TP-Link Archer CR500

details: AC1200 Wireless Dual Band DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Router
hardware type: Cable Gateway
date added: 2017-11-19
The Archer CR500 is 2-in-1 device that combines a high-performance cable modem and AC1200 Wi-Fi router into a single, elegant device to create a fast, reliable home network.
The Archer CR500 uses DOCSIS 3.0 and channel bonding to deliver throughput sixteen times faster than DOCSIS 2.0 and support download speeds up to 680 Mbps over coax cable.

Beamforming technology helps the Archer CR500 locate Wi-Fi devices and focus its wireless signal towards them instead of simply sending Wi-Fi signal in all directions at once. With Beamforming, Wi-Fi connections made by the Archer CR500 are stronger and more reliable, even as you carry mobile devices like smartphones and tablets from room to room.

Two USB 2.0 ports let you connect external drives to the modem router so you can quickly share files, photos, video and music wirelessly with devices connected to your home network.
