    This review was written the same day that I received my Archer C80 router, after initial setup was completed. I’ll be comparing it the 5-year-old Netgear D6400 DSL Modem/Router combo that it replaced. I’m a long-time IT type, and I’ve been configuring my own routers for about 15 years. This is my first TP-Link router, previously having used (in no particular order) Linksys, D-Link, ASUS, and Netgear devices. — There were a few bumps along the way as I configured my new router, some new features that I haven’t had before, and other features that are present to a limited extent, but sorely lacking. — The first thing I did after opening the box and connecting the new router to my network was to create an admin password and attempt to update the firmware. I’d already downloaded the latest firmware in anticipation of the unit’s arrival, but the first attempt to update only logged me out of the administration interface. The second attempt immediately after logging in again went as expected. I didn’t have any hiccups like this on the Netgear until it started to die after years of use. Point to Netgear. — The WiFi signal is significantly stronger than on my old router, on both bands, tested with inSSIDer. I’m impressed by the fact that I have significantly stronger 2.4 GHz signal with the new router despite a crowded neighborhood with a neighbor whose router tended to stomp on my old router’s 2.4 GHz signal and follow it around as it tried to find a clean channel. Despite the competition for bandwidth, I have better 2.4 GHz signal from the new router than I do on the 5 GHz band, which isn’t crowded in my neighborhood. Point for TP-Link. — Port forwarding was easier to set up on this router than on the 5-year-old Netgear D6400 that it replaced. This unit has a toggle-switch on the port forwarding page to enable or disable each item on the forwarding list; something very handy when there are ports that I only use intermittently. Compare to the Netgear unit that couldn’t disable a rule without deleting it, resulting in leaving the port open and forwarding it to an unused internal IP address in order to effectively accomplish the same thing. Point for TP-Link. — Site blocking is awkward. On the old Netgear, I could block any IP address or URL across the board for all of my connected systems. On this new TP-Link, however, I have to use their Parental Controls interface. Each rule can only hold eight MAC addresses, so if I want to block a site from more systems than that, I have to create multiple rules (“users”) and copy the sites I want blocked by hand to a new “user” for each set of eight MAC addresses. This can be cumbersome when you have a list of domains that you want to block (be it malware-related, or using the feature as intended to keep kids away from porn). This is further complicated by the fact that I can’t add a MAC address to a Parental Control rule if that device hasn’t connected to the router yet. As a result, a system will have unlimited access to the internet when it first connects, even if I don’t want that to happen. Having a list of all MAC address for devices I own, I’m quite ready to configure security for a device before I first connect with it, but TP-Link won’t let me do this. Even more frustrating, since their MAC whitelist security feature DOES let me add MACs for network adapters that haven’t connected yet. Point for Netgear. — Speaking of the MAC whitelist, the first time I tried to configure it, I couldn’t add the computer I was on because it still thought it was in BLACKlist mode despite me toggling the control. I added the WiFi from the same computer I was connecting from over the wire, and went to connect that way, but when I logged back into the router after I THOUGHT I’d changed it to WHITElist mode, it was still reporting BLACKlist, letting a blacklisted device connect for administration. I was then able to switch to whitelist mode and add the wired network I was connecting from. It now APPEARS to be configured properly, but the fact that it reported blacklist and still let a listed device connect is disturbing. I never had problems with improper whitelist/blacklist performance on any other router. MAJOR point Netgear, and a full star off just for this security issue. — A feature I haven’t had before that TP-Link introduced me to is ARP binding, which ties an IP address (logical network address) to a MAC address (physical network adapter address). I tested this by configuring the wired network card on one of my systems with a MAC address cloned from another device I own while attempting to keep it’s usual IP address. It reported an IP address conflict, even after rebooting, which will normally resolve such a conflict and was thus prevented from accessing the network. Looks like the feature works. Point to TP-Link. Looks like I’ll have to use this to help compensate for the wonky MAC address filtering. — Another feature new to me is the ability to limit local router administration to specific systems, again by MAC address. I tested it, , and it works as expected. Unauthorized systems get no response from the router’s IP address. Point to TP-Link. — The Archer C80 has the ability to manually download the router log. OTOH, the Netgear D6400 had the ability to configure automatic emails of the log every time it got full. Big point to Netgear. — I also noticed a new feature that hadn’t been in TP-Link’s router admin simulation or user guide called CWMP. This relates to letting ISPs take control of router administration. While this is turned off by default, there are still visible options that remain turned on but make you jump through undocumented hoops to disable them. Unlike other configuration pages which remove options related to a disabled feature, CWMP leaves an option called “Inform” enabled after CWMP is disabled, and you can’t disable “Inform” without entering an ‘ACS URL’. Simply entering “https://” is enough, but you have to dig online to discover this. After researching this on the manufacturer’s forums, I find that their firmware development and tech support departments are NOT communicating with each other. Furthermore tech support has been telling people that this option would be removed (or made less difficult to confirm that its disabled), but no actual changes made it into the latest firmware posted after the discussion. Major loss of faith, and one full star deducted for this point alone. — The Archer C80 doesn’t require me to download an app to manage the device. Virtually every other manufacturer’s current devices do have such a requirement. Point to TP-Link. — I’ve seen reports that Netgear is now insisting that in order to get a warranty replace on a router, users now have to pay for premium telephone support that costs almost as much as a new router. TP-Link, OTOH, doesn’t require extre fees, even if their tech support appears to be rather lacking in recent forum posts. Point to TP-Link. — So my new router is configured and installed; I’m using it as I write this. Its a close race between the new and the old router. I have mixed feelings because of inconsistencies in the TP-Link’s user interface, and while their tech support doesn’t appear to be sterling, it does appear to be better than what I seen reported about virtually every other major router manufacturer lately. The jury’s still out on this one.Read more

