Summary: I've been using this for over 2 years and I've found it to be an excellent router. Wireless nearly never drops. I barely have to touch it twice a year. Typical setup is easy. When trying to use more complicated settings like bridging, can take some time and some brain cells. Don't expect to flash it with DD-WRT or anything because it only has 2MB of RAM. Overall, very good router and highly recommended.
Pros: Very consistent, little to low problem router. Bridging is an excellent function.
Cons: Settings can be confusing (playing around can fix some stuff). Bridging can be a P.I.T.A. Hard to flash due to 2mb ram.
Summary: This is a router you would need if you have a small budget and need something to get you by. I had earned this router through Surveys. Trust me, a few survey sites are worth it.
Pros: Works just great. =) Easy to set up when you take it out of the box. (Apprx. Time: 3-5 minutes) Needed something like this to keep my Xbox connected to Live and something to make the family computer run just a little bit better.
Summary: Only question now is how long the router will last. I unplug the power at night and when it will not be used for over an hour. It powers on and reconnects by the time I get to a computer. This thing just works.
Pros: Update to my Original review. Through process of elimination, I find that this is actual an all around excellent router, both components, the wireless and the wired router. The slow down (and dropped connections) were caused by Linux community's driver for my Thinkpad Edge laptop running Ubuntu Linux 10.10 64-bit. In the same laptop, there are no problems using the TP-Link router under Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit. There is no problem with connection or speed using t...
Cons: Minor Con: Router gets warmer that I like but I was able to easily correct this by simply attaching two rubber "feet" to the bottom, adding about 1/4th inch space between the router and the hutch surface it rests on. This isn't a particular WR340g issue. Every router I've owned needed "feet". Not really a con - the router is so light cables pull it. I solved this by placing a small paper weight on it.
Summary: I like the fact that my son is happy now that he gets to go online with his x-box. Thats pretty much what it was purchased for. Also it ties in our inter- net phone provider, our internet provider, and oh yea also our new printer. so all in all it way a great purchase and I LOVE IT!!!!
Summary: If this company keeps producing this kind of quality, they might just threaten Cisco's networking reign (BTW, I happen to love cisco/linksys, I just find it amazing that a budget router is so stable that it can be compared to professional equipment.
Pros: I have owned this router for more than a year now, and I must say that I am extremely impressed. It was very simple to set up (browser based), and has been running with my old linksys modem for over a year now. IT HAS NEVER CRASHED! I have never needed to reboot my router, it has always worked. I work in IT and I have not even had that kind of performance with high-end cisco equipment. OUTSTANDING!
Cons: If you do not know how to set up a router using your browser, you might find this router a little tricky to configure (since there is no CD wizard, most of those are junk by the way, you should really set up your router through your browser). It's easier than you might think on the surface, just follow the directions in the manual.
Cons: I bought this after one of the reviews said it worked great as a wireless bridge. It doesn't support any encryption other than WEP when in wireless bridge mode. I updated to the most recent version of the firmware when I discovered this, but it didn't change. Avoid this product if you're running WPA/WPA2 and need a wireless bridge. I ended up ordering a WRT54GL like I probably should have in the first place.
