Summary: We have converted our offices and now specify TP-Link in all our projects. Nothing bad to say about the unit. Have worked with several name brand units over the years and we have always had issues. Great reception, reliable, and a good price.
Summary: I was hoping to use this as a repeater. Then after I got it and was trying to configure it, I found a FAQ on the TP-Link web site that said it could only support WEP security in a Repeater mode. That's not in the manual, which I read before ordering it. Not that the manual was much help configuring the thing. If you don't know all the abbreviations (and I didn't), then good luck. The manual does have a glossary, but most of the acronyms aren't in it.
The TP-LINK TL-WR741ND with DD-WRT performs better!

Summary: I purchased the TL-WA5110G to replace an older failing wireless router that I used to connect to a wireless ISP. I also purchased a TP-LINK TL-WR741ND, and installed the latest version of DD-WRT on it. After spending an hour going back and forth between the two testing the performance, I found the WR741ND with DD-WRT performed significantly better by about 20%. With the TL-WA5110G, I would average around 4Mbps, and the WR741ND around 5Mbps consistently.
Summary: I just purchased to make my house wireless. It is kind of hidden that it is a router and a great one at that. Our home is about 1500 sq ft and we have 3-5 computers for different users in the house. We have had up to 3 on at one time WITHOUT SLOWING DOWN THE INTERNET ACCESS but says can be used up to 5 I believe.
Summary: This thing works well. Three of them do a good job of covering a large church building. A couple of notes for the wise buyer. 1. These use passive power-over-ethernet. That means you DON'T need and CAN'T use PoE (802.11af) switches. This product does have the necessary power injector included; you won't need a special switch. 2. Follow the configuration directions carefully, including the advice about turning off any existing wireless routers you have.
Summary: I've tried this thing as AP, client, and it sniffs my Wifi fine. I use the same SSID, and the exact WPA2 security and I can tell it joins. But, while DHCP is on or off, it always gives the LAN port the first IP in the DHCP setting, but the IP belongs to the LAN port MAC not the MAC of the device plugged in. Thus a printer on Ethernet to the AP does not get reached at all.
Reliable but Not Enough Wireless Xmit Power For Me

Summary: Had 4 of these connected to a DLink POE switch and the problems started from there. They required the POE injectors to be used because they took more power than the Dlink sent out. i purchased Engenious ECB3500 APs which worked fine with the Dlink without the POE injector. This AP stayed online for several weeks with no problem but I had many complaints that the signal was not strong enough even though the AP was only 25-30 ft away in a ceiling above the user.
