4 out of 5 eggsDropped signal once in a while

Pros: Fast
Easy to setup

Cons: Wish it had more customizability in the UI (such as bulk Firewall URL filtering import or something)

Other Thoughts: Not sure if there's an issue with the actual Wireless or something on my brothers computer (ARP poisoning or something) but once in a while no device will be able to connect except my brothers PC. Reboot the router via physical button and everything works fine then

5 out of 5 eggsTP W8980

Pros: Simple to set up.
Very stable, above average performance,
IP Qos as good as the top of the line modem routers.
USB MediaServer, that works very well,
Above average 2.4 GHz and 5GHz simultaneous dual wireless,
Excellent value for money.

Cons: The only thing I could name, it comes in a bright black plastic
case that can hold fingermarks.

5 out of 5 eggsImproved Network Performance !!

Pros: Setup was easy !! ADSL connected easy only needed to know my VPI/VCI username and pass. I was worried about getting it to work with windstream here in KY but no problems whatsoever. DSL has solid connection, much better than the modem supplied by windstream, and wireless performance has improved over my old cisco router. I am a happy camper so far !! Seems to be a great bargain for less than 100 bucks !!

Cons: None so far

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible

Pros: If you can get it to work it's OK.

Cons: Setup is nothing like the last TP link I had. This one is a nightmare and can only be done through IE.

If you can get into the router, getting it to put out a steady signal is almost impossible.

Other Thoughts: I bought this DSL router combo because I was so happy with my last TP Link from a few years ago. But no more.

The firmware is garbage and the performance a complete disappointment.

This piece of junk is sitting in my closet - where it will stay until my older Netgear completely fails.

I do not recommend the W8980.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear customer,
We're sorry the modem router couldn't give you expected performance.
The modem router can be configured in IE/Chrome/Safari/Firefox.
Maybe something special affect it. We would like to work with you to figure it out.

May I have your contact? So that we can arrange our senior engineers call you back and check the issues you encountered.

Please feel free to drop me an email.
My email is:

Best Regards!
