The Archer C55 creates a reliable, fast network via 802.11ac Wi-Fi technology. With its simultaneous dual-band signal, use the 300 Mbps 2.4GHz band for everyday activities like streaming music, sending emails and shopping online, and the 867 Mbps 5GHz band for more demanding tasks, including HD streaming and lag-free gaming at the same time.

The Archer C55's Gigabit WAN Port enables bottleneck-free access bandwidth, and multiple Fast Ethernet LAN ports provide your PCs, game consoles, IPTV and other wired devices with a quick, stable network connection.

Three high-performance external antennas transmit a strong signal to maintain faster Wi-Fi speeds over greater distances for a reliable network across your home.

Installation is simple, thanks to an intuitive web interface and the TP-Link app, Tether. It's easy to set up the router and manage your network settings via Tether on your smartphone.

Advanced Security protects your home network with SPI Firewalls and WPA2 encryption.
