5 out of 5 eggsWrong description - No WPS button

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WR740N Wireless N150 Home Router, 150Mbps, IP QoS, WPS Button

Pros: No WPS button - if you don't use WPS, not having the button is a plus so you don't push it by accident.
Good config screens. Easy to disable WPS, unlike some other brands.
Good range but don't expect range perfection from any router.

Cons: Cheap power supply. Mine burned out. Had to buy a replacement power brick for $7. Annoying.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WR740N Wireless N150 Home Router, 150Mbps, IP QoS, WPS Button

Pros: Small, easy setup, works well

Cons: It wasn't free

Other Thoughts: I ordered this to replace a failing, ancient, WRT54G. I was a little worried about buying such an inexpensive router, but it seems like pretty much every router on Newegg (even the expensive ones) have their share of bad reviews, so I took a chance. I couldn't be happier, setup took about 5 minutes and I haven't needed to touch it since. It may not have high-end features like packet prioritization, or come with one of the popular open router OSes, but it works just fine for coupling my phones and tablets to the cable modem.

3 out of 5 eggsFrustrating to setup

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WR740N Wireless N150 Home Router, 150Mbps, IP QoS, WPS Button

Pros: Cheap, Supports DD-WRT

Cons: DHCP server and wireless settings are touchy. I could not get AES to work, and at one point the DHCP server disabled itself. It could be a quirk of DD-WRT.

Other Thoughts: I switched from a WRT54GL to this (needed the GL for work so wanted to replace that with a cheap one for home). The GL I setup years back without a hitch. This one was kind of a pain. I am glad that I decided to test TKIP vs AES for wireless, because I was pretty close to just sending this back to new egg.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Customer,

We appreicate you checking out this device.

Not every Adapter and OS is compatible with the AES encryption for wireless. This is for new 802.11n devices and TKIP is more compatible of the two.

The good thing about AES is it's very secure and it allows for you full speed, but you may run into compatibility issues which will make TKIP more useful.

We are glad to see that this deivce is working for you. Feel free to contact me directly at howard.he@tp-link.com for any issues or concerns.


Best Regards!

5 out of 5 eggsSimple & Reliable

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WR740N Wireless N150 Home Router, 150Mbps, IP QoS, WPS Button

Pros: Cheap.
Easy to set up and use.
Straight forward router.
Only ever had to RMA one as it was a victim of a lightning strike.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I've ordered a number of these for clients.
Wireless N 150Mbps and Wired 100Mbps rates are fine for simple networks in homes or small offices not requiring super fast and high data transfer rates.

*If you move BIG chunks of data daily , you'll want something else.

1 out of 5 eggscover only small area

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WR740N Wireless N150 Home Router, 150Mbps, IP QoS, WPS Button

Pros: Cheap

Cons: The signal provided by the router is only up to 10 -15 feet. It cant cover the entire apartment. My dinning room is about 15 to 20 feet away. I can bearly getting any signal. I contacted the tech support to try to change the setting and see if it can strengthen the signal a little bit. Unfortunately, nothing can help it.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Customer,

Thank you for trying our Router and we appreciate your review.

We would like to help get this device up and running for you.

You can contact me directly at howard.he@tp-link.com and we can get local support to get this resolved for you.

Here is a step-by-step guide to get into the Router: http://www.tp-link.us/article/?faqid=87

Once you are in here then you can change the Wireless settings that you see under the Wireless tab.

I would suggest changing the Wireless channel to 6 and making sure that the region is set to your current Country.


Best Regards!

5 out of 5 eggsGood inexpensive router

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WR740N Wireless N150 Home Router, 150Mbps, IP QoS, WPS Button

Pros: Gets the job done at a low price..
Easy set up. .

Cons: None for my purposes

Other Thoughts: I recently got a ROKU that needs Wi-Fi access.
Since my computers are connected to a (TP-Link) wired router, I needed an inexpensive wireless one to use as an "access point" for my wired system
The " TL-WR740N" fit the bill nicely. and works flawlessly..

5 out of 5 eggsEverything I needed

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WR740N Wireless N150 Home Router, 150Mbps, IP QoS, WPS Button

Pros: I've used this product for every bit of Tech I have. It runs a hard line to two desktop computers and also services wifi to both my smart phones (Iphone and Samsung s4) plus my Nexus 7 Tablet, my apple tv, and a laptop. I also play video games often while watching the apple tv, and messing around with my phone.

This router covers my whole appartment with wifi.

Cons: none.

Other Thoughts: I'm not saying it will work for you without issue but that has been the case for me. I would buy this router again and it was only 20 bucks. easy set up, never had an issue in over 2 years.

5 out of 5 eggsVery pleased — really good value

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WR740N Wireless N150 Home Router, 150Mbps, IP QoS, WPS Button

Pros: Easy to set up and use. Very good value for the price. I •love• the admin menus.

The WR740N's DHCP allows IP assignments •outside• the manually set DHCP IP range; makes it easy to limit number of "ephemeral" connections "in the pool" while allowing known clients/hosts to connect without limitation.

Cons: MAC-ID as printed on bottom of router was off by 1 (…F9 instead of …F8 — obviously, the production line count was off that day.) For some unknown reason, I just happened to double check the MAC-ID against what was showing up on gateway router. Would've been pulling hair out if I hadn't caught that when trying to manually register device on school network.

This was purchased for college dorm, so weak signal concerns (noted in other reviews) probably not an issue for my progeny in school. If anything it's a "plus" as the network tech group suggests lowering xmit power levels.

Other Thoughts: If only all routers had such a simple and direct admin interface. I cringe when I have to log on to other routing equipment because it's like playing hide & seek when finding where any given manufacturer places settings. The WR740N has a simple, clean, •INTUITIVE• interface that makes admin a snap for anyone with moderate-to-advanced tech skills.
