    Reliable Performance with Plenty of Features

    This is one of the smallest, lightest, and cheapest AC1750 Wi-Fi routers I have used. The C7 does not draw much power, which is a nice bonus. This is also apparent in the temperature of the unit when I have multiple devices attached, as it barely gets warm to the touch. Setup was very straightforward on this Wi-Fi router. I do recommend updating the firmware to the latest version before you configure it, which saves you from having to do it again after the update. The latest version also seems to be a lot more stable overall. The C7 has all the modern and advanced features you would expect to find in an AC1750 Wi-Fi router. I like that these includes two USB ports, perfect for a print server and attaching an external hard drive to. The 4 Ethernet ports are also Gigabit speed! In terms of performance, the C7 works very well. The 3 antennas provide great coverage and range. I found that having the outer antennas at a 45 degree angle and the middle antenna standing straight up, worked best for me. I am also getting really good speeds with near hardwired speeds when the C7 is in line of site. Overall the C7 has been very stable and reliable. The advanced features in a small and simple form factor are its biggest strengths. Submitted as part of a free sample program.

    Easy Setup, Good Value Dual Band Router

    I followed the Quick Installation Guide included in the box to set up this Archer C7 v4.0 AC1750 router. After I plugged it in and the LEDs confirmed connectivity, it was incredibly smooth and easy to configure using the TP-Link mobile Tether app. Then I logged into the web interface at http://192.168.0.1 to view the advanced settings. Instead of using a local account I also chose the option of binding it to my TP-Link cloud account for remote management. I found an available firmware upgrade and applied it, 1.0.3 Build 20170609 rel. 53316 (5553). This dual band router gave me a reliable signal with consistent throughput over a moderate range, making it a good product at a reasonable price that's perfect for an apartment or small home office. The features are ideal for my needs, from sharing a printer and USB file server to supporting QoS, VPN, and Parental Controls. I particularly like the ability to enable a guest network for visitors without allowing them to see each other or my own network. I can view and manage connected devices with either the app or web interface. This review was submitted as part of a free sample program.

    Fast Midrange AC router

    Posted

    The AC1750/C7 is a midline home router. The C7 is pretty straight forward, but could be a lot for a novice to use. Think of this router when you want more flexibility with your network. The AC1750 has some nice features and includes 2 USB2.0 ports for backups, filesharing or a print server. The AC1750 has guest networks, good speed and some limited parental controls. The wired switch is gigabit a must in todays advanced home networks. 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/ or http://192.168.0.1 in your browser. Follow the onscreen instructions and you’re done. Just make sure you pick good strong passwords. The setup interface seems a little dated when compared to some other models. However most people don’t spend much time in their routers setup so it’s really not an issue. The Wi-Fi speed is good, I had no difficulty streaming Netflix or Amazon video to my phone, while our smart TV did the same thing. The three antennas make for some good coverage. Nice product with nice features! Submitted as part of a free sample program.

    Good Router, Works very well, Great Wi-Fi Range

    This device is easy and quick to setup. The quick start guide is easy to follow. I was able to get it up and running within five minutes. This router is fast and powerful. This powerhouse can provide fast and reliable both wired and wireless internet. I have been having this device setup for few days and it has been running up and strong. I haven’t had any issues with this device. I did not have to restart the device once. I am very impressed with the reliability of the device. I have 2800sqft home and it provides Wi-Fi coverage to almost entire house without any extra extender or access point. The router comes with two USB port. I used one of the USB port to connect my hard drive to make it available for all the computers to use it as network drive. The other USB port was used to connect my USB printer as network printer. The convenience was very handy for both network hard drive and the network printer. I am really happy with the router and so far I don’t have any complaint or concern about the router. The reliability is similar to its competitor and it is cost effective as well. I highly recommended this router. Submitted as part of free sample program.

    3 router connection options

    Posted
    RomReader

    What makes this router more advanced than other wi-fi routers is that you can connect to it via an app on my smartphone called Tether app (pic 01). Just makes things easier and more convenient for me and my family. I'm used to connecting via web browser so I had to consult the manual and it was a quick setup process. This Archer C7 router also has 2 USB LED plug ins, which I can connect my external drives directly to so I can open documents or print files or pictures quickly (pic 02). Good wifi range for my 2-story house. Sufficient connectivity overall & haven't experienced the inconsistencies others have with this router. Also like how much thinner & less bulky this router is compared to my older TP-link router. Well recommended. Submitted as part of sample program.

    Nice n EZ

    Posted
    slick

    After finding out that to setup a new 4k Smart tv, I would need a new AC router, to replace a balky, tired 8 yr. old N router. After reading reviews I chose this one because of TP Link's size & reputation. It also added more speed, & I did NOT want the bare minimum 1200. At 69, I wanted to "futureproof" myself, if possible. The installation was relatively EZ, except for a hard to understand their accent customer service rep. After WAY TOO LONG, he finally asked me to switch the leads & VOILA, we were in business. SO now we have a Smart TV, a printer, a new laptop & an 8 yr old netbook, as well as the cable tv box all hooked up, and all were EZ. I am in NO way Tech-savvy & would recommend this unit to anyone. My price wound up in the mid-sixties, due to Best Buy's Trade-in Recycling program, which I advise you utilize'

    This lower end router really proved to be a workhorse. It works on both 2.4 and 5 GHz bands. It instantly gave me excellent performance on 802.11ac connection. I’ve connected my USB printer to one of C7’s USB ports, and was able to share my wired printer among all my wired and wireless computers. Also, I was able to connect my WD external hard drive to its second USB port, and it became a network share allowing me to instantly share files among all computers and other devices including my media player. This router also allowed me to create guest network, so I don’t have to give out my WiFi access info and can isolate my devices from visitors. The router has support for OpenVPN and PPTP VPN built in, which allows secure access to my home computers and files from the internet when I am not at home. Some other features that I find useful include QoS, parental controls and offline downloads. The setup was very quick and I was on-line within a few minutes. The unit looks solid, and has 3 detachable antennas.

    Super Easy Setup

    Posted
    Zipeedee

    I have setup many WiFi routers, and this by far is the easiest and fastest one I have ever done so far. It took maybe less than 5 minutes in all. It pretty much does everything on it's own as long as you follow the illustrated instructions. Once you log into the web interface in only takes seconds to have it up and running after you set up an account. Of course if you want to go into more specific account settings such as parental controls and QoS priority, it will take a bit more time. The only difference with the Archer C7 and C8 is that the C7 does not have a 3.0 USB port. Other than that, all the other features all all the same. The only reason it loses a star is because the 5.0 GHz band does not seem as strong as the 2.4GHz. I have a strong 5 bar on the 2.4, but only get 3 bars at the most on the 5.0 GHz.
