*Very noticeable range and signal strength improvement compared to my 8 year old router (Asus RT-AC66U).
*No drops on connection while watching streaming videos, youtube, surfing the web, gaming, etc.
*Very easy to configure graphical user interface. You can just set it and forget it.
*If you have Alexa Echo, you can use it to send specific commands to this router to change its settings.
*Its tri-band and not dual band... much more versatile in accepting wireless connections.
*Very easy set up also on the hardware part... just attach the antennas, plug-in the power adapter & ethernet cable, and power it on.
*The TP-LINK AX11000 is just around the corner which supports the new AX wifi-6 speeds & WPA3 wifi security encryption. If you want to future proof despite the higher cost, you might want to get that instead.
*It's expensive but it does use pretty good hardware (Quad-core 1.8Ghz CPU, 1GB RAM, etc.)
*Lack of more gaming centered features compared to Netgear and Asus offerings.
*TrendMicro antivirus & home security is only for 3 years and not lifetime. I wish there's a way to switch this to BitDefender that other router offers once the TrendMicro 3 years subscription expires.
This is TP-Link's 1st gaming router and its pretty expensive. I'm a tech enthusiast and usually will get the best I can get. I was looking at the Netgear's XR700, and Asus ROG AC5300.. which looked pretty good on paper but has more negative reviews than this router so I ended up getting this one instead.
I was kind of torn between getting this one or waiting for the TP-LINK AX11000 but I kind of really need the upgrade quick. But thinking about it again, I game on a wired connection and I don't really have any devices that uses the AX wifi bandwith. Even if I do end up getting devices that uses AX signal in the future, 2.4Ghz & AC 5Ghz bandwith is plenty for my current and most likely future needs. This router covers my entire house already without the need of using mesh/repeaters/extenders.
Most of all, after doing massive downloads (Gigs of data - mostly Steam games), gaming, torrenting, watching 4k streaming videos, surfing the net, chatting, voip, etc... this device has did it all without breaking a sweat. It hasn't dropped any of my connections (both wired & wireless) and its been very stable. This is something rarely present on new released products that's why I'm hesitant to replace this with the new AX11000 offerings from TP-Link, Asus, or Netgear. I might end up with a defective product that is rushed released and not ready for prime time.
TP Link, I usually buy Asus or Netgear products when it comes to home networking but since their top of the line atm have more bad reviews... I'm taking a chance with you guys. I hope this router last a long time. In fact, the router it replaced (Asus RT-AC66U) didn't die or anything. It's just that as my network expands and my wireless needs grows, I have to upgrade. Don't let me down!
I also have this same review on N3W3GG
I suggest new buyers do the following as soon as you plug in the router: 1) Update the firmware first thing. 2) Don't make any changes to the default LAN address (yet) 3) Do a speed test between your PC and modem and then do another from one of the LAN ports on the router. Make sure it's pretty close to the modem speed (my old router is between 96% and 99% of max) 4) If all looks good at this point make your changes to the LAN address (if needed) and check again. Hopefully all will be fine. Unfortunately my experience was not so good.
This router has outstanding range. I have a NETGEAR Nighthawk AC1900 Dual Band WiFi Gigabit Router (R7000) which is a nice router but I needed something with longer range, so I thought I would take a chance with this, and I was not disappointed. I needed a Poweriver camera in the back of my home, 100ft from the router with the signal going through four 10 inch thick brick walls and one wood wall. So I set up two cameras side by side, one connected to the NETGEAR the other connected to this router both using standard wifi not 5G. With the NETGEAR I received no picture but a perfect picture with the TP-Link.

**UPDATE** I've contacted the manufacturer 4 times not and they keep sending me in circles insisting I factory reset (done this 3 times now) and try the same tech support 101 suggestions to no avail. Their customer support is terrible in my opinion and they would rather waste 4 hrs on the phone suggesting the same thing over and over rather then honor their "warrenty" on a $100 device.
And here are my results- LOVE IT!!
Picture from my iPhone around the 2 store house,
Here is the comparisons:
iPhone speed doubled - originally as you can see it in the attached image
between 35/130Mbps NOW over 220/269
Mac book pro 4X - originally was at around 150/180Mbps NOW it’s on average over 600/760Mbps
My Big Stand alone Mac connected directing is getting 980mbps no change there
Plus extra physical ports which I still use for hard wired home security devices
Over I’m very happy even tho it’s was pricey
Hope it will benefit someone!!