    My ISP is CenturyLink Fiber, and as such, I needed a router that would perform as close to the 940Mbps rated speed that it provides (actual speeds based on my signal strength are closer to 850Mbps). While CenturyLink does provide a router of their own, I wasn’t impressed with the bulky, ostrich egg look of the thing and wanted something a bit more unobtrusive, as the only function of the router is to provide VLAN tagging and PPPoE login credentials, and to remain solid in those roles alone (no Wifi functionality enabled). This is because the router plugs directly into my Nest Wifi setup that handles all the Wifi in the home, as well as some wired connections through a basic switch for better transfer speeds or necessity (Obi200 for Google Voice, for instance). Now, I’ve only been using this router for a couple of weeks, so it’s really too soon to know how reliable this router is. The router I replaced, an Asus RT-AC66U (Version B1, basically an AC68U), was pretty good, but in around 3-4 weeks, it would tend to flake out and my Nest Points would all get disconnected, requiring me to power cycle both the routers. The AC66U would take around five minutes to reboot, even with Wifi turned off, which was a pain, and having to do it that often was just too much. It’s a lot to expect a router to never need a reset, but anything more than three months is a dealbreaker for me. Anyway, this is probably more information than you really needed. Bottom line is this thing boots fast, has solid hardware and firmware (at least for my very simple needs) and the price is pretty much unbeatable, especially if other reviews are to be believed and this thing remains solid for months at a time. I ran a speed test through Google Home just to see how the speeds are holding up and they’re still right around the 800Mbps range both up and down. This is important, by the way, as I’ve found that routers that can’t match speeds both up and down for fiber are either faulty or not configured properly in their firmware and will eventually glitch out. I’ve seen this in a number of devices over the years. So, given what I’ve seen so far, this is a great router. It’s easily concealed, small, powerful and apparently reliable, all at a very affordable price.Read more

    I got this to replace an older mesh system. I live in a 3,600sqft house and wanted an all-encompassing situation. I placed it second floor, pretty much dead center. It was easy to set-up with the tether app, and I’m very happy with the speeds. Wired I am maxing out my 800Mbps connection, hitting over 850Mbps on 3 different speed testing sites. Wifi gets me between 100Mbps-270Mbps on 5g through the house and over 60Mbps through the entire house. That is a huge drop for the 2.4ghz which is somewhat normal, but the important thing is that it provides a strong connection for general usage through a huge house. To be clear, 60Mbps will satisfy anyone that isn’t doing significant downloading. You’re going to stream any 4k content for instance. I’ve attached two speed test pictures. One is from the first floor corner of the house, 21ms with over 70Mbps download and 15Mbps upload (near max on the upload). The second is wired which shows over 800Mbps down and over 17Mbps (max on this).Read more

