4 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

Pros: Fast throughput on 5Ghz channel
Supported and easy to flash OpenWRT

Cons: USB port couldn't drive all my USB drives. Added a powered USB hub and it worked great.

Other Thoughts: Replaced an old TrendNet 802.11g that was dropping wireless connections sporadically. Until now, the TP-Link TL-WDR4300 has been rock solid. Nice having dual band (2.4 & 5Ghz) and the 5Ghz is fast.
After flashing OpenWRT, the router has become a smooth running Linux server with attached USB storage shared with the network.

4 out of 5 eggsBest router IMO for the price

Pros: Easy security setup when using the supplied disk and its wireless pushes a full 50mb at a strong signal on both channels.
I really like this thing and have never had a bit of trouble.

Cons: Only one gripe the lights are bright so bright in fact I had to tape over them with electrical tape, you don't need a nite light in the room you have this thing sad for me its in my bedroom so it was like day when the lights get turned off.

Other Thoughts: Looked at many brands and for the price this thing smokes them. :)

1 out of 5 eggsI need more power Capta Item#: N82E16833704136 Return Policy: Standard Return Policy Price: $79.99 Product Review Guidelines Newegg.com reads all reviews before posting them and reserves tin!

Pros: Unit might work out of the box for those wishing to use standard firmware. One of the features which lead me to this unit was concurrent radio activity and the ability to install alternate firmware dd-wrt.

Price was right, unit looked kool and the specifications would meet my needs for a second dual band concurrent unit running as an AP.

Having multiple wireless video feeds works better with multiple AP's distributing the traffic to the LAN and beyond.

Cons: Wireless power sucks [Adam Sam Sam] (apologies for any offense). The unit does not have the ability to transmit a 2.4 more than three to four meters with reliable signal. 5.x is a waste of time. Even with two meter line of site unit will not hold a signal. My Netgear WNDR3700 10 meters and two walls away grabs the devices.
I also have a 2.4 Trend Net TEW638PAP PoE AP even further away (in the garage plus four walls) which provides better connectivity.
Enough ranting.
In summary I replaced the stock firmware with the most current dd-wrt (two steps required) hoping this would resolve, or allow me to resolve, the power problems. No Joy, it still stinks.

Other Thoughts: I've had the unit since SEP 2013 and finally made time to set it up last month. Checked for updates and everything appeared to be current with no changes.
This is my first experience with TP-Link and it's not been a good one.
Normally I give vendors a second try in the event the first product was a fluke, so I will not pound on TP-Link for just this one experience.
The warranty is for two years, but RMA's are a P.I.A and I've already chucked the box (my mistake). Most likely I'll throw this unit on top of the next donation heap.

2 out of 5 eggs2.4 Ghz is unstable

Pros: Price / value when it's stable.

Cons: Every now and then, I would lose the 2.4 ghz connection and only able to access the 5 ghz connection.

Recently, the 2.4 Ghz stopped working completely.

As a test, I disabled the 5 ghz connection and none of my devices are able to access wifi.

Other Thoughts: Apparently I am not the only one with this issue. Google tplink 2.4 ghz stopped working and you will see a list of customers with the exact same issue.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat item, very worthwhile

Pros: Triple Antenna layout, good range, good hardware, lots of features.

**NUMBER ONE PRO** Ability to easily flash it to DD-WRT, and it is running smoothly, no issues. The stock firmware is also quality and quite stable. Great value for 5 Ghz * 2.4 dual band at that price point.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I bought this to turn it into an access point with DD-WRT, though you can make it a WAP with stock firmware, with DD-WRT you get to use that WAN port as an extra port for your network. Overall, very happy with it, I would recommend this for anyone needing a quality router that they have as an option to flash to other firmware.

3 out of 5 eggsNot what I thought

Pros: Looks cool
Easy to setup and change settings
Has a USB storage feature

Cons: The range on this router is not good. My old netgear router from Comcast had much better signal range then this router. I purchased to replace my netgear which was dying on me, I purchased a TP-Link USB wireless adapter and had amazing success with it so I thought I would give the router a try. Nope, would love to send back but don't have the box or anything like that.

I updated the firmware from the website, adjusted the antennas and made sure they were all the way on. Get roughly 20-30% less signal with this router.

Other Thoughts: Pick something else.

2 out of 5 eggsGot two of these

Pros: Well built, good value for the features. So so wireless range (don't have much of a benchmark to compare, but surrounded by concrete and almost no other wifi signals). No significant degradation over time (not that it helps in this case).

Cons: WDS wireless extending was never stable. On any firmware. Constantly needed rebooting, seemed to constantly runs hot.

Frustrating feel like I wasted $200 for a solution that never really worked. Always ended up turning off extended router to fix network. Wireless routers seems to be a gamble regardless of price, you never know reliability today or a year from now.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Router

Pros: I am streaming movies from Netflix in HD. The TV is thirty feet from the router and there are three wall in between. The picture is excellent and no re-buffering.

Cons: The small disk is hard to use in a slot drive.

2 out of 5 eggsGot RMA, still a bad router

Pros: When this router functions, it is fast. Supports DD-WRT.

Cons: There is some sort of flakiness with wireless connections. The connection will cut out for a second on most devices, especially under load. This happened with 2 units and with stock and DD-WRT firmware. Unfortunately, DD-WRT bridges are badly affected by this, and they don't instantly reconnect. Cycling power on the bridge reconnects, or waiting an hour or so the bridge will reconnect. Multiple bridges that work on other AP's have this problem, and different firmware on AP and bridge do not fix.

First unit was defective. It took OVER 2 months to get it RMA'd due to TP-Link's horrible customer service. When you call in they will give you endless 'troubleshooting' tasks to get you off the phone. If they tell you to try something and email them, you'll get a generic response 3-5 days later that indicates they did not read your email. They seem to do this endlessly, and they don't log calls or track incident numbers. Pro tip: Since TP-Link doesn't track your calls or log incident numbers, if you know your device is broken then tell them that you have called repeatedly and already tried every task they give you. If you stick with this for about 10 minutes they will finally put you in the RMA queue and a week later you'll get an email with instructions about how to get an RMA number.

Other Thoughts: See previous review for more details about RMA. This router would probably work as a stand alone unit with some random dropped connections, but will not work with wireless bridges.

Modest wifi signal. At 30 ft through 2 interior walls, 5ghz is 2 bars but still >2MB/s. 2.4Ghz is a little weaker than the last 2 non-N router's I have had, but still easily covers a 2000 sqft house.
