Wired works, wireless is unacceptably bad

Peter N., Newegg
18 March 2015
  • Summary: The gradual failing - having to reboot 4x/day in order to just be able to connect to web sites reliably - has turned me off of this brand.
  • Pros: Easy to set up and lots of features. The routing portion works well. VoIP via the unit works well.
  • Cons: Over time, connection drops increase. The unit is unable to support video without stalling. I have 7 wireless connections at home - 2 phones, 2 tablets, 2 computers, and 1 chromecast. I can't work on my work laptop without the connection re-setting constantly. It's bad enough that I'm going to ha...

Not Reliable

Adam K., Newegg
2 February 2015
  • Summary: Went and bought a NETGEAR WNR2020v2 right after this for a whopping $10 more. Couldn't be happier.
  • Pros: Cheap N300
  • Cons: Drops connections constantly even though I'm connected directly to it. Also installed latest firmware from their website. As an online MMO gamer I need stable internet which this did not provide. Added 1 egg just because it will get you on the internet if all you do is surf and email for cheap, b...

Pathetic Wireless Range and Speed

K Smith, Staples
13 November 2014
  • Excerpt: I have a 50 Mbps connection in my office and this router was having a very good day if I could pull 12Mbps from its wifi 5 feet away. Changing the broadcast channels and b/g/n settings were no help.

Tommy W., Newegg
30 August 2014
  • Pros: Great Range and connectivity on wireless side, Gigabit Lan ports, Very fast! Worked for a while and will still work if you don,t have power failure
  • Cons: Live in rural area with fairly frequent power failures(once a week) Unable to change ip address of router permantly. Will not retain ip address after power failure, goes by to default setting. Also static ip addresses added disappear. Should have cmos battery inside may be dead!!! Probable will v...

crashes, very low throuput

Jason S., Newegg
5 August 2014
  • Summary: got a cheaper router, will just share from a computer or nas
  • Pros: able to get up to 450mbit connection when connected
  • Cons: low connection strength, crashes, and very low throuput for connected devices. RMA'd but loose $10 due to shipping also the usb sharing is about useless, as throuput is extremely low (1mb/sec or so)

Constantly loses connection

Joey H., Newegg
1 August 2014
  • Pros: The only thing impressive about this router is the web-based config page. Lots of options and nothing flashy.
  • Cons: Cannot handle many devices (at least I think this is the problem). Routinely I will lose connection with my laptop (Thinkpad) when another device usually a phone appears. There are about 8 devices in total that may be connected at any given time. TP-Link support tries but, does not help. I had al...

cheep and poor.

gaarith k., Newegg
22 March 2014
  • Summary: from product replies i made this morning: yes [ it will wifi link, or work as a repeater] via wds bridging, but the tp-link is a poor performer as far as wifi is concerned. here is a reply i gave moments ago to another question and will post to the product review: they are full [gig duplex] as best...
  • Pros: detachable antennas. the ONLY reason why i bought it. if rosewill or netgear or trendnet (who had bad fitting ethernet ports for awhile) had a similar model in the price range i would have gone with them. the other brands do not even use the micro connectors on the PCB so you can swap to whips fo...
  • Cons: same old poor signal and (UN)reliable wifi. would i buy again? NO! did not like tp-link when they first showed up as a dlink clone, did not like them a few year later and this shows they still have not changed. do not like dlink either for similar reasons.

Updated after 5 months

Joseph N., Newegg
21 March 2014
  • Summary: It was great on the wired connections. On wireless it had constant lags/disconnects. I replaced with a D-Link AC1200 and it is stable and has even better range
  • Pros: It's fast and cheap. Great for wasting time and money.
  • Cons: Constant WiFi lags. Not usable. I threw it out.

Good product, the WORST technical support

yesborg, Amazon
20 January 2014
  • Summary: This product was great until I started having compatibility issues. Every wireless product in my household was working great, but my new iPad Air didn't want to connect to the internet. Turns out I needed to change a setting on the router (I found out by browsing forums).
