    Owner Reviews, Ratings, Comments and Criticism
    This is a review of a free product received from TP-LINK for testing and feedback as part of their review program. Good Wi-Fi Range, High Speeds, Supports simultaneous devices. Your home router is a critical digital device. Everything passes through the router, either going between devices, or between devices and Internet. Its úpenny wise and pound foolish to spend loads of money on Internet service and then have performance degraded by a legacy router. Get the best router you can afford. Besides, owning a router like the state-of-the-art TP-LINK Archer C5400 is less expensive, in the long run, than renting a less capable legacy model from your cable or FIOS company. Ive tested many routers and, whether youre a beginner or an expert, I believe youll be quite pleased with the TP-LINK Archer C5400. The C5400 router can be set up and configured using a web browser interface (via a desktop, laptop, tablet, or smartphone). The Quick Setup menu gets beginners connected to the Internet in 10 minutes. On the Advanced menu, experts will find tons of configuration settings to fiddle with and fine-tune. TP-LINK developed a free, Android and iOS, Tether App which I also frequently use and find quite handy. The C5400 has a dual-core 1.4GHz CPU, three co-processors, and 512 MB of RAM. Simultaneous connections can be maintained without buffering or interruption. The C5400 uses the same Broadcom chipset as competitors. However, TP-LINK somehow manages to sell this router for a lot less. A C5400 will future-proof your router requirements so you wont need an upgrade for a long time. The black matte finish of the C5400 means that no fingerprints are ever visible. Whats visually distinctive is the 8 folding antenna design. Antennas can fold flat when they are not being used. This is an 802.11ac (backward compatible) triple band router, with one 2.4GHz and two 5.0GHz Wireless Radios. 3 different SSIDs are supported. With 4-Stream technology, 4x4 MU-MIMO, and NitroQam (25% boost), the theoretical total speed at 2.4GHz is 1,000Mbps; each of the two 5.0GHz channels is 2,167Mbps. Add all these numbers up and youll get the routers 5400 designation. The C5400 is the best and fastest router Ive ever tested. With this router and my Time Warner Cable 200/20 subscription, Ookla speedtest results, measured on an 802.11ac Windows-10 ThinkPad laptop, are routinely 235+/24Mbps. These are conservative benchmark values because there was lots of simultaneous activity on the LAN by other devices. On the front of the router are 9 blue LED indicators, a Wireless On/Off button, WPS button, and an LED On/Off button. On the back are the WAN and four LAN Gigabit ports, USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports, Power On/Off button, a recessed Reset, and the Power input. Parental Controls and a Guest Network can be set up on the Advanced user interface menu. You get Whitelist and Blacklist options. The recommended default Wi-Fi security setting is WPA/WPA2-Personal encryption. The C5400 can automatically select the best Channel and Channel Width to use, or you can manually make the choice yourself. A Smart Connect option can help devices run faster, by automatically selecting which devices are assigned to which band, thereby balancing the load. Smart Connect is Off by default. My router is placed on a high bookcase. I like that the C5400 routers indicator lights and controls are on the front panel, which is very convenient. I well remember that my previous router had indicator lights on top. It was a royal pain to stand on a step stool whenever I wanted to see them. We live in a large old two-story brick detached home with plaster wire-lathe walls. Also Im in a densely populated urban area with much neighboring Wi-Fi interference. My need for a good router is essential in such a challenging environment. The C5400 gives me the excellent Wi-Fi coverage and throughput that I require. In addition to the C5400 router the following gear is connected: TP-LINK TC-7620 cable modem, SG1008D Switch, RE590T Range Extender, NC200 and NC250 Security Cameras, HS100 and HS110 Smart Plugs, HS200 Smart Switches, Roku Smart TVs, Android Tablets, Smartphones, VoIP telephones, a lab with new 802.11ac ThinkPad laptops, and PC desktops. In my Smart Home we have Smart Plugs, Smart Switches, and Security Cameras scattered throughout rooms which are far away from the router. The RE590T boosts Wi-Fi for use in my garden. Most of these devices are always connected and active. The router reports 4 Wired Clients and 20-to-25 Wireless Clients. Thankfully, my C5400 router is working flawlessly with all this equipment. Ive never noticed any buffering and have not had disconnects. What may help is that the TP-LINK products are well designed and very compatible with one another.
