  • 4.0 / 5
    • The good:
      Excellent Wi-Fi output, Easy to use
    • The bad:
      Pricing may keep informal users away

    The TP-LINK TL-WDR3600 is a big, plane router with two removable antennae for broad-part coverage. The manufacturing design is similar to the WDR4300, which hits the collective wireless speed of 750Mbps however utilize a third aerial to achieve this. 10 blue LEDs depict several common router functions; however, they cannot be switched off in the control panel.



    There is no supplied stand; however should you desire to do so it is wall-mountable. Maybe not instantly obvious is the semi-lustrous plastic; it stains ever so effortlessly and, after utilizing the router a bit, emerges to be a dirt attraction. Build quality is respectable and the fairly standard throughput speeds allows TP-LINK to not need an internal fan.



    Exploring the back and moving from right to left, the power slot is adjacent to the router on/off button, Wi-Fi on/off button, two USB 2.0 slots, WAN slot, and four gigabit LAN slots and, lastly, a Wi-Fi-guarded setup (WPS) pin. Should the user-side gadget support WPS pushing this switch for about five seconds starts automatic (secure) link, removing the need to physically key in the password, although do understand that pressing it down for almost 10 seconds compels a factory reset.



    It is worth noting that USB sticks, hard drives and printers can be attached to the two slots and after that shared across gadgets, either wirelessly or wired. Knowing that the router boasts media and FTP server credentials, many would like to witness USB 3.0 slots as standard, although, in all fairness, the CPU in the router might wrestle with speedy transfers. Inside, the router makes use of an Atheros AR9344 core chip operating at 560MHz maintained by an Atheros AR9580 SoC and 128MB of RAM for Wi-Fi tasks.



    Using the web-interface dashboard basically involves attaching the router to a computer and keying in 'tplinklogin.net' on the browser - the business-standard 192.168.0.1 does the same thing. The feel and look of the dashboard looks older, nevertheless, easy to navigate. This router does sustain the Linux-based DD-WRT hardware for a fuller array of choices, although you will be taking a risk by flashing.



    There is a standard bandwidth control attribute for every device joined to the network on the other hand no real Quality of Service, where particular functions can be offered bandwidth priority over others. Different from other quality routers, there's as well no alternative to allow a guest network or build a shared link outside a cell phone-broadband dongle. The 5GHz and 2.4GHz bands can be utilized in tandem for highest bandwidth, because there are 4 and 13 channels, in that order.



    Any time you change whichever obvious settings - for instance, the SSID name and the router needs a reboot, which is standard, however it takes more than a minute to achieve this; this could definitely require a speed-up.



    In general, the price and prospective 600Mbps Wi-Fi output are the two noticeable TP-LINK TL-WDR3600 specifications, even if the dashboard and general software feature-set is standard. The router is however a good buy if you need fast internet.
