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!

1 out of 5 eggsDisappointed

Pros: None

Cons: Misleading product description in the title!

Other Thoughts: Received V1.1 instead of V2. Can't use that with OpenWRT. Asked for replacement with correct V2, been told can not guarantee shipment of correct V2??? I really have high hope with this product, will gladly change to 5 stars if I can get hold of one with this price and promote.

4 out of 5 eggsBasic Router for Basic Price

Pros: First impressions are it looks pretty cool and it’s an AC router which is supposed to be faster. It is unfortunate that I do not have any AC clients at this time to test it out though I am building up a mother board with a built in AC client so it’s becoming the new standard rather than another never really widely adopted improvement. My disclaimer is that the review is only based on what I could checkout, so if the 802.11ac is good or bad doesn’t affect this review.

My point of comparison is a Netgear N600 router, which was a fairly full functioned router at the time of purchase. From looking at a point to point comparison the AC1750 seems to be fairly basic. The features it does have are really useful so that it has NAS and a DLNA server. I personally keep a bunch of video lessons and my kids cartoons on it so it’s a nice feature to have. Also included are GBit LAN which I do use with A smart DVD player.

The good is that the interface is okay and understandable, though some have complained it’s not “graphical” my feeling is that I would rather have the developers put the time into making sure the router is speedy and solid – as long as I can read and figure it out I don’t care as it’s generally a rarely used item once it’s set up. As far as 802.11g which is what the majority of devices I have including tablets, DVD players and PCs are seem to be really solid. I know my Nexus 10 sometimes drops out in my bedroom on the second floor, and as the router is in the basement it all connected up and ran without a hitch.

Cons: As my printer is wireless I haven’t tested out the print server, I can’t imagine who would use the Bandwith Control but I’m sure there is some control freak would appreciate it. As far as an FTP server goes, Dropbox and other similar services which non-technical people can use are making FTP severs go the way of the modem. I spent about 10 emails and 5 hours trying to explain to my cousin how to upload something off an old one I had, he could never figure it out so I would never use one again unless it was me using it exclusively on both ends.

Other Thoughts: To sum this whole thing up, the Archer C7 is a really basic and inexpensive router with 802.11ac which I have yet to try – but as far as all the basic services, it seems to work as advertised. This is a decent router to install in a place where you don’t really have any special needs aside from a basic NAT firewall wireless router. It does have a few bells and whistles and of those tested I have no complaints – but most are features found on just about all routers. The good news is you get what you pay for – and as it’s basic, the going price also reflects this. It’s the type of router I would install in my elderly mom’s house so she can send email and watch Netflix – and would fill the bill well.
