Archer C24 AC750 Dual-Band Wi-Fi Router — The Review

We’ve seen this wifi router all over the place recently so we thought we should give it a review to see if it stands up to the hype. Let’s start with an overview of the features.

High-Speed WiFi

All routers claim to have high-speed WiFi access. However, the AC750 dual-band delivers on this promise. It’s great if your household downloads high-res documents or watches a lot of HD videos.

Lots of Coverage

It has 4, yes 4, antennas to cover your entire home reliably. The majority of routers at this lower price point have a couple of antennas that provide decent but not full coverage like the Archer C24.

Guest Network

If you have a lot of guests, this router, like most popular ones, also supports a Guest WiFi solution that also protects your host network. Whether you work on confidential documents or simply don’t want unknown users on your primary network, the guest network capabilities are a great feature.

3-in-1

In short, this router can handle wireless, wired access point, and range extender options.

Parental Controls

If your children love being on their screens past their bedtimes, parental controls can help you stop them. Once set, they won’t be able to connect to the router, preventing your kids from losing sleep over TikTok, YouTube or online games such as Fortnite. 

IPv6 Support

The latest Internet Protocol is version 6, hence why IPv6 support is a necessity these days! The TP-Link Archer C24 supports IPv6 out of the box.

HD Streaming Compatible

Whether it’s Netflix or Amazon, this router can handle multiple devices streaming HD movies simultaneously.

The Quick-Glance Pros

  • The design complements your interior aesthetic while still saving space. You can mount it on the wall or place it on a table.
  • HD streaming is seamless. No more annoying buffering!
  • You get great value for money.
  • An effective replacement for your old router.
  • It’s incredibly easy to set up.
  • It provides phenomenally fast WiFi speeds.

The Quick-Glance Cons

  • Whilst we didn’t run into anything worth mentioning, a few people on the forums have mentioned that the 5Ghz network is currently unreliable.

Is It Worth It?

If you are looking for an affordable no-frills replacement router, then the AC750 Dual-Band by tp-link is a great choice. The connection speed is excellent and the extra guess network you receive is brilliant considering the affordable price!
