Initial user setup is straight forward and easy enough for the basic operation.
Built in guest wireless settings for both 2.4GHz and 5GHz, with multiple connection options and wireless bridging support.
Throughput was good for at least 10 devices. Video streaming showed no stuttering or slowness even when multiple (4) concurrent devices were streaming at high quality (1080p 8MB/sec)
Two different SSIDs used for 2.4GHz (802.11bgn) and 5GHz (802.11ac) and you can disable either one if you do not use it.
Supports OpenVPN for outside access.
Usernames are case sensitive, I found this buried in the manual, not on the web administration page.
Passwords can not use extended characters, limited to a-z, A-Z, 0-9, _ ONLY, even for the external system and USB drive access!!!!
Only 1 administrator logged in at one time, so if you forget to log out of the web interface, you have to log back in reboot the router to reset
External remote management uses HTTP not HTTPS, I suggest not enabling this.
USB sharing only works through FTP access.
Parental controls are difficult to understand and hard to setup
The unit supports the standard set of wireless features such as NAT forwarding, QOS, Dynamin DNS and IPTV support.
Supports IPv6 connections on the Internet interface only.
The tether feature (mobile app) is a neat concept that works with your mobile devices, but it only works while on your internal network unless tied to a TP-Link account, which I never setup and oddly enough the app was locked into one orientation of my device, so I could not rotate my phone.
Daylight savings time off by default
All in all this unit is a good unit for what I would consider an 'entry level' dual band router. If you are on a budget, do not need any "geek-level" advanced features, this would work for you. It is not supported by DD-WRT, so you can not re-flash it for a different feature set. Signal coverage was excellent across my my entire single story home, including in areas where neighboring wireless routers could be detected. Also, just keep in mind that some of the default settings are not what you may expect them to be, so definitely read the user manual if you are going to enable any of the advanced features.
