Here's my experience with it thus far.
Reception is solid. I get five bars on my MBPro from about 100ft away with two walls in between. I plan on using this primarily in hotel rooms, so I have no concerns that I'll get full coverage wherever I stay. I experienced no hiccups while browsing the web.
You can change the SSID and password (wasn't sure if you had to use the default one printed on the router). Strangely, my network adapter on my PC (Linksys WUSB600N) wouldn't detect the default SSID, but once I changed the name, I was able to see and connect to the router without a problem.
You can also choose whether to enable DHCP, IP address range, static IP's (by MAC address), and lease time. You can also restrict access to the router by MAC address.
The various modes seem to work as well (access point, router, repeater, bridge, and client), but I use this primarily as an AP.
Supports the typical encryption settings for wifi (none, WEP, WPA, WPA2).
Pretty straightforward set of features you'd expect on any basic router. I'm glad they didn't skimp on any of the core features.
They clearly took a cue from Apple's design and modeled it somewhat after the Airport Express. Even the packaging is elegant and very Apple-esque. It's a sturdy, small plastic case with a swivel out plug. I wish you could swap the plug with a corded plug like you can with the Airport Express, but I'm being nit-picky. A simple extension cord will solve the problem.
Note, my router came with English instructions and seems to be packaged for American markets. It also came with firmware 4.18.16 (build 110810) which is the latest version (as of June 2012).
A solid travel router for a very reasonable price.
Everything was great, but my cellphone had a little trouble getting Wi-Fi signal to the far reaches of the house. This little device took care of that.
I took it out of the box, plugged it into an outlet, connected my $49 Kindle Fire to it using the password on the little business card that came in the box. Logged into the admin page using the info that was on the same card. Chose "repeater mode" and entered the password for my cellphone's hotspot, then let it reboot-- and that was it. Done.
So simple that a monkey could almost do it.
I then plugged our Magic Jack into the Ethernet port on the bottom and connected our house phone and fax to it. So now the house phone runs through it and the cellphone hotspot.
In four minutes everything was up and going without even reading the directions.
Now I can sit out on the patio with my Kindle and connect to the internet through my cellphone inside. Video streams fine through it. It works perfectly.
For that price I'm going to buy a few spares to keep on hand.
First to be clear, what is the difference between an Access Point and a Router? A router lets multiple devices (Wifi, cable or both) share an Internet Line like a cable or DSL modem. The router provides all the functions to make this happen. An AP does NOT connect directly to a modem or like device. It REQUIRES that what you connect to a line that already has the functionality of some kind of LAN routing device like a router port. The AP has more limited functionality. It simply allows multiple devices (wifi only in this case) to share a single router port or similar type connection. It has less functionality than a router so is dependent on there already being a router behind it.
This device can also act as a number of other device types as the description details. There is also much more information on the TP-Link web site. Go there before buying if you want this to do anything other than use this as a default AP device.
If you do want to access the administration menu to do anything, it does not access like most other routers. Most routers work fine if your computer LAN poert is set to automatic IP and DNIS addressing . Because auto-DNS can cause problems sometimes on wide area networks like in a Hotel or large business, the addressing is static and you have to change your LAN port to a specific configuration if you want to access the menus on this device. That wouldn't bee too hard if their support web site or user manual was up to date and accurate. It is not. The support FAQs for this device haven't been updated since Windows Vista and the User Manual since Windows XP. In addition the instructions and FAQs give you a number of IP addresses to connect to this device and only one works. I documented the steps for Windows 7 and will provide them below. In addition, if you want your Ethernet port to work with other devices you might connect after you are done, you will have to change the configuration back when done.
How to access administration menu:
Disable Wifi:(there must be no other network connections live)
Control Panel>Network and Internet>Network and Sharing Center>Change Adapter Settings>Local Area Connection (right click-properties)>Internet Protocol Version 4>Properties>Use the following IP Address: 192.168.0.10>Subnet Mask 255.255.0.0>OK.
Use browser to log in to cable connected device at 192.168.0.254>admin-admin.
Control Panel>Network and Internet>Network and Sharing Center>Change Adapter Settings>Local Area Connection (right click-properties)>Internet Protocol Version 4>Properties>Obtain IP Address Automatically>OK.
This reverts Ethernet Port back to normal.
You are done. Once logged in to this device, it configures like any other router. There is no simplified user configuration interface, so don't go there if you aren't familiar with router configurations. The Quick Setup menu link in the Main Menu lets you set a few of the basic things, but that is all. Don't go any further if you do not know what you are doing. Worst case and you get it to where it doesn't work, hold down the reset button for 30 seconds, not 5 seconds like the manual says. It will revert to factory defaults again.
A note on telephone support: If you can eventually get through, they are superb!!! Knowledgeable, patient and English speaking.
