Steve, South Africa. 11 September 2015

Absolute junk. Tried to get a second networkd to route through it to the Internet without any luck. TP-Link support also useless, as they still haven't come back to me. I am about to ask Takealot for a refund.

Trevor B, South Africa. 1 November 2015

Great all round performer for the price. Setup easy. Well worth the money.

Willem, South Africa. 1 June 2017

Setup is fairly simple with all the basic functions.
The WiFi range however is very bad and sometimes just stops broadcasting the SSID.
Very slow connecting WiFi devices.

Great if you plan to only connect using LAN, but it is not even stable enough to handle 2 pc's and 4 phones.

Japie, South Africa. 28 January 2015

Bang for Buck! Was a bit skeptical at first with the low price but works beautifully. Easy setup and a 1TB external 2.5 inch works well with the built-in media server and FTP server. WiFi range is impressive as well.

Michael, South Africa. 7 August 2014

Excellent router, especially for such a good price. Works far better than the D-link and Billionton routers I was using before. Wi-fi range is also very good - much better than I am used to. Top product.

Barry, South Africa. 19 December 2014

For the features you get and the price you pay its a good deal. Only thing is I must have gotten one of the bad ones.
Randomly, my internet will drop although all the lights stay on and it says link still up. 30 seconds later it works again.
Tried restoring factory settings, firmware upgrade, problem still persists. Google search shows that if def has this problem
with no fix yet. (second time I'm typing this internet dropped the first time)

Frans, South Africa. 27 February 2015

Very good little router for the price. Easy set-up, removable antennae a big plus. Can't fault it.

elrick, South Africa. 28 October 2014

Best router ever

Jason, South Africa. 30 May 2014

An excellent piece of equipment, and I have to say that the Takealot price is the best I could find in South Africa.

Julian, South Africa. 11 November 2016

For the price, I would say it's a best buy. It works exactly how it should and the upside is that it comes with a 3 year warranty incase you run into some trouble.

Adriaan, South Africa. 6 June 2014

Easy to use and very good range.

FC, South Africa. 18 September 2015

WiFi speed drops 3 to 4 times a day to about 25% of normal speed. Need to switch Modem off/on to get the correct speed again.

France, South Africa. 24 February 2015

The router was very easy to install. Not more than 10 minutes on ethernet and wireless setup and I am not an expert. Extremely satisfied.

Gerry, South Africa. 18 December 2014

Easy to set up, and works like a dream.

Mooniq, South Africa. 6 August 2014

Easy to setup (I'm an average computer user). Works well, my WIFI range has increased. Really good value for the price.

Barry, South Africa. 30 May 2014

Very hard to fault this ADSL Router, given the price point. Replaced my 11-year old Mega 100WR with this router and managed to finally sync full-on, and rock-stable, at 10Mb/s. Very straightforward to set up with the ability to configure nearly all aspects of the device on a granular level.

Zunayde, South Africa. 31 October 2014

Brilliant device for the price, great Wi-Fi signal. Many features for a router in this price range. Would recommend.

Brian, South Africa. 9 June 2014

Served with excellent. Delivered before due date, no worries, no stress. Thank you.

George, South Africa. 22 May 2017

good value for money

Mk786, South Africa. 17 February 2015

Great product for the price. performs decently. overall worth my money

Bilal Cassim, South Africa. 21 August 2017

useless junk , always loses comnection

Tim, South Africa. 25 February 2015

I've had it now for a few months and it works great. I can't say that I have had any issues. It was easy to set up and manage. My only bit of upset was that I was hoping it would give wider covereage in my house than my old modem/router (a very old MWeb Billion one), but it hasn't really made much of a difference on that front.

Gerald, South Africa. 18 July 2017

I've been unable to use my 3G vodacom dongle with this router. Are there any suggestions that can be offered?

Werner, South Africa. 8 June 2017

Wifi signal drops intermittently and speed reduces to approximately 25% requiring a reboot of the device to bring speeds back up to 100%. At first I assumed that I must have gotten a dud, but I am now on my second one (after the first one completely stopped working after 3 months and was replaced) and I am experiencing the exact same problem. Rather avoid to avoid frustrations.

Luhann, South Africa. 17 May 2017


Lisl, South Africa. 8 June 2017

Only been a week but so far so good, no complaints.

