Summary: We'll see how long this device lasts under my abuse. So far it is chewing up and spitting out anything I throw at it. Very glad I chose this router. Great performance for under $20. You won't be disappointed.
Pros: Ultra easy to set up. So many ways to set it up (versatile). Great range. A real work horse of a router !! (A Wii U, PS4, 2 PC's, and 3 phones feeding off this thing and takes it like a champ).
Summary: I bought this Router because of the 3 external antenna, which you can deattach if you need to but honestly it works great, and because it has a wireless bridge function. I purchased two routers and was able to install one at my house and one at my neighbors house roughly 75 yards away. My neighbor had internet access because it will talk to the router that was in my house. If you are wanting to do this it works fine once you get the kinks out of the network.
Summary: Previous router also TP-Link; has worked flawlessly for as long as I have had it (several years, at least). Wanted something with better range, and possibly compliant with higher internet speeds. I am very pleased with this purchase.
Pros: Works like a charm. Easy, easy, setup; nothing is fool proof, but this is close. Directions are even understandable! Highly affordable (on sale, with promo code & rebate). Well worth the cost even at full price. Really can't say enough good things about TP-Link routers.
Pros: First time buying a TP-link product and I am very satisfied, Especially for the price. Have this router running for almost a year now and can't remember the last time I've touched it. Once I set it up and put it away in the cabinet I haven't had any problems. Very solid speeds and reliability. It doesn't seem to give off much heat either. Perfect router for the home. Range is pretty decent, I Get whole home coverage out to my driveway. Router is located in the center ...
Summary: Due to it's location we don't use the wireless much from this router, thus it's only handing out 2 IP's from it's DHCP pool and they are reserved for the other two routers.
Pros: This has been a solid router for me so far. I installed it July of 2012 as the main router on our network. Our iNet feed comes into this router in building A, from this router it feeds 2 other routers in buildings B and C. Our network overall consists of 3 Routers, 2 AP's, 1 wireless repeater, and 1 dumb switch. The WR841ND is the main "gateway" router of the network and has performed better than I thought it would.
Cons: I've maybe rebooted the router 3x in the last 2 years. Not sure if this is a con since previous routers I would reboot more frequently than that.
Summary: great little router. had to replace a gigabit router that only lasted a few weeks with this unit. I am supremely happy with the purchase. I added long range 15 dbi antenna and I get just the range that I need for my ip cameras and other electronics on my property in mutable directions. has not dropped or had to be reset since I fired it up a few weeks ago. glad that i went with this unit no problems.
Summary: I bought this router about 3 years ago, my home office is surrounded by CONCRETE and the ceiling is made with Steel and Concrete, the signal reaches the second floor and 99% of the house is covered by it. Do not hesitate about this router it will make the job outstandingly.
