I purchased this router for my parents after their Netgear that was several years old started having problems. I was looking for a Wireless N router that would work well in their large house where they could put it in the utility area. This one fit the bill perfectly and was very inexpensive.
Our 5 year old netgear router was starting to flake out and having trouble staying connected to our ISP. So, I decided it was time to upgrade. First off, problem solved. Connected once since I installed the router and has stayed connected ever since. Love (!!) the Guest wireless feature. Don't have any 5ghz wireless-n devices, so I really haven't tried that yet, but streaming Netflix to the xbox is soo much faster than over 802.11g. Worst thing I can say about this router is the blue LED's in a ring on the side blink with network activity. Sure it's cool looking, but when the room is dark it's irritating. Maybe there's a way to turn them off, but I haven't figured it out yet.
At first this excited about the router, it worked fine the first day. But now the wireless internet drops every minute on my laptop, I have to keep it connected to ethernet, the signal does not travel far at 6 meters in my case and lost. Very disappointed with this product.
works great fast and easy setup i would recommend for the price works well ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Bought this router for my home use. It does what it supposed to do. Decent and strong signal. Signal looses on the corners of this house. Setup was easy and user friendly. Fashionable design , Do not look like a router at all. Very good built Recommended for all.
I had problem of using my old router, unable to connect my ipad to the network. After changing to this TP Link rounter. It is so much better, and I can connect to the internet. It also seems faster than before. I will recommend to anyone who might need to change a router!
I have been very pleased with this inexpensive Wi-Fi router. It was ridiculously easy to install and set up according to my security needs. The signal strength is extremely good and the coverage area is well beyond my expectations. I give it my highest rating for a residential router. BTW, it comes with a good quality Ethernet cable for wall connection.
This is a descent router, bought it for my daughter to use in her apartment while in grad-school. The firmware that comes with it is not that great. So, I installed OpenWRT firmware and the router is more reliable and has a lot more options in the settings.

TL-WR841N 300 Mbps Wireless-N Router
At a Glance:
Wireless transmission speeds of up to 300 Mbps
MIMO and CCA technology for optimal wireless performance
Four interior interchangeable 10/100 Mbps ports
QoS for VoIP calls and other high-bandwidth applications
Quick Secure Setup function for wireless network security
The 300 Mbps Wireless-N Router offers wireless transmission speeds of up to 300 Mbps and complies with the IEEE 802.11n standard. MIMO (Multi Input Multi Output) technology delivers improved wireless transmission rates and stability, while two omnidirectional antennas are designed to provide optimal wireless performance, transmission rates, stability, and coverage.
It shows more excellent abilities of mitigating data loss over long distances and through obstacles in a small office or a large apartment, even in a steel-and-concrete building. Above all, you could easily pick up the wireless network during long-distance connection where legacy 11g products may not! This also means the router has the speed to work smoothly with almost any bandwidth intensive application including VoIP, HD streaming, or online gaming, without the lag.
Using its channel selection feature, CCA technology automatically avoids channel conflicts and promotes high wireless transmission performance in long-distance and high-interference environments.
In addition to its wireless capabilities, the Wireless-N Router has four interior interchangeable 10/100 Mbps ports, allowing you to connect up to four computers directly to the router.
QSS Provides Worry-Free Wireless Security
The router's QSS (Quick Secure Setup) function complies with the WPS standard to ensure the security of your wireless network. A built-in firewall features IP, MAC, and URL filtering to flexibly control online access and time.
The Wireless-N Router also supports SSID broadcast control, MAC address access control, WEP encryption, WPA/WPA2, and WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK authentication. These combined security measures are designed to deliver stronger, safer protection and guard against intruders.
On-Demand Dialing, Online Access, and More
This Wireless-N Router supports on-demand dialing, online access management, automatic virus isolation, Universal Plug and Play protocols, and Dynamic DNS, and has an advanced system security record.
A user-friendly software interface enables all users to easily configure the router and supports free web-based software updates.
Quality Service without Interruptions
Among the wireless network, indiscriminate Internet surfing and bandwidth-guzzling downloads by internal users often leave home or small office with insufficient bandwidth. This router supports the IP QoS function, allowing optimum utilization of bandwidth and offers bandwidth control over congestion, preventing the bandwidth abuse. In this way, the users of a small network receive committed and specific bandwidth, preventing non-critical applications from degrading network performance.
Powerful Parental Controls for Safe Browsing
Integrated parental control functions allow for precise control over children's Internet activities, including restricting certain websites and limiting the amount of time spent on the Internet. The simple web-based interface makes setting schedules and adding new computers a quick and easy process.
The device comes with a CD with an Easy Setup Assistant that leads you through the setup process step-by-step, and even helps with wireless network settings and security configurations, which is convenient to the users, especially for novice users.
