Great router. I have one and paid £40 last month. Signal is good and gives consistent speed. Easy to set up. It has a BT chip in it so extra good with ADSL. Setup took about 5 minutes and I was up and running.

Before I was receiving about 9MB download now I receive between 10.5 and 12 with this. Upload increased by half a mb.
For the price, voted hot, but if anyone reads the reviews on Amazon it's fair to say it could be a hit or miss product. Some love it, some hate it.
Last week I bought the td-8960n which is earlier in age but not in model line up as tp-link still have the 8960 in its line up. Reviews of the two say the earlier is more configurable (dd-wrt can be installed to tweak snr so as to wring the life out of your adsl connection and the vpn options are greater) but this is still a very good price for the 8961 and given the price difference is now approx £10 in favour of 8961 I would probably have got this instead.

I have the W8961ND and neither OpenWRT or dd-wrt are in the list of compatible chipsets

Reason for mentioning this, is that my W8961ND is rubbish (ie, one of the "miss" variety)
Don't really know that much about routers but I went for the older 8960 last week because of the mixed reviews on Amazon on this item. Have to say I'm very pleased with the one I got, very reliable connection so far, unlike the netgear it replaced!
bought one of these sent it straight back, took ages to get it to set up then kept dropping connections, apparantly this is not a newer version than the 60
Very good router, great value for money.
I bought a week ago for £35 and it has been good so far.
You can't put dd-wrt on either of these, they're modem routers!

You can tweak the 8960 modem though, it has the same chipset as the Billions 8400, and my line is a lot faster and more stable than previously. Router side is a bit average so I use it in half bridge with a Linksys router.
