Archer C2

End of Life

AC900 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router

  • Supports 802.11ac standard - the next generation of Wi-Fi
  • Simultaneous 2.4GHz 450Mbps and 5GHz 433Mbps connections for 883Mbps of total available bandwidth
  • 3 external antennas provide stable omnidirectional signal and superior wireless coverage
  • Full gigabit ports ensure ultrafast data transfer speeds
  • Why 802.11ac

 

Excellent Wireless Speed with 802.11ac

Coming with the next generation Wi-Fi standard – 802.11ac, 3 times faster than wireless N speeds, Archer C2 delivers a combined wireless data transfer rate of up to 883Mbps. With 433Mbps wireless speeds over the crystal clear 5GHz band and 450Mbps over the 2.4GHz band, the Archer C2 is an ideal choice for various applications.

802.11ac 5GHZ433Mbps

802.11n 2.4GHZ450Mbps

Concurrent Dual Band for Lag-Free Work

Simultaneous 2.4GHz and 5GHz 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 han-dled 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.

Stable Omnidirectional Signal and Superior Coverage

With 2 external antennas combined with higher quality antenna technology, you can experience excellent wireless performance with stable signal in every direction and high speed across greater distances. This provides you with incredible wireless coverage and reliability from anywhere in your large home or office.

*Maximum wireless signal rates are the physical rates derived from IEEE Standard 802.11 specifications. Actual wireless data throughput and wireless coverage 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.
