Buying this modem it was really bad idea! Usually I am not so negative but common! almost 2 months convinced that the problem is coming from my ISP but finally today I realized than so many people have the same issue on the WIFI conectivity! So many threads on internet reporting the same problem! Maybe it has really good long range signal but dropping the signal every some time for 5-10 minutes ? How that is possible? And no answer from TP - Link support! I am VERY DISAPPOINTED wasting so many hours of my time for this modem which will end to the the bin!
No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Great moden, great WiFi. Replaced a LinkSys that had to be restarted once a day due to ADSL dropouts.

Not a single problem with the W8979 !

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
