The TP-Link TL-WR642G is a mid-cost 108Mbps wireless router. This router integrates a firewall, NAT-router and Wireless AP, and is dedicated to Small Office/Home Office (SOHO) Wireless networks. The 108M Super G WLAN Transmission technology brings the data rate up to 108Mbps, and the 2x to 3x eXtended Range technology brings your transmission distance up to 2 to 3 times that of traditional 11g/b (up to 855.36 meters). The remote management and log feature allows the network administrator to monitor and manage network use in real time. To avoid unwanted users accessing your network, you can turn off the network name (SSID) broadcast, so that only users who have the name can use your network. This router is a step up from the lower cost TL-WR641G in that it can connect or disconnect the internet on a specified time of day, has access/parental control, and provides 802.1x authentication for WAN port. The TP-Link TL-WR642G comes with an Easy Setup CD.