Andries, South Africa. 7 December 2016

The best summary is probably: cheap'n'cheerful, does all the basics and quite easy to set up. Scores well on value-for-money and/or being parentals-friendly.
While it advertises being able to do IP filtering, it only filters outgoing traffic... a very odd choice. I want to limit the address ranges/blocks for incoming traffic to mitigate those non-stop password hacking attempts against the router.
It has stuff like print server and media server enabled by default. Not great for security out of the box.

Mark, South Africa. 20 July 2015

Excellent value for money, 3G fail over seamless

Nicholas, South Africa. 12 March 2015

I cannot fault it. It was easy to setup, has far more features than I could ever imagine (go check out the user manual on TP-Link's web site). Wi-Fi and ADSL have been solid, no dropped connections on either.

Hetty, South Africa. 15 February 2017

N300 router at a great price.

Gareth, South Africa. 24 March 2017

A good router at a reasonable price. Does everything is says

Pieter, South Africa. 16 January 2017

Great product, struggled a little with the usb hard drive connection.

Carel, South Africa. 8 December 2016

Router is working great, the included POT filter on the other hand is terrible.
All and All, great little Router for the Price tag.

Ryan, South Africa. 1 September 2015

Great product! Works just fine out of the box and on the plus side, comes with it's own splitter.

Mohammed-Zaheer, South Africa. 16 January 2017

Good modem easy to setup I wish the WiFi range was better than my 1year old modem that I replaced but all in all a better modem than I had.

Brodwyn, South Africa. 6 March 2017

It worked well at first, but the connections started to become unstable after 3 weeks and reached a peak with the connection dropping every couple minutes. Checked with service provider and their network was fine. Tried another modem and it worked fine. So it was this router, confirmed by some people on online forums describing the same problem

Willem, South Africa. 6 January 2017

Great for the price. ADSL not as stable on a bad line as other routers.
WPS works perfectly, and the setup is easy. Nice port forwarding for my servers and tons of statistics. No complaints on the WiFi, devices connect every time without a hitch.
Overall a good router for the home

Danie, South Africa. 14 January 2017

Happy with the product at this price.

Mohamed, South Africa. 13 January 2017

Excellent router that works well.

Adriaan, South Africa. 24 November 2016

Great router with easy setup and value for money. Took me less than 10 minutes from opening the box until WiFi was running.

Vincent, South Africa. 7 December 2016

Had one of these routers for the past 5 years and never had a days crap with it never dropped connections. Had to buy another as lightening hit my first one. not to prcey and works well.

Terry, South Africa. 3 March 2015

Super easy setup. Love that it is accessible from a web browser with a simple URL.
The USB port really works like a dream. Was able to share media from a 2.5" external that was also being powered through the USB port, within a minute. Easily accessible from my PS3, as well as my Xperia Z1 and Galaxy Tab 3 using BubbleUPnP.

All the other standard features also work really well. Really amazing product for a super affordable price.

Larissa, South Africa. 31 January 2017

Great product

Brian, South Africa. 26 June 2014

Bought this device - excellent so far. Would recommend it. I haven't tested most of the features, but it certainly has more than I need for the home.

Peter, South Africa. 12 June 2015

small, good range, stays cool,
It friends with my studio: pc, iMac, hp printer.
but has a love hate relationship with my macmini. (maybe Yosemite fault but Mac mini has no problem connecting to any other hotspot)
we use a VKom usb modem attached, no problem setup is easy (for me)

Jaco, South Africa. 16 January 2017

Not going to get much better for that price. Using mine with a 3G dongle and it works just fine!
manual or quick start guide could be better.

Francois, South Africa. 13 February 2015

Pretty reliable and plenty of features in the firmware. Solid buy for the household user. Not appropriate for professional office uses due to short reception on the WiFi. Allot of modem for little money.

Asha, South Africa. 2 March 2017


Trevor, South Africa. 7 December 2016

Great product for the price - does what it says!

Paul, South Africa. 7 December 2016

At the price it is a great buy. It is easy to set up once you get past the situation that South Africa is not listed on the set up menu. The Wi-Fi and ADSL connection quality is good.

Gustav, South Africa. 4 April 2017

Easy set up, works as advertised.

Nigel, South Africa. 28 January 2017

The absolute worst, Stay away.
Randomly reboots and drops internet connection

Vulani, South Africa. 2 November 2017

When I bought the 3G moderm setup wasn't working
