Excellent bargain router, but not without it's quirks
Bought this to replace the shockingly poor D-Link DSL-2640R which was unable to maintain a stable connection (i.e. frequent disconnects) and, more annoyingly still, would not reconnect quickly (or at all sometimes) after it had dropped the connection.
The TP-Link by contrast is a marvel, holds the connection well and - should the line have problems - reconnects quickly and without requiring a reboot.
Garbage DSL modem, Stopped working in one month
Very frustrating. It would not connect for long periods of time, in spite of support calls to Netgear. Finally I just trashed it (since I threw away the box which was a mistake since you can't return it without the box). Stay away from this badly designed product.
USB port for sharing storage devices
Our one complaint is that Netgear's Smart Wizard software is PC-only. This means Mac users have to wade through a long PDF manual that explains how to set up the router through its browser interface. Once you get to the browser interface there is a straightforward Setup option, but this approach could still be a bit confusing for ordinary home users who are setting up a router for the first time.
