The Archer C5 operates over both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands, ensuring amazing wireless performance. Simultaneous Dual Band offers you the flexibility of two dedicated networks – with multiple times the bandwidth for your needs. Simple tasks like sending e-mails or web browsing can be handled by the 2.4GHz band while bandwidth intensive tasks like online gaming or HD video streaming can be processed by the 5GHz band – all at the same time.
With 3 external 5dBi antennas serving the 5GHz band and 3 internal antennas serving the 2.4GHz band combined with higher quality antenna technology, you can maintain high speeds across greater distances. This provides you with incredible wireless coverage and reliability from anywhere in your large home or office.
With one gigabit WAN port and four gigabit LAN ports, speeds can be up to 10× faster than fast Ethernet connections. The Archer C5 is a powerful hub to support a robust and extremely fast wired network.
With the two multi-functional USB 2.0 ports, you can share a printer locally and files & media with networked devices or remotely via FTP server.
TP-LINK's Tether App provides the easiest way to access, manage and share your router's resources with your iOS and android devices. From setup, to parental control, to media sharing, Tether provides a simple, intuitive user interface to see what the status of your router is, who's online and what their privileges are.
Guest Network Access provides secure Wi-Fi access for guests sharing your home or office network.
Included in the resource CD, TP-LINK's optimized configuration utility can help users complete the entire software installation and wireless network settings in just a few minutes.
Archer C5 supports IPv6, which is foundational to the next generation Internet and enables a range of new services and improved user experiences.
