Pros: Setup manually or with disk is a breeze Dual antennas for better range Very easy manual setup. Cheaper than other routers with same features.
Can be used with open source which is a big plus for someone like me.
Firmware update within menu.
Guest accounts if needed.
Cons: bulky. Guess I am just used to the smaller sleeker routers that cost more.
Other Thoughts: I was impressed with the internal speed test in the menu. I always manually configure mine so I opened a webpage and typed 192.168.1.1. Always remember to cycle modem on and off the plug in router so they can see each other. Changed the name of router and password then changed the default password for the router itself. Arranged my port forwarding the way I like it for my games. In all it took less than 5 minutes to set up and have running. In all you are getting a basic router with a few extras. The blue and black color needs to change they have had those colors forever For the price you get great features and great signal strength. After testing a review router I usually hook my old one back up but I think I will leave this up for awhileREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: TP-Link Archer T2UH AC600 High Gain Wireless Dual Band USB Adapter
Pros: directional antenna
easy to install
comes with USB cable extender
Cons: does not have native Windows drivers you have to use disk.
Other Thoughts: First you have to understand the difference between 2.4 and 5 ghtz range. Most items like cell phones and microwaves and any many more household items use the 2.4 ghtz channel. It also has a lot better range than the 5 ghtz channel.
where 5 ghtz has much less interference but also less range. Very few items use the 5 ghtz range so you have less interference. Therefore the directional antenna helps with the 5 Ghtz range.
I found the speeds on the 2.4 channel to be a lot better even right next to the ac dual band router I use. For playing games I found that the 5 Ghtz channel had less lag closer to the router where at 100 feet away the 2.4 band worked better.
I did not use the software that came with it I just went into device manager and pointed it to the disk. As I don't have vista I could not test it on there I did test it on Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 and it worked like a charm on both. I did not test it on windows 10 preview as it is not a finished operating system.
The drivers will not install automatically on either system I had to use the disk on both.
To me many smaller usb dongles work just about as good and take up less space. I have a Rosewell mini dongle that is only 2.4 and works just as good.
5Ghtz band is a slower bang roughly half as fast as the 2.4 band. On the 5 Ghtz band I can get 24Mbps download and 12Mbps upload. On the 2.4 band I get 63Mbps download and 11.65 Mbps upload
As for the high gain part I just didn't see it with this adapter
This review is from: CORSAIR 16GB USB Flash Drive Model CMFSL3X1-16GB
Pros: SMALL AND IT FOLDS BACK INTO CASE.
Transfer speeds are goof for either USB 2 or 3.
Other Thoughts: even though it is only 16 gigs I find it large enough for what I need it for. I will use it as an installer for windows, it installs so much faster off a USB drive than a dvd disk.. my transfer speeds for usb 2 started at 10 MBps per second and fell to 6 rapidly. in a USB 3 it started at 13MBps and never went slower than 10. that is pretty good compared to others I have. I also like that it fold back into caseREAD FULL REVIEW
