  • Risky purchase
    Reviewed by  - January 13, 2020

    First one started going into continuous reset cycles after about 3 days. Exchanged for a 2nd one thinking that I might have just drawn the inevitable dud. The second one lasted for about a month and a half, then started locking up after a few hours of being turned on. It required a hard reset to get it going again. This router runs HOT! even without a load. Luckily, with the timing of my purchase I was able to take advantage of the extended Christmas return window. I exchanged this for the Asus RT-AX88U. WOW what a difference! The Asus is easily worth twice the price. Better performance and much better signal coverage. The Asus isn't just "more" reliable, it "IS" reliable (as a router should be.)

  • Advanced features require app
    Reviewed by  - November 10, 2019

    Good price for a Wi-Fi 6 router... setup was easy and experienced no problems swapping out from an old router. Good range and speed, but we really didn't push the boundaries. My compliant is with the advanced features such as parental controls, QoS, and anti-virus. Those features require a phone app and cannot be administered from the standard (local) configuration web-page. The app wants, effectively, full permissions... I'm not sure why QoS settings, or any other router admin, would require access to my location, camera etc. No thanks.

  • Dubious tactics from TP Link
    Reviewed by  - November 21, 2019

    + Decent coverage, reasonable(ish) price, Wi-fi configs on the firmware aren't awfully basic like many routers - File transfer performance is kind of mediocre, sluggish firmware ----- Basic function of QoS is walled off and can only be accessed through phone app after your register for HomeCare with TP-Link id; yes, your new router can't be fully controlled by browser access, they want your data if you want to use features in your router that you already paid for. Absolutely rubbish.
