Intelligent Traffic Prioritization

The Archer C5400X conquers lag, immediately eradicating it from your gaming experience. Its dynamic optimization engine automatically identifies gaming traffic to give you the tactical advantage during heated raids, PvP encounters and ranked matches. When you aren’t gaming, fast-track streaming to watch immersive 4K movies.

Blistering Wi-Fi Speeds

2.4 GHz
5 GHz
5 GHz

Get into the action with incredible AC5400 tri-band Wi-Fi speeds over the 2.4 GHz (1000 Mbps) and two 5 GHz bands (2167 Mbps). Three Wi-Fi bands make it easier to streamline your network and stay competitive in the heat of battle.

Dedicate one band to gaming traffic while the remaining two deliver high-speed Wi-Fi to the rest of your home. Or enable Smart Connect to have the router zero in on the best Wi-Fi band for every device, intelligently driving them to peak performance.

Full-Throttle Wireless Performance

The Archer C5400X employs MU-MIMO and Airtime Fairness to balance the requests of every device with speed and precision. Calibrated metrics and sophisticated algorithms determine how the router divides air time and distributes dedicated Wi-Fi streams to each device, leaving you to focus on taking down the opposition instead of fighting your allies for bandwidth.

*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.   

*Use of MU-MIMO and 1024-QAM requires clients to also support those functions.

*A basic TP-Link HomeCareTM, powered by Trend MicroTM, package is included for 3 years from date of activation at no additional cost. It includes Parental controls, Quality of Service, and Antivirus. Deactivation of HomeCareTM will disable certain controls and protections. For a complete list of HomeCareTM functions, go to www.tp-link.com.
