    Bought two routers, one as primary in the house and a second as a WAP in the garage via a gigabit fiber link. Use the website page to configure, not the phone app! Have separate 2G and 5G SSIDs on both routers so I can pick whatever works best around the property. 5G caps at 300 Mbps (ISP limit) and 150' range, 2G 150 Mbps and 250' range. 2G and 5G both run 100+ Mbps within 100' of either router. 3X 5G devices running speed test simultaneously = 250 Mbps total bandwidth

    The TP link router has been great so far. We live somewhere with shared internet and we just need our own router and for the price this one has been doing a great job. I haven’t had any slowdown or dropped internet.

    Easy setup, good signal throughout my home, handles multiple devices well and the option to prioritize bandwidth to device X or device Y is a handy feature.

    Good speed, fairly easy install. I have limited space so not a fan of the antenna design, but otherwise solid.

    My cable company didn’t tell me about my small service fee for using their router - it adds up! I said one word “forgetaboutit!”, and got my own. Feeling better everyday.

    I bought this item knowing it probably wasn’t going to make a difference going into it but easily the best 100$ I’ve spent. It doubled my range and download in every room compared to the original spectrum router. I no longer need an WiFi extender.

    This router came highly rated for its pricepoint, and I have to say that it served its purpose to absolute perfection! No complaints I could possibly muster, especially considering the budget and pricepoint I spent on this device. With an easy Plug-&-Play setup to my ISP provided modem, this router was able to deliver strong bandwidth to all devices in my home, which extends throughout my 1500sqft apartment with ease. This router will provide the adequate power necessary for most individuals seeking an easy solution to achieve a solid home network!! (Coming from someone who works from home and plays A LOT of games)

    Got it for $60 when it was on sale and it is the best $60 I’ve ever spent. The wifi never reaches my room so my tv is constantly buffering or not working. I was skeptical about this because it’s a lower model but it has been amazing. My tv loads instantly and runs smoothly without interruption. I highly recommend this

    I was looking for a solid router without breaking the bank, and the Archer AX20 fit the bill. Setup was a breeze, the speeds are great for streaming and gaming, and it easily covers my whole apartment. It's got some fancy features I haven't used yet, but for the basics, it's seriously impressive for the price.

    Very rocking machine! By that I mean it’s really stable and reliable since purchasing. The speed is actually faster than the stock router supplied by the ISP and hasn’t gone down or had issues since hooking it up. Wifi is greatly extended compared to original as well and works great on all our family home devices! Must recommend product for all gaming and streaming needs for a family of 5 people with at least 3 or more devices per person connected at one time. Fast reliable and convenient!

    I like the router and it was easy enough to setup. I later researched VPNs and purchased one. Only then did I discover the router was not compatible with my VPN as far as running it through the router. I wish I would’ve gotten one that is.

    Mid Range WIFI6 (AX) Router Beats Expectations

    |

    Posted . Owned for less than 1 week when reviewed.

    Short review - This is a "mid range" wifi 6 (ax) router that will work and exceed most people's expectations for its price. Details - This is a wifi 6 router, which means it supports the new wifi convention ax, the previous ones were known as ac, n, g which have now been renames as wifi 5, 4, 3. This means that newer devices that are wifi 6 compatible will really benefit from the new tech which will clear up any congestion on your home network. But if you are using older devices that only have an ac wifi card in your device, do not worry, ALL wifi 6 routers are rated for backwards compatibility. With Wifi 6 , it also comes with MU-MIMO technology, which in laymans terms means you will be getting much better stable connections between all your devices. The 1800 in the ax1800 stands for up to 574mbps on 2.4ghz channel and 1201 mbps on 5 ghz channel. Frankly I am not sure what the difference between the Archer AX20 vs AX21, since both are listed as Archer AX1800. This might just be something to differentiate between retailers. As far as I can tell on their website the specs are the same across the board. Ethernet ports are rated for gigabit, so thats going to be plenty for most of residential users. The USB port is unfortunately only 2.0, but can still hook up your hdd for a network storage solution. I have this placed in a central location in the house, coming from from a dual band ac600 (300/300) router, I am getting amazing speeds, but importently I am getting 5-4 bars in all 7 rooms in the house, 4 on the same level as the router, with 2-3 walls in between, and the 3 rooms in the basement. I am slowly getting more wifi 6 devices, such as my smartphones, laptop (you can easily upgrade wifi cards in your laptops), ps5 and I am getting amazing wifi speeds. I pay for the 1000 mbps internet service, and at best I was getting around 450 on the 5ghz channel about 10 feet away, with one wall. Now on the TP Link AX20, I am now getting 800-900 on the 5hz channel about 10 feet away with one wall.

    Very good lower cost upgrade for 1) More bandwidth, 2) Smarter firmware, like auto band switching to balance load, and 3) increased range over my 5+ year old Netgear. Easy setup and no issues after 3+ weeks of use.
