5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic router, 26 April 2013
This review is from: TP-LINK TD-W8980 - N600 Dual Band Wireless ADSL2+ Modem Router (Personal Computers)
This was a fantastically easy router to set up, and once running, it works flawlessly. In our house, we run a laptop, networked HDD, 2 smartphones, an iPad, a Sky+ HD box, a Sony Bravia Smart TV and an Xbox 360. All were working perfectly within an hour of me taking this very attractive looking piece of kit out of its box.

We also have TP-Link Powerline and Wireless extenders, but now that we have invested in this router, we will be using the, less and less, since the range is a massive upgrade on the Belkin F5D8635-4 router we were using previously. Having the two separate networks is also ideal for a household like ours with lots of devices connecting at once - you can set up your web browsing devices to connect to the 2.4 and the Smart TV to connect to the 5, and you get perfect, unbroken connections on both.

Have previously owned Netgear and Belkin routers, but for me this beats them hands down. Yes, it is relatively expensive, but in this day and age, you cannot put a price on excellent wifi.

A couple of things to mention:
One reviewer said this didn't work with Xbox, which worried me. Don't fret - IT DOES! Really easy to set up too, unlike my previous Belkin which I remember being an absolute nightmare.

If, like me, you are am ADSL broadband user but intend to upgrade to fibre broadband when it becomes available in your area, this is the perfect modem router to buy, as unlike almost any other router, it works both with fibre and ADSL. This, for me, was what made up my mind to buy it, and I'm VERY glad I did.
