3 out of 5 eggshad to rma

Pros: I got this about three months back. This thing blew away my dir-628, especially in wireless speeds. Unfortunately, it didn't last.

Cons: About a week before the third month of ownership it started dropping connection and wouldn't connect. I tried everything to get it to work, but had to rma it . The really bad part is that it was the wired connection I was having problems with, not the wireless.

Other Thoughts: I did notice others having this problem with V1. You'd think by V2 it would be fixed, nope. Shame on you TP-Link
TP-Link why not take the rma routers and figure out the problem, then make a patch. Wow, problem solved and I didn't even graduate college.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Customer,

Thank you for checking out our Router.

It is hard to determine if the issue you are seeing is due to software or some physical aspect of the connection.

If you haven't already done so then I would suggest trying a different cable to see if this could fix the problem.

When we get RMA devices we try to trouble-shoot and research the cause of the problem.

This usually leads to Upgraded Hardware and Firmware if known issues are found.

You may always check for Firmware upgrades on our website at: http://www.tp-link.us/support/download/?model=Archer+C7&version=V2#tbl_j

Feel free to contact us directly with any questions or concerns.

Support is always here 24/7.


Best Regards!

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Dual band Router

Pros: Easy set up just pop in the CD installation disc and follow the instruction, making sure all Ethernet cables attached firmly to the router, or switch if any.

Cons: for wireless 2.4GHZ devices such as: Netflix from Nintendo Wii, or Netgear Streaming devices the speed is not as fast as android phones, or Iphone 5, 5S, any ipads which can use 5.0GHZ then the speed is super fast. So if you are using HD streaming for Netflix connecting to any LCD flat screen tvs, you must use the Ethernet cable hook up from your streaming device back to your TP link AC1750 router or external Ethernet Port Switch to achieve excellent speed without interruption or rebuffing.

Other Thoughts: Overall excellent unit, fair price cheaper than any highend device which is about the same performance.

5 out of 5 eggsTP-LINK Archer C7 v2 AC1750 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router

Pros: Fast, good signal strength/range

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: I have been testing this router out and so far I am very pleased with it. I connect at 866Mbps link speed on my Galaxy s5 at 5GHz. On speed test net, I am getting 95/38 download/upload . I now get a strong 5GHz signal on my Ipad Air downstairs where previously I could not use 5GHz there. So far, all connections have been rock solid.

5 out of 5 eggsWent to 5ghz and Happy

Pros: I average 325.0Mbps connection using TP-LINK Archer C7 v2 AC1750 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router and Rosewill AC1200UBE Wireless AC1200 Dual-Band Adapter connected to ATT 6MBps connection using 5ghz band / 300Mbps using 2,4ghz band going 50 feet thru 3 walls never a dropped connection use insidder,com free download for sellecting best channel, data collisions on overlapping channels reduce speeds and cause dropped connections. Max speed connection is 450Mbps I have this router pluged into back of att router 1Gbps connection, not WAN, you can use WAN with time warner cable and avoid monthly rental charge of their router.

Cons: NON

5 out of 5 eggsV2 is MUCH better and tplink cust support was awesome

Pros: just works.

great range especially on the 2.4 band, 5 is to be expected not at all bad not at all spectacular but overall very good for what i expect from 5g.

does not seem to be at all affected by many multiple downloads at all. also having many devices (mix of everything laptops, desktops, phones, tabs, cable boxes etc etc). also works great serving dns to a actiontech from verizon setup lan to lan strictly as a moca bridge and i have no issues with on demand, guides or updates so far.

has not rebooted yet unless i wanted it to.

imo this is hands down THE best router for the money. note i did say for the money. when you get this on sale for even less its just a awesome sub 100$ router. i also own other high dollar routers (nighthawk, asus etc etc) and yes this falls below them some but its half or less than half the cost in some cases.

Cons: it lacks usb 3.0, could use some different color leds for the average person who looks at it and maybe get confused (has happened to a couple clients of mine). wish it had the 6 antenna setup the china version had. and maybe the stock firmware is ehh and could use a few more features, and i prefer a stand up stye housing. otherwise not much and for the price im nitpicking.

