I hate to pay the bill for their modem, that cost me about $4 monthly. So, when I ordered this modem and I'm really satisfied!
It's really faster than a regular ZyXEL ADSL modem (EQ660R). Unbelievable FAST! And it won't slow me down.
My internet speed is 4Mbps.
Don't forget to download LATEST VERSION of FIRMWARE. It's important!
How does it work? I will show you how to set up this modem.
1. Plug Ethernet (LAN) cable to this Modem and to your computer(Laptop or Desktop) LAN port,
2. Make sure that "ADSL" links are SOLID (GREEN).
3. Open a browser (Ex. Internet Explorer or other browsers)(there is no internet yet),
4. just type on the web address box: >>>>*** If this isn't working, read my "***NOTE***" below ****<<<<
Press Enter key on your keyboard.
5. A new window appears "Authentication Required"
The following are default the username and password:
To login to your TP-Link Modem.
6. Change settings:
Click on "Statistics" tab:
Virtural Circuit: "PVC1" instead "PVC0"
7. Save it.
8. Click "Basic Setup" tab
9. Again, Virtual Circuit: PVC1 then click "Save" button.
Refresh your browser and make sure it show
10. Open a browser, is there still NO internet connection? If no, you need to set up a new IP address. Very simple...Read more ›
That being said, the instructions aren't quite correct. For Windows XP and Vista the manual shows that you need to manually set a static IP address on your computer to log into the modem. For Windows 7 it indicates that you should set your computer to retrieve an IP address automatically. That is not true (this modem doesn't do DHCP). And don't plan on calling tech support; the 24/7 tech support number told me no one was available. For that I dinged it a half star.
To set it up you'll need the ADSL VPI and VCI settings from your provider. I had never heard of these, but you can find a list at e.g. [...] . The default settings of 0/35 work just fine with AT&T, so I actually could have plugged it in and not changed anything---a plug-and-play bridge. I logged in and changed the IP address, though---it comes configured to 192.168.1.1.
In all, you can't beat the price and it does what it's supposed to do. If you don't need instructions or tech support, you're good to go.
And no, the version I received doesn't look like the picture, thankfully---just a handsome medium-sized black box.
So I figured I would give TP-Link tech support a call. David was just about as much help as Google and in the end sent me to the same specialist line that Scott did...another thumbs down!
I did end up getting the modem to work and I came to give a quick run down for others who might give up on this cheap little jewel and send it back. Again this is for Centurylink I am not sure if these steps work with other providers.
1: Plug all cords in (Phone line, power, ethernet) plug the other end of the ethernet to computer or laptop
2: type 192.168.1.Read more ›
I only needed to enter 0/35 VPI/VCI instead of the default 8/35 VPI/VCI, along with my user/pass for using this modem. Do not forget to update your Linux computer's /etc/resolv.conf to 192.168.1.1 (instead of WindStream's 192.168.254.254 DNS), else you'll only be able to access websites without DNS resolving. (ie. Only via entering the IP address instead of www.foo.net)
I also noticed the TP-LINK's default MTU/MSS is set at 1480/1400 for PPPoA/PPPoE. I think these should be set to "MTU 1492, MSS 1452". An easily read Internet document showing how to easily adjust your MTU is at "http://www.dslreports.com/faq/695". And then further set MSS to "MSS=MTU-40". (Also see Cisco MTU/MSS published documentation via the Internet.)
These modems sound like they're fabricated from Linksys routers including Linksys firmware.

If you're around 8,000 feet or more from your telco box, try specifying G.DMT mode within Advanced Setup > ADSL menu. G.DMT is essentially ADSL1 and is more forgiving with high line attenuation or low SNR levels, as well as distance.Read more ›
