What customers say about "Key Specs"
TP-LINK Archer AC2300 MU-MIMO Dual Band Gigabit Gaming Router (USB 3.0, Parent Control, VPN)
  • 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.
  • My environment: Old house (1924) with old plaster wall, normally challenging for WiFi. Dual band 2.4/5.0 helps a lot.
  • This is the best route I have used for a home setting. It has a lot of great features. It works just how you would expected. Excellent speed!
  • It was super easy to setup and super fast download speeds.
  • WOW! Fast speeds, and great whole-house coverage! Nice features included, too.
TP-LINK Archer C3150 MU-MIMO Dual Band Wireless Gigabit Cable Gaming Router
  • I use this as a booster for my sky router. Somehow it increases my download speeds by 20%. Great product!
  • I now see download speeds of 19.6 MB/s. You can purchase a game and be playing it in minutes!
  • Having a 200Mb Virgin Broadband connection we have jumped from a maximum WiFi speed of 25Mb to the full 200Mb (depending on how many devices are being used.
  • Very good wireless speeds that will allow you to comfortably make the most of your internet speed and stream data from network-attached-storage at speed.
  • This is the most powerful Gigabit Router I have ever used (and I have used plenty).

What customers say about "Network"
TP-LINK Archer AC2300 MU-MIMO Dual Band Gigabit Gaming Router (USB 3.0, Parent Control, VPN)
  • Easy to configure. Great range. Great signal that is consistent. Nice features and form factor. Had it a week with zero complaints.
  • At some times we have 15 active connections in our 3 story house and no complaints from anyone (including teenagers) yet.
  • 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.
  • No WiFi repeaters or bridges needed. Good coverage throughout house. Very happy with AC2300, Definitely Recommend!
  • The coverage is incredible. I can go anywhere in my house and outside and have a strong signal.
TP-LINK Archer C3150 MU-MIMO Dual Band Wireless Gigabit Cable Gaming Router
  • I love the ability to prioritise certain devices using QoS, like my WiFi CCTV camera or laptop.
  • Range is very good - I get a strong signal through my 3-bed house.
  • Set up was easy - just connected an Ethernet cable from the Virgin Superhub to the WAN port on the Archer and then put the Virgin hub into Modem mode from its settings menu.
  • 4 antennas provide a good signal, completely enough for my house!
  • Signal strength better than my virgin supehub 3 but not as good as I'd hoped.

  • A really cool thing is it can run security scans all connected devices to see if protection is up to date.
  • Perfectly simple installation, with no issues. lots of internal feature to make as secure as possible. Great range too.
  • I love its security and its management software. It just makes it so easy. Highly recommended.
  • All the features, including the parental control, are working fine!
  • The security controls in the TP-Link router interface are pretty basic, not very customizable.

  • After a few simple security setting changes, like changing the default password, and naming your network, it just seems to do its stuff. Good performance!
  • That, combined with the advanced features of the Archer C3150 like parental controls made it an attractive package given the number and range of wired and wireless devices in our home.
  • Great router. no problems so far. Also set up parental controls which i can control through app on iphone.
  • If you are more tech savvy then have a look at the VPN features to allow access IN to your network from outside.
  • The router has a good set of encryption, this is great for my work!
