  • Summary: The TP-Link is an incredible deal, solid performance, has a lot of features for a product in this price range. The USB port with print server/NAS functionality is fantastic, however requires drivers on the PC to operate. The dual antennas give it good range. The installation was quite easy, even without the CD. I originally received a defective unit, which I had to exchange, hopefully it is limited to just that unit instead of batches.
  • Pros: Solid, Inexpensive, Feature packed, Easy setup, decent range
  • Cons: Limited software functions, print server software required on pc

Unstable

  • Pros: gigabit speed, features
  • Cons: Freezes constantly. Admin console dying is the first sign of trouble. Only way out is to power cycle the router.

  • Pros: a) It looks nice.
  • Cons: This is a router with bad quality. Its WAN port is in unstable state, making this router could only connect to internet sporadically.

Can't Use everything

Henry V., Newegg
28 December 2012
  • Pros: "Supposed" to have a functional usb and high speed transfer. Pretty easy to set up as well.
  • Cons: If you have a usb plugged in, it will sometimes freeze up on you even if you have the latest firmware. The only way you can fix it is to reboot the router. This does not happen when you dont have anything stuck in the usb. The tech never helped out.

Wireless Conked Out

Christopher L., Newegg
14 November 2012
  • Pros: Configured as an access point and gigabit switch. Worked fine for the first month. While the wireless is now disabled, the gigabit ports work.
  • Cons: Started dropping wireless connections and refusing new connections over the last few months. Tried changing WiFi channels and upgrading the firmware, though the only thing that would make the WiFi behave itself was rebooting the wireless radio.

No joy in Mudville.

Gene S., Newegg
11 November 2012
  • Pros: Didn't burst into flame.
  • Cons: Started locking up within hours of turning on. Firmware update only decreased lockups to 2x a day from 6-8x a day. Admin console unavailable is first sign of lockups - which also means no troubleshooting since there's no provision for a syslog server.

Worst router in my life.

Andrey I., Newegg
9 August 2012
  • Pros: None.
  • Cons: I'm very disappointed. It simply doesn't work. It keeps rebooting every hour or so. Management interface (http://192.168.0.1) goes down very often. Every time I wan to manage it I have to reset it. I sent this router back.
