TP-LINK Archer C7 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router

Dual-band routers seem to be coming out all the time lately, with enough frequency that we find it hard to bat an eye anymore. Even the companies behind them seem to share some of that view, TP-LINK included.

We say this because the makers of wireless routers have reached the point where only very high performance makes their inventions stand out anymore. Case in point, there used to be a time when 750 Mbps was considered a high throughput for a dual-band router, but now we're getting 1.75 Gbps rates. TP-LINK has introduced the AC1750 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router, otherwise known as Archer C7.  Archer C7 happens to communicate at 450 Mbps over the 2.4 GHz band and 1,300 Mbps over the 5 GHz frequency. The 802.11 ac standard allows for such high limits.

The external antennas (three) and the three internal antennas provide omni-directional coverage, while Dual USB ports allow printers and files from removable storage devices to be shared between all electronics linked to the network. Security isn't forgotten either. TP-LINK implemented Guest Network Access.  "Routers are the hub of the digital home and business. As more smart devices enter the scene, consumers need a smart router solution that can deliver speed and range, ease-of-use, solid security, and enable them to access their data wherever they are," said Lewis Wu, country manager for TP-LINK USA.

The three external 5 dBi antennas are detachable and serve the 5 GHz band. The fact that they are separated from the three 2.4 GHz internal ones helps reduce co-channel interference. In addition to all this, the Archer C7 comes with dual multi-functional USB 2.0 ports and four Gigabit LAN ports. The price of $149.99 corresponds to €113 – 149.99 in Europe.
