5 out of 5 eggsExcellent router

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WR841ND Wireless N300 Home Router, 300Mbps, IP QoS, WPS Button, 2 detachable antennas

Pros: Great router with advanced features for a small price

Cons: As with all routers I have owned; both expensive and cheap, this one has the occasional hiccup requiring a router reboot to restore connection. This occurs less than once a month though which is by far acceptable. I used to own an expensive Cisco router that dropped almost daily.

3 out of 5 eggsSo So

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WR841ND Wireless N300 Home Router, 300Mbps, IP QoS, WPS Button, 2 detachable antennas

Pros: It worked when I plugged it up and still does. For the discount I guess it wasn't a bad price but that is it.

Cons: Not much any difference than my older Belkin. I can not tell that it gives a stronger, faster signal or handles any more devices. I spent some more money to still have a wi-fi that still can't reach 50 ft. through a couple walls.

Other Thoughts: If you don't have a wi-fi it's worth the price, if you think it is going to be any better, it's still a cheap one and that is all you get.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Customer,

Thank you for checking out our Router.

One suggestion may be to try some sort of Powerline solution to get through your walls.

In some cases the walls may be dense and will not allow a good signal to pass through.

Here is a link to our Powerlines. These will allow you to send your data through the actual circuits in the wall:
http://www.tp-link.us/products/?categoryid=206

Another suggestion may be to change the Wireless channel width to 20 MHz. This has been known to improve the stability and speed of the connection.

If you have any issues or concerns then feel free to contact me directly at howard.he@tp-link.com.



Best Regards!

3 out of 5 eggs2nd updated review

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WR841ND Wireless N300 Home Router, 300Mbps, IP QoS, WPS Button, 2 detachable antennas

Pros: inexpensive, supported by ddrwt

Cons: not long lasting. kinda unreliable

Other Thoughts: This is a update for my review on 2/5/2014. After running stably for 2 years, it start to ramdonly stuck and need reboot almost every day.
After I flash it using DD-WRT firmware, router won't be dead everyday, but it is unstable and short time disconnect with device after running for more than 1 day. I finally work around it by using cron job to reboot it every day automatically. and it may be fair to increase rating from 2 to 3 eggs.

For everyone who don't want to spend extra money on a new router and risk another unstable router. Try following steps to work around it.

1. update it with dd-wrt firmwire. There is multiple version of 841nd, so don't use wrong firmware.
2. In the dd-wrt web interfaces, administration->management, scroll down, you will see a section for cron, add following line here

30 2 * * * root /sbin/reboot

This line will reboot router at 2:30 am every day. you can put whatever time you want.

3. click "save" button at the bottom of page.

1 out of 5 eggsver 8.2 is junk

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WR841ND Wireless N300 Home Router, 300Mbps, IP QoS, WPS Button, 2 detachable antennas

Pros: price

Cons: Summary: I received version 8.2, and my router is junk. It requires a reboot every day or two. Unit freezes and is completely unresponsive. Web UI is unresponsive. Power cycle corrects problem. No firmware updates.

More detail: I have 5 devices connecting to the unit via Wi-Fi, and 1 wired Qnap NAS. I have been doing a lot of transfers of data from the pc's to the NAS (pc's connecting to router via wi-fi, NAS connected to router via wire). Ever since I started making these large data transfers inside my LAN, the router has started to freeze every day or two. Apparently it cannot handle the transfers, either due to firmware bug or hardware defect.

Other Thoughts: I contacted Tp-Link support, who was friendly and promises to call me back within 1 day for a replacement. I will expect Tp-Link to cover the shipping costs for the return/exchange. If they handle the situation professionally and I receive a replacement that is not buggy, I will be happy to post a new review. For now, I suggest that you avoid this one. Recent reviews of this model have shown MANY low-ratings due to defective routers.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Customer,

We appreicate your review.

It is good to see that this device was easy to setup for you and that this worked fine in the home.

One possible solution may be to upgrade the antennas of the device to a higher gain antenna.

You can find some of our indoor antennas on our website at: http://www.tp-link.us/products/?categoryid=217

We hope that the Dual-band adapter is working out for you and we hope that you will be able to check out more of our products in the future.

Feel free to contact me directly with any issues or concerns at howard.he@tp-link.com.


Best Regards!

2 out of 5 eggsIt lasts just 2 years

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WR841ND Wireless N300 Home Router, 300Mbps, IP QoS, WPS Button, 2 detachable antennas

Pros: cheap, easy to setup. signal is good, stable for just 2 years.

