How does this router perform with my wireless network?
Suitable for networks which handle many wireless devices, the Archer C3150 is able to effectively boost the performance of your wireless network. NitroQAM technology with 4-stream increases the wireless performance on the Archer C3150 by up to 25 per cent, allowing you to stream 4K media to multiple devices or play online games with a stable high speed connection.

What can MU-MIMO do for my wireless network?
The Archer C3150 uses MU-MIMO (Multi User – MIMO) technology with a 1.4GHz processor, which optimises your Wi-Fi network. This is achieved by allowing your router to communicate more efficiently with connected devices. This communication is done simultaneously rather than one device at a time, as found on non MU-MIMO routers. A benefit of this is all devices can run at optimal speeds, with reduced latency.

How many wired connections can this router support?
With four Gigabit LAN ports, you can connect up to four Ethernet compatible devices simultaneously. Non-Wi-Fi devices like smart TVs, game consoles, set-up boxes, media players, NAS storage devices etc. can now have their own exclusive dedicated ports. This helps make your Archer C3150 your digital home hub. These ports can be used to provide a stable transfer of data between devices that require high network usage, or to attach devices that do not have the ability to connect to your wireless network.

You can use the USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports to connect USB-enabled devices, such as external storage drives and printers, to your TP-Link router and share them with other users via Wi-Fi - thereby creating a media server.

Am I able to manage my network using this router
Included with this router is the TP-Link Tether application, which can be installed to iOS or Android portable devices. TP-Link Tether provides the easiest way to manage your network, from setup to parental control. Tether provides a simple, intuitive user interface to see what the status of your router is, who's online and what their privileges are.

Alternatively, these controls can be accessed using the intuitive web browser, letting you control your network form any web browser.
