[Amazon Canada] TP-Link Archer C7 AC1750 Dual Band $89.99 + FS

One of the most popular budgeted router is on sale!
It's a good choice for people who recently switch to Carrytel/Cannet without router from their modem.
This has solid reputation based on online reviews and past RFD posts.

Aside from Amazon, also available from:
Best Buy
Dell
The Source (price down to $80.99 if you have PSP)

IIRC lowest price for these are around $70?? But great router even for $100. Bought mine from Amazon for $120 back in the day and have 0 regrets. Initial set up was a bit finicky..

Had this for a couple of years now once a week it needs a reboot and the 5ghz is spotty. Turned it to a repeater a month ago.

For $130 you can get the C9, advantages include AC1900, beamforming, dual CPU, USB 3, etc

(camel x3 says that's close to lowest price which was $119 a while back)

If you plan to buy a router and use it for a few years, might be worthwhile to invest in something a bit more future-proof.

I have the Touch P5 which has exactly the same internals as the C9 except with the added feature of a touch screen. I can easily vouch for the Touch P5 and say that it's an extremely stable router, virtually no disconnects (so far) and is super easy to use. The touch screen is super convenient. I purchased it also for $129.99 on Amazon.

I've also used the cheaper AC1350 (Archer C60) model and would advise to stay away from it. The build is cheap lightweight plastic, and I was constantly getting dropped connections. Don't buy the Archer C60 if anyone was considering it.

I didn't have a good experience on this router either. I bought this about a year ago to expand wifi coverage in my house and found 5GHZ performance is weak and inconsistent. Also requires reboots every few weeks on stock firmware. My old Netgear R7000 on DD-WRT firmware has been far more reliable.

I don't think that really is any more future proof, just better.

For stability, have you tried OpenWRT ?
