Product Overview
Main Features
  • Wireless router
  • 4-port switch
  • GigE
  • 802.11a/b/g/n/ac
  • Dual Band
The Archer C5 operates over both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands, ensuring amazing wireless performance. Simultaneous dual band offers the flexibility of two dedicated networks - with multiple times the bandwidth for your needs. Simple tasks like sending e-mails or web browsing can be handled by the 2.4 GHz band while bandwidth-intensive tasks like online gaming or high-definition video streaming can be processed by the 5 GHz band - all at the same time. And with 3 external antennas serving the 5 GHz band and 3 internal antennas serving the 2.4 GHz band combined with higher quality antenna technology, you can maintain high speeds across greater distances. This provides you with incredible wireless coverage and reliability from anywhere in your large home or office.

Product Reviews
TP-LINK Archer C5 - wireless router - 802.11a/b/g/n/ac - desktop is rated 2.6 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I will recommend this product to my friends I got my router two years ago and it's been working great
Date published: 2017-06-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding value and performance I have gone through multiple routers to get a clean signal in my over saturated wifi neighborhood. The wifi scanner tool looks like a tropical jungle. The TPLink AC1200 was my 5th attempt to get a proper signal and it has worked absolute wonders. I have enjoyed generally reliable and consistent performance and am supremely relieved to find a reasonably priced router that delivers results.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unreliable connection Bought it from Fry's not long time ago. Initially it was worked good, but after couple month of using, wireless connection begins interrupting continuously. I called internet service provider technician to check their cables and everything was perfect from their side. When I connect my PC with wire to my modem directly everything works perfect but after connecting wireless through tp-link router I always have a problem with internet connection. I am losing my connection more often than I have it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from TERRIBLE Cuts in and out. Does not connect to cloud for off line viewing. SUCKS

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Has been a good device for the price Not sure why this has such bad reviews - I've had mine for the better part of a year and it has been working well. Only issue I ever had was due to user error on my part. Anyway, wanted to throw in some more slightly positive input, as I've not experienced any issues described in other reviews.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Problems from day 1 If my DVD player is 3 inches from the router it connects to the internet just fine but if I take it in the other room it will connect to the Wi-Fi but will not connect to the internet.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Didn't last a full year before it ran into problems This worked for less than a year before encountering severe unreliability especially on 2.4 GHz but also on 5 GHz. Upgrading the firmware did not fix it. There are no nearby wireless networks on the same channel and I'm not in a crowded urban environment. There were no new sources of interference introduced between when this was working and when it started to have issues and even unplugging/turning off things like wireless phones nearby did not help. ICMP pings to the router itself drop out when the issues crop up proving that this isn't an issue with the Internet connection itself.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Under-powered for urban environments This router is unable to provide consistent signal throughout a tiny townhome. Firmware and configurations, while easy to use, hide many expected settings and options from the user. Furthermore the chipset is not supported by popular open source distributions like OpenWRT or DDWRT. Do not buy.
