Have the tp link TL-Wr1043ND updated to the latest firmware, but i have this issue which existed before i updated to the latest firmware. Wireless suddenly drops but no problem with wired connection. I've noticed when this happens i cannot get to routers menu page, connection timeout error.
Reason i purchased this as there are lots of talks about this model and custom firmware which give you management benefits. However I've never actually read if there are any performance and stability gains.
