2 out of 5 eggsStinks. Don't buy.

Pros: Powerful, has 3 antennas, good range.

Cons: Loses connection daily. Has to be power cycled. I'm not the only reviewer saying this, read others.

Other Thoughts: I don't hate the TP-Link brand, but with this one they've made a stinker. I bought this with the TP-Link range extender. I though the range extender was bad, but then I unplugged it and used only the router, same problem. I am back to using my cheapo $25 wifi access point and will chalk this up to experience.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Hoosier,

We thank you for checking out TP-Link and we appreciate your review.

We can't tell if by loosing connection you mean from the Modem, Ethernet, or Wireless.

You may find that if you stay Wirelessly connected but loose Internet access, then the issue may be with the ISP or somewhere between the Modem and the WAN port of the Router.

If you keep getting Wireless connection drops, then the issue may be with the Wireless settings or the area around there.

If you go into the Wireless Configuration on your Router then you may want to check out some settings:
1. Try changing the Wireless channel to a static channel (like 2,3,9,etc.)
2. Change the Wireless width to 20 MHz for a more stable connection.
3. Change the Encryption to WPA(AES) for a better speed on the Wireless.

We have a 24 hour technical support team that can try to assist you further in trouble-shooting your device, you may find this helpful to isolate the problem.

You may also feel free to contact me directly for any issues or concerns at howard.he@tp-link.com.

Best Regards!

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible it lose connection every day. have to powercycle every day

Pros: none

Cons: I bought this router since I like tp link wireless apapter. but
I lost connection to all my 5 devices in 24 hrs. I have to unplug and plug back in. It behaves same everyday. I returned it and get same one I was hoping I got bad unit for once. The replaced one behaves exactly same.
very frustrated.

Other Thoughts: the reason I am writing this review is also to know if anyone has same experience

Manufacturer Response:

Hi James,
We're sorry to hear the router doesn't work well in your environment.
Could you please give TP-LINK another chance?
I suggest you upgrade the firmware to the latest for a try.
Here's the download link:

2 out of 5 eggsNot really a Wireless Router

Pros: Works fine as an ethernet switch. Web interface is pretty good and allowed me to circumvent the useless CD setup. Plenty of wireless options, allows you to set the tx rate frequency to increase reliability. 3 antennas.

Cons: Router won't hold wireless signal as expected. Speeds and signal on PC fluctuates from 300mbps to 11mbps. Confirmed on 2 laptops and 1 desktop with USB module. Distance was not an issue, laptop from 15 feet had the same problem. Tested on unsecured and WPA secured network, set tx rate to 40mHZ, disabled frame burst, upgraded firmware, wireless channels tested w/ inSSIDer, disabled wireless N, changed ethernet cable, and many other attempts to get it to work and I came up with the same result. Router only suitable via ethernet.

Other Thoughts: My guess is that the transmitter just can't hold the connection speeds that I need up. I considered installing DDWRT but I don't want to jump on that grenade and void the return policy/warranty. I really wanted this thing to work.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear customer,

We're happy to hear that you like the features and web GUI on this router and apologize for any inconvenience caused.

For the unstable wireless speed issue, I think it's because the wireless adapters are power saving enabled.
When the traffic is idle, it will slow down the speed to save the power, but once the traffic comes up again, it will connect back to high speed.

Please check it by downloading and browsing, you may feel the power saving mode on the adapter.

We thank you for checking out our product and wish you could check out more of our new products in the futhre.
If you need further information, please feel free to contact me:

3 out of 5 eggsDied in 9 months

Pros: Decent router while it lasted; nothing special.

Cons: Kicked the bucket after nine months and would no longer transmit a reliable signal.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear customer,

We are sorry to hear that your TL-WR940N stopped functioning after only 9 months.

This is a very short life span when considering the typical expected end-of-life on these devices are meant to exceed many years of usage.

Fortunately, our routers come with a 2-year warranty, and that means yours is still covered!

If you would like to speak with one of our technicians about getting a replacement device, please call us and one of our technicians will be happy to assist you!

Best Regards!

1 out of 5 eggsNo service

Pros: none

Cons: Customer service is nonexistent. Have tried for a month to get replacement for defective router with emails unanswered and one voice communication that promised rma but never happened. Would never buy a TP Link product again.

Other Thoughts: While prices are good when the product dies you are out of luck. Did not want to give one egg but review could not be posted without. True rating -10.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

We are sorry to hear that you were not able to contact customer support. This is not intentional and is most likely caused by technical difficulties.

If you would like to replace your defective unit with a new one, please feel free to contact us at the following information and we will be glad to assist you.

5 out of 5 eggsTL-WR940N

Pros: Excellent price, range, and speed. Much better than FIOS Actiontec MI424WR. It's now being used as MoCA bridge to TL-940N. No more random buffering when watching stream content.

Cons: Fixed antanna so cannot upgrade to bigger ones though its range is already good enough for 2500 sq ft house.

Other Thoughts: Had a hell of a problem with intermittent connection only with IPad 3rd gen. Found out from Apple forum WPA2 password has be at least 20 characters. Problem fixed. Runs little warm so peformed a pre-emtive surgery. Open the case by removing two small screws behind the rubber base and drilled some vent holes on the top.

3 out of 5 eggsrequire a change or return

Pros: work perfectly.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Dear seller,
I brought the TP-Link WR940N at 8/21/2012. It suddenly out of service today. I reset the router and reload the CD, however it doesn't work. I changed to another router, the new one is working, so can I change one or what can I do.
Thank you

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

We would be glad to help you in replacing your faulty TL-WR940N with a new one.
