The TL-WR941ND is along similar lines to most modern routers. You have lights in the front to indicate power, data transmission, what ports are connected etc. - As with many other companies, TP-Link has chosen a very stark white for the colour.
This, while not to my tastes (I personally do not like stark white equipment), still gives it an attractive look.
Taking a closer look at the front panel, we see a number of LEDs and these are labelled to indicate their function. One of particular interest is the QSS light. This is the Quick Secure Setup light and will flash green when you are connecting a device using QSS, flash red when a device fails to connect and stay on (green) when it is working properly.
Flipping the TL-WR941ND around, we see the RJ-45 ports and the sockets for the three antennas.
The TL-WR941ND has one 10/100 RJ-45 port for WAN (Wide Area Network) and four 10/100 ports for your LAN (local area network). The lack of Gigabit ports is a negative, especially when the majority of products are now offering Gigabit LAN.
The three antennas located on the back are removable and can be swivelled around for best reception and to fit the area the TL-WR941ND is located. The bottom of the TL-WR941ND has much of the default information including IP address and default username and password. This is handy to have if you need to reset the TL-WR841ND for any reason.
The TL-WR941ND supports the latest N Specification 2.0 draft as well as B and G. Wireless encryption types are WEP, WPA /WPA-2 PSK and PA /WPA-2 Radius. Both TKIP and AES are supported under WPA /WPA-2.
There is also support for Virtual Server port forwarding, DMZ setup and special hosts, auto and scheduled internet connection, UPnP, Dynamic DNS, static routing, DHCP and NAT. Furthermore, there's a built-in firewall with IP as well as Mac and Domain filtering to add to the feature set.
