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 was upgrading from a WNDR3400. On the old wifi router, I was getting 30 mbps max. And 15 mbps on one floor above router. I was getting 240 mbps from wired modem. I was very annoyed at how slow my wifi was compared to my wired speed.
On the AC2300 router, I was getting 100 mbps on 2.4 ghz and 240 mbps on 5.0 ghz wifi. I even went one floor and even two floors above the router, and was still getting similar speeds.
You may be debating between getting this router, and the Archer C7 router, because its much cheaper and has such great reviews. However, look at the specs, and you see that the AC2300 has a 1.8 ghz dual core cpu, while the Archer C7 has a single core cpu. This makes a huge difference in performance (note that the power brick is pretty big on this router because of it's processing power). In addition, the C7 is two years older than the AC2300. Technology moves fast in two years, so why buy old tech, when the new tech will last many years forward in the future.
Future tests to do and will update review:
1. I sometimes have 20+ devices connected to router, and I will see if the router can handle all the traffic.
2. Going to test USB NAS speed, and usefulness of the proprietary apps included.
3. Long term reliability and firmware updates.
Tests were done on Dell XPS 9560 with Killer 1535 NIC.
I purchased the TP-Link AC2300 hoping to migrate some of my devices to 5 GHz channels, ensure the continued responsiveness of my network, and eliminate the occasional disconnect of my WiFi printer and the intermittent buffering of my streaming devices. Finally, I was hoping to get a stronger signal to my upstairs bedroom.
The TP-Link AC2300 was easy to set up and provides the information I need to monitor the network. In addition, after two weeks of operation, it is running flawlessly, provides a strong signal to all of the rooms in my 2,400 sq. ft. colonial, and is meeting my performance expectations.
So far, I'm a very happy TP-Link customer.
In most ways, I liked this router. It has a lot of good features and a strong WiFi signal. Unfortunately the IPv6 connectivity is not good. It often wouldn't connect in IPv6 and frequently disconnected. This is not a technical forum, so I won't go into detail with the symptoms, but I believe that the DHCPv6 client is not functioning properly. This might be a problem with DHCPv6 itself, or with the firewall.
I purchased this router to replace a 5 year old Linksys that handled IPv6 just fine. After returning the C2300, I bought a Netgear Nighthawk. Again, no problems with IPv6.
It's possible that this will be fixed with a future firmware update, but I wouldn't count on it.
Of course, most people could simply leave IPv6 turned off and not miss it for the time being. But, arguably, you could need to replace the router prematurely over this issue.
I upgraded my internet service to 300mbps but was barley getting 50mbps(wifi).
The Internet service provider told me it had to do with my apartments internal wiring after I bought a new nice modem.
I had a decent router ($300 in 2008 brand new) that is supposed to push 300mbps but I decided to replace it. I did alot of research and went with this.
I now get around 200 mbps if Im next to my router or even in my bedroom!
I am not really into getting crazy with settings I just like to make my own WiFi name and password and the set up for this is easy.
If you want to customize more settings you'll have to read a different review but if you want a great router look no further.
