  1. Click Save.

And that’s it!

You can now enjoy your superfast Pentanet internet connection to stream, browse, and game online.

Note: The TP-Link N600 has two Wi-Fi networks which broadcast on different frequencies - 2.4GHz and 5GHz. 5GHz can reach faster speeds, but doesn’t penetrate walls well. 2.4GHz travels farther, but often won’t be as fast. We recommend using the 5GHz network when you’re nearby the unit, or the 2.4GHz if you’re in a different room or further away.
