Reviews & Community QA

TP-Link C5 AC 1200 Dual Band 5 Gigabit Wireless Router is rated 2.6 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from OUTSTANDING SPEED IN 5G, BEEN RELIABLE TO DATE Running Mac, PC, Iphone, and smart tv. Outstanding performance on both floors of house, best performance to date in detached garage of any router to date, no repeaters in use. Bought it used, and reset and updated firmware first thing, has been consistent so far. The light weight is a small issue, replaced an Asus RT66U which has some heft to it, with 3 cat6 cables attached it tries to "wheely", which modifies the antenna position. Run the 3 antenna straight up, and getting great range. Pegs 118 mbps upstairs and 123 downstairs, 45 in garage 50' from router, this on Xfinity 100mbps plan!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This router works like a hit an miss engine I have rock-solid fiber to home internet. Then I have this router. It's strange what it does but it is reliably strange. It does two things all the time. One it will show internet access, both LAN and wireless, but there will not be internet access. So, I can be on a wireless device, it shows full signal and I click to load a page, the page responds with no internet access. This happens regardless of it being a browser or an internet program. Two, the internet access will show there is no internet at the moment. It will take a few seconds and come back on. Unlike most the others my router recovers without a reboot. Here is the other thing, I just came from an ADSL IP. It was doing the same exact thing when I had that provider and that was who I was blaming for my problems. When I got the fiber IP I thought for sure my problems would go away. They did not change at all. So, two different IP's same problem. Positive it is the router. When I go to diagnose and ping 50 times. It takes way to much time as it does a few pings, then stops, does a few more, stops and so on. The pings are perfect in every way except that they are not executed without many pauses.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dropping signal within a week, don't bother, garbage! Always dropping signal twice a day, once before morning other sometime during the evening. Never had a problem with the other router, this lead to the conclusion of this router is just garbage.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't but this router After few months of usage.. Router fallen apart.. Connection is very unstable and Internet goes down.. Power cycle is the only option to restore the internet.. You might end up doing this 3 to 4 times a day....

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disconnects constantly Worked for about 5 months. Now I've got the same problem you will see many people complaining about recently here and elsewhere. The router will disconnect devices and won't let you reconnect until you power cycle the router. This happens multiple times daily. Would not recommend.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 9 month old AC 1200 Router fails to allow clients to connect Sadly the AC 1200, which was stable for the first 9 months of use, now fails to allow wired or wireless connections every day!. Reset the device to factory in vain. The firmware reads current for the V1 version.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Extremely disappointed When it's working, it's fast and has great coverage all over the house. But at least every other day, and often more than once per day, it stops allowing devices to connect and I have to reboot it by unplugging/replugging. I've tried a lot of different settings, and nothing helps. The latest version of the firmware is over a year old (???). I'm in the market for a new one and won't be buying TP-link.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Started dropping connection after 3 months After 3 months, our Archer C1200 router (hardware rev 2) started dropping WiFi connection several times per day, requiring power cycle each time to fix. Extremely annoying because our internet connection was constantly being interrupted. Checked to make sure firmware was up to date, found that hardware rev 2 has no firmware updates, only rev 3. Tried adjusting channel and channel width but did not resolve the problem. Switched out the Archer C1200 for a different router I had lying around and the problem went away. Draw your own conclusions, but I definitely wouldn't recommend this router.
