The N600 Dual Band Wireless Router TL-WDR3500 broadcasts and receives both 2.4GHz and 5GHz signals simultaneously at up to 300Mbps on each band. Like two wireless routers in one, the TL-WDR3500 allows you to run simple tasks such as e-mail and web browsing over the 2.4GHz band, while using bandwidth-intensive or latency-sensitive applications, such as streaming HD video or playing online games, over the less crowded 5GHz band, simultaneously.
The router provides a USB 2.0 port that can be used to share external devices among multiple users.
1. Share a Printer. It is common that multiple users share the same printer in the network. With the TL-WDR3500, you can simply connect your printer to the USB port on the back of the router and print wirelessly.
2. Share Files & Media. Attach a storage device such as a flash drive or hard drive to the router, and users in the local network can all get access to the files saved in the drive. The router also has a built-in FTP server so that users can visit the storage device remotely.
To provide Internet access to visitors without revealing the password for your original network, you can utilize the Guest Network function of this router. You are given the options to create a Wi-Fi network on either 2.4GHz or 5GHz. What's more, you can control the bandwidth, schedule, and local network accessibility of the guest network. This feature is quite useful for small offices, shops, and other places where a separate Wi-Fi network needs to be provided to visitors.
TP-LINK's Tether App provides the easiest way to access, manage and share your router's resources with your iOS and Android devices. From setup, to parental control, to media sharing, Tether provides a simple, intuitive user interface to see what the status of your router is, who's online and what their privileges are. Learn more details on TP-LINK's website.
With Quality of Service (QoS), you can control how much bandwidth is allocated to each user. This ensures optimum utilization of bandwidth by controlling congestion and preventing bandwidth abuse. This way users of a small network receive committed and specific bandwidth, preventing non-critical applications from degrading network performance.
The TL-WDR3500 comes with a Quick Setup feature in its web management page that leads you through a step-by-step process to set up your router. Alternatively, you can use the Tether app to do the setup. Either way, you don't need to install any software or use a CD to finish the setup. Within minutes, your router will be up and running.
