Product Overview Wave 2 AC Wi-Fi for More Bandwidth
With NitroQAM Technology, Archer C2300 boosts the Wi-Fi Speed up to 1625Mbps on 5GHz and 600Mbps on 2.4GHz. It can perfectly handle your favourite activities like gaming online, watching 4K movies, or sharing large files.

64-Bit CPU and XStream Processing for Smoother Performance
With XStream processor architecture, the Archer C2300 dedicates one processor to each of its Wi-Fi bands. These processors handle Wi-Fi traffic, freeing the router’s powerful 1.8 GHz dual-core 64-bit CPU to take care of everything else.

MU-MIMO and Smart Connect for Better Connections
MU-MIMO lets the Archer C2300 talk to several devices at once, and Smart Connect automatically places each device on the best available Wi-Fi band. With both working together, everyone can hop online at the same time without having to wait, and each device can always get the best connection.

RangeBoost for Far-Reaching Wi-Fi
RangeBoost amplifies the router's ability to detect and receive Wi-Fi signal from devices that are located farther away. Stream, game and enjoy what you love anywhere in your home, from your favourite spot on the couch to the comfort of your bed.

Media Sharing for More Fun
USB 3.0 and 2.0 ports make it easy to share photos, videos, and music on your home network.
When away from home, a VPN allows you to securely access NAS drives and other devices connected to the router through USB.

VPN Acceleration for Fast and Stable VPN
Archer C2300 is not only supporting safe and secure OpenVPN and PPTP VPN connection, but also using VPN Acceleration to boost the connection speed. All of the data you're transmitting is guaranteed to be secured by these VPN functions.

Intuitive Tether App for Easy Management
Setup and manage your Wi-Fi through the free TP-Link Tether app, available for both Android and iOS. Tether’s simple layout lets you quickly access all of your Wi-Fi settings on your phone or tablet.

HomeCare for Protection, Safety and Fast Wi-Fi
You don’t need to buy a separate security box device like Cujo or Circle to add security to your network. TP-Link HomeCareTM is powered by Trend MicroTM* and comes with antivirus, parental controls and QoS.

Antivirus
Every device that uses Wi-Fi is protected by HomeCareTM. That includes things that don’t normally have protection from cyber threats, like Wi-Fi cameras, smart locks and game consoles. It even protects devices that your friends use at your home.

Parental Controls
Whether you want to block websites, set time limits, see which sites your kids are using or pause the internet, you can with HomeCareTM. And you can do it all from the Tether app.

Prioritize What Matters
Choose which devices or activities you want to prioritize with Quality of Service (QoS). In just a few taps, you can make sure your laptop or streaming movie is first in line for Wi-Fi or Ethernet. Features • Faster Wi-Fi Speeds: Dual band speeds up to 2.25Gbps, 1625Mbps on 5GHz, 600Mbps on 2.4GHz.
• Powerful Processing: 1.8GHz Dual-Core Processor with co-processor.
• More Devices: MU-MIMO achieves 3X efficiency by communicating with up to 3 devices at once.
• Higher Efficiency: Beamforming technology delivers highly efficient wireless connection.
• Ultra Range: Range Boost + Power Amplifier + High-performance Antennas, giving you even greater coverage.
• Smoother Performance: Smart Connect intelligently assigns devices to the best available band.
• Better VPN Connection: OpenVPN & PPTP VPN server supported and VPN Acceleration speeds up VPN connection to ultra-level.
