Summary: Initially tried the firmware update, but had connectivity issues with my chromecast, so I stayed on 3.14. After six months, started having connection issues requiring 2-3 reboots a day and then become even more frequent.
Pros: Started out as a great router. Really impressed with the range and sustained wireless speeds. Initially thought my ISP was screwing me, but it was actually my Linksys dying on me. Much cheaper than other routers with the same options. Started having wifi connection issues after 6 months of use.
Cons: Major connectivity issues (slow/lost connections needing reboots 1-3/day) requiring a firmware update.
Summary: I bought my TP-LINK TL-WR940N Wireless N300 Home Router about a year ago. I have had a few issues but for the price of $30 I’d have a hard time replacing this. Overall this router has worked great for five phones, three computers, two Playstation 3’s, two Wii’s, a Playstation 4, and a file server.
Great router for the short time it worked properly
19 September 2015
Pros: Great range, covers a single bedroom apartment with ease. Steams at 25mbps, so my cable connection is not bottlenecked on WiFi.
Cons: Intermittent connectivity after about 4 months of use. Requires 3-4 reboots a week and sometimes in a single day. Sometimes the connection slows down to a crawl and some times it is lost completely. Got about half a year's worth of use, but not it's time to find a more reliable replacement.
Summary: Absolute garbage. Owned one for 6 months and it kept dying and need to be reset. I bought a replacement, worked for 1 hour then died. Reset again, 10 mins later it died again. I sent it back for a THIRD replacement. Took an hour to get it online (it just would not connect).
Summary: It's very affordable. The last router I had was around $60. It was dual band but that was 5 years ago. Anyway, I got this based on the number of good reviews and the price. It's easy to set up but ever since I have had it one of my online FPS games has turned into a sluggish mess.
Pros: Strong and consistent signal so far. Streams to TV just fine.
Cons: My laptop and this router do not get along. Internet is fine to all other devices but the moment I connect my laptop to wifi, signal goes down across all devices. I have to reset router and switch to browsing on my phone if I want to be streaming Netflix and be on internet. Laptop is a Lenovo Yog...
Summary: I bought this because it says that it has like an awesome range (better than my 54mps tp-link extended range router) but when i teste it it has the same range. My house is to story high and its kind of small and i cant use it in the whole house like it says in the description.
