Battle-Tested Processing Architecture

Quad-core means power. A leading-edge 1.8 GHz 64-bit quad-core CPU, three co-processors and 1 GB RAM work tirelessly at the heart of your network command center to deliver the power you need to frag with confidence.

While the three co-processors balance Wi-Fi demand, the quad-core CPU executes every service, thread and application to accelerate loading and deliver smooth gameplay.

Intelligent Traffic Prioritization

The dynamic optimization engine runs relentlessly to identify traffic, optimize throughput and eradicate latency for a premium quality of service according to standard presets or custom settings.

Prioritize gaming above all other activities for a tactical advantage during heated raids, PvP encounters and ranked matches. When you aren’t gaming, fast-track streaming to watch immersive 4K movies with stunning clarity.

Blistering Wi-Fi Speed

Get into the action with incredible AC5400 tri-band Wi-Fi speeds over the 2.4 GHz (1000 Mbps) and two 5 GHz bands (2167 Mbps). Three Wi-Fi bands make it easier to streamline your network and stay competitive in the heat of battle.

Dedicate one band to gaming traffic while the remaining two deliver high-speed Wi-Fi to the rest of your home, or enable Smart Connect and have the router zero in on the best Wi-Fi band for every device, intelligently driving them to peak performance.

Wi-Fi for Every Device

The gaming router harnesses MU-MIMO and Airtime Fairness to understand your Wi-Fi needs and serve every connection with speed and precision, maximizing total throughput and response rates.

Calibrated metrics and sophisticated algorithms determine how the router divides air time and distributes dedicated Wi-Fi streams to each device, leaving you to focus on taking down the opposition instead of fighting your allies for bandwidth.

Doubled Wired Connectivity

The Archer C5400X offers twice as many Gigabit Ethernet ports as most other routers. Plug your PCs, smart TVs and game consoles into one of the eight Gigabit Ethernet ports for fast and reliable wired connections without needing a separate switch.

Team two LAN ports using Link Aggregation to double connection speeds from 1 Gbps to 2 Gbps for Network Attached Storage (NAS) devices and PCs. Combine the WAN port with a LAN port to connect DOCSIS 3.1 modems for best-in-industry internet speeds.

Comprehensive Threat Protection

Defend your system from malicious threats that can sneak through downloads and file sharing. TP-Link HomeCare, powered by Trend Micro, protects every device from the latest cyber threats with powerful security, built-in antivirus and cutting-edge intrusion prevention.

Safer Browsing with VPN Access

Public Wi-Fi can be dangerous. Protect your data by accessing the internet through the router's built-in VPN server, which creates an encrypted VPN connection back to your home whenever you are using public Wi-Fi.

Stay safe while browsing the web and downloading files on public Wi-Fi as VPN Acceleration speeds up OpenVPN connections to your router at home.

Range and coverage specifications along with the number of connected devices were defined according to test results under normal usage conditions. Actual wireless transmission rate, wireless coverage, and number of connected devices are not guaranteed, and will vary as a result of 1) environmental factors, including building materials, physical objects and obstacles, 2) network conditions, including local interference, volume and density of traffic, product location, network complexity, and network overhead and 3) client limitations, including rated performance, location, connection quality, and client condition.

** MU-MIMO capability requires client devices that also support MU-MIMO.

Easy Setup and very good range 7/21/2020 10:37:43 AM

Pros: The Web-based setup was very easy and gives an easy way to access the router settings. The 2.4GHz band had the strongest signal while the 5 GHz bands dropped off a little with distance.

Cons: The printer server option to share a printer connected to the router did not work properly and I gave up. I was able to get it to work with an older Brother Laser printer after multiple attempts but after turning off the printer overnight, it did not recognize it the next morning. I tried another Brother Laser that is newer the next day and could not get it to connect at all. Decided that putting the document on a USB flash drive and then printing from another computer that was attached to a printer was much less of a hassle.

Overall Review: I would recommend the router to a friend but it is actually more router than I need since I am not a gamer.

Power'House' 5/8/2020 1:14:01 PM

Pros: Fast, simple setup, had very little problems understanding entire setup without manuals

Cons: Kinda big maybe. VPN instructions and setup is a little clunky but figured it out. The USB for Printer option was pretty much junk to me - it was easier to ethernet mine than setup an app on a laptop to manage my printer over USB - that's just pointless. Wifi and wired the printer works much better on ethernet.

Overall Review: This was easy out of the box and as technical as I wanted to get. I can power wifi speeds greatly now for my 2 story 2700sqft house. I moved all my video camera's to their own wifi and used QOS to improve my own streams and my work equipment over my kids streams. <grin> It's doing all that I could have wanted and more. Blazing fast - silent and hidden even though it appears like a spaceship hovering over my loft! YES would buy again and recommend to anyone and have.

Spotty 5G wi-fi performance 9/10/2018 7:07:02 PM

Pros: Excellent build quality.

Cons: -Spotty wi-fi performance on 5G spectrum.
-Second 5G signal drops out frequently.
-Definitely does not have better signal performance overall vs. my R8000p.
-Extra short power plug. Had to waste money on a longer, 6ft ac plug. The included one is about 3ft. Really?

Overall Review: Honestly, I'm sure much of this might be fixed in future firmware updates (MAYBE), but as us techs say with all expensive equipment purchases, these things should be near perfect out of the box... TP-Link, you guys had all of this time to test the signal/firmware out in several situations. But in my case, it's definitely a fail for now.

I did not have a chance to test out any other features. If a router cannot pass the most basic test, I'll leave it up to others to test it out.
