Powerful Wi-Fi for Non-Stop 4K Streaming and Gaming
Unleash non-stop entertainment and gaming with the Archer C2300, which delivers powerful Wi-Fi up to 2300 Mbps. The router is engineered for top-notch performance with a leading-edge 1.8 GHz dual-core 64-bit CPU and powerful XStream processing architecture. Three external antennas with beamforming and RangeBoost let the router send far-reaching Wi-Fi across your home. MU-MIMO lets the router talk to several phones, laptops and other devices at once for less waiting and faster Wi-Fi performance.
64-Bit CPU and XStream Processing for Smoother Performance
With XStream processor architecture, the Archer C2300 dedicates one processor to each of its Wi-Fi bands. These processors handle Wi-Fi traffic, freeing the router’s powerful 1.8 GHz dual-core 64-bit CPU to take care of everything else.
All this extra brainpower keeps your Wi-Fi running smoothly so everyone in your home can enjoy what they love most, whether that’s watching Netflix, gaming online, streaming music—or all of the above.
MU-MIMO and Smart Connect for Better Connections
MU-MIMO lets the Archer C2300 talk to several devices at once, and Smart Connect automatically places each device on the best available Wi-Fi band.
With both working together, everyone can hop online at the same time without having to wait, and each device can always get the best connection.
RangeBoost and Beamforming for Far-Reaching Wi-Fi
RangeBoost amplifies the router’s ability to detect and receive Wi-Fi signal from devices that are located farther away. Beamforming locates Wi-Fi devices and focuses the router’s wireless signal toward them instead of sending it in all directions at once.
With both, the Archer C2300 lets you stream, game and enjoy what you love anywhere in your home, from your favorite spot on the couch to the comfort of your bed.
Airtime Fairness for More Efficient Wi-Fi Distribution
We’ve all encountered slowdowns when multiple devices are trying to connect to Wi-Fi at the same time. Phones, laptops and tablets using older Wi-Fi standards can slow down your home network.
With Airtime Fairness, the Archer C2300 equally divides attention between newer and older devices improving overall Wi-Fi performance and reliability without letting older devices limit your network.
Link Aggregation for Doubled Wired Speeds
Team two of the four Gigabit LAN ports for a single device for a faster wired connection with a combined speed of up to 2 Gbps.
Double the connection speeds to a Network Attached Storage (NAS) for even faster streaming and data backups than ever.
Built-In VPN Server
When using public Wi-Fi, establish an encrypted VPN connection to your router to enjoy safe and secure internet access.
Browse the web in a coffee shop, download important files while waiting for your flight at the airport, and access private router-connected hard drives at home from afar without worry or paid subscriptions.
Update and Control from Your Phone
Set up and manage your Wi-Fi through the TP-Link Tether app, available for both Android and iOS. Tether’s simple layout lets you quickly access Wi-Fi settings such as guest privileges, scheduling, the latest firmware updates, and device management right from your smartphone.

Top Customer Reviews
I have purchased a number of routers over the years as the technology and performance improves, and the number of devices my family uses has increased. Over the past few years, I had migrated to the more expensive ($300+) routers in the hopes of greater performance. Right before this, I had an Asus RT-AC5300, a beast of a router that exceeded $400 when I bought it. But what I found was that as the price point goes up, the performance does not, and the reliability goes down. These expensive routers tend to be buggy and drop connections; they simply have too many features and are way too complex, all to provide functionalities that no one uses, or that none of your connected devices support anyway. The ASUS got so bad it was rebooting itself every few hours. The days of the rock-solid Linksys WRT54G seemed long gone... So I returned the ASUS RT-AC5300, gave my WRT1900ACS to a friend, and bought an Archer C7 (v2).
After two weeks of testing it, I have four words: it just works -- period. The signal is strong and punches through the lathe-and-plaster walls of my nearly 100 year old house. Its signal is considerably stronger than the WRT1900ACS that I had (which cost almost three times what this one did), and rivaled the signal strength of the $400 ASUS. It doesn't drop connections, doesn't reboot itself, and delivers a strong and steady stream of data to all devices, wired and wireless.
Only one word of warning; you need to make sure the Archer C7 that you purchase is NOT a first version. Everyone on the web has reported that TP-LINK badly botched the V1, especially for Macintosh/Apple devices (which is most of my house); most of those should be out of circulation or in landfills by now. The one I bought from Amazon was a V2, and it works perfectly with all of my Apple and non-Apple devices.
Set up is a breeze. Having the router for almost 1 month I have not had to reset at all. Initially my older laptop connected but could not get an internet signal. I had to make an adjustment to the laptop's wireless card setting. So if anyone is having a connection problem try the following -
1. Got Network & Internet Settings
2. Go to Change Adapter Options
3. Find your wireless connection (can be wired connection too) and right click on it
4. Click on Properties
5. Look for Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) and single click on it, this will highlight it and allow access to the Properties tab
6. Click Properties tab and make sure both Obtain an IP address automatically & Obtain DNS server address automatically are selected.
My DNS server address property was not selected and was set to a particular address. Once I changed it to the automatically selection I was immediately connected and have not been disconnected. The C9 is the best router I have owned followed by the C7.
Signal strength is now *much* higher on the 2nd floor of our home, in the most remote room, than with my tri-antenna TrendNET router, even with an added dish reflector behind it (an impromptu measure that had helped the TrendNET's signal). The pronounced signal improvement with the TP-LINK Archer C9 is probably due to its beam-forming technology and is the primary reason I selected the C9. Before doing so I'd tried several models of range extenders, without luck. If you have marginal signal in some parts of your home or office, the TP-LINK Archer C9 may be the answer for you. And, as a bonus, it's a very attractive piece of gear.
