This router performes very well as a wireless unit. great range and outstanding speed. I am getting 250 Mbs with WPA2 security on and it peaks my 250 Mbs cable speed easily. The feature set is very weak and using a usb drive nearly impossible except for sharing music. Can only connect via ftp or through media player making it very difficult to map a drive and use it as a backup or to share non media files with others in the home. Just purchase a network drive with an rj45 connector and forget the usb drive. Print server works fine via usb and is simple to setup. simply install the small software applet and your connected. Regarding opening/closing ports it is overly complex
Tested it with INSTEN 150m Mini USB Wireless LAN Adapter that i got at overstock for under $5.00 Works as it should, good coverage especially with clear line of sight. Use it in my truck and love it, the only thing the magnet is not too strong, I wouldn't go more than 60 MPH with it still attached. Other than that its a great buy.
The TP-LINK RE-590T is a trustworthy piece of equipment. My needs were a bit more outdoors rather than a stronger wifi connection for my PC. Their support is OUTSTANDING. I had some configuration questions and the lady I spoke with walked me through step by step. Take the plunge if you need INDOOR wifi extension.
