works as expected; easy to set up and great performance

My R1500 Netgear got hit by lightning, this TP-Link is way cheaper but has all the same features! Works exactly how I expected. I needed MAC address access so only specified devices can connect, and Port filtering for my IP cameras so I can log in using No-ip web address. Excellent router

Great Router, excellent value for money. Very good WiFi signal strength. Very easy to setup. I have connected at least different 9 Wifi device connected at once, with no issues at all. works perfectly on my 10Mbps ADSL line, and can go upto 20Mbpm (if I upgrade my line).

Only lasted 10 months. After that everyday it will lose connection then it must be restarted.

My siemens lasted me 8 years. Very poor quality components used here.

Great Product

Not sure that the ADSL connectivity is all that great and stable compared to the Billion which it replaced and a very old Linksys N150 which I use as a backup. But it works.

Such a good quality products and has great range.

Easy to set up. Haven't had to switch it on and off like my old one. Very happy

Very light and neat, wifi reach very strong.My last router lasted 7 years before signal got weak hope this lasts as long.

Fantastic little router for the price. Works perfectly. Very nice wizard to get you going quick. Worth every penny!

Lasted just short of a year.

Works perfectly, I am very happy with this router.

Compared to other routers I've used in the past... This one is pretty not cool at everything...

Product working well.

The TP-LINK 4-Port Wireless ADSL2+ Router is a basic, bottom of the range router. But don't let that put you off. If all you need is a way to share your ADSL connection at home on your 100Mbps network and via basic WiFi, then this is perfect. It's inexpensive, yet it gets the job done more than adequately.

The WiFi speed is 300Mbps, which is fine for home use. I connect 6 devices to the WiFi on most days and have experienced no problem.

I've discovered some niggles, though. The user interface of the configuration page looks a bit dated. And finding the area in the config page where one sets up port forwarding (or virtual servers) was a bit tricky. It's buried withing menus and options enough to have made me open the help documents. So it's not too user-friendly. But this normally only needs to be setup once and then not tampered with again too often, so I don't mind it.

Also, for some weird reason, the config page doesn't allow me to login if I'm using Firefox. After entering the username and password, the page refreshes and stays on the login screen. If I switch to Edge, it logs in as one would expect. I haven't tried other browsers. But, again, I don't really mind because changing the configuration of the router isn't something that happens every month. It normally gets left alone once the initial setup is done.

For the price, this is a good buy. If you need faster WiFi performance, opt for something in a higher price bracket.

Excellent value for money!

Excellent product, Setup was done in less than 5 minutes. No more dead spots in my house, the duel antenna is definitely worth it.

Great value for money router. No frills, it just works exactly as it should.

Easy to set up, and does what it needs to.

Easy setup but drops connectivity. Had to replace with another router

Got this to replace an old TP-LINK router at home, so the installation was really, really easy. Works like a charm too... does what it says on the box. As far as entry-level routers go, this is a really good product at a very strong pricepoint.

Router works perfectly and the WiFi range is incredible! Very easy to setup and is very reliable!

Great product.
Easy installation.
No troubles!

Great value for money little router. Bought this for someone else, but I have been using the same router for 6 months without issues.


Easy to setup and nice features for the price.

Excellent value for the price with a decent WiFi range and good stability, I'm very impressed, thank you Takealot

Device works brilliantly

Great product!

Works perfectly. Paired it with my extender and now have full signal even in the bathroom. It was very easy to set up and did not even have to phone my provider to help link to my internet package. That's how easy it was.

Great product for it's price.
Initial setup is very easy. The interface to configure the more specialised functionality is pretty confusing but an average user would never need to do that.

We we're experiencing loss in connection with our lines and I needed to have a spare router to test.

We found out that our lines were faulty, due to the rains.

It's good to have a backup router for testing!

Great product-Strong consistent signal and easy set up.

Been working well, and the WIFI range has definitely increased over the lame ass Mweb FON router which they give out for free. Also, this seems a lot more stable, and most definitely quicker, smoother browsing.

MWEB told me their FON routers do not slow you down due to sharing the line with other users, but I must definitely say that either they are lying, as or their FON router is just really bad and slow.

This product was a good buy for me indeed.

It's working as expected and it s easy to set up (after I remembered that I first had to connect it to my computer with a network cable and input the parameters of my service provider). The WiFi also has a much wider reach than the D-link had that got moered by lightning. Where I previously considered adding a WiFi extender to extend the reach of the D-Link, it is not necessary at all with this router. Just use a strong password so that the people in the street don't use up your data.

Easy to set up. Fast wireless.

I never do Reviews, but this modem/router solved ALL my ADSL line and WiFi drop issues instantly (basically duplicated all the old settings, SSID, passwords, etc.) - Telkom connection has now been up (and rock solid) for a week, after the old Netgear disconnected Many times a day. Quick Start setup should suffice for most people. WiFi signal a tad stronger, but married well with a Huawei Repeater also.

