Don't let the TP-Link Archer C2300's appearance fool you. It may look like a mild-mannered, run-of-the-mill home router, but it has the heart of an online tiger. Aimed at home networking, the C2300 rivals highfliers like the Linksys WRT 32X and Netgear Nighthawk XR500 in performance. The closest thing to a home-networking version of the stealth fighter, it's powerful, yet blends in with the backgr
*Maximum wireless transmission rates are the physical rates derived from IEEE Standard 802.11 specifications. Range and coverage specifications along with the number of connected devices were defined according to test results under normal usage conditions. Actual wireless transmission rate, wireless coverage, and number of connected devices are not guaranteed, and will vary as a result of 1) environmental factors, including building materials, physical objects and obstacles, 2) network conditions, including local interference, volume and density of traffic, product location, network complexity, and network overhead and 3) client limitations, including rated performance, location, connection quality, and client condition.
**MU-MIMO capability requires client devices that also support MU-MIMO.
