Network

Mobile networks are not supported.

The router has built-in VPN support. VPN support allows you to pass all of your internet traffic through a VPN service. Depending on the service, this could hide your location, encrypt your data, and better protect your devices against security threats.

The wifi coverage is best for Whole home. Make sure this covers what you need so that you know the router will cover your whole area.

The coverage is supported by 3 x 5 dBi fixed antennas. Whilst antennas may assist in range, additional antennas tend to help more with ensuring devices can simultaneously connect to the router. They can help avoid interference, along with helping increase signal strength to devices within the usable range.

The Wifi standards offered are IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n/ac and they're offering connection speeds of 600 + 1300 Mbps.

Security protocols offered by the TP-Link Archer A8 are WEP WPA WPA2 WPS.

The parental controls allow you to control what your kids can access, along with when they can access it. Restrict certain websites, and limit the times they can access the internet. You can even pause the Wifi as needed!
