    Inexpensive router with nice features

    Posted
    Chris1433

    The AC1200/C50 is a no frills easy setup wireless router. The AC1200 is a simple product, this is not for the high-end user. This product if for the casual user that needs Wi-Fi at a low cost. The AC1200 is smaller than most home routers. You’d think with the size you would have to sacrifice some features this is not the case. The AC1200 still has guest networks, good speed and some limited parental controls. The wired switch is not gigabit, but if you have a limited wired lan this will be just fine. The setup is pretty straight forward plug it in and connect to it via Wi-Fi, the SSID and the initial password are printed on the bottom of the unit. Connect to the Wi-Fi and visit http://tplinkwifi.net/ in your browser. I could not visit the configuration page via IP address because my cable modem has the same IP range. Follow the onscreen instructions and you’re done. Just make sure you pick good strong passwords. Submitted as part of a free sample program.

    great entry level router

    I received this unit as part of the TP-link reviewer program. My opinion is honest and unbiased. This is a great entry level router to get you to the wireless AC standard inexpensively. I would say that this is an entry level device and not as fast as its more expensive cousins but for someone with a small network that's not streaming from multiple devices and is in an small to average sized house this unit will work just fine. The setup was straight forward and I had no issues at all. The directions were clear and easy to follow and should be easy for anyone to setup regardless of computer skill. If you looking for the highest performing router this inst it but for the price its and excellent entry level device for someone with a smaller network and few clients.

    Just got one of these for use in my business. Replaced an old router and this one definitely provided a stronger, more reliable signal. We are able to put it in the back storage closet and still get coverage throughout the building. Love the multiple bands and guest channels – perfect for securing a line for business work and credit card processing while also offering a separate public/guest channel.

    I haven't had this product long enough to give a full review on performance, but it installed fairly easily for this tech challenged buyer. I had trouble with a previous brand dropping service. It happened once with this router, but not sure if it was the router's problem. I'm confused by the two links provided and don't understand how they work together as they both say connected.

    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.

    Product came on time and as described. Hook up was reasonably easy though I did need tech support and then needed tech help from my ISP. Router seems to be working fine and range was an improvement over my prior Linksys E1200 n router. Happy with the product

    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.

    I no longer need the cable modem from my cable provider because I added this router to a low cost modem. It will pay for itself in about a year and although there may be better options out there, they are more costly.

    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

    So far, so good. Setup was easy and except for an initial re-boot I've had no problems. Documentation is almost non-existent; I still am not sure what one of the icons on the front means.

    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.
