The N900 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router (TL-WDR4900)

TP Link N900 box

The N900 from TP-LINK is supplied in a sturdy cardboard box which features the green branding that we find on all TP-LINK products. The front of the package features a large picture of the router along with a note of three of the key features of this product, the dual band 450Mbps capability, gigabit Ethernet ports and dual USB ports. Turning to the reverse of the box we find a more detailed list of the features of the N900 along with a comparison table of how the N900 stacks up against the other products in the TP-LINK range.

Provided along with the router are three external antennas to provide maximum range support for the wireless capability of the N900. TP-LINK also include a Cat 5 cable and a mains power supply/plug.

TP Link N900 manuals

Along with the standard quick installation guide and warranty documentation TP-LINK provide a mini CD that contains a software quick start application as well as a copy of the full user manual in PDF form. The mini CD is an unusual choice, mostly these days we either see a full CD or more commonly now a note to download the software from the company’s web site.

Taking the N900 out of the box we find a substantial router measuring in at 9.6in x 6.4in x 1.3in (243mm x 160.6mm x 32.5mm). The N900 is designed to lie flat on our desktop, unlike other routers that can be stood on their end to save on desk space. It has a distinctive grooved design, with the TP-LINK name shown on the top of the router. The front of the router also displays the LED icons which indicate how the device running. Turning to the back of the router we find the three connections for our 5dBi external antennas, which support the 5GHz band.

Looking at the back of the router in more detail we find the four 10/100/1000Mbps LAN ports that we can use to connect our devices to the router. We also have a 10/100/1000Mbps WAN port and dual USB ports. There is also a switch to turn off the wireless capability of the router, and an on/off power switch. Finally we have the plug for the 12VDC / 2.5A external power supply.

The three external antennas are detachable and are easily screwed into place during initial installation. The external antennas support the 5GHz band, the 2.4GHz antennas are internal to the N900. Both bands support up to 450Mbps in transfer speeds, making the N900 a top of the range router. Both bands also support the full range of wireless standards, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n.
