TP Link TL-WR2543ND 450Mbps Dual-Band Wireless N Gigabit Router
With 450 Mbps dual-band wireless, Gigabit ports and USB sharing for files, media, or printing, the TL-WR2543ND is the most robust networking foundation available for work and play. The 3 dual-band antennas generate a maximum theoretical wireless throughput of 450 Mbps over the 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz channels utilising a 3 X 3 Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) configuration. Compared with legacy 802.11n 300 Mbps products, the router has the speed to provide advanced and stable wireless connections, allowing users to benefit from the full potential of their wireless networks.
With the majority of devices working over 2.4 GHz, wireless interruption – from cordless phones, microwaves, and neighbouring wireless networks – has become commonplace. The TL-WR2543ND supports the establishment of a 5 GHz wireless connection for home networks at 450 Mbps, transmitting data on the less crowded 5 GHz band to avoid interference, and offering significantly improved wireless stability and overall performance.
The multifunction USB port can be used to connect a printer or external USB storage device directly to the router, instantly sharing the USB-connected device with other users on the network. Printing is effected through a Printer Setup Wizard, and USB storage devices are easily and conveniently available for users to access their data, either locally or through the Internet (with FTP server functions). A built-in Media Server lets users share music, videos, and photos with PC, PS3, XBox 360 and other compatible devices. The inclusion of a gigabit Ethernet switch enables the TL-WR2543ND to offer more powerful data processing abilities, eliminating bottlenecks in transferring speed between megabit wired and 11n wireless connections. Meanwhile everything users do will be faster and more efficient, thus allowing for larger file sharing.
Compatible with Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS), the TL-WR2543ND features a Quick Security Setup that allows users to almost instantly setup their security simply by pressing the WPS button on the router and automatically establishing a WPA2 secure connection. Not only is this faster than normal security setups but more convenient in that users needn’t remember a password.
