Pros

I love that it broadcasts simultaneously over 2 frequencies (2. Ghz and 5ghz). Ghz networks & a 5ghz network all used at the same time. The wireless speeds are fast. Wifi works great on it at both frequencies.

Woe is you. Don't hesitate on this one. As long as this one doesn't die on me, i am a happy camper.

The menu is easy to navigate. The user interface has three panels, quick, basic and advanced. All my devices connect to this as if my old router was still being used without any additional setup on any of them. I pulled a switcheroo on all my devices ...  Read More

Great router for the price. Happy with this purchase. Pretty happy with the router and their customer service.



Cons

The wired connection is fine, but the wifi has issues. Firmware cannot be updated wirelessly, need to download correct file, then connect to router via ethernet. If all the wireless devices have this issue — dropping the internet.

Quality


When purchasing any router, compare the speed of your internet connection with the speed the device is capable of.

Price

Since competitor newegg had a one-day pre-xmas special on this router for $29, i bought one.


I can't vouch for the maximum speeds they advertise, but i have a 100mbps connection and the 2.

    If you have a multi-printer with scanning you will have to manually start the scanning but printing to the printer can be setup automatically.

    Most likely if you're reading this because you're not sure what to get you should get this router.

    Replaced an old linksys router that i had flashed with dd-wrt, that router has lasted 10 years and still works however it doesn't support 5ghz frequencies or gigabit lan so i figured it is time to upgrade.

    So far download speeds have shot up to well over 100mpbs and were able to stream easily.

    I plugged it in and it immediately connected to the tp-link website via my wired desktop.
