O verall, very happy

Overall, we are very happy with this router. It is simple to set up and has great features. The only reason I do not give it 5 stars is the fact that several devices in our home cannot seem to locate the 5G signal (but can locate the 2.4G signal). Upon calling Tech Support, I was told that some devices do not have the capability to access the 5G since they are older and have an older wifi card in them. Strange, because these same devices can detect our neighbour's 5G network with no issues. It will likely take a few more days playing and another call to a different tech to assist us. If that issue is resolved - 5 stars all the way.

TP link AC1750 WIFI

Excellent, my old router was 12 years old, compared to this new router, I am living the dream, strong reception, easy to link, a much better signal.

  • from Markham, ON

No complaints

I've had this for about four months now. No complaints on speed or signal. Unlike my old router, signal travels from the second floor all the way into the basement with no issues.

  • from Markham

Very good so far

I've had this for a few months to replace my old router. It took only ten minutes to get it out of the box and have it up and running. No dropped signals and much faster than my old one.

Not working

I am into my 3rd hour of trying to connect this router. I have been with support also 3 times and am currently on hold waiting for support the 4th time. Support line is in China so it's pretty bad English you have to deal with. This is router hell.I can plug my old router back in and it connects immediately.

  • from Ottawa, ON

Archer C8 pretty good

The only disappointment with the router is that the USB memory cannot be used for backups or general storage. It is strictly a DLNA server for pictures/videos as far as I can tell.

  • from Toronto, ON

Great Management Features! - Parental Control

I needed a more advance router for home, that gives priorities to devices and creates schedules for other devices. With this router I am able to use TP-LINKS cellphone application and have control of my network. and it is very easy!! Performance wise, all perfectly good

  • from Burlington, ON

Excellent Router

What I expected from TP-Link, excellent product. Easy to set up, great features and great reception.

  • from Edmonton, Ab

This is what all products should be like.

Works out of the box. Has tech for devices I haven't bought yet but will. No registration warranty?? Just send in broken device and your taken care of? What is this, 1950?
