In contrast to that experience I have a C2 that I'm looking to replace. Its been nothing but trouble, its constantly getting stuck at 100mbit speed and wont revert to 1000mbit until restarted. This seems to be a known but not very common problem with some versions. TP link support was next to useless, made me jump through hoop after hoop and never made any progress, i gave up eventually because it just wasn't worth the hassle. I'm tempted to buy this because i have other good TP link products but my experience with the C2 has made me cautious.


Ok, that’s enough for me not to buy (lol) (lol) (lol)


Na, I've had several Belkin routers and switches......3 power supplies went and 2 of the units themselves were dead within a couple of years. Otherwise I found them reliable only needing to reset them biannually.


My hub 3 is in Modem only mode and hidden under the sofa. I have an Archer C2 as Phil had and it works much better and connection is far more consist. I very rarely need to reboot it. My issue with this one is showing a lack of Gigabit LAN.


I had an old TP-LINK archer c2 AC750. Brilliant little thing. Had an up time of 6 months+ (only reset it due to power cut or for one firmware update). Only replaced it as old BT fibre modem needed retiring as not compatible with new standards and new plusnet router was in theory faster AC wireless (I'm pretty sure its a rebranded BT homehub anyway). Really miss it as I'm sure it was better at holding connections than the plusnet router despite being slower on paper. If this had a built in VDSL2 modem i'd be all over it.

Skys new fibre hub also has terrible wifi, i use a Asus DSL-N55u router in AP mode and connect to skys hub with cat 5e cable , disabling sky hub wifi and use the Asus as my Wifi access point only the results are incredible ,,, works a treat


Is it better than 2? is the question, I buy TT hg-633s off ebay to use a range extenders for a fiver each. They are very good range extenders.


A repeater/extender would be used to extend your wireless network, so it does exactly what it says, but you would ideally need to run a cable from your main router(virgin media) to the repeater/extender as I do not recommend connecting them wirelessly. If you have another router then you might benefit turning it into an wireless access point, but again I recommend hardwiring, Although I don't know if that would be practical in your home, but this method will extend your wireless and would increase your wireless range. In the circumstance of mummymelly above, your virgin media router would be turned into modem mode and would be supplying your Internet to the router attached which then routes traffic to all devices connected, so the only reason why people do this setup is because of the following; a) Virgin hub wireless range is poor b) Can flash custom firmware to 3rd party routers allowing further customisation and implementation to network protocols, ect...


Is this better than a talk talk router


Any idea what would be the difference between using it like this as opposed to just using the TP link as a repeater or an extender please? Cheers.

You're welcome.


Thanks for the comprehensive reply - it makes total sense to me all my other equipment does have gigabit ports it makes sence to keep to that standard...cheers


Apologies for my late reply as the deal now seems to be expired. All ethernet is not equal. The ethernet with this device is 10/100 Mbps, which means it transfers data upto 100 Mbps (the highest common speed between devices is used 10/100 Mbps). The next standard is 10/100/1000 Mbps (or gigabit ethernet). Which as you can probably guess is 10 times faster than the previous standard (and backwards compatible). If you regularly copy files between your laptop and desktop, especially large files or backups, that's where you'll notice the difference. However, for it to make any difference to you, your laptop and desktop both need to have gigabit ethernet ports also. I would suggest that any laptop/desktop purchased new in the last 5 years is very likely to have gigabit ethernet. If either one doesn't, the speed will drop from 1000 Mbps to 100 Mbps automatically (100 Mbps has been the standard for a long time, so don't worry about it dropping to 10 Mbps). Also, if you have say Virgin broadband and have 150 Mbps broadband (their routers have gigabit ports), then you connect it to a wireless switch with a 10/100 port, and then subsequently you connect your laptop by cable to this switch, you will get a max speed of 100 Mbps even if your laptop supports gigabit ethernet. This is because communication take place on the highest standard between devices. Hence never having access to the 50 Mbps over the 100 Mbps that virgin offer - solution would be to connect directly to the virgin router by cable. Sorry for the long post, hope it helps.


What does this actually mean to me ? I usally have my laptop and desktop connected via Ethernet...looking at the images it has ethernet sockets so what is the issue? cheers


its for my wife to connect her old ipad to the wireless. thats why i need wifi. thanks

It could be provided with a dedicated chip for WiFi encryption so that it doesn’t require offloading to the CPU that way it would just be a pipe with a fixed very low latency


then the measuring system is insufficient or there is a fault on the wired connection, it doesn't take much to realise that the level of encryption and compression on a wifi vs a wired connection cannot happen instantaneuosly.


The settings arent as comprehensive as the ones you quoted, but I think you are mistaken with them being direct competitors; at launch they were double the price of the TPL variants this is based on; and the Asus had loads of problems that made them very unstable for over a year after launch. As for weak wifi, it is a mantra I've kept hearing in reviews of TPL gear, going back a decade; but is it? I can connect to my parents Archer VR200 AC750 (the baby of the range) from 200 metres away; across a busy road, a carpark, and a childrens play area filled with metal climbing frames - bog standard set up and a cheap Xiaomi phone


I measured it in-game, over a couple of hours; game pings vary quite a lot (connection to a US server), but the min ping was the same for both. Also tested static to a local ping test server and also the same results over multiple tests with both. YES radio interference can affect Wifi, I had it myself with older "Draft N" gear, but then it was a very severe problem that also took out TV AND radio. So yes, if you get a lot of local RF noise, Wifi isnt the best, but no, the actual latency, ping etc under normal conditions was the same. OLDER routers with older chipsets DID have an issue with the wifi connection latency being higher than ethernet; which is where all this "wifi is no good for gaming" came from.


