Overview

What This Product Does

With 450Mbps Dual Band Wireless combined with USB sharing for files, media, or printing in addition to Gigabit ports, the TL-WR2543ND is the most robust networking foundation available, for work and play. 

450Mbps Wireless Speed -- Experience Limitless Wireless

With three dual-band antennas, TL-WR2543ND generates a maximum theoretical wireless throughput of 450Mbps over the 2.4GHz or 5GHz channels utilizing a 3 X 3 Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) configuration. Compared with legacy 802.11n 300Mbps products, the router has the speed to provide advanced and stable 450Mbps wireless connections, allowing users to benefit from the full potential of their wireless networks. 

5GHz Connections – Increased Stability and Performance

With the proliferation of devices working over 2.4GHz, wireless interruption has become increasingly obtrusive to wireless connections; from cordless phones, microwaves, automatic garage door openers, and don't forget neighboring wireless networks, this channel has become somewhat crowded.

TL-WR2543ND supports the establishment of a 5GHZ wireless connection for home networks at 450Mbps, transmitting data on the less crowded 5GHz band to avoid interference, to offer significantly improved wireless stability and overall performance.

Multi-Function USB Port

 (1) Sharing a Printer with Multiple Computers

It is no secret that printers are often difficult to use, simply because a computer often must be connected directly to it in order to print. With the TL-WR2543ND, users need simply connect the USB printer to the USB port on the back of the router and run the USB Printer Controller to access the printer to wireless print from anywhere in the home or office, from multiple devices.

(2) Share Files & Media, at Home & Away

TL-WR2543ND allows users to attach a range of USB storage devices directly to the router, making it easy and conveniently for users to access their data locally or through the Internet with FTP server functions.

A built-in Media Server lets users share music, videos, and photos with the media player on their PCs, X-BOX 360s, PS3s and other compatible devices.

Gigabit Ports - Incredible Bandwidth

With built-in gigabit Ethernet switch, TL-WR2543ND provides 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, such as high definition video, in minutes instead of hours.

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-WR2543ND 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.

One Button Security Setup

Compatible with Wi-Fi Protected Setup™ (WPS), TL-WR2543ND features 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, which is more secure when compared with WEP encryptions.

Not only is this faster than normal security setups but more convenient in that users needn’t remember a password!

Easy to Use

The device comes with a CD featuring an Easy Setup Assistant that leads users through the setup process step-by-step, and even helps with wireless network settings and security configurations. With setups this easy, even novice users can have their networks up and running in mere minutes.