    Hace unos días estaba buscando un WiFi que me brindara mayor velocidad y cobertura de señal porque el módem de mi provedor de servicio me daba velocidades máximas de 40 mbps en wireless cuando tengo contratado un internet de 90 mbps, esto era desaprovechar mi internet. Busque y una de las opciones era este Archer C80 vs el Archer AX10, realmente estaba indeciso porque las versiones de AX tienen ya WiFi 6 vs el C80 que aún es WiFi 5, sin embargo me incliné por el Archer C80 porque el Archer C80 tiene 3X3 MU-MIMO vs el Archer AX10 que trabaja OFDMA pero únicamente para dispositivos que manejen WiFi 6 que en mi caso no es alguno, también la banda de 2.4 GHz es mucho mejor en el C80 llegando hasta 600 Mbps vs el AX que llega hasta 300 Mbps. La cobertura mejoró en mi casa que es de 2 pisos y en la planta alta tiene 4 cuartos. A continuación les dejo las ventajas del C80 ——VENTAJAS——– – 3×3 MU-MIMO en el C80 que permite trabajar de manera simultánea en tu WiFi a diferencia de los AX que solo permiten trabajar de manera simultánea con dispositivos que manejen WiFi 6 con OFDMA y MU-MIMO – En la última actualización del firmware agrega la seguridad WPA3 – Puedes utilizar este WiFi como repetidor con otro Wifi (compatible con WDS) ya que maneja WDS – Actualmente el protocolo WiFi 6 está siendo definido por lo que yo preferí estabilidad con un protocolo ya establecido como el WiFi 5 – El C80 soporta mayor ancho de banda que el AX, llegando el C80 a velocidades de 1300 Mbps (5 GHz) vs el AX que llega a 1201 Mbps (5 GHz) – La cobertura mejoró mucho en mi casa aún con 2 muros de 8 cm cada uno la señal y la velocidad se mantiene estable. – Precio más económico qué el AX —– Desventajas ——- – No cuenta con WiFi 6 y no soportará WiFi 6 – El C80 tiene 1.2 GHz de CPU vs 1.5 GHz Triple-Core de CPU que tiene el AX (es más lento el del C80 pero imperceptible) Conclusión: En temas de practicidad el WiFi 6 vs el 5 será casi imperceptible, pero el Wifi 6 puede tener algunas mejoras como ahorro de energia, aunque para tener las ventajas del Wifi 6 necesitas también dispositivos que manejen WiFi 6. El precio del C80 es menor que el AX. Si buscas un wifi que en más de 10 años no tengas que cambiarlo y soporte Wifi 6 te recomiendo inclines por el AX si buscas un Wifi que trabaje bien con buena cobertura y con protocolo que la mayoria usa actualmente, te recomiendo el C80.Read more

    En casa contamos con Totalplay y tenemos 160 mb contratados, pero el modem que incluye no da ni cerca esa cantidad de valocidad en WiFi (se quedaba en 40s cuando mucho) y no soporta la banda de 5GHz. Este lo instale y en menos de 5 minutos estaba ya navegando literalmente (apague primeramente el WiFi del modem de TP). Ahora si, entrega la velocidad completa en pruebas de speedtest. Es super facil de configurar y me encanto que la app de Tethering te deja configurarlo y monitorearlo incluso fuera de casa. De momento todo bien y se actualizo a la ultima version de firmware que le permite configurar las redes con WPA3. Seguire haciendo pruebas con varios dispositivos conectados para ver como se comporta.Read more

    I’ve bought and set up a few of these for my extended family. I’m the family tech support, unfortunately. One thing I noticed is when you upgrade to the latest Firmware version this unit will lose it’s configuration and you’ll have to set it up again. Highly recommend this router. It’s leaps and bounds better than others I’ve used in the past. Wifi range is great, speeds are great, and with the new Firmware, supports WPA3 wireless encryption which I’ve yet to find on similarly priced routers.Read more

    Took mere minutes to set it up, and not many more to finish the online configuration, following included instructions. Half an hour after I got the packaging open, the router was successfully communicating with three PCs, two printers, two phones, and a tablet. Good price; excellent product. Oh, and it comes with a three-foot CAT5e RJ45 cable. I am a very happy camper. I recommend using the same name for the two bands (2.4 GHz & 5 GHz) and the same password for them, and set the “Smart” option that lets each device using the wi-fi choose the faster band. The PC downstairs locked onto the 2.4, and the phones and tablet took the 5. Yessir!Read more
