Summary: There is no "Repeater" mode on Atheros units, but you still can use it as repeater, just set the original interface as "client" and get it to connect to your AP, then create a virtual interface to broadcast the new SSID.
Summary: First this router is awesome! Great signal, never drops the signal/have to reset it. Second if you're a mac user, the first instructions that come out of the box state that the system requirements are Windows!!! AAAAHH!! The set up disc that comes with this are those mini ones (not mac compatible). Don't worry though, you can get this up and running without it. First ignore all the instructions. Second power on the router.
Summary: I was dreading the installation of this router when I ordered it. My experience with routers has been decidedly negative. Most of the time the instructions are not user-friendly and a person almost needs an advanced degree to put one in and set it up. Not so with this router. I took it out of the box, put the disk in the CD drive, and within a few minutes was up and running. Since then I've had no issues with it so no need to check out tech support.
Summary: I bought this to upgrade from my Netgear router, which I started having numerous issues with. Mostly with streaming video, and using Netflix via the LG TV and Wii console. The router was easy to set up with ALL devices, Windows and Mac, iPad, TV, Wii, etc. The speed is great, the price was perfect. I would HIGLY recommend this router!!
Summary: I am of the older generation. I have trouble changing the clock in me car. I have troble programming my new cell phone. And the worst thing of all for me is anything that involves installing Norton Antivirus on my computer. But I had this thing up and running in 10 minutes flat. If I can do it, anyone can. I can't comment on it's endurance but if I have a problem later I'll update this review but for now it looks dam good.
Summary: I don't generally review products but this one deserves kudos. I had a WiFi G router and it just wasn't doing the job anymore, between Laptops, desktops with no ethernet access, blackberries, and now a new Roku player, we needed a wireless upgrade. As some other users mentioned, I just went with the manual install, no CD. Just go to 192.168.1.1 and you can click Quick Setup.
Summary: I purchased this router to replace my old Linksys WRT54G router. I thought I needed a quicker connection with my desktop, laptop, internet TV and tablet all operating around the household. This router was difficult to set up (but perhaps that is user error and not the router's fault). However, my biggest headache are the recurring daily disconnects that require a reset. It doesn't seem to matter if it is the desktop's wired connection or the wireless.
Summary: This is replacing my old Linksys G router which has been as solid as a rock. Time to jump to N, and I'm glad I did. I was hesitant to stray from the Linksys/Cisco brand because I've had such good luck with it, but the good reviews of the TP-Link and low price made it too hard to resist. I was not disappointed. I have multiple devices on my network at home: 2 laptops (1 MacBook, 1 HP), a Wii, PS3, iPhone, Android and HP Touchpad.
