This is fantastic for me

I am not very good with technology, but after few hours set up, yes, I am not good with set up.
At the beginning, plugged in the modem router with all the wire as the instructions, it works good on signal with 2.4 & 5G, but I don't know how to filled up the details on the management page, so I rang to the hotline, I got Winnie to help me and finally, it connect to the internet. Show details

This is a terrible device, no service, parental controls don't work. Can't connect a phone

I've had many phone calls with TP Link over this device, they keep saying I need the VOIP number and register number from Telstra, Telstra do not have these codes/numbers. Spent hours going around in circles with them both. Parental controls don't work, after spending ages with TP link setting them up the kids can still get onto the internet on some devices and are completely blocked on others. After not being able to get anything to work, TP Link said it could be faulty and sent me back for a replacement, the new one is doing all the same things. The only good thing is the range is better than the standard Telstra modem. It's really not worth the stress. Show details

Is the best modem router on the market

Brought a spare router today (the same model) as I work from home. They are very easy to set up and I did the set up in 5 minutes. Rarely do I have any drop outs using the router and I do a reboot once a week. Is the buy of the year Show details

Worked, until it didn’t. TP Link need to up their support game

Purchased Oct 2020, and ticked along ok. Drop outs from time to time but hard to know whether this was the modem’s fault. A few days ago it ended its run of reliability and flat out wouldn’t connect. Resets did nothing, and after swapping it out with an old modem that connected immediately, it was clearly an issue with the TP Link.

Less than a year old, it’s within warranty. Called tech support and was on hold for a long time, and eventually gave up. Like a lot of companies, they’re using the pandemic as an excuse for poor support. While this is reasonable last year, organisations have had 18 months to adapt and there shouldn’t be excuses for poor service. Show details

Restarts at will

Bought from Harvey Norman in November 2020. Experienced very flaky internet, especially when streaming, and eventually discovered that the router was turning itself off and restarting. Raised issue using TP-Link's online technical support; heard nothing. Also discovered reports of similar experiences with some other TP-Link routers. Told by HN that will need to return router to TP-Link for them to test and confirm fault before refund can be given, so will keep as a spare, and went elsewhere for replacement. Show details
