5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent WIFI Router, August 4, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WR1043ND V2 Wireless N300 Gigabit Router, 300Mbps, USB port for Storage, 3 Detachable Antennas, Speed Boost up to 450Mbps, WPS Button (Personal Computers)
I bought this wireless router because of the features and the reviews. It is a good thing I did. This is an excellent router.

Pros:
Ease of Setup - I got this working in less than 10 minutes. Just turn off your Cable modem and computer. Connect the router to the modem using the included cable. Power up everything. Then put in the CD and in a few minutes you are done. That includes setting up the WPA2 security.

Range - My previous Wireless Routers(Apple,Linksys,Zyxel) could only give me at most 61% from one end of my house to the other. This gives me 85%. That is going through 3 Bedrooms and furniture.

Speed - I used to get 12 Mbps with my previous router. I just tested it now and I now have 19.89 Mbps download speed from the same site I always test with.

Price - Excellent value for money.

Network USB Hardrive - You can easily share a USB hard drive. You now have no limit to how much videos you can download and games you can play. Share the drive with your entire family.

Cons:

Not Dual Band - It isn't dual band, but i don't need it so it does not bother me.

Summary:
This is a real find. Never heard of this company before, but I am very impressed with this product.

Yes, it does. All but one of my wireless devices is a G.

You say it is not dual band but looking in the setup docs it offers this mode:

802.11b&g&n,
and all of 802.11b, 802.11g, and 802.11n wireless stations can connect to the Router.

An I missing something in your comment?

He is refering to the frequency band. Better routers support using the 2.4 GHz and the 5 GHz frequency band. This will give you better reception in areas with lots of wireless networks.

Dual band refers to the frequency band. Like the Physicist :) said, there's 2.4 and 5 Ghz bands. 5 Ghz gives you stronger signal but less coverage. Most of the wireless mice, keyboard, remotes, etc work on the 2.4 Ghz band. To eliminate interference from those devices one should use 5 Ghz band. In my opinion, dual-band routers are overrated because the newer routers can actually change a channel with a less-crowded channel, still within the 2.4 Ghz.

Since it is not a dual band, what band does it use?

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 4, 2012 6:56:42 AM PDT
It uses the 2.4 Ghz.
