Cons:
- Comes with Chinese firmware requiring workarounds if you can't read Chinese.

Pros:
- Very inexpensive
- Good performance and features
- "Open router"

Other:
Got 2 units so far. Also, I can't read Chinese. All the operations listed below are described on various sites, just search.

On 1st unit I loaded OpenWrt but couldn't figure the correct bridge mode settings (to no fault of openwrt). Loaded dd-wrt instead and got it working fine as bridge but the LED was off all the time. Found out another way of getting English GUI was by loading the TL-MR3020 firmware. Couldn't find a direct way from dd-wrt so I tried reverting to original firmware but bricked the unit in the process.

Received 2nd unit and tried TL-MR3020 firmware directly (needs force update by modifying the HW ID or getting a modded FW file). The GUI was in English, majority of the functions worked fine but WPA2 didn't work in WISP mode (only WEP or simple WPA). Also the LED didn't work either. Went back to openwrt and after some additional tips (see madox.net page on WR703N) I got the wireless bridge working (and the LED lit when power on). I took it with me on a recent trip, connected my netbook to it and then connected the WAN to the hotel wifi. All my wifi devices saw their "home" wifi network and no setting change was needed. Worked for 5 days without a hitch. When first connecting the router to the hotel, the netbook showed the agreement screen - one the password entered there was no need to renter it when connecting again (the hotel sees the router as the only client).

Got back and looked at the 1st unit again.

Try this ....
-Go to this site: http://dd-wrt.com/site/support/router-database
-Search for "WR703n" (no quotes)
-When found, click on the light gray line with TP-Link WR703n
-Download: factory-to-ddwrt.bin
-Download: tl-wr703v1-webflash.bin
-Go to this site: http://www.madox.net/blog/projects/tp-link-tl-wr703n/
-Page down to "Factory Install" and read out loud the steps
- (note: native OS browser suggested, i.e. Internet Explorer, Safari instead of FF or Chrome)
-Start following the steps, beginning with step 1
-Use your sense of geometry and pattern matching along with the indentation of the left column to determine what Chinese character string option the author is illustrating (hint: the cursor arrow is the pointer to what to click on)
- in step 8, instead of specifying the ....squashsf...bin file, instead specify the file "factory-to-ddwrt.bin" you downloaded before
- in step 10, wait until your screen is finished updating (can take 10 minutes or more) and instead of seeing the software "OpenWRT" (the orange and gray menu for super techies) you will instead see a more beginner friendly (but equally powerful) screen in English called DD-WRT (black, white and blue menu)
- set your Admin ID ("root" is a good choice)
- set the password twice (anything but remember it)
- click "Administration" top line tab on dd-wrt menu
- click "Firmware Upgrade" secondary line tab on dd-wrt menu
- now enter the firmware file name window, specify the second file you downloaded before "tl-wr703v1-webflash.bin"
- wait until it is finished (did you hear that??? ....

Chinese software/web-interface can easily be replaced to an English one by installing an English OS like Openwrt. With openwrt installed the little blue router worked flawlessly as repeater for me.

One star because I bricked it when trying to install OpenWRT. Wait.... Is that because I am an idiot? Ok, ok. 5 stars because it worked great, and I WAS able to get OpenWRT installed but ended up bricking it during a subsequent install. BUT before that incident, it performed well and run OpenWRT perfectly.

Love it, but watch out if you're planning to install Open Source firmware. TP-Link has responded to the new FCC regulations by locking firmware upgrades. It may not be easy to install alternate firmware.

My guess is that the instructions are in simplified Mandarin.

I can live with that because the device is pre-flashed with dd-wrt and the original instructions are probably moot.

That being said, this thing is a techweenie-wannabe's wet dream.

It did not seem to fit my needs, but the company was very helpful, and while i ended up returning it, i think it could work under other circumstances
I'd recommend it, if you felt it would meet your needs

I would recommend this router to linux fans and DYIers, since it can be only flashed with OpenWRT, which is not a user-friendly 3rd party firmware. You can stick with the default firmware if you know chinese, because the language cannot be switched to any other language. Don't expect great coverage, since it does not have external antennas. other than that great router.
