TP-Link TD-8816 External ADSL2/2+ Ethernet Router
Very Good
Below Average
Rating: 9/10

Review Date: 11/23/12
Cons: n/a

Pros: great value
got this for $20 after taxrunning solid for 9 months w/o rebootgreat value

Review Date: 11/13/12
Cons: None for the moment

Pros: Small, Cheap, it has bridge mode.
A real bargain for the price, work well with Teksavvy.

Review Date: 09/24/12
Cons: runs a little but then again the speedstream I had ran hotter

Pros: very small, low price, easy to use, interface is easy to set up. Has an on/off button
This was the easiest piece of equipment I ever installed. I simply replaced my speedstream with this one and everything worked without any changes out of the box. I have a wireless router, and my speedstream was in bridged mode. Verified the speeds between the two and the speeds are more or less the same. I verified the interface to make sure there was no catch and it was already in bridge mode, and the defaults worked straight with my Bell connection.

Review Date: 09/14/12
Cons: hoped it had more back ports

Pros: easy to setup, supports bridge mode,
Bought this a modem, and setting this up was a breeze. There is a 'wizard' that allows you to set up your internet, and there is also a more advanced settings page with more options. Good deal, and I would recommend this to my friends if they want an inexpensive modem.

Review Date: 08/24/12
Cons: can handle up to 10Mbps lines

Pros: Okay for Basic DSL
I got this device for 9.99+tax as a backup. This device needs to have security manually configured based on reviews. Exercise caution and this is also very outdated hardware. do not buy if you are planning to use with with NEW DSL services.

Review Date: 04/25/12
Cons: - None for the moment

Pros: - Stable and good performance- Nice look- Simple and easy to install
I have not much to say. It worked perfectly with my internet service provider (AEI Internet, with Bell, in Montreal).

Review Date: 04/09/12
Cons: - wish it had wifi

Pros: - cheap, light on power consumption
Got this for $21 including taxes. Working well with no problems on Teksavvy. Good for ADSL but I heard it's not as stable for ADSL2+.

Review Date: 03/27/12
Cons: None

Pros: Good for the price
I upgraded my DSL connection to 16Mbps, so I needed to get a new modem. This worked perfectly. No problems.

Review Date: 12/25/11
Cons: - Device gets hot to the touch

Pros: - Cheap- Does its job
I had to buy this since my old Speedstream died. So far, it's been doing a fine job. I am getting full advertised speeds with Teksavvy: 10.57Mbps down and 0.67Mbps up.

Review Date: 10/17/11
Cons: None

Pros: Price and Stability
TP-Link is fast becoming a favorite of mine. Their pricing is amazing but it's the performance that impresses me the most. When I replaced my old provider supplied DSL modem with this one, it TRIPLED my throughput! It detected all the right settings without hardly a tweak. Feature rich settings for the professional as well. Of the 6 or so units I've bought for my clients, only one has issues with tuning in to my DSL line and chances are it is the providers line coming in that is the problem anyway. One day I'll get a chance to swap out the unit to test it for real, but every unit, once connected is very stable and fast. With the one bad site all I ever had to do was unplug and replug the line a couple of times and it would sync in. A great product!

Review Date: 08/16/11
Cons: Not very fast (YMMV)

Pros: CheapDoes it's job
Got this to replace a 516 Thompson, but turns out it didn't run too well with our line. Speed dropped down significantly. Got another 516 and speeds were back to normal

Review Date: 07/08/11
Cons: - Looks cheap and it's white rather than black.

Pros: - Wow... only 19$ !!!- Same thing if not even better than those ur ISP will sell you for 75$.- Supports ADSL2+ even if we won't see it before 10 years in Canada.
Never buy a modem from ur ISP, it's total rip off. Get this one which does the job plenty well enough. It either works or doesn't so..

