All-in-One Device — Clear Up Your Desk

TP-LINK's N600 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit ADSL2+ Modem Router TD-W8980 is an incredibly robust all-in-one device which contains features of an ADSL2+ Modem, a N600 Dual Band Router, a 4-Port Gigabit Switch, and a USB Print Server. It saves your budget and space in contrast to buying several devices separately. The downstream bandwidth of the modem can reach up to 24 Mbps, meeting the needs for most home and office service plans.

Simultaneous Dual Band — More Bandwidth, Less Interference

Two separate wireless networks are broadcasted on 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz simultaneously with up to 300 Mbps over each band. The traditional 2.4 GHz band provides larger range and is great for basic Internet uses, while the 5 GHz band gives faster wireless speed and handles bandwidth-heavy tasks like online gaming and HD streaming. Now you can enjoy both advantages of the two bands by just having one device.


Full Gigabit Ports — More Power to You

The 4-port built-in switch of the TD-W8980 transfers data at up to 1000 Mbps, which is ideal for your wired network. You can use the Ethernet ports for printer, NAS, TV, and other network devices so that users can all share those devices through the wireless or wired connection.

Two USB Ports — Easy Sharing

  1. Share a Printer. It is common that multiple users share the same printer in the network. With the TL-WR1043ND, 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.

Two Work Modes for Flexible Uses

The TD-W8980 provides two work modes to choose from: ADSL Modem Router Mode and Wireless Router Mode. If you are using ADSL service to get Internet, select the first mode. If you are using a cable, fiber, or other types of Internet service, select the second mode and configure it as a pure wireless router. Such flexibility saves your investment and is useful when you decide to change your service provider.

Easy To Use

The TD-W8980 comes with a Quick Setup Wizard in its Web management page that leads you through a step-by-step process to set up your modem router. You don't need to install any software or use a CD to finish the setup. Within minutes, your modem router will be up and running.
