TP-LINK Announces Archer C7 802.11 ac Router for Online Gaming, HD Video

TP-LINK, a global provider of networking products, today announced the AC1750 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router, Archer C7, the first in a family of next-generation routers that support the 802.11 ac standard, to deliver faster data transfer rates of up to 1.75 Gbps.

TP-LINK's Archer C7 operates over both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands to give users two dedicated networks to ensure lag-free throughput for work or entertainment. Devices processing simple tasks, such as sending e-mails or web browsing, can operate on the 2.4 GHz band while those that process bandwidth intensive tasks, such as online gaming or HD video streaming, can leverage the 5 GHz band - all at the same time.

The Archer C7 features three detachable external 5dBi antennas to serve the 5 GHz band and three internal antennas that serve to 2.4GHz band, reducing co-channel interference. The combination helps users maintain high speeds across greater distances anywhere in a large home or office.

To provide an added level of security, TP-LINK ships all wireless routers pre-encrypted to ensure that end-user networks are protected from the moment they are plugged in. Users can customize their security settings and set-up a guest network to further protect personal data.

"Routers are the hub of the digital home and business. As more smart devices enter the scene, consumers need a smart router solution that can deliver speed and range, ease-of-use, solid security, and enable them to access their data wherever they are," said Lewis Wu, Country Manager for TP-LINK USA.

Other standard features include IPv6 support as well as one gigabit WAN port and four gigabit LAN ports for ultra fast data transfers. Dual multi-functional USB 2.0 ports are also included, which allow users to share printers, files and media with different devices throughout a local area network and via an ftp server while away from home.

TP-LINK's Archer C7 can serve as a powerful hub to support a robust AC1750 network for any home or business, available now at MSRP $149.99.

TP-LINK Archer C7 Highlights:
  • Supports 802.11 ac standard - the next generation of WiFi
  • Simultaneous 2.4 GHz 450 Mbps and 5 GHz 1300 Mbps connections for 1.75 Gbps of total available bandwidth
  • Three 5 dBi external antennas and three internal antennas provide maximum Omni-directional wireless coverage and reliability
  • Dual USB Ports - easily share printers, files or media with friends or family, locally or over the internet
  • Guest Network Access to provide secure WiFi access for guests sharing the home or office network

Agree, you can deploy several hundreds until one will come back with some kind of problem.
