The TL-WR741ND also features advanced functions, SPI firewall guarding your network preventing external attack, access control management which help parents and network administrator, IP QoS to arrange the bandwidth and more.
Wireless-N The TP-LINK TL-WR741ND is a draft 802.11n compliant device that delivers up to 12X faster speed and 4X farther range than standard 802.11g devices while staying backward compatible with 802.11g and 802.11b devices.
Quick Security Setup (QSS) With a simple press of the QSS button on the wireless router, the TP-LINK TL-WR741ND automatically establishes a WPA2 secure connection, instantly protecting your network.
WDS (Wireless Distribution System) Support WDS wireless bridge provides seamless bridging to expand your wireless network. WDS enables the wireless interconnection of access points in an IEEE 802.11 network, allowing a wireless network to be expanded using multiple access points without the need for a wired backbone to link them, as is traditionally required.
High Wireless Security The TP-LINK TL-WR741ND supports WPA/WPA2 encryptions, SPI firewall and access control management for robust security on your wireless network.
QoS Support The TP-LINK TL-WR741ND supports Quality of Service (QoS) to prioritize bandwidth-sensitive online traffic for smooth VoIP/IPTV streaming and lag-free online gaming.
Other Thoughts: This router is fine if you're on a budget and want something cheap to hack on with a third party firmware. I've been using OpenWrt Barrier Breaker nightlies on it for a year now.
If you want range, though, you really need to add an external antenna or buy something else. With the built in antenna, it doesn't quite even go through two walls of my house reliably. Adding a 9dBi antenna, the whole house is covered and then some, even through the steel back door. With a 15dBi antenna I have been able to use it from over 100 meters away.
This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WR741ND Wireless N150 Home Router, 150Mbps, IP QoS, 5 dBi detachable Antenna
Pros: configuration was very straight forward, and the device works great if you are connecting within 30 feet of the router and on the same floor.
Cons: If you are not on the same floor as the router there is not enough signal strength to connect, and if you are 40 feet away, even on the same level, connectivity signal is poor.
Other Thoughts: I would not recommend this for anyone with a house bigger than 800 sqft.
