Refurbished Wifi Router

Pros: WiFi has 2.4 GHz Wireless n/g/b and 5 GHz Wireless ac/n/a. Has excellent WiFi range.

Cons: Only has slow 10/100 WAN & LAN ports. Today's technology has Gigabit ports.

Overall Review: Way too slow with only 10/100 MB LAN & WAN ports to use as a primary router. Used it as a WiFi repeater. At a special price, it's more functional than the cost of a new WiFi repeater. Has excellent WiFi range to pick up the dead spots in the house.

Easy to setup

Overall Review: I would suggest trying other TP-Link product
- Internet keeps disconnecting and have to re-start it, this weekend I was totally on the INTERNET surfing and streaming videos and have to re-start three times.
I had a similar issue last two weeks but once / twice a week I have to re-start it.
My earlier TP-Link product I didn’t have such issues in the past 1year 6months.
I configured my earlier TP-Link product 1year 6months back and have not started even once in this time frame.
So, I am not sure if this production is going to reliable or not.
OR I might have switch back to my old TP-Link Product.

Not as advertised

Pros: None; unable to use at all

Cons: Cannot configure as a Wireless Access Point no way no how!!! Totally worthless if you already have a configured router and only need a access point. Someone needs to say that up front and NOT after the buyer has already spent the money.......

odd configuration but great range

Pros: really covers my house well, stable

Cons: what's the point of having fast wireless if your wired is only 100 mbps?

Overall Review: I bought this because it was inexpensive. It rewarded me with really great coverage. It does, however, keep me from using the full 200mbps my ISP gives me because the wired ports are only 100mbps. this is mentioned on the box but....

easy peasy lemon squeezy

Pros: Hard to tell it was refurbished. Worked great. Wall mountable. Affordable. Came with good instructional documentation.

Cons: Will not make me waffles.

Overall Review: Item looked so new it was hard to believe it's a refurbished unit. Setup was a breeze and connection is fast. Had a cable company router (forgot the name, looked like a small garbage can) and this little TP-Link blows it out of the water, despite not being a full 10/100/1000 setup (never got close to 100 with one that was anyway so, 'nuff said). Both wireless and wired connections, even over a vpn, are more than enough for video, games, youtube...whatever. It's even recognized by all my gizmos (phones, tablets, tv, roku, etc.) nearly instantly. Drilled some screws into a hidden spot on my desk to mount it and reclaimed a small piece of real estate:) And,this was so inexpensive that it was a 'why not?' purchase, so if your in the market for an affordable, excellent router, your in the right place.
