A photo of the Archer C3200 covers the front of the box as we look at the packaging. To the left, we have marketing information including its wireless capabilities.

Scope of delivery includes an Ethernet cable, power adapter, and reading materials.

Looking at the Archer C3200, we find this solution to be quite small when compared to previous AC3200 solutions. Each of the six antennas are built into the chassis similar to the Netgear Nighthawk X6.

The front edge of the Archer houses all the LEDs that there are quite a few. To the far right, we have buttons for WPS, Wireless, and the LED control.

Extending all of the antennas, you can see this TP-LINK device is much more conservative in its design than previous solutions we've reviewed.

The rear of the router houses a single USB 2.0 and 3.0 port on separate ends of the rear I/O. In between, we find a WAN in blue with four yellow gigabit LAN ports.
