  • newegg 5GHz 300Mbps + 2.4GHz 300Mbps - Concurrent Dual Band Wireless The TL-WDR3600 broadcasts and receives both 2.4GHz and 5GHz connections simultaneously at 300Mbps and 300Mbps respective speeds. Like two wireless routers in one, this allows users to run day-to-day applications, such as e-mail and web browsing over the 2.4GHz band at 300Mbps while using bandwidth intensive or latency sensitive applications, such as streaming HD video or playing online games, over the clearer 5GHz band at 300Mbps, at the same time.
  • newegg Versatile 2 USB Sharing Ports Using the TL-WDR3600’s two multi-functional USB 2.0 ports, users can share printers, files and media either throughout the network at home with several different computers or even away, using the device’s ftp server functions so that you never have to part with your files.
  • newegg Blazing Wired Speeds – 5 Gigabit Ports + 800Mbps Hardware NAT With one Gigabit WAN port and four Gigabit LAN ports, the TL-WDR3600 is able to support a robust and extremely fast wired network, ideal for latency-sensitive applications such as HD media and online gaming. With built-in gigabit Ethernet switch and a Hardware NAT function, the wireless router provides powerful data processing capabilities. Its NAT WAN to LAN throughput can achieve up to 800Mbps+ allowing users to unleash the full potential of their networks.
  • newegg IP QoS – Control Your Bandwidth TL-WDR3600 supports IP QoS (Quality of Service), allowing optimum utilization of bandwidth and offering bandwidth control over congestion, preventing bandwidth abuse. In this way, users of a small network receive committed and specific bandwidth, preventing non-critical applications from degrading network performance.
  • newegg One Button Security Setup The TL-WDR3600 features Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) that allows users to almost instantly setup their security simply by pressing the "WPS" button automatically establishing a WPA2 secure connection, which is more security compared with WEP encryptions. Not only is this faster than normal security setups but more convenient in that you don’t need to remember a password!
  • newegg Easy to Use The device comes with a CD featuring an Easy Setup Assistant that leads users through the setup process step-by-step, and even helps with wireless network settings and security configurations. With setups this easy, even novice users can have their networks up and running in mere minutes.

3 out of 5 eggsHas issues

Pros: The router has good throughput and works well as a wired router. Tech support is reasonably responsive and will issue an RMA when required.

Cons: I've been through four routers (replaced under warranty) in less than two years. I suspect that the cooling is inadequate and I've moved the router to a cooler location.
Guest mode functionality is worthless. The non-guest mode security interferes with guest mode.

4 out of 5 eggsFits my needs

Pros: Good range on the 2.4gHz band. Has no trouble going through a couple of walls. My PC is about 60 feet away from the router with 2 walls between it. Still have full bars. Ran speed tests with both the 2.4 wifi and with ethernet (cat 5E) on a 20Mbps connection, and it ran near identical speed tests results. Both 20Mbps. Pings results were about the same too. The 5ghz was lacking in strength though. (elaborated below) Firmware is fine. Decent features there , too. Unit doesnt get too warm.

Cons: The biggest issue is the 5Ghz band. Of course 5ghz doesnt have as much distance , but is in general faster/snappier. I have my game systems about 30-35 feet away with a wall between the router and them, and I was only getting about 60% signal strength off the 5ghz. I was expecting some loss VS the 2.4, but not that much. 2.4 strength was at 90%+ or so. (tried adjusting the antennas , but had limited improvement)

Other Thoughts: All in all, its a very good router for the price. I am happy with the purchase. It's reliable and has a good 2.4 signal strength (not the best, nor worst). The only downside is I feel the 5Ghz is a tad weaker than it should be.

4 out of 5 eggsQualcomm Atheros Chipset, OpenWRT support

Pros: Working fine with stock firmware, but purchased for the good OpenWRT support that I plan to use in future. Range is good, but not great.

Cons: So many green blinking lights on front, don't put it on your desk where you need to see it all the time.

