TP-LINK Routers

SORT BY:
Take full advantage of the fast internet service reaching your home and office by networking your wireless devices with TP-Link routers. A router serves as a bridge between different Wi-Fi-enabled mobile devices, computers and other appliances. It moves data packets between devices in the same network and also connects them to the internet. You can find a wide selection of these wireless network hubs on Staples.

Choose the Right TP-Link Router to Enjoy High-Speed Connections
The two most important factors to consider when shopping for internet routers are Wi-Fi speed and range. Wireless speed largely depends on the Wi-Fi technology implemented in a router. You only need an 802.11n router if you spend more time browsing, downloading files and streaming music. Such devices have a maximum throughput of 600Mbps. Wireless AC routers have a maximum speed of 5300Mbps. Choose an 802.11ac router if there are multiple users running bandwidth-intensive tasks, like 4K streaming and online gaming, on your network.

Routers also have Ethernet ports for establishing wired connections with internet-enabled devices lacking Wi-Fi. A fast Ethernet port has a 10/100Mbps interface but a Gigabit Ethernet port is ten times faster. Go for a Gigabit router if your internet connection speed exceeds 100Mbps.

Avoid Network Congestion With Multi-Band TP-Link Routers
A single-band router has a single radio and transmits data packets over the 2.4GHz frequency. The frequency gets crowded quickly because most wireless devices use it. A dual-band router avoids wireless interference and network congestion by adding a second radio transmitting at 5GHz. It reroutes high-bandwidth tasks to this frequency in order to free up space and maintain network performance. To maintain quality of service when a lot of users and devices join your network, get a tri-band router. This has one 2.4GHz band and two 5GHz bands. Most tri-band models are Wireless AC routers while you can get a dual-band Wireless N or AC router.

What Is a WiGig Router?
A WiGig router is a superfast network device that offers data transfer speeds up to 7Gbps and uses the 802.11ad Wi-Fi standard. It is faster than a Wireless AC router and adds a 60GHz band for high-speed transmission. TP-Link is the first network equipment manufacturer to release an 802.11ad Wi-Fi router.

How Do You Improve the Wireless Range of a Router?
You can extend the reach of the Wi-Fi signal coming from your TP-Link wireless router by changing its location, rearranging the orientation of its antennas, eliminating wireless interference, boosting its signal strength and adding a Wi-Fi repeater. First, move the router around your home or office until you find the spot that provides the longest range. Orientate the antennas by pointing each pair perpendicularly. To eliminate wireless interference, place the router as far away as possible from another router, cordless phones, microwaves and other appliances operating in the 2.4GHz band. Boosting wireless signals involves installing custom firmware. Lastly, place a Wi-Fi repeater or extender where the router's signals begin to fade.

What Is the Difference Between Beamforming and QoS?
Quality of Service or QoS is a router feature that prioritizes certain types of data traffic. For example, you can set a router to provide more bandwidth for video streaming than competing applications like Skype calls and file downloads. Beamforming is an antenna technology that focuses wireless signals in a straight line towards specific devices on a network. This increases Wi-Fi signal strength and range for the target devices.
