  • IP QoS -- Control Bandwidth Reasonably

    Within the wireless network, indiscriminate Internet surfing and bandwidth-guzzling downloads by internal users often leave homes or small offices with insufficient bandwidth. TL-WR842ND supports an IP QoS function, allowing optimum utilization of bandwidth and offering bandwidth control over congestion, preventing bandwidth abuse. In this way, the users of a small network receive committed and specific bandwidth, preventing non-critical applications from degrading network performance.

  • One Button for Secure Setup

    TL-WR842ND features Wi-Fi Protected Setup™ (WPS) that allows users to almost instantly setup their secure network simply by pressing the "WPS" button on the router automatically establishing a WPA2 secure connection, which is more secure than WEP encryptions. Not only is this faster than normal secure setups but more convenient in that you don't need to remember a password!
  • Easy To Use

    TL-WR842ND comes with a CD utility that helps you setup your device, adjust wireless network settings, and configure security options. With setup this easy, you can be up and running in minutes.
