    Replaced orbi 3 cubes with this, as it kept rebooting cubes. Holy smokes was I missing out. Glad to have bought it. 2 x 5.2GhZ and 1 x 2.4. Keep all three bands separate, not in mesh configuration. Have 3 floors, router is in garage, and we have full coverage through the house and 1/3 acre. Live in subdivision and 4 houses are within range, it chose channel to run bands on with no interference.Farthest point I am pulling 550Mbps down and pushing 430Mbps up on a 1000Mbps modem. Have 48 devices connected with no issues. Super easy to install.Would have liked if the monitoring software included. But ifs were fifths we all would be messed up 😉

    This thing has a SUPER strong WiFi signal. I live in a 2 story 2200sf home and this blankets 90% of it with very good signal. It’s located on the first floor of the house due to data cabinet location and it’s not really the best location, but I am not moving all my cables. Anywhere in the house within 60 ft of the unit in all directions it gets excellent signal. It even blankets my pool area outside with great signal, allowing me to remove my old outside access point from my network

    This thing has a better signal and range than even Cisco business grade WiFi routers from just a few years ago. It absolutely screams as well; setup is very easy and straightforward (no app needed) too. I’ve had it now for a week or so, and it hasn’t hiccupped at all. If I have any problems with it I’ll append my review, but this thing replaced a Synology router which I loved, which replaced Apple’s last router, and this thing beats the tar out of both of them. I rely on a solid router 24/7 for IT work from home, and 4k streaming/gaming at night, and this thing crushes it all without complaint. Well worth the price.

    I’ve had this AX6600 router hooked up for about 2 weeks and have had no connection issues during that time. Getting max connection speeds from my ISP without tinkering with the settings (Max speed from ISP is only 225Mbps, well below the max speed this router is theoretically capable of). Upgraded from an older TP-Link router. Easy setup, everything worked and connected easily, including my desktop PC on Wifi 6 with WPA3-personal. 2.4ghz band is stable (broken/non-functional on my previous tp-link) allowing use of wifi printing and IoT devices again (finally!). Smart light switch connected easily, smart thermostat (Honeywell T9) needed a software update. Apple, Android and Windows devices had no issues.Pretty basic usage as of this writing. Smooth streaming and video conferences. User interface is nice, similar, but a step up from the previous TP-link router I had. Automatically updated to the most recent firmware on first setup, saves me the hassle of doing it after. I haven’t tested many of the features of this router, but I will be playing with some of the additional features and update this review accordingly. Great experience so far.

    This router was installed on October 15th, and it continues to work well. From what I’ve read, most complaints are related to setup issues. It’s obvious you’re impatient. When I plug my router into my modem, the light turns red. Upon opening the instruction manual, it will provide you with the WiFi password, follow the wizard instructions. It’s that simple! The light still shows red, so the best thing to do is to be patient, have to wait 5-10 minutes for the modem to recognize my new router, and then the light will turn blue. You must be patient when setting up, the connection may take some time.Except for the fact that people complain about reviews, I’ve had it for three months and continue to love it. It never disconnected, I walked about 3 houses on my iPhone and tested the WiFi connection, and finally, it disconnected. WiFi is too good and powerful. Due to the size of my house and family, I have around 20 devices. None of them have ever disconnected. Furthermore, my own server runs smoothly. I have set up port forwarding, and my server was never down for more than 60 days, and not a single connection was lost! Using Zoom for meetings and working at home has never caused me any issues. In the past, I have had issues with Netgear and Linksys. It was the first time I used TP-Link, so I was hesitant to buy it as it seemed so unfamiliar to me. For the first three months I used the TP-Link router, I fell in love and I would keep it for ten years. Kudos to TP-Link!

    Replaced a SMC WiFi router that I had since 2007. When Comcast up’ed my service from 100MB/s to 200MB/s and it randomly started dropping connection (though it should have been able to handle it). The AX6600 has not dropped a single time in over three weeks. WiFi signal is stronger so I was able to remove the two pair of powerline adapters.In the Address Reservation DHCP service assignment list for all my peripherals the one complaint I had that would have made this easier to handle during setup and for monitoring later would be to be able to edit the ‘Device Name’ because if it could not determine what the device was it would assign ‘unknown’ or ‘—‘ which is no help.Update 10-10-2021: After playing around with the router setting I found you CAN edit the name of each client on your network that is not automatically discovered. After logging in click on “Network Map”, than click on “Client” . There you will find a tiny edit symbol next to each client. Click on that and edit name with some limitations.This took awhile to find: If you find that when you check the Wireless Setting “Hide SSID” you lose network connection. Windows 10 has an option that needs to be checked that says connect even if the SSID is disabled. It is in the “Network and Sharing Center” under “Wireless Properties”.I have an HP Notebook DV6500 that is more than 10 years old and would not connect when WPA2/WPA3-Personal security was selected but worked fine on WPA/WPA2-Personal setting. The Notebook uses WPA2 802.11g. I ran the “Intel Driver Support Assistant” and it reported it was up to date. After exchanging messages with TP-Link Support they say to avoid other compatibility issues some older WiFi adapters may not be supported when using WPA2/WPA3-Personal security. My solution was to move the Notebook from the main network to the guest network and select WPA/WPA2-Personal there.

