Excerpt: When we reviewed the first generation TL-WR1043ND back in 2010 we gave it a Silver Award. It would become one of the most popular TP-Link routers, perhaps even the most popular one. It was very affordable and packed a lot of power, including gigabit network ports, and you could install dd-wrt and other open source firmware on it. It made the TL-WR1043ND very popular among the real router enthusiasts who enjoy managing every single aspect of their home network.
Conclusion: Looking at these results we have got we can say that we have a fairly good router on our hands. We were able to walk around the whole apartment without any dissconnections like our older D-link had issues with, we were even able to stand behind 2 brick walls in the corner of the apartment and still got a good connection with acceptable transfer speeds.
TP-LINK TL-WR1043ND Wireless N Gigabit Router Review
3 August 2011
TP-LINK’s TL-WR1043ND may not be the first router the girls look at, and probably won’t take first in every race. However, it is a serious contender on all levels. It provides a fast and stable connection to all connected devices, an attractive admin interface with plenty of features, and the ability to install DD-WRT without jumping through hoops. Besides the TL-WR1043ND’s list of features, it only costs
$53.99 at my favorite retailer
Pros: • Fast and stable connection to all devices, • Great feature set and performance from stock firmware, • DDWRT is fully supported, • Super affordable
Excerpt: TP-Link, a manufacturer of all network resources, has sent us their Ultimate Wireless N Gigabit Router (Model TL-WR1043ND). This router represents TP-Links’ ‘Top of the line’ wireless routers. This router boasts 300mbps LAN transfer speeds, 3 antennae for more range and stability than you can shake a stick at, a USB port for network storage, and Quick Secure Setup (QSS) technology for easy wireless connections.
Conclusion: Overall, this is a decent router. No special frills that make it stand out from the crowd, but usually in router-terms that means bloatware being dumped onto your system to allow for ‘streaming’ etc, that could be achieved perfectly without it in capable hands, or with a guide at hand.
Summary: Пример TP-LINK TL-WR1043ND лишний раз демонстрирует, что сосредоточение усилий производителя на одной задаче (в данном случае — предложить потребителю наиболее эффективный однодиапазонный маршрутизатор) ведет к безусловному успеху. Пусть приятный молочно-белый корпус устройства венчают не слишком эстетичные антенны, оно отлично спроектировано и оснащено самой необходимой для организации домашней/офисной ЛВС функциональностью.
Pros: Отличная производительность в сложных условиях, разумная цена, множество настроек.
Cons: Не самый дружественный интерфейс, однодиапазонное решение.
