Where To Buy

A perfect balance between price, features, and performance. The TP-Link Archer A7 (AC1750) is probably the best router for the money. It´s not the fastest, largest or most powerful routers you can buy, but for the price under $75 (in the time of writing), the Archer A7 is a great deal.

Although its range is disappointing, the Archer A7 should be enough for a small to midsize home and includes parental controls and Quality of Service (QoS) software along with the ability to thwart online attacks.

With a great price-to-performance ratio, simple setup and management, and plenty of connectivity options on its backside, the Archer A7 is a router many will turn to for affordable home networking needs.


By PCMag – 60% 

The A7 delivered fast scores on our close-proximity throughput tests, but its long-range performance was spotty and its file transfer speeds were very slow, most likely due to the use of USB 2.0 technology.


By Blacktubi – 85% 

TP-Link Archer A7 is an affordable and a really stable product. It will be a significant step up from the ISP-provided router.


By PC Verge – 84% 

The TP-Link AC1750 Smart WiFi Router (Archer A7-V5) offers the fastest throughput speeds we’ve seen recently from a budget router. It now supports Alexa integration and is very easy to install and has plenty of settings.
