TP-Link C5 AC 1200 Dual Band 5 Gigabit Wireless Router is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Still no KRACKs firmware update I replaced an older Linksys with this. The Linksys got KRACKs fixes on10/18/17. And that was a 5 year old router. This is a newish router and it still has no fix. I'm not buying TP-LINK products again

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not as pictured First, it did NOT come with 3 antennas as described AND pictured. Also the lights on the front are different. I set this up by the wireless method and it asked for a security code. No where could I find a security code. I called Tech support and was put on hold and never got to a person. I finally stumbled on the security code on the label on the bottom of router where it says "Wireless password/Pin" and that worked for the security code so I hung up with tech support. I guess I am supposed to know that a password/pin is a security code. After I figured that out setup was fairly simple using those numbers. My printer even found the network and setup with that PIN number. I was disappointed that the router was not the one described or pictured but time will tell how it really works. So far it is working with a good signal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Dual Band Router This is router is a dual band router allowing you to connect older devices on the 2.4 GHz band and newer devices on the 5 GHz band. It is small and light weight and the antennas are easy to adjust if needed. It is pretty much a plug and play device, unless you want to use it as a bridge or change the Wi-Fi password. So setting up the router shouldn't take more than 5 minutes to do. If you download the free tether app from the app store on your smart device then you will be able to see what devices are connected to the router and also set up parental controls and other settings as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong signal to 4 phones, 2 laptops and my Xbox without lag The router allows me to download files, play XBOX One or PS4, plus have multiple phones connected without issue. I can play online and still max out my download limits set by Verizon and the program I use to download a lot of files. Streaming off Amazon Prime also worked great. I don't like giving out my personal password so I really like TP-Link because their guest network is awesome. It's simple to setup and easy to use. The Tether App makes managing my network easier than any other router I've used. I'd definitely recommend this to anyone running about a half dozen devices at once and people who want an easy to use/control router. Submitted as part of a free sample program.
