CITY OF COMMERCE, Calif., Jan. 5, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- TP-LINK, a global provider of networking products, today announced its new 450Mbps Simultaneous Dual Band Wireless Gigabit Router, allowing you to achieve a reliable and high quality wireless multimedia experience online. With speeds of up to 450Mbps and simultaneous dual-band capabilities, you can now play music, games and HD videos as well as share photos from anywhere in your home or office without worrying about drops in wireless connection.
450Mbps Simultaneous Dual Band Wireless Gigabit Router (TL-WR2843ND) – $129.99 – available May 2011
Simultaneous dual band is the best weapon to avoiding interference on your wireless network. Because so many devices in the home—such as cordless phones, Bluetooth devices, and don't forget your neighbors' wireless routers—operate on the 2.4GHz band, the likelihood of your Wi-Fi network slowing down is high. However, with the additional 5GHz band on the 450Mbps Dual Band Wireless Router, you gain access to an entire band of free channels to transmit data. For example, you can use the 2.4GHz band to browse the Web while at the same time use the 5GHz band to stream HD videos.
The TP-LINK 450Mbps Dual Band Wireless Router offers a USB Share Port to attach an external hard drive or other USB storage device for sharing and backing up files. Adding a new device to your network is simple with its Wi-Fi Protected Setup Button. Just press a button and your wireless device will automatically receive your network security information and securely configure itself.
The 450Mbps Simultaneous Dual Band Wireless Gigabit Router is on display at:
- 2011 International CES, January 6–9, 2011, in Las Vegas at Booth #31569 South Hall

"With more and more people using media-intensive applications online, it becomes even more critical to ensure a reliable wireless experience," said Richard Xu, General Manager of TP-LINK USA. "Streaming HD content, gaming online, and even sharing photos require the best possible wireless connection. People want to get online and stay on. Our 450Mbps Simultaneous Dual Band Wireless Gigabit Router stays true to this promise."
