Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

In this description page, it says that:

The TL-WR740N is a combined wired/wireless network connection device integrated with internet-sharing router and 4-port switch.

So, it's a router for wireless, and with 4 ports switch? Can a single device be both like this?

The faq says I can ask about "Networks" and "Desktop PCs that you maintain in the workplace". So why this was close as off topic? –  Tom Brito Jan 26 '11 at 17:47

A device like this is not commonly used in professional business networks. It is very common in SOHO gear. Almost any two pieces of network gear to be combined into a single package, and is very common in various situations. –  Chris S Jan 26 '11 at 18:05

It's quite common to find a router with a switch-module (plus a bridge to wlan) in a single device.
