What does this router provide?
The TP-Link TD-WD9980 provides versatile connectivity as well as maximum wireless coverage and stability around your home. As a complete integrated modem router, the TD-WD9980 provides versatile connectivity options including VDSL/ADSL, fibre/cable and 3G/4G USB dongle connections. This makes it easier to choose between different internet service providers when necessary. The 1GHz dual-core CPU can handle the demand made on the TD-WD9980's network when multiple users are browsing, streaming and gaming at the same time. External hard drives can connect directly to the modem router via its USB 3.0 and 2.0 ports, making it easy to share files, photos, music and video across your network. The TD-WD9980 is also equipped with four Gigabit Ethernet ports that enable wired speed 10 times greater than Fast Ethernet, helping connected game consoles, PCs and smart TVs achieve their best performance.

What can I expect from this wireless connection of this router?
TD-W9980 uses dual-band technology to run two separate Wi-Fi channels at once, creating a network that can connect to more devices without a trade-off in performance. This makes it ideal for low latency online gaming, smooth 4K streaming and extremely fast file-sharing. The TD-W9980 offers a 5GHz band with data rates of up to 300Mbps and a 2.4GHz band with rates up to 300Mbps. With three external 5dBi antennas serving the 5GHz band and three internal antennas serving the 2.4GHz band, combined with higher quality antenna technology, you can maintain high speeds across greater distances. This provides you with incredible wireless coverage and reliability from anywhere in your large home or office.

What wired connections are available on this router?
With four Gigabit LAN ports, you can connect up to four Ethernet-compatible devices simultaneously. Non-Wi-Fi devices like smart TVs, game consoles, set-top boxes, media players, NAS storage devices and more can now have their own exclusive dedicated ports. This helps make your TD-W9980 your digital home hub. These ports can be used to provide a stable transfer of data between devices that require high network usage, or to attach devices that do not have the ability to connect to your wireless network.

You can use the two USB 2.0 to connect USB-enabled device, such as external storage drives, printers and 3G/4G dongles, to your TP-Link router and share them with other users via Wi-Fi – thereby creating a media server.

What network management can I use with this router?
This router comes with features to help you control and manage your network. Parental Controls allows parents or administrators to establish restricted access policies for children or staff. IP based bandwidth control allows administrators to determine how much bandwidth is allotted to each PC. The Wi-Fi On/Off switch lets you simply turn the wireless radio on or off. You can easily set an encrypted security connection up at a push of WPS button.
