Good basic router
Posted by: allynbrian from: on
This is a good basic router for the price. I tested this using my laptop and my LG G3 phone for reception and speed. I averaged a download speed of just over 80 Mbps and over 90 upload (please see screen shot of test speeds). This test was done at a range of 10 feet from router. My other router ($300 TP-Link AC router) was averaging over 100Mbps upload and download speed. At 25 feet away with 2 walls in between I still was getting a rating of good for connection strength on my phone. Set up was very easy and the router was connected and working within 5 minutes of opening box. This is a good router if you just need basic router and do not want to spend a lot of money. If you are wanting higher speed or will be using a lot of devices you may want to get a more expensive model.

Great budget Wi-Fi router
Posted by: TechReviewGuru from: on
For the price, you can't go wrong with this Wi-Fi router. It is a very basic and simple no frills router. With that said, it still performs very well. It is also easy to set up and has decent security features. I had it up and running in a matter of minutes. It is wall mountable and has 4 Ethernet ports in the back. This is ideal for small homes or an apartment. Another use-case for this basic router, is for hobbyists that like to test/develop/use customer firmware. It supports OpenWRT, DD-WRT, etc, and is very stable. Please note this router is limited to 100Mbps connections. Below is where I found this device really shines:
- Very easy to set-up
- Simple instructions
- Decent coverage, perfect for small homes or apartments
- Stable connections
If you do not care for the newer wireless AC technology, 5GHz frequency bands, and all the extra features, then this is the perfect router for you. I would recommend this router to anyone wanting to go wireless N on a budget. This was an unbiased review part of the TP-LINK the review program.

Great wireless router -Value Priced!

This is a review of a free product received by TP-LINK as part of the review program.
This is a simple to use and simple to setup router. The price is great and one reason why you should get this one. If you are on a budget and need a router that works this will do it.
TP-Link seems to have made this with the budget buyer in mind. The range is up to par with the size and speed of the router. It covers my room I have it in. I do streaming and gaming, and have really had no issues. Its not made to cover a 4 story mansion, but lucky TP-Link has routers for all size homes.

This router is an excellent router. When I installed it, it was even better than my router before. From then on, i've been using it and never changed routers since. The speed is great, since its up to 300mbps. Only thing I would change is the look of it. Overall, great product.

good device, nice range, lacking wifi connections
Posted by: mykdee from: milwaukee, wi on
Device was priced right and with dual antennae had great range. Had it in the basement and reached second floor no problem.
My issue began when we had too many wi-fi devices on at once. Every once in a while it would boot someone off- typically 2 devices at a time. I have a roku, 4 mobile phones w wifi, 4 laptops, blu ray with wi fi, etc. and according to TP-link if more than 8-10 devices are connected, it might not work.
Direct from TP-link "Generally we suggest not to use more than 8 to 10 devices at the same time to assure a stable and effective connection."
