Management GUI




The Archer C3200 carries a solid WebGUI that is easy on the eyes and streamlined. Above, we have the landing page that includes an overview of the router and its status.





Moving on, we take a quick look through the basic menu items. Above, we have the wireless settings with both the SSID and password listed for each network.




Next up, we have the USB sharing settings that gives access to storage and printers.




The advanced menu takes things into further detail, as you can see with the Status menu being a starting point.




The Archer C3200, as mentioned in the introduction, is capable of using a "smart connect" feature for those that want to enable it. The TP-LINK also allows you to change channel and width for each band, and unlike other routers, you can lock in 40MHz on the 2.4GHz band with this solution.




Looking a little deeper into the sharing settings, you can see the Archer has access for both SMB, FTP, and Media sharing.




Bandwidth control is how TP-LINK addresses QoS.




Lastly, we have Traffic Statistics that when enabled can give you an idea of how traffic is moving through the router.
