TP-Link TL-WN823N, 300Mbps Mini-Wireless N USB Adapter

TP-Link has chosen to advertise its newest product, N300 TL-WN823N, as a direct competitor to an item from Netgear, one that is more expensive while not noticeably superior to it.

The device that TP-Link aims to steal customers from is the Netgear N300 WNA3100M, priced at $36.99 / 29-36.99 Euro. Basically, both Netgear's small stick and TP-Link's 300Mbps Mini-Wireless N USB Adapter establish a strong wireless connection when plugged inside a USB port. "Our customers tell us they need a portable wireless adapter that has the power to provide fast connection speeds to their laptop, smart phone and tablet at times when only one wired connection is available," says Lewis Wu, director of sales at TP-LINK USA. "This adapter solves the single Internet connection challenge while still being easy to carry." Normally, wireless connections are provided by a router. We know of many such routers, some quite powerful and capable of broadcasting over a wide range.

Alas, there are many areas where the signal is low, and using wired LAN is just so much easier. Unfortunately, wired connections are few, and not something that phones and tablets can take advantage of, due to the absence of compatible ports. That is where the TP-Link N300 TL-WN823N comes in. Once connected, it automatically turns the LAN of a PC into an 802.11 b/g/n network. All this for the price of $21.99 / 17-21.99 Euro. The SoftAP Mode of operation is the one responsible for this seamless transition between LAN and Wi-Fi, but it isn't the only asset of the new gadget. A second element deserves mention as well: One Button Security Setup, which establishes a secure connection at a single press of the WPS button (Wi-Fi protected Setup).
