TP-Link recently launched its Homecare firmware platform for the C2300, C3150, and C5400. With the launch of this new firmware, the C3150 and C5400 went through a hardware revision, and today we are going to check out the V2 of the Archer C5400. HomeCare offers built-in antivirus control from Trend Micro along with parental controls and integration with Amazon Alexa.
The Archer C5400 uses the same hardware as many AC5400 class platforms. At its heart is the Broadcom BCM4709 operating at 1.4GHz across two cores, and is paired up with 256MB of memory and 128MB of NAND flash. Further, we have the BCM4366; one for each 5GHz band and a third on the 2.4GHz band. Hardware switching is done in the BCM4709 while expansion is available with two USB ports.
Apart from the hardware features of this platform, TP-Link has packed in plenty of software. These include WMM QoS and Bandwidth Control in addition to Port Triggering, UPnP, and DMZ controls. Access control gives you parental and local management controls. USB Sharing is setup for Samba, FTP, and Media Server supporting printers as well.
The MSRP of the TP-Link Archer C5400v2 carries an MSRP of $299.99 with a two-year warranty.
