What customers say about "Network"
TP-LINK TL-WR841N Wireless N Cable Router
  • It's feature rich, good signal strength, modern look and easy to set up.
  • The speed is impressive - I was pleasantly surprised to find it faster than using ethernet cables.
  • Connected the TP-link WAN port to the single port left active on the Superhub and voila!
  • This router is really good. It’s so simple to set up.
  • It has 2 antennas for good coverage. There are plenty of configuration options in the setup.
TP-LINK TL-WR940N Wi-Fi Router
  • This does have three antennas that are positionable and has one LED light on the front top of the unit.
  • With all those antennas, it must have a longer range.
  • Its not a huge house by any means but with 3 antennas and the power boosted to the highest im sure my neighbors could connect if i let them.
  • Their WAN port is only 10/100. This company needs to take away their 450Mbps speed advertising statements.
  • Simple installation with pretty easy set-up. But It immediately started dropping the WAN connection.
