TP-LINK Archer C9 AC1900 Dual Band Wireless AC Gigabit Router Review


TP Link Archer C9 Router Reviews:

The Archer C9 AC1900 is an 801.11 ac router. It can get up to 1300 Mbps on the 5 GHz band and up to 600 Mbps on the 2.4 GHz band for a total of 1900 Mbps. The C9 has beamforming, which promotes a more concentrated signal and a longer range. It has four separate gigabit LAN ports for hardwiring devices.

On the 2.4 GHz network at a distance of 5ft, we can max out what the frequency can transmit (and then some): with 64.97 Mbs download, and 96.35 Mbps upload. The dependability of the 2.4 GHz was a bit shoddier at 30ft, however only for uploads. When we moved outside we actually noticed a gain in download speed at 67.18 Mbps, yet the upload gone down by nearly 2/3’s, to just 34.26 Mbps up.

5GHz results were a whole other story totally. When tested from a distance of 5ft, the TP Link Archer C9 shattered every record we have on the books at a blistering 289.97 Mbps download, 483.37 Mbps upload. By some means the 5GHz network downloaded faster than the wired link, blowing away our expectations and the competition’s chances all in the same breath.

At a distance of 30ft the same reliability issues that plagued the 2.4 GHz tests reappeared, but the dropoff wasn’t as immediately noticeable. At 30ft, the TP Link Archer C9 posted a download rate of 181.40 Mbps download/132.40 Mbps upload.

Switching over to the 5GHz spectrum bumped this figure up considerably. Again at a distance of 5ft, our Nighthawk X6 review showed an average download speed of nearly 210Mbps, with an upload speed of 280Mbps. At a distance of 30ft this number fell off a bit to 170Mbps down/169Mbps up, but that’s to be expected on the 5Ghz spectrum, which can suffer more significant signal loss when transmitting via walls or doors.

The TP Link Archer C9 even trounced its closest competition, the Netgear Nighthax X6, on the wired performance front.

When plugged directly into the source, the TP Link Archer C9 pumped out a staggering 556.59 Mbps download/416.66 Mbps. Just as it was with the X6, this is still a long ways off from the 990Mbs down/897Mbps we get when piped directly into our fiber modem, but the router still shines bright under the fact that it’s still significantly cheaper and faster than the competition with no breaking a sweat.

  1. Sean Greaves

    I read all of the reviews for the AC1900 and started to think it was too good to be true because there were too many positive reviews. Well- it is! I unpacked the box, used the supplied ethernet cable to connect it to my existing FIOS modem/router combo, plugged it into the wall, and the rest was an adjustment to my online settings. The quick install guide that is included is simple to follow. On the TP-Link website, I was able to create my password and customize my network name. For those with FIOS, you must go onto your web browser and log into the router setting using its address Under the “WIRELESS SETTINGS” tab, click on the “BASIC SECURITY SETTINGS” and “TURN /WIRELESS OFF”. This will allow the TP-Link to take priority and connect to the internet. You may have to press the small ON/OFF button on the far right to refresh the TP router with the new settings. I hope this helps make it simple to connect.
