Yes but Amazon customer service is much better than Argos .... No doubt about it

Good to know that you got what you need. As mentioned earlier in the post ,I have been after this Router as well but price was not right but at this price this is best one you can get. I hope it will sort out all of your issues.

Thought I’d update with some initial performance impressions now I’ve received mine. Note, this is in my own house, not the intended location yet. Tested against a Virgin Hub 3 downstairs, and an older wired-in AP used to cover upstairs (Apple Time Capsule). The main caveat is that there were at most 2 devices on the C4000, and generally a number more mostly idle on the VHub, although not on the TC. I put the new C4000 in both locations to test comparative performance. Raw signal strength for all 3 radios was very similar, if not a tiny bit worse than the VHub. It was similar but generally a fraction better than the TC. However, the measured speeds tell a different story. I’ve got a 200Mbps connection, and in one particular trouble spot (bedroom) get as low as 10-30, whether I’m connected to downstairs or upstairs. The C4000 consistently gave me full line speed of 200 on an iPhone XS - 10x performance - if it steered me towards a 5Ghz band, or 40-50 on 2.4Ghz (which it tended to avoid). That was true whether the C4000 was downstairs or upstairs. Another location, at the edge of the VHub’s range, gave me 5-15, but frequently dropped entirely during testing. The C4000 delivered 20-30 and doesn’t drop. Testing with my work T460 laptop gave slightly less impressive results, but always still faster than the existing kit. Given that I’m replacing an Apple Airport in the deployment location, I’m pretty delighted with that and confident it’s going to perform well.

Confession: I haven't set this up myself yet but am in the process as my current Asus router is proving to be unreliable. In addition to a more stable connection I want to set up a separate IoT network (Asus router guest network not suitable). I plan to go for USG (or Edgerouter X) plus an access point as this is the minimum I need (I only have one wired device). This seems to be a common setup. USG has a better GUI but ER-X has more ports. You can add additional access points (including outdoor ones) to increase coverage. Has PoE. I would have recommended pfsense once but puts too much pressure on me when things go wrong. Plus takes more power if you don't have a suitable PC to hand.

CraigT

I was particularly interested in the setup that you consider superior, as in currently looking to improve my wi-fi setup - SH3, TP-Link powerline extenders plus another TP-Link router upstairs. It works okay, but a little unsure on what would definitely improve things. Thanks

mah624

Typical setup would be modem=>USG=>access point (one or more) but if you want wired devices chuck a managed switch in the mix. There's loads of guides on the internet.

CraigT

What would you recommend? Wired access points? Multiple APs? Better Router? Mesh?

TP-Link Archer C80 AC1900 MU-MIMO Dual Band Wireless Gaming Router For £84.99 @ Amazon

Posted 15th JulPosted 15th Jul
Deal is back in stock, previous thread here but it's expired and seems to have been sold out last month. Supports both 2.4GHz at 600mbps max + 5GHz at 1300mbps max.
Numb3rs

Sharing my feedback on the c80 vs the asus-ac85p incase it helps anyone. I've tested the C80 and Asus and found the c80 dwarfed the Asus. Tested both routers with the same devices at the same ranges, under the same loads and at the same times throughout the day (same 4k video and speed tests). Also manually setting the same bands for 2&5ghz. And updating the firmware. At close range (1-4meters) They performed the same. But any distance beyond 8 meters showed the c80 ahead. The Asus did have slighty higher upload speed but no where near the download. One blindspot in the house was the furthest upstairs bedroom where the Asus delivered download speeds between 8-15mbs but the C80 came in at 44-58mbs! The c80 pushed wifi further down the garden too which was a surprise. I have virgin 200mb BB and both routers were a massive improvement to the not so SuperHub3 but found the c80 has done the job for me. Tempted by the Ax50 now! (lol)

jamie15

I've been using this router for a few days, definitely improves speeds but still need Whole Home for certain areas.

bill888

hmm, it looks like it is powered by single core 1.2 GHz ARM processor. But only 4 MB of flash means OpenWrt will never come to the C80. Thinking about it, I wonder if the reason TPlink chose to name it the C80 is because they knew it was minimal spec with no USB sockets, and so not worthy of being called C8 v5. (2017 C8 v4 was powered by dual core 800MHz ARM chip with 128 MB flash)

Numb3rs

Thanks you! I'm looking to replace my SH3 and range is the most important factor at the moment. I noticed the Asus does not have smart connect/smartswitch either which does help when moving around the house. Would normally wait for a better Wifi6 router but the hub is on its last legs.

