Summary: This product is fine as a wireless router, but I bought it specifically because it says it can powered POE. Well that is only semi true. It can be powered by the POE injector provided with it, it did not power using a POE switch, which is what I wanted, so I was disappointed with the unit.
Summary: I had correspondence with TP-LINK just to be sure that this unit would satisfy my constraints. They said yes via email. I want to plug my computers into the LAN ports via wired connections using static IP addresses as on my home network. Hotels differ in the way they provide wireless, so I would like this TP-LINK router to work in two possible ways: (1) Wired WAN The hotel provides a hardwire connection, so I just use a cable to connect the hotel source to the WAN port...
Summary: The device works as advertised. I have an office in the basement and I use this to connect to my wireless router on the first floor. The signal strength is pretty good. The only negatives are the instructions were not very clear and the tech support was horrible.
Device is Stable but not without it's Firmware Limitations!

Summary: I am in the process of working with TP-Link right now because of a firmware flaw that affects me from using it in Bridge Mode. It seems that if you turn off DHCP and connect the LAN Side up which already have internet and a DHCP Server on it, that by the time you make it to the bridge device that is bridged to this device, you can only see the LAN and no Internet. This problem is true with Bridge Mode and Universal Repeater Mode. As a client, I have no issues.
Summary: This TP Link job is cheap as chips, but has a performance that belies its price. The only minor down side is that the set-up is slightly more involved than it really needs to be. However, when correctly configured, it works extremely well, and seems to have a rather more powerful RF output than many of its competitors.
Summary: Works great for connecting wired devices - such as TV, games console, PVR to your existing WiFi network ( just choose 'Client' in the quick setup ). Pretty easy to setup although you do need to understand your network enough to choose a spare IP address for it. At 20 quid it's far cheaper than the 'Media Bridge' devices marketed for this purpose.
