TP Link Archer C50 Router Reviews:

The TP-link Archer C50 router was released in 2014. It really is driven by MediaTek MT7620A @ 580 MHz chipsets, 64 MB RAM, and 8 MB flash. The AC1200 router works with IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/ n/ac standards, and the utmost velocity that you could get with Archer C50 is usually 300 + 867 Mbps.

Throughout our testing, the TP-Link Archer C50 was unable to achieve the speeds that were advertised. Already noted, we tested the router over a 250Mbps connection, however, we were unable to achieve more than 85Mbps while connected through a wired network. In our tests, we were unable to get speeds more than 65Mbps because of the wireless signal intensity. We initially believed that Xfinity was experiencing technical difficulties, but subsequent testing throughout the day consistently produced the same results.

When plenty of devices are sucking up bandwidth at the same time, things start to break apart even more. We found that our internet link dropped to 47Mbps when we were streaming some music through our Apple HomePod. While we were watching YouTube, the temperature dropped even lower. Even with only one device linked, whatever we tried, we were unable to get even a fraction of the stated internet download rates.

Even while this seems awful, and it is certainly not good, one bright spot exists in the range of options. The home in which we tested the TP Link Archer C50 router is around 2,000 square feet in size, has three stories, and TP Link Archer C50 router is placed on the center floor. We had anticipated that the signal strength and range would be inadequate from the minute we took the router out of the box. We were completely mistaken.

We were able to maintain the same download and upload speeds across our entire home. Our tests were carried out in the basement and upstairs bathroom, and we did not detect any slowdowns, except the already sluggish signal. We were pleasantly impressed by the length of the Archer C50’s shooting range.

If you have a high-speed internet link of more than 50 Mbps, TP Link Archer C50 router is probably not worth the investment. For those who have DSL, and especially those who do not have a router integrated into their modem, you may get some fairly good range out of this router, assuming that you do not have overmuch devices that need simultaneous access to the internet, which is not always the case.


When you’re choosing for a router in this price range, you shouldn’t expect to get high-end performance, but when it can’t even deliver the advertised speeds on a broadband connection it’s a problem. However, if you don’t have a broadband connection, and you won’t be bottlenecked by the router’s limitations, the long range is enough to warrant a recommendation. Just don’t expect to do much in the way of multi-device streaming, it’s just not built for that.

    I have recently switched from Verizon Fios to Cox bundle. everything is good but looked like COX is charging too much ($9.99/month) for the Wi-Fi router. So I purchased the TP-Link AC1200 wireless Dual band router. The installation instructions are very easy to follow and I have setup my two Wi-Fi Networks in matter of few minutes.I did a speed test on the Cox internet (100 mbps) and to my astonishment, the speeds are 22 mbps on the 2.4GHz (Guest ssid) and and an astonishing 98 mbps on the 5GHz (Main SSID) networks. These numbers were 9.7 and 19 on the previous router supplied by Verizon. I have almost 8 different devices using the same network and I did not notice any lag. I would recommend this router to any one.
