IP QoS – Control Your Bandwidth
With Quality of Service (QoS), you can determine how much bandwidth is allocated to each application. This ensures optimum utilization of bandwidth by controlling congestion and preventing bandwidth abuse. This way, users of a small network receive committed and specific bandwidth, preventing non-critical applications from degrading network performance.
One Button Security Setup
The TL-WR1042ND features Wi-Fi Protected Setup™ (WPS) which allows you to setup your security by simply pressing the "WPS" button. This automatically establishes a WPA2 secure connection which is more secure than WEP encryptions. Not only is WPA2 faster than normal security setups, you won’t have to remember a password!
