Product Description

What This Product Does

The TP-LINK Wireless N Access Point TL-WA701ND is designed to establish or expand a scalable high-speed wireless N network or to connect multiple Ethernet enabled devices such as game consoles, digital media adapters, printers, or network attached storage devices to a wireless network. It is designed using Align 1-stream technology to provide high-speed, unrivaled wireless performance for your network at 150 Mbps. The APs support a host of different functions that makes your wireless networking experience more flexible than ever before. Now, you can enjoy a better Internet experience when downloading, gaming, video streaming or with any other application that you may wish to use.

150Mbps
Router

Wireless N -- Speed and Range

Complying with the IEEE 802.11n standard, TL-WA701ND can easily establish a wireless network and get up to 9X the speed and 4X the range of conventional 11g products. With Align technology based on the IEEE 802.11n 1-stream specification shows improved performance over the existing 802.11g technology, TL-WA701ND delivers performance enhancements, allowing you to have a more joyful surfing experience, including sharing files and watching streaming media.

CCA

CCA Technology -- Stable Wireless Signals

Clear Channel Assessment (CCA) automatically avoids channel conflicts using its clear channel selection feature and fully realises the advantages of channel binding, greatly enhancing the wireless performance. Using channel detection, CCA ensures that only free channels may be bound with, in order to maintain a neighborly atmosphere. Also, this channel detection can detect in real time whether a channel becomes free at which point you can change to that channel in order to multiply your data transmission rates.

Multiple modes

Multiple Operating Modes -- Easy to Build WLAN

Supports AP Client, Bridge, Repeater and AP operation modes to enable various wireless applications to give users a more dynamic and comprehensive experience when using their AP. Multiple operating mode also helps you easily to build wireless network for hard-to-wire locations or eliminating wireless dead zone.

One Button Setup Security

QSS Button -- One Button Setup Security (WPS Compatible)

Compatible with WI-FI Protected Setup (WPS), TL-WA701ND features Quick Security Setup that allows users to almost instantly setup their security simply by pressing the "QSS" button automatically establishing a WPA2 secure connection, which is more secure compared with WEP encryptions. Not only is this faster than normal security setups but more convenient in that you don’t need to remember a password.

WPA / WPA2 Encryptions -- Advanced Security

As for the security of WI-FI connection, WEP encryption is no longer the strongest and safest guard for outside threats. TL-WA701ND provides WPA/WPA2 encryptions (both personal and enterprises) that are created by the WI-FI Alliance industry group, promoting interpretabilities and security for WLAN.

PoE equipped
More Flexible Deployment

PoE Supported - More Flexible Deployment

The TL-WA701ND is able to be powered using an Ethernet cable to simultaneously send data and electricity to wherever your AP may be located even up to 100 feet away. This feature multiplies your options allowing you to place the AP in a position that is most convenient to get the best signal possible, such as on the wall or on the ceiling of your office.

Style Name: 150M AP/Range Extender Verified Purchase
I have an Asus O!Play HD2 media player connected to a TV in a room to which I couldn't easily run a Cat5 cable. The O!Play doesn't have WiFi support built-in, so in order to be able to stream movies from my NAS, I needed a way to convert the Cat5 cable port in the device to a wireless link.

My main wireless router is a BT Home Hub running software version 4.7.5.1.83 (Type B), and what I needed was a device which could act as a network client to the Home Hub and then connect to the O!Play using a standard Cat5 cable.

After a little research, I realised that the TL-WA701ND should be able to perform this function. It has several modes of wireless operation:

Access Point - acting as a simple wireless hub to connect together multiple wireless devices.
Multi-SSID - allowing the device to advertise multiple SSIDs and create up top 4 VLANs.
Client - (the option I chose) this effectively allows it to link the local Cat5 port with a remote wireless hub or router.
Repeater - the device (with WDS enabled) will repeat all packets with an associated root wireless hub or router. This effectively extends the range of your wireless network.
Universal Repeater - the device (with WDS disabled) will again repeat all packets and grow the size of the wireless network.
Bridge - allows the device to act as a bridge with up to 4 similar devices to connect different wired LANs wirelessly.

I was amazed as how configurable it is, and how clear the built in help files are. This is not in broken Google translated English either. It's extremely well worded. The menu system is a breeze to navigate, too.

