TP-LINK's N600 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit ADSL2+ Router TD-W8980 is an all-in-one device combining simultaneously the crystal clear 5GHz band and the traditional 2.4GHz band. With 600Mbps of total bandwidth, simple tasks like sending e-mails can be handled by the 2.4GHz band while bandwidth intensive tasks like online gaming or HD video streaming can be processed by the 5GHz band - all at the same time.

Its all gigabit ports allow users to access high-speed internet connections and share them wirelessly at blazing 300Mbps wireless speeds or by using one of its 4 gigabit LAN ports.

With 2 multifunctional USB ports, users can share printers, files and media across the local network or the internet.

The TD-W8980 supports ADSL or Ethernet WAN connections (EWAN) that allow users to have the flexibility of different Internet connections among ADSL, cable or fiber modem using its interchangeable LAN/WAN port.
