This router is based on the Atheros AR9344 chip architecture MIPS 74Kc with a frequency of 560 MHz and a built-in controller in the 2.4 GHz according to the scheme 2 x 2. For 5 GHz band responds chip AR9580, but 3 x 3. A job Gigabit Switch provides the chip Atheros AR8327N . There is 128 MB of RAM and 8 MB for firmware storage. Stated data rate – 300 Mbit / s for the 2.4GHz and 450 Mbit / s for the 5GHz. Also available are four gigabit LAN ports and one gigabit WAN.

The router supports popular connectivity options to the network, IPoE, PPPoE, PPTP, L2TP, you can create a guest network, parental control, protection from DDoS-attacks and support of IPv4 and IPv6, and the IPV.

Performance

To test the speed of the router to use a computer with two network cards D-Link Rangebooster N650 and Qualcomm Atheros AR9485 802.11b / g / n. In the first case, the OS showed connection speed 300 Mbit / s, while the second – 150 Mbit / s.

Testing was carried out in several router modes and placement options: WAN to Wi-Fi, the router is in direct line of sight at a distance of 3 meters and the wall at a distance of 6 meters; LAN to Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi to Wi-Fi with the previous accommodation options. I should add that the router connected to the Internet for 100-megabit channel, encryption, WPA2-Personal.

In the first case, the router shows the average speed 93 Mbit / s for download and the same 89 Mbit / s at hand. When placing the router at a distance of 6 meters behind the wall, the speed remained the same.

When testing speed LAN to Wi-Fi, the router provides a stable average of 11 MB / s.

And in the case of testing Wi-Fi to Wi-Fi average transfer rate is 8 MB / s in the case of the line of sight of the router, and 7 MB / s when you install the router through the wall at a distance of 6 meters from both notebooks. Note that the possibility to test the speed performance 5 GHz in this case was not. But, in theory, given the installed hardware, you can count on a high-speed growth in the half.

Conclusion

If you’re looking for a fast and efficient router supports 5 GHz, then you came to the right address – TP-LINK N750 TL-WDR4300 what you need. Although domestic positioning, it can withstand multiple simultaneous connections and users downloading files and watch movies online. Note that, when tested, he never fell off, the device works like a clock. In addition, there are gigabit ports Etherner, thoughtful web interface, ease of setup and a couple of USB to connect the printer and external hard drives. However, for the full potential of the router, will acquire powerful wireless adapters. A conventional laptops, tablets and smartphones lack of speed will not be exact.
