    So, I was a bit hesitant at first and skeptical that this would actually increase the speed of the internet. Well, we have satellite internet at our place (out in the woods) and it was incredibly slow. They say it was 10Mbps, However we were only pulling about 5 – 10% of that speed, if we were lucky! Watching a short 5 minute YouTube video was taking forever to load and buffer; Loading internet pages like Facebook and Google often took much more than a minute to load; Gaming online was horrendous. The amount of lag was infuriating; IF we could even get online at that. One week of this internet was ridiculous.

    So, after searching and comparing many different brands, I chose this router because it was cost-friendly and seemed to have potential. I bought it and it arrived within the week (I think it was just a few days, if I recall correctly. Fast shipping!) So, I hooked it all up to my modem and my PC and followed the setup instructions, which were quite easy to follow. I don’t have a disc reader on my PC, so I just went onto their website and found the correct installer easily. (Looked under Support and Download Center, type in your model # and there it is)

    After everything was all set up, I noticed the speeds or downloads increased drastically! I tested it by downloading a game update to my xbox which were previously at average speeds of 600Kbps, and were now at average speeds of 20Mbps with occasional random boosts up to 130+Mbps. Which was the most shocking part. We never get speeds like that around these rural parts, so that is considered pretty good around here! (I can only imagine how fast it would be with a hardwired/fiber optics connection.) Videos now load quite quickly with no buffer time and browsing the web runs so much more smoothly with no wait time. Truthfully, there is still a tiny bit of lag when gaming online, about a half second; However, I blame that on the satellite internet. Luckily, it’s nothing like it was before the router. In addition to the increased speeds, I find we can now have many devices connected at once with little to no disruption to the bandwidth. Albeit, we only have 1 Xbox and 1 PC hardwired, and 1 Xbox and 3 cellphones connected via Wi-Fi at any given time. I could not believe the difference this one router did to our satellite internet. I am extremely satisfied with my purchase and would definitely recommend it.

    We have been using an Arris SurfBoard SBG7600AC2 for a few months. We started having issues with the WiFi signal dropping out at least every day, sometimes multiple times a day. Each time I would have to unplug / reset the modem / router. Not fun if you’re in the middle of binge watching Netflix. I did some research and found the well known problems with routers and modems using the Intel Puma chipset. Intel should be ashamed. They’ve known about the faulty chipsets for years and continue to sell their garbage. More research into the alternative products and we found this router. Highly rated by every review site such as Tom’s Hardware and PC Mag. Excellent reviews on Amazon. I was really tempted to buy one with the A7 or A9 chipset… If the A6 chipset is as great as everyone says, then it stands to reason the A7 and A9 should be even better… right? Not entirely true. Sure, I could have paid $300 for the latest and greatest technology but the A7 was actually older and had less tech than the A6. I struggled with my decision… How could a $40 router be better than a $120 router…. I ordered the $40 router with the knowledge that I could always return it and spend the extra $$ for the bigger better version. I have a background as a microsoft systems engineer and cisco certified eng. so I’m not completely stupid no matter what the wife tells you. So… this $40 router is surprisingly good….. as in REALLY GOOD! Setup involved my iPhone downloading their app, setting up an account and setting a password. I snapped a photo of the info sticker on the bottom of the router for the network ID and password. I logged onto the wifi with my iPhone, launched the app… it found the router and after a few simple questions the process was complete. The software interface is basic compared to more robust routers, but for 95% of home users it’s all and maybe even more control than you’ll ever truly use. We kept the old Arris and we’re using it as the cable modem only…** IMPORTANT BITS HERE** turned off the wifi signals inside the old Arris modem / router for both the 2.4 ghz and the 5 ghz wifi so it wouldn’t interfere with the new TP-Link router. We have strong signals throughout the house (2000 sq ft 3 level). Really impressed so far…. I’ll update if I see any issues…. still skeptical of a $40 router being this good. **UPDATE** Ran multiple speed tests from different sites… all were within a few mbs of 200 mb download.

    A very much needed improvement over the older 2 netgear AC 750 router. I primarily used wifi accept my security cameras so I can’t give you feedback on that speed, but my wifi went from 60Mbps to over 200 and a much stronger signal throughout the house with external antennas unlike there netgear.