Best of luck Amazoners
Esto me llevó a comprar el Router Archer C5400X, este router solucionó todos mis problemas de intermitencia en el wifi. El software de TP-Link no lo había usado pero no he batallado para conectar los equipos (incluyendo MAC).
Lo que me gustó:
- No tuve problemas para instalarlo, desactive el wifi del modem de Telmex y por cable lo conecte al Router. Solo seguí las instrucciones de instalación sin mayor conocimiento técnico.
- La aplicación Thether es sencilla, estable y fácil de usar. Yo no había usado TP-LINK, pero me gusta.
- No he tenido ningún problema con el router, el equipo trabaja bien y sin problemas, ni complicaciones.
- Es muy fácil administrar la conexión de equipos individualmente, con 3 opciones de wifi (1 de 2.4hz y 2 de 5hz)
- En el caso de los juegos en linea, ya no tengo problemas de desconexión.
Lo que me sorprendió:
- Ya no tengo problemas de wifi intermitente, puedo hacer mis llamadas por internet sin problema.
- El Router tiene mucho mayor alcance, duplicó el rango, ahora tengo wifi en toda la casa (3 pisos) sin necesidad de un extensor de wifi.
- La capacidad de tener un control parental es una maravilla... con esto puedo controlar mejor en cada equipo conectado a que los niños hagan su tarea limitando su acceso a paginas de juegos, Facebook, YouTube, Tiktok, etc.
- La mayoría de mis equipos tenían capacidad de conectarse a la red 5hz, esta dice tener un rango Menor de cobertura, pero en mi caso la señal funciona perfectamente inclusive en el 2do piso lejos (router ubicado en el 1er piso).
Lo que encontré diferente a mis expectativas:
- Pensé que las antenas se doblaban, pero no en el Router Archer C5400X, son fijas.
- En las fotografías parece como si la parte de arriba y parte de las antenas tuvieran colores gris plateado, pero es el caso, en realidad es todo negro, que al final me gusta mas así.
- Tengo una bocina Alexa conectada al WIFI y funciona perfectamente con el wifi del Router C5400X, pero encontré que el software no es compatible para hacer que Alexa ejecute cambios en el router.
Vale la pena la inversión, si fue caro pero administra el Router administra muy bien el wifi. Si quieres dejar de batallar para entrar a tus conferencias de trabajo, jugar en linea sin que se detenga la imagen a cada rato, si quieres tener mayor control con la cantidad de tiempo que tus hijos usan internet, este equipo te ayuda a hacerlo.
I LOVE this router. My household has a mix of wired and wireless clients and I really had a hard time getting the wireless side right. The former Apple and TpLink routers could not really cope with the increasing number of WiFi devices vying for the available bandwidth. While the house’s layout is not exactly challenging, we had endless problems with performance/ disconnections. The former Archer C8 was particularly troublesome in this respect even with the help of extenders.
Well, all of those issues are a thing of the past now with this new router. It might not be the fastest or the flashiest out there but with our mix of phones, tablets, streamers and laptops it never skipped a beat. No more poor connections on Skype calls, no more buffering on Crave and Netflix, no more unexplainable disconnects, solvable only by power cycling the router.
The setup was pretty straightforward with no hiccups. Perhaps the only one is our old wireless HP printer which connected but took ages to respond and print anything, probably due to some incompatibility. There were no new firmware available for this printer so I solved the problem by simply connecting it via regular Ethernet. Problems gone!
Now my new wifi router collects dust undisturbed. As it should.
Did I mention I love it?
Was easy to set up but almost too easy. If you are looking for screens of options you won't find it here.
Now the bug - this isn't only router I've heard have this issue but as I didn't have the issue previously till I got this router I have to attribute a bit of blame to it. All worked well at first - then next day my laptop could not hook to the 2.4 network - citing incorrect password. Okay - using same password as previously should be no reason, even copied directly - still no go - switch to 5ghz network - works!
Well I can't switch everything to 5ghz and I have a lot of smart devices relying on the 2.4 - did all the things you can do on the device end but seems the only real solution is to restart your router - till it happens again! (haven't tried it but the belief is when this happens it defaults to the router password it came with - really?)
This should not be a thing in 2019. Router needs to be more reliable than that and as this 'bug' seems to have been around for a while I would have thought there would be a fix. And if your looking to trouble shoot it there are no logs to check since the interface access is dumbed down.
Conclusions - great wifi if you don't get the reseting bug, but if looking to get your hands dirty in admin for configuring maybe not for you.
