jcwy999,

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.

Thanks for the advice!! I will definitely upgrade/update to the new firmware immediately after the install.

P.S....I just realized that this router comes with a two year limited warranty period.....sweet!

I bought the 4300 during thanksgiving and as mentioned earlier, the strength on the 5 GHz
band is not that strong. I also had issues running the t-mobile @home (voip) router behind this router - the calls would connect but then drop after a minute or so.
I also have had wireless connections drop off a couple of times for no reason.

I am running stock firmware as DD-WRT is officially not supported yet. I am hoping
DD-WRT will fix most of these issues.

I bought this router at Thanksgiving. Straight out of the box it had a serious problem, after a few hours it would no longer serve dhcp requests and so had to be reset.

I put DD-WRT on it and I'm super pleased with the result. It's rock solid, it has been up for 45 days according to the control panel and I've never had to reset it. The wireless transfer speeds are excellent and unlike some people on the DD-WRT forums I can connect to the 5GHz band fine (although my laptop tends to default to the 2.4ghz radio).

For this price I would 100% recommend it so long as you are happy to flash DD-WRT.

EDIT: For reference I have a complicated network with 15 active wired/wireless devices. I'm currently running BT on one device and downloading via steam on another and the router is using something like 10% of its total RAM.

I have linksys160n flashed with DD-WRT. Am happy about DD-WRT working solid on my linksys.
I purchased this TP Link to have a dual band capacity. Would you recommend to put DD-WRT or OpenWRT.
Also I am planning to do a wireless bridge between this router and my old DD-WRT linksys router.
Please help me, which one to go for?

I bought the TP Link to replace the exact same router (Linksys 160N) which I was running DD-WRT on also. My Linksys would very occasionally glitch (overheat?) and I'd have all the lights synchronised flashing. As for DD-WRT versus OpenWRT, I can't say, I haven't tried OpenWRT. But if DD-WRT runs great (which it does) and it does everything you want to you might as well go with that.

I would have bit on this too if I hadn't got the Rosewill RNX N150 a few days ago. I too think the price point is good for this router with DD-WRT. No MIR could have made it better !

It works in Chrome, just page down and you'll see the -$10. It doesn't show it on the product line.
