TP Link has surprisingly good customer service.
I walked in to their office in Markham looking for a PCI slot bracket for a NIC the previous owner had lost.
They gave me a brand new card in sealed retail packaging along with pens, mouse pads, and a bunch of other TP Link swag!

This router is pretty good too

Keep dropping the 5ghz band. Tried Everything. No luck. Swap for an Asus.

I think this was fixed in a recent update.

I have the router and use the iPhone app for network management. When I was having errors in the app the customer service spent a couple months diagnosing and running tests with beta firmware to solve it. We eventually found out that some of the configurations the router can do won't work well with each other. They know what the problem is and are fixing it for the next firmware release. Best customer service I've ever had with a software company.

Had so many issues with this router. I ended up buying a Google Wifi a week ago, and the difference is night and day, even though the Google unit is AC1200, versus the AC1750 of the TP Link. With the Google one, 4K streams load MUCH faster, and there doesn't seem to be a bottleneck when many devices are using the internet. not to mention no worrying about selecting the 5GHz or 2.4GHz band. The unit automatically does it. You get what you pay for, I guess.

Google wifi has 2 kinds, one set vs three sets, which one you bought?
Is amazon best place to buy it?

I just set mine up and I think it’s great for the price.

I love the app.

The parent control is great, kids are wondering why you tube doesn’t work as I blocked it on different times and many other sites. And if they don’t listen to shut gagets down I can shut them down from the app.

I can now set my vpn on the router as before the Rogers modem won’t let you do it.

Any way for the price you can’t go wrong.

Anyone else experiencing a blank page via the link? In fact, any of Amazons router pages are not showing anything at the moment

I just bought 1 unit, not the 3pc set. It covers my entire house.

The pages seem to load if I refresh them a few times.

I really only need wifi for my iphone for browsing, my ipad which I seldomly use, and to hook up an old printer via usb for wifi operation. I do not stream video wirelessly.
I think the AC1200 C50 is all I really need because my PC and smart TV are wired with cat6a directly to my router.
Can someone explain the overall benefit, if any, of choosing the C7 over the C50 if wifi is a non issue? I know the C7 has 2x USB ports which is nice but what does Fast ethernet vs gigabit mean?

I bought the three unit Google Wifi and I couldn't be happier with it. I've got fantastic and FAST coverage throughout my house regardless of how many devices are connected. Administration of the network is simple and installation was a fair amount easier than I'd anticipated.

YMMV I guess with individual units. Both my TP-Links (C7 & C8) have been amazing. It's very well reviewed as well.
