We just installed this router to use with 3 computers and so far, we are getting 10-times better results than our old junk Linksys G did. Setup was very easy. Great connection. I only have 2 issues with it. One was that my computer did not support the latest WPA2-PSK. So, we can only run our computers on the network with WEP security mode. However, that is an issue with my old computer, not the router. The other issue is that if you are far enough away from the router, it tends to be spotty at times, but only for very short spurts of time. When it is connecting to the internet, which is most of the time, it gives a much stronger connection than most routers. So, with the exception of only a few minor errors, I highly recommend this router, even though it's not the best of the best. The price was excellent, and a few little things don't matter for such a great deal on a powerful N router.

I work from home and when my cable provider's hardware was being inconsistent and requiring daily restarts I decided to purchase my own modem and router. I paired the TL-WR841N router from TP-Link with the Motorola Surfboard. The modem is performing nicely however, this router is requiring a restart approximately once per week. While I guess that is 7 times better than cable company provided hardware it is still disappointing. :(

When it works this router provides good high speed wireless connection. I usually have 3-4 devices accessing it at a time with only one or two actively using the signal at once. (Laptop, cell phone, tablet)

Due to the inconsistency I would NOT recommend this product.

Comments about TP-Link TL-WR841N Wireless N Router:

The router was easy to install. My tower computer was two rooms away and picked up the signal. It was very easy to configure the router to my hp computer. The download speed did increase from 7 mbps (the old Netgear router) to 18 mbps, but we get 70 mbps at the modem, so I had hoped for more download speed. Just have to live with it for awhile.

            A snap to set up, very fast and incredibly affordable. Got one for my mom after seeing lots of good reviews, was a bit skeptical because was so inexpensive (for router with two external antennae) but it performed flawlessly. Charter installer expressed surprise at speed it delivered (with their modem). Because of this I got this router and a Surfboard 6141 for my own Comcast service and this combo delivers consistently faster speed wirelessly (up to 30 mpbs) than the comcast gateway had (24 mbps). A real bargain.

                Comments about TP-Link TL-WR841N Wireless N Router:

                The router works fine and seems to deliver the promised speed. However, I was much more hopeful regarding the range. My previous router was G and I got the same wifi signal strength as the one I get from this model. I live in a 900 sq ft apartment, quite long and thin in layout and the router is about 70 ft away from the room where I get the weakest signal. That shouldn't be a big deal for an N router, however, I will need to install a powerline extender, otherwise I will not get a decent signal everywhere. Expected a little more, but it's okay for the price.
