    Ease of use, Set up

    A complete improvement from the fios router I had in use from Verizon. Range and signal has multiplied exponential to all areas that previously had bad reception. No issues were experienced with the dual band 2.4ghz/5ghz identical SSID setup. Devices select the best band to use. Setup was simple and there are many advanced config menus for those who want to get granular. Speed test menu built in. If you have fios make sure you use a cat 6 cable from the ont and release the IP from the router before replacing. This TP-Link is way ahead of it game.

    Great router

    Pros mentioned:
    Range, Set up

    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.

    Improved internet signal strength in our home. Gets warm so I would not put anything on top of it and place it in a well ventilated place.

    If you have an open area, this router is good for you. If you have a lot of boundaries likes doors and walls, then you will have dead spots around.

    Connection quality

    So far, so good. I had an older, lower speed capable Net Gear dual band, located in my basement. Yeah, not a good location when all of our connections and streaming take place on the first floor. But, the better half wanted no more boxes/units on the TV stand, so it stayed in the basement. It did seem occasionally we'd lose connection, and my kids (all adults) complained about slowness of their phone connections when visiting. But now that I put this baby in place, I suspect they will no longer be complaining. I'm regularly getting speeds of 85+ down and 15+ up and coverage seems good all through my 2-story house. Set up was very easy, but I kept all defaults, only changed the sign on access info.

    We use the internet for t.v and everything else in our house. Use about 450gb a month. This router is in a good ventilated area with no sun hitting it. Still only lasted about a year before intermittently failing. Now its nore continuous so I will have to replace it. Had good coverage for a mid sized home, could have been a bit better though. I will try another brand this time.

    I read reviews on this router and decided to purchase one. Easy to hook up, easy to get into the software and change the settings to my preferences. The range exceeds all my expectations and is super fast down loading. Also has an excellent firewall.

    This replaced a Netgear router Geek Squad installed for me many years back. Unfortunately, I have to return the TP Link C2300. I have struggle to access media files between my NAS and my other devices. They are attached to the router via Ethernet. The router is upstairs and all devices are downstairs with the cable in the walls. I can't do it. I just got off the phone with TP Link support. One cannot move files between networked devices via ethernet. I can plug a USB device in back of the router and share those files. But that's all. Router is useless to me.

      Hi Bill,

      Thank you for your review. The Archer C2300 will view your NAS just as any other network attached device and pass/route data packets accordingly. In your case, it's likely the NAS is configured using the previous router's network configuration (IP/gateway). Please ensure it is properly configured for the new router's network schema.

      We're sorry to hear your initial interaction with our Support Team was anything less than satisfactory, and we would appreciate another opportunity to follow up with you to address your concerns. At your earliest convenience, please send an e-mail to USSupportTeam@TP-Link.com and include a link to your review and a copy of any correspondence you may have received from the original support agent(s).

      Thank you,
      TP-Link Support

    Simple Setup, Great Features, Strong Signal

    Pros mentioned:
    Ease of use, Range, Set up

    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. Submitted as part of a free sample program.

    Range, Speed

    Looked in to wifi6/AX routers, but current first gen units do not fully implement the wifi6 innovations resulting in no real world speed gains over AC, but with lower reliability. AX are simply not ready for primetime, I switched to TP-Link ten years ago after realizing you get the same hardware for half the price , and materially better reliability (on-average). First I tried and returned the qualcom/atheros based Archer C6. Poor range, cheap feel— weighed next to nothing. Then I bought this unit, which features a Broadcom chip set. HUGE aluminum heat sinks inside; weighs three to four times the Archer C6/A6. And the power adapter is literally three times the wattage of the C6/A6, which gives some indication that the radios are more powerful. The radios are very powerful indeed and the range is insane. Also the antennas are dual band and detachable. I have an extension co-ax cable on each antenna, spreading them out in a straight line spanning 40ft above my dropped loft apartment ceiling. I turned off three other access points and now the whole 2500sq ft loft apartment, built in a cast iron building with all metal studs construction, is served with lightning fast reliable WiFi by this single router. It’s bulletproof. If you buy this router, the most important thing you can do is to add forced air fan cooling, running 24/7. In my case I made a fan shroud out of a shallow plastic sushi take-out container which is attached with double stick tape and zip ties sealing over the entire top panel/vents. Two USB **ball bearing** fans made by CoolerGuys attach to the outside of the shroud , over two approx 3 inch holes cut in the bottom of sushi container. The USB power for the fans is plugged in to the router’s USB 2.0 port. The Broadcom radios are very high power, but also far less efficient than qualcomm/atheros and thus generate boatloads of heat. This is unfortunate, but frankly I simply need the higher performance and accept the efficiency trade off. But as you can see reading through the reviews, the radios will def cook themselves prematurely in the absence of forced air cooling — despite their massive heatsinks. The fans are essential.

    Just got it yesterday and connected it today and thats's it. Getting internet was that simple. Its blazing fast and one of the fastest routers used thus far. One important thing, it's fully compatible with Fios. So saved some real bucks as Fios recently raised there router rental. Anyone looking for real great speeds, just go for this router. Every penny is worth for this router.
