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.

5 out of 5 eggsHeckuva Wireless Router

Pros: Bought this to replace an aging G-band wireless router that wasn't serving up enough bandwidth to our mobile devices. Family has 3 smartphones, 2 iPads, 2 tablets, all of which are chewing up bandwidth at any particular time. Setup was fast and easy using the internet browser web-based quick setup wizard via hard-wired attached desktop. Using it for a home network and I was able to also configure a limited-bandwidth separate guest network for the occasional visitor.

Wireless network speeds are approaching max 600 Mbps for wireless, which makes me sad/jealous since my wired PC is limited to 100Base-T Ethernet, so now the family's mobile devices actually download FASTER than my "main" PC. But that's my PC's 100-BaseT card fault, nothing to do with the router.

5 GHz vs. 2.4 GHz issues have not seemed problematic after first install, I live in a vaguely hilly suburban neighborhood with a lot of a/b/g/n wireless networks and wireless 2.4GHz phones less than 100 feet from my router. So far: no issues with all bandwidth settings set to "Auto." It's very configurable so I can limit channel usage if problems do crop up in the future.

I will edit this review with more feedback re: wireless range parameters if possible.

From opened box to ~600 Mbps wireless speeds on all my devices took me less than an 30 minutes. Very satisfied, as long as nothing breaks in the future. Initial ownership experience is awesome.

Cons: None, really. Writing this 3 hours after install.

Other Thoughts: Just in case, I got the 1 year NewEgg replacement plan due to some cautionary reviews on the refurbished model. Hope I won't need it.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Router for the money

Pros: Dual Band works perfect.. Dual usb ports for storage or printer sharing awesome ...I got all my network sharing my Hp laser printer on the usb port ...

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: I was hesitant by some reviews but i am glad i got this...Works for me just fine.. I had a Linksys E1500 what a piece of junk ..I use to like linksys but after that experience never again .. I replaced with this router what a difference ..It was between this router and a netgear router.. I never had a problem with netgear ....

1 out of 5 eggsWas good, but now un-usable

Pros: Works as advertised... for about 10 months

Cons: After 10 months, I can barely use the router anymore. It keeps disconnecting me every 10-20 seconds. I have tried hard wiring into the router and wireless connections, but the disconnecting continues. I update the firmware and still nothing. Even checked the manufactures website for help and found out lots of people have the same problem and have not been helped.

Other Thoughts: Final verdict DON'T BUY THIS ROUTER, unless you only want to use it for half a year.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: Setup is fairly painless. Wireless coverage is great. Not one problem during setup and deployment.

Cons: DD-WRT capable, yes it is supposed to be compatible but my question is why? If done wrong, you have a costly paperweight. If done right you have the exact same router except the HTTP interface is more complex giving the average user even more possibilities to create paperweights..

5 out of 5 eggsA great router

Pros: It runs OpenWRT very well

Cons: The LEDs are too bright.

Other Thoughts: I bought mine locally a little more than a year ago & put OpenWRT "Attitude Adjustment" on it right away. It's been a very solid and reliable router. Mine is not for sale.

1 out of 5 eggsTP-LINK WDR3600 FAIL

Pros: Super fast router and easy to config for the novice.

Cons: The router failed just after 1 year! I purchased it on 2/19/2013 and it's now 7/10/2014 and it's dead! I contacted customer service and no support. I'm pretty savvy with routers so I've checked the firmware, upgraded it to the latest... still failed. So I switched to DDWRT as well as open WRT and still, failure.

Other Thoughts: Don't waste your money on this router. Go for another brand. I took a chance on it and figured I'd be like the others who still have theirs working... nope. Mine was 100% stock when it failed. I never even put on DDWRT or openWRT until AFTER it failed.

2 out of 5 eggsPoor Performance

Pros: Cheap, Free/Open Source friendly

Cons: Wireless network degredation when locally streamnig high quality video

Other Thoughts: I'm not sure what was going on, but when I streamed broadcast HDTV from a server (hardwired to the router) to a laptop over wifi—as I've successfully done with my old router—performance of other traffic would be significantly impacted, like major latency in ssh sessions over wifi (again, I didn't see that with my old router). Stop the video load and latency for other hosts/connections would stop (start working well again)

A QoS/traffic shaping issue perhaps? I didn't find see any settings that let me adjust such a thing. I confirmed I had the latest firmware.

Maybe opperator error, maybe my network is unusual, but I appreciate others taking the time to share there experiences here, so those are mine.

2 out of 5 eggsVERY UNRELIABLE ROUTER!!

Pros: Dual band capabilities, low price, works well if not dropping wireless signal.

Cons: VERY UNRELIABLE!!!! This router dropped signal randomly so often. I changed channels, on the router i even changed my ports and call customer assistance but this device did not work as I wanted. I am very dissatisfied with this product.
