I've been had!

Andy B., Newegg
10 August 2014
  • Summary: My reason for buying this in the first place was because it was reported to have superior sensitivity. NOT TRUE! It will find an access point with a signal level of just 1db, but like all the other access points, it won't lock on a signal level of less the 14db so its really no better.
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: Boy, did I get stuck!!! Like others have reported, the software is glitchy BUT the housing is a design flaw too. I bought this to replace a 2 year old E*Genius that went bad. I climbed a tower to replace the E*Genius to find the outdoor ethernet cable jacket was to long to plug in to this unit an...

Unstable

Lisa N., Newegg
10 April 2014
  • Summary: The firmware is klunky. I ran this in AP-Client mode, and AP-Client Router mode. Both modes had issues. The device had trouble getting it's WAN IP from the dhcp server on the network. An issue no other devices on the net had.
  • Pros: Can run on 12V, so car/RV support is nice.
  • Cons: Unstable. Tested with several WiFi connections, and it could not stay connected.

  • Summary: Have yet to get this thing to hookup to a wifi network. Dont know if its the machine or my settings. And if I knew the language of the tech support people we could problably figure it out. Its been a very frustrating thing to deal with so far.

Incompatable and Unreliable

James W., Newegg
29 September 2011
  • Summary: It claims to be an outdoor unit; but I question this. They are relying on gravity to keep water out. None of the seams in the plastic or the access door where you hook up the cables are sealed with any type of gasket; only slightly overlapping plastic (about 1mm overlap).
  • Pros: Its small, it has a decent feature set.
  • Cons: I have this in my test environment, and it has a lot of issues. First off I can not connect with anything except Windows 7 computers. (Windows XP, Mac, iPhone, Android Phones, etc... will see it but won't connect; even with WEP/WPA/WPA2 disabled.) I have worked with TP-Link's tech support; a nice...

Don't Ever Buy this if you are looking to use it as a router!

cycneer, amazon.in

  • Summary: Hi All, One of the worse routers i managed to buy. Doesn't connect at a fair distance as expected (When Compared to a normal home router). I use another TP link at my home which is awesome. But this one! Gosh-- Just no words..!

  • Excerpt: В режиме точки доступа нормально работает только с одним клиентом, при подключении нескольких клиентов сильно падает скорость (это при том что клиенты только подключены и трафик от них не идет вообще). Реальная скорость при 3х клиентах только 5 mbps.
  • Pros: *мощный передатчик *большое усиление антенны *функция беспроводного клиента (в т.ч. в режиме роутера)
  • Cons: *крайне нестабильно работает *при подключении больше 3х клиентов скорость сильно падает

  • Excerpt: Взял для раздачи интернета другу живущему в частном секторе в 500 метрах от меня.Взял пару штук для настройки в качестве точка-клиент соответственно.После двух вечеров настроек вроде заработало всё это дело.Хотел уже всё это назад в магазин нести.Вывод:есть оборудование получше и подороже,но за 1850...
  • Pros: Сама задумка достоинство и на радость тем,у кого нет альтернативы!!!
  • Cons: Не выдаёт обещанной скорости.На выходе максимум 10 м/бит сек. от обещанных 54 и это в пару метрах друг от друга.После установке на место назначения скорость снизилась до 2 м/бит сек.Корпус из обыкновенной пластмассы,как бы не высох от солнца и через пару лет не рассыпался.
