Description

TP-LINK's TD-W8968 300Mbps Wireless N USB ADSL2+ Modem Router is an incredibly robust all-in-one device allowing users to access high-speed internet connection via ADSL or Ethernet WAN (EWAN) using its interchangeable LAN/WAN port and share it wirelessly at 300Mbps wireless 802.11n speeds.

With its multi-function USB port, users can share printers, files and play media across the local network or access files from attached USB storage across the internet using the TD-W8968's FTP server function.

Multifunction USB Port - Easy Sharing
Using the TD-W8968's multi-functional USB 2.0 port, users can share printers, files or play media either throughout the network at home with several different computers or even away, using the device's FTP server functions so that you never have to part with your files.

Interchangeable LAN/WAN Port - Versatile Connectivity
The TD-W8968 supports ADSL or Ethernet WAN connections (EWAN) that allow users to have the flexibility of different Internet connections among ADSL, cable or fiber modem using its interchangeable LAN/WAN port. This unique feature makes it easier when users need to change to fiber or cable services when necessary.

All-in-One Device - Clear up your desktop!
The TD-W8968 does the work of several networking devices packed into one sleek device. With an ADSL2+ modem, NAT router, switch and 300Mbps wireless access point, this device eliminates the need to purchase multiple devices to access and share a high-speed wireless Internet connection.

300Mbps Wireless - More Power to You
With 300Mbps 802.11n wireless and 4 Megabit LAN ports, the TD-W8968 is the ideal choice for bandwidth heavy users that rely on speedy, reliable connections for bandwidth intensive work or entertainment such as lag-free conference calls, HD video streaming or online gaming.

IP QoS - Efficient Bandwidth Control
IP QoS allows network administrators to allot a specific amount of available bandwidth to each network connected device simply by identifying it by its IP address, ensuring that those devices with critical tasks always have enough bandwidth and preventing any one device from hoarding bandwidth from the rest of the users on the network.

Horrible software

The software in this is horrible (upgraded to latest - dated 14/05/14). I returned it.

1. It won't allow spaces in the SSID. I have 17 wireless devices set up using an SSID that includes spaces. They all worked fine with my Netgear. To use this modem, I would have to set up all those devices again to work with a new SSID - possible but very tedious. There is no reason to not allow spaces. This is the first device I've encountered with this limitation.
2. In the setup, there's often an "Edit" link to change something, but when you click it, half of the settings are greyed out. You have to delete and start again.

There are other annoyances too, but suffice to say that I won't be buying any TP-Link products any time soon after this experience.

It does excellent wireless job. I linked it with TP-Link 300 Mbps Wireless N PCI adapter and they communicate perfectly. Coverage is excellent. Speed too - reaching my top contracted 20Mbps, THE SAME as on ethernet cable! I walked around my house (some 10-12 meters around) with Skype video call activated (tablet with N connection standard) and I never lost a frame! The person I spoke to reported constant clear transfer without any interruptions.
I like the modern look of this device although was worried that too much dust would get inside through these nice looking gaps so decided to mount it vertically along the side of my wardrobe (you can adjust antennas easily). As it appeared to be generating fair amount of heat I gave mounting screws a few extra milimeters of clearance and I got impression that ventilation is better.
The only problem was a fairly complicated installation (probably due to my complete lack of expertise in this area), so I needed help of my friend.

This router is NOT Linux compatible as stated. Everything works fine on Linux except the Print Server function which is non-existent. There are forum posts about this issue across the web. It's Tp-link's fault and they are making a false claim.
If you don't want a print server, then this router works fine. The NAS (storage) function is seemless.

Wasted hours this week installing one of these. Seems the DHCP server has a bug: if you allow it to allocate IP addresses, then try to connect more than one device (wireless or wired), it gets very confused and loses its client list, and all your devices lose all connection. (The workaround, if anyone else is stuck, is to use the 'address reservation' screen to allocate a fixed address to every device in your network.) Not fit for purpose! By rights, I should return this to DABS for a refund.