    Out of the box, my previous router (ASUS RT-AC66U) was able to get me ridiculous speeds on wifi (usually clocked at 900mbps), while this TP-Link one is pretty much keeping me at 50mbps. Not sure why.

    Also the range is kind of crap.

    EDIT: You need to install a *beta* firmware if you want better service for 1gbps!!! WTF?! no! My other router died because of a firmware update. I’m not doing that just to get what I supposedly PAID FOR.

    Adquirí este router para cambiar el mi señal inalambrica del típico modem que da TELMEX y de verdad fue lo mejor que pude haber hecho, se terminaron las caídas o cargas lentas, realmente este modem cumple lo que indica, la calidad y velocidad es excelente.

    After lengthy troubleshooting to ensure the issue was indeed only the router, I am left with a $50 paperweight that I can get no answers for to fix.

    Router will randomly decide to reset (drop all connection and essentially power cycle) every 15-20 min. You can imagine how that went over trying to work from home and holding bid conference calls.

    Total junk, buyer beware. Hopefully if yours is like mine, it shows within 30 days unlike myself.

    There are actually two routers on this page as of this writing: w/ MU-MIMO is the brand new Archer A6 and w/o MU-MIMO is the older C1200. I don’t know why they did it like this but both are excellent routers and all you need unless you have some very complicated home network setup or live in a very, very large house. Also, the only real difference between the two is that the A6 is much newer and sleeker looking and it has an MU-MIMO option, which is turned off by default and that you’ll probably never even notice. It’s also cheaper than the older C1200 right now.

    I had the C1200 for a few years (V1) and it never gave me a single problem. The only reason I bought the A6 is that the C1200 (at least the V1 – they’re on V3 now I think) had a problem with IPV6 networking with Comcast internet. If you care about that at all (and you probably don’t), I’ve had the new A6 for several days now and the IPV6 support has been flawless, as expected. Buy this, do the quick default setup without changing any settings (unless you want to – you can adjust a lot of things) and your wireless internet will be as fast as you ISP and modem allow.

    Me sorprendió su cobertura tanto de 5GHz como de 2.4Ghz, con el anterior aparato que era un modelo pasado de éste que tenía necesitaba un extender y con éste ya no lo necesité más, me da muy buena cobertura y velocidades, quedé muy satisfecho, es muy estable que ni se reinicia como otros aparatos que se traban.

    Update: It is now April 21, 2020 and we’ve been using the router for 2 months. It is still working perfectly for us and we have zero complaints. I highly recommend it!

    We moved to the middle of nowhere about 7 years ago and it never occurred to us to check who provided TV/internet/phone at the new house before buying. We found out after buying the house that the only providers were satellite companies. We realized very quickly that first year that satellite sucks, the internet specifically. We got locked into a $75 a month plan with HughesNet for a year and never once were able to actually use the internet that whole year. It was really frustrating. We simply did not have home internet for the past 6 years due to a lack of a decent provider. This past week Spectrum finally moved their service to our road. We immediately signed up. I knew I wasn’t paying them $5 a month to rent a router from them but I also wasn’t sure at all how to pick out a router myself. I’ve always been pretty tech savvy but when you lose access(and a need) to those things you stop keeping up with them, I was seriously behind on all the new updates that have been made over the last several years. I knew I didn’t want to spend more than $50 on a router and after doing some research I finally decided on this TP-Link AC1200 and basically just hoped for the best. Some of the reviews weren’t great so I was nervous. It arrived a day after our internet was installed so I set it up by myself. It took me all of 20 mins from unboxing to the whole house having Wi-Fi, it was VERY easy. I love that it has it’s own app, a very convenient feature. We live in a 2000sq. ft., one floor, manufactured home. These homes have pretty thin walls so the signal reaches from one end to the other very easily. We are also extremely heavy on our data usage in this family and while it’s only been a couple of days now it has had zero trouble keeping up with us. We’ve had zero buffering while streaming & using our phones, everything has been working very quickly. We have several smart TVs, cell phones, a laptop, a printer & a PS4 connected to it at the moment. The technician from Spectrum who installed our internet also said this was a good option for our 200mbps plan. I hope this helps someone make up their mind on whether this router will be a good choice for them. I will update the review if anything changes but as of now this seems to have been a pretty solid purchase and I’m happy with it.
