Piece of crap!
Added to office network, set configuration, trying to understand/find port forwarding was like pulling teeth! Found it but still can't RDP in from public side! Not even tried VPN yet! Ugh... Dropped and older Cisco 4400N in instead, boom, everything's working as expected.
The configuration interface it idiotic and NON-Standard and I'M AN EXPERT! If TP-Link really wants market share they need to make better EQ with interfaces for intelligent people not children of a different language and they should make EQ that works out of the box! Ultimately, this EQ is a joke!

Totally Agree not impressed with the interface, Port forwarding annoyed me the most. Now I cant find QOS..

How can you call yourself an expert. I'm a novice and got it working in 3 minutes...
