    Great router

    The TpLink Archer C2300 Cloud router has to be one of the best routers I have used in a long time. It is much smaller and compact compared to others I have. Installing was very easy with the TpLink Tether App. I had it up and running in about 10 minutes. The Tether app also allows you to make setting changes like parental controls and turning wireless networks on and off. You can also set up the router with a Web browser if you choose. Since installing the Archer C2300 I have not had any problems. Prior to installing the router my kids would constantly complain that the internet was being slow and movies took forever to load. Gaming with someone watching a movie on Netflix was nearly impossible with our old router. Now we have multiple devices watching movies and kids gaming all at the same time with no problem. The range of the Archer C2300 is amazing. I am able to get rid of the range extender that was needed with my old router due to dead spots with little or no wireless coverage. I love the shiny look of the Archer C2300. It looks great and blends in beautifully with my other electronic devices. Alot of routers i have had to disable the lights but i found that there was no need on this device because they are a perfect brightness. There is an option if you would prefer having them off. It has 2 USB ports for local storage sharing, printer sharing, remote access to a USB drive when away from home, and as a media server. This was a review of a free product received from TpLink as part of a review program.

    The TP-LINK Archer C2300 is solidly built with some heft to it. I like the conservative design that TP-LINK went with including the non-obtrusive LED indicators. The buttons and lights are easy to read and understand. Setup was hassle-free as I've come to expect from TP-LINK products as of late. I like the added feature of being able to use the TP-Link Tether app for managing the router outside of a web browser. This, like other newer Archer routers, has eliminated the need for me to use a range extender to reach the opposite side of my house from where the router is positioned. The 2.4GHz signal reaches this area, which was a dead zone when using other routers, and provides fast and reliable connections. My house has many wireless devices and I've noticed no decrease in speed once all devices were switched over to this router. The adeptness with which it handles so many devices is probably due to the 1.8 GHz dual-core 64-bit CPU along with the dual co-processors (1 for each band). The router includes two USB ports (1 USB3.0 and 1 USB2.0) for sharing files and/or printers. I connected a USB drive to the router for testing purposes and had decent read and write speeds (averaging about 100 Mbps). The one complaint I've had with many of the recent TP-Link routers was the lack of an "Access Point" setting. I am happy to report they've finally remedied this and it is now an option in this router. Submitted as part of a free sample program.

    Simple Setup, Great Features, Strong Signal

    The Archer C2300 is the most versatile router I've ever tried, and setup is so quick and easy. I used the mobile Tether app, but the web setup option is just as simple. You can manage advanced settings on either platform. It has the usual TP-Link features - parental controls, guest network, gigabit LAN ports, and USB ports. I'm happy to see new features such as built-in antivirus protection from TrendMicro, as well as optional cloud registration for remote management and notice of firmware updates. This product can be used either as a router, or an access point to extend the wireless range of your existing network. I'm getting a very good signal to every corner of my house and even into the patio. The dual core processor provides good speed to every device and there doesn't seem to be any impact to performance, no matter how many wireless devices we've connected at the same time.

    Doubled 2.4G performance and provided 5G as a bonus for me as compared to my previous Netgear router. Currently I am maxed out at my Cable company's bandwidth 30M which I pay for, so could not test it to its limits. Strong signal at all the corners of a 4800 sq feet house including basement. A similar ARRIS router which comes with a cable modem did not provide an as strong 2.4G and 5G signal at the farthest points. Trouble free operation for many weeks since installed without requiring reboots or disconnects. May further elaborate when I utilize other functionality like USB etc later. Bought this after lots of professional reviews and comparisons with competitors.

    Best Router in it's price class

    I picked this router up after owning a Netgear NightHawk AC 2300 R7000P which was more expensive. I was getting 50mbps on the Netgear from my Spectrum internet. I decided on a whim to try this TP Link after reading so many positive reviews and the price being so reasonable. I got over 100 Mbps right out of the box. This router has a 1.8 GHz CPU which I noticed is faster than most. I know the specs on paper don't match up with higher end Netgear or Linksys but this router just works. Dead spots are gone and I have not dropped a WiFi signal or seen any buffering on Netflix. I am very surprised and pleased with this router.

    Awesome router, good speeds and most importantly it is stable. I have had it up and running for several months with no issues. I have a lot of devices connected and dont experience slow downs like I expected. Overall great product. The UI is also very intuitive. TPLINK has come a long way in the last few years and I would highly recommend their products. *Submitted as part of a free sample program.

    Awesome router

    I've purchased a few routers in my day, but this one is blazing fast, it easily keeps up with/ surpasses the 200Gb/s service I get from Comcrap. Simple to install, has an app for ease of control, I could go on but don't want to waste you shopping time.

    Upgrading to this modem increased my download speed from 55 to 117 Mbps. It was easy to setup, my range was also extended. I would recommend this advanced modem. This review was submitted as part of a referral progam.

    It’s not a plug n play. You need a computer to set it up. Mine was defective. I called there customer support, they were able to answer my questions but weren’t much for support about why some features wouldn’t work.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend
