Worked for me, but has issues. Cheap.

James Dempster, Amazon
27 September 2014
  • Summary: Connected fine. Hardware seems good. Config pages are basic but load nice and fast. The issues I've had is small period stalls of the internet. Which I didn't have without this device. Some websites not loading, tunneling elsewhere shows the site works fine. Also connecting directly to the modem on the same machine show the website is functioning, but while being routed through this router. The website pings but doesn't connect. No traceroute.

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, Amazon
2 November 2012
  • Summary: The problem I had was that the IP address of the new network Router is that it clashed with the IP address of my old main modem router? In my opinion that'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 already, what is the sense in that?

TP-Link TL-R402M Cable/DSL Router

Amazon Customer, 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.

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.

needs software

Carson Mackenzie, Amazon
29 November 2013
  • Summary: The software would not work. Rendered it useless. If ordering make sure it has software that works. Not a positive experience.
