Summary: I will leave an update if the router will loose its wireless power, that happens with many late models of wireless routers, including LinkSys, D-Links and Microtiks. The router TP-Link 2543 was easy to install. You do not need, actually, the disk.
Summary: Item arrived late but that does not detract from the functioning of the item.This was purchased for a friend of mine who it has to be said a techno noob. This was ordered with collection from amazon locker(very impressed,his words not mine although i do agree).He collected the item and i was unable...
Not bad at all, esp. on offer. Beware Open/DD-WRT config, and dont expect too much from the USB.

Summary: Not a particularly pretty box, if that's relevant to you - I don't give two s**ts personally. Works fine with the TP-Link firmware, but with very slow USB Samba support and not many other options, and EVERYBODY loves more options. So I immediately installed Open-WRT instead.
Summary: Had to replace my old faithful Dlink 615 after five years of very stable service so what to choose? I did have a dlink 655 as a spare so I used that for a full day when it died or committed suicide.
Summary: A lot more thought could have been put into designing this thing. I know that aesthetics are hardly that important but there are some beautiful, elegant routers out there and you might feel a bit dumb choosing one the old boiler when you could have the beauty queen.
Summary: This is a very capable router for the price and the throughput was above average. If you have a cable connection then this is a good choice if on a budget. Persoanlly think it is on par with most £100 routers on the market such as Netgear and Cisco Consumer(LinkSys).
Summary: I know very little about technology compared to the other reviewers. The router was very easy to set up and it's worked perfectly. From opening the box to up and running took less than 10 minutes and was very straightforward. The biggest fault, as mentioned by someone else is the design.
Summary: TP Link TL-WR2543ND 450Mbps Dual-Band Wireless N Gigabit Router - Initially bought the router for bridging but as my original sky Netgear modem router does not support bridging I had to improvise.
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.
