TP-Link still embraces the classic design for the Archer C7 AC1750 model, with its external antennas. Many other developers have removed them. The external ones are 5dBi which serve the 5GHz band and there are three internal antennas for the 2.4GHz range to be sorted out. Not only does the router have a Gigabit WAN port and four Gigabit LAN ports, but also two USB 2.0 ports and WPS buttons, wireless and power.

The Conclusion would be’¦?
The TP-Link Archer C7 AC1750 has a lot to give to its user seeing as how it is a fairly affordable broadband wireless router. It is the perfect ratio between price and what the product has to offer, seeing as how you will have everything a higher-end model promises. It is a compact and nice looking device which offers fast configuration and a friendly interface. Keeping the antennas was a good idea which makes it look cooler that it already is.
What we liked
Adding up to the other features, Gigabit LAN and WAN ports are another plus and the interface is also easy to understand and use. In the tests, the read is very important so 50MB/s at 802.11ac is really good. The router’s range is impressive too, as it can reach up to 25m 802.11n speeds with a downstream of 18 MB/s and 11 MB/s for the upstream.
What we did not like
Even though we were in the same room with the router and had a solid 1300 mbps, the transfer did not go over 14MB, not even with its new firmware update. Also, at the weakest 802.1 ac struggled at distance and got approximately 16 MB/s download and 7.6 MB/s upload speed.
The Final Conclusion
The TP-Link Archer C7’s average speed is 802.11 ac, it provides very good downloading speeds which are the most important aspects. You also get a dual-band 802.11n router thrown in, which will be a great help.