Cons: After putting in use for almost 2 years, it begins to die. It randomly halt within 24 hours and I have to reboot it every day. It's fair for a $23 router working for 2 years, but I know a lot of similar cheap router lasting much longer time.

Other Thoughts: I'm some disappointed because it was stable for 2 years and just passed the 2-year-warrety.
I tried to use different channel IDs and updated to latest official firmware. None of above could save it.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Customer,

Thank you for your review.

One suggestion is to update the firmware from our website with the newest firmware.

http://www.tp-link.us/products/details/?categoryid=&model=TL-WR841ND#down

You will want to select the Hardware version of your Router and then select the latest publishing date of the firmware.

I would also try changing the Wireless width to 20 MHz. This can help improve the stability of the device.

Feel free to contact me directly at howard.he@tp-link.com and we can try to help trouble-shoot this device.

Best Regards!

1 out of 5 eggsDO NOT BUY - Slow slow and really bad range

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WR841ND Wireless N300 Home Router, 300Mbps, IP QoS, WPS Button, 2 detachable antennas

Pros: None that I can find

Cons: - Turned on the router as advised in the CD. The LED for wifi does not turn on.
- I updated the firmware as a result and restarted the router. Finally see the WIFI Led light up.
- I have used it for 4 days now. The internet is so slow when compared to D-Link or Trendnet I have used in the past.
- There is hardly any connection beyond 15-20 feet. Other routers in the same range have amazing range.

Other Thoughts: Given my observations, this is a pretty lousy router. I am not sure if everyone is expected to update the firmware to get it to work. With the range this WIFI router has, one would just buy a 20ft cable and use a simple switch instead. I am not sure if this is an issue with the one I was delivered. Trying it will not be worth the effort.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Customer,

Thank you for checking out our Routers.

We are sorry to see that you are having some issues with this.

A firmware upgrade is not necessary and this Router should work just fine out of the box.

The wirelss is also on by default, so you should see this lit up when you first power on the device.

If you feel like this device is in fact defective, then we can replace it under our 2 year manufacture warranty.

You can always call our 24 hour technical support team for more assistance or you can contact me via email at howard.he@tp-link.com.

We would really like to work with you to get this device up and running with the speed that you are looking for.


Best Regards!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Economical Router

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WR841ND Wireless N300 Home Router, 300Mbps, IP QoS, WPS Button, 2 detachable antennas

Pros: Just wanted to provide an update on this router as I have had it for 11 months now and it is still working flawlessly. It came with the most current firmware at the time I bought it and because it has been so stable and reliable I haven't even thought about updating it. This is a well designed "cheap" router that performs admirably for what it is, with good range. I have it in the bottom floor of a Tri-Level home and get 5 bars in the master bedroom on the top floor. No complaints, no drops.

Cons: None, very stable and cool running router.

Other Thoughts: I probably have rebooted this three times in almost a year, and one of the times was when my DSL modem bit the dust. Got this when it was $20 and really had no idea that it would work this well without any glitches. It is a single band 300Mbps N router with only 10/100 ethernet ports, but it does what it was designed to do without problems.

When my DSL modem died a couple of months ago, it had been so long since I logged into the router that I had to look up the administrator password. Running that long without problems is my kind of router. If you don't need gigabit ports or dual bands, it is hard to go wrong with this router priced at 20 something bucks, especially after reading of some horror stories from people who have bought expensive routers and had lots of problems.

I will be replacing this in the near future with something with more capabilities but not because this one doesn't work well, and I will definitely look at what TP-Link has to offer after owning this one.

3 out of 5 eggsFine as a router

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WR841ND Wireless N300 Home Router, 300Mbps, IP QoS, WPS Button, 2 detachable antennas

Pros: Simple set up as a router. Web interface works well.

Cons: Don't bother as a bridge. Newest firmware and all suggested methods from the manufacturer's website and other forums. None worked.

Other Thoughts: Average router for basic computing. As long as you understand that, it's a good value. Just not for advanced features.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WR841ND Wireless N300 Home Router, 300Mbps, IP QoS, WPS Button, 2 detachable antennas

Pros: Light weight, inexpensive.

Cons: Won't turn on except when it's horizontal. I hang it on the wall and it won't power up until I place it flat on a table.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Customer,

Thank you for checkin gout our Router.

This is a very odd issue and seems like it may be due to a physical connection.

In this case we suggest that your contact our Technical support and try to get an RMA to replace the device with a new one.

You can also contact me directly at howard.he@tp-link.com and we can try to issue a manufacture warranty.
