4K Streaming and Gaming with Antivirus for Every Device

Optimized for stronger performance, the Archer C3150 V2 delivers powerful Wi-Fi up to 3150 Mbps for 4K streaming, real-time broadcasting and online gaming. It also comes with TP-Link HomeCare™ powered by Trend Micro™*, which protects all of your devices from cyber threats and keeps your family safe.

The Archer C3150 V2 connects more devices to faster Wi-Fi over stronger connections, and its antennas are designed to create far-reaching Wi-Fi coverage. Airtime Fairness balances Wi-Fi between older and newer devices, and Link Aggregation helps you create Ethernet speeds up to 2 Gbps for NAS devices and external drives. You can also manage your network remotely through the Tether app, and easily install firmware upgrades through the web interface.

Product Specifications

  • Dual-band AC3150 2.4GHz (up to 1000 Mbps) and 5GHz (2167 Mbps)
  • 4-Stream and NitroQAM Technology for 80% faster Wi-Fi
  • Powerful processing for smoother performance
  • MU-MIMO for connecting multiple devices at the same time

Intelligent Antenna Array for Ultimate Range

Each of the Archer C3150 V2’s antennas are designed to send powerful Wi-Fi across your home and keep all of your devices connected without slowing down your Wi-Fi.

With more antennas, the router can send and receive Wi-Fi to and from more devices at the same time, letting you game on your mobile devices anywhere in your home, from your favorite spot on the couch to the comfort of your bed.

More Throughput for Connecting Multiple Devices

MU-MIMO has been fine-tuned for better performance, providing more than twice the throughput across multiple MU-MIMO devices. It lets the Archer C3150 V2 talk to several devices at once, while Smart Connect automatically places each device on the best available Wi-Fi band.

With both working together, everyone can hop online at the same time without having to wait, and each device can always get the best connection.

Powerful Processing for Smoother Performance on Every Device

With XStream architecture, the Archer C3150 V2 dedicates one processor to each of its Wi-Fi bands. These processors handle Wi-Fi traffic, freeing the router’s dual-core CPU to take care of everything else.

All this extra brainpower keeps your Wi-Fi running smoothly so everyone in your home can enjoy what they love most, whether that’s watching Netflix, gaming online, streaming your favorite video—or all of the above.

Do you have you a question about the TP-Link Archer C3150 2167Mbps (5GHz) 1000Mbps (2.4GHz) Dual-Band Wireless MU-MIMO Gigabit Router (V1.0)?

Q: I need to change the wifi password on my TP-Link ArcherC3150. I tried by using my pc (wifi connected) and of course lost my signal. Had to get someone to help me re-enter the password that came with the router. My son said run direct ethernet cord from the router to the pc that is connected to the modem .open my home page click on wifi, delete the factory code, type in my new password, and save. I am so afraid to try again, Is this the correct steps. I need to have my wifi working and I am not that tech smart. Thanks in advance. Betty Lou
