Manoj, South Africa. 9 August 2016

works as expected; easy to set up and great performance

Bryan, South Africa. 25 October 2016

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

Paulo, South Africa. 3 December 2016

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).

ARSHAD, South Africa. 19 August 2017

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.

Annette, South Africa. 9 September 2016

Great Product

Peter, South Africa. 2 November 2016

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.

Michela Paola, South Africa. 19 April 2017

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

Ingrid, South Africa. 9 August 2016

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

Lated 2 days short of a year, South Africa. 29 November 2017

Lasted just short of a year.

Andrew, South Africa. 7 November 2016

Works perfectly, I am very happy with this router.

Jay, South Africa. 1 January 2017

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

Brynne, South Africa. 30 June 2016

Product working well.

Alan, South Africa. 22 November 2016

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.

Nicole D, South Africa. 21 December 2016

Excellent value for money!

Pieter, South Africa. 30 December 2016

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

Jaco, South Africa. 23 November 2016

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

Lyle, South Africa. 26 October 2016

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

happy gmolly, South Africa. 22 March 2017

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

Lawrence, South Africa. 22 September 2016

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.

Ronald, South Africa. 4 March 2017

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

Aziza, South Africa. 14 November 2016

Great product.
Easy installation.
No troubles!

Willie, South Africa. 6 April 2017

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


Stephan, South Africa. 8 November 2016

Easy to setup and nice features for the price.

Michael, South Africa. 22 November 2016

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

Valeen, South Africa. 6 July 2016

Device works brilliantly

Janine, South Africa. 21 December 2016

Great product!

Cheney, South Africa. 11 August 2016

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.

Russel, South Africa. 18 October 2016

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.

Ahmed, South Africa. 18 November 2016

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!

Muhammed, South Africa. 17 September 2016

Great product-Strong consistent signal and easy set up.

Chien-Hung, South Africa. 29 December 2016

Great router - MUCH better and MUCH faster than the free router Mweb gave out about a year ago (their FON router).

Mweb mentions that the FON does not take any speed from the client, however I see now that this is a total lie, as this router made the worlds difference to my speeds.

I literally threw my Mweb FON router in the black bin after this..

Nico, South Africa. 13 January 2017

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.

Marne, South Africa. 2 March 2017

Easy to set up. Fast wireless.

Herman, South Africa. 9 February 2017

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!

Gary, South Africa. 18 January 2017

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.

Geoff, South Africa. 7 April 2017

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

Bilal, South Africa. 27 January 2017

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

Brian, South Africa. 15 January 2017

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!

Marius, South Africa. 30 November 2016

Easy to setup.

Ettienne, South Africa. 21 November 2016

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

Heloise, South Africa. 19 December 2016

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

Deon, South Africa. 8 March 2017

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!

Rushil, South Africa. 2 June 2017

Great Router. Works as expected.

Ibrahim, South Africa. 18 December 2016

Easy to set up and works perfectly.

Anelle, South Africa. 20 June 2016

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.

Allan, South Africa. 13 December 2016

Well priced and functions well. Configuring is a breeze.

Nyal, South Africa. 19 December 2016

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.

Andrew, South Africa. 18 April 2017

Works well. Good coverage.

Christopher, South Africa. 19 January 2017

Christo, South Africa. 7 September 2016

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.

MEHMET, South Africa. 5 September 2016

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

DAVID, South Africa. 26 December 2016

Good quality & value.

Danie, South Africa. 20 October 2016

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.

Alvin, South Africa. 27 October 2016

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

Well done takealot, South Africa. 25 October 2016

Nice product

Benjamin, South Africa. 27 February 2017

Excellent value for money

Maggie, South Africa. 22 November 2016

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

layla, South Africa. 1 November 2016

Not bad

Ryan, South Africa. 9 December 2016

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.

Daniel, South Africa. 23 December 2016

Works like a charm, best choice i made.

Francois, South Africa. 26 November 2017

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.

Les, South Africa. 15 February 2017

Perfect for my requirement

Munsoor , South Africa. 24 March 2017

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.

Basil, South Africa. 13 May 2017

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

phillipa , South Africa. 25 May 2017

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.

Jolene, South Africa. 17 May 2017

So far the best router I've ever used.

Roberto, South Africa. 18 May 2017

very good for the price
