Very disappointed - item returned

DismasX, Amazon
12 March 2014
  • Summary: This item arrived but wouldn't connect despite several attempts. Every other router I've had before and since connected without a problem so this one was returned. Don't know if it was just a duff unit or a bad design but wasn't prepared to try again.

Excellent (very!) basic router

Jaytag Computer, Amazon
21 March 2013
  • Summary: If you require an extremely basic router, to isolate one section of a LAN from another for example, these devices fit the bill perfectly. They've been used by us as poor man's VLAN configuration in some setups(!) especially where unmanaged switches were in use. Still features dynamic DNS for remote administration, and all the usual WAN port configurations. The TL-R460 or TL-R860 if you need parental controls, bandwidth management or an 8pt switch on the back.

Good Network Router - IP address conflict? and annoying Flashing System Light?

James Pimenta, Amazon
2 November 2012
  • Summary: The only problem I had was that the IP address of the new Router clashed with the IP address of my old main modem router. In my opinion it's a bit silly that the manufacturer choose to manufacture it with a typical IP address used for most modem routers because most people have or need one, what is the sense in that? Is it not common sense that a network router will always be a second device because it cannot connect directly to the internet?

TP-Link TL-R402M Cable/DSL Router

Les Roberts, Amazon
28 February 2012
  • Summary: The router was good quality but is not easy to set up unless you have some knowledge/experience in home networking. Basically, when linked to some TP-Link modems, both items have the same gateway addresses. You need to set the router to a different IP range than is used for the modem and set DCHP on. You then need to tell each computer to renew its IP address before it can connect to the internet.

works fine for the money

David R., Newegg

  • Pros: cheap, once it's locked and rocking it's solid.
  • Cons: Often, if the router is connected to a machine before the router is started I may have to renew the address of the router to connect through to the modem.

99% of the time it works all the time

Timothy L., Newegg
7 June 2014
  • Summary: If you want a basic, cheap router and are not a power user, this will do just fine. I am not that, however. I was just looking for the cheap aspect.
  • Pros: Cheap, does basic routing well
  • Cons: Ping drops. If you do a ping test on it from a popular testing website, it will drop 1-2 of the 200 pings. Have gone round and round with TP-Link on this one, and it's the router. Problem seems to come up sometimes when loading sites. If you hit a page request at just the wrong time, the page load will time out. Frustrating to say the least.

A great buy

annacoy, Ebay
6 January 2014
  • Summary: This router has performed flawlessly, since I installed it. I threw out 2 Belkin wireless routers because I had to reset them at least once a week to keep them working. This one has been working with no resets for over a month. It was a great buy and I recommend it highly. It is connected to a Time Warner cable modem and two PCs running XP Pro.

Not worth the aggrevation

Michael B., Newegg
10 October 2013
  • Pros: cheap
  • Cons: I had this unit connected to a Netgear router, so I could have 1 computer NAT'ed off my home network (for security reasons). This unit kept losing it's IP address - easiest solution was to reboot it about once a day. After a few months, the unit lost it's IP permanently. Not worth the hassle to sort out why.....
