TP-link Archer C54 with missing Gigabit ports

Surprised that well know networking equipment manufacturer like TP-link even in 2022 is introducing new routers without the gigabit ports to Indian market.

Archer C54 AC1200 Dual Band Wi-Fi Router is one such example. Launched in May 2022 & missing gigabit port.

Makes it unsuitable for isp plans of speed of 100mbps or more. Yes you wont be getting even the 100mbps speed which is a 2022 standard for fiber connection in India. Max speed you’ll get in this router would 95mbps.

So if you have plan of 30mbps or 40mbps or 50mbps or 60 mbps or 75mbps then only this router gonna give you 100% speeds.

Specification Review of Tp-Link C54 AC1200 dual band router:

  • 867mbps 5ghz wifi speed
  • 300mbps 2.4ghz wifi speed
  • 4+1 fast ethernet port with 100mbps speed
  • Single core processor
  • 4 antenna with beamforming support.
  • WDS/Range Extender mode supported

Still we would recommend you to buy gigabit routers only regardless of your isp internet speed.
