  • Summary: Averaged about 600 KB/s when copying from two 802.11n devices (Windows 7 laptop & Android 4.1.1 phone) -- which was similar to the speeds I got when I used my old 802.11g WiFi router. I was hoping for at least 6 MB/s. An N300 router should have a theoretical limit of ~40 MB/s. With a USB flash drive connected, I had great difficulty accessing those files.

  • Summary: Fast setup, great connection and so easy to switch out from my old Linksy/Cisco piece of garbage!

  • Summary: Very easy install. The wireless printer function was the reason I chose this product since we have multiple computers in the home. Only part that would truly make this router meet all expectations if tp link would get an app to print from a cell phone or tablet. Worked perfectly first time I used, however the following day when I tried to print, it said printer not read. Maybe just a fluke. Need to give it a bit more time to see if one time thing.

Good but not great

  • Summary: Router is decent for the price. It has strong signal and great range due to the 5dbi antennas. I have a version 1 so the 4 separate networks is awesome. If you get a version 2 you will have 2 networks as 1 is a guest network. Wired and wireless I get my full speed of 70Mbps download speed from my ISP. My only issue is while gaming with the Xbox 360 and PS3 you can't get an open NAT. My NAT is always strict or moderate.

not recognized by Charter

  • Summary: I love it when it works, but it has (too often, i think) just pooped out and when i call Charter to have them do their magic to reconnect, they never recognize the brand ... just adds one more complication to what is - to me - a completely mysterious techie universe.

Unreliable

OD, Amazon
10 February 2013
  • Summary: Set up was reasonably easy. Trying to update firmware bricked it until I found a way to access it directly and restore it to a usable state. USB hard drive connection was not as I hoped - I could connect a flash drive but not a hard disk (despite what the box and tech support said). Finally - kept having to reset it. Connection was lost 1-2 times a day on average. Power off/on always solved it. Changed it to an Edimax - works fine.
