    Bought this to increase signal to the back of the house as the modem/router combo wasn't very strong. I opted for this instead of a booster as my modem/router was only wireless-N. The coverage is much better and I get full speed through the house.

    Setup/customization can be less than perfect if you need advanced settings, but it gets the job done. I can't say where other people have had performance issues, as mine was able to give me the full 400mbps my provider dishes out to my home.

    Generally a very good product. Once in a while have to reboot it, but don't know if that is an issue with Comcast, not the router.

    This router was easy to set up and has a built-in utility. The connection to the internet is auto detected. The range is sufficient for a proximately 1500 square foot home

    I have only used this router for a few weeks. So far the speed is excellent. The range is more than sufficient for a two story house. Not sure about long term reliability, although I had a TP Link in the past that lasted a few years before I upgraded.

    Purchases this to replace a very old gateway. Have a larger two story house and this unit works perfectly. Have had no issues. Seems to cover everywhere. We have 3 cells 1 tablet and 3 computers all running at various times and have had no lag or cutout.

    Was looking to replace an old router. I was having trouble getting a reliable signal on the 2nd floor of the house, as well as any signal at all in the basement. The cable guy suggested upgrading the router. I didn't want to spend a lot, but the cable guy said any newer router would probably offer some improvement. This router immediately fixed all my problems on the 2nd floor, and after a little antennae adjustment, the basement problem was fixed as well. The dual band is a plus; I use the 5 on my tv that is close to the router and the speed and picture are great! I also like having a guest network option to offer to my mother's caregivers.

    Perfect for SOHO and/or Dorm Rooms

    This is a review of a free product received from TP-LINK as part of the review program. If you're looking for a basic, easy to use router with great coverage & performance OR you're looking to upgrade to the blazing speeds of 802.11ac, the Archer C50 is for you! I found the Archer C50 to be perfect for dorm rooms, small houses & apartments. The dual band WiFi speed & coverage are very impressive, considering the price point. However, the addition of (4) Fast Ethernet & (1) USB ports makes this little guy entirely too hard to pass up! I was able to game, stream (video and/or music), browse, & make video calls with ease. A word of caution though, if you're providing WiFi for more than 2 people or are in an area swamped with WiFi networks, this router isn't for you. You simply just need to look at a more powerful model in the Archer series.

    Small but packs a punch!!

    When I received the TP-Link Archer C50 and opened the box I thought to myself "What is this little thing going to do!?" "Its so little compared to any of the other routers I have owned!" But I was sure mistaken! Do not let the size of it discourage you because it keeps up with a lot of other routers on the market today. The Archer C50's WiFi speeds are Amazing! It can preform simultaneously on the 2.4GHz band up to 300Mbps and on the 5GHz band up to 867Mbps for a total bandwidth of 1.2Gbps. I have not had any issues at all with it at all. It let me use multiple devices without any internet lag or drops. Installing and setting up is quite easy with the included Quick installation Guide and the convenient Web browser utility.It only took me about 10 minutes to get up and running. I choose to mount the Archer C50 on the wall but it can also be laid flat on a desk or shelf. The Archer C50 is a beautiful shiny black with 2 grey dual band antennas.The antennas do not come off. I love the green lights on it. Most of my devices have blue lights so having the green is a nice change. It has 4 of the 10/100Mbps LAN Ports and 1 USB 2.0 Port. The USB port can be used for Remote access via FTP Server, Media sharing, Local storage sharing, and Printer sharing. It also has options for setting up Guest networks, and Parental controls. There is a convenient "Tether" app that you can download for accessing the Archer C50 from your iOS or Android device. . If you are wanting to move up to an 802.11ac Dual band router from your old Wireless 802.11n router than this would be ideal. This is a perfect router for anyone and you can't beat the price.Overall I am impressed with the size, quality, and speed and will be certainly be recommending the Archer C50 to my family and friends.This is a review of a free product received from TP-LINK as part of the review program.
