    not only improved speed on wifi, but once I ditch gateway functionality from ISP’s modem to use as modem only, even wire speed improved significantly.

    I used to have 500 mbps on my 300 mbps plan on rogers, I thought is more than what I pay for. With this as router speed test shows 800 mbps on wire and 600 on AX WiFi.

    I cannot say much for the range/coverage, I live in a tiny apartment but it seems to be way better than before.

    USB seems to be slow for disk shares, more towards USB 2 than the USB 3 speeds I hoped for.

    Setup and configuration is very straightforward. I have a 3,000 squarefoot house with four people and lots of devices – thermostats, cameras, 9 smart speakers, phones, computers, TVs, etc. The coverage and performance is excellent. I have gigabit fiber service and attached to the LAN port I got 880Mbps, which with protocol overhead is about as good as you can possibly get. I do not use the parental controls so I can’t say if they are any good or worth upgrading to the pro version.

    Comes with a CAT5E cable… which is not good enough to handle the speeds this device is rated for.

    I purchased this router for the advertised OneMesh, planning to install several throughout my home for complete coverage. If that’s what you’re here for, leave.

    OneMesh is severely limited, which they neglect to mention.
    -Multiple routers in a OneMesh setup? No.
    -Hardwired AP’s in OneMesh? No.

    It only works with a single router and a number of AP’s, and the AP’s all have to be connected to the router wirelessly. No taking advantage of any wiring you already have.

    Rather than the fast, seamless network I was hoping for I have an okay-ish network that would have benefit from the better wireless abilities of an additional router in some areas. Not impressed.

    On top of it, they require an app to manage basic functions like QoS and a paid subscription to manage some of the more advance features. I’d skip this one.

    This is not the TP Link of the past. The entire interface has changed & several features have been removed or dumbed down. Parental Controls is minimal, only offering full internet blocking or website blocking. No options like Access Control used to have. Access Control no longer offers scheduled control per device and blocking of specific websites. Instead it simply offers a blacklist of devices to your network. Completely changed. They also introduced a cloud based router configuration via a phone app. It requires an account. The useful features can only be configured this way and most features are locked behind a pay wall. This is how they will trick you into an affordable router. All this power and no control. Done with TP Link.

    I bought this router having read lots of great reviews. Upon receiving, the router was very easy to set up. I had to enable pass-through on my Telus router and then plugged it in and I was done.

    UI is nice, although a lot of the premium features like usage reporting and scheduled blocking are behind the TP-link subscription, which is quite expensive. Either way, the admin UI was much better than my current Telus-provided router.

    So all things were good until I started using it. For a premium/mid-range router, I was expecting much greater coverage than my free internet router. However, when I actually started using it I noticed the range was not as good and some areas of my apartment, which previously had coverage, were no longer in range. I tried to configure a few things on the router but it didn’t improve the performance. My apartment is small so I was surprised this was a problem.

    In the end, I reluctantly returned the router. I like many things about the router but ultimately its range let me down. When in range the router is great but it doesn’t seem to be able to reach the part of my home I need it to.

    This router works well if you plan to only use 5G. However it’s 2.4G is awful, devices disconnect a lot or run slow with that lower band.
    I have many devices that only use 2.4G, smart plugs and smart bulbs. My smart TV wants to use 2.4G over 5G because it’s not in the same room with the router, and when watching TV the connection will drop a lot. So I’m returning this piece of junk and getting my money back.

    Oh yeah, and the antennas are nonremovable. So you can’t upgrade the antennas to help the signal. I was really disappointed in finding this out.

    For this price tag I’d expecct something that actually works properly… I had a 2.4G only TP-Link modem/router combo 5 years ago that worked great. What happened to this brand?

    I bought the TP link AX55 router. The router app on android could not detect the router with all leds in solid blue and connected to the internet. The user interface is poor without proper advance settings. Returned the item and got a Asus AX55 router which has better UI and easier to configure.

    I have been using this for a couple of weeks now in a medium sized home. I replaced an old R7000 router with this (Because it had vulnerabilities but the new firmware causes all sorts of issues so had to use an old one for stability). This router has been flawless for all intents and purposes. 4K streaming on multiple devices simultaneously is no issue at all. I thought it wouldn’t not be able to handle high traffic because for the processor, they mention a Qualcomm but nothing about the actual speed of it, but it has handled absolutely everything and I have connected 30 devices to it and no problems. I’m very impressed, will definitely update this if things go the other direction.

    Overall I am very happy with this router. It has much better coverage than any router I had before. It has very good performance, with 50+ devices connected I can see there is an average 40% CPU utilization which suggests there is plenty of room to grow. The router can be managed both via Web UI and via a very polished App for smartphones. It is loaded, from basic QOS and SPI firewall, to some very convenient features like OneMesh, OpenVPN, Dynamic DNS and USB3. I connected an USB flash drive and in no time I had a network shared drive and FTP server with transfer speeds of 10+Mbps.

    I like that you can generate a QR ‘scan to connect’ code to share your network settings or to give easy guest Wifi access.

    One thing I really love is that you can give a custom name to every device connected to your router and you can also receive push notifications if any new device connects to your router. This combined with an improved UI make it very easy to monitor who and what is connected to your router at any time and the best part of it is that this is all part of the basic functionality available with the router.

    It offers also some optional features under a subscription that you get to trial for 30 days which I would have found very valuable when my kids were younger, for example Parental Controls with detailed traffic activity reports.

    You do not need the subscription to manage this router. From what I can tell you get all the functionality you would expect plus much more without the optional subscription, the only exception is DoS protection to stop Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks. This was a standard feature in my previous routers, but I am not sure I will ever really miss it.

    Overall I find this is the best router I ever owned and a great Wifi6 upgrade for my home network.

    Well maybe a little. I owned a TP-Link Archer C9 for about three years and needed an upgrade. I really do like the AX55 router. First I bought an AX3000 then realized TP-LInk just came out with the AX55. So I bought the upgrade and returned the first unit actually saving $10 overall. The AX55 has so much more tech than the AX3000 including Wifi6, USB3.0, HomesSield network monitoring, and better design for heat management.

    I notice the following differences between the AX3000 and AX55: Much better battery life on my S10 Galaxy Note (likely an extra hour per day) likely due to Target Wait Time (TWT) tech with Wifi6, network file transfers are much, much faster which is important to me as a photographer working with 43mb files all day long.

    My MSI laptop luckily has Wifi6 as well so I’m in super happy I discovered this new version. Make sure you use 20AX3000 for $20 off while it lasts. Hell of a deal and I can add One Mesh if/when needed for cheap.

    For some reason, when I plug an external 8-port gigabit Ethernet switch into one of the 4 LAN ports, this router will sometimes lose its connection to the internet (the middle LED turns orange) or its ability to serve DHCP clients. As well, its integrated 2.4/5 GHz 802.11ax signal doesn’t seem to propagate as well as the 802.11ac signals from my former 1-router 2-satellite system. The observed wireless connection speeds are also lower. I don’t have a large home, but it seems I may have to add a mesh node.
