Customer Reviews of TP-LINK TL-WR2543ND 450Mbps Dual-Band Wireless N Gigabit Router
I have only used it for a week or so but it seems to be faster and stay online much better that my old one. New devices are much easier to add the the network.
Great wireless product for home or office
great seller, great product6/21/2012
very happy with my purchase
Finally, other than Trendnet provide wireless Rout6/5/2012
Excellent product from TP Link with speed 450 Mbps, the speed is super excellent (Trendnet will issue 1.3 Mbps maybe next year, but the price will be expensive), but this product's setting only 2.4 Ghz (DEFAULT SETTING) in order to be recognize (Radio ON) wirelessly by other device such as notebook etc, If the setting change to 5 Ghz, the SSID did not appear. Maybe tech support could solve this problem, why they provide 5 Ghz for stability connection if does not work (Does not make sense right ? ) I wish tech support from TP Link explain it to me. contact me : email@example.com. The good thing about this product beside speed is come with detachable antenna (so you can extend the coverage radius of your wifi hot spot), you can replace with stronger Dbi antenna that sell on the market, such as Hawkings Tech, or other, that you can extend wire SMA to outside your building, so from far away you could connect your own Router Wifi or you can add access point too.
Very Poor Security Password Capability / IP6/4/2012
Security limitation on passwords is a joke! The device it self is a good value but the limitation of 15 & no special characters for passwords severely hurts this device. Myself working in the IT Security, security for passwords, user accounts & IP manipulation I give it a thumbs down. TP go back to the kitchen and revamp the firmware to improve these features. For now I'll stick w/ my old Airlink wireless router.
We had a little trouble getting this router to send the internet signal to our laptops. It took several hours and I finally called the help number that came with the router. They were very nice and helped me figure out it must be something to do with our laptops. I can't remember what we finally did to get to work, but I don't think it had anything to do with the router itself. It works beautifully now and we're pleased.
