Incredible Wireless Performance.
With 300Mbps 802.11 n wireless and 4 Fast Ethernet LAN ports, the TD-W8961N is the ideal choice for bandwidth heavy users that depend on speedy, reliable connections for bandwidth-intensive work or entertainment such as lag-free conference calls, HD video streaming, or online gaming.
Ideal for Multimedia Application.
Port VLAN binds specific LAN ports and PVCs for different services like IPTV. The TD-W8961N’s built-in QoS engine provides various QoS policies that help prioritize Internet traffic to permit smooth IPTV streaming and lag-free online gaming. Therefore people can experience the benefits of a smooth network connection with no worrying about traffic congestion. Combined with IGMP multicast and IGMP snooping features the TD-W8961N makes an ideal solution for multimedia applications.
Advanced Network Security and Flexible Management.
The TD-W8961N utilizes NAT and SPI (stateful packet inspection) firewalls which inspect the contents of incoming packets before they are allowed in, preventing potential attacks from across the Internet. For added convenience, it supports access control based on MAC addresses, IP addresses, domain names or applications like MSN or Yahoo Messenger, to ensure that parents and network managers can establish restricted access policies for children or staff. Besides web configuration, the TD-W8961N also supplies TR-069 and SNMP, which automatically update the device’s firmware and other settings when they become available from users’ ISP. Each of these features helps users to enhance their network’s security and make network management more flexible.
TP Link TD-W8961N Modem Router Reviews:
The TP-Link TD-W8961ND is almost identical to the TD-W8951ND except that it has an extra antenna. This allows it to operate at a theoretical top speed of 300Mbit/s by using MIMO (multiple-input and multiple-output) technology. This is a hopelessly optimistic claim, however, 300N wireless access points often perform better over longer distances than 150N models.
TP Link TD-W8961N setup is reasonably straightforward: a guide on the supplied disc explains how to attach the router to a PC and phone line, and logging into the router’s web interface reveals a wizard to set up Internet access and a wireless network, including security. For the majority of people, this should be enough to get them up and running.
Despite the extra antenna, we got the exact same results in our close-range wireless test for both the TD-W8961ND and the single-antenna TD-W8951ND. The difference in cause the Far test was within a fairly narrow margin of error. But in the Very Far test, the TD-W8961ND managed almost twice the speed, coming in at an impressive 11Mbit/s– faster than most broadband connections and more than enough for streaming video.
Wired connections are less impressive, with Fast (100Mb/s) rather than Gigabit (1000Mb/s) Ethernet ports and no USB ports. However, this is the least expensive router we’ve seen that supports MIMO. Whether or not it’s worth paying the extra ₤ 7 over TP-Link’s own TD-W8951ND is up for debate, but for larger homes where long-range performance is important, we reckon it is.
If you want affordable solution for your broadband connection then this is the product for you. TP Link TD-W8961N comes with every feature that you needed to run your small home network. The looks, range, feature and performance of this device is best for bucks. There is no dropout in connection at all. Signals strength is always full in my 1200 sq. feet flat because dual-antenna. So, I am totally satisfied with this product and will encourage every other to buy it.
TP Link TD-W8961N Modem Router has a no-nonsense design that even comes with a power button. It knows it’s a budget modem router and tries to play to that strength offering some ease-of-use features for novice users, but still offers a raft of more advanced options.
