TP Link Archer C5400X Router Reviews:

The TP Link Archer C5400X’s Broadcom BCM 4366 Wi-Fi chip has a 1.8 GHz quad-core processor with three auxiliary co-processors together with 512MB of storage space and 1GB of RAM. Its triband design has a single 2.4 GHz transmitter (up to 1Gbps) and two 5GHz ones (up to 2.167 Gbps each) that can manage a theoretical 5.3 Gbps of data flow under suitable conditions.

Testing in our Utah facility using Ixia’s ixChariot software to simulate a busy network, showed the Archer C5400X to be one of the highest-performing home-networking devices available. It blew away the gaming-router competition with a top speed of 859.5 Mbps at 15 feet, 16 percent and 53 percent, specifically, in front of Netgear’s Nighthawk XR500 Pro Gaming Router (715.4 Mbps) and Linksys’ WRT32X router (544.5 Mbps) at the same distance.

Actually, the TP Link Archer C5400X’s only real competitor on raw speed was its little brother, the TP Link Archer C2300 router. It moved 939.6 Mbps at 5 feet, and 682.3 Mbps at 15 feet, yet costs less than half of what the gaming routers go for.

At 5 feet, the Archer C5400X supplied 733.9 Mbps versus the Netgear XR500’s 704.7 Mbps and the Linksys WRT32X’s 527.6 Mbps. As a matter of fact, the only location where the Archer C5400X lagged was at 100 feet, where it offered 447.1 Mbps versus the XR500’s 524.3 Mbps, a margin of 15 percent. The Linksys WRT32X was well behind the two at 247.0 Mbps.

At our test’s terminal distance of 150 feet, the TP Link Archer C5400X showed its stuff with a throughput of 383.3 Mbps, 11 percent ahead of the XR500’s 342.2 Mbps and the C2300’s 342.5 Mbps. Once again, the Linksys WRT32X trailed the pack, this time at 302.4 Mbps.


TP-Link Archer C5400X should work well in an old house with numbers of obstructions, with the router punching 853.7 Mbps of throughput via a metal wall, compared with the 667.3 Mbps that the Netgear XR500 was capable of and the 559.0 Mbps for the Linksys WRT32X. It similarly led the way with the ability to move 832.3 Mbps through a soundboard wall but trailed the Archer C2300’s 921.7 Mbps on this task.

TP-Link Archer C5400X did well at transmitting a Wi-Fi signal via a ceiling to the second floor of the lab with 786.2 Mbps of bandwidth available upstairs. That’s 15 percent more throughput than XR500’s 670.5 Mbps.

TP-Link Archer C5400X came close to filling my 3,500-square-foot home with Wi-Fi while left two small dead spots in corners of the basement. With my iPad Pro in hand, the router had a range of 100 feet, just short of the Netgear Nighthawk XR500 Pro Gaming Router’s 115-foot range.

TP Link Archer C5400X worked with no hiccup for a week and seemed to help when I watched truly talented League of Legends gamers go at it on Twitch. Later, I played a few rounds of Fighter Patrol 42 and Real Racing 3. The response was fast with stutter-free video.

TP Link Archer C5400X AC5400 Gaming Router

There’s a new entry in the best gaming routers in town and TP-Link’s Archer C5400X makes the competition eat its digital dust with excellent throughput and range together with the security of having its own antivirus software. It’s more expensive than Netgear’s Nighthawk XR500 Pro Gaming Router and Linksys’ WRT32X, but the C5400X is more than worth it based on its sheer speed alone. It deserves to be next to any serious gamer’s computer because its top performance can be the difference between winning a battle and ending up drifting through space.

    While the TP-Link AC4500 is by no means a low cost solution, it’s worth every penny spent on it. This router was amazingly simple to set up with the plugging in of the antennas the most difficult, yet even that job is simple enough to accomplish. One password with the auto tri-band setting allows a variety of computer devices to log on automatically. I have eight devices in my household and no issues with any of them finding and hooking to the router after assembly & installation. The eight cable nodes also eliminated a device in my network & simplified the network wiring to the rooms in my house! Router traffic routing has been no issue, is now faster than my previous 2.4/5Ghz router & has been flawless in it’s operation. I’m on Spectrum & the only issue there was their notification that I needed a modem upgrade which they sent to my residence, & bumped my line speed to match my equipment without cost! I highly recommend this router, it seems expensive but research will show it’s really a mid priced router & provides a much stronger signal throughout my single level home.
