TP-Link Archer C50 – AC1200 router login review
The Archer C50 operates over both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands, ensuring amazing wireless performance. Simultaneous Dual Band offers you the flexibility of two dedicated networks – with multiple times the bandwidth for your needs.
Simple tasks like sending e-mails or web browsing can be handled by the 2.4GHz band while bandwidth intensive tasks like online gaming or HD video streaming can be processed by the 5GHz band – all at the same time.

Some reviews: I bought this router TP-Link Archer C50 – AC1200 as it was listed as being Linux compatible by the manufacturer. This is not fully truthful. It will act as a wi-fi device and set up was fairly easy. BUT you CANNOT use the USB port as they do not have any utility drivers for Linux OS’s. So no wired printer can be accessed by wireless devices nor can you use an external HD for file sharing. Will never buy this brand again.
I only found this out by contacting tech support. Chat tech said that device does not support linux and asked where I saw this statement in an email reply on issue as a chat follow up as tech needed to get an engineer involved. So I sent them link to there own page. NO NEW EMAILS following my reply. LIARS their specs clearly state Linux support. I’ll be surprised if they let this review post since it has to be reviewed per their T&P.
I am using 2 TP-Link Archer C50 V.2 Dual Channel Routers for a small business providing great Wifi to 30 devices across an acre if property, and Wired service to 2 seperate buildings utilizing a CAT5 cable. These do everything need. It was easy setting them up with one Primary DHCP (Master) cabled to a second used as a Wireless AP. Flawless thus far. A GREAT BUY at appx. $50.
