Summary: It did not used to hang so frequently, but it certainly did hang occasionally; otherwise I would give it two eggs instead of three. Still under warranty, so I'll report back after I try to RMA.
Pros: Same brand name as a router I previously owned (TP-LINK TL-WR541G) which NEVER needed rebooting. Works fine when it works. Detachable antennas.
Cons: Hangs at least once or twice a week, which is very tiring since I'm always too lazy to walk downstairs and reboot it.
Summary: I've started using TP-Link routers for all my clients.. Installed close to 100... all different models. They have all worked great.. as long as they all get the latest firmware updates. I've never had a problem. This router however, was a bit of a disappointment.
Summary: If you don't have a wi-fi it's worth the price, if you think it is going to be any better, it's still a cheap one and that is all you get.
Pros: It worked when I plugged it up and still does. For the discount I guess it wasn't a bad price but that is it.
Cons: Not much any difference than my older Belkin. I can not tell that it gives a stronger, faster signal or handles any more devices. I spent some more money to still have a wi-fi that still can't reach 50 ft. through a couple walls.
Summary: This is a update for my review on 2/5/2014. After running stably for 2 years, it start to ramdonly stuck and need reboot almost every day. After I flash it using DD-WRT firmware, router won't be dead everyday, but it is unstable and short time disconnect with device after running for more than 1...
Needs software update to work as a bridge, then it is good

Summary: I bought this to work as a network bridge to extend our home network to a corner of the house that is many walls and other obstructions away from the main router. In the end, it works well for a good price, but I wasted a lot of time trying to make it work before I finally thought to update the...
Summary: Customer service from TP Link was super slow to get back to me and couldn't really tell me anything other than return it which I couldn't do anyways since the 90 days were up.
Pros: Speeds were great, really easy setup, good range.
Cons: The WAN port stopped responding to network connections from my modem, the router thought it was connected to the internet when no cable was plugged into the WAN port but would say the opposite when you plugged one in. Essentially it lasted just over 4 months for me.
Summary: I bought this thinking that it was going to help my connection speed. The router I replaced this with was 10 years old and only supported 150 mpbs. So thinking this with it's 300 mpbs would help it didn't! It boots me 5-7 times a day!
Summary: I've had this router for 3 years. It worked great in the 1st year, but then I started having trouble with it in the 2nd year. The signal would drop out and not return. Eventually a firmware upgrade resolved that and the router worked fine for another year. Now, it is suffering signal drop out again.
Pros: Easy set up. Fairly short boot up time. Excellent range. Firmware updates provided. Low cost.
Cons: Becomes unreliable over time. Technical support is lacking.
