Got in on one last night - and I'm really excited about it.

I think this is the absolute best option for OpenWRT right now, and OpenWRT is the only router distribution I will use. If it runs OpenWRT, you know it's got full open source driver support - unlike DD-WRT and friends (who are willing to use binary blobs and stick with old kernels due to that).

Open source support is what tips the scales to this device over the similar (but more expensive) Asus devices. AFAIK they still aren't fully supported by OpenWRT.

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.
I love my WR1043ND. So when it was time to upgrade, I bought this WDR4300. But it was a dud, frequent disconnects and weird problems. Its now sitting idle next to the 1043. I am very disappointed with it.

OOS. Does no AutoNotify mean that Newegg does not expect it restock anytime soon?

I know this sounds like a dumb question, but as a person who just needs basic router capabilities for a normal household, stable connection, fast speed, great range, doesn't really know about all these bells and whistles,

does someone like me really need this?

or even simpler, I'm looking at this, but is it

a) easy to use

b) useful for a basic user like me?

If you don't mind my asking, which firmware were you running on the 4300?

I'm not a router expert but some of the reviews on NewEgg have suggested that this router might be unstable on its stock firmware. If that's the case you may want to pass unless you are willing to learn enough to change the firmware to 3rd party/open source. It isn't hard and there are good instructions to be had but it could brick your router if something goes wrong.

Thanks! In 4 one. Got one from Adorama. The problem that others mentioned. I also believe that it can be corrected. I use the Netgear wndr3300 with DD-WRT for couple years. Time to upgrade now. Great price!

i have a 5+ yr old buffalo router
i'm going to use for OOMA, Netflix and 3-4 wireless devices/phones/printer
i've read some of the not so good reviews

is there a better value for the $$$ out there for a router with these features?? (these features are found mostly in >$100 routers right?)

edit: main issue i am having with my current router is that it drops certain devices or seems to have a limit on the amount of devices that can be connected. for example if i connect my nook, then my phone will drop the connection requiring me to reset the router

I'm just ruining the latest stock. After reading all these posts, I'll probably try a third party firmware. Not sure what I'll try but I might the gargoyle...
