Upgraded the firmware to Openwrt from stock, this router works perfectly and as expected with the open source firmware.
Configured minidlna, 3g usb dongle, transmission client, Qos, screens, curl, etc on a 160GB external harddisk that is attached to this router via its usb port, The disk is partitioned with a 1GB root/boot partition, 512MB of swap partition and the remaining is shared/used for backup's and downloads.
(using this router 24 X 7 since more than two months with openwrt), no problems nor any hangup's upto now, no issues with downloading multiple larger files nor any speed dropouts.
The usb speed need to be improved a lot as it is limited to less than 4MBps with the stock as well as open source firmware.
Amazon seems to be better than Flipkart regarding delivery speed (the overall experience is that Amazon is more professional).
This was also the best price on the net, Rs.4100. And they will also refund 10% of that back to me as it was purchased on an SBI debit card.
I think its good that Amazon does not do any coupon things and gives the best price upfront. Searching for a coupon or even wondering if there is some coupon is quite a headache.
One tiny thing - Within 2 days of buying, its price went down to Rs.3900. Internationally if something like that happens in Amazon, they normally refund back that difference. As far as I could see, they are not implementing that in India.
The product itself is very good.
We can upgrade the firmware with openwrt so that makes it an enterprise class very secure router.
This is my first ever wireless router, so I can't make any direct comparisons. But I found that the range was not very good. I have never used any cheaper routers, or more expensive ones, so I don't know if this is how things are normally.
One unfortunate thing that I found only after buying:
Thought the router has 5Ghz band, not all phones can do 5Ghz. Phones like Samsung S4, S5, Xiaomi M3, etc does it, but cheaper phones like my Gionee Dream D1 and Xiaomi Mi Redmi 1S, DOES NOT!. As a result I am stuck with 2Ghz only (so you need to check that).
And most phones can do only max 6MB/sec (48Mb/sec) wifi speed (real world) when its right next to the modem. So its quite bad. Again phone limitation.
With openwrt its possible to use this as a 3G router by using a usb dongle. I tried (5 hrs), but I couldn't make my 'BSNL capitel connect' (evdo usb modem) to work with it.
Overall I am very happy with the purchase. :-).........
1. Dual Band
2. Very Good pricing
3. Range is ok.
4. Dual USB. I installed two 2 TB harddisk in it. I get around 5 MB read speed and 4 MB write speed.
5. Look wise good.
6. response time is very good.
1. The firmware would have been better. I used ASUS routers earlier. Asus, OpenWrt, DDWrt, Tomato firmwares has many more options.
Then, you sit back and relax as this router keeps chugging along, rarely disappointing.
The installation took less than 30 minutes (inclusive of opening the package)
The signal range is good for my 1700 sq ft apt. It weakens a bit in the last room, but compared to my last (Belkin Pre N) it is much better. Do note I have quite a few walls and a lot of wood work in my house.
The name for the shared USB is not changable
Top international reviews
With a 45Mbps internet connection, using my smart phone I regularly get 35+Mbps about 10 feet from the router - that's situated in a wooden entertainment unit. About 25 feet away, behind one wall in a bedroom I get upwards of 17Mbps. These aren't blazing fast speeds, but coming from my previous router, which topped out at 21Mbps 3 feet from the router, this was a huge improvement.
On a Windows PC equipped with dual band 802.11N network adapter 10 feet from the router I was able to achieve upwards of 65Mbps. This speed was using the speedboost feature that was in place from my ISP. This speed isn't typical. Using the same PC about 25 feet away behind a wall, I get upwards of 20Mbps.
These days I primarily use the WDR3600 for connecting to a VPN. The WHR-HP-G54 didn't allow me to get more than 4Mbps when connecting to the VPN. Changing the WDR3600 to DD-WRT and connecting to the same VPN allowed me to get speeds close to 17Mbps. Note that using the TP-LINK firmware to connect to the VPN over PPTP worked, but I was unable to access many websites. Thus my switch to DD-WRT.
The range of this router versus my older HP-G54 isn't as good. I suspect a few tweaks in DD-WRT might improve this, but now that my primary use is for connecting to two wired devices to a VPN through the router, range is less of a concern.
With the TP-LINK firmware I never found I had to the reboot the router, but using DD-WRT I find I periodically reboot when connection to the VPN seems to slow. Sometimes this seems to have an affect in solving the problem, other times it doesn't.
The included USB ports on the back are great for sharing files that are on a USB key. My only complaint is that the TP-LINK firmware always defaults to turning the FTP server on, after the router has been rebooted. This is something to watch for. I wish there was an option to permanently disable FTP. Additionally I had issue accessing any files stored on the USB from my DLNA enabled Samsung SmartTV. The TV would pick up the USB key and give the option to access it, but then there was never any visible music, video or pictures. On a Windows PC I had no issue accessing the media and other files on the USB key.
The guest network feature on this router is nice, though I haven't found a ton of use for it because most people visiting have a mobile data plan.
The router looks good, though the high gloss finish means it's a magnet for fingerprint marks.
I plan to upgrade to a more powerful router in the next year. Based on my experience with the TP-LINK WDR3600 I can say I'll definitely consider another TP-LINK router.
Built-in print server (connect the printer directly to the routers USB port) requires installation of a small app on every computer connected to the router but it works well once up and running. There is a 2nd USB port that can be used for a network hard drive.
If ease of installation and features at a great price are what you're looking for, you can't go wrong with the WDR3600.
My two real complaints are the lights on the front are very bright and light up the whole area around the router at night, I've read that in other reviews also. And the addresses it automatically issues to your different devices seems to change on occasion when they renew.
El rango del wifi es mejor que el de mi anterior router, un TL-3420 v2 de TP-Link también. Repito con TP-Link, aunque la interfaz web no me gusta nada (he de confesar que pocas me dan las opciones que necesito), por lo que lo primero que he hecho según lo he tenido en mis manos, ha sido meterle OpenWRT con LuCi. Eso es otro mundo.
Además tiene muy buena cobertura. Tengo el router en una punta de la casa y antes, en la otra punta, no tenía apenas señal de wifi. Ahora sin embargo, tengo la señal casi a tope.
it worked great, for awhile but now in the first part of march I went to use the tablet and no web connection I reset it, I did everything to make sure it would work and nothing it was to go to the great router graveyard , .this was not overloaded abused or anything it just died.
As a summary, 2.4 ghz, and 5 ghz radios for your wireless. You can turn on or off either one, or both. Easy menu for set-up. All good.
I'm often required to reset it also, by disconnecting power - it's also a finger print magnet. Overall I would rate this modem a 2/5. I am somewhat satisfied that the 2.4ghz band functions.
