Overview

What This Product Does

Complying with IEEE 802.11n, IEEE 02.11g and IEEE 802.11b standards, TP-LINK TL-WN861N is designed to provide a excellent wireless performance for internet sharing, downloading files or video streaming, etc. And the Easy Setup Assistant coming with the CD will guide you to complete the whole installation and security configuration step by step.

Wireless N - Speed & Range

Complying with the IEEE 802.11n standard, TL-WN861N can easily establish a wireless network and get up to 15X the speed and 5X the range of conventional 11g products. Compared with legacy 54M products, TL-WN861N delivers performance enhancements, allowing you to have a more joyful surfing experience, including sharing files, watching streaming media.

CCA Technology - Stable Wireless Signals

Clear Channel Assessment (CCA) automatically avoids channel conflicts using its clear channel selection feature and fully realizes the advantages of channel binding, greatly enhanced the wireless performance.

WPA / WPA2 Encryptions - Advanced Security

As for the security of WI-FI connection, WEP encryption has been no longer the strongest and safest guards for outside intrusions. TL-WN861N provides WPA/WPA2 encryptions that are created by the WI-FI Alliance industry group, preventing the wireless network from outside threats.
