4 out of 5 eggsEasy intial set-up, easier then most to make very secure.

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WR841N Wireless N300 Home Router, 300Mbps, IP QoS, WPS Button

Pros: Easy set up, security set up is easy with plenty of side note to explain the functions to those who do not have advanced networking skills. Stays cool, low profile, has ability to prevent computers on a network from communicating with eachother within the network (useful if you're needing extra security and helps prevent the spread of network viruses).

Cons: 1. Dose not allow for port forwarding into a "Black Hole" IP address. 2. The WAN port is only 100 Mb/s max. If you have a cable modem with a 1 Gb/s WAN port you'll have to mess around with the transfer settings between the modem and router. I had to adjust my MTU between 2 of my computers and the router also. As a result it lost 1/2 an egg.

Other Thoughts: This is really good for most users, if you need 1Gb/s WAN I suggest the TL-WR1043ND is something you might want to take a look at.

5 out of 5 eggsThe cheap/budget router that will help a terrible rented modem with signal to the house.

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WR841N Wireless N300 Home Router, 300Mbps, IP QoS, WPS Button

Pros: Honestly, its good, setting it up was easy if you can read, and yeah not alot of trouble.

Cons: You may get a terrible power provider(thing that plugs into outlet, i know i should know the name.) and it will make a high pitched noise if its bad, but the customer service happily assisted a customer and replaced it for me without having to send in the really bad one, which is just nice of them to not put me through returning junk to them.

Other Thoughts: Great for cheap/budget people.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent Wi-Fi Router. OpenWRT firmware compatible

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WR841N Wireless N300 Home Router, 300Mbps, IP QoS, WPS Button

Pros: Low Cost
Can install OpenWRT Firmware

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I bought this router for my daughter who is currently in Grad School, to use in her small apartment. The router is decent, and has a standard Atheros brand hardware chip. My hardware version was 9.0, I installed OpenWRT firmware, which has more features and more stable than the TP-Link default firmware.

5 out of 5 eggsReliable Router

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WR841N Wireless N300 Home Router, 300Mbps, IP QoS, WPS Button

Pros: Cheap, Easy to install

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This was thrown in for free when I bought a Motorola Surfboard modem. I installed DD-WRT firmware on it and have been using it as a wireless repeater for my WIFI for over a year now with great results!!!! Bought Two more here recently to use as wireless repeaters on the network I manage at my church.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat for free!

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WR841N Wireless N300 Home Router, 300Mbps, IP QoS, WPS Button

Pros: Cheap, good enough to stream HD video, supports dd-wrt.

Cons: None really, it is only 150 mbps though. It's 300 mbps, but only half duplex. Only 100 mbps Ethernet connections. That's nit picking for a cheap router though.

5 out of 5 eggsOpenWrt works perfectly

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WR841N Wireless N300 Home Router, 300Mbps, IP QoS, WPS Button

Pros: The stock firmware works well, but I installed OpenWrt. Currently running the newest Chaos Calmer 15.05. Works like a charm. For $20 you cannot go wrong.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Have 3 in my home. One as a router and two as dumb AP's. Great product.

5 out of 5 eggsWhat a steal!

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WR841N Wireless N300 Home Router, 300Mbps, IP QoS, WPS Button

Pros: - Easy setup, no hassle, took less than 5 mins for me. simply plug and play.
- Dirt cheap, less than $20
- Stable, fast, and reliable
- Supports DD-WRT

Cons: - Doesn't have the best range

Other Thoughts: For a no nonsense wireless router that cost less than $20 and gets the job done, this is a no brainer and a clear winner IMO. However, If your looking for a long/far range router with a strong signal, this is not for you but if you live in an decent sized apartment and not a big house then this is for you.

5 out of 5 eggsA very average yet reliable router choice.

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WR841N Wireless N300 Home Router, 300Mbps, IP QoS, WPS Button

Pros: -Average setup similar to most generic routers. eg (192.168.0.1 -> user: admin pass: admin -> click setup wizard)
-Comes with a default 8 digit numerical password so you are never fully exposed with an open network even after factory reset.
-Has a Wifi on/off button on the back which is super useful if you have a problem of kids staying up all night on their devices but still want the direct connected devices to function eg. an office desktop pc.
-Power on/off button (no more fiddling with power cable to power cycle or turn off)
-Good range, much better than the older Generic D-links ive used.
-QoS is a very useful feature.
-Supposedly 2 year manufacture warranty (haven't had to use it yet so i have no experience on the quality of their warranty)
-Wall mount holes/channels on the bottom

Cons: -The materials are a more rugged textured plastic yet white so once the dirt and grime sets in its hard to clean and visibly dirty.
-The wall mounting channel/holes are shallow and the channel being nearly as wide as the hole itself limits the size of screw needed to mount it to a pretty specific size. At least it has a wall mount though.
-Not a super innovative and "pc illiterate friendly" setup like some of the more expensive new routers have these days, but it is the basic setup most generic routers have used forever. Comes with a decent english manual too.

Other Thoughts: I have ordered over 40 of these in the past year setting them up with various clients and have had no complaints yet. I used to set them up with small N300 my-dlink router's which have had on/off intermittent issues for me in the past. At the price i wouldn't even mind if these weren't reliable but so far they've been great! I even have one that i survey with around outdoors on a daily basis that gets dragged through snow, dirt, grass, and rain and still works fine!

5 out of 5 eggsWas supposed to be a spare, but now in full-time use

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WR841N Wireless N300 Home Router, 300Mbps, IP QoS, WPS Button

Pros: It was a spare I like to have on hand, but when my daughter moved into a rental rather than paying he cable company a monthly fee, I let her use this modem. She's had it in operation non-stop now for 6 months now.

Cons: None
