Hi ProTech
It's good practice to add the price and merchant info to the title also.

Have had this router for 4 or 5 months now and its been the best router I've had in a long time.

Speed and signal are always stable and it needs no rebooting unlike other Netgear and Linksys wireless routers I've had.
#3
I've got a fair bit of TP-Link stuff around the house and have never had a problem with any of it.
#4
Got this myself. And i agree top piece of kit
#5
Got this for £29.99 from base.com a few weeks ago, unfortunately £39.99 from there now. So far has been a good reliable modem/router.

TD-W8961ND seems to have the same spec. Which is the better model? Can any one comment?
#7
Does it work with Sky connections?

Got this precise model about a month ago to replace a Netgear dg834GT on Be (O2). Sync went from 8meg to 9.1, with corresponding increase in download speed, and does not do the netgears trick of dropping + resyncing slower at nighttime. Would recommend.

I have a helpful comment, and one unhelpful comment: ND models have detachable antennas, and the 1 at the end is 1 more than 0, so it's 1 better.

Why BT? Won't this work with Talk Talk to replace the rubbish one they provided?
#11
Got this, generally good, but the button to send the network key to new devices is a bit hit and miss.

Yes it'll work on Talk Talk if your line is through BT i.e ADSL. The only people this won't work for is for people with cable (DSL) like Sky or Virgin Media etc. I'm with Talk Talk (sadly)

Hardly going to be just for BT connections is it

TD-W8960N out of stock now.

TD-W8961ND for £34.66. Same thing? Looks like it might be?

Works fine with Sky Broadband, got this myself to replace the awful Sagem they send out. Resolved no end of problems for me swapping to this (apparently it breaks their T&C's using a third party router)

Sky to my knowledge isnt cable? This wont work with Virgin Media which uses cable, sky broadband (mine at least) is using existing BT fibre. Any DSL connection that uses the BT network will work this router

is it any good for PS3 gaming? have problems with o2 box

Any router is generally only as good as your broadband connection (O2 generally are one of the better providers?)...all depends on what problems you're having? (and lets face it, nobody is getting any action online with the PS3 at present)

Anyone know if you can install DD-WRT on it?

Don't think you can install DD-WRT on ADSL router

You can, but you lose the modem part, making this still a fairly cheap Wireless N router.

You're right, Sky isn't cable, it just comes over BT lines.

The newer model (TD-W8961ND) is £32.99 from play.com and you can claim a free wifi usb dongle see http://www.tp-link.com/uk/promo/ for details.
#24
can you setup multiple SSID's with this? or even limit bandwidth to specific users?

made me laugh. Thanks for the useful comment though.

#27
Cheaper through the preferred sellers link on the right:

Lambda Tech: £34.58
HughieC: £34.59
Gogadgetz: £34.99
#28
nice price for a top piece of kit... had it for 7 months and has been wicked!!! wireless signal is awesome!!!
#29
No Gigabit -> cold. Why would they advertise 300 mbit wifi if there is absolutely no way to get 300 mbit into this device?

I should read your post again if I were you, the clue is wifi

well in Fifa11 I had problems playing online and even now with some port forwarding it is still not perfect. according to o2 forums it is a common problem. So my hope is to get a better router for the time when PSN is finally up and running.
#32
Four points: 1) w8961nd is an upgraded model
2) Uses the standard phone line
3) Worked fine on the xbox
4) increased my download speed by at least a MB indicating better sync rate

If the chipset is compatible, it might be possible with DMT tool.

bought one of this from 7dayshop in Dec/10.

couldn't make it to work on O2-LLU. Spent 3 weeks with tp-link tier3 support engineer, sending/analising wireshark data

even reading threads on the net/amazon of people who manage to connect this router with O2, this did not work.

renewed IP via telnet on O2 router, spoofed MAC, left over 24hrs connect; still no joy. It could have been a faulty unit.

in the end returned to 7dayshp for full refund.

having said that it seems to be a very good router. Don't worry about not being gigabit.
#37
I bought this a couple weeks ago

1) Easy to set up, stable and strong

but

2) Using repeaters with this is only supported with WEP or Open security. So a bit useless for that.

Strange as I managed to get this working on my O2 (LLU) connection after a quick google. Been using it for about 5 months now

it's a bit confusing but the w8960N is the supeior product it has way more features think of the W8961ND as the lite version. it'll be generally similar to the W8960N but will have poor wireless performance in comparison since it's based on a different chip

this will work with any ISP not just BT

A problem this router has is you need to fill in the username and password whereas you can leave it blank on a Netgear DGN2000. How do you overcome this problem?
