MU-MIMO: Efficient Wi-Fi for Every Device

MU-MIMO technology serves up to four devices at once, reducing wait time, increasing Wi-Fi throughput for every device, and making each stream more efficient.

NitroQAM™ and 4-Stream

The 5GHz band is enhanced with NitroQAMTM (1024QAM), boosting Wi-Fi speeds by 25% to significantly improve performance.

4-Stream technology runs 4 data streams on 5GHz band to increase overall speed by 33% compared to standard routers.

Versatile Connectivity

As a powerful DSL modem router, the Archer VR2800 supports super fast VDSL or ADSL broadband of up to 100Mbps, as well a variety of other connection types. The LAN/WAN port accepts connections from Cable Modem or Fiber Modem, and both of the two USB 3.0 ports support 3G/4G dongle connections for a perfect main or backup internet connection.

1GHz Dual-Core CPU + 2 Co-Processors

The Archer VR2800 adds a dedicated processor for each band to manage Wi-Fi traffic, freeing up the router's 1GHz dual-core CPU to tackle more consuming tasks.

The preconfigured "Easy setup" list of providers on this router do not list our ISP, Vodafone, but, after choosing BT as the provider and inserting my user name and password it configures and connects in a few seconds to Vodafone Superfast Broadband (FTTC) perfectly. However, the hoped for gain in performance over the Vodafone Wi-Fi Hub did not happen, due in part I feel, that Vodafone have throttled the "up to 47.64Mbps" to 29Mbps. Other than that, the VR2800 is stable and without the drop outs we suffered using the Vodafone router. Wi-Fi is good, even to our garden chalet approx 25mtrs away. The MU-MIMO is excellent as we have as many as 14 conected devices on the network at various times without problems. The configuration settings are quite straightforward and fairly easy to find and set. Overall,a well made and unobtrusive piece of kit.

This is the best route we have had. We have TalkTalk fibre and the router they supplied was very good but we kept getting drop outs. Their fault tracing did not show any faults, so I decided to go back to TP-Link. I have not had a single drop out since. The speed is fantastic, and the range is superb. I definitely would recommend it.