Correct. It is quite straightforward but you need to set up new router anyway. You don't need BT Hub anymore. I suggest to Google how to do this i.e. https://community.bt.com/t5/BT-Fibre-broadband/Archer-VR900/td-p/1768345

katestewart9279

Thanks that’s helpful. Yes my son was on about pings but I hadn’t got a clue what he’s talking about.

Azurren

Hmmm, unless there is a service issue with virgin in your area it should beat TalkTalk and just about any other "phone line" style broadband packages. Do you have a laptop / desktop PC? For accurate results you'll need to be connected via ethernet but WIFI can give you a "ball-park" figure if you're in the same room as your wifi router. A site such as https://gameserverping.com/ should help you diagnose if your son is having real lag issues or is suffering from "gamer lag". Even if he doesn't play fortnite, League of Legends, Call of Duty and CS:GO are good tests here. Take the result from the closest server (Lowest number) and look for inconsistencies. A ping under 30ms is good, 50ms on wifi. A ping approaching or exceeding 100ms is generally bad. A fluctuating ping can be even worse. You could have the best connection to the server imaginable (10ms) but if it spikes up and down +-20ms you have a problem. Ping on wifi will fluctuate more than wired. Look for spikes exceeding 100ms. Let these tests run for at least a minute and disregard the results from the first 10 seconds as the page loads Test when he's not gaming / not home to get a baseline. Test again when he's gaming and especially test if he's complaining of lag.

katestewart9279

Thanks. I bought an Ethernet cable but my son says Virgin broadband is terrible for gaming and wants Talk Talk

My sh3 would disconnect when a few metres away, now using a fritzbox and the improvement is massive

No.

Tony_DR

Competitive gamers likely can feel a ~7% difference. People pay twice the price for monitors with that scale of difference in latency. And of course latency is cumulative so every little helps.

KrisTfur

And are you able to notice the difference with +1-2ms???

Tony_DR

Using WiFi increases your ping time by circa 1-2ms versus ethernet. That hasn't changed notably in recent years.

CaptainZero

I always have under 30ms ping in every online game I play. Again, using WiFi upstairs. Sooo... idk, don't get me wrong ethernet used to be leaps and bounds ahead of WiFi, but nowadays it's a lot closer.

Hi everyone, my mobile router Huawei E5573s-320 is dying and I urgently need to get a new one as I'm working remotely via my broadband contract with Three Ireland. I read this whole thread but my knowledge in router/Internet technology is very limited and I won't have time to study this topic thoroughly, so I'd be very grateful if any router-savvy could take 2 minutes to tell me the main difference(s) between the models MR200, MR400 and MR600 :) My budget is around £100 and here's my Speedtest result if this may help you understanding my current connection: Thanks!

ganon

I have the Archer MR200. I'm using Smarty and get 12mb download on 4g and 20mb on 3g. Would a new router change this?

Plastered

I have a Huawei B612 and the signal is good but it drops out when my mobile signal is good. My OnePlus 7 phone takes two sim cards so I put both in it. Same... the phone sim works a lot better than the unlimited broadband sim. Both on 3. I had a replacement unlimited sim and there's no difference. 4G signal is very good. Why??

Picked mine up today. Stuck my superhub3 into modem mode. Took me a little while to work out I had swopped the ssids around for 2g and 5g. On 5g getting over 200mbps in rooms even upstairs. Impressed that upnp picked up the ports for my CCTV. I also got a business version switch so all my wired connections come from that into one port on the router and then just the cable for super hub into the router

lazy_egg

eero pro is the Amazon new whole home wifi product like the TP-Link Deco series. It needs 2 to 3 even more units working together to provide a whole-home wifi coverage. But just for faster speed and no requirement in large coverage, AX50 should be better. Plus, the price of eero pro is soooooooooo high.

Adil_Ouerradi

Which is better this kind of routers or eero pro from amazon, I don't understand the difference, could someone explain please, just want to improve my WiFi connection

Reiko9

Yes. TP Link gear is decent, and this particular model is a good one. Their firmware is sold and has lots of useful features. Only thing is it will struggle a bit trying to route over about 3-400Mb/sec with large numbers of connections, e.g. bittorrent. But so will almost all consumer grade routers. For very high capacity use get an x86 router box from AliExpress and run pfSense. Otherwise these are brilliant. The WiFi is pretty solid too.

fwiw, the two photos show this to be the VDSL modem router Archer 'VR400' model. Not the 'C1200' non-modem model. One of the 4 LAN ports is dual function LAN/WAN, so this router can be used in non-modem mode, such as for connecting to Virgin Cable after putting Superhub in 'bridge' mode. There is no DD-WRT or OpenWRT support for this modem router.

