4 out of 5 eggsExcellent Upgrade

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WR1043ND Ultimate Wireless N300 Router, Gigabit, 300Mbps, USB port, 3 Detachable Antennas / IP QoS/ QSS Button

Pros: I bought this and the TP-LINK TL-WR841N together to replace my old Linksys E1200 which was always giving me problems. I'm in a very old farmhouse with thick walls so the old router barely got a signal out. Cascading this with the smaller one at the front of the house puts out a good solid signal. The E1200's issue was if I switched to Wireless N, every other day the network would drop and not reconnect (WiFi and Ethernet) so I had to stick with B/G and WEP only. Now I can run at full speed. Plus, my media server is ethernet connected so I can drop movie to the server from my main computer much faster with the gigabit ports.

Cons: I had a TP-Link before my Linksys and had no issues at all which is why I decided to go back. The problem I had with these routers were the GUI... they weren't as nice as what my older TPLink had, not as nice looking or user friendly, found myself clicking a lot of tabs to find stuff. As well, the wizard... I ran the wizard 3x and I swear it was different each time. Also, if you upgrade the firmware, it will wipe out all your settings. The lights were a bit confusing as well on the front... the WiFi and Internet indicator lights are always blinking, which usually means something's wrong, but, for this router it means everything is fine. A solid light means something is wrong, which seems to be the reverse of any router I've ever owned.

Other Thoughts: I've used this for a month so far and so far it's been working perfect. It looks great, and the 3 external antenna really put out a good strong signal. I have a few cons, but all fairly minor issues with the router, but since a few I only gave it 4 eggs.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent product

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WR1043ND Ultimate Wireless N300 Router, Gigabit, 300Mbps, USB port, 3 Detachable Antennas / IP QoS/ QSS Button

Pros: Easy to setup, plug and play basically.

Cons: Only minor issue getting the web management to work. I had to use the IP Address instead of the fancy web url they provided. The web url does not seem to work at all. Unsure why.

Other Thoughts: Only bought this router so I could connect my Kindle Fire to the internet and have fast speed. This is a big upgrade from the Linksys WRT54GS I used to have.

5 out of 5 eggsWhat can I say?

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WR1043ND Ultimate Wireless N300 Router, Gigabit, 300Mbps, USB port, 3 Detachable Antennas / IP QoS/ QSS Button

Pros: Fast. 450 Mbps capable. Great range. Gigabit ports.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Let me explain the title, "What can I say?" I ordered the WR1043ND v1 router when it was on sale for $29.99. The v1 model is the white one that has the original design. I ordered it, paid for it with PayPal, and felt like I got a good deal. Well... the very next day after I ordered it and paid $29.99 for it, the v1 router price was slashed to $17.99. I was not happy and I expressed my unhappiness to Newegg via email. I never received a reply. Well, when I received my router, I was shocked to see that Newegg had instead shipped me the newer WR1043ND v2 wireless router that was on sale for $44.49. What a nice surprise. Thanks, Newegg.

As far as the router is concerned, it is an awesome wireless router with great range. My modem and router are on the second floor of my house and I am able to still get 5 bars anywhere in the house, upstairs or down. I have Comcast Blast 150 Mbps service and this router works well with it. I am 100% happy with this wireless router.

5 out of 5 eggsBest router I've ever owned

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WR1043ND Ultimate Wireless N300 Router, Gigabit, 300Mbps, USB port, 3 Detachable Antennas / IP QoS/ QSS Button

Pros: Never lost connection due to router.
Regularly handles 5 devices at once.
No speed issues.
Nice design.
Awesome price.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: This is the 3rd router I've personally owned and is the best by far. The first was an old Linksys that would regularly lose its connection. After years of living with unplugging things and plugging them back in, I switched to Netgear. It didn't drop its connection as often, but it still happened on a regular basis. Now I have this TP-Link and my connection and performance has been solid since day 1. I don't know if it's because technology has finally improved to the point where dropped connections aren't a thing anymore or if I just found a company that builds a quality product. I may never know because I don't plan on ever getting rid of this router.

5 out of 5 eggsSo far so awesome

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WR1043ND Ultimate Wireless N300 Router, Gigabit, 300Mbps, USB port, 3 Detachable Antennas / IP QoS/ QSS Button

Pros: I've only had it for a few days now but it has been leaps and bounds better than the sub par Netgear router I had before.

Also, the antennae are actually 5dbi not 3dbi. Even better!

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: I had been using a Netgear WNR1000 that I bought a year ago for about the same price as this Router. I've tried just about every trick under the sun but i could never get the download speed past 8mbs on WiFi (I'm paying for 25mbps and I don't live in a large house). Since owning this router, I get full speeds no matter where I am in the house on all my devices.

5 out of 5 eggsFixed my interference problem!

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WR1043ND Ultimate Wireless N300 Router, Gigabit, 300Mbps, USB port, 3 Detachable Antennas / IP QoS/ QSS Button

Pros: Good Price
Comes with 3 5dBi antennas not 3dBi as the specs page states. I have called Newegg to have the page updated.
As usual Newegg has a great product at a great price!

Cons: Not free

Other Thoughts: I live in an area with a lot of other Wi-Fi networks with lots of interference and compared to my old Linksys router the data transfer rate of this router is awesome! My Linksys would range anywhere from 4Mbs-116Mbps and since my new neighbor moved in I am usually in the single digits most of the time.
Since I installed this I have not seen anything lower than 263Mbps.

5 out of 5 eggsTp-Link TL-WR1043ND N300 Router

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WR1043ND Ultimate Wireless N300 Router, Gigabit, 300Mbps, USB port, 3 Detachable Antennas / IP QoS/ QSS Button

Pros: Very light. No weight to it what so ever.
Runs very cool in comparison to old router.
Windows 7 auto configuration. Plug and play.
Don't use wireless, cannot comment on the performance.
Internet is faster now.

Cons: The support link listed in the paperwork, the web site is for sale, it will link you to Google choices. Had to think about this a minute. Went into Network in Win 7, right click the router, enabled it, right click the icon again, click "visit web site". Brings you to the set up page.
The wireless button for off and on does not work. With my visit above, I turned it off. Picked up 3Mbps on LAN upload. There are a lot of features for this router to enable or disable in the site

Other Thoughts: Replaced a 5 year old TL-WR1042ND router with this one. Had good service from it, Started to run very warm. Hope to get same from the new.

1 out of 5 eggsHuge let down

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WR1043ND Ultimate Wireless N300 Router, Gigabit, 300Mbps, USB port, 3 Detachable Antennas / IP QoS/ QSS Button

Pros: Easy to set up.

Very nice speeds for 15 minutes out of the day.

Very nice paperweight.

Cons: Worst signal drop I've ever experienced.

Slowest download speeds I've ever seen (I even took screenshots in case I ever need to suddenly burst into tears).

Less reliable than using my shoe as a router.

Other Thoughts: At least Newegg got it to me quickly.
