When I got this router, I really liked it. Ease of installation, advanced features were pretty nice. I use OOMA for phone, I have dedicated servers set up, I use mac-address static routing, etc... So, I know a little about networking. We have a couple of gaming consoles, multiple computers, tablets, phones, a couple of smart tvs, etc... I also have the OOMA for home phone, as stated before. So, I have several devices.
When I purchased this router I made the decision to go full wireless at home. I previously had wired LAN all pc's, but just got tired of having to troubleshoot (rarely) and wanted to avoid the (future) installation of more wire. Also, I'm still use CAT5e so the wireless nowadays is actually faster than my LAN. So, I decided to just buy some PCI-e Wireless Adapters (also tp-link) for all my desktops and just go full wireless. But, I knew I needed a up-to-date/faster router that could handle higher speed and multiple clients. Therefore, I purchase the TP-Link Archer AC1900 Smart WiFi Router (Archer C9).
This router worked great...for 2 weeks. Now, when I say it worked for 2 weeks, I mean to say that the 5ghz "chip" worked for 2 weeks before dying. I mean it just...stopped... working. It stopped producing a signal. I have my pc about 5 feet from it with open air between. No interference, no external issues whatsoever. The 5ghz just stopped working. I troubleshooted for about 16 hours, rechecking all variables, researching internet forums...just trying to discover the issue. I updated firmware to latest version (before having issues..worked fine after...for awhile), reset to factory defaults, etc... Nothing worked. You know why nothing worked? BECAUSE THE 5GHZ CRAPPED OUT AND DIED. No user error, people. It just died from traffic use.
After having these issues, I sent for a replacement. I received replacement, updated firmware, entered in ALL my information and setup. BAM! Running sweet again on 5ghz. This time, though, I placed the majority of my devices on the 2ghz, hoping to avoid "melting" the 5ghz "chip". 12 days later, same issue. I woke up this morning only to find the same freaking problem. 5ghz is dying.
To make a long story short, this device is flawed. It's a design flaw with the 5ghz hardware. I believe that it gets overheated by all the large information exchange and just can't dissipate the heat until it just fails. No amount of replacing will help with this issue. This is why I've decided to go with a different brand, hoping that their product is better-designed.
Just a quick note: The rest of the router aside from the 5ghz works flawlessly. The 2ghz I couldn't be happier with. The installation, setup, features, etc.. of this router are great. However, I need the 5ghz to work as well. I didn't pay 100 bucks for a 2ghz router. I paid for a 5ghz router and I want it to work and last.
Setting up the router took me just a few minutes. It has an auto setup menu that asks just a few questions as well as an advanced mode for more tech savvy users.
Only drawback is that the router cannot be hung up on a wall it has to sit on a bookshelf or on a table, but that's no big issue to me. it sits about a foot high.
I'm very happy with my product and would definitely recommend this router.
I have theories as to how this could have happened, but apparently they violate review guidelines... so you'll have to draw your own conclusions as to how a "new" router can be delivered with non-default settings.

On April 5, 2018, I received from Amazon V3 of this router. If you visit the TP-Link site, you will notice there are 5 versions available. I scoured the internet looking for the differences, but there's little information out there. From the little I could find, I believe for the Americas market, V3 is the latest version. V4 and V5 are for Europe (I THINK). If you are in the Americas and get a V4 or V5, even better for you.
The difference between V1, V2 and V3 is updated internals. Performance differences should be minimal between V1-V3.
In any case, I replaced a V1 with a V3 because my V1 finally started to show its age a little. I think updating to the latest firmware messed it up and it looks like you can't downgrade it once you apply the latest, which is a shame.
I owned the V1 for about 3 years and had to restart it maybe three times overall. This router is really good, really stable, and WiFi is very strong. I almost went with an Asus router due to the lack of firmware updates from TP-Link, but honestly, for the price you're paying here, it's hard to beat.
Highly recommended. TP-Link just needs to update the firmware more often.
