The TP-LINK Archer C2 router is backward compatible with the many mobile devices in existence today using 802.11n and 802.11g, and offers customers affordable, seamless migration for the emerging 802.11ac standard. This will be appeal to users who are satisfied with their current wireless infrastructure, but want to prepare for higher available bandwidth and mobile access speeds at a future date.
Stable Omni-Directional Signal and Superior Coverage
The new router includes "best-in-class" proprietary antenna technology with two detachable external antennas, providing omni-directional stable signals for superior wireless coverage and signal strength in every direction. Users can benefit from expanded wireless coverage and reliability from anywhere in a large home or office.
The TP-LINK Archer C2 is a powerful hub that supports a robust and extremely fast wired network, boasting five gigabit ports: one gigabit WAN port and four gigabit LAN ports, with speeds up to ten times faster than fast Ethernet connections. A USB port allows users to share printers, files and media with different devices on a local network, or remotely via FTP server.
No Compromise Security Features
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 of initial operation. Users can customize their security settings and set-up a guest network to further protect personal data.
