If just the best is good enough for you when looking for home office or home entertainment networking, then you will find a perfect match in the TP-Link Archer AX50 router. This router comes with the latest Wi-Fi 6 technology and delivers solid speeds consistently. It’s also equipped with premium features that you won’t find in more affordable routers, but will quickly become indispensable once you get used to them. These include link aggregation, lifetime parental controls, anti-malware software, and USB connectivity.
This sleek fibre router has a two-tone glossy and matte black finish, textured grills, six small LED indicators and four adjustable antennas. As far as inputs go, it has four gigabit LAN ports complemented with a WAN port and a USB 3.0 port. These ports come with a feature called link aggregation. A simple explanation of this feature is that you can connect one device to two ports to boost the network throughput. This is especially handy during gaming where upload and the download is more crucial to an excellent gaming experience, and leftover bandwidth makes this possible
The router also comes with TP-Link’s HomeCare suite of parental control, anti-malware and QoS software. The anti-malware function allows you to monitor security alerts and quarantine infected clients, while you can assign bandwidth priority with the Gaming, Streaming, Surfing, and Chatting presets of the QoS settings. Parents will find the Child, Pre-Teen, Teen, and Adult presets with age-appropriate website filters for gambling, social networking, gaming, chat rooms, and other adult content ultimately helpful
