As I write this review we are less than one week into service with a new cable ISP (100 Mbps). I've actually had the AC1900 for about a year, but haven't been able to give it a fair review as our old isp was incredibly slow (5Mbps).

What I loved about connecting the AC1900 to our new service was that it was 100% seamless; I just powered everything down, put the TP-Link in-line, powered up, and in a few minutes we had a strong wi-fi signal throughout our house - brick, two floors with a roughly 2000 sq. ft. footprint. With the router on the main floor in a room in the middle of the house, we're getting a strong signal throughout the upstairs and the basement. We run two smart phones, two iPads, and two Apple TV systems. We use the 5GHz 1300Mbps band to stream videos and the signal and connection is exceptionally strong. I had to download a 2.5 gb firmware update for my phone the day after we got our new isp and had the router in place. Using Wi-Fi, transmitting from the main floor to the basement, the download took less than 5 minutes. We do not game, so no clue how this device would work for gaming.

This is the first stand-alone wireless router we've ever owned, so I do not know how it compares to other brands, but so far I am beyond satisfied with how well it works for us!

Used this router for home use when both modes of wireless began to experience massive latency issues - ping rates of more than 100ms on each frequency and also failed bandwidth tests using Ethernet cable. Opened a case with TP LINK and they supplied an RMA and shipping address for the router. That was December 20, 2016 and it is now exactly 20 January 2017 and I have received NOTHING back. And now they also do not respond to my RMA emails! Avoid this company. Avoid this router.

    Works OK, but...

    By 

    from New Orleans, LA

    It works pretty well. I have owned mine for about 2 years now. The only persistent problems I have with it (even with the newest firmware) is that the router administration page becomes unreachable at least once a week, requiring a reboot of the router.

    Also, it doesn't work with Apple's Time Machine. If you hook a USB drive to either of the USB ports, you can indeed access the drives to read and write files to them, but, if you try to select the drive in Time Machine to be used as the backup drive, it will not be detected for use.

            I first experienced a TP-Link wireless router in Iceland. It was an older model TP-Link yet delivered Internet speeds faster than anything I had experienced in the U.S., approximately 165Mbps.

            In the interim, I have learned more about TP-Link, the company, and respect the focus on technical design and quality products.

            By 

            from Birmingham, AL

            By far, this has been the best modem I've ever purchased. I have gone through multiple routers over the years and I never have liked relying on the built in routers that my ISP provided. The Archer C9 has made all of my customizations extremely easy to setup and I consider myself to be picky. Keep up the great work and I will continue to recommend this router to everyone I know. I work with customers all the time and recommend this router to them and they all have told me how much they love it.
