NO SETUP SOFTWARE FOR MAC OS!!!
, June 28, 2012
This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WR740N Wireless N150 Home Router,150Mpbs, IP QoS, WPS Button (Personal Computers)
As for the quality of the router, I am unable to say. While reading the Quick Installation Guide I discovered that the setup software on the provided CD was for windows only. The guide stated, "If you are running Linux/Mac or without a CD-ROM, please refer to Appendix 1." I flipped over the page to find that Appendix 1 had absolutely no information for mac users at all, but was simply more instructions for windows users to set up without a CD. Sorry mac users, you need to go find a friend with windows (or use bootcamp or whatever) to help you set up your router, because you simply can not do it from mac os. Boo TP-Link. Booo!
Turns out there is a way to set it up manually through Mac OS, but it does not explain this ANYWHERE in the manual or on the company website. Had to get tech support to explain what to do.
I've been up and running for several days now and I have noticed that this router tends to drop out about once a day requiring a reset. When it works it works fine, but overall I am not too pleased.
