450Mbps Wireless N Router

TL-WR945N

A Steel Body of Power and Precision

The gentle curves and metallic elegance of the TL-WR945N is crafted from aluminum alloy. This was achieved through a new feat of industrial design: a remarkably precise, nine-step anodization and polishing process. Through a high-precision CNC machine accurate to 0.1mm, the TL-WR945N was born.

Designed for Strength from the Inside Out

The TL-WR945N wasn't just made for looks. A steel exterior effectively dissipates heat in all directions, as well as prevents outside signal interference. The end result is a modern design with all the form and function for a reliable Wi-Fi network.

Optimized Heat Dissipation
Even in high-temperature conditions, the TL-WR945N evenly distributes operational heat up to 50% faster than traditional routers, ensuring long-term stability.
Minimized Signal Interference
The metal exterior naturally shields the TL-WR945N against electromagnetic interference from other electronic devices. A clearer signal eliminates weak, dropped connections.

Powerful Processor for Superior performance

Inside the TL-WR945N lies a superior processor, solely designed by Qualcomm. It simultaneous connects multiple devices with fast, stable wireless transmission and data transfers.
