1 out of 5 eggsTP-LINK TL-WDR3500

Pros: Turns on

Cons: 1. worse connection than my $10 netgear router.
2. cannot use 2.4 ghz connection for online gaming because i disconnect out and reconnect in every other minute.
3. forced to used 5 ghz connection which either works or it doesn't depending on how many people are using the 2.4ghz connection. (maximum 4 other people)

Other Thoughts: - worst router i've ever bought and my last router had to be reset atleast once a day, but produced a stable connection all day long.
- will probably never buy TP-Link products again and make sure none of my friends do.
- I never write reviews.

2 out of 5 eggsMeh signal

Pros: Easy to set up
Quick connection

Cons: Pathetic signal

Other Thoughts: I got this to replace a TP-LINK 841N router for a few reasons. I know it's not a major step up but it looks as though I will have to spend a good amount more to get what I need. My house is 2600 sq ft, 1300 on each floor. The router is on the upper floor, in the middle of the house. I went to each corner of the basement and dropped signal completely on the 2.5 and 5 ghz bands. The old 841N was pushing 2/3 bars. I know I can get custom antennas and what not but the trade-off didn't seem worth it. I'll just spend a bit more and get something nicer.

2 out of 5 eggsDisappointing

Pros: On the 5ghz band with recent Macs, I experienced 94Mb/sec via speedtest.net

Cons: 2.4ghz band was very slow. Especially compared to my 4 year old Netgear router which was hard to believe. I've set many routers up at optimal speeds and this one was disappointing, even testing within 10 feet of the router in direct line sight. Parental controls and Access Controls overlap and could be much more clear. Also, many of the settings require a reboot and that takes about a full minute to complete. Also Windows 8.1 computers have trouble with this router forcing custom changes on the client's wifi adapter.

Other Thoughts: I would not recommend this router for most people and not for folks using Windows 8. However, if you're computer(s) have dual band wifi adapters and especially late model Macs, then this may be a good budget choice. I wish I didn't have to lose money for a lousey product overall and all the time on testing this.

4 out of 5 eggsAll good

Pros: Easy to setup
USB network storage easy to use
Included Instructions very clear
No disconnection problems

Cons: One egg off because the signal does not seem all that strong, I live in a small apartment so I have no problems with it but larger homes may want a more powerful router

1 out of 5 eggsUnusable for guest LAN

Pros: It's pretty

Cons: I bought this router to cascade off of my primary router to implement a guest network after I discovered that the guest network implementation is unusable. Well, that won't work either because this router has the same problem as my primary router (same brand) and also won't allow me to set the subnet as required. This works on at routers from at least two other brands. Now, I'll have to return this router or find another use for it. For my needs, it's worthless.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great!

Pros: Works great with our 30Mbps internet speed.
Offers dual band
Offers 5GHz.

I was suffering from USB 3.0 interference, so I got this with a dual band 5GHz wireless adapter and my connection is much better. I'm still getting a little interference when I backup to my external USB 3.0 hard drive, but it's much smoother than before. I hear this frequency is also good if there's a lot of congestion in your area.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

Pros: Concurrent Dual Band, low price, low power consumption, decent bandwidth.

Cons: Range is slightly shorter than other routers I've had.

Other Thoughts: I haven't had any of the problems others have had this router has been fantastic for me. It has lots of features too, like a guest network, bandwidth control, power output adjustment, etc. For the price this router is outstanding.

1 out of 5 eggsWorthless

Pros: Cheap - but you get what you pay for

Cons: It stopped working within a month of getting it. All the packaging has been thrown out so it cannot be returned. I have tried to reset it a few times...the lights are on, but nobody is home!
Luckily this was to be our 3rd router to handle the kids bandwidth demands, so the other 2 are able to carry the load.
