What This Product Does

54Mbps Wireless AP/Client Router TL-WR543G is dedicated to Small Office / Home Office (SOHO) allowing you to create a better wireless connection than ever, sharing Internet Access, online-gaming or video streaming. Also, TL-WR543G supports WDS wireless bridge offering seamless bridging to expand your network coverage, making it convenient for you to pick up the signal during different rooms or offices. Specially, it features AP Client Router Mode, which supports WISP connection by PPPOE, Dynamic or Static IP, making the wired computer sharing the local network.

4X Range–eXtended Range Technology

TL-WR543G complies with the IEEE 802.11g/b standards and adopts 2x to 3x eXtended Range WLAN transmission technology so that transmission distance is 2 -3 times that of traditional 11g/b solutions, up to 855.36m tested in China. That is to say, transmission range is extended to 4-9 times, which could effectively improve wireless performance.

Multiple Working Modes

As well as conventional router, TL-WR543G offers AP Router Mode, providing PPPOE, Dynamic or Static IP connection, etc, with built-in NAT and DHCP server. Besides AP Router Mode, TL-WR543G features AP Client Mode so that the local computer can access internet with WISP connection. Therefore, various working mode can satisfy different areas for wireless performance.

WPA / WPA2 Encryptions

As for the security of WI-FI connection, WEP encryption has been no longer the strongest and safest guards for outside threats. TL-WR543G provides WPA/WPA2 encryptions (Both Personal and Enterprises) that are created by the WI-FI Alliance industry group, preventing your network from outside intrusions efficiently.

Detachable Antenna

TL-WR543G offers 5dBi external antenna that can be rotated and adjusted in different directions to fit various operation environments, and can bring better performance than the internal antenna. For even more demanding applications, the detachable antenna can be replaced with diverse antennas to show even greater flexibility and wider wireless coverage.
