5 out of 5 eggsA+++ AMAZING RECOMMENDED

Pros: Excellent range, Excellent connectivity. I've had absolutely ZERO issues with my internet since i set up this router.

Cons: It wasn't free ��

Other Thoughts: The 99$ price tag might be steep for some people, but it will be 99$ well spent. Trust me, I'm writing a review on the Internet.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Product

Pros: Excellent wireless range and wireless capability. Both 2.4 and 5 Ghz ranges were completely acceptable for the environment.

The firmware is excellent and while not 100% intuitive, if you know what you are doing, it is quite powerful.

Firmware is also open-source according to TP-Link. This is a plus in my opinion because it can be modified by a community of users rather than the manufacturer. I will be investigating this later.

Cons: My laptop doesn't have 5 Ghz.

The router does not have an "AP Mode" option to work as an access point. This is not a major con from my standpoint.

Other Thoughts: Also, a really minor con for me, is that every time you make a change in the router's firmware, it requires a reboot. This is a double-sided sword though. So it's both a pro and a con.

+ Not waiting for pages to refresh when making changes to DHCP addresses, WAN types, etc.
+ Don't interrupt any currently connected devices until you are completely ready to effect the changes.
- Unable to see if your changes improved your network (such as Wireless channel changes) until after a reboot.
- This can slow down or hamper diagnostics of a power user.

3 out of 5 eggsMine doesn't work with Xbox 360

Pros: Looks good, seems high quality, strong signal everywhere in the house, more configurable than I need, 24 hr free phone support.

Cons: Can't get it to work with Xbox 360.

Other Thoughts: I had it all set up and connected to all devices in my house. I was so happy. Then I found out that I can no longer use multiplayer or parties over Xbox Live. Xbox connects fine,j I just can't do that one thing. Worked with TP-Link support (3 calls), with Xbox support (2 chats) and Comcast (longshot hail mary). Identified all the ports needed for 360 and forwarded them, Set static IP, DMZ'd the whole thing, and some other stuff that I didn't understand, all nogo. Bypassing router fixes the issue. TP-Link support gave up and punted, disappointing.

I never imagined that I would ultimately fail in the end because it seemed to work great otherwise, so I didn't rush things. About 3 months after ordering it I (and the support folks) ran out of ideas and resigned to buy a different router. Meanwhile my window to return it for refund closed. Maybe I'll re-gift it or something.

4 out of 5 eggsEasy to install, works well with my setup

Pros: Easy to set up
Admin interface is easy to use
Plug in a USB hard drive to use as a network drive
Power button for easy power cycle
Can turn off the blinking activity lights

Cons: USB hard drive is 2.0 not 3.0
Range not as good as D-Link Wireless AC1900

Other Thoughts: The Amped Wireless AC1750 was fairly easy to set up. It comes with an installation video on a CD that you can watch, or you can just follow through with the written instructions. I came across a slight problem in that this router is set to 192.168.3.1 by default, whereas most others I've tested are 192.168.0.1. This wouldn't be an issue except for the fact that I had two devices on my network with custom IP addresses assigned (e.g. 192.168.0.143). This meant that those systems didn't work automatically like they had in the past when switching routers, but it was a simple matter of changing the device settings from "0" to "3." (Note: I could also have set the router's IP address to 192.168.0.1, but figured I'd stick to the defaults for testing purposes.)

The admin interface is easy to use, and you can adjust a fair amount of custom settings such as lowering the wireless coverage and blocking websites. Pretty standard stuff. A lot of the more advanced settings -- such as QoS Engine -- comes disabled by default, which is nice since those options can actually cause issues with certain devices (e.g. my iPad 2 hates QoS for some reason). I like that it gives basic users the minimum of what they need to get going, without forcing advanced options onto them. Yet more advanced users can still make their tweeks in the admin. Setting up forwarding was really simple too. Such as Remote Desktop and HTTP. No issues there whatsoever. Connecting to my company's VPN worked like a charm as well.

You have the ability to plug in a USB hard drive to use as a network drive, good for storing music and video files that can be accessed by other devices. You can even have the router create an FTP that writes to that drive (however, I had some issues getting the FTP working, but haven't messed around with it long enough to figure out what the issue is).

Some users complained of poor range and bad video streaming. Thankfully I didn't have a problem with either. Connected to a MOTOROLA SB6121 SURFboard Cable Modem and Comcast internet, my connection and performance is steady and consistent. I was able to have Netflix playing on an iPad and Smart TV simultaneously without a hiccup in the streaming. I also have it connected to a D-Link Wireless Day/Night Network Surveillance Camera without any issues -- it connects all the way from my basement to the outside of my garage.

I like that there is a power button on the Amped Wireless AC1750; I can perform a power cycle without having to unplug it. Another nice feature -- and the first time I've seen this on any router -- is the ability to turn off the blinking activity lights. This makes my office feel less like an alien ship is trying to land in it. If you have this router in an active place, such as a living room, you may find it nice to disable those annoying flashing lights.

I really don't have many negatives to speak of with the Amped Wireless AC1750, however I found that I like my D-Link Wireless AC1900 a bit b

4 out of 5 eggsSo far good

Pros: Speed is fast, lots of high speed LAN ports, for $100, better than most.

Cons: AC band is very short and won't let you connect if you are to far away. it's better to use it for all mobile devices.

Other Thoughts: overall, not a bad router. only bad with signal strength.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Well With OpenWrt

Pros: This is a great router. It works well with OpenWrt. Newegg is now shipping version 2 of the hardware.

Cons: None that I have found.

Other Thoughts: I have previously used the TP-Link WDR4300 as my standard wireless router in my business, but I believe I will be switching to the Archer C7. The WDR4300 only has two antennas in the 2.4 GHz range, but the Archer C7 has 3. Additionally, my testing shows that the range of the 2.4 GHz signal is about 20% better. My guess is that this is due to the design of the internal 2.4GHz antennas on the Archar C7 vs the combined external antennas on the WDR4300.

1 out of 5 eggsChronic Disconnects

Pros: When it works, this is a terrific router. Great signal strength, would have been perfect to cover our entire house.

Cons: Unfortunately, it seemed to lock up (crash) about once a day, sometimes more. When this happens, you can't even access the router via its URL. You have to physically reset it.

I contacted the manufacturer for troubleshooting. They asked a ton of questions and even asked for photos of the unit itself (!?). Then after all that, their advice was...to reset it. Seriously? What a waste of time.

They then advised me to return the unit, which I am doing. No more TP-Link for me. I think I know what the TP stands for now. I hope they don't have the nerve to reply to this review with some "Dear Customer, we would like to help you" nonsense, because the reality is their tech support is worthless.

Other Thoughts: Here's a suggestion, TP-Link: don't delete all the system logs when the router is reset! Maybe they could have been useful in troubleshooting if they weren't all wiped out each time the thing had to be rebooted.
