Summary: good inexpensive DD-WRT/OpenWRT compatible router. No 5Ghz but most laptops come with single band cards anyways, so dual band doesn't buy you much. WR842ND has a slightly higher TX output which helps to improve speed/connectivity for weak spots.
Summary: The TP-Link TL-WR842ND N300 is a top notch little Wi-Fi router. Easy to install and with minimal configuration you're up and running. I tried it with my PS3, PS4, Wii, smart TV, laptop, smart phone (Droid), tower PC and it works flawlessly across all devices!
Summary: This is a very basic run of the mill easy to set up router that will be able to handle a typical work load for the average house. Typical meaning you stream movies, play videos and use a computer.
Summary: The Set-Up is a breeze. The features are what I wanted(and the some). It has the 300mbps transmission rates, the 4 LAN ports, the UBS port, Connects to the printer(USB port), WOS button, DSL or Cable, WiFi On/Off button and more. The real question for me was/Does it performs to my satisfaction?
Summary: Works great! I had trouble at first because it would not connect regardless of what I did. The enclosed instructions were not very helpful. I had to call the help line to get assistance but now it finally works. Looks very stylish too, being all white.
Summary: This is an awesome product. it is so much more than just a plain router. I have no complains about the wifi speeds and quality of the signal. But what really sets this product apart is the USB port in the back.
