Very Unreliable

  • Excerpt: Easy set-up....but shortly after installing I noticed that download speeds would periodically drop dramatically from near 18 mbps to less than 1 mbps. This could be improved, but only briefly, by going to the TP Link page for my router and remotely resetting to a different wireless channel. This has to be done several times a day....no good. I'm going to try and return this item. I guess you do get what you pay for.

Customer Support Is Horrible

  • Summary: If your brand new router doesn't setup correctly, then you're basically screwed. When I called the company to ask for help, they got remote access to my computer for me, then installed a bunch of random programs saying that I need it, then looked through my computer and POINTED out the problems(saying my games were the problems and showing me why my router wasn't working), but never actually fixed it.

Have a lot of connectivity issues with this.

  • Summary: My old router was working ok, but I choose to upgrade to a new faster router. I looked at the reviews and thought it would be a good one. I was lazy to try this router right when it arrived. I installed only 2 weeks later. Anyways, I installed this TP link router and it worked fine. Installed as such was pretty simple for me(I am a software engg) as I am familiar with softwares. Randomly sometimes the wifi becomes very slow, really slow.

I Knock It Since I've Tried It

  • Summary: I have an old Linksys router from the early 2000s. It's a workhorse and it has good range, but nowadays I have to reset it daily, sometimes more than once a day. I wanted to try a modern router to see if I could get better results. This one, the TP-LINK, looked like a good bet. Cheap. Current. Great reviews. Some tech on Amazon can be sketchy, but this seemed reputable.

I can't use my wireless printer anymore; router needs frequent resetting; service team clearly not in US timezone

Eric Rosenblum, Amazon

  • Summary: I blame myself for this... i had read a couple of the one star ratings, and figured that their problems would be a rare exception. I was wrong. a couple of things: 1) Printer doesn't work: after getting this router, my wireless printer no longer works over the network. It worked with my old linksys without any issues. after resetting network settings on my printer and reconnecting to the router many times (the printer claims "success"), it still doesn't work.

Horrible product

aninda chakraborty, Amazon
17 January 2014
  • Summary: The reviews are very misleading. All other good reviews are for the 3 antenna one, but they have clubbed all of the 3 product reviews together. This 2 antenna one that is WR841N is not good when used with WIFI, atleast that I bought. The LAN cable connected devices work fine, but the WIFI devices dont get a consistent speed and sometime just hangs. Need to reboot some times.

Very poor performance

  • Summary: It won't provide the bandwidth needed to view streaming video even with lower quality video, maybe it was just the one I got because other reviews are much better.