    So far this has been a great router and I have had no problems. Everything works great. It was really easy to set up imo. Additionally, since I read all the comments here about firmware issues, I did the firmware update and everything works great still. So I am not sure what they are doing and why it is a problem. I have 15+ devices connected at once as a fyi.

    I replaced a 7 year old Netgear NightHawk 1750 with the AX6600. The Netgear worked well for years but recently was not giving me full speed (I have 1 gbps fiber) and I always had terrible dead spots in my 2 story, 3000 sq ft home. I did speed tests throughout my house with the Netgear and found some rooms with barely 1-3 mbps speed. I installed the AX6600 and did the same tests. The difference was staggering. The kitchen, where I was getting 1-3 mbps went up to 150. Outside on my lanai I was getting 50+ mbps. I then installed two of the TP Link AC 1900 Wi-Fi extenders, creating a MESH network and voilà! One extender placed upstairs and one placed in the back of the house by the kitchen.I can now get 150-200 mbps 50 feet away from the house behind my garage and 200+ at the corner of my fence 50+ feet away. There is not a room in my home under 200+ mbps. And it is very intuitive to set up. Once I opened the TP link app, it paired the AX6600 with the two AC 1900s and created the MESH network. Would highly recommend this if you want a reliable MESH that doesn’t cost $700+ like the Netgear and others. But even by itself, the AX 6600 is awesome if you have any home under 3000sq ft.

    1st TP link Archer ax90 router I ordered did not work, packaging looked a little rough. Spent some time on the phone with TP Link tech support and Amazon ended up sending me a new one. I was originally not happy with the performance of my ASUS rt-86rtu I had for about 2 weeks due to the good reviews on you tube, so I sent it back. I then went back to the old standby for advice on all things technical, Reddit! Due to all the great reviews for TP Link on Reddit I thought I would give the Archer ax90 a try. I’m 90% sure the first one was damaged in shipping. This being the case I did a straight exchange and I am glad I did! This was so simple to set up compared to the ASUS and it just flat out works. I was getting about 600mbs out of my ASUS over wifi with 1200mbs Xfinity plan comming into the modem/router , tested over Ethernet cable out the back of the router directly to my laptop. Both using a Arris surfboard C33 modem. I was standing about 8′ away with nothing in-between the router and my S21. I thought those numbers were low, and I was right. After getting the 2nd TP Link Archer Ax 90 set up in the exact position. I am now averging 900mbs over wifi with one top speed of 1025mbs over wifi to date. It also has a much much better range than the ASUS did. The ASUS had a great app and software interface, but everything else, it’s TP Link for the win! Hopefully it stays solid and I get alot of top performance use out of it. I had never used a TP link product before and I was not let down. Thank you Reddit bros, you usually never steer me wrong! My house is over 4000sf and the lowest speed I have screen so far in the house was 535mbs in the furthest basement corner. Can’t go wrong with this router. I have a feeling there are more TP Link products in my future.

