Overall good router but...

Anonymous, Newegg
3 March 2015
  • Summary: Light weight, not sure if that's good or bad. Kind of bulky. Lost an egg or 2 from connection drops...otherwise 5 eggs could be justified for my uses. If you're looking to use WIFI for gaming, I'd look elsewhere. You get what you pay for. Overall I'd recommend for Web surfing, movies and basic use.
  • Pros: Price Light weight Design 3 antennas Setup is simple User friendly
  • Cons: Plastic Large in size Connection is lost relatively frequently. This is unacceptable to me for 3 reasons; - Size of my house (50th long) - Where this router is located (out in the open) - 3 antennas and it still drops connection multiple times over the course of a few hours from 40ft away? Unacce...

  • Pros: Works great, a breeze to set up and considerably faster than what I upgraded from.
  • Cons: The plug emit a horrible, high-pitched squeal that aggravates my tinnitus like mad. Need to see about getting a new plug. The sound is so bad, I had to knock off two eggs.

4.5 years later, dead

Gregory B., Newegg

  • Summary: Mine does not look like this, but it has the same model number (TL-WR1043ND). Mine was the first iteration. Been through four freaken routers in 6 years (different brands), what is the deal with these things?
  • Pros: Three ants. Nice HTML UI. Printer port worked great once firmware was upgraded.
  • Cons: You gotta start the printer program on any given PC to print. Died after 4.5 years. Couldn't get PC Print program to work on one laptop.

Easy to set up but some range issues

  • Excerpt: The router works fine and seems to deliver the promised speed. However, I was much more hopeful regarding the range. My previous router was G and I got the same wifi signal strength as the one I get from this model.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast, Fast Connection Speed, Reliable connection, Secure Connection
  • Cons: Short Range

  • Summary: It seems to work fine for basic web browsing and the such, but whenever I need to use LYNC for work, it seems to have issues. Network quality is always reported as "pretty bad" and the sound continually cuts out coming and going.
  • Pros: price
  • Cons: can't seem to handle heavy traffic

Bad Experience

Aristotle Z., Newegg

  • Summary: Newegg is the best.
  • Pros: Works well for 20 minutes.
  • Cons: 3 stars is too much for this router. Wan connection kept dropping every 20 minutes. Had to reboot. Bought another brand router that seems to work well. This one went back to Newegg.

V9, Could be better

  • Pros: Inexpensive. Good enough range.
  • Cons: I do not know what it is about version 9 of this model, but it does not impress me as much as other TP-Link routers. It has minor quirks with network connects that annoy me. The range is mediocre. I enjoy using TP-Link routers, but I prefer other models over this one.
