Summary: This router is truely plug-n-play. Easy to set up, easy to use. Because it's onboard RAM is only 8MB, it won't support a lot of advanced features. I tried to bridge two of these as a router, however, the program failed.
Terrific for the price... a little more delicate than some physically

Summary: First, I paid $25 for this thing, and even in the era of "n"-speed wireless (this being "g"-speed), that's still much less than what most competitors charge. Having said that, I find the TP-Link competitive with more expensive products.
Summary: I was looking for a range extender and misled myself with the words “extended range”, doh! Haha. So I improvised (instead of sending it back) and used this router as my AP router and then my Linksy as my range extender router (glad it had those capabilities).
Pros: Low price, easy setup, works as it was intended to, small in size, looks kinda cool, holds a stable connection.
Cons: Does not provide extended range beyond what your average router is capable of. I noticed that after about 70+ feet, despite it having 2-3bars of signal, it fails to output my network capability (12MB) and gives me about half the power of my network (6MB) or less, but U wont notice unless you do a...
Summary: For as long as I have had wireless internet, I have never been able to receive any signal in my bedroom. When my old router/modem combo finally kicked the bucket, I was attracted to the "extended range" title of this particular router.
Summary: I bought the TP-LINK eXtended Range Router to replace an aging NetGear WGR614v5 - hoping that this new choice would solve a low signal problem in a room 75 feet and 3 walls away. The TP-LINK seems to have exactly the same range as my old NetGear that didn't bill itself as being anything special as...
Pros: Good, solid product. Does what a router should. Exceptional price for excellent quality.
Cons: The "eXtended Range" doesn't seem any different than my previous experience with "normal" wireless routers.
Summary: My setup has 2 360s that are statically assigned ip addresses. I can only assign 3074 to 1 ip address. It will not except same # with another ip address. As other routers have this ability. I read other reviews about this router getting warm. Yes it gets warm but, what router doesnt?
Pros: Little, has a stand to keep upright. easy to navigate in webpage.
Cons: Uses Vitual Servers instead of Port Forwarding when you want to open ports.
