TP-Link AC2600 Wireless Wi-Fi Gigabit Router with 4-Stream Technology (Archer C2600)

5 out of 5 eggs 5 eggs, but realistically is more like 4.5 03/30/2016

This review is from: TP-Link AC2600 Wireless Wi-Fi Gigabit Router with 4-Stream Technology (Archer C2600)

Pros: Well I have to say most of it is positive, really good router, with modern specs and future proof features, lets point out the positives I found for the moment and I will post an updated one with some clear numbers after my full test.
I have no complain regarding the wireless coverage and speeds, nothing spectacular, but expected and good enough. Although this router has 4 external antennas, the coverage and speeds are the same as my old router (Netgear n6250) with DD-WRT on it.
The web interface is very good and intuitive with simple and advanced options outlined, I know a lot of people complain about not having DLNA server option, but for my specific needs, that is irrelevant.
The status LEDs are not very bright and can be turned off with a button.
The two USB 3.0 ports are good and deliver an option to plug your internal HDD or SSD with all of your media and share it on your home network, if you dont want to spend a lot of money on a home server or a NAS, it can be a good option. With an external HDD attached even high bit-rate 1080p movies have no problem playing over the home network.
Not much else to say at the moment, no drops or reboots are experienced. Updated to the latest firmware right after plunging it for a first time, which is quite old BTW, I wish TP-Link are more quick to release a new version.

Cons: The only think I noticed is the significantly slower speeds over LAN, I primarily use LAN for my in house office and my media room, the speed dropped almost twice from the old router to this new one, even with 20 years of experience behind my back, I still cant figure it out, what would cause that, no cables or other configuration was changed, just the router. I will have to play around a bit more and see if I can find out what is the issue, before I go to the extreme and return the router, really want to give it a chance.

Other Thoughts: Especially for the price I think is a good router with good features and great hardware.
