4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: - Relatively low cost for dual band
- Pretty good signal
- Un-obnoxious physical design

Cons: - Occasionally stops routing. The router diagnostic tools can still reach the internet but connected devices can't. Works after power cycle.

Other Thoughts: - Installed OpenWrt 15.05 and it has been rock solid.

2 out of 5 eggsWorked great then...........

Pros: Lots of features, menus easy to use and understand (if your network savvy), lots of control over parameters and great performance (for a while).

Cons: Mine worked perfect for about a year then my wireless performance went from 50 mbs to 15 mbs. I tried going back to factory defaults but the performance continued to be poor. A wired connection ran at full speed, just the wireless was slow on both bands. I gave up and purchased a cheap Linksys router. It got me back to 50 mbs on my wireless connection but I miss the 3500's menus and controls, the Linksys controls suck!

Other Thoughts: I would not purchase it again, once bit the never again rule applies.

4 out of 5 eggsgood 5G okay 2.4G

Pros: 300 mbps on 5G, reliable, easy to set up

Cons: missing features of more expensive units, can't get wide channel on 2.4G

Other Thoughts: This router works well with dual simultaneous wireless-n. With 2 antennas both bands should be able to get 300 mbps, but 2.4G is so crowded that it rarely gets the max speed. Higher power would be needed. For the price it'd be hard to find anything better, especially with dual band.

4 out of 5 eggsDoes work with DD-WRT

Pros: It works. More bandwidth on 5 GHz band for my streaming media and I can cook popcorn in the microwave now without interrupting the signal.

Cons: Couldn't get it to work the way I wanted as a wireless bridge.

1 out of 5 eggsPlease give me signal

Pros: Flat

Cons: No range, drops all the time. Back to my Netgear till I find something a whole lot better. I have a large house. The single only stays in my office. My bedroom is 15 ft away and still very week signal.

Other Thoughts: Open it up, take everything out, redo.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat OpenWRT compatibility

Pros: Runs OpenWRT Barrier Breaker flawlessly. USB ports and dual radios are awesome. I use these to build wireless mesh networks for general purpose campus access where the 5ghz is used as a back haul network. I also have a deployment of 5 of these being used as Kismet drones for a WIDS/WIPS system.

Cons: No volume discounts, I have purchased 15 of these.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent Router for basic needs

Pros: - Arrived quickly and well packed from Newegg.
- Dedicated on/off switch
- Dedicated Wi-Fi on switch.
- Dual 2.4/5 GHz band
- “TP-Link Tether” application. This application, one installed on my iPhone allowed me to see on my mobile device who is currently using the router for internet access ( listing: device name, MAC and IP address). You can also sort all your wireless devices as belonging to “parents” and “children”. You can block “children” from browsing during certain times of the day or allow them only on certain websites. There is ability to block clients to straight from the iPhone. The setting section allows to turn the wireless radio and guest network on/off or even to see your stored wi fi passwords. Additionally, your mobile device must be connected to router to use TP-Link Tether app.
- Setup was quick.
- Decent signal strength.

Cons: - The unit is big. Its 9x5.5 inches.
- WPS protected setup is enabled by default. While WPS protected setup makes things easier to setup for novices, it is also increased security risk if you live in an apartment or a dorm.
- Lack of ac technology. But this should be expected at this price point.
- Hard to get it to work in AP mode.

Other Thoughts: - I would recommend this router if you are to someone who is looking for a fairly basic double band, fairly fast rounder for your home. This device will not disappoint in this task.
