TP-Link Talon AD7200 review: extremely fast 802.11ad-router

TP-Link is the first to release an 802.11ad-router

Possibilities

The most obvious possibility of the TP-Link Talon AD7200 is of course the 60 GHz connectivity. However, going to the web interface we see more things worth mentioning. First of all the AD7200 has a new interface. We were always charmed by the old one, but the new interface is definitely not bad. Especially the starting screens (Basic and Advanced) have a lot of relevant information in a clearer way than before. Where some manufacturers choose to limit the amount of possibilities when renewing their interface, it is definitely not the case here. The distinction between Basic and Advanced was not necessary for us, but some users might find this useful.

Compared with before, TP-Link clearly did their best to add as many setting options as possible. There is a possibility to utilize the router as vpn-server (OpenVPN or PPTP) and TP-Link added a Bittorrent download-client. If you do not know where to find it (under USB Settings) you can easily miss it. This is because TP-Link decided to call this function ‘Offline Download’.

As far as qos is concerced, TP-Link follows something that a lot of other manufacturers are doing. By trying to make a nicer graphical interface, TP-link aims to make the functionality more attractive for the user. Fortunately they did not switch to a completely graphical interface (for example like D-Link), but you can still create your own rules. Of course you can also change some basic settings through an app for Android or iOS.
