it was something else, maybe my ISP, but after swapping out to an old WRT-54G I get a better and more stable connection.
Summary: Great deal for the money with some configuration.
Pros: This is a good router out of the box, not great but good. Install DD-WRT firmware on it though and it becomes great, true GB LAN, much greater bandwidth and range on both wireless networks and fantastic throughput. I run 12-15 devices at once usually and have no problems.
Cons: the TP-Link software is the weak point here. I only ever got 800 mb/s with it on the LAN and needed to reset the router weekly. DD-WRT fixed these issues.
