The TP-Link TL-WR841N Wireless N Router is available at the price of just 17 dollars. Well, this makes it one of the cheapest Wi-Fi routers on the market.
However, TP-Link TL-WR841N is also one of most attractive Wi-Fi routers out there, especially for customers who are living in a small house or an apartment and they don’t need a larger broadband connection. However, at this price users should not have large expectations, because TP-Link TL-WR841N has some limitations and caveats.
For starters, customers should know that this Wi-Fi router could not be compared with other devices on the market, especially with those recently released dual-band routers. However, TP-Link TL-WR841N is perfect for a second router or in a small apartment.
The cost of this router is equivalent to a few bottles of juice or a few cups of coffee, meaning that customers will not spend a fortune for it. However, during testing this router behaved quite well, with excellent Wi-Fi signal stability and a good data rate. Without a doubt, at this price, users should not expect many features or top speeds. If they are looking for something stronger, they should probably go for something more expensive and with high features.
TP-Link TL-WR841N Wireless N Router measures 5.1×220.127.116.11 inches and weighs 8.1 ounces. As for design, it looks like a typical Wi-Fi router, with two detachable antennas on the back and a flat body. On top, there are located an array of little LED lights that indicate the router’s status. Moreover, the router is also designed to be mount on a wall, which is a good thing.
On the back, there are four LAN and one WAN ports to be connected to an Internet source. In this context, it is worth mentioning that the device’s network ports come with support for the Fast Ethernet standard, having a top speed of around 100Mbps.
For wireless clients, this Wi-Fi router supports the single band 802.11n Wi-Fi standard with the dual-stream setup. To be added that on paper, TP-Link TL-WR841N has a top Wi-Fi speed of 300Mbps. Unfortunately, this Wi-Fi router doesn’t have a USB port.