2 out of 5 eggsSave Your Money

Pros: Wireless worked great for 10 months. Reliable: fast speeds; good range in a large 2 story home; zero downtime. Web based router software is easy to access and manage. No crapware included [thank you TP-Link].

Cons: Wireless network started doing strange things: Stopped recognizing password or network name; Updated firmware, reset router, changed network settings, but to no avail. Running Norton IS. Performed multiple diagnostic tests for intrusion, etc.

Other Thoughts: Worked as advertised for under 1 yr. Conclusion: A waste of time and money. Clever and glossy marketing obscured the fact that the product is inferior. By comparison, I have a Belkin Play N600 purchased in 2010 that still runs at top speed.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Customer,

Thank you for taking the time to review our product.

We are sorry to see that this device stopped working for you.

There are some instances where Norton will conflict with the Wireless profile and stop a connection wirelessly.

Some things that may help would be to reset the Network profile and disable Norton to see if a connection can be made.

If you find that the device does ineed have issues, then you can always RMA the Router and we will replace it with a new one.

Feel free to contact us directly with any issues or concerns.


Best Regards!

1 out of 5 eggsWorst router ever

Pros: Has a long range

Cons: Worst router ever. I am a very technical person, and sometimes even code the router firmware myself to fit my needs. But this router is the worst: it suddenly loses connect, at least 1-2 times a day, and even when it has to be full reset twice to come back up as normal. But it happens everyday and is very annoying. I updated the firmware to the latest, but no use. No scheduling setting to restart the router, like Tomato or DD-WRT. If it wasn't for the rebate I sent out along with the UPC code, I would refund this router. I will install DD-WRT and hopefully it makes it better, or I just wasted $50. I just had to reset router 3 times just when I was writing this review.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Customer,

Thank you for checking out our Router.

We are sorry that you've been having some isssues getting a good signal with this device.

DD-WRT or OpenWRT are other solutions to resolve firmware related problems.

We have seen good reviews for this 3rd Party Firwmare.

If you haven't already updated the firmware to the latest TP-Link software, then you may give that a try from our website at:
http://www.tp-link.us/resources/software/TL-WDR3600_V1_130909.zip

2 out of 5 eggsWifi Transfers Corrupted

Pros: Wired transfers are great and it's openwrt compatible

Cons: When transferring large files over wifi my SHA-1 hashes never appeared the same twice. When transferring the same files over the routers LAN port, or when using my old WRT54GL WiFi, the transfers all have the correct SHA-1 hash.

I updated the factory firmware then also tried openwrt, but the issue is the same with both firmwares. I've replicated this problem on two units. One was unfortunately deployed out of necessity, the other was returned.

Other Thoughts: I'm trying to retire my WRT54GL deployments and was hoping that this was the router, but without reliable wifi transfers i just can't trust it.

1 out of 5 eggsIt died after 10 months

Pros: Only had to reset it about once every other month, when WiFi would quit working.

Cons: After about 10 months, one day the power light comes on and stays on, but reset of the lights just blink no matter what I do. Unable to reset to factory defaults. I had to go to back up router, which worked just fine.

Other Thoughts: I'll update this review to tell you how the warranty process work out.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Customer,

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It works
Does most of what you want in a router

Cons: Does not have any QoS as advertised
Range is acceptable, but not great
Certain settings require reboot

Other Thoughts: Would be a great router if it didn't have false advertising.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks good as a wired routrer.

Pros: Competitive price for the specified features.
Gigabyte
Looks good hanging on the wall
Has been running 24/7 as a wired router for about 5 months without so much as a hiccup.

Cons: Non so far

Other Thoughts: The one star off is not for the product but because I have not used it as a wireless router so I cannot review it's wireless capabilities
I have had good luck with TP-Link. network equipment and the prices are usually quite competitive. There is a TP-Link older dual band wireless router as an access point and a TP-link 5port switch on the same network and none have had any real issues.
I have found the TP-Link Tech Support responsive if not always quite effective.
A quirk that tech support was not able to resolve is that with multiple TP-Link routers on the network with PNP enabled Windows has difficulty identifying each . I just disabled PNP as it is a security issue anyway.
