1 out of 5 eggsQuality Problems ?

Pros: This router has great features: AC1750 and Gigabit switch. Setup was doable, just had to set the IP address correctly.

Cons: this is my second attempt to getting it to work (rma-ed the first, newegg sent replacement). Setup was somewhat hard since the router insisted on 192.168.0.1 as IP address, so the only way to get started is on a separate network. Did an immediate update to the latest firmware. At first it seemed that it was working intermittently (?!) Traced it down to the fact that its gigabit ports could not hold a connection to other gigabit ports. Tried with different switches (one a TP-Link). Router only worked reliably when connected to a 100mbit switch.

Other Thoughts: I was wondering why the purchase came with a $40-off coupon, guess they want to clear inventory.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks great- when it works

Pros: Setup was easy, took me five minutes. wi-fi is fast and clear, 5ghz gets me 450mbps and it almost never goes below that, despite my desktop being upstairs and the router downstairs

Cons: randomly drops connection every few hours. All it takes to fix is to disconnect and reconnect to the signal but it is annoying and makes online gaming a hassle at times.

Other Thoughts: This seems to be a common issue with this model. I think i'll return this for a ASUS ASUS RT-N66U, unless i can find a fix.

2 out of 5 eggspoor performance

Pros: lower price comparing other AC routers
decent WAN speed

Cons: poor LAN performance, has only about 1/3 to half read/write speed comparing my 2years old linksys E4200v2 N router

Other Thoughts: if you want some router can handle high speed read/write in your LAN, like from you pc to your NAS, buy something else.

1 out of 5 eggsUnreliable

Pros: Router was a great deal with the promo, 2 USB ports, easy UI.

Cons: Router was fast initially but then started but then started randomly dropping signal. Other times when close by, the router would read 4/5 bars when i was literally 10 feet away with no barrier in between using my Note 4 phone. Have since RMA'd the device and will go with a more reliable brand. Didn't want to bother with warranty since i was still under the return period and if it didn't work right the first time, i'm worried it may happen again.

Other Thoughts: I'm experienced in configuring routers. I also hold an IT position.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat router.

Pros: Router is as promised and more.

it runs great, has great signal and good throughput.

A big improvement over my old Netgear WNDR4000.

Has open source drivers available for the atheros radios (ath9k and ath10k) unlike other routers.

Works flawlessly with OpenWrt open source firmware.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I bought this router because I needed a high performance router that worked well with OpenWrt and had open source drivers. I was not disappointed. The Atheros radios work amazingly well with the open source drivers and I couldn't be happier.

4 out of 5 eggsNew User - but so far, so great

Pros: Much better in speed and range than my last 2 routers

Cons: Short time of experience

Other Thoughts: I've only had this for a day, so my review may change as time goes on. Also, altho I'm pretty tech savvy, networks are something I just haven't bothered with much - usually used wired connections, but now with a wifi cell phone, kindle HDX fire, and a gaming extender, that will change. I'm fairly tech savvy, but not to the degree that the tech geeks here are.
That said, in the day I've used it it has (so far) lived up to basic expectations: Both the 2.4 and 5ghz bands are higher than previously routers (ancient but reliable Netgear 300 range max, Trendnet N600 dual-band (avoid that one if you can), which is what was advertised and what it has delivered. It doesn't quite live up to the speed claims of 1.3 mbps (IIRC) and (is it 450?mbpz), even when I'm sitting next to the router, but speeds are liveable. (For instance, my cell phone on the 5ghz band , within 5 feet of the router right now, is showing 433 mbps - not what was advertised, but more than good enough bandwidth for streaming.)

Set-up could've been simpler - when I wanted to change some of the parameters, it didn't work out so well, but I'm not a big fan of reading owner's manuals, so I probably need to go back and do that, to work out the kinks. Wired speeds are just what you want - 1.0gbps going through a gigabit switch - probably the same as any other gigabit router, but it's nice to see this works, no problem.
May come back with more comments as I get more experience - of course, that's often when the problems appear.

4 out of 5 eggsNot so good

Pros: I updated it to the newest firmware. It works great at 2.4 G. 2.4 G wifi signal is solid. I get 34-45 MB per second. My Comcast internet is 120 MB download speed.

Cons: It has a very bad 5 G wifi signal. If I stay very close to the router, my Macbook pro gets 70-110 mb download speed. If I stay 20 foot away, my Macbook still gets ~ 45 MB. If I stay 33 foot, my Macbook gets ~ 8 MB. The 5 G wifi signal is not stable.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Nice looking with three external antennas. I paid a Great Price $60. Has an on off switch for WiFi and Power. When contacting tech support via email they have responded in a reasonable time frame to the point.

Cons: C7 Version 2 has 3 internal antennas for 2.4 Ghz and the signal isn't powerful. My phones only work on 2.4 GHz so it is useless for me.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Awesome router. Easy to set up no problems with it after a year of use.

Cons: I can't think of any

Other Thoughts: It has worked great for me after a year of use. Never had a problem with it. Go ahead and buy it

1 out of 5 eggsEasy Setup, Horrible Router

Pros: Easy firmware updates, extensive GUI

Cons: Everything, I lose wifi connectivity on average 5-8 times per day, I have to reset the router 3-4 times per day at least because my SSIDs disappear from the available connections on all my network devices. I tried using only 2.4Ghz or 5Ghz at one time as some other reviewers had stated (which also defeats the purpose of paying the purchase price of this router) and still saw no improvement. I've updated the firmware on this router every time they've had a new release hoping that it would resolve an issue, but it never has. I've contacted support 3 times and got no response. This is worse than even the cheapest netgear routers I've used in the past. I was skeptical about TP Link products and unfortunately my gut instinct seemed to be correct. Now I'm stuck with $100 loss and no router. I never write product reviews, but my terrible experience motivated me to warn others against buying this thing. Also, I read the manual from cover to cover and did not find a mention of there being a 2TB limit on USB HDDs plugged into this router, wasn't told that until I contact support.

Other Thoughts: V2 Archer C7 AC1750
I'm a technical support engineer, lots of technical/hardware/troubleshooting knowledge, this is just faulty hardware/firmware

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Customer,

Thank you for your review.

We are sorry to see that this product didn't work out for you.

If you haven't already I would suggest flashing the Router with the latest firmware from our website at: http://www.tp-link.us/support/download/?model=Archer+C7&version=V2#tbl_j

This Firmware was published last month.

Some Wireless settings that I suggest is to set the Wireless channel width to 20 MHz and the Wireless channel to number 6.

This can help with the wireless stability and speed.

We also provide a Manufacture warranty and can replace this Router with a new one if you feel that the device has some hardware issues.

Please feel free to contact me directly at howard.he@tp-link.com for any issues or concerns.


Best Regards!
