This router is a high speed solution that compatibles with IEEE 802.11b/g/n. Based on N technology, TL-W740N gives you 802.11n performance up to 150 Mbps at an even more affordable price, 9X the speed and 4X the range of traditional 11g products.

Using its channel selection feature, CCA technology automatically avoids channel conflicts and promotes high wireless transmission performance in long-distance and high-interference environments. Wireless Distribution System (WDS) technology provides seamless bridging to expand your wireless network.

Bordering on conventional 11N and surpassing 11G performance enabling high bandwidth-consuming application, such as video streaming, using VoIP, or online gaming, wirelessly which, with traditional g products was never very practical, from anywhere in your entire home. Enjoy N Power, G Price!

In addition to its wireless capabilities, the router has four interior interchangeable 10/100 Mbps ports, allowing you to connect up to four computers directly to the router.

Quality Service without Interruptions

Among the wireless network, indiscriminate Internet surfing and bandwidth-guzzling downloads by internal users often leave home or small office with insufficient bandwidth. This router supports the IP QoS function, allowing optimum utilization of bandwidth and offers bandwidth control over congestion, preventing the bandwidth abuse. In this way, the users of a small network receive committed and specific bandwidth, preventing non-critical applications from degrading network performance.

Instant Wireless Security Encryption with QSS

The Wireless-N Router allows you to instantly set up your network security. Just press the QSS (Quick Secure Setup) button on the router to automatically establish a secure WPA2 connection. The device also supports SPI firewalls and access control management for safer use.

Powerful Parental Controls for Safe Browsing

Integrated parental control functions allow for precise control over children's Internet activities, including restricting certain websites and limiting the amount of time spent on the Internet. The simple web-based interface makes setting schedules and adding new computers a quick and easy process.

Easy Setup Assistant

The included CD features an easy setup assistant that provides step-by-step help to complete your Internet connection, wireless network settings, and security configurations.

Product and Warranty Information

The Wireless-N Router is based on IEEE 802.11n technology and is backward-compatible with existing 11b and 11g products. The product measures 1.3 by 6.9 by 4.6 inches (H x W x D).

The Wireless-N Router is backed by a two-year warranty.

Style Name: Detachable AntennaSize Name: N150
I was looking for a basic but reliable wireless router so I could use my netbook around my condo, as well as hardwire my desktop PC and X360 to the internet. However I found that researching wireless routers is a nightmare, as for every person who lauds a particular model, there will be someone else who condemns it. This problem is especially prevalent among entry level models. Initially I was only considering LinkSys and DLink, since they are the two most famous consumer brands, but I couldn't find a basic model from either that was consistently rated well. There always seemed to be a small but significant proportion of users that would complain about dropped signals, running hot, firmware issues, etc. By chance though I saw this model reviewed on CNET [..]and immediately bought it from a local PC store. In addition to the good performance, long range, and ease of use as tested by CNET, this router was extremely affordable, which sealed the deal for me. After using this router for more than a year now, I can safely say that CNET's review is right on the money. It is a rock-solid router- I've only had 2-3 dropped signals to date. The signal easily covers every corner of my 3+1 bedroom condo, including the balcony. The unit does not run hot at all. Setting up and changing the settings on the router is indeed very easy and intuitive using the browser-based configuration. I strongly recommend that you download the latest firmware from TP-Link beforehand and update your router before actually setting up your network (it's very easy, just use the "update" option in the configuration screen and point to the downloaded firmware file). The fact that it is also one of the cheapest (but reliable) routers on the market is just icing on the cake.Read more ›

I was in search of economic router to extend the reach of my wireless network. So I bought the router TpLink wr740n version 2 (the one with the UFO shape) which conforms with this premise, however I did not expect anything special from this wireless router, if it was capable of maintaining a speed of 54Mbps I'd be satisfied.

So being a low-cost device and with the purpose of conducting a performance test, I decided to change the stock firmware with DDWRT firmware and that was an excellent decision, the device provides a super stable signal, wireless speed of 65Mbps at mixed mode BGN, it could reach the 150Mbps at N mode but I have to bear with my old wifi devices, good power (the router wr740n comes with a 5dBi antenna), the wan port (blue) is now an additional switch port, I bought it a month ago and I have not had to reboot it.

Summarizing, this router, as second AP, is just what I needed plus all the improvements and tweaks the DDWRT firmware provides, it was an Excelent purchase.

After hours and hours and hours of trying to get my LInksys E2000 to work again, I gave up and thought, what the heck, I'll spend a twenty on this cheap router. My time is worth more than the hardware, even if I throw it away. So I order it on Thursday; it arrives on Saturday (god bless Amazon), and I get around to plugging it in Sunday. Here's the timeline:

3:16pm open box
3:16pm plug in power
3:16pm pull off annoying "Please Run the CD First" sticker that is blocking the ethernet ports
3:16pm plug in ethernet cable to computer
3:16pm watch as my home page comes up on my computer

Yes, that's right: less than one minute to internet connection. So, to resume:

3:17pm type 193.168.0.1 and guess"admin" as my sign on and "admin" as my password. Correct.
3:17pm name router for broadcast
3:18pm Yes, a minute has gone by!
3:18pm click WEP preference and type in password
3:18pm reboot router (mandatory)
3:19pm OMG another minute!
3:19pm move to other computer, look for wireless network, find network as named, type password, log on successfully

I am done. Three minutes. Let me repeat: three minutes.

We'll see about the longterm performance, but you simply cannot ask for better set up than that. No more dinking around with faulty routers ever. Just buy a new TP-Link. My new motto. Well, okay, that's highly un-green and I will attempt fixes, but gosh, that was easy.

Edit: Three months later. No problems. I notice a bunch of recent bad reviews (October-December 2012). Maybe a bad lot from the factory? My unit from early September is still performing flawlessly.

I was worried when I first read the instruction because I couldn't really do what it said since I only have a laptop, so I contacted the company via e-mail and I've got the instruction right away. Victoria was very patient with me and went though with me a few times until I finally got a connection. The response was very quick and she gave me detailed instructions every time. The product itself is a great buy, too. I have no bad experience with connection nor it is anymore slower than the cable connection. I'm impressed with the customer service and the product for this price. Plus I love how it looks. I hooked it on the wall in between my desk and the wall and even I don't always see it, it's looking slim and neat instead of just hanging out with the cables. Thank you Victoria, for your wonderful service!