If you need to build a relatively small but very flexible WiFi network, this device is a fantastic choice.

Very good device with nice and stable WiFi that easily covers whole building. In past I had to use two APs, but now one is enough. There is also nice surprise, which Amazon fails to mention: devices is Power-over-Ethernet and comes with power injector. That makes installation possible in nearly any place and there is no need for power socket to be near. All you need to connect is one network cable and then you put power supply and injector near the switch on other side of network cable.

Style Name: 300M wireless N access point Verified Purchase
I bought this as a bit of a punt since I know nothing of the brand, but standalone 802.11n APs seem to be a dying breed unless you like spending great wodges of cash on a professional grade model.

Unlike the previous two reviewers, mine did come with a UK plug - although an adapter is peanuts if you get one with a European plug.

Pros: it seems to work well as a replacement for my previous (failed) Edimax unit. Easy to set up, stronger signal than either Edimax or Netgear units. Power over Ethernet injector, which is a real plus if you're going to locate this in an attic or similar. Multiple SSID and VLAN support.

Cons: none, really. Setup was easy, with the only fly in the ointment being the need to set a static IP address on your configuration PC because the on-board DHCP server is disabled in the AP.

I probably had it up and running within 10 minutes of taking it out of the box. I only had to look at the manual to find out its IP address.

EDIT

Okay, after 18+ months, I've been moved to update this review. It's an appallingly unreliable bit of kit, sadly, and I've never been able to find out why. It's not throughput related, since it will die by simply having a couple of mobile 'phones poll email and Facebook through it, yet survive an 8Gb copy. It will sometimes run for a month - and yet I've had to reboot it seven times today (including while posting this...), and that's after several times yesterday.

If you search on the internet at reviews like this, you'll see a very polarised world: some folks love it (like many here), some have the same stability issues as the one-star reviews here. You find folks pleading for aftermarket firmware like DD-WRT (OpenWRT is only recently supported, but it *is* now supported).

I have set this up as both a extension to my sky wireless network and as a direct connection for my Sky+ HD box so i can get Anytime+. If there is a downside it took a while to configure and it does require an element of networking knowledge. I set the unit in Universal Repeater mode. These are the settings:

Sky Router
IP address. 192.168.0.1
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Router DHCP range
Starting IP Adress: 192.168.0.10
Ending IP address: 192.168.0.254
Reserved address for TP-Link: 192.168.0.254

TP-Link
IP address: 192.168.0.254
Wireless: set to Universal Repeater
Wireless Security: set to WPA-PSK with automatic encryption (same as Sky Router)
PSK Password: Network Key of Sky Router

Style Name: 300M wireless N access point
I live in large, stone built house so wireless black-spots are to be expected. Looking for a relatively cheap solution I came across this TL-WA901ND unit. I eventually got the TL-WA901ND unit working as a remote Access Point (AP) fed from my BT HomeHub-2 router using a Cat5 cable but it took some time.

As stated elsewhere the manual is not written with the novice in mind, it's too technical, some knowledge of networks and network terminology being necessary. The simple one button automatic set-up feature Quick Secure Setup (QSS) didn't work with my BT router so manual set-up had to be used; again some knowledge of networks and use of an AP being necessary. The TL-WA901ND came with a default IP address of 192.168.1.254 which is the same as the router's default IP address. Therefore, the first thing to do is to change one units IP, as suggested in the manual I did this using a laptop connected to the AP unit by a cable. Using the set-up software (on the CD supplied with the unit) it was easy enough to change the AP's address to use a static IP - I chose 192.168.1.14. I then set the Wireless mode to AP, UK as the Region and Wireless Security as WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK. I then disconnected the AP unit from my laptop and reconnected it to the BT router whereupon the set-up software discovered the BT HomeHub-2 router.

I then relocated the AP to the area of my house suffering a wireless black-spot, reconnected it to the BT Router at which point both my remote desktop PC and laptop found my network and BT Homehub-2 router.

One inclusion I should like to see to the TL-WA901ND is that of a two port switch on the front end circuitry of the unit. I suggest this because the CAT5 cable that previously connected my remote PC to the BT router now fed the AP unit.
