Starting setup of this router, we use the wizard and create a password for the router.

The second step allows you to setup all three SSIDS and passwords.

HomeCare is the main focus of this new platform from TP-Link. This technology leverages TrendMicro Antivirus along with a higher level QoS and Parental Controls.

To setup these parental controls, you first choose a device.

You then choose if you want your applied device profile to have a time limit on the internet and what days of the week.

The new QoS system allows you to choose between application priority, where the router detects what a device is doing and prioritizes based on that, or you can choose device priority and setup your devices by importance.
