Networking specialist TP-LINK today took the wraps of their latest router – a dual-band AC1750 model going by the unusual name of Archer C7.
The new device pumps out simultaneous 2.4GHz (450 Mbps) and 5GHz (1300Mbps) connections for 1.75Gbps of total available bandwidth, allowing users to reserve the faster band for media intensive applications and the slower connection for day to day networking activities.
Unlilke competitor devices, TP-LINK’s debut AC1750 router ships with three detachable antennas which deliver the 5 GHz band – three internal antennas are utilised for the 2.4 GHz connection, leading to a slightly less beautiful router, but a strong connection with reduced co-channel interference, according to the company.
As you’d expect, standard features include four Gigabit Ethernet ports, dual USB 2.0 ports for printer and hard drive sharing as well as IPv6, guest network support and the usual array of advanced configuration features.
The TP-LINK Archer C7 is shipping now at $149.99.
