TP-Link N600 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router

This review is going to be a basic rerun of the TP-Link N750.  I even went to the TP-Link site to try and determine what the difference is between these two routers besides price.   This router was $66 at Amazon and the N750 was $83.00.   Oh, the N600 only has two antennas instead of three.  I emailed the sales department at TP-Link since I wasn’t willing to incur a long distance charge to Australia on my phone.  I will post back here whenever they respond. 

This router set up beautifully.   Of course beauty is in the eye of the beholder but in my eye if it sets up without biting me in the butt I am happy.   This did.

I followed the quick installation guide and surprise, surprise it was actually quick.   My Amazon Fire, my laptop and my phone all attached easily.  The signal was stronger than my current Linksys router.   I have a meter ap on my phone and this puppy was pumping out a much stronger signal.    It has two USB ports that supposedly will allow you to plug in a drive and a printer for sharing.   That is not as simple as the bare bones installation and I will have to update this when I have time to test that.   I did not see any increase in performance on the hard wire end but I don’t have any gigabit network cards in my systems either.

First glance, this installed easily and pumps out a very strong signal.   I recommend it. 
If reviewing a product, it may have been received free of charge. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