I had one and yes it was reliable, however the software is very limited in what you could do with it compared to on paper and at launch price direct competitors, eg Netgear R7000 and Asus A68U. Apart from the very early ones there's, or at least was, very little you can do about it as flashing with something more useful gives you a good chance of ending up with a brick. Wifi was also surprisingly weak compared to the R7000 that replaced it.

Yes your correct the amazon link is for the 3c version which i wouldn't bother with. the aliexpress link seems to be for the 3g version by the specs, but is titled just 3, but it is the English version which is nice, no problem with the Chinese version which i have, as I just use the app to set up the router which comes in English, you can also use translate in chrome once set up.


That's about £33 delivered from the FE. Get it from Amazon instead for under £25 in a few days: - my bad, it's not the same one, is it? Just over £22 delivered from Aliepress - this appears to be the same one? I've heard it doesn't work with all ISP-supplied routers, so definitely get it from Amazon for the easy returns at the very least!

Had to return this. Absolute piece of turd. Couldn't see the 5GHz network on my new TP-link 1200 router.


But it would be the year that the transitioning effect will occur. With this standard being working on both 2.4GHZ & 5GHZ bands with the same speed benefits, it will be likely companies would take up the ax over the ac standard.


Can I plug this into my phone charger and turn my new WIFI enabled charger into a wireless charger? Can I plug this into a non WIFI enabled printer and make it a WIFI printer?


Doesn't mean as soon as it hits 2020 it's going to become obsolete. In fact, not many of us will upgrade everything in our homes and neither will businesses so I think this will last quite a while, and even if we upgrade in future... it will likely still be backwards compatible with this adapter so it won't go to waste


Everything in computing is obsolete if you can buy it, but it'll still keep working for another 10+ years probably.... we've had 802.11b for 18 years or so and only recently is it being dropped from some devices. plus this is £7 so who really cares if it lasts a couple years only?

Thanks for the info, but having owned one and spent hours trying numerous different drivers and numerous network tweaks, I won't be buying one these wifi dongles again - the tiny antennae just aren't anywhere near as good as a full sized antennae or antennae already built into laptops in terms of reception and throughput.


If you do a Windows Update eventually it should update to this version 1030.23.502.2017 which seems to work fine. There are also some newer 1030.27 drivers on Softpedia which also seem to work fine with Windows 10 April 2018 update:


Here is an article about the performance problem with this chipset after installing Windows 10 CU: Here is an official link to the latest 1030.25 drivers but I found my adapter kept crashing with this version.


Where are those drivers from? Are they official TP-Link drivers or are they drivers that have been modded by someone?


It works well if you install the drivers I linked to above.

Maplin went bust because it was took over by a company who borrowed money to buy the company then added this debt to Maplins books once the purchase had gone through. They then charged Maplin high interest rates on the debt, think it 17%. Watch GKN go the same way. System is broken


I replaced it with an Apple AirPort Extreme from Cex. It's been rock solid from the day I've installed. WiFi coverage and speed is excellent. Very limited configuration options but just sits in the corner and works. No reboots, no dropping connections. Incredibly well engineered. This was my speed test results this morning a room away from the router, I'm on a 200Mbps BT Infinity 3 connection.

I just hooked it in my apartment and in my case the Virgin Router 3.0 is much better. I have tested different location of the TP Link and its antenna alignment and in most cases is the same or much worse (up to -20 dB) then the Virgin. The further I go the bigger difference it shows. I will try to return it and switch to ethernet over power solution. That I wanted to avoid.


Hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha. Top bantz.


@SouthParkFan if anyone's being immature its yourself! XD As the other posters have correctly stated, you would need to connect this routers WAN port to your existing internet providers WAN Cable or router. If you have a 200 or 300Mbps internet connection, its going to be bottle-necked at 100Mbps thanks to this rather useless router. The only advantage of the super fast 1.35Gbps wireless, is you would be able to transfer files between wireless devices on the network nice and fast. But the internet would suck a bit.


Southparkfan, the other two posters are correct in highlighting the ports for others to be advised, and neither were 'immature' - if anything your responses to both were. Any incoming broadband connection will be connected by the WAN port, which is 10/100, so yes any BB connection above 100Mb is immediately wasted. Then having fast wifi to it becomes slightly pointless, you may see good wireless to wireless connections, but that's rare. To say that 100Mb is sufficient (ignoring the first point) completely misses that many people have many devices feeding off a server or other network attached device and would be limited by only 100Mb. This router may be sufficient for your needs, and that's ok, but don't tell people stating facts that they need to know what they're talking about.


What you don't seem to understand if you have 200 mb coming in if you connect 4 devices the speed will be shared between each which means 10/100 is plenty. I have reported your post for you immaturity.

On one hand how often does one use Ethernet port on their laptops these days but on the other even a 10" notebooks have one (standard) and when you need to use it you would not to expect to have a such a hassle to fit the cable in... Check software called inssider (older versions are free, newer ones come with a 30 day trial). It will show your and your neighbors network signal strength, link quality between your network and your device. How many networks are on the same channel as yours etc. Sometimes by simply changing your network broadcast channel you could improve your speed eg if your closest networks are say on 6th and 11th channel, then you should set up yours on channel 1.


I don't know..I thought all laptops are the same...I might write Lenovo a mail about this, maybe they will provide me an adapter or something..