Review Date: 06/05/11
Cons: runs a bit hotfor some reason, mine takes 3+ minutes to sync after a soft reboot

Pros: better line stats and more stable than all my previous modemssupports ADSL2 (but i have only tested ADSL1)price
It's hard to believe that a brand new DSL modem can be had for less than $30, it seems like just yesterday these things were going for over $100. i'd give it 5 stars if it weren't for the fact that it runs hot and i've had bad luck in the past with electronics that run hot.

Review Date: 02/28/11
Cons: None problems/weaknesses

Pros: -Price-Functionality-Looks
Fantastic looking modem, using it with a DIR-825 from D-Link. Clean cut finish, easily goes well with other network devices. Got this working very fast, it has very user friendly software.Great basic modem. Currently using with Telus.

Review Date: 02/21/11
Cons: none

Pros: Cheap, do what is supposed to do
Good router. Specialy good if you're switching from bell to teksavvy and it's cheap

Review Date: 01/10/11
Cons: Only 1 Ethernet port

Pros: CheapVery small form factor
Overall you get what you pay for with this device. It works as advertised and is good for a single computer home or being connected to a router. It's very cheap and does the job perfectly. The website is also very easy to navigate. I would recommend it if you are looking for a cheap, no-frills ADSL Modem.

Review Date: 12/21/10
Cons: none.

Pros: price and performance
bought it to try with Colbanet in Qc. after 3 months still working strong. some has reported with heat problem. I am lucky to get the unit that don't overheat. pair it with DLink DIR-655 and the whole wireless devices run smoothly in any corner of house from basement up to 3th floor.

Review Date: 11/27/10
Cons: - None that I can think of

Pros: - Works great with Teksavvy- Looks decent enough
I bought this instead of the SpeedTouch 516 to work with Teksavvy. From my past experience, the SpeedTouch worked, but was way too expensive. The TD-8816 works just as well and costs half less. Currently synching at 5056/800 with Teksavvy Premium DSL

Review Date: 09/09/10
Cons: None

Pros: Not expensive
At good modem replacement if you don't want to buy one from your ISP. Easy to setup and works fine with my D link wireless N router. Currently using it with Colbanet (a Bell wholesale service reseller).

Review Date: 08/31/10
Cons: none really

Pros: Works very well, easy to set up
It took me 5 minutes to set it all up. It was basically plug and play since I was replacing a dieing modem.

Review Date: 07/17/10
Cons: It's not smaller or black

Pros: great modem, works with teksavvy
Very good. Bought 2 of them but I'm only using one because of dry loop fees. Haven't tried opening it up yet, maybe I'll give it a shot some other day.

Review Date: 06/02/10
Cons: none so far

Pros: Cheap and ultra easy to set up
Well for 20$ this is an impressive unit. It was incredibly easy to set up and so far it hasn't crashed once. I'm currently using it with Telus and it took about 2 min to make it work in bridge mode with the right settings. The wizard makes it user friendly. Best ADSL modem out there for the price...

Review Date: 05/29/10
Cons: None so far

Pros: CheapFully configurable
This modem/router works great with Telus in BC. I bought this to replace the Siemens SE567 wireless gateway, since I wanted to keep using my own wireless-N router with dd-wrt firmware; Telus refused to send me a Thomson Speedtouch when I signed up, and when I asked for a switch they said it would cost me $50. I could buy my own Speedtouch here on NCIX for that price, but I'm cheap so I gave this TP-Link a try. So far, so good.Be warned, though, you'll be on your own for technical assistance should anything go wrong with your Telus connection, as their "tech support" most assuredly cannot help you with non-standard equipment.

Review Date: 05/11/10
Cons: - None yet

Pros: - CHEAP! - Works well as a bridge
Used this to replace my Acanac modem that had crapped out. But it in bridge mode, hooked it up to my router, and my internet's been solid ever since.

Review Date: 11/30/09
Cons: None.

Pros: Works great with Bell's DSL network.
This modem works very well on Bell Canada's DSL network. I'm using it with TekSavvy (a Bell wholesale service reseller) and it hasn't given me any issues whatsoever.
