Made by TP-LINK, the TL-WR841N 300 Mbps Wireless-N Router enables multiple computers to share one Internet connection, and is designed specifically to meet the networking requirements of home offices and small businesses. This combined wired/wireless network connection device offers wireless transmission rates of up to 300 Mbps along with four 10/100 Mbps ports for wired connections. Sporting a sleek exterior, the Wireless-N Router can be mounted on a wall or placed horizontally on a table or desk.

Exceptional Performance and Stability with MIMO

The 300 Mbps Wireless-N Router offers wireless transmission speeds of up to 300 Mbps and complies with the IEEE 802.11n standard. MIMO (Multi Input Multi Output) technology delivers improved wireless transmission rates and stability, while two omnidirectional antennas are designed to provide optimal wireless performance, transmission rates, stability, and coverage.

It shows more excellent abilities of mitigating data loss over long distances and through obstacles in a small office or a large apartment, even in a steel-and-concrete building. Above all, you could easily pick up the wireless network during long-distance connection where legacy 11g products may not! This also means the router has the speed to work smoothly with almost any bandwidth intensive application including VoIP, HD streaming, or online gaming, without the lag.

 

Using its channel selection feature, CCA technology automatically avoids channel conflicts and promotes high wireless transmission performance in long-distance and high-interference environments.

In addition to its wireless capabilities, the Wireless-N Router has four interior interchangeable 10/100 Mbps ports, allowing you to connect up to four computers directly to the router.

QSS Provides Worry-Free Wireless Security

The router's QSS (Quick Secure Setup) function complies with the WPS standard to ensure the security of your wireless network. A built-in firewall features IP, MAC, and URL filtering to flexibly control online access and time.

The Wireless-N Router also supports SSID broadcast control, MAC address access control, WEP encryption, WPA/WPA2, and WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK authentication. These combined security measures are designed to deliver stronger, safer protection and guard against intruders.

 

On-Demand Dialing, Online Access, and More

This Wireless-N Router supports on-demand dialing, online access management, automatic virus isolation, Universal Plug and Play protocols, and Dynamic DNS, and has an advanced system security record.

 

A user-friendly software interface enables all users to easily configure the router and supports free web-based software updates.

Quality Service without Interruptions

Among the wireless network, indiscriminate Internet surfing and bandwidth-guzzling downloads by internal users often leave home or small office with insufficient bandwidth. This router supports the IP QoS function, allowing optimum utilization of bandwidth and offers bandwidth control over congestion, preventing the bandwidth abuse. In this way, the users of a small network receive committed and specific bandwidth, preventing non-critical applications from degrading network performance.

Powerful Parental Controls for Safe Browsing

Integrated parental control functions allow for precise control over children's Internet activities, including restricting certain websites and limiting the amount of time spent on the Internet. The simple web-based interface makes setting schedules and adding new computers a quick and easy process.

Easy Setup

The device comes with a CD with an Easy Setup Assistant that leads you through the setup process step-by-step, and even helps with wireless network settings and security configurations, which is convenient to the users, especially for novice users.

Product and Warranty Information

The router is compatible with 802.11b/g/n protocol wireless products as well as Intel Centrino technology.

Featuring a sleek design, the Wireless-N Router can be mounted on a wall or placed horizontally on a table or desk. It measures 1.3 by 7.6 by 5.1 inches (H x W x D).

The Wireless-N Router is backed by a two-year warranty.

Some suggestions:(1) Use the instructions in the Users Guide for installing the router - the installation software on the CD didn't work for me, but the written instructions are clear enough.(2) Update the firmware before you get too far in configuring the router.There was a nasty bug in the installed firmware that caused the router to freeze if you tried to display wireless statistics. This is fixed in the firmware dated August, 2010.(2) If you're thinking of replacing an old b/g wireless rout ... er with this, don't toss the old router yet!Many wireless devices such as printers and music systems (like Sonos) do not support the 11n standard yet. At first I tried running the TP-Link router in mixed b/g/n mode. For some reason the performance was exceptionally slow. But, it's easy to link your old router into the network so that the b/g devices will use the old router. The TP-Link router can then be set to 11n-only for excellent performance for devices that support it. Here's how to do it: - Give each router a different IP address, say 192.168.1.1 and 192.168.1.2. Make sure both are outside the range of dynamic IP addresses. - Give both routers the same SSID so that they will form a single network. - Assign each router to different wireless channels. (1 or 6 or 11 are usually recommended). - Turn off DHCP or other WAN support in the b/g router. Set up the TP-Link with WAN support (such as DHCP) and connect to the ADSL or cable modem. - In the b/g router, add the MAC addresses of the 11n devices to its MAC filter list. These are devices you DON'T want to connect to it. (Of course, if you have many more 11n devices than b/g ones, do the reverse: create a filter list with only the devices you DO want to connect). - Link the b/g router to any LAN port on the TP-Link router with an Ethernet cable. That should be it. Enjoy! More >

I bought two of these routers with the intention of flashing them with DD-WRT. Both flashed extremely fast and easily without any hitches and can be flashed via the router's web GUI (no Telnet, etc). Both routers have been running non stop ever since flashing them and have worked perfectly. I have been very pleased thus far with TP-Link products, especially after having a lot of issues with Belkin routers (hangs, slooooow response, rebooting, over-heating, etc). You can't beat the price vs featu ... res with this TL-WR1043ND (for sure when using DD-WRT, but even the original TP-Link firmware is still very usable). I my opinion this is the best price vs features gigabit router on the market for DD-WRT.For those interested, here are some hardware specs:Platform...........Atheros AR9132 @ 400 MHzFCC ID.............TE7WR1043NXWireless NIC...Atheros AR9103 3x3 MIMOWLAN..............802.11b/g/nLAN.................4/gigabit...

This router is great. I bought one about 4 months ago and it has been running since the day I got it. No freezes, lockups, no drop in speed.The only things about this router is, do not use the CD that comes with it. Manually set the network up in the router. If you have a basic knowledge of routers/networking it is an easy setup. Also, it does run a little hot. However, if you elevate it to allow air to pass under it as well it keeps it considerably cooler.I would buy this product again.
