Virtual Private Network (VPN) - Up to 5 IPSec Based VPN Tunnels

Based on the IPSec protocol, TL-WR842ND allows users to setup up to 5 VPN tunnels with IKE (Internet Key Exchange) protocol on various encryption algorithms (DES/3DES/AES) and authentication algorithms (MD5/SHA1).  It’s convenient for users to connect to their home or office networks wherever the Internet is available.

Versatile USB Sharing

The TL-WR842ND’s USB 2.0 configuration allows users to share data stored on USB storage or an FTP server. Users can also share music, video and photos via the router’s built-in Media Server. What’s more, the device’s built-in Print Server makes home or office printing much more flexible.

 

IP QoS -- Control Bandwidth Reasonably

Within the wireless network, indiscriminate Internet surfing and bandwidth-guzzling downloads by internal users often leave homes or small offices with insufficient bandwidth. TL-WR842ND supports an IP QoS function, allowing optimum utilization of bandwidth and offering bandwidth control over congestion, preventing bandwidth abuse. In this way, the users of a small network receive committed and specific bandwidth, preventing non-critical applications from degrading network performance.

One Button for Secure Setup

TL-WR842ND features Wi-Fi Protected Setup™ (WPS) that allows users to almost instantly setup their secure network simply by pressing the "WPS" button on the router automatically establishing a WPA2 secure connection, which is more secure than WEP encryptions. Not only is this faster than normal secure setups but more convenient in that you don't need to remember a password!

Easy To Use

Even novice users can easily setup their networking products. The device comes with a CD featuring an Easy Setup Assistant that leads you through the setup process step-by-step, and even helps with wireless network settings and security configurations.
