I bought one of these to replace the useless Virgin Router 3.0 WIFI, just put in modem mode and connect to this via network cable and enjoy massively improved wifi.

check the dd-wrt website
or google tp-link c60 dd-wrt
or keep being lazy and hope someone finds easily accessible information for you

No you need a couple more, the more arials it has, the more powerfull it looks. Despite it not being very powerfull.

Watch out - ports are not gigabit.

4 × 10/100Mbps LAN Ports
1 × 10/100Mbps WAN Port

Not sure why you'd put slow ports on a fast wifi...

What's the point of "Fast WiFi speeds of up to 1.35 Gbps" if the data going into it via the ethernet ports can only be transmitted at 100Mbps??



Bonkers.

It’s 10/10

My ISP is vodafone and they give u a similar poor router/hub. Can I just replace like for like by putting it in modem mode as you say?

Thought this was a great deal... then noticed the ethernet ports... Ouch.

I checked the website before I asked. Didn't understand so thought a kindly soul would answer. I went to another website where I was helped. The answer I got for anyone wondering is no.

lol at 10/100 ports. That's just a joke in this day and age.

Stupid comment most household broadband is max 200mb divided by number of connected devices means 10/100 is more than enough

Know your facts before spouting rubbish. 10/100 is more than fast enough.

Maybe you should learn the difference between wifi and LAN.

Your statement makes no sense.

Thanks

Thanks, I already do know my facts. The 10/100 ports are a massive weak point in the chain rendering this a disappointment of a router.

You point this out yourself. A 200Mbps connection at the modem is easily standard. So, using this device as your router would at best mean that 200Mbps connection into this router would throttle down to 100Mbps... So you've instantly lost half the speed you are paying for. Pointless.

And there is no need to be so rude to someone who has simply pointed out the speed of the ports. It isn't explicitly stated on the product page and is of use to people to know.

I hadn't voted either way, but as seen as you are behaving like a brat then fine have some coldness because it's a crap deal.

What you don't seem to understand if you have 200 mb coming in if you connect 4 devices the speed will be shared between each which means 10/100 is plenty. I have reported your post for you immaturity.

Southparkfan, the other two posters are correct in highlighting the ports for others to be advised, and neither were 'immature' - if anything your responses to both were.
Any incoming broadband connection will be connected by the WAN port, which is 10/100, so yes any BB connection above 100Mb is immediately wasted. Then having fast wifi to it becomes slightly pointless, you may see good wireless to wireless connections, but that's rare. To say that 100Mb is sufficient (ignoring the first point) completely misses that many people have many devices feeding off a server or other network attached device and would be limited by only 100Mb.
This router may be sufficient for your needs, and that's ok, but don't tell people stating facts that they need to know what they're talking about.

@SouthParkFan if anyone's being immature its yourself!

As the other posters have correctly stated, you would need to connect this routers WAN port to your existing internet providers WAN Cable or router. If you have a 200 or 300Mbps internet connection, its going to be bottle-necked at 100Mbps thanks to this rather useless router.

The only advantage of the super fast 1.35Gbps wireless, is you would be able to transfer files between wireless devices on the network nice and fast. But the internet would suck a bit.

I just hooked it in my apartment and in my case the Virgin Router 3.0 is much better. I have tested different location of the TP Link and its antenna alignment and in most cases is the same or much worse (up to -20 dB) then the Virgin. The further I go the bigger difference it shows.
I will try to return it and switch to ethernet over power solution. That I wanted to avoid.
