Better than the Vigor 120,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: TP-LINK TD-8817 ADSL2+ Ethernet/USB Modem Router (Accessory)
I bought a Vigor 120 based on all the reviews and it's compatibility with the Airport Extreme.
All was good, no configuration, worked straight out of the box.
However after 6mths of use I started to get latency issues and poor performance.
After going numerous rounds with BT I decided to try an old router modem I had. Problems gone.
Turns out this is an issue with some Vigor 120's. Excellent performance but they don't last.
I have now bought a TP Link 8817 for £15, which also worked straight out of the box with my Airport Extreme and is giving the same performance as the Vigor 120!! I would strongly recommend going for the TP Link.
Excellent price and same performance and interoperability as the Vigor.
Works perfectly with the Airport Extreme.
I will revisit the review after 6mths.

Hi. Can you talk me through how you got the Airport and 8817 to work together and get an internet connection? Thanks.

Hi, You don't have to do anything to the TP Link device, it works out of the box. It is the way you configure your Airport Extreme. For BT you have to select PPPoE settings and put in your account and password. Then the airport should connect through the TP Link.

Does this modem do PPPOE Relay over PPPOA like the vigor?
