I'm just now starting to see a brand called TP Link? Seems to be many products in the wireless routers section at all retailers. I might be late to the party.

Can anyone comment on this brand's quality in relation to routers or other products?

Was it previously another name or something?

It's a mid range brand.

What would you consider Linksys or Netgear?

Linksys, Netgear, D-Link, Belkin are all well established and reliable brands. There's nothing wrong with TP Link, they've been around for a long time, but you can do better for a few bucks more.

TP Link has been around since 96, not new by any stretch. As stated they are a midrange brand. I prefer Netgear routers but had a TP Link Powerline wifi extender and it worked well.

Linksys used to aspire for higher, but when they were bought out by Cisco they became their “home” brand. All the brands mentioned are roughly equal. I’ve used TPlink switches for years.

Being Cisco's "Home" brand isn't an insult.

I beg to differ... but that's beside the point (and I'm a decade retired out of the IT industry, not a lot of exposure these days).


TP Link has held the title for the best bang for the buck router (Archer C7) for a couple years now. I installed one in my folks home a few years back and have needed to do ZERO remote support. I check on it/update it when I'm local though.

I have a TP Link Archer C3150 AC Router and it is a fabulous piece of equipment. I've used Linksys, Netgear, ASUS and by far TP Link as been the easiest to use, least issues, and longest range in my two story house.
