And that's all it, it really it simple and very easy to get everything set-up.
On a further note, you may want to go through the router settings, I did this by opening a browser and typing in '192.168.0.1', the user name will be "admin" and same for the password, from here you can go through the quick set-up which will allow you to change the routers name as well as it's password (if you wish to do so).Read more ›
The dual band arrangement means I have now been able to separate my CCTV WiFi feed which was stamping all over my iPad's WiFi signal. This router has solved that little problem.
I think it would be just as useful in a household that do a lot of streaming or online gaming, and with a USB 2.0 port capable of sharing flash storage, printers, FTP servers and media players, it's perfect for users with an extensive home network.
Set up was very simple and using the auto-set up mode it was as fast to achieve as the connection the router provides. There are some cool additional features too, such as a switch to turn the wireless function on/off.
If I have one complaint (which I do) it's that the unit suffers from the same problem as every other TP Link router I've owned: Ulgy-itus. It's blocky appearance is very dated an not very attractive and and the dual antennas are far from easy on the eye, but they do at least provide a good range for the WiFi signal and a strong connection.
It's a good item that works well and it's solved some connection issues I was having, but it is still only going to get 4 stars. I've knocked off a star for its brutish looks and until TP Link have a word with their design team I don't think they'd ever be my first choice if I was buying a new router with my own cash. But that's just me.
noticed a big improvement, no drop-out at all.
net seems to connect faster too.
It is so nice, not having the BBC iPlayer pause every second for about a second while it downloaded another section of programme.
I would recommend this product to anyone having wireless network problems

If I had known there was a stronger TP link router I would have gone for it. This one works okay, but there are times when it is slower than it should be. Read more
This product has only 10/100Mb ethernet. It is not a Gigabit router as the name suggests. Don't get caught out like I was.
Only managed to get 80Mbps from a direct connection to this device even though I have a 120Mbps cable.
I get 120Mbps without the router.
I'm not impressed.
I am not a techie, so this is very much a lay person's review. And for the extreme lay person I will start with a warning. This is a router, not a modem and router. Read morePublished on 24 Dec. 2012 by P. G. Harris
