Great reception and easy to set up. Don’t worry about the other reviews like I did

I don’t often write reviews but read a lot of them, and wanted to put this out there to help anyone considering this router. When I was comparing different lower cost routers it seemed like every product had negative reviews and pointed out flaws, to the point where it gave me pause on buying ANYTHING at all. But bottom line this is a very good router for the price, simple to set up, and I recommend it BIGLY 1. Good reception in 2000 sq foot house. I have used multiple devices and streamed video with no problem. 2. SO SIMPLE to set up – right out of box, connect cord, plug in power, and use the SSID and password printed on the S/N label – no need to log in and do any configuration Do not despair upon reading all the reviews and just order this if you’re looking to stay under fifty buckaroos

The best router I’ve EVER owned

So far I have owned this product for a little over two months. -First, set up was extremely easy. The SSID and password printed on the S/N label, there was no need to log in or do any sort of verifying online. -Second, range has been great. In a 1,100 sq. ft. apartment we are able to connect to a full strength signal in all rooms. -Third, SPEED! I have ran both 75 mbps and 25 mbps at different times and got almost my entire internet speed both separate times. If you check the speed test I ran we are getting almost the entire 25 mbps. -Fouth, streaming. We do ALOT of streaming and internet surfing. With this router we’ve had two separate tv’s streaming while phones and laptop were connected to the wifi as well. Not a single problem. My old router from Qwest used to crap out and we would occasionally have to unplug it and reset it. Also, it was almost impossible to stream from two TV’s and use a laptop. Not anymore! This router is great. Some people in the reviews have complained about how bright the blue connection lights are, this has not been a problem for me. Granted we keep the router in the living room, but the lights have never bothered me. You can see in the picture they are not that bright.

Most reliable router I’ve ever had

When I purchased this router, I purchased the wrong modem. That was a mess lol. But the router signal came through strong and clear. My connection lags at times, but I get a lot of outages in my area. This router has yet to disappoint. I rarely every have to reboot it which is amazing. I know I made a sound decision when I got this. Thankfully I didn’t have to return this too. I would’ve cried. My signal is strong throughout the entire place and can handle when I have guests as well. I’m so happy with the purchase I made and I will use TP-Link products in the future. The set up process was so easy (once I got the right modem) that I couldn’t imagine using another brand. I had Motorola for years. This is a nice upgrade. Amazing router.

It is 5 stars, definitely with severe power outage test

Update: I was away, we had a severe thunderstorm in the area, power was out. I monitor my house remotely and thought unless I was physically there, everything would be off. The TP-Link went back online, the Netgear didn’t even respond. All the cameras, Z-wave house controls went back on with the TP-Link. I never had such luck with the previous Netgear. I strongly recommend this inexpensive and work great router. It is a bit early for rating since I tested only for 1 day. I may come back and give 1 star if it is dead after 1 week. However, for the time being, if you are looking for basic, low-price (the emphasis is low-price), this one is hard to beat. I used to be a tad leery of second tier network equipment makers like TP Link, but the it improves and the product is getting to be quite decent. There are two features that aren’t great, but one shouldn’t complain for this price: 1- it is not very responsive to admin access. oo many times it gives a page to tp-link website because the http server part doesn’t work. A bit frustrating that one has to turn on, off, or reset. Also, it doesn’t allow more than 1 admin log in at a times.

Great router

I purchased this router a week ago, so I cannot comment about the longevity of it. I’m out of my element when it comes to IT since I don’t really know what I’m doing or what to look for when it comes to IT-related devices, network, etc., but I took a chance on this since the reviews were pretty good overall. I was worried about the many poor reviews and the chance that I’d get one that didn’t work, but I haven’t been disappointed. I had a Cisco Linksys router that needed to be replaced which is why I bought this one. My connection is SO much better with this router. I would constantly get buffering and connection problems with Netflix and Plex, and my wifi status on both my laptop and Surface would switch to “Limited” pretty often. Even browsing on my phone was a pain and often I’d have to turn off the wifi. It got much, much worse over the last month. For now, though only a week old, this router has been great. The set up was quick and easy. I did it myself (and I’m not super tech savvy) within five minutes or so. The only problem I had with the set up was the cable that came with it; it didn’t work. I swapped it with one I had lying around and it worked just fine.
