Rated 1 out of 5 by mamadave Worst purchase
I bought this router because I needed one that could handle TV streaming. Before switching out my old router with the new one, I had internet service fine. I hooked up this router, I had to call to get it switched over through my service provider. Even though my service provider showed that the internet was going through the router, I couldn't get any computer, tablet or cell phone to get on the internet. I called TP-Link customer service. I couldn't understand the lady that was trying to assist me. I asked five times to be transferred and finally was transferred to someone I could understand. I have a satellite, so I have no inside modem. The Customer Rep wanted me to go outside to hook my computer directly to the satellite. Well, I told her that "nonsense" wasn't gonna happen. I had had it! They wouldn't take my word for what my Service Provider said was happening. I ended the call, packed the new router up, sent it back, and reconnected my old router, which is working fine, just lags like it did before. DO NOT BUY THIS ROUTER!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Madeline60 Absolutely love this!
I had to upgrade my router, so I researched a couple of them, also read reviews in different sites and this one was by far the best. I am very pleased with my purchase! very easy to install, connected like a breeze to my WiFi. I live on a two floor house and the connection upstairs is just perfect! My major thing was, not being able to connect my Roku device upstairs as the connection was extremely slow. I had blamed it on my cable company!... I was so wrong! now the internet is super fast and my Roku works like a charm! and last but not least! The shipping was super fast! I place the other and received my device in 3 days!
Rated 5 out of 5 by blstandifer Doubled my speed
I had a regular router I purchased form a local store and it made our internet very slow. It is difficult getting internet where I live so I feel lucky with what we do have. With our old router our speed tests were only 6.45 down and 1.13 up and after installing this new router our speeds jumped to 12.98 down and 2.41 up. This is the fastest speeds we've experienced where we live.
It was a bit tricky in the beginning and I kept getting the red light and no connection. However, after resetting everything it worked perfectly.

I was using an older Belkin N router and it couldn't keep up with streaming at least not with more than one device.
This router has kept up with 2-3 devices streaming and we have much better coverage now.

This router was easy to install if you follow the directions that comes with the router. It is very fast and the wireless reach a long distance. I love it. I would recommend it. Great product.
Rated 1 out of 5 by PUMA Could not connect to internet
I followed all instruction and worked on it for almost 1 hour and then called tech support which was a severe language barrier and working with them for almost 2 hrs still unable to connect to internet. I gave up re connect my old netgear and now I am back in and running-pack this router up and and hopes it finds a new home because it sure didn't like mine.): ):):
Rated 5 out of 5 by b0hemian Best Router I've Owned So Far
I did no research on this TP-LINK router but trusted QVC’s judgment. I don’t regret this purchase. My current home network was lacking in technology and needed a dual router to accommodate my new laptop (from QVC) HP Envy (running on 5Ghz) and the existing devices (all 2.4 Ghz). Once set up with a reconfigured ISP combination modem/router (the technician removed the router functionality on the ISP unit) that became just a modem (bridge), my TP-Link router perfectly executed all functions to every single device attached to the home network. What a joy this router is since my work is mostly done remotely. FAST shipping and no hidden damages in-transit; minimal packaging which I appreciate. I bought the C9 model and would recommend it to anyone with home networking.
