Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid and reliable I have gigabit and run a server from home that supports a dozen users. I was having issues with cpu load on routers until I tried this router. I've had zero issues and the cpu load is usually under 10% and has never hit 100%. I highly recommend this router to anyone who has had router issues in the past.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Extremely Disappointed Was surprised how easy it was to setup. First 3 hours it was fabulous. Then wireless dropped off with no connectivity and got a IP conflict on one of my wired PCs for no reason. Cleared the cache on my E4500 Linksys smart router off all devices. Still NO wireless access. Reset the AC2600 (RE650) and set it all back up again. No wireless connectivity. units able to see wireless but wont connect. Selected devices to forget wireless networks and reacess - nothing. Ran a network scan and it keep showing the wireless network going up and down constantly. Updated the firmware to the latest version. It self rebooted. No connectivity for better than a hour. Took a break and then reset the device again. Network back up for about a hour. Then it shut itself back off. Now it will go up and down constantly even though their is a blue ring actively on the device identifying solid network connection. My other router tied to is sitting in basement almost directly below it. I even tried using a network cable to directly tie the two together so no wireless connection necessary for extending network. Nothing. This unit is completely unstable and unreliable. Extremely frustrated and disappointed. After seeing all the one stars Im curious how it is keeping a high rating (someone fat fingering the rating rather than looking at the reviews)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beastly! I use this on my home network to hardwire my XBOX1X and it is beastly and my speeds are amazing with Comcast 150mbps. Much better/faster than the RE350 which I had before. This thing covers my entire basement and expands my coverage outside much more than the RE350 did. Love it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Steer clear Extremely unstable. Anything connected to it loses Internet connection. Reset 5 times. Really is worthless.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rock Solid TP-Link products have never let me down and this one is no exception. Have had this for some time so this is NOT a new review (well over a year now) and it has been through a couple of firmware updates since I have owned. I have a high volume of devices connected to this router and all perform flawlessly and very stable.The concurrent use is not high but at any given moment I have a game console, 3 smartphones, Roku streaming my TV service, and a daughter streaming movies on a desktop computer without a hiccup. I will continue to stand by TP-Link. Well done folks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this router I've had this router for about a year and have never had any issues with it. I have a fiber connection to my home (250 mbps up and down); this router definitely keeps up and delivers fast speeds always. I have 2 windows laptops, 2 androids, 1 iOS phone, 1 mac mini, 2 printers and an Xbox. I have everything running wireless and never have any lag at all. Don't pay attention to the review saying that it won't work with iOS. I've had 3 or 4 for work and never had an issue.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Useful for large area or shared wi-fi access situations It took quite a while to actually setup the extender as I had trouble having my extender correct to my Wi-Fi connection. But once the system stabilized, I could connect quite easily by directly connecting to the extender over Wi-Fi. The Wi-Fi connection speed over the extender is about 50% of what you would get with a direct Wi-Fi connection. So there is significant performance reduction. This is definitely better than having just one band of signal at a distant corner of the house or being seated in a yard or something. But you should remember not to connect to the extender if you are within decent range of the direct wifi connection. One feature I liked was the ability to just turn off the LED control lights at pre-defined timings such as, say from 8PM - 8AM everyday so that there is no blue hue in the room at nights. Access control is also another nice feature which is available with most recent TP Link network products. Overall I think its a good product with very specific use cases. Don't consider this if you have a Wi-Fi router (especially if its TP-Link) that has a very good span across your working area. Submitted as part of a free sample program
