The C7 at this point is outdated and starting to be discounted. It is still a top performer, but I would recommend the C8 today. The C8 is using newer networking chips as indicated on technical review sites and a few other notable changes to the architecture. I do not believe the upcoming C9 to be much different in terms of performance relative to the C8. The C9 has a slightly newer chip for 2.4GHz performance at a slightly higher cpu frequency. My concern with it is it may translate into higher power with no noticeable improvement in real life performance.
You do not need aftermarket antennas with it. The supplied antennas will perform better than aftermarket antennas. It turns out this is one of the aspects that TP Link did to differentiate its new products from competing solutions.
I don't see any major firmware issues at the moment. My came shipped with the latest firmware when I check the settings versus the manufacturer's website. Some other manufacturer's released their competing product earlier but with poor firmware that caused most early adopters to have significant issues. I am glad to see that TP Link waited for enough testing before putting a competing solution on the market.
I did considerable research on TP Link since I was not at all familiar with the brand. Unlike other brands, they do their designs in house and do not outsource product development third parties.Read more ›
* Installation and setup was easy. Had basic setup up and running, wired and wireless in about 10 minutes.
* Instruction for basic quick setup were enough for a quick setup for wired and wireless usage.
* After basic setup, I exercised a few of the more advanced features.. all went well. The router UI on port forwarding could be better, but still acceptable.
* I activated the FTP server feature. This was great. I will have my internet cameras log motion triggered video to that FTP server. That was my intention and so far, looks like it will work. I have accessed the FTP through the web via a computer, but have not actually had the time to direct my cameras to the FTP site yet.
* I attached a USB drive to the USB 3.0 port. Works perfect. Acts as a network drive. I also plan to use this drive as my FTP destination for my camera files
* So far.. I am very pleased that my intended advanced use of the FTP and USB drive features of this router seem to be hitting the mark.
But then... Wife comes home from work. Tries out the new WIFI network with her iPhone and work computer....
* Unstable connection.
* Devices keep dropping connection even in areas where signal strength is Excellent. Especially the iPhone.
* Connection is up for only 3 - 5 minutes, then drops. Picks up again in 30 seconds or so. Stays connected 2 - 5 min again. Repeats.
* Now alerted to this, tried with various other computers and tablets (Apple, Win, and Andriod). Same thing. The only time it was not happening was if one was within 10 feet of the router. Again, the `drops' were occurring about 20+ feet away, with signal strength as `Excellent'.Read more ›

Fortunately, this product has a lot more going for it on the inside than on the outside. For beginners, this is not just a simple wireless transmitter but a remarkably featured and incredibly FAST router as well. It actually has many more security options and a much faster (dual core) processor than my Cisco home router does. Just the clock speed of the processors alone make it 6x as fast and it actually costs less than I paid for the Cisco (ouch). It offers pretty much all of the bells and whistles one would expect from a home router including built-in VPN, gigabit Ethernet ports, traffic shaping and optimization, a firewall, port forwarding, DMZ (for one IP address and device only, unfortunately), parental controls, a more than adequate logging and statistics program, a USB print server, USB3 Network Attached Storage, DDNS, IPV6... the list just seems to go on and on. Setting aside its wireless features, this is the equal of just about any home or SOHO router you will find available today.
On the wireless side, it's a great performer with quite a number of security options and the newest ac wireless standard which (theoretically, at least) provides wireless speeds of up to 1.75Gbps. This makes it a great router for multimedia and has performed flawlessly streaming Netflix for over a month now.Read more ›