Donde vivo como muchas partes de Mexico no hay fibra óptica así que tengo contratado Internet por cobre de 20MB, el principal problema era que el modem/router de la compañía telefónica era pésimo por 2 razones.
1.- Al conectarse mas de 3 personas por wifi la red generaba un cuello de botella de tal manera que era imposible ver un vídeo sin que no se parara. para ver netflix solo era posible con cable de red.
2.- No podía asignar o controlar el ancho de banda de los equipos que se conectan a Internet. ( 7 celulares, 4 laptops, 1 nintendo, 1 DVR para cámaras de seguridad, 2 smart TV. 1 pc de escritorio) 16 equipos en total.
Al conectar este router se solucionaron específicamente estos 2 problemas, ya que cuenta con un procesador de (1 GHz, 2 cores) que son suficientes para poder routear la información, pongo imágenes de la prueba donde me llegan los 19 megas de los 20 contratados por wifi, nada mal lo hace bien y punto, ya me es posible asignar anchos de banda por si requiero jugar.
también gane algunas otras cosas que no tenia previstas
1 Poder conectar una unidad usb en la red,
2 Conectarme a la red 5G (teléfonos y laptops compatibles),
3 Desconexiones y al parecer a quitarle la carga al modem/router y dejarlo solo como módem este problema igual se resolvió. (módem de telmex quedo en modo puente o brigde)
4. Mejor cobertura, (aunque mi casa es pequeña y de dos plantas no era un problema la cobertura, pero mejoro sin duda)
Espero que esta reseña te ayude si tienes el mismo problema que yo tenia, pero ojo si tienes problemas de cobertura lo ideal es que te compres un extensor de señal de esos que se conectan a una toma de corriente el cual te va a mejorar la cobertura que ya da tu modem de la compañia y a un costo mas accesible. alrededor de 500 pesos. o si tienes mas varo un sistema wifi mech.
Algo que recomiendo es comprender un poco como funciona las redes wifi, imaginemos que 2 personas se quieren comunicar pero estas están separadas por 50 mts una tiene un megáfono de esos que amplifican la voz la segunda persona no lo tiene por lo tanto la segunda persona si escucha a la primera pero la primera no escuchara a la segunda por lo cual aun con el megáfono existirá un problema de comunicación.
Ya para cerrar no soy un experto en redes y esta reseña esta basada en mi experiencia con el dispositivo pero espero que les pueda ser de utilidad.
Y una recomendación para amazon, manden sus productos en cajas ya que no le pusieron embalaje a mi producto mal!
They weren't. Signal went further (hurrah!) but same old trouble regarding actually connecting to the web. So contacted TP-Link support, and they were brilliant: made suggestions, asked for logs, replied promptly to my email(s) and consulted with engineers.
Turned out the IP addresses (for the router) were (often) wrong, turning from 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.1.1 (unless you used a static IP address)
TP-Link said there must be something on your network that's corrupting the IP addresses. And the penny dropped: a while ago, looking to create a new hotspot in a distant bedroom via powerline connectors, I'd hooked up an old router (supplied by a previous ISP) without re-configuring it.
Once that was sorted (by chucking old router into bin), the problem vanished and now I have a good strong signal all over the house.
So: good kit and brilliant customer service.
We have Plusnet cable broadband and was using the technicolor TG582n modem/router they provided. - and we were getting multiple dropouts!
I did try a wi-fi extender, but that made little difference.
We still use the TG582n router (with the wi-fi turned off) and the Archer C9 pluged into it. Following the idiots setup guide was very easy including changing SSID names and passwords, with the whole process was completed in less than 15mins.
We now run a MacBook Air, 2 iPads, 2iPhones, a smart tv, airplay speakers and a hp printer on the wi-fi and, so far, no dropouts.
Has it increased the speed? We did not expect it too and we don't think it has. But, the wi-fi now extends throughout a large 4 bedroom house and into the garden.
I would recommend this product.
