TP-LINK TL-WR802N Nano Router Review 17

Introduction

With technology getting smaller and smaller, I was waiting for a time when bulky wireless extenders found their place in the skip yard and not in our homes. Now this product is what I would consider a stepping stone in the right way to bridge portability and wireless connectivity, and let’s face it we live in the wireless age. This product was designed to be sleek, small, and highly portable. It  runs on a minimal power source making it also incredibly energy efficient, something I consider very important with a product that could, in theory, be used around the clock. This review is going to be quite long, so let’s have a read of what TP-LINK have to say about the WR802N.
