Easy to Setup and Use

I've used this router for the past two weeks and have been very pleased with it. It is robust, relatively easy to use, and reliable. I would not recommend it to anyone who is a complete novice to home networking, but people who feel comfortable with computers and peripherals should not have major problems setting it up and using it.

The WiFi features of this router are outstanding, and I've been able to enjoy fast, reliable WiFi access from anywhere in my house and the surrounding back yard. The WiFi is fast and powerful enough to stream uninterrupted high definition video to multiple devices at the same time. I only wish it would be possible to completely turn off the WiFi without turning off the Internet connection altogether. This would be a useful safety feature when you go on a vacation for instance.

I've used this router with my Acer Aspire AH340-UA230N Home Server and TiVo TCD648250B Series3 HD Digital Media Recorder. It has worked flawlessly with both of them. In particular, it has enabled me to access my home server from various locations away from home. Both upload and download speeds were very good.

One of the least appealing features of this router is its form factor. The multiple antennas may give you some geek cred, but they are not the most sightly thing to see in your home. Some other major wireless router manufacturers have eliminated most of the (visible) antennas in their recent model, and I'd hope that TP-Link may follow suit soon as well.

Overall I have been very satisfied with this router and would recommend it for use in home and small businesses.

We were using a highly annoying D-Link Xtreme N Dual Band Gigabit Router. The wireless field constantly seemed to expand and shrink as well as routinely collapse all together. Connectivity was unreliable in our house as a result. When the option to review an alternative was presented to me, I eagerly opted to do so.    The TP-LINK TL-WDR3600 Wireless N600 Dual Band Router, made in China, comes packaged with the router, two antennas, a power cord, and an Ethernet cable along with …
