People who want to buy more than 1. You can get 2 per person (rebate).
But, the promo code only works once, so you have to buy both all at once.

This one's 5Ghz antenna only has 2x (so technically 5x). I made a post a while back where I found a bunch of wireless adapters with similar generation chipsets and asked people to try it out.
Thanks for the information - when you say it has 2x, technically 5x... how does that compare to the EA3500 which claims "Antennas: 6 Internal." Does that mean only one less antenna or four less?

Or, does it the number of antennas matter for ~ 8 devices?

Thanks again for the helpful information!

For people wanting dual-band speeds reaching the theoretical maxes, you're going to be disappointed no matter what router you get. All the standards are still up in the air, causing results to vary.
The only way you will get the actual theoretical max that makes full use of all antennas is to buy similar chipset from same company wireless adapters and routers.

The process by which dual-band pairs is still not fully standardized, so different models and companies use different algorithms which end up even hurting speeds. You'll see complaints about the WDR4300 because of this.

Note: This does not explain the issues people are having with the WDR3600 or when not using wireless. I'm not sure why this is the case, since this unit has CPU/RAM much higher than comparably priced models.

I'd imagine that all these standards are created and tested in rooms with zero wireless frequency interference which is pretty much not attainable in the real world.

I picked up the Tenda N60 that has been on sale for $39.99 at Newegg for at least a week. Dual band and gigabit router. It sounds like this TP Link can use open source firmware, but I know the N60 cannot at this time. Otherwise, seems to be a great price with no rebate required. Any other differences that make this TP-Link better than the Tenda?

[QUOTE=yazyazoo;56783720]How is the speed on this for wireless? I want to get one but the Amazon and Newegg reviews scare me. There are a lot of 1 or 2 stars saying the router doesn't work.


I've been looking & researching for a new router to replace my old Netgear wrg614 for the last few weeks. Almost all of the routers out there, regardless of brand & price, there were always some scary 1 or 2 stars reviews. I came very close in buying the refurb Linsys EA2700, TPlink WR1043nd & TPlink wndr4300, but each time after reading the reviews from various sources, I back out of it.

The reason I just pull the trigger on this router is because I realized that there is "no perfect" router out there. You just have to go by what your expectations are & a decent review. For me, it is based on Price, Decent Reviews, Dual Band & Gigabit port.

Since I'm not technical savy, I hope this will work right out of the box without having to doing any changes/updates to it. This way, I don't have to worry about any Tomatoes, Potatoes, Carrots, or Open-source, Hot-Sauce.......:Confused

P.S. I have to pay tax of $4.13 in N.J.

Might jump on this and use an E2000 as a bridge... i hate not having simultaneous dual band.
I bought the 4300 on black friday and have my e2000 sitting in a box now... where can I find info on how to use my e2000 as a bridge?

Thank You

It's pretty east if using DDWRT...

Change the router IP to 192.168.1.2

Set the same SSID and password as main router... then there is a setting where you have to "join site" which you will pick your main router. I am at work so that's how I did mine in a nutshell

Just got a EA2700, looks good to me. Had several Tenda or other WiFi routers and can't cover my small home. But this one works great.

jcwy999,

I am technical but kind of same with you when it comes to hardware. I've been reading all about routers for past 2-3 months and as you said there is no perfect one but the reviews for this seems pretty good. The ONLY thing you/we should remember that we'll upgrade/update the firmware right after installation. That seems to fix many complaints about this router. I am in one and hopefully it'll work great.

Try a different browser, I couldn't get it to work with Chrome, but Mozilla worked fine.
