Rated 3 out of 5 by from Worked great for 10 months I bought this based on the specs and loved the crystal clear pictures on my TV. I was really happy with it until it suddenly stopped working, don't know why. I tried for several hours to restart modem, router, service, unplugged things, and it turned out the router is dead. Can't connect to it or to the internet. Dead dead dead. Very disappointed. Such a compact little router did a great job, but no more. Very sad.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good at first, now productive WLAN use very limited The router worked fine at first, but now there are serious problems with the WLAN (Official Firmware 4.0.0. Build 20160517 Rel. 44603) Clients get kicked out of the WLAN, although the WLAN is still transmitting (and other clients are still connected). A wireless re-connection is not possible, because the router says "wrong password". The only thing that resolves this issue is a complete reboot of the device and the router accepts the same password again as a proper one... This happens frequently in both the 2.4 and the 5 GHz net , therefore the productive use is very limited...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great 802.11AC Router at a Great Price I have had my Archer C8 for over a year now and am very happy with it. I have not had any problems with the signal or connections. Set up was very simple. I only wish the lights on the router flickered to show activity. I like to see activity lights flicker, especially when I'm emailing or uploading a file online, that way I know it is working properly. Other than that, I am very happy with my router and I bought it at a very good price as well.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Pretty basic for advanced router Poor reception on both 2.4 and 5GHz bands - my 6 years old Linksys w/o external antennas is better in comparison. No QoS - only bandwidth shaping. Searching in support mention using the "blue" version of firmware, but it seems to apply only to C7/C9. It seems TP-Link is gave up with this model - no firmware updates at all (the last published one is the initial version dating back to 2015) Overall - pretty basic router with good hardware specs - so almost useless :(

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Router I attached a 1TB portable drive to the usb 3.0 port. Now the family has shared storage for music, pics, videos and backup documents. Storage is password protected which is great. My only complaint is that, unlike Archer C7 v1, you cannot create multiple user account and assign read/write per user. So I live in fear of one of my kids unintentionally erasing all our files. Please make all your customers happy by updating firmware so that we can assign read/write access per user.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful I have tried on 2 different days to connect this unit. All 3 lights on unit are on, on my laptop network status says I'm connected, but try to use the web and it says I'm not connected. Then Tried my I pad to configure with web browser and got some long message about to link not available and try later!! THis is not worth the aggravation!!!
