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.
Summary: For the money this is a superb little router, really easy to setup. I had this configured as a second router in my house on the end of a homeplug network extender (also TP-Link by the way) in about 5 minutes. It is a real swiss army knife device, and for circa £20 a complete bargain. Highly recommended.
Summary: I liked the idea of this box and indeed it does do a lot. I had trouble setting up initially and nothing would work until I changed my my router to only be on one security protocol not 2. Works great now as a client for my TV.
Works well unlike the Edimax EW-7228APN I initailly bought
7 June 2012
Summary: This was bought as a replacement for a Edimax EW-7228APN which did not work correctly as both a wireless access point and router. The TP-Link TL-WR743ND on the other hand worked flawlessly with easy to understand instructions. I use this to extend my wired network to a part of the house that does not get a good wireless signal from the main ADSL router.
Summary: First as someone else has said you will probably need to upgrade the firmware when you receive the unit to provide all 5 options and bring it in line with the latest User Guide. I hit various problems trying to have a reliable connection when used as a Repeater; examples include wireless connectivity but no Internet access. One of several PCs refused to wirelessly connect for more than few seconds and so on.
Summary: It was not an unknown product for me, so it was not a surprise, that the TP-Link TL-WR743ND wireless router works in accordance with its description. It can share wired or wireless broadband internet and connect clients either on cable or WiFi. Configuration is easy through its built in WEB server. And in addition there is a very good price tag on it.
Summary: I connect this router to my NAS through a cable for wireless access to the NAS from my laptop, while running as client router to access internet through main AP provided by my landlord to all tenants in the building. This setup works perfetly. Originally there are three wireless mode to choose from.
