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

maddogb

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

Gentle_Giant

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.

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

dannykerner1990

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.

davening

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?

thegamingkinginfo

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

spannerzone

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: http://drivers.softpedia.com/get/NETWORK-CARD/REALTEK/Realtek-RTL8821AU-Wireless-USB-Adapter-Driver-1030-27-901-2017-for-Windows-10-Fall-Creators-Update-64-bit.shtml

Picard123

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

brookheather

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

paulgee31

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.

To move the router upstairs. I'm guessing that might be another connection. I've found this cable, might for it instead. https://www.amazon.co.uk/WHITE-VIRGIN-MEDIA-BROADBAND-EXTENSION/dp/B0074RZ1TC

That is to install a new port, I assume.

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.

@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.

tapi

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.

SouthParkFan

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.

For future reference, 'kind of' is the answer you're after. It'll run an OpenVPN server, but not act as a client.. meaning you can't just put your NordVPN details into it and have everything routed through as a 'one box' solution.

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.
