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: 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.
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 . Instructions are easy to follow in English or Spanish
Excerpt: I bought this product to replace a wireless router whose routing capabilities were redundant on my network and were causing problems. This device has simplified things quite a bit. It was easy to set up and worked flawlessly out of the box!
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Reliable connection, Secure Connection
Summary: I'm buying another one. With the Edimax "world's smallest" usb wireless adapter I was getting multi-second stalls regularily and pitiful average transfer speed, so this is vastly superior in comparison since it actually -works-.
Pros: Flawless linux support without having to build a kernel module. Very fast compared to the smaller usb wireless adapters (naturally).
Summary: Don't let the fact this is a lesser known company(TP-Link) here, I've very impressed with the value/performance and feature rich products. Now that said, I use them for repeaters and access points, not for main routers(my fav is netgear)
Pros: Sets up easy, used as access point and repeater in a daisy chain setup. Seems to be stable, no failures to date. Despite some reviews on troubled setups, I have not had those issues. The IP address is easily changed to match existing IP. As far as wireless power goes, it saturates the area pretty...
Cons: The 5 eggs are not for newegg's prices, just for the device itself. I bought my most recent ones from a competitor, for $12 a piece less....shame on your newegg, where is the willingness to be competitive?
Summary: I am using this as an Access Point, and it functioned as advertised. I have run into an issue with IPv6 in that the AP will just send out IPv6 addresses especially to Windows 8 & 8.1 PCs, which can cause internet connection issues.
