Summary: I bought this router with the specific aim to run Dd-wrt firmware. The router has plenty of Ram so is more than capable of running dd-wrt and other services such as usb sharing, ddns etc. the wifi range is a little dissapointing but hasnt prevented me from running a couple of wifi connected pcs although the link speed is a little slower than i would have liked.
Great DSL router when running Openwrt, features galore!

Summary: Its a shame you cant operate the dual band at the same time, this would be a killer feature. Very stable router with Openwrt firmware and adds so much more features - openvpn server, samba server etc. 3 year warranty is great!
Very fast sand beats virgin hub even through 2 floors

Summary: Bought this to replace an old g router that was only giving me 20Mb and daily needing rebooted. I have put it in the attic and now getting as fast as my iPhone5 and ipad can access the internet. My laptop could only get 40 Mb with the virgin router in the same room but with this I get over 60 on my virgin 60Mb link from the ground floor. I use it as a wireless access point with the dhcp switched off and the cat cable from the virgin hub connected to one of the LAN ports.
Summary: The description of this item makes it sound ideal for networked printers, game consoles and harddrives. Unfortunately, my wireless printers and games consoles cannot connect, and my harddrive is inaccessible when connected to the router. After trawling through forums and contacting tech support, I have learnt that the router isn't compatible with much. Whilst the high speed and range of the router are nice, they're pretty useless when I can't connect to it.
Summary: This is an 802.11n router with some proprietary extensions that will only work with corresponding TP-Link network adapters. Without these all you'll get is 155 mbit, although that's good enough for most stuff. Other than that a simple to set up router. I'm using it with BT Infinity VDSL and it works well.
