TP-Link TL-WR841ND Wireless Router. Status Page

TP-Link TL-WR841ND Wireless Router.
Status page.
Hardware version is WR841N v5

I bought this router to upgrade my Home LAN to 300Mbps 802.11n. And to study in details design of modern wireless router based on Atheros chipset.
After "playing" with standard firmware provided by TP-Link, I plan to flash it with OpenWRT firmware, or other Open Source firmware/Embedded Linux.
Purpose of this post (and photos on Flickr) is to make short review of router "as it is", and make snapshots how User Interface looks.
