      I love that router

      Posted
      Brian

      This is a router that balances AC connectivity / high speed, price, and style. To me the most remarkable thing was how good this router looks. It is a genuinely handsome stylish router that doesn't really have to be hidden away. It uses the latest AC standard, meaning it can connect at very high speeds and is a reliable solid router. At the current price of around $100, this is a really great value. This router looks good. The body is glossy white with chrome trim. The antenna is white, so they tend to blend into the background better than black or gray. A not removable silver plastic stand supports the router nicely. There is one small design defect I don't like - the plastic stand continues around the top of the router (visually this is pretty). Unfortunately, that band gets in the way of attaching the antenna. I like to tighten down the antenna so they will not come loose - that plastic band gets in the way. If you only ever turn the antenna clockwise when you adjust them, the antenna will never come loose. The lights on the front are subtle and not bright - so there's no worries about an inadvertent night-light, or crazy flashing lights at night. I love the power switch (so few routers have power switches) and TP-Link went one step further - there is a power switch for wireless. That means you can use this as a router without the wireless turned on. A small function you might use one day. Setup was about average, I've seen much more difficult and I've seen easier. The router comes with an SSID and password. The only place those are printed is on the router - you'll want to write down the password before you install the router - lifting the router and reading the tiny numbers is no fun. I would prefer a printed card in the box - that way I don't have to write the password down. I configured my router wirelessly with a Mac - you could just as easily use a phone or a PC, the router doesn't care. Once you've set up the router and connected it to the Internet, connect wireless to the SSID listed on the router (it will be TP-Link and a few numbers). Enter the password. Now you'll need to enter the IP address of the router (listed in the manual) or tplinklogin.net. Admin is the user name and admin is the password. You can now select the setup wizard, which will be what most people need to set up their router. There are a couple of slightly cryptic settings - WAN connection type was an odd one for me. Fortunately Auto Detect found that I have an open Internet connection. You are allowed to change the SSID (or network name) and the password. If you don't mind a silly TP-Link ### name, and you don't mind entering a bunch of digits for the password - just leave that alone. I personally always change the SSID and password. Just be certain to make the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz network names different. It is always a good idea to change the administrator password. You have to go into the advanced settings to do that. I like TP-Link's main screen for devices that are connected. It is clean and simple. The router can be used for network attached storage through USB 3 port on the side or a USB 2 port on the rear panel. You can connect a USB drive or a thumb drive for the storage. It can also be used as a print server for printers without a wireless card. That may require a TP-Link app on the computer to use. The resource CD is a mini-CD. Don't bother trying to use that on a Mac. I had a lot of trouble on the TP-Link website getting downloads for any router. I wanted to see if the firmware needed updating and could never access the download section of the website. Easy information like owner's manuals and tech specs worked - I just couldn't get the firmware page to load. The router has four Gigabit ports for wired connections. I like the color-coding of the ports on the back panel. The only nit I have to pick is the wall wart AC adapter, it is huge. And it will take up two outlets. I prefer the laptop style AC adapters that only take up one electrical outlet. Range and speed is exactly what I expected. The router works extremely well. It is rock solid once up and running. I love the way it looks. And the price is well near perfect. This is a great little router.

      Archer C8 AC1750 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router *My Test Setup Desktop PC Windows 10 Pro AC1900 Wireless Dual Band PCI Express Adapter (Archer T9E) *Setting Up Setting up the router for the first time is quick and easy to do. Once everything is properly connected, you’ll be online in less than 5 minutes. And when you’re ready to dig into the router’s more advanced settings to customize to your liking, you’ll have plenty of options to dig into. You can set parental controls for certain users, as well as set up a Wi-Fi guest network for your guests, which keeps them off of your main network. Also, the router’s web management page is very nicely done, too. All the different settings are laid out perfectly and easy to navigate. *Wireless Performance After getting the Archer C8 router setup and running, I ran speed tests while connected to the router over both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands. Listed below is the current Internet plan I am subscribed to, along with those speed test results. My Internet Subscription Plan: Download 100 Mbps / Upload 10 Mbps Archer C8 Wi-Fi 2.4 GHz Speed Test: Download 111.65 Mbps / Upload 12.18 Mbps Archer C8 Wi-Fi 5 GHz Speed Test: Download 120.63 Mbps / Upload 12.14 Mbps As you can see, those are great speed test results. And the router was able to easily handle multiple devices connected at once- streaming HD content and gaming without any issues. I also have a very large backyard area, and the router provides excellent coverage in and around my entire home. I can stream HD videos and music without any issues at all. And I had 3 mobile devices all doing just that, and all were able to stream perfectly. For the best wireless coverage, be sure to place the modem in an open area of your home free of obstruction. Do not place the modem in an enclosure, under a desk, or block the vent-holes. Best of luck setting your network up.

      Highly recommended

      Posted

      I am very pleased with the performance of the TP-Link C8 AC1750 Dual Band router, and highly recommend it. The Quick Installation Guide made it very easy for me to set it up through a web browser with my laptop. My gateway only has a single band, but the C8 router automatically set up dual bands of 2.4 and 5 GHz. I used speedtest.net to compare the connection speed at a midpoint in the house between the router and the dead area, and found it to be more than double the speed of the previous wireless connection to my gateway. This was reproducible on 4 devices. By trial and error, I adjusted the three optional antennas to better direct the signal to the dead areas of my house. Although the speed dropped a bit, the signal was good and uninterrupted. Previously I had tried a range extender, but I was unable to get a reliable signal to the dead area. The USB ports are a nice bonus, so I can attach both my Seagate Central and my Lyve Studio to the router, getting good transfer rates for documents and images without any errors. Previously I had problems timing out during file transfers using my gateway and the range extender. I especially like the guest network, so visitors can connect to the Internet and I can still maintain the security of my own network. I also like the quality and design of the router as well as the location of the LEDs and ports.

      Great value router with fast speeds

      This AC1750 router does the basic dual channel setup on AC as well as b/g/n 2.4 and 5 GHz and the speeds are as advertised. Speeds do drop a bit when disabling the NAT boost feature (needed to enable advanced settings), but the advanced settings are worth it. There are a ton of options here from filters to custom times and guest networks, and so far everything has worked as intended. TP-Link may not be known by too many, but they make a lot of great products at a great value and cost well less than ASUS/NETGEAR but still pack most of the same features.

      Finally replaced an older Airport Extreme that I've had problems with for years. Granted I've only had this router up and running for a few minutes, so far it's awesome. Compared to the Airport Extreme, this thing has a greater range and speeds have been higher and remain constant (I pay for 30/5mbps and get 37/6mbps on speed tests through wireless). The interface is easy to use and contains plenty of options for configuring your network (I'm majoring in network administration so these options are great for someone like me). I haven't had a chance to utilize the USB port yet so I can't comment on that, I just hope it works unlike the Airport Extreme I previously used. The price is right on this one and I recommend to anyone looking for a router.

      After replacing this with my netgear router I found out it was not as quick as the netgear unit, if my son and daughter are streaming videos my stuff is extremely slow that wasn't the case with the netgear unit I'm sure this is a good router for a family of 2 but more than that count on it being slow.

      I tried several 2.4ghz routers before this that were 802.11.n and all of them had significant issues (Wifi strength was poor, and speed was also bad). This is the first 802.11.ac router that I tried, and could tell that the speed is significantly different, and I get Wifi anywhere in my house now.

      This router is fantastic. My brother recommended it after he purchased one and saw his download speed double. I had the same results. We are both on cable and had good routers before, but to double our speed both wireless and hardwired was incredible. I would highly recommend this unit. Its even easy to set up.
