What does this router provide?
The TP-Link Archer C3200 provides maximum wireless coverage and stability around your home. The six high-performance external antennas greatly increase the Archer C3200's range and signal stability. Beamforming technology further improves the router's coverage by helping it locate wireless devices to form stronger, more reliable connections. A powerful 1GHz dual-core CPU and three co-processors easily handle the demand made on the Archer C3200's network when multiple users are browsing, streaming, and gaming all at the same time. External hard drives can connect directly to the Archer C3200 via its USB 3.0 and 2.0 ports, making it easy to share files, photos, music and video across your network. The Archer C3200 is also equipped with four Gigabit Ethernet ports that enable blazing wired speed 10x greater than Fast Ethernet, helping connected gaming consoles, PCs and smart TVs achieve their best performance.

What can I expect from the wireless connection of this router?
The Archer C3200 uses tri-band technology to run three separate Wi-Fi channels at once, creating a network that can connect to more devices without a trade-off in performance. This makes it ideal for low latency online gaming, smooth 4K streaming and extremely fast file-sharing. The Archer C3200 offers two 5GHz bands with data rates of up to 1300Mbps and a 2.4GHz band of up to 600Mbps. With the tri-band 'Smart Connect' feature, the router automatically selects the fastest of the three available frequency bands for every device - depending on the device's speed, signal strength and how busy each band is. This helps prevent slow data transfer and connectivity between your device and the router.

What wired connections are available on this router?
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 C3200 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, printers and 3G/4G dongles, to your TP-Link router and share them with other users via Wi-Fi - thereby creating a media server.

What network management can I use with this router?
Included with this router is the TP-Link Wi-Fi application, which can be installed to iOS or Android portable devices. TP-Link Tether provides the easiest way to access and manage your router with your iOS or Android devices. 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.
