The New Wi-Fi Standard for an Advanced Online Experience

The Archer C25 comes with the latest wireless standard – 802.11ac. This advanced Wi-Fi is designed for high-traffic online activities and can help to run applications at triple the speed of the previous 802.11n standard. The result: faster, stronger and more capable Wi-Fi to unleash all your wireless devices.

Four Antenna Design for Better Coverage

Four antennas make all of your connections more efficient and stable. PA amplifies Wi-Fi power and LNA increases the receiving sensitivity to enlarge Wi-Fi coverage for your home.

Easy Parental Control

Supervise children and staff with responsible access, controlled by parents or administrators. Use URL blocking to easily set up a black or white list and limit the level of web access.

Guest Network Access

Allow guests to join your Wi-Fi network, while protecting your privacy. Make sharing easy, maintain security.

Easy Setup and Management

An intuitive, multilingual web interface (currently available in English, German, French, Italian, Polish and Turkish) makes PC setup of the Archer C25 easier than ever before. We also provide a new mobile interface for your convenience. Put control at your fingertips with Tether, an app that lets you manage network settings - including parental controls and media sharing - from any Android or iOS device.
