The TP-Link Archer C7 router delivers an impressive performance for most tasks of the average home user would do on a home network.
You will be impressed by the C7’s wireless coverage—the 2.4GHZ band throughput slowed by 10 percent when moving from 5 to 30 feet away. The 5GHZ throughput band drops only by 8 percent.
This is very impressive since even with very high performing routers, you will experience drops of 15 percent or more. The C7 is very rigid in design and frills, but sufficient in function and performance.
Besides 3 external antennas, the C7 router includes 3 internal antennas, the external antennas serving the 5-GHZ band while the 3 internal antennas serving the 2.4-GHZ band.
Operating on both 2.4GHZ and 5GHZ, TP-Link Archer C7 produces an incredible performance. The concurrent dual band offers flexibility to dual dedicated networks. 2.4GHZ handles simple tasks like web browsing while 5GHZ band handles intensive tasks like HD video streaming or online gaming.
