Archer AX73—The Top Structure and Full Bandwidth Build for an Ultra-Fast 5.4 Gbps WiFi Network

    SHENZHEN, China – TP-Link® today announced Archer AX73, an AX5400 Dual-Band Gigabit WiFi 6 Router, packing excellent coverage performance and the HomeShield security system. Equipped with the top structure 4T4R and HE160 on the 5 GHz band, Archer AX73 enables users to enjoy the ultra-fast 5.4 Gbps WiFi that can stream multiple 8K videos without buffering.

    With 5400 Mbps WiFi 6, Archer AX73 is made to handle multitasking easily. Whether you download a AAA game at warp speed, stream media with flawless quality, process files cross devices through the air, or connect everything on the network, Archer AX73 always offers more than enough bandwidth to back a smooth experience. The HomeShield service kit includes Antivirus, Parental Controls, QoS, and Home Network Scanner to deliver expert-level care for managing your network. OneMesh enables further flexible expansion with high-quality seamless roaming.

    Warp Speeds Transfering 1 GB within 5 Seconds

    Archer AX73 comes with the advanced WiFi 6 standard, including 1024-QAM, 160 Mhz bandwidth, and a higher symbol rate, pushing total WiFi speeds up to 5.4 Gbps. With the top structure 4T4R on the 5 GHz band, Archer AX73 perfectly matches the clients with 3T3R or higher structures, like Mac and XPS15, enabling users to make most out of the full performance from their high-end clients.

    “We’ve added WiFi 6 features to the 5 GHz band, including the 160 Mhz bandwidth. This band alone provides users up to 4.8 Gbps bandwidth. According to tests from our lab, this bandwidth allows transmission speeds at 200+ MB/s between clients, enabling you to transfer a 1 GB file to another client in 5 seconds wirelessly,” said Allen, the engineer behind Archer AX73. “If it’s still hard to imagine, you can think of a traditional hard disk in most NAS, whose read/write speeds is just around 100 MB/s. Want to drop a file to another computer? WiFi now does this even faster than a Gigabit wire. Just enjoy a total wireless network which is ultra-fast and super-responsive.”

    Extensive Coverage with 4T4R

    Archer AX73 features 6× high-performance antennas, Beamforming, and high-power FEM that combine to generate a steady, far-reaching WiFi signal to every corner of a house. Furthermore, its 4T4R structure not only improves speed but also provides more streams to transmit clear data to the clients, adding more range performance. Compared with a mid-level 2T2R WiFi 6 router, Archer AX73 doubles the ability to adapt the signal diffraction to create a broader coverage for more directions.

    HomeShield Powered by Avira®

    Today, routers are the gateway of smart homes and are easily becoming a channel through which hackers infiltrate to exploit vulnerable IoT devices. Given that these attacks either go through or directly target routers, it is mission-critical that the secure positioning of routers is reinforced. With Avira’s “engineered-in-Germany” AI technology and robust antivirus experience, HomeShield on Archer AX73 starts by securing the home WiFi gateway and continues to protect the home network and all devices.

    HomeShield provides versatile features to enhance network experience:

    1. Home Network Scanner
      Detects potential threats and provides advanced warnings of security issues.
    2. Parental Controls
      Limit online time and block inappropriate websites according to the unique profiles you create for each family member.
    3. Quality of Service (QoS)
      Prioritize your devices so that the most frequently used and data-demanding ones get the bandwidth they need.
    4. Comprehensive Reports
      Gain insight and better control of your home network with detailed weekly/monthly reports of your WiFi.

    Customers can upgrade to HomeShield Pro and unlock more security features:
