    I have this router since last month. This is one of the best router Tp-link produce which is tons of feature for cheap price. I get 12 MB/ps with 4 bars(with TL-WN821N) . when you are reviewing please compare the range with other routers.Thanks.

    @extremedanush: I have just setup the router on my network…. it might take a couple of weeks for the full review…… coz I do indepth testing for WiFi routers….. but already I can say the WiFi range is pretty impressive….. yeah it beats most of the higher priced routers :)

    What is its price ?

    What is its price ?

  • geekyranjit said:

    @abhim7: This one is about Rs 4,000 – 4,200 there is one model mode that comes with 100 Mbps ports instead of 1000Mbps (gigabit) ports and that is significantly cheaper….. If you notice this model is very nicely priced for a gigabit WiFi router…. coz other options from other manufactures are significantly more expensive.

    ranjit can you plz tell me downloading games movies or songs by using torrent is legal or illegal

  • geekyranjit said:

    @johnsmit230: If you are not paying for that content example games / music etc it’s illegal…. and mostly torrents are used for distributing pirated content and that is illegal.It’s not that all torrents are illegal…… for example most of the Linux distro are available via torrents… but majority of the torrents I would say deal with copyrighted content which is illegal.

    @osityan: I said the N150 from TP-link is one of the best router I have tested based on it’s price to performance ratio based on my testing and who said tp-link gave the product to me for free… it was a review unit and that unit has been sent back to tp-link office.

    I have tested a lot of routers ex Belkin, Netgear, Asus, Tenda and Linksys and if you have seen my video reviews of routers I follow a standard test for routers and I also give the actual throughput figures for different routers.

  • geekyranjit said:

    @osityan: For your comment is it the best router in the market of-course we have some other routers that are better but they cost almost 4-5 times the cost of the N150 tp-link router, the tp-link N150 was one of the best budget router I have tested based on WiFi throughput and overall WiFi coverage… and I have overall throughput figures to show that.

  • osityan said:

    price to performance ratio makes more sense :)

  • osityan said:

    How do you come to the conclusion that the TPLINK n150 is one of the BEST routers? Is it because you received it for free from TPLINK? Is that what makes it the best?

    @drraghul: I havent yet done the throughput testing so cannot comment yet…. but I would say the range is just a little better than RT N13U but the RTN13U can do a lot of other things that this router cannot.

    Cost ? And where to buy in India? I am thinking of buying this and replacing ASUS RTN13U (mainly because of lack of Gigabit port).

  • geekyranjit said:

    Cost around Rs 4,100…… check in local computer stores you should be able to find them.

    My 2.4Ghz router interferes with my Wireless headset. What router could you recommend that doesn’t cause “popping” and “hissing” in 2.4Ghz headset?

  • geekyranjit said:

    @SuperBoogly: Before purchasing a new router I would suggest that you change the channels setting in you WiFi router and see if that fixes your problem, else you might have to use a 5 Ghz band router, but again not all devices are compatible with 5Ghz.
