The TL-WR1043ND Ultimate Wireless N Gigabit Router provides wired and wireless network connection with a 4-port Gigabit switch that allows wireless access to multiple devices in your home without running unsightly wires.

The TL-WR1043ND is backward compatible with 802.11b and g and thanks to Align technology from Atheros Communications Inc., is forward compatible with higher-performance, multi-stream, MIMO-based 802.11n which offers an impressive 300Mbps at a very reasonable price. Besides high speed, 802.11n gives you great performance even at long distances, as well as an SPI firewall to prevent your network from being compromised. Other security features include SSID broadcast control, MAC address access control, WEP encryption, WPA/WPA2, and WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK authentication.  It has three external antennas to enhance transmission rates and coverage while CAA technology prevents channel conflicts.

Besides home use, the TL-WR1043ND is a great choice for businesses since it offers priority, support and stability to multiple large bandwidth-consuming applications which are subject to interruptions, like voice and video. It also has a USB storage port on the back of the router to connect mass storage devices.

      Once I got it working it seems to be a nice model. Great performance for the money. However, it took a lot of hair pulling and finally a phone call to find out I needed some string of numbers; 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.0.0 to get it configured correctly. Not mentioned in the instructions.

        Comments about TP-Link TL-WR1043ND Ultimate Wireless N Gigabit Router:

        This is a relatively new brand to the U.S. market as many people I have recommended TP-Link items to have not hear ot it before. That being said, the performance, features, and price for their wireless routers really challenge or outperform many established brands such as Netgear and D Link. I have some of their wired switches that work perfectly. The build quality and design is excellent and the range surpasses that of a similarly designed D Link that cost even more. I do not comment on setup or place stars for the setup of routers because the reality is that doing it the right way is a process. Yes, some people like the 5 step and done approach, but spending the time with settings pays off in slight increases in performance. Regardless, this should be easy for most to set up securely. This sits in an office and all 4 laptops and 2 smartphones get excellent coverage and bandwidth. in my personal opinion, I find the white and deep blue theme really nice--black and silver get really boring after a while.

        Wireless to Roku on one TV and PS3 on the other, no buffering. I used to get some buffering on the PS3 with a wired connection, so this is a nice upgrade. Easy setup and security, but I'm and IT kinda guy, so easy might not describe your install and setup. I'm real happy with it, and we're off cable TV, so bills are way down.

            Had a D-Link DIR-618 N Router that was realy a mess. This one is great, but you MUST update its firmware.
            - Great coverage (about 25m with doors closed and heavy walls);
            - Great security options;
            - So easy to configure;
            - Durable materials and stylish design.

              Comments about TP-Link TL-WR1043ND Ultimate Wireless N Gigabit Router:

              Bought the TL-WR1043ND to replace another router that was not strong or stable enough for my house. I've got a 3000 sq ft house and the older router just didn't cut it - probably would work well a small apartment all on one level. The TL-WR1043ND broadcasts a strong signal to the whole house - including the basement. The configuration screens are intuitive and setting up a simple yet secure network took less than half an hour. I especially like the fact that you can add a description for wireless devices in the MAC filtering table - which helps to identify what devices are connected to the router.

                  I use this product for a home network. It was easy to set up, except for I did have some problems with the USB port. I wanted to hook up a printer to it to use as a network printer and I had trouble installing the USB printer controller software. Long story short, I uninstalled the software and then re-installed it and finally got it to work. I have only used it for 1 week and so far so good.

                          Just a little difficult to set-up initially, but once we got it running, it was great! We use it in our home-office for two computers (1 Mac and 1 PC)and is without question a lot faster than our other routers. Fast, fast, fast!!!! It is by far the best of the three routers we have owned. Finally, the days of a dropped connection are over.

                                  After two linksys routers that were horribly inconsistant with their connectivity I tried this TP-link TL routed and I am so happy I did. Easy to set up, easy to use, great range & speed. The bonus on this model is a usb port for a hard drive to essentially make it a NAS drive.

                                    I use this to provide wireless access to my house and 1 GB wired access to my video streamer and external storage. The differences are significant. I am getting 220-300Mbps on my wireless with WPA2-Personal and AES encryption and the 1 Gb access to ext. storage and streamer gretly improves my videos and backups. uploads/downloads.

                                      Gigabit ports, USB port, 100mW N-WiFi;
                                      Worked nice on stock firmware but glitches came sometimes so i had to use third part firmware based on openWRT called "gargoyle". Have been working for more than a year without problems.
                                      Strongly recommend.

                                        The mini CD set-up disk and instructions worked just fine with my WinXP PC to set up network off a DSL modem. I needed wireless so my daughter could connect her new Ipod and it still needs to run a wired network of 5 PCs and two game systems and stream video. Very pleased how it manages the heavy traffic. It works much better at allocating bandwith with each user than my old Gamer Lounge router did and each connection works faster now. At default settings, the wireless portion is strong enough to cover the house and does not extend too far beyond our yard.
