Summary: Just ignore those negative reviews, this item works perfectly as both a router and an access point. I set up it in 5 minutes at my college dorm, and its signal is strong enough to cover the entire apartment. Very good at 20 bucks. I recommend the router to everyone for daily use. 54Mbps is actually more than enough for regular use, unless you need the router to share files with others.
Summary: Based on the price and previous reviews, I bought this WiFi router. I unpacked the box, plugged in my HughesNet satellite modem to this router, ran the included LAN wire to my PC and ran the set-up disk. 5-minutes later my PS3 recognized the WiFi router and I downloaded an update to the PS3 via WiFi. The PC and the router are 60' feet and three walls away from the PS3...works like a charm. This product is money! Great buy, great price. Easy set up, no problems at all.
Summary: Bought this one recently as I was looking for a reliable 802.11 G router. Its been more than a month now and is working perfectly as a home router should. Its really easy to set up and has excellent connectivity and great download speeds. Very reliable and hasn't given me any problems so far. Is really compact and does not take much wires and space. I sometimes get download speeds as high as 1.5 MBps (as good as a a wired connection).
Summary: I often go by the reviews in Amazon when I purchase - this little router is inexpensive and works perfectly. I've used it in the states and in Central America and it worked there and here. The only glitch, and this might be my lack of knowledge, I can't get to the routers control panel to set up login and password via wireless connection. I asked for 2nd day delivery and that is the only thing that didn't work.
Summary: After 6 yrs of use my old D-Link DI-514 (802.11b) router stopped working since the power adapter failed. The price is so expensive for a replacement power adapter, i thought i would upgrade to G router since my laptops are already equipped with wireless g adapter. After extensive search, i decided to buy this item from TP-Link. I bought this mainly based on reviews posted by other users. I bought this from amazon 5 days ago for $18.
UPDATE - first one died in a month, second one working well

Summary: UPDATE 7/29/11 - That second one is still going strong. I must have gotten a lemon the first time. I am upgrading my review to five stars. UPDATE 3/26/11 - The Netgear router I bought gave me trouble too. It wouldn't allow access to the settings page after I rebooted it. I tried resetting it to factory defaults, and that didn't help.
Summary: I'll keep it short and sweet. I have a PPPeO connection and this router took all of 5 minutes to set up, configure and get online with. It was absolutely effortless. I love this thing and I can't wait to shove it in my brothers $70.00 router buying face.
Summary: I am pleasantly surprised. This was easy to set up and is an extremely quick Wireless G Router. I currently have my desktop and two laptops hooked up at high speed with WPA2 protection. Can't beat it. Seems to go as fast as my former Ethernet connection. Also - get the TP Link USB Adaptor. Great combo. And what an awesome price!
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!!!!
