As the market stands right now, nearly every vendor has an AC3200 solution on the market. In past reviews, we have seen solution from Linksys, TRENDnet and Netgear, while today we add yet another AC3200 solution to the list from TP-LINK. The Archer C3200 is, as it sounds, an AC3200 Tri Band router.
The TP-LINK Archer C3200 shares the same platform characteristics found in all three AC3200 solutions we have tested. This means we have a dual-core 1GHz processor covering six 802.11ac streams and three 802.11n streams, but no mention is made about the amount of RAM or flash included on this model, but as the previous three tested platforms have confirmed, we should have 256MB of memory and 128MB of flash.
As I have stated many times in the past, AC3200 solutions give the consumer the best mix of both old and new technologies offering two 5GHz bands that can be split along with a single 2.4GHz band for legacy and long-range devices. The TP-LINK C3200 offers a "Smart" option as do many AC3200 solutions allowing the router to determine the best band for a device based on signal strength.
Looking over the specifications, we find the Archer housing four-gigabit LAN ports next to a single gigabit WAN. A single USB 3.0 along with a USB 2.0 port allow FTP, Samba and printer access over the network. The wireless bands are split into a single 2.4GHz 802.11n network capable of 600Mbps via TurboQAM, while both of the 5GHz bands are capable of 1300Mbps.
The TP-LINK Archer C3200 carries a MSRP of $259.99 with a two-year warranty.
