Gigabit Ports - Incredible Bandwidth
With built-in Gigabit Ethernet Switch, TL-WR1042ND provides more powerful data processing abilities, which unleashes the full potential of the N-abled freedom, eliminating bottlenecks in transferring speed between megabit wired and 11n wireless connection. Meanwhile, everything they do will be faster and more efficient, thus users are sharing large files such as high definition video in minutes instead of hours.
Versatile USB port
The TL-WR1042ND’s USB 2.0 configuration allows users to share data stored on USB storage or an FTP server. Users can also share music, videos 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.
Wireless N - Extreme Speed & Range
Complies with the IEEE 802.11n standard, users can create a wireless network and get up to 18X the speed and 6X the range of conventional 11g products. 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 powerful N technologies, the router is also able to mitigate data loss over long distances and through obstacles turning your home and even your yard into one big hot - spot.
Easy to Use
One Button Security Setup
TL-WR1042ND features WI-FI Protected Setup™ (WPS) also known as QSS that allows users to almost instantly setup their security simply by pressing the "WPS" button automatically establishing a WPA2 secure connection, which is more security compared with WEP encryptions. Not only is this faster than normal security setups but more convenient in that you don’t need to remember a password!
IP QoS – Control Your Bandwidth
Within the wireless network, indiscriminate Internet surfing and bandwidth-guzzling downloads by internal users often leave home or small offices with insufficient bandwidth for crucial tasks.TL-WR1042ND supports IP QoS (Quality of Service), allowing optimum utilization of bandwidth and offering bandwidth control over congestion, preventing bandwidth abuse. In this way, users of a small network receive committed and specific bandwidth, preventing non-critical applications from degrading network performance.
Customer Reviews of TP-LINK TL-WR1042ND 300Mbps Wireless N Gigabit Router
This is a great router for a great price on sale. It was very easy to install. It came with all the wires needed. I bought this to extend the range of my wireless router. I had an issue with it only once so far, but turning the power off and on resolved the issue.
I was having tough time making it work and was almost going to return the product to buy something else. Tried almost a week to make it work. Finally yesterday I had been able to connect to the devices and talking to each other. The set up steps are very critical, need to have a lot of patience and knowledge on how these technologies work. Hopefully it will keep running :-)
