With the TL-WR710N, it is possible give your office or house a wider Wi-Fi coverage.

In addition to all its separate modes, users can use its USB 2.0 port for a variety of purposes. For instance you can use it to simply recharge your smartphone or tablet; or you can share files and media within a local network amongst your different connected machines. For security purposes, the TL-WR710N also uses pre-encryption to prevent unauthorized access from outsiders.
