Great router Sep 23, 2010
This router is great. I bought one about 4 months ago and it has been running since the day I got it. No freezes, lockups, no drop in speed.
The only things about this router is, do not use the CD that comes with it. Manually set the network up in the router. If you have a basic knowledge of routers/networking it is an easy setup. Also, it does run a little hot. However, if you elevate it to allow air to pass under it as well it keeps it considerably cooler.
I would buy this product again.

Great, cheap wireless N 300mbps router Nov 08, 2010
For the money you couldn't ask for a better router, easy to set up, great security features and great price. Had it up and running in a matter of minutes. It is wall mountable, has 4 ports in back, compatible with my wireless G devices and arrived 1 day ahead of schedule. If you can read and follow the simple quick install guide, you should have no problems. Would recommend this router to anyone wanting to go wireless N on a budget.

Recommend Jan 30, 2011
By Duece Bigelow
I am really impressed with this router and I am very pleased with this purchase especially at this price!
I wanted a low-cost replacement and got tired of spending a lot of money for routers that worked "okay". I have owned three Linksys routers: BEFW11S, WRT54G and WRT54GS; all had problems requiring constant physical reboots at least every day (even with DD-WRT isntalled). Eventually replaced these with an Airport Extreme Wireless N a year ago. The AE was a HUGE disappointment and for $199 I was severely irate that the Linksys had MORE controls and features for 1/3 the cost. Unfortunately the AE did not need resetting like the Linksys'. With my bad experience I wasn't about to drop another hundred for a Buffalo or Asus either.
My original intent of this router was to install OpenWRT and Gargoyle for the bandwidth monitoring and control so the pricetag of $35 was my deciding factor --if I screwed up flashing it, I would only be out a small chunk of change... However, if you do want to run custom firmware, this router is (generally speaking) unsupported; mine shipped as v7.1 and thus far v5 is the only supported/released version.
Upon physically installing the router I immediately noticed the webadmin IP address, username and password printed on the identification sticker located on the bottom of the router. Wow, no needing a manual just to login; what a great start! The remaining portion of router setup was extremely simple and if ANY of the options did confuse me, the webGUI's right-side contains well written and detailed help info.
The biggest bonus (for me) that came built in this router is bandwidth control. NICE! Just the feature I was wanting. And to think I only bought this to install custom software. I will say that bandwidth control setup is intuitive and works great. Keep in mind though that you MUST bind the IP address with the MAC address of the computers you wish to control or setup static IP or something. Binding is easier, but that's your choice. Bandwidth control is configured by creating rules; rules which can be applied to a single or IP range. Each rule can also specify min and max upload and download speeds.
The only improvement I would love to see (which is available in Gargoyle) is bandwidth capping based on usage as opposed to overall limits. So, if your ISP gives you 10GB per month and you want to limit each PC in the home to 2GB per month, than this router (unmodified) is not for you. However, if a user is always downloading something and you can't stand all the bandwidth hogging --than you should find this router acceptable.
Another nice surprise was in the Security control with which I can limit local web setup to specific MAC addresses; great if you do not want other computer users to try and access the web setup page and WLAN bridging.
More features I have yet to try:
Parental controls: The Router, providing convenient Parental Control function to control the internet activities of the child, can limit the child to access certain websites and restrict the time of surfing. On this page, you can create the ruleaccess control.
Access Controls: The Router, providing convenient and strong internet access control function, can control the internet activities of hosts in the LAN. Moreover, you can flexibly combine the Host List, Target List and Schedule to restrict the Internet surfing of these hosts.
Okay, I have owned this router for one week now and thought I would do an update:
1- WiFi hangs or does not always restore itself following a software reboot -have to power cycle to get WiFi back online.
2- With that said, the TP-Link does come with a power button! Much easier to click-off-click-on than to unplug and hope the cord doesn't come out all the way. Very very handy when the router is shoved under a desk or some place painfully inaccessible and a power cycle is necessary.
3- The parental and access controls have me thoroughly confused. There are 4 pages (maybe more) that deal with setting up these controls; very convoluted. My attempt to time-lock one computer at a specific time apparently knocked everything offline.
Other than these (3) problems, I am still really happy with this router

This is a FANTASTIC Wireless Router Jul 11, 2010
By J. Kurz

If you need to send signal all the way down the block. If you dream of aiming signal right where it is needed. If you need a little less signal, take off one or more antenna.
This thing broadcasts 100 yards on the maximum setting. It broadcasts a signal 60 yards on Medium and about 100 ft on low. If you need less, as I said, they recommend removing an antenna.
Don't get this for a small apartment or small house. It would be overkill.
But if you have a place of business and you want to offer WiFi to your customers, this is the fast wireless router you have been looking for. All sorts of option in the configuration, or just use their wizard to configure it simply. You don't need to know anything about installing WiFi to get this up and running.

Great router! Nov 11, 2010
The router now sits in the corner, and I almost forgot about it. The reason - it just works with no issues so far.
It was easy to set up, it automatically found all the right settings to connect to my cable modem (once I figured out that I needed to power cycle the modem after I connected the router to it). I manually changed all the WLAN security settings to use an advanced encryption. Similar to the previous reviewer, I did not use the installation CD.
Now the router pairs nicely with a laptop (WLAN N) and a desktop (using another great TP-LINK product - 150Mbps USB adapter TL-WN722N). Desktop reports 150Mbps link all the time (about 30 feet distance), and so far I experienced no dropped connection, despite having many active WLAN routers around my apartment. During installation, I looked for the least used WLAN channel and set the router to use it.
I did an extensive research to find the best moderately priced 300bps WLAN N router before choosing this product, and so far I am very happy with my choice.
