Product Description

N900 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router


What This Product Does

TL-WDR4900 is a performance optimized simultaneous dual band wireless N router combining the blazing fast speeds of up to 450Mbps over the crystal clear 5GHz band and the traditional 2.4GHz band. With 900Mbps of total bandwidth, CPU Clock Speeds of up to 800MHz, 3 external antennas serving the 5GHz band, and 3 internal antennas serving the 2.4GHz band, you can run multiple bandwidth intensive applications in a large home or office. Simple tasks like sending e-mails or web browsing can be handled by the 2.4GHz band while bandwidth intensive tasks like online gaming or HD video streaming can be processed by the 5GHz band?all at the same time.

If you prefer a wired connection, the TL-WDR4900 boasts five gigabit ports and 900Mbps+ hardware NAT to provide a lightning-fast and lag-free experience. The two USB 2.0 ports will allow you to power a robust home Internet network by sharing printers, flash storage, ftp servers, or media players.

900Mbps Wireless Speeds

You can run day-to-day applications like e-mailing and web browsing over the 2.4GHz band at 450Mbps, more latency sensitive tasks like online gaming or HD video streaming can be processed over the 5GHz band at 450Mbps ?all at the same time.

5 Gigabit Ports

With one gigabit WAN port and four gigabit LAN ports, speeds can be up to 10?faster than standard Ethernet connection. The TL-WDR4900 is powerful to support a robust and extremely fast wired network.

Versatile 2* USB Sharing Ports

Using the TL-WDR4300's two multi-functional USB 2.0 ports, users can share printers, files and media either throughout the network at home with several different computers or even away, using the device's ftp server functions so that you never have to part with your files.

900Mbps+ Hardware NAT Speed

With built-in Gigabit Ethernet switches and Hardware NAT function, the TL-WDR4900 is geared with powerful data processing capabilities. Its NAT WAN to LAN throughput can achieve up to 900Mbps+, which is faster than all routers' speed published in a comparison by SmallNetBuilder*.

800MHz CPU Clock Speeds

A powerful CPU is the foundation that drives this router's core performance. With CPU Clock speeds up to 800MHz, while using bandwidth intensive or latency sensitive applications, such as streaming HD video or playing online games, all while sharing files and data over its USB sharing ports.

6 Antennas

With 3 external 5dBi antennas serving the 5GHz band and 3 internal antennas serving the 2.4GHz band combined with higher quality antenna technology, you can maintain high speeds across greater distances. This provides you with incredible wireless coverage and reliability from anywhere in your large home or office.

2 Versatile USB Ports

With the two multi-functional USB 2.0 ports, you can share printers, files and media with different devices through your local network or via the ftp server while away from home.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good router, poor extras 3 April 2013
By mikeh
Verified Purchase
First, the good.

I found the signal strength better than my apple time capsule, and connection speeds are consistently faster too.

It's easy to set up, unless you have a Virgin Media "Super" hub, in which case you have to reboot the superhub a couple of times, which is a superhub fault, not the fault of this router.

It supports 2.4 and 5ghz, which is great as we have a mix of both.

The browser based administration is fast, easy to navigate, and full of options.

And here's the bad.

The media server that serves content from a connected hard drive is absolutely bare-bones. If you have a Samsung TV, you can forget watching anything from it, as the Samsung TVs are very picky about what standards media servers have to meet, and the DLNA server in this router doesn't even support video thumbnailing. Other TVs may vary, but don't buy this banking on being able to stream videos from it.

When you connect an external hard drive to it, the drive is never powered down when there's no activity. So you have constant hard drive whirring.

If you connect a drive, remove it, add some files to it from your PC, then reconnect it to the router, it is recognised as a different drive. So you have to update the shortcuts to the share on your PC. This is annoying when you have multiple PCs using the share and the router decides, "This drive is exactly the same as the one I had plugged in before, but it has different files on it! It must be a different drive, so I'm going to share it as volume2 instead of volume1 as I did earlier!"

Sometimes it doesn't keep track of if the hard drive share or ftp server is in use properly, meaning I was able to shut it down while it was in use, and sometimes unable to shut it down when it wasn't.

Bottom line: if you want a fast router with good range, this is great. If you want to share media, buy a dedicated media sharing box.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good value, great performance 21 Mar 2013
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Having used some of TP-Link's older hardware that is a bit more primitive in appearance, this model is much more sleek and sophisticated. Some might argue it's a bit on the large side, but in reality, it accommodates a full suite of 4x gigabit LAN ports and a gigabit WAN port, plus 2x USB 2.0 ports as well as the triple external antenna array and concealed triple internal array.

Typically labelled as a "Cable Router", the same rules apply in that this is simply a Router which has no in-built modem, so you are quite at liberty to use high speed non-"cable" (ie. ADSL, Fiber, Satellite etc.) broadband with this device if you choose, provided you have a separate modem for whatever your flavour of broadband and are feeding it the broadband signal via the gigabit WAN port.

The two headline specifications for this product are the 4x gigabit LAN ports combined with the high speed (450+450) dual-band wireless network. For the uninitiated, this translates to being able to move data around your network at high speed not just on hard-wired devices, but also on compatible wireless devices that can take advantage of the 5Ghz wi-fi band. As high-speed internet is becoming wider-spread, speeds of over 100Mbps would not be appreciated if you were using networking hardware that maxed out at 100Mbps (ie. non-gigabit LAN ports and non-high-speed wireless). The wireless system here supports up to 450Mbps on the 2.4Ghz band, and a second simultaneous 450Mbps on the 5Ghz band. People who store and stream High Definition movies in their homes can benefit from being able to get simultaneous distribution of content without hitting the barriers that non-high-speed networking equipment would struggle with.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wireless bliss 9 Mar 2013
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a top of the range router that will provide a superb uninterrupted signal in any home.

The installation process is quiet simple and easy with a nice set of instructions.

There are 4 GB ethernet ports and the internet connection is ultra fast ( if your provider allows it).

The unit itself is a bit large but stylish and looks good on any surface.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the money 25 Feb 2013
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is quite easy to set up, which is always a plus. Disconnect your original devices, wire this up, pop in the installation disc and you're away (if the cable modem you have from your provider is a wireless router also, it is probably wise to switch off the wireless broadcast!)

The advantage of this router is that you can broadcast over a 2.4GHz band and 5GHz at the same time. I've looked up the specs and it appears that this is handled by two separate chips, which is nice. One band can be used for things like web browsing and so forth, while the 5GHz is better for gaming and HD streaming.

There are also two USB sockets at the back, which you can use for FTP, sharing media over your network and sharing printers (though Windows does make the latter exceptionally easy anyway, so I haven't bothered altering my set up there).

It is quite expensive, but if you are in the market for a wireless router, it's worthwhile.
