User reviews on

works great range is much better compared to some high priced brand names. Ted December 31, 2013
Time warner was charging us $10 in wifi fees and modem rental fee every month( wifi fee???..they are nuts) they were providing a cable modem with built in wifi but range was so short, i had to invest in couple of repeaters just to get wifi on second level.
I purchased ARRIS / Motorola SB6121 for cable modem, and bought this router for wifi. For the price i was not expecting anything solid but so many positive reviews made me go ahead with this purchase.
I am glad i bought this router as not even without the repeater i have strong signal not only in second floor but also the attic in the third floor gets strong wifi bars.
This is a solid wifi router.

$20 for this wireless router? Its as good as or better than my $150 Cisco/Linksys E4200. Really simple setup. Finally, someone took the big manufacturers to task for being overpriced.

WARNING: DO NOT TRUST THESE REVIEWS. skintigh (SA, TX) March 15, 2014
The reviews you are reading are most likely not for the product you are looking at [or maybe they are, see edit2]. At least 3 different products have had their reviews all dumped together here, and there are multiple versions of each of those 3 different products. Each of those products has different chipsets, CPUs, flash chips and RAM, and even between version 8 and version 9 of one the N300 2T2R they used an entirely different brands of CPU, chipset, etc.

Be sure to verify you are reading a review of the EXACT model you are looking at. I just bought a N300 2T2R hoping to upgrade it to dd-wrt, but it is v9 and dd-wrt only supports N300 2T2R (TL-WR841N) v8.

Edit: v9 may be supported now?

When I wrote this review there was no support and no plans to support TL-WR841N v9, and the "reason" was v9 was a "China-only model," which it clearly is not. Since then several commenters have posted that support has been added and it is (partially?) working for them. However, when I go to [...]and a search for TL-WR841N version 9 support doesn't come up. Personally, I returned this unit and bought another, and then turned a EeeBook into a router when I got impatient waiting for it to arrive, so I can't comment from personal experience.

Edit 2:

Amazon may have fixed the issue with the reviews being mixed together, I'm not sure how to confirm this. It can't hurt to double check as you read reviews.

I also wanted to say that the 3 stars was due to the review mix-up and the version/hackability issue of the router I ordered. I have no other complaints, so if you are planning to use this router as-is with stock firmware consider this a 5 star review. RCN gave me one of these when I signed up for service and it's worked great. Rarely it needs rebooting, but that may be the modem's fault.

Great product for the price! ROBERT W. January 12, 2014
Can't beat the price/performance ratio.
