Works great and is very cost effective. Will work with Chromecast with simple workaround.

Summary: I'm using this in conjunction with a wired router (which is also a TP-Link item). This combination is both cheaper and better than the wireless routers I've used in the past. Signal is strong throughout the house, configuration was easy, the unit is very stable.
Summary: TP-Link offers some great products at prices that can't be beat. Glad I found them.
Pros: I purchased this or use with a home video security system and can honestly say I am blown away at how good this $29 wireless access point is. Zero usage issues, speeds always at the top of the range. Easy to set up. Just plain fantastic. TP-Link makes great stuff. They're very underrated and for ...
Summary: This device is pain to set up. The only way to set it up is through putting 192.168.0.254 in the URL . After about 60 times I tried to access that address. I finally got it, but when I followed the steps to install it. IT DID NOT update the network . It just keep sending me back to the beginning.
Summary: For newbies: To access this router's web GUI, be sure to disable WiFi and disconnect any LAN cable goingr from your PC to a regular router. PC-to-PC large file transfer rate with a PC-AP-PC LAN connection is right around 200 GBytes/sec.
Pros: Has been working flawlessly for about 5 months with not a single reset needed due to slow access or lockup.
Cons: A bit tricky to set up to configure a new base IP and setting the mode to access point, but that's probably due to my inexperience with AP's in general. Resets for saving config changes take 80+ seconds to complete.
Pros: These thngs were a breeze to configure. They worked flawlessly on POE, even though you must use the passive adapters, it is still great way to place remote AP's. There were put into a small Drs office environment and they love them. The VLAN aspect is great and it is fast. Perfect.
Excerpt: I set up two unit as extender to bring wifi from one brick house to next door brick house in the Dominican Republic . It worked . Will add a 3rd unit to use as acess point to be able to connect a dvr via Ethernet .
Summary: I could not connect to the internet to connect the hardware. The first time I called tech support, he was short with me, told me I had to use my laptop, not desktop to connect, didn't work, called back and have only gotten busy signals.
OK hardware, poor quality firmware -- decent if flashed with OpenWrt

Summary: Really disappointed with this router. Didn't work as a repeater or bridge for me when paired with an ASUS RT-N66U. I was able to set up the TP-Link TL-WA801ND as the main Access Point and the ASUS RT-N66U as the repeater/bridge (yeah sad, I know), but the TL-WA801ND would crashed repeatedly...
