TP-LINK Archer C7 Wireless AC1750 Dual Band Gigabit Router, 450 Mbps on 2.4 GHz + 1300 Mbps on 5 GHz, 2 USB Ports, IPv6, Guest Network
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: its AC
Has not died
Excellent 2.4 range in 40mhz mode ONLY
INTEL wireless when you get the CORRECT drivers installed 5Ghz stays connected unlike android and broadcom

Cons: 1. POOR POOR firmware
2. updated firmwares breaks more things
3. IPV6 does not grab DNS servers from isp, all other routers tested do. Must Tinker with IPV6 settings every time router is rebooted to grab/bind ipv6 addy and dns
4. ALL android devices i own on 5Ghz range WILL eventually lose connectivity to the router, android 4.4.2-5.01
5. Broadcom wireless laptop 5Ghz will also not maintain consistent connection.
6 Latest "3.14.1 Build 141110" firmware when rebooting router the dhcp will grab ipv4 address however router stays STUCK in "FETCHING/RENEWING" mode causing all sorts of issues with network
7. router must be rebooted roughly once a week as it seems to simply get crippled, then must tinker with ipv6, then fix the fetching/renewing dhcp on wan
8. PARENTAL control needs improvement

Other Thoughts: TP-Link needs to address known current issues instead of ignoring them and releasing more broken firmwares.

Also need to REVAMP parental controls.

you guys looking for a router with parental control i advise against this router.

I also do a ton of media streaming over my network on AVG 2Tb+ monthly, i have learned big box routers will simply die as it simply not made to transmit this kind of data consistently :(

Avg 2.4 range in 20mhz mode, mediocre 5Ghz range

overall for price and coverage range router is ok only,

however due to horrible firmware update times, and what actually gets fixed and moreover what gets broken i will not be buying another TP-Link router nor would i recommend it

TP-LINK Archer C7 Wireless AC1750 Dual Band Gigabit Router, 450 Mbps on 2.4 GHz + 1300 Mbps on 5 GHz, 2 USB Ports, IPv6, Guest Network
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: fast!!!!
Huge 2.4 GHz coverage, was not expected, very nice surprise!
so so coverage in 5 GHz as expected, still better coverage then old router

Cons: this router is not easy to setup nor is for the beginner,VERY difficult getting wireless devices linked to router, difficult changing LAN/WAN settings
IPV6?
Android devices was a snap connecting, ver. 4.0-4.4
HP Laser printer connected instantly, Wireless
Windows 7 laptop broadcom wireless EXTREMELY difficult
Windows 7 tablet intel wireless VERY difficult, + its not linking at max rate

Other Thoughts: Why i say this is not for the beginner, huge menu, way to many settings would be very confusing even more so that there is no instruction book "there is online"

overall this is a monster improvement over my old WNDR3400 that
NEVER PERFORMED correctly

when you do get everything setup and going this thing is FAST however wireless was my major issue but did get it going on windows devices

Samsung tab pro links @ 433Mbps
LG G2 links @ 390 Mbps. transfer avg = 270-320Mbps
Windows tablet @ 72Mbps its max is 144Mbps dang those intel drivers!!
Windows laptop connects max @72Mbps, Time to upgrade!

will update later on wireless rates

wired transfer rates avg is about 60-65MB transfer rates, avg for windows based

I only hope it lasts!

5 out of 5 eggs PERFECT OEM REPLACEMENT! 05/30/2014

This review is from: ASRock H61M-DGS LGA 1155 Intel H61 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: excellent oem replacement board for hp computer mobo failure

Cons: none so far

Other Thoughts: 1. this replaced a failed 2008 hp pc mobo failure
2. this board fits in oem case
3. the power headers/connectors are same place as oem board even pin placement is same on case headers
4. pc failed in 2011 was bought in 08, sat collecting dust until upgraded late 2013

even though had to buy new cpu/ram this was a quick cheap upgrade on a failed hp mobo using same case, power supply

paired with
*using original vista os 32 bit
*same stock/oem hdd
*upgraded Intel Celeron G1610 Ivy Bridge 2.6GHz
*upgraded G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR 1600

its no rocket however runs much better and faster then what was in it previously
