What This Product Does
300Mbps Wireless Speed
With Wireless speed up to 300Mbps, TL-WR842ND ensures speedy, uninterrupted wireless coverage for home and office networking.
TL-WR842ND supports guest network. It’s uniquely designed for users to set up additional wireless networks with another SSID and Password for guests or friends. This ensures users are safe and there are no performance conflicts with different networks.
Virtual Private Network (VPN) - Up to 5 IPSec Based VPN Tunnels
Based on the IPSec protocol, TL-WR842ND allows users to setup up to 5 VPN tunnels with IKE (Internet Key Exchange) protocol on various encryption algorithms (DES/3DES/AES) and authentication algorithms (MD5/SHA1). It’s convenient for users to connect to their home or office networks wherever the Internet is available.
Versatile USB Sharing
The TL-WR842ND’s USB 2.0 configuration allows users to share data stored on USB storage or an FTP server. Users can also share music, video and photos via the router’s built-in Media Server. What’s more, the device’s built-in Print Server makes home or office printing much more flexible.
IP QoS -- Controlled Bandwidth Allocation
The speed of your wireless network is extremely temperamental, and can be due to indiscriminate users or applications hogging all the bandwidth. TP-LINK's TL-WR842ND supports IP QoS (Quality of Service) function, which offers optimum utilization of bandwidth through the use of bandwidth congestion control. This means that users of small networks will enjoy bandwidth allocation specifically for them, preventing non-critical wireless usage 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
Even novice users can easily setup their networking products. The device comes with a CD featuring an Easy Setup Assistant that leads you through the setup process step-by-step, and even helps with wireless network settings and security configurations.