Other Thoughts: i previously had the v1.1 and had so many issues i also work with ddwrt and openwrt and v1.1 could not be used properly with openwrt and not at all with ddwrt. I also had many drop out issues where i would have to reboot under heavy traffic / to many devices. i bought one from newegg being sold as v2.0 but got a v1.1. I wrote a review about it at the time which was FAR from positive. i was contacted by tplink apologizing asking what my issues were. I then told them i expected to get a v2.0 since openwrt was working properly (well for the most part) with v2.0 and within a few days i had a rma email and was asked to ship them the v1.1 and within maybe just over a week i got a brand new sealed v2.0 back in the mail.

since then i have had nearly zero issues and i even bought 2 more. one for pure openwrt and ddwrt experimenting and one for my office.

1 out of 5 eggsshould be sold for less than it is.

Pros: price, look, and newegg speedy shipping parental controls are very easy for people or parents that want the easiest parental controls ever. It is by range of IP address not by Mac address like some routers.
That is the reason i gave one egg.

Cons: wireless n speed is very sketchy fastest n speed i got was 144 mbps and that was across the street on the corner of my home this was in 2.4 ghz mode. would not stream movies when my lg smart google tv was connected to the 5 ghz . had to put it on the 2.4 ghz band to get the tv not to skip. maybe i just got a bad one i purchased this because of the great reviews lack of QoS really hurts

Other Thoughts: I think i will stick with netgear or take what i know from talking with the Buffalo Airstation is the best bet.

1 out of 5 eggsgood for suckers

Pros: cheap 802.11ac router

Cons: too much.
Basically , this doesn't can't work well with devices using broadcom's chipset at 5ghz , no matter it's ac or n. Like my cellphone , my macbookpro , my tablet dell latitude 10. Not just slow , but also unstable.
My router is V2 , and Already using newest firmware.
Paying 100 bucks for a router can't work well with all my devices? sounds like I am a sucker.

Other Thoughts: yeah , it's a good router for suckers.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great

Pros: This thing rocks. It has not dropped a signal once. I have between 20-25 devices connected at any given time (tablets, cellphones, printers, TV's, Roku boxes, etc.). Very good signal strength where other routers have failed.

Cons: Would have preferred it stand up instead of laying down.

5 out of 5 eggsMuch greater than at first glance

Pros: This is an update to my previous review, "OK router but I prefer the TL-WDR4300"

I decided to re-test the Archer C7 v2 with different hardware (a Cisco AE2500 dual-band N USB adapter), and have seen the light.

Absolutely killer performance. Period, end of story.

I tested 3 routers - the Archer C7, the TP-LINK N750, and a Buffalo WZR-1750DHPD. The Archer C7 came out tops on 15 of 22 tests/specifications in my comparisons. Rating accordingly and giving 2 points for 1st place, 1 point for 2nd place, and 0 points for last place, the Archer C7 achieved 35 out of 44 points and was 1st place in:
10' away
2.4GHz - Average Signal % (90%)
2.4GHz - RSSI (-44)
2.4GHz - Max Speed (450Mbps)
2.4GHz LAN Speed Test Lite 1000MB file upload (74.70Mbps)
2.4GHz LAN Speed Test Lite 1000MB file download (81.44Mbps)
5GHz - Average Signal % (99%)
5GHz - RSSI (-33)
5GHz - Max Speed (450Mbps)
5GHz LAN Speed Test Lite 1000MB file upload (133.32Mbps)
5GHz LAN Speed Test Lite 1000MB file download (138.91Mbps)

25' away
5GHz - Average Signal % (87%)
5GHz - RSSI (-50)
5GHz - Max Speed (450Mbps)
5GHz LAN Speed Test Lite 1000MB file download (126.62Mbps)

Other results:
Gigabit using Cat5e
751.47Mbps upload (last place, oddly enough - the N750 beat it with 768.55Mbps upload)
499.05Mbps download (2nd place - again, beaten by the N750 with 511.07Mbps download)

Even when it "lost" in my testing, it didn't lose by much.

The firmware on this device is solid. Tons of features, easy to understand menus, lots of bells and whistles.

Build quality is very good. It's plasticky, but it's not cheap feeling - it feels like 'quality'.

Cons: From a networking standpoint, the only thing it doesn't do that I wish was there was VLAN'ing. Most consumer-level routers and switches (unmanaged of course) don't offer VLAN capabilities though, so I'm not going to deduct an Egg for this.

Other Thoughts: The Archer C7 is now "my router". I've put up the N750 and couldn't be happier. The C7 is like an N750 with a Hemi; just a phenomenal router. I cannot recommend this product enough. And it's priced incredibly low as well!
