Introduction

The Archer lineup from TP-Link spans from the Archer C2 at AC750 to the Archer C5400 using the latest tri-band AC5400 tech. The Archer C3150 in-house today sits near the top of TP-Link's massive router lineup as a dual-band Wave 2 solution.

 

 

The C3150 too has been updated with a second revision of its hardware, an update that has brought it HomeCare capabilities, the same as the C5400 we recently reviewed. That said, the C3150 is a dual-band solution supporting NitroQAM and 1000 Mbps on the 2.4GHz band and 2167 Mbps on the 5GHz band.

 

It matches up perfectly with our test platform using the same AC3100 technology, so it will be interesting to see how this solution performs.

The specification sheet for this solution notes its four LAN ports and single WAN. The router supports a physical button for WPS, reset, and wireless on/off, in addition to its LED on/off button. The antennas for this solution are detachable using the RP-SMA connector and power is rated at 12v 5A.

 

The MSRP for the TP-Link Archer C3150 comes in at $219.99 with a two-year warranty.