To get PPPoE ADSL dialup (half bridge) set up, was a bit tricky though (had to reset to Factory Settings twice) - Interface Setup > Virtual Circuit: PVC4 (set up by Wizard/QuickStart by default) ISP: PPPoA/PPPoE (NOT Bridge Mode), Bridge Interface: Activated.

Very happy so far, and Great value for money indeed!

Router worked well but WIFI light packed up after 4 days couldn't see if it was on or off unless you where in a very dark room.Well it was a shop soiled/returned one which I got cheaper.

Much improved experience to my old telkom router. Signal is further, and does not need to be rebooted daily.

Very happy as its value for money. Quick installation and great wifi range.

It literally took me 5 minutes to set up my TP-Link modem after plugging it in etc. For the price, this is a fantastic device and meets all my needs for home and business superbly. I have used modems for a long time now and this is by far the best!

Very easy to use and set up. So far a very good reliable product for it price! Would definitely recommend it.

Easy to setup.

Great quality for the price. The only downside is the lights on the mouse and keyboard which can't be switched off. Other than that, well worth the price I think

Easy to install, fast connection, and broad coverage throughout my home. A great buy!

Works GREAT! Sofar (after 1 week) I am very happy with it. Took awhile to setup, but then I have a very complicated (and secure) internet setup. Wifi coverage so much better than my previous router, almost making my extender obsolete!

Great Router. Works as expected.

Easy to set up and works perfectly.

Great device. Wifi coverage great!

Quick and easy setup. Good WiFi range. Good looking


So far so good. Had a 2005 Telkom modem, and this TP link is an awesome upgrade. Super fast WiFi and Ethernet. Really impressed. WiFi signal is strong, full signal in the back of the house through lots of walls and closed door.

works well

No wds, no support.

Very nice, no issues with this device

Works very well Wifi range good. Easy to setup

Well priced and functions well. Configuring is a breeze.

Set-up time using laptop +- 20 minutes and for a non IT guru like me, pretty simple. Also connected a TP link extender and took only a few seconds. Very happy with the wifi signal throughout the house.

Works well. Good coverage.


Excellent product. Highly recommended.

keeps dropping Wi-Fi signal. very bad.

Great Wifi but terrible built in virtual server. major security risk for hosting any games or similar at home.

Great price. perfect for home adsl. cannot ask for more

Quick and easy to set up, if you have configed similar devices before
Works as expected
Documentation not great

Does the job

Satisfied with this product.

Very happy, it doesn't disconnect or anything weird like the telkom routers.

Great product and works like a dream for the price.
ADSL2 and WiFi is stable with great coverage.
Able to stream HD content without issues.

Security settings could be more intuitive (is remote access allowed, is ICMP allowed, port-forwarding)

Excellent value for money and greater coverage.

Good signal, good connection and many devices can connect to internet without any trouble.

Good quality & value.

What a fantastic router. Has a coverage about 40 meters away from my home. Even routers costing 4 times more could not give me a signal 10 metres from my house. Very very easy setup.

Easy setup, so far so good, signal strength decent.

Great router. Does what it needs to. Great buy.

Awesome product, does exactly what it say it will. Looks very nice, i love the design. I will most def recommend this product.

Easy to install - works well
Really happy with the purchase - good value for money

Very Nice, but not very user friendly.

Very easy to setup and works well.

i don't regret my decision. fast internet @ a good price

Great product

Perfect value for money.

This router is bad, always buffer on youtube, buffers google browser on my phone, does not download my updates. NOT A GOOD PRODUCT!!!.

Thanks very good product

Excellent product especially the set-up instructions...

So far so good working extremely well

All the essential features for home use (small private network: LAN + WiFi printing, smartphone, laptop etc.). Easy setup and a good price.
Pleased with my purchase.

Great product, very friendly to set up and use. It presents itself also very nice, with a nice modern look. :)

Great product,great price. Really couldn't have asked for better

Does the job well and easy to set up.

great value, easy setup, good range

Only had it about a week and no issues
Very easy to setup and I normally struggle with these things
Wifi range is better then my previous router
Happy all round as long as it doesn't break.

Despite the negative and positive reviews...this unit does perform well...

Nice product

Excellent value for money

I've connected the ADSL Router and it's working good so far. I could even recommend the item to someone who require product.

Not bad

Can't believe an ADSL Router so cheap can do such a great job! The range on this thing is insane. Most homes won't need Range extenders because the signal is so powerful on this thing. Buy this router now while the the price is still low.

Nice unit, easy to setup. I've had no issues so far.

Works like a charm, best choice i made.

Worked well at first, had to keep resseting after a while to access wifi. Stopped working 7 months in, right after the 6 month warranty.

Perfect for my requirement

I have not used the router as yet since its either an issue with telkom converting the line or with the router itself however I will inform you As soon as possible should it be returned.

It's V2 hardware with 2015 firmware but there's a V3 out already that's listed on the tplink website. Either way this one does the job.

Great Router and ADSL Modem. Glad I upgraded to this model.

Appears to be absolutely fine for my home use - have only started today, but the speed is good and the reception covers the whole area where it is required.

So far the best router I've ever used.

very good for the price
