    I had a Lynksys router that had extreme output and was also MU-MIMO, but I have high tech home and I am always adding more tech. So, I needed something that has great output and can handle more connections, like WIFI 6 can do. I also needed 8 Ethernet ports for all of the hubs. I also have about 28 connected devices like Apple TV, Rohu, 4 TV's, game console, Hue lights, cell phones, computers, iPads, etc. This things cranks out great speed. I am limited by my service at 400 mbs, These same speeds are throughout my first floor and reaching 200 on the second fl of a 3000 sq ft home. No lag, no buffering on any streaming device. I don't need a WIFI extender as well. This is my first TP-Link since I has ASUS and Linksys before. The ratings are quite high in comparison tests and they are accurate. This is easy to use and setup as well. I could not find a mesh system with that many Ethernet ports. That is why I am using this great router.

    Bought this router to upgrade my home network. I had good experience with my TP Link Archer C7, which now serves as a WiFi extender. Set up was easy - I used the tether app mostly. Love the built in speed test, parental controls and security features. Instantly saw a jump in speeds over the C7 from 250 mbps to 350. It’s a big router but it fits on the shelf where my old router sat. It’s only been a day but I’m feeling good about the upgrade.

    On a wifi6 device I got the same speed as wiring it directly. I came from a n600 so this was a huge upgrade. So non wifi6 devices did see a boost also but again I upgraded from n600.

    Probably the best coverage I've ever had with a Consumer level router and great throughput. I have had issues with it recognizing our very high speed internet connection and had to manually set the wan port to gigabit or it will default to lower speeds. I wish TPLink would update the firmware more often but other than that it has been a good performer.

    We never opened the box and returned it unused since we got a mesh router instead. If we were going to stick with this style, this would have been a good one. In the end we needed a mesh style to cover more of the house.

    I like this, because the tp-link link let you know how to fix with video that for internet access problem. So Netgear does nothing. And also, HomeCare is no fee for Lifetime. So Netgear is no fee for a year.

    Worked great until WAN Port glitched

    I have returned this router within BestBuy's return window. The Good: Router performance was awesome, reached corners of ~4000sq house and a detached garage without issue. Easy to use, very fast, handled upper 30 devices with 4 kids streaming class work (streaming Microsoft Teams and Zoom), teacher wife doing virtual teaching one day a week and me working from home. The Bad: WAN Port would randomly go to "unplugged" / "disconnected" depending on where you looked (iOS app or Webpage). When problem occurred, all devices would still connect to the Archer but the Archer would not connect to the AT&T provided router (1GB Fiber Arris BGW210-700). Note this AT&T router has been in use for months and has been feeding my pre-wired house (only bypassing it to get better WiFi range). Regardless, I swapped cables, put a dumb switch between the Arris and the Archer but problem remained. Contacted TP-Link Support and really didn't get that far (was told to force 1GB Full Duplex or 100MB Full Duplex). Didn't think a 4 day old router should require that. Unplugged the WAN port and plugging back in (either side) did not resolve, had reboot or power-off the Archer. I really did like this router and wanted it to work, but after having problems and seeing other reviews with similar issues (some reviews indicated worked great for months then WAN port failed). I decided to return and go with a different brand.
