4 out of 5 eggsDon't Believe the Haters

Pros: -Price (when I bought it)
-Web Interface has lots of options
-Hooked up Lexmark Z1300 (2003 model) with no problems
-3 antennas
-Gigabit LAN

Cons: -Media Server too slow
-Cannot run dual band at same time

Other Thoughts: When this model came out, the 5ghz band was very new, not a dealbreaker that it cant do 2.4 and 5 at the same time.

Has dd-wrt available, just search, still wont enable simultaneous dual band though.

1 out of 5 eggsNot a good option

Pros: none

Cons: This router is SLOW and completely chokes when minimal traffic is put through it. I am the owner and advocate of many TL-WR1043ND, and these things are a ROCK. So to purchase this model and get junk was a HUGE disappointment.

2 out of 5 eggsOK router

Pros: Looks nice. Works OK as a basic router. WDS feature is nice and plays well with other TP-Link routers if you want to expand your network.

Cons: Dual bands cannot operate at the same time. This is a huge minus for me. Advertising it as a dual band was correct and misleading at the same time.

Other Thoughts: I plan on returning it as well. I think Newegg should save themselves the hassle and mention the dual band limitation in the description.

2 out of 5 eggsBetter Options Are Available

Pros: Fast speed. Allows high level of custom control over your network. Good signal.

Cons: Does not compare well against other dual band routers because it CANNOT broadcast on both bands simultaneously. Router was so new that the the TP Link tech support agent did not know they even made a dual band router. The manual suggests setting up different devices to connect to different bands depending on what those devices are used for, but you cannot connect your devices simultaneously. That seems like a very poor/inconvenient network design to me... Also, beware the limited compatibility of the USP printer utility. NO 64 BIT SYSTEMS are supported and the printer list is also quite limited.

Other Thoughts: Does what it can do great. I just wish it did what most dual band routers do standard... I'm returning this to get a Simultaneous-Broadcast Dual-Band router. Thanks to the NewEgg rep who understood my concern & processed my return.
