We had the latest and greatest with Time Warner Cable. No major complaints but nothing to brag about either. Then came along the TP-LINK CR700. It looked pretty simple coming out of the box. Very sleek and well put together. I received the box, the power supply and a USB cord. I broke out the directions and took pictures of my old connection (just in case) and plugged in the power supply and hooked up the USB and aux cables and waited the obligatory 10 minutes. I then excitedly went to my computer and clicked the TP-LINK connection and entered the password. So at this point I was "hooked up" to the internet but no go as far as connecting to the internet. At this point I learned a VERY valuable lesson: Your internet service company MUST activate your box (once you hook it up and wait 10 minutes). You need your MAC address for this which is clearly written on the side of the modem (I took a close-up picture of the side of the box so that I would have the password, serial number and MAC numbers right in front of me). The MAC numbers are 12 digits. You just give this to your internet service provider and voila, time warping fast blazing internet speed. The whole thing, including figuring out the telephone activation part took no more than 15 minutes. Oh, and my WiFi signal went from barely to the bedrooms to all bars lit in our entire house.My pages are now popping up as fast as I can type them, and even my husband is beyond impressed. One little hiccup I ran into was our TW phone. It is not supported by this modem that I can see. But TW will give you a coax splicer and cable for free and you just use the TW cable for your phone. The great news being, if you are using your TW cable box for only your phone line (and no internet - why go back to the dinosaur ages as far as speed) they will waive your $10 monthly service box fee, so the unit will pay for itself.I did receive this item at no charge but my review wouldn't change one bit if I had paid full price.

I was looking forward to trying out this router, using it to replace an ISP rental and independent WiFi router. Hoping to ditch the rental fee!Setup was a bit of a challenge. The provided power cord was a bit short, and the prongs oddly located on the adapter, making it difficult to plug in behind a piece of furniture. Once connected, the "automatic" connection to our ISP was very slow. Eventually got it all hooked up and working without difficulty, except for the time involved.Download/upload speeds are great. Haven't noticed any lags. What has been happening is that the internet connection is unexpectedly lost, most noticeable when streaming video. It connects again in less than a minute, but not something I experienced with my previous setup. There are also some dead spaces in the furthest corners of my house(1700 sq feet per story), which were not as pronounced. I have it located in a central area, and in the same location as the previous router. The unexpected connection loss is an improvement over our previous setup, however, which required rebooting the routers at least once a week.All in all, I am satisfied with this router's performance. Had I not received it to review, however, it is unlikely I would have made the purchase. A WiFi range extender may be needed to correct the "dead" areas.

Works just like it's supposed too!
from Orange County, California
Comments about TP-Link AC1750 Wireless Dual Band DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem Router:
The product works just like it's supposed too. It was easy to set up and works great. It was a little challenging to set the password but once we figured it out everything else was easy. We live in a 1400 square foot home and the quality was great throughout the house.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great Modem - Easy to set up
from Spokane WA
This TP-LINK Wireless Modem was very easy to set up, we immediately had 5 devices connected to it and the speed for all was great. I would buy this modem and recommend it to others. I was not aware of this modem before receiving it. Overall this is a great modem much better than the one that was provided to me by comcast/Xfinity. I really like the fact that I can set up guest networks.
from Newport Beach, CA
This was very easy to set up and install. I did have to call the isp to do the activation, I tried doing online and it did not work. But the internet is now fast and works great. Changing the username and password was a breeze.
What's not to love?
By Tina the Internet Lover
Few things are more annoying than unreliable internet connections, and I'm happy to say this router helps prevent that annoyance. I only ask for high speed internet that won't cause me headaches from disconnecting every 10 minutes and will let me watch videos, surf the web, and play games in peace! If you know anything about internet connectivity, you'd know that routers like the TP-Link help make dreams like mine possible. I'm so glad I found this router, would definitely invest in buying one, and you should too!
Great Modem And Router in One
from Springfield, OR
To start off with the product was easy to set up right out of the box. I took it out and plugged it in. I had to call my internet service provider to active the device to work. That was easy. After that was activated I simple set up my local area network password and was surfing the web.

from Stanton CA

Functional and sleek

We replaced our older modem and router with this unit. Not only does it take up less space, our internet runs faster now.

Made my year old router obsolete
from San Diego, CA
Everyone knows how when your internet goes out, you sigh, and get up and then try turning off the modem, the router, the power, is it just my device? In fact, The day I got this in the mail my internet went down and I was stuck trying to figure out what the hell was wrong. My husband set it up within a few minutes. Spent a few minutes on the phone with our internet provider, and bam, internet! It's fast, and we can have multiple devices connected - I am typing on the laptop while one kid is on his ipad, and the other is watching a streaming movie on the TV and husband is on his phone with no slow downs.
from Irvine, CA
Well, I've got this as a replacement for my almost 6 years old WiFi router that was still working more or less so as you can imagine it was huge improvement for me! Set up was easy, it involved deactivating my current modem and adding new one with my service provider (that actually took the longest). After all vent finally I was able to set it up very easy and fast. I like web site that comes with it, easy and intuitive. In some reason I have problem with older devices that still use 2.4 MHz frequency. Those devices constantly lost connection and I need to go into the settings, change Authentication type and reconnect. It works some time and then I need to do it again. Kind of making me thing I did something wrong. Another frequency works fine though. This is definitely good product for somebody who doesn't like to have two devices (modem + router) and prefer have it all in one. I will definitely recommend it to everybody who need one. I have just one concern about that issue with 2.4Mhz band...
What a great product!
from Corvallis, OR
The TP-LINK Wireless Modem is so much better than the other products I have tried. This really came in handy. My stepdaughter moved in with us, and I was worried as she is a gamer like her father. But this modem was ideal, and everything has went smooth and easy. I was not aware of this before, but would now buy this wonderful modem in the future. I have already bragged to my friends and family how great this works.
