5 out of 5 eggsDD-WRT is available

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WR1043ND Ultimate Wireless N300 Router, Gigabit, 300Mbps, USB port, 3 Detachable Antennas / IP QoS/ QSS Button

Pros: Gigabyte ports - work as advertised. I never quantified the actually transfer rate, but it's excellent.
Good signal thru entire house. Albeit the house isn't that big.
DD-WRT firmware is available, I have it loaded.

Cons: Windows is slow to connect to usb storage devices. The storage transfer rates are reasonable, once windows finds it. But you'll have time to make coffee waiting for windows to find it.

Other Thoughts: I've got the older white rectangular model. I'm glad, the newer black model looks silly to me. But you don't care.

5 out of 5 eggsUpdate with June 13, 2014 firmware

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WR1043ND Ultimate Wireless N300 Router, Gigabit, 300Mbps, USB port, 3 Detachable Antennas / IP QoS/ QSS Button

Pros: Recent firmware update.
Strong signal.
Fast. 57 Mbps
Price.

Cons: Looks a bit cheap.

Other Thoughts: I updated to the June 13, 2014 firmware (TL-WR1043ND_V2_140613). Very straightforward.

Don't see need to flash with DD-WRT.

Manually selected channel, b/g/n, and 20 Mhz (vs. auto which didn't always select the best channel, plus I wanted 20 Mhz channel width). Used WiFi Explorer survey app from the Mac app store.

57 Mbps wirelessly via Comcast Blast+ 50 Mbps tier, with Motorola SB6141 cable modem, using various speed test.

If you don't need fancy features, 5 GHz channel, and AC, then this 2.4 GHz router is a solid buy.

I haven't tested the distance, but the WiFI Explorer app gave very good SNR comparable to my expensive 1900 AC router.

2 out of 5 eggscrashes, very low throuput

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WR1043ND Ultimate Wireless N300 Router, Gigabit, 300Mbps, USB port, 3 Detachable Antennas / IP QoS/ QSS Button

Pros: able to get up to 450mbit connection when connected

Cons: low connection strength, crashes, and very low throuput for connected devices. RMA'd but loose $10 due to shipping

also the usb sharing is about useless, as throuput is extremely low (1mb/sec or so)

Other Thoughts: got a cheaper router, will just share from a computer or nas

2 out of 5 eggsConstantly loses connection

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WR1043ND Ultimate Wireless N300 Router, Gigabit, 300Mbps, USB port, 3 Detachable Antennas / IP QoS/ QSS Button

Pros: The only thing impressive about this router is the web-based config page. Lots of options and nothing flashy.

Cons: Cannot handle many devices (at least I think this is the problem). Routinely I will lose connection with my laptop (Thinkpad) when another device usually a phone appears. There are about 8 devices in total that may be connected at any given time.

TP-Link support tries but, does not help. I had already tried all the tasks they had me do (change channels, power, etc.).

The only way I have been able to continue using this router has been to offload some devices to an old WRT54G connected to a LAN port on this router. Without my trusty Linksys I would have taken this thing to the street and run it over with my car!

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WR1043ND Ultimate Wireless N300 Router, Gigabit, 300Mbps, USB port, 3 Detachable Antennas / IP QoS/ QSS Button

Pros: Speed, features, cost, range, ease of setup, GB router, N router, did I say cost?
I had the worst router ever in the D-Link 605. It did gigabyte and I loved that but the wifi was so unstable it couldn't stay connected to anything. I had to turn all the wifi adapters in the house to g to maintain a connection. I took that to work and replaced it with a Linksys WRG 64T. That was a little more stable, a little but had no range, no N and no gigabyte.

I plugged this router in, flashed the bios, set it up and now I get 3 bars on wifi 100 feet outside the house which is important since my T-Mobile phone needs wifi to get a signal at my house. I'm getting full bars in corners of my house that I wouldn't get signal before.

Cons: I didn't buy this sooner. I wasted $25 on a range extender that is unnecessary at my house now. That's half the cost of this router.

Other Thoughts: The local super store doesn't carry this $50 router because it wouldn't sell the $100+ varieties. Otherwise this would be the #1 seller.

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WR1043ND Ultimate Wireless N300 Router, Gigabit, 300Mbps, USB port, 3 Detachable Antennas / IP QoS/ QSS Button

Pros: This wireless N router setup it very easy -just insert cd and follow instructions....only thing I did different was the last step of verification which failed was reboot the Modem and everything worked. Very good range where I had two or three bars I now show five bars. No dropouts thus far.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: For the money, a great buy........Hope it provides years of service..

5 out of 5 eggsWOW.. price and performance !

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WR1043ND Ultimate Wireless N300 Router, Gigabit, 300Mbps, USB port, 3 Detachable Antennas / IP QoS/ QSS Button

Pros: Gigabit wired ports, great options in firmware, smokin fast.. have fiber at home.. 100mb up and down.. have tried several brands of routers.. none of them under 65 bucks could keep up with the hammering of 4-6 devices mixed wired and wireless between streaming video, gaming and large file downloads all at once.. had to constantly reset the others due to the traffic.. this one dosnt even bat an eye at it .. and my download speeds increased with this router .. now to upgrade to 1GB fiber to see how it handles it

Cons: Should have tried TP Link long before
