This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WDR3600 Dual Band Wireless N600 Router, Gigabit, 2.4GHz 300Mbps+5GHz 300Mbps, 2 USB port, IP QoS, Wireless On/Off Switch

Pros: Powerful signal, covers my entire house with full signal as well as a bit outside. I have a 1008 sq ft house and about 1/2 acre outside.

Cons: Power cable was short, wanted to put it on top of my bookshelves, but the cord wouldn't reach that high. Bummer.

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WDR3600 Dual Band Wireless N600 Router, Gigabit, 2.4GHz 300Mbps+5GHz 300Mbps, 2 USB port, IP QoS, Wireless On/Off Switch

Pros: Solid cheap router once it's setup

Cons: Customer service is lacking. Good luck if you need help from TPLink.

Other Thoughts: Voip would not work with this router. No help from TPLink. Disabling hardware NAT fixed my problem. Found solution on another voip website.

5 out of 5 eggsBest router for the money

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WDR3600 Dual Band Wireless N600 Router, Gigabit, 2.4GHz 300Mbps+5GHz 300Mbps, 2 USB port, IP QoS, Wireless On/Off Switch

Pros: Best router we've ever owned
- Extremely easy to setup
- Very strong wifi signal
- Can handle 10+ devices (phones, laptops, tablets, chromecast ...) with no problem

Cons: - Signal is so strong that it interfere with my cable TV despite being more than 3 ft away from the TV. We have to place a picture frame in between the router and the TV to eliminate the problem
- Stock firmware didn't seem to get the most out of this great router. I heard that the latest Gargoyle firmware (1.7.1) makes this one a rock solid router. Gargoyle also has bandwidth monitoring, better Quality of Services (QoS), etc. I might give gargoyle a try in the future

Other Thoughts: Very happy with this purchase. I'll definitely introduce this router to my friends in the future!

2 out of 5 eggsFrustrated...

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WDR3600 Dual Band Wireless N600 Router, Gigabit, 2.4GHz 300Mbps+5GHz 300Mbps, 2 USB port, IP QoS, Wireless On/Off Switch

Pros: Performance is very good.
2.4GHz range is pretty good. A little better than the Netgear router it replaced.

Cons: Instability. My 2.4GHz connection dies every day or two and requires a reboot to fix it. the 5GHz wireless signal seems solid. Not doing anything crazy in my settings. A few static IPs and some port forwarding. This shouldn't be happening :(

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Customer,

Thank you for checking out our Router.

A couple suggestions I have for the wireless is to set the Channel wdith 20 MHz and change the Wireless channel to a static number instead of Auto.

If you haven' already done so then I would suggest trying to update the firmware to this device to improve the stability and performance.

You may find the firmware on our site at: http://www.tp-link.us/support/download/?model=TL-WDR3600&version=V1#tbl_j

Please give our Technical support team a call if you run into any issues.

1 out of 5 eggsNO MORE TPLINK

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WDR3600 Dual Band Wireless N600 Router, Gigabit, 2.4GHz 300Mbps+5GHz 300Mbps, 2 USB port, IP QoS, Wireless On/Off Switch

Pros: None

Cons: Everything. I don't know where to start. For some reason I purchased 3 TPLINK products in the last year or so...price I guess? A wireless USB adapter, a wireless PCI-E card and this router. NONE OF THEM WORK PROPERLY! They all have issues with stability. No firmware configurations will fix any of the problems. I spent hours on the floor in my room trying to get this router setup. At first setup it seemed very fast. Range seemed ok. After several days the router just stops working. I would restart it and still nothing. Even when restarting it wouldn't fully come back. It would go from 15+ MBps when first being setup to less than 1. And I would restart and it would maybe go back to 2 and still be unstable. I will NEVER buy another TPLINK product. I tried to save a little money and instead I got huge headaches and wasted so much time.

Other Thoughts: Eventually purchased an ASUS PCI-E wireless card that has been stable and awesome. Cost a little more, but it actually works! TPLINK has serious firmware/software issues.

5 out of 5 eggsGood router, be sure to update the firmware.

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WDR3600 Dual Band Wireless N600 Router, Gigabit, 2.4GHz 300Mbps+5GHz 300Mbps, 2 USB port, IP QoS, Wireless On/Off Switch

Pros: Good hardware, supports 2.4HGz and 5GHz, can stream video from online and also across my wireless to apple tv and popcorn hour. Be sure to upgrade to the latest firmware (available on manufacturer website)

Cons: didnt see much online about custom firmware for this router / chipset... doesnt really need it though. the range could be better...

Other Thoughts: There are a few tweaks to the configs you need the latest firmware to be able to change. Might not be the best router for people who are not tech savvy... some configuration needed to make this perform best. see what channel other routers near you are running on and try to get your own channel (especially if you are in an apartment)

5 out of 5 eggsTP-Link

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WDR3600 Dual Band Wireless N600 Router, Gigabit, 2.4GHz 300Mbps+5GHz 300Mbps, 2 USB port, IP QoS, Wireless On/Off Switch

Pros: Awesome router. Upon receiving the router I flashed it with DDWRT. It took about 1 hour to configure the settings. I restarted the router and it has not reset since. I get no errors on any transmissions. I supports guest vlans and has the ability to separate them from internal resources. Runs cool and is perfect for high data transfers. I transferred 39 gigs in about 12 minutes.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I did not try the stock firmware, but DDWRT for the router gives the router many more options than the stock firmware

5 out of 5 eggsTP-Link wdr 3600

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WDR3600 Dual Band Wireless N600 Router, Gigabit, 2.4GHz 300Mbps+5GHz 300Mbps, 2 USB port, IP QoS, Wireless On/Off Switch

Pros: I knew I would be replacing the firmware upon receiving the router. I initially installed Gargoyle as there was more positive reviews, but I quickly discovered that it doesn't support guest networks with encryption. I easily replaced it with DDWRT V24-SP2(03/25/13) std. works like a champ.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: It's definitely larger than other routers I have had, but it feels solid. You can replace the antennas if necessary, but the range in my 3300 sq ft home is very good. I have it on the second floor, and never drop below 4 bars at the furthest point.

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WDR3600 Dual Band Wireless N600 Router, Gigabit, 2.4GHz 300Mbps+5GHz 300Mbps, 2 USB port, IP QoS, Wireless On/Off Switch

Pros: .....?

Cons: I replaced a $14 netgear router I had with this unit and so far it is a joke. It is completely up to date with the latest firmware and gets 1/10th of the speed and 1/2 the range of the cheap router. I expected more for $80. I will continue to monitor and see if it improves, if not I will be returning.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Customer,

Thank you for checking out our Router.

We are sorry to see that you are not that satisfied with this device.

It is good to see that you've updated the firmware to the latest date as this should help with stabillity and performance.

It is a bit hard to determin from you post if you are having issues on the 2.4, 5GHz, Ethernet or all the above.

The most common setting for the wireless is changing the channel width to 20 MHz and changing the wireless channel to something other than auto - preferably something that isn't being taken up by a lot of other routers in your area.

You may also change the trasnmission power under wireless advanced. Try setting it to Max transmission if it isn't already to improve the distance.

Please give us a call if you are still running into issues. We are here 24/7 and may assist you in the trouble-shooting of this device.
