TP-Link Archer C2 AC750 Wireless Router & Archer T4U AC1200 USB WiFi-Adapter
If last year we were mainly talking about dual-band wireless routers with support for the 802.11n IEEE standard, now is the time to analyse and test a mainstream router with support for the new 802.11ac standard. I know there were routers with support for this standard since last year, but officially this standard has only been approved in January 2014. In other words, starting this year we will see a plethora of new Wi-Fi Dual-Band routers with support for the 802.11n and 802.11ac standards.
I will not go into technical details regarding the differences between the two standards, but I will mention that the 802.11n standard is available on both frequencies (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz), and the 802.11ac standard is only available on the 5 GHz frequency. Also, even though our logic will make us believe that the new standard is automatically faster than the older 802.11n standard, it’s the manufacturer’s implementation that will be the decisive factor in this equation.
As you have already found out from this article’s title, today we will be testing the TP-Link Archer C2 AC750 Wi-Fi router and the Archer T4U AC1200 USB adapter. In case you deem interesting a Wi-Fi Dual-Band router with support for the 802.11ac standard at an affordable price (70 USD / 55 EUR), lets review on the following page its most important specifications.
