Works Great - Now

Had an immense amount of trouble setting the router up to connect with my ISP (Slingshot).
PBT and Slingshot tech support were both very helpful but neithers advice managed to get the router to connect.
They did give me a basic understanding of what the issue might have been. I ended up turning a protocol on that both PBT and Slingshot tech support had said should be turned off, this immediately got it working.
I'm no networking engineer but I do know my way around tech, this was at the extreme limits of my ability to troubleshoot. On that note, I wouldn't recommend this product unless you also have some experience with tech troub...view more

Just wanted to leave a tip on setting this up

Short version: plug into Fibre ONT, start the easy setup option, select dynamic or auto select, and then select 'Additional ISP options' and just select 'New Zealand - UFB' option. About 30 seconds to get online if you do this.

Longer version: I needed to get an apartment online quickly (it had a ONT but previous tenant had removed the router) so signed up with Slingshot, and walked in and grabbed this router from local PBTech branch to get online fast.
(Buying a router seems to work out better value than $5 a month to hire one). Expect 'fibre ready' routers to just plug in and work, but after a few attempts and reboots, I had to do som...view more

A great purchase, great price and easy to set up

Great price
Easy delivery
Once set up, which is easy I established three networks with ease, one for the Wife and I, one for the boys and, one for guests.
The boys one is timed and goes off denying the access to the internet after a certain time which stops the arguments :-)
Highly recommended

Easy install

This was purchased as an upgrade to the “free” modem that came with out internet provider.
Installation was an easy step by step process.
We seen an Instant increase in our wifi speeds straight away. It handles running our PS4 (via cat cable) and Xbox one (via wifi) fine.
Only down side is the wifi has dropped out on the odd occasion (but much better than the other modem)
I would recommend this for anyone who wants an upgrade from the nasty free modems. I’m happy with this purchase.

Easy to set up as an Access Point

Using this as an Access Point with other TP-Link hardware (a router and power line adaptors).
Set-up was very quick easy and allowed me to have one SSID and password throughout the house with devices 'roaming' and attaching to the router with the best signal strength.

Good value for money

Bought this router to replace the aging router supplied by my ISP. I have two PCs which I connect to the LAN ports, two laptops on wifi and 7 devices also on wifi. No problem with speed. Easy to set up. If you are on fiber, just choose New Zealand fiber during set up and you are good to go.

Excellent value!

Purchased this router for home connecting often more than 4+ devices at a time and the coverage area in my house is now awesome and the speed of my fibre has jumped up - such a good price and easy to set up :) Have been using for 2 weeks now and is going so well. Looks a little more conspicuous with it's antenna's and being black but it's compact and the performance makes up for looks ;)

Cheap router that did exactly what I needed

Cheap basic 2.4/5G router that did exactly what I needed. Also has an access point mode.
