Avoid It!!! - 11/13/2011 22:06:13

Rating: 1 of 5 Stars! [1 of 5 Stars!]

Strength:
Great online reviews, nice shiny box, very tweak-able through telnet, plug and play pretty much, low cost.

Weakness:
Numerous: - wireless module died within 2 days - replacement has poor sync and low SNR - broken web GUI for the BRET test - takes 2 days to get an email response from support

Summary:
I had high hopes for this unit from all the hype and reviews on the Internet; however either I am very unlucky or simply put it you get what you pay for. And with TP-Link you got crap. The first TP-LINK TD-W8960N worked great however after a restart the wireless module just died, the SSID was still being advertised but no matter what I did I could not connect to it, new firmware and a factory reset didn't help. The replacement unit had terrible sync rates and signal-to-noise ratios compared to my old adsl modem or even the first TD-W8960N unit I had; the most interesting thing changing the power supply (had compatible lying around) almost cleared up the sync/snr issue but not completely. There was other minor issues with it like BRET test failing if it was started through the web GUI (but working through Telnet), I advised customer support of it and it took them 2 days to respond. Bottom line stay away from this unit unless cost is an issue; modem SYNC stats below: Old DSL605EU Modem: Sync: 3008kbps, Down SNR 8 First TD-W8960N Sync: 3008kbps, Down SNR 6.3 Second TD-W8960N Sync: 2400kbps, Down SNR 5.9 Second TD-W8960N with MY power supply Sync: 2944kbps, Down SNR 5.9

Seems to work fine - 10/18/2011 14:55:20

Rating: 4 of 5 Stars! [4 of 5 Stars!]

Strength:
Cheap and it works as advertised

Weakness:
None that I've noticed so far.

Summary:
I just needed a replacement for a wireless modem that decided to stop working. Buying a modem/router combo was just a plus because it means I get to send back the rented ADSL modem back to the ISP. Set-up was very fast and I was up and running wirelessly in a couple of minutes!
works out of the box for sympatico - 10/10/2010 16:54:10

Rating: 5 of 5 Stars! [5 of 5 Stars!]

Strength:
For various reasons I wanted a combined router and modem. The 2 wire modem supplied by Bell is b and g and not N After doing considerable amount of reading I bought this and it worked out of the box! There are issues with sympatico assigned DNS server which seems to occur when you do some changes to the modem/ and or router. There may be other explanations. This was an issue with Bells 2 wire and also this modem. I had to assign a DNS address for it to work. http://www.dslreports.com/faq/sympat/4.0_Troubleshooting

Weakness:
None noted over the last 6 hours

Summary:
Ideal for those who want a compact N modem/router setup at a very reasonable price.
