TP-Link Archer VR2800 Modem Router Review


TP Link Archer VR2800 Router Reviews:

Similar to many wireless routers, the VR2800 isn’t much to look at; simply a fairly nondescript black slab with four antennae sticking up at the back, four Gigabit LAN ports and a VDSL2/ADSL2+ compatible socket, plus a couple of USB 3 sockets on the left-hand edge.

There’s plenty going on inside, though, and when it comes to Wi-Fi specifications, this router is up with the most expensive models on the market.

Over 5GHz it’s capable of delivering link speeds up to 2,167 Mbits/sec thanks to 4×4 stream MIMO and 1024QAM support. It’s slightly less impressive over 2.4 GHz, but will still achieve up to 600Mbits/sec with compatible devices and adapters.

You won’t can connect at those speeds with any single device, simply because no computer that I know of comes with 4×4 MIMO– most have 2×2 at best, with 3×3 adapters a rarity. However, connected to the 3×3 adapter in our test laptop– a previous-generation MacBook Pro 15in– performance was excellent.

In our close-range tests, we found throughput speeds reach 109MB/sec (872Mbits/sec) on the download, which is almost as fast as Gigabit Ethernet and the fastest close-range speed of any router we’ve tested.

In the long-range test in our kitchen location it wasn’t rather as impressive, but still returned an average download speed of 10.8 MB/sec. Even though this is slower than mesh systems like Google Wifi or BT Whole Home Wi-Fi can delivering at range, it’s still enough to deliver access to every single megabit of most people’s broadband connections in most parts of the home– even with BT’s fastest 74Mbits/sec broadband service installed.

USB transfer performance hit the high notes also, with sequential reads from our USB 3 thumbdrive reaching a heady 41.8 MB/sec, which is absolutely fine for casual file sharing and occasional backups.

The TP-Link Archer VR2800 may not be able to offer coverage to match the ideal mesh Wi-Fi systems, but performance for a single router is unimpeachable and the price is reasonable considering the features on offer. If you plan to replace the router your ISP supplied you with, the VR2800’s performance and selection of features make it a fine option. It wins a deserved Best Buy award.

    Update, speed and range of its wifi is phenomenal, raised to 5 stars!
    I bought this to replace a 3 month old mesh system we’d bought. I thought the mesh, with its second access point, had decent range but we had huge issues with our devices not wanting to let go of the access point they first connected to, would rarely jump over to 5ghz, and speeds were literally 2-10% of what our modem provides 50% of the time. So, I bought the TP-Link AX50 for the same price and for day 1 at least, I’m extremely pleased with the router’s performance. Where the mesh would struggle to push 5mbs, i have 240mbs (on a 200mb plan) and even outside at edge of 10000 sqft lot with router behind 2 walls of a brick house i get 200mbs on an LG v40 cellphone (V40 doesn’t even support ax/wifi 6). Having 14 devices on the network, 3 of which streaming -no lag whatsoever. The bad -but not a deal breaker; to access QOS settings you have to have a subscription, which is ridiculous but perhaps a good idea to keep the price low now that i think about it. The router works great without the QOS, i havent tried using any subscription options, but i do miss being able to limit bandwidth of gaming systems or other data hogs on the network. Another negative (without subscription) is not being easily able to deny individual devices access to the internet, like printers, which should be included. The menus within the admin access configuration are better than most ive used but still are disorganized. Physically, the router is small and very light weight, and looks really compact and sleek, the LEDs can be turned off on schedule too, but they arn’t going to give anyone epileptic fits like the Nighthawk’s strobe lamps will, so i left them on. I did not use the tether app to config mine but using ethernet cable setup was a breeze although Safari and Firefox on a mac will complain about the unsecure connection to the router when you try to login to router’s configuration, which is another negative and also why i have the router configuration access set for wired local access only. Hopefully i wont need to connect to it every 10mins like the mesh system. So far im really impressed. I have an IT background which made things easier for me but i’m no pro. People with no IT knowledge can configure this unit but dont forget to turn off UPnP and do change the admin password to something highly complex. Also consider changing the dns servers manually for privacy from your isp. TP-LINK website has a great detailed pdf manual for this router too.
