Summary: It worked very well in the first month. After about a month, it started to give problem with wireless signal and connection keeps dropping. Disconnection became more and more frequent until it reached to unusable state (3 seconds connected, drop, get connected again for 3 seconds, drop). Upgrading firmware didn't solve the problem. Tried installing OpenWrt and still not working. My conclusion is hardware issue.
Summary: I brought this device from TP-LINK agent in Amman-Jordan with a price around 175 USD which is double of the price announced at Amazon because they can't ship to my country. I originally think about buying TL-WR1043ND Ultimate Wireless N Gigabit Router , But the agent tell me that it's more better for my needs (NAS) USB storage. After 1 month of use I regret my decision for the followings : 1. The internet keeps disconnecting while using the USB. 2.
Summary: Pain in the ass. Nightmare trying to get OpenWrt installed and ended up bricking the router. Recovery process is fairly technical and involves soldering a port on to the router to attach the serial port and TFTP to wipe the router and flash it again. I would go with a router that supports a basic hardware reset.
Summary: This is one of the worst modem routers I have ever owned. It was highly unstable and very unreliable. An attempt to perform the tricky upgrading of firmware final saw it give up the ghost - much to my relief because it forced my hand to buy a better product which has never let me down.
Summary: This would be an excellent wifi router if only it worked ALL the time but it drops out a lot, sometimes twice a day or more. When it doesn't, for a week or two it has very good range and speed. Out of four wifi routers I have had 3 of them do or did the dropping out thing, one didn't so it's not the satellite modem or the laptop, tablets or kindles. Major Tom don't take this one.
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: I bought this one to replace a BT Homehub2. I wouldn't agree that it looks ugly - I really like the look because it is like Sputnik. It was installed correctly and then the problems started. The wireless is not reliable at all and has no power. In 3 meters from the router it was giving 3/5 lines signal. I have play with the channels in case there was a problem there but it kept having problems.I have try 3 different laptops all with the same problem.
