TP-LINK Archer C3200 AC3200 Wireless Tri-Band Gigabit Router IEEE 802.11ac/n/a 5GHz IEEE 802.11b/g/n 2.4GHz
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Setup was a breeze. Truly idiot-proof. However, there is a lot of advanced configuration that can be done if you so choose.

I had previously been using an AC1200 router which worked reasonably well but the fastest throughput I saw was 100Mpbs (On a 350Mbps internet link) standing in the same room as the router on 5Ghz. With the C3200 I immediately jumped to over 250Mbps in the same location using the same device. Tested the internet connection on my desktop with a gig connection 10 seconds later and it was around 315Mpbs, not too shabby.

My old router did have decent coverage throughout my house but in the far corners I would struggle to get over 40Mbps. Now I get around 130Mpbs in those spots with the same client systems.

WPS button on the front.... why did anyone ever put those on the back and make them tiny?

Cons: When 2.4GHz and 5GHz network channels are set to auto it seems to pick the busiest channel to use. This may be a common flaw because The dozen or so other networks I can see via my Android wifi scanner app are all using the same channels. Anyhow, I fixed this by forcing all radios to unused channels (On auto I was getting buffering using Plex, with the channel forced all was good.)

The only other con I can think of is the price. I mean its a lot better than my old router, but that was 1/3 the price and this unit isn't 3X better, but if you can afford it you will not be disappointed.

DCS-935L HD 720P Day & Night Wide Angle Lens 11AC Wireless Cloud IP Camera
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Setup was relatively painless. QR code card included made downloading the app for my Android phone and configuring the camera a breeze. Easy WPS setup for WiFi as well.

Good night vision as well.

Can take a snapshot from the app or the web browser interface.

Can view remotely, away from home via mydlink login via the phone app or web browser.

Cons: Picture is 720P resolution but is not very clear and seems to be an upscaled image, not actual 720P. Retail price is far too high. Sale price makes it a reasonably priced item though.

Other Thoughts: The firmware update that it performed right after setup took a long, long time to complete. I had my scared that the update was going to fail and brick the item.

TP-LINK Archer T8E AC1750 Wireless Dual Band PCI Express Adapter IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a, IEEE 802.11n, IEEE 802.11g, IEEE 802.11b PCI Express Up to 1.3Gbps Wireless Data Rates
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Easy install in open PCIe 1X slot.
Immediate improvement in ping and internet speed when checking on vs. the USB 3.0 card I was using before that is rated for 300Mpbs. USB 3.0 card I never saw above 60Mpbs and 20ms ping in the test. With this card I get around 200Mpbs and 8ms ping in the same test.

My connection to the router topped out at 150Mpbs with the old card and with this card although I bounce between 1.0 and 1.3Gbps (Router is 1.3Gbps)

Cons: Throughput is nowhere near what the connection speed is listed as, e.g. link shows 1.3Gbps but throughput is actually about 200Mpbs. Not a big deal as this is purely used in my wife's system for web browsing.

Other Thoughts: Slightly disappointing that in spite of fiddling with various settings and channels the best speed I could get was 200Mpbs to my router but that may be due to being too close to the router and having signal reflection.
