Obviously, we're all somewhat advanced users, but even someone who had never used Linux/configured a router/played with networking was able to get his all set in about 20 minutes.
I simply downloaded Open-WRT(later tried DD-WRT)and flashed using the instructions here - [...]
This allowed me to A) Have complete control over my router and B) ENGLISH!
I used it as an AP (access point) connected to the switch at our hackerspace (had to turn off DHCP so that it wouldn't try routing all traffic through itself) and had fine reception... From about 3 feet away. Haven't tested how far the WiFi will stretch in my house, but I understand it won't be very far since this is admittedly a low powered device without an external antenna.
I'm setting it up as a NAS (Network Attached Storage) to stream audio/video to my XBMC powered original XBox, please comment so I'll be notified if you want to know how it functions.
So all of my uses may seem a bit advanced for what originally was designed just for a mobile router for a 3G usb dongle.
If you want a wireless access point to cover your house, this isn't for you.
If you want something easy for someone not at all versed in configuring an AP, this isn't for you.
Finally, if you want customer support and replacements if you break something, this device is not for you.
Buy this if you love to tinker.
Buy this if you need to have an extra WiFi AP available anytime/anywhere.
Buy this if you want a cheap and low power NAS.
Buy this if you want to learn network configuration/firmware flashing without fear of breaking your existing network.
Buy this if you want to have a public network for people visiting your home without giving full access to your own network.
Buy this if you want to have a pretty paperweight should you break it.
Finally, buy this if you consider yourself a technically inclined person. If you can flash/configure/use this and know what's going on, all you need are grammatical skills to complete the illusion of a networking guru... Well, at least on Amazon reviews.
As a router, it functions great but there isn't a ton of range because the antenna is just a small strip of copper on the CB. Plug a 3g stick into it and give it a power source and you have a cheap MiFi that isn't bottle necked by number of users.
It's a 4-star product with a 1 star seller. The hardware itself is worth the price, and the form factor is amazing (it's REALLY small). From http://wiki.openwrt.org/toh/tp-link/tl-wr703n:
Atheros AR7240 CPU (400Mhz)
Atheros AR9331 Chipset (integrated wireless)
802.11 b/g/n 150Mbps (130Mbps real)
wireless power output 20dBm - 100mW
4 MB flash memory (can be modified for 16MB)
32 MB RAM (can be modified for 64MB)
USB 2.0 port (High-Speed only, use an external High-Speed hub for Full/Low-Speed devices)
Powered via micro-USB socket
Tiny form factor: 5.7cm x 5.7cm x 1.8cm"
There is a way to get OpenWRT on to this router with minimal effort and some google skills, but I'm sure Amazon's policies would prevent this review from being published if I provided the instructions.
To Amazon: Please look into this seller for false advertising. I consider myself very technically inclined and I was furious when it arrived both without DD-WRT pre-installed and as a version that's officially incompatible with OpenWRT. I was minutes from starting the return when I found another method of getting OpenWRT loaded, and even so it doesn't make it officially supported by OpenWRT.
The power consumption is where this unit really shines. It draws between 80 and 120ma. This is less than half of most competing models. For a while, I ran this off a battery and solar panel.
