    Customer Product Reviews

    Rated 4 out of 5★ by 5reviewers.
    Rated 1 out of 5★ by No better that my old 802.11g WiFi router Averaged about 600 KB/s when copying from two 802.11n devices (Windows 7 laptop & Android 4.1.1 phone) -- which was similar to the speeds I got when I used my old 802.11g WiFi router. I was hoping for at least 6 MB/s. An N300 router should have a theoretical limit of ~40 MB/s.With a USB flash drive connected, I had great difficulty accessing those files. My WDTV player (connected via ethernet wire) could access some files (MKV videos would not play, MP4 videos acted like MP3 audio-only files. Only Xvid videos would playback okay). I was Never able to even "see" the flash drive with my phone or laptop.As a former IT Systems Analyst & current tech enthusiast, I must say that set up for internet and USB flash drive access was in NO way as easy as suggested on this webpage. After 4 days & nights of trying to get everything to work properly, I gave up.The only good thing is that I can easily return it at my Wal-mart store. Which I intend to do today. 05/27/2014
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great router Fast setup, great connection and so easy to switch out from my old Linksy/Cisco piece of garbage! 03/23/2014
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by This was very easy to set up and works great This thing works as good or better than routers I've paid much more for. Very Happy 03/07/2014
    Rated 4 out of 5★ by great router for awesome price Very easy install. The wireless printer function was the reason I chose this product since we have multiple computers in the home. Only part that would truly make this router meet all expectations if tp link would get an app to print from a cell phone or tablet. Worked perfectly first time I used, however the following day when I tried to print, it said printer not read. Maybe just a fluke. Need to give it a bit more time to see if one time thing. 01/13/2014
