If you get knocked off the net, it is impossible to reconnect with this modem.
Using the password - useless
Using the on / off switch on modem - useless
Using the reset button on the router - useless.
Every time we have to call the I S P and have a manual reconnect - and we are on underground cable.
Frustrating to use, drops out easily - better ones out there - not recommended at all.

$2 Shop Router In A $5.00 Box
This is by far the worst tech I have ever bought, and well and truly over rated and extremely over priced. I recently cancelled my ADSL2+ and upgraded to wireless internet at home. (NOTE) In the last 3 years or more, I have never had any trouble with my smart devices (TP-Link Plugs or Light Bulb's) using my ADSL2+ connection.
I needed a router with a sim card slot included, so I originally purchased the TP-LINK TL-MR6400 and was told by a CPL sales person it should work fine with my TP-Link Smart WiFi LED Bulb's & TP-Link HS100 Wireless...Smart Plug's. The TL-MR6400 was losing connection to all the smart devices, and after calling and talking to TP-Link and going through their tech support, I was told the router was faulty and to return it for a replacement. I decided to pay a bit extra and exchanged it for the TP-Link Archer MR200 AC750 so I could have the 5GHz option at a later date if needed. It was exactly the same as the cheaper model. I can spit further than the WiFi signal range of this router. Smart devices were going offline 2-3 times a day, even the one less than 90cm away from the router itself. Remembering, these smart devices are made by the same manufacturer, so after doing some research online I read this has been an issue as far back as late 2015? Looks like TP-Link wants top dollar for cheaply made buggy tech and as a reward their customer service, tech support and customer satisfaction is non-existent for years to come! I only have myself to blame for buying this rubbish without doing better research before hand. The next step is selling this TP-Link garbage off at a loss and find another manufacturer that actually knows what their doing!

Decent price for a modem/router 4g capability with AC
Positive: It is very easy to use. It is the cheapest compared to the specs of all others in the market. It has 3 years warranty.
Negative: Does get overheat. AC has dropped out a few times, need to put to medium power has helped. Quite expensive for a modem. Wished it has USB input for printer server.
