TP-LINK TL-WR841N Wireless N300 Home Router, 300Mbps, IP QoS, WPS Button
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Has worked almost flawlessly since I got it.
Runs cool and provides great signal strength. Although my computer is only 15 feet away -- it still has to penetrate 2 walls and a packed closet.
Set up was a breeze and the web-based interface provides fairly detailed context sensitive information for configuration. Options available are vast and most probably unneccessary for a simple home network, but its nice to know they are there in case things change.
I've been looking for new things to connect to it! The main TV and a printer are next!

Cons: I was having to reset the router about once a week but since I removed the bloatware that came with my network adapter (EDIMAX EW-7612PIn) I've only had to reset the router once. I am assuming that a minor configuration change will eliminate all router re-boots and manual IP address refreshes.
It isn't dual band. The 5Ghz band isn't any faster but there are far fewer devices using it. I still would have purchased a dual band router but at the time I got this, there were only a couple 5Ghz adapters available (none at a reasonable price).

Other Thoughts: This is my first wireless router and I am very happy. I set up this network only so I wouldn't have to hardwire a new location for the cable modem or run a cable to my PC's new location.
Since I knew nothing about networking initially, I read many reviews about many products and this router seemed to offer everything I needed (and more) for the best price.

4 out of 5 eggs Does what its supposed to 04/28/2012

This review is from: Edimax EW-7612Pin 300 Mbps Wireless 802.11b/g/n PCI Express Adapter

Pros: Affordable and has given me no problems.
Device drivers included are up-to-date.
Connects through two walls (either side of a packed closet).
Provides throughput as fast as my ISP will deliver it (roughly 36 Mbps max.)
Working flawlessly with a TP-LINK TL-WR841N router.

Cons: The software included seems virtually useless and pops up uncontrollably when you start the system or bring it out of sleep.
I uninstalled the software and reinstalled only the drivers.
After removing the software I have had to reset the router only once. I was doing this once a week with the software running.

Other Thoughts: My first foray into wireless networking and this adapter has been painless.
The only advantage I can see to the included software is in setting up ad hoc networks, but I'm not sure you couldn't do this with out the software.

3 out of 5 eggs Now I'm hooked 04/28/2012

This review is from: Assassin's Creed 1 & 2 Ultimate Collection PC Game

Pros: Great bargain for two games!

Cons: Cannot get ACII to install. Cyclic redundancy error in Assuming its a bad burn so it is in no way Neweggs fault.

Other Thoughts: Still satisfied as ACI is definitely worth the $10.00.
Now I have to find ACII because in reading the manual, it seems to be even better than the first!
