Good product, I've had one of these for about 3 years and it's operates fine in a small LAN (haven't used it with more than 5 devices connected). Does all the usual things, eg configure security (WEP, WPA, or WPA2, with AES or TKIP), restrict MAC access, set channel, act as an AP, a repeater or a bridge, shows who's connected, DHCP server, etc. Only gripes are that it can only be configured by the in-built web interface and not by SSH or telnet, and it has a useless syslog server (only logs the time it was switched on but not useful things like who's connected and when, nor can the syslog be sent to a monitoring server). This model now appears to be discontinued. The hyperlink to the TP-Link product page gives a 404 Page Not Found error, and it can't even be found by searching for the model number on the TP-Link website. Although you can still download the manual and datasheet.
