For $17 on the open market, the TP-Link TL-WR841N Wireless N Router is one of the most affordable — if not the most affordable — Wi-Fi routers available on the market today. However, this does not imply that you should purchase one immediately.
Although there are certain restrictions and limits, there is still value in this bargain basement router if you are willing to put up with them. It is particularly well-suited for those who live in small studio apartments and have just a modest broadband connection — one that provides a download speed of 30Mbps or less — and only wish to share the Internet with a few Wi-Fi devices.
Always remember that the router cannot compete with the most, if not all, of the newly launched dual-band routers on the market today. However, considering that it will only cost you the equivalent of a few cups of coffee, there is little danger in spending your money on it. And in testing, it performs admirably for a single-band Wireless N router that is many years old, providing fast data speeds and great Wi-Fi signal stability. The range, on the other hand, is limited.
Obviously, at this price, you should not anticipate lightning-fast speeds or a plethora of features. If you’re prepared to spend a little extra money to have a Gigabit Ethernet home network that also supports the most up-to-date Wi-Fi standards, consider purchasing one of the best 802.11ac routers available on the market.
In either a little workplace or a large residence, the TP-Link TL-WR841N Wireless N Router has a fantastic capacity to transfer data over long distances as well as across a variety of modest barriers. That this wireless router is capable of transmitting data across steel and concrete structures is the most remarkable feature.
When you need to establish a long-distance connection, you may easily do it by connecting to the wireless network. Most 11g routers are unable of transmitting data over a long distance connection through a wireless network, which is a common problem. In other words, the router has the ability to function more effectively and quickly because of its increased speed. The router is also capable of dealing with any sort of demanding application, such as HD streaming, online gaming, and VoIP calls.