I've actually got a TX3000E connecting to an AX6000 on Wifi6 5ghz (router and adapter on different floors). It's eliminated all dropouts, haven't had a dropped connection once. A file transfer from a PC connected to the router through Ethernet to the adapter has a transfer speed that goes between 25-50megabytes a second which is much faster than I had before, It seesaws between those rates but I don't know how much of that is down to interference on windows flaky file transfer protocols. I will say that it matches the issues people have had with this chipset though. TLDR: significantly better than AC but there will almost certainly be better, 2nd gen adapters coming out somepoint this year.

bill888

TP-Link AX50/AX3000 is powered by Intel/Lantiq GRX350 processor and WAV654 wifi according to wiki page https://wikidevi.wi-cat.ru/TP-LINK_Archer_AX50 https://www.guru3d.com/news-story/tp-link-archer-ax50-listed-at-fcc-an-ax3000-wi-fi-6-router-based-on-intel-hardware.html This is a bit odd because the GRX350 is usually found in VDSL modem routers. This AX50 does not have a DSL modem port for FTTC/VDSL2 connection..... Other Wifi-6 routers on the market from Asus (RT-AX56) and Netgear (AX8) seem to favour Broadcom chipset. TP-Link also make a AX10/AX1500 but it is not sold in the UK. It uses Broadcom chipset. The very few reviews on Amazon UK for the AX50/AX3000 don't look favourable. At end of the day, they are all '1st generation' Wifi-6 products. There are likely to be a few teething/compatibility problems, much like when 802.11ac products were announced almost a decade ago.

brookheather

In real life use 802.11ax seems to offer double the speed if using the 2.4GHz band but on the 5GHz band it isn't actually much faster than 802.11ac. Review of the Archer TX3000E adapter: https://www.digitalcitizen.life/tp-link-archer-tx3000e-review

It’s worse when on Gfast.

Can use with BT line services, it has no fibre port, needs fibre adapter. :D

Thick noob question. It says cable router. So for virgin fibre only or can use with BT line services?

GGWP

I'm afraid not, it just takes £29.70, what else you want it do? As I know, some ASUS Router can use Open WRT, you can have a try. (y)

This is a relatively high spec router with excellent 2.4/5GHZ range. (Router only, no internal modem). Usual amazon price was £65 until today.

Yep, no modem mode on recent sky routers, but they do support a DMZ, put the tp-link in the sky's DMZ and it should route all incoming traffic to it. Still be better to get a vdsl router though, so you can just bung the sky router in the cupboard and forget about it until you need sky to sort a service fault.

I have the TP-LINK Archer VR600 and it supports SKY, Its even in a dropdown box in the setup menu. And as as pointed out, you do not even need your Sky Pasword any longer. Just make sure you select VDSL option. Does not need to be hooked up to your old modem either. Has built in FTP server for the two USB ports built in, Gigabit Ethernet, and Mediaserver built in. My TV sees it off the bat. Have IOS, and Android media players, and it streams faultlessly to them, remotly, via WIFI or Cellular. Faster than he junk SKY supplied, on my fiber connection. 73d/19u And the Wifi Signal is much better. Oh, not to mention, you can play to your hearts content with any DNS server you want. I use Adguard DNS, no ads on any of my devices while connected to it. You can also set the DNS induviduly for both the 2.4g & 5g connection. Has guest network to There are newer versions that have USB3 ports, but I'm happy.

Agree, if you're short on power, sockets or space, don't buy this. That's not strictly true... you can turn off AP & DHCP on the Sky router. Then assign a fixed IP for the Sky router on the TPlink and let it handle the routing across you own network.. I've tried this setup and also using an HG612. Despite the extra hop there is no latency difference but you need to know how to set it up. Bottom line..... if you want to buy this, I think it's the cheapest it's ever been..

You cannot set the Sky router to modem only mode. It will still be in charge of all the routing as you cannot configure these settings with Sky. You need to either get a router with a modem built-in(supports adsl/vdsl) or get a unlocked Openreach modem off ebay etc. You could however turn off DHCP on the TP-Link and make it in to an glorified access point, if you don't mind being restricted by the Sky routers limited settings/functionality to manage your network.

Phrasing.
