Not as well-known a brand, but they make great stuff. I bought the TP-WR1043ND a couple years ago, and it is fantastic. The range on that was excellent and I rarely have any disconnects or issues that require a router reboot. I settled on that one after going through a couple Netgears and D-Links. TP-Link also doesn't go for the superficial BS with fancy aesthetics and internal antennas. They're clearly sticking with the tried-and-true external design and as a result the range on their routers is incredible.

order date / invoice date should still be 11/22. I don't think it's that risky but of course it's up to you.

Yeah i was back on forth all day. Just purchased a N router (not dual band) a couple weeks ago and the $20 8 port gigabit switch earlier today, but I caved on the dual-band after it went out of stock. also have a few G/100mbit routers just sitting around from various slickdeals.

anyway order confirmation has the correct date , usually the packing slip will have date of order, date of shipment or something like that.

hmm, now you got me thinking, i do really need to replace my old buffalo G router but it has been stable on dd-wrt, I've seen some neg reviews about instability on this router but i'm assuming it's nothing that 3rd party firmware can't resolve?

From my PMs with peted20. Rep this guy if you see him post! THIS. IS. MONEY. I'm on the edge of my seat wanting to buy this but... nope. Wisdom says read and I'm sure I can get CODEL working on a better (is there?) router suited for my household and what happens here.

Got my TL-WDR4300 up and running. I (normally) have 9ms ping times between my router and my ISP when not uploading. I'm seeing like 15ms while uploading at full speed. That's insane.

Here's a small write-up. I'll update it as I learn more.
https://gist.github.com/4129668

Codel is working amazingly well. QoS isn't hard to set up at all-- there's default queues (priority, express, default, low) and you classify traffic either by port number or source/destination IP (i.e. give an XBox a static IP and set it to 'priority' or 'express').

So yeah, my advice: anything that's supported in Attitude Adjustment.

You *might* get similar results on Tomato, dd-wrt, etc with reduced txqueuelen but I'm not sure.

I'm really surprised I'm only seeing an average of 4.74ms of extra latency while uploading. A single full-size packet (1500 bytes) takes my 768kbps upload 15.625ms to transmit (the "serialization delay"). If there's a packet in transit, it'd take between 0 and 15.625ms to finish transferring before the next packet. Statistically, it'd average out to the middle (15.625ms / 2 = 7.8125ms). So 4.74ms extra latency seems like magic. I'm probably missing something.

People using small txqueuelen are often using txqueuelen = 2. That means I'd expect to see a max of 15.625ms * 2 = 31.25ms extra latency while uploading if I went the txqueuelen route. I have no idea how I'm only seeing (on average) 4.74ms extra latency. Its like magic. I'm sure there's an explanation. Maybe my uploads weren't using full 1500 byte packets.

I was having serious doubts about this router. With fairly consistant reviewers at the egg complaining about frequent disconnects, it's nice to hear some praise to even things out but since it's OOS I guess it's all pretty moot at this point. Frown
