The Web GUI across many of the TP-Link solutions are the same. The C5400 shares this with its counterparts, and as such, we start with this rather familiar front page.

Diving right into the wireless settings, we have the option during setup to name each of the three bands to our liking.

The dashboard gives a quick glimpse at the status of your network. As you can see, I have five wired clients connected along with a single wireless client. To the left, we have the menu that we will go through in a moment, but at the top right, there are software options for the LEDs, along with a reboot option.

The basic settings allow you to customize wireless SSID and passwords.

Not many routers on the market include the option for a 3G/4G modem to be connected to the router. In fact, off the top of my head, I can only think of ASUS as the other vendor to do this. There is also the option for storage via USB and printer sharing.
