Summary: This router allows me to get speed wirelessly. I was having issues with Xfinity Comcast Netgear router so I bought this one to replace it. I was only getting 10mbps down and now I can get 30mbps or better. This is my second TP-Link device and I really enjoy their products.
Summary: Pros: - One of the cheapest AC1750 routers in the market. - Gigabit Ethernet ports + WAN - External antennas - Wireless on/off switch - Power on/off switch - Dual USB 2 ports Cons: - IPV6 does not work on the V2 with the latest firmware and Comcast/Xfinity internet - Lots of firmware bugs + translation bugs. - Lack of USB 3 - 5Ghz is extremely weak especially with internal antennas. - Support is not fluent in English. - Cannot name DHCP Reservations.
Summary: I selected the C7 after having come to the conclusion that it had become time to replace my trusty Tomato equipped Linksys E3000. I used a number of sources to make my selection including Smallnetbuilder, WikiDevi, and Newegg & Amazon user reviews. I was looking for a fast and reliable router to serve my all wireless N network. The C7's AC capabilities really only add bonus value for future expandability.
Summary: Works well and set up was easy. Connecting a printer was also very simple. Anywhere near the router, I get 50 mbps down, 10 mbps up, which is exactly what I pay for. I tried to avoid the rental fees and purchase a quality router, and I simply could not get anywhere close to wired speed with any of the cheaper options I tried, including a cisco E1200.
Summary: I got this to replace a Linksys WRT610N which suffered a fatal blow after a power outage. I really wanted to stick with Linksys since it's all I've ever used for my home network but after reading tons of reviews I couldn't find one for $150 or less that consistently had good reviews so I broadened my search....
Summary: This doesn't work. Period. Calling this piece of garbage a router is really unfair to routers that work. The 5ghz band starts dropping connections within minutes and requires a restart while the 2.4ghz band lasts a couple of hours. This is with a V1 router and the latest firmware. When the connection isn't dropped, it's fast, but that's worthless since it doesn't actually work reliably (the 5mhz band can't be said to work at all).
Summary: My network connection is 6000/768Kbps ADSL through DSLExtreme and live in a house which has lot size of ~20K sq-ft. Our household has upwards of ~15 types of wireless devices including 5 laptops, 3 game machines, 4 tablets, iPod touch, Nintendo DS', and a few other hand held gaming devices - average of 5 or 6 connected to the router simultaneously.
If you are a MAC User: BEWARE!!! Archer C7 V1 shipped & won't work on 5GHz band

Summary: *** A shame that AMAZON sellers keep on selling Version 1 of this Archer C7 product, KNOWING FULLY THAT IT IS NOT COMPATIBLE with APPLE Mac Computers*** *** PLEASE AMAZON / REMOVE ALL SELLERS shipping Archer C7 Hardware Version 1 / OR AT LEAST Make it known in the title of the product which version it is *** Like everyone here, I was really eager to try the Archer C7 because it was priced reasonably vs other offerings, and yet offered an upgrade path to 802.11ac from...
This is the upgrade I hoped for and then some. NOW ADDED A 2nd AS A BRIDGE

Summary: I usually wait a couple of weeks for my reviews of tech products, but I am so thrilled with this purchase after 24 hours that I can't wait. This is replacing my D-Link DIR-825 that I have had for more than 4 years. I have been happy with the D-Link but it has been dragging when it comes to actual routing.
Summary: First, let me caution anyone in the US that you MUST ensure that you are using the correct frequency setting as the UK and the USA do not have the same bands available for wireless. With that said, here is my evaluation of the US version of this Router: I have a lot of wireless devices in my household and I am always looking for better range and features from a Wireless Router. I decided to give the TP-LINK ARCHER Wireless Router a try.
