Now over to TP-Link. TP-Link enables the user to connect the residential or office network (LAN) with the internet (WAN). To make this clear, not minding the type of the router model; either wired or wireless or both kinds of devices are supported on the LAN side, thereby allowing the networking devices to be connected to the router through a wired network or a wireless network.