    Prior to this router, I was using another TP-Link product, the Archer C7. It worked just fine for connecting the various Ethernet connected things in the house, but the WiFi performance was lacking, as I could not get a solid enough signal on the 5ghz (high bandwidth, fast). The signal even in my bedroom (which is not even 20 feet from the router) was only usable on the 2.4 ghz band (aka the band that “Slow” WiFi works on). The 5 ghz band suffered constant issues with dropped packets, videos buffering, you know, the usual symptoms of a poor WiFi signal. Another reason for me to switch is that the C7 only supports the 802.11ac WiFi standard, and the new WiFi 6 standard came out a year or two back. I wanted to have equipment compatible with the newer standards, and be ready for a possible upgrade to gigabit internet speeds, so this TP-Link Archer AX90 router was the one I settled on since it has a 2.5gbps WAN port (The C7 only has a 1gbps WAN port, which is usually fine for most people).Now that I have the new Archer AX90 (aka AX6600) set up and configured similarly to the C7, right where the C7 used to be, my new tablet which supports WiFi 6 (aka 802.11AX) connects with a strong signal (not missing any bars) on both of the 5ghz bands this router offers (another improvement over the C7, it has 2x 5ghz bands which helps with reducing traffic congestion on any one band).Speed tests using my new Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 (Samsung’s top-of-the-line tablet as of this review) show that on both of the 5ghz bands I’m getting the full 100mbps download and ~12mbps upload speeds I expect from my current internet service plan (that’s what I pay for, my equipment can handle more than that but I can’t afford the prices of the higher speed plans).I was surprised by how stable the round-trip message time (called “ping” in the IT industry) is compared to the “gold standard” of a wired Ethernet connection. Usually WiFi has a lot of “jitter” in the ping, which means that if your previous data packet had a ping of say 50 milliseconds (50 ms), the next packet might have a ping of 25 or it might have a ping of 75, or anywhere in between and even occasionally higher than that, and the next packet could be anywhere in that range as well. When you’re gaming, what you need is a STABLE connection with as little jitter in the ping as possible, because the game is interpolating between the data points it gets to calculate critical things like where you are or where your shots are coming from in a first person shooter game.Now I don’t know specifically how they did it, but this AX90 router is delivering a WiFi connection that has a lot less jitter than I was expecting from a WiFi connection. By “A lot less”, I mean that the level of jitter is similar to a wired Ethernet connection (but still measurably higher by a few ms), meaning that if you’re just gaming casually or playing turn-based multiplayer games you might be able to get away with using WiFi. I still say that you should always strive to get a wired internet connection to your gaming device whenever possible, but this WiFi 6 is coming very close to what I’d consider acceptable for hardcore gaming use (with only a few WiFi devices in the range of the AX90 at least).Speaking of the environment I tested the AX90 in, I have not tested the performance in a congested WiFi environment. I’m expecting that performance will degrade, but I don’t know by how much, or if that degradation will result in a level of performance that is not acceptable to you should you be considering the purchase of this router (the latter is a matter of personal opinion).I have also not tested performance on the 2.4ghz band, but I imagine it is at least as good as the performance of the C7, which was “slow but acceptable”. The lack of speed is due to the nature of 2.4ghz WiFi, and these days basically any router from any brand should be able to put out the most the 2.4 ghz band can offer.I doubt that the radios in the AX90 are any stronger than the ones in the C7, because there are FCC limitations on such things, so my theory about why I can now get a 5ghz signal when I couldn’t with the C7 is that the AX90 has “beam-forming” technology. Beam forming is a technology taken from cell phone towers, and it is essentially a way to create an electronically steered directional beam of radio waves, or when receiving signals it can use related techniques to preferentially amplify signals coming from a given direction and cancel out signals coming from other directions. This helps it “punch thru” issues like multipath interference and make the same radio power output act as if it is a higher power radio transmitter, without consuming any more energy (instead of the radio signal going “everywhere”, it mostly goes in one direction).Another advantage the AX90 has is OFDMA, which is supposed to help it serve large numbers of devices, however my house is in a suburb and there’s only 3 people living here so I don’t have many devices to worry about (and I’m the only one in the house with more than one device that connects via WiFi, meaning generally only one of my devices are active at any one time).I did leave the option enabled in the settings, because it wasn’t causing me any issues, I just don’t know if I’m getting any benefit from it.Setup of the new router was easy for me since I’m the designated “tech person” in the house and I always at least check the manual to make sure there aren’t any “gotchas” to setting up something new.Setup should be easy for just about anyone capable of following technical instructions. Do NOT attempt to set this up without reading the quick start guide and the user guide, especially if you have internet service above 1gbps.Just interpret the instructions mostly literally and you’ll be fine. If you have trouble, I’m sure that tutorials are available online (check YouTube or your preferred tech info source).Here are some setup tips:1. If your WiFi devices can’t see your new AX90 router when searching for a WiFi network to connect to, and it’s powered on (doesn’t really even need to be connected to the internet) try going into the settings and un-checking the “Target Wake Time” box. On my router, this option was off from the factory, but I turned it on to see if it did anything, and all it did was make it impossible for my new tablet to detect the router (a Samsung Galaxy Tab S7, which supports WiFi 6 and is the device I used for testing WiFi connection speeds).2. You can set up a preferred time for the router to reboot, with options for “monthly”, “weekly”, and “daily” schedules. The option is in “advanced settings”, almost all the way at the bottom. If you choose to do this, pick a time when you’re either not at home or sleeping. This also applies to the router automatically checking for, downloading, and installing firmware updates.3. If the bright blue status light on the router is annoying due to where the router is placed (say in a bedroom), you can turn that off in the settings (in “advanced settings”, all the way at the bottom). You can also set a time range for when you want the light to be off, if you don’t mind it being on while you’re awake (it will still turn on if something is out-of-the-ordinary, say if you lose internet connection).4. You don’t “have” to sign up for TP-Link’s “Homeshield” service to make the router work as “just a router” (I didn’t). I’m not in a situation where I have need of a VPN, let alone things like DDoS protection. However, if you’re operating a small business on the web, you might find such services attractive (I have no experience with operating a business, so I wouldn’t know).
