Bottomline: TP-Link Archer D9 is a solid wireless router with wide coverage. It delivers decent transfer and download speed at a competitive price point.

Archer D9 has an advanced Beamforming technology that enables it to focus WiFi signal to connected devices even over a long distance. It is also equipped with the shielded cover on the internal components and Ethernet ports that reduces signal interference for wired or wireless connections.

 

The TP-Link AC1900 Archer D9 wireless router has 802.11ac Wi-Fi technology. Archer D9 delivers up to 1900Mbps data transfer rates. The simultaneous dual band offers you the flexibility of two dedicated networks and avoids interference for a better online experience. This comes with three detachable external antennas and high power amplifiers which make it powerful enough to boost Wi-Fi coverage throughout your home.

 

The router has 1 GHz dual-core processor, one USB 3.0 port, and one USB 2.0 port. Using the USB ports you can access and share a printer locally and files & media with networked devices or remotely via the router’s FTP server. The router enables you to create guest network for guests sharing your home or small office network. For children, it has Parental Control that allows parents or administrators to establish restricted access policies for children or staff. The wireless router supports IPv6 means it is a future-proof device for your network.

 

We tested the signal performance of router using an isolated ‘N’ network with the router connected to two machines, one wirelessly and the other with cable. Using the ‘Qcheck 3.0′ benchmark we checked average throughput with a 1000 KB payload. In this test, it clocked at the speed of 72 MBPS. We transferred 61 MB of data from one machine to the other and here too, it took 12 seconds. It performed well in every test, except the file transfer speed test. Using Wi-Fi Network Analyzer, we tested the wireless speed of the router and it resulted in 86 MBPS of speed and -42 dBm of signal strength. The router can be setup easily and delivers good wireless speed, but signals weaken due to obstacles.
