Reliable and affordable no-frills wireless router!, October 17, 2010
n007
I was looking for a basic but reliable wireless router so I could use my netbook around my condo, as well as hardwire my desktop PC and X360 to the internet. However I found that researching wireless routers is a nightmare, as for every person who lauds a particular model, there will be someone else who condemns it. This problem is especially prevalent among entry level models. Initially I was only considering LinkSys and DLink, since they are the two most famous consumer brands, but I couldn't find a basic model from either that was consistently rated well. There always seemed to be a small but significant proportion of users that would complain about dropped signals, running hot, firmware issues, etc. By chance though I saw this model reviewed on CNET [..]and immediately bought it from a local PC store. In addition to the good performance, long range, and ease of use as tested by CNET, this router was extremely affordable, which sealed the deal for me. After using this router for.


Excellent device and DDWRT friendly router, April 25, 2011

I was in search of economic router to extend the reach of my wireless network. So I bought the router TpLink wr740n version 2 (the one with the UFO shape) which conforms with this premise, however I did not expect anything special from this wireless router, if it was capable of maintaining a speed of 54Mbps I'd be satisfied.

So being a low-cost device and with the purpose of conducting a performance test, I decided to change the stock firmware with DDWRT firmware and that was an excellent decision, the device provides a super stable signal, wireless speed of 65Mbps at mixed mode BGN, it could reach the 150Mbps at N mode but I have to bear with my old wifi devices, good power (the router wr740n comes with a 5dBi antenna), the wan port (blue) is now an additional switch port, I bought it a month ago and I have not had to reboot it.

Summarizing, this router, as second AP, is just what I needed plus all the improvements and tweaks the DDWRT firmware provides, it was.

After hours and hours and hours of trying to get my LInksys E2000 to work again, I gave up and thought, what the heck, I'll spend a twenty on this cheap router. My time is worth more than the hardware, even if I throw it away. So I order it on Thursday; it arrives on Saturday (god bless Amazon), and I get around to plugging it in Sunday. Here's the timeline:

3:16pm open box
3:16pm plug in power
3:16pm pull off annoying "Please Run the CD First" sticker that is blocking the ethernet ports
3:16pm plug in ethernet cable to computer
3:16pm watch as my home page comes up on my computer

Yes, that's right: less than one minute to internet connection. So, to resume:

3:17pm type 193.168.0.1 and guess"admin" as my sign on and "admin" as my password. Correct.
3:17pm name router for broadcast
3:18pm Yes, a minute has gone by!
3:18pm click WEP preference and type in password
3:18pm reboot router (mandatory)
3:19pm OMG.
