Maximum wireless transmission rates are the physical rates derived from IEEE Standard 802.11 specifications. Range and coverage specifications along with the number of connected devices were defined according to test results under normal usage conditions. Actual wireless transmission rate, wireless coverage, and number of connected devices are not guaranteed, and will vary as a result of 1) environmental factors, including building materials, physical objects and obstacles, 2) network conditions, including local interference, volume and density of traffic, product location, network complexity, and network overhead and 3) client limitations, including rated performance, location, connection quality, and client condition. MU-MIMO capability requires both the router and client devices to support MU-MIMO.

*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.

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
Ha pasado casi un año desde que adquirí el producto. El tiempo no ha hecho que el desempeño de este router se vea afectado. Hay 23 equipos conectados a él todo el tiempo y una impresora, dispositivos cableados e inalámbricos (pantallas inteligentes, celulares, relojes inteligentes, computadoras). El antivirus integrado en el router lleva un registro de todos los eventos que ha bloqueado, es sorprendente revisar esta información y darse cuenta de cuantas veces ha intervenido. Hay implementado un control parental en los dispositivos de los menores que viven en casa, me impresiona lo preciso que es y que es posible administrar el contenido al que tienen acceso y más importante el tiempo que tienen permitido usar internet. Recientemente noté que la señal inalámbrica llega unos metros fuera de casa. Lo recomiendo ampliamente para quienes buscan aprovechar al máximo su velocidad contratada (mientras sean más de 50 ~ 80 Mbps, en caso contrario recomendaría otro dispositivo menos caro), tener protegido el acceso a la red si hay pequeños en su hogar, personas que tengan demasiados dispositivos conectados a internet, gamers evidentemente y quienes busquen un dispositivo que no deban cambiar al menos en un par de años.
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.
Tech support is an ABSOLUTE JOKE! Call the 800 number and sit on hold for literally over an hour. Hold message says "for faster service please go to our live chat". Ok, go to live chat and 35 minutes later finally am "chatting" with agent Joselito who in their infinite wisdom asked me if it was plugged in (after I had clearly outlined the troubleshooting steps above) and then got me to press the wifi button. Asked if the "wifi light" is on (there is no wifi light on this unit, just a single multicolor LED indicator). Well, after that ultra intelligent exchange (which took at least 3 minutes between responses) Joselito was stumped and asked me to call the 800 number again. Now I'm on hold, again, listening to a recorded message telling me to contact the chat support on their website for faster service. I can't believe I wasted $350 on this pile of crap just to get the run around. Will NEVER EVER BUY ANY TP LINK PRODUCT AGAIN!!
Perfect for security cameras! I wanted to extend the internet access to the outdoors and outbuildings without having to setup an access point or bridge. I already have an access point system setup that will be removed now.
I was slightly taken aback when the box arrived because it was huge! Despite reading the description which notes the size of the unit it just wasn't registering how big this baby is. I mounted it centrally in the house, which has a fairly open floor plan and mounted it sideways on the wall so all the antennas face south, which is the direction the signal is needed the most. Great feature that this doesn't need to be set up standing upright and has built in wall mounts for hanging.
I really am shocked at the signal reach. The walls, roof and all framing on this house inside & out are 2x6 cedar with stucco exterior so there's plenty of metal mesh in the walls to skew it. Although only one wall to go through in 3 directions due to the open floor plan of the home, to the west it has to go through 3 walls before hitting the outdoors and in that direction standing a good 300 feet away outside, I have darn near full signal on the ipad. In the furthest corner of the property I have 2 bars signal on the iPad so I think that is pretty incredible!
Setup was incredibly easy, I've probably set up 8-10 name brand routers over the years with home business network serving many devices as well as access points, bridges etc. This was by far the easiest, shockingly so! I followed the quickstart guide for setting up wired connection to my desktop and then enabled the wireless. I also downloaded the app prior to install but didn't end up using it for setup. It basically worked out of the box and without any changes by me using default settings. There are lots of settings to play with and the interface makes it easy to do that.
The management interface is quite a treat in comparison to those offered by Dlink, Cisco, Netgear - this is modern, clean, intuitive and easy to read & understand. I love it! I am not one to rely on default settings for management I prefer to login to it via IP address and manage from there and due to the network usage here I often need to tweak, change or add to the network so this is a really nice feature for those who do the same.
I haven't had the need to use the app to manage it yet, perhaps in future.
I was and still am slightly confused by the login procedure, my confusion comes from the login required for tp-link account and then the login on the router itself. I just haven't had time to sit and read the manual in full yet. The only other drawback is the size - it's not only big but kind of ugly and I can see it plainly where it is hung but I'll put up with it for the service it gives! Highly Recommend.
