Been using this for 3 weeks now as an AP. Works well haven't noticed any dropped signal yet. Increased my Wi-Fi speed so I get my full 50/10. Since I just signed up for that PIA VPN, I do notice that it doesn't support VPN settings. Not a big deal for since I still use my Belkin N600 with tomato as my main router.

Good deal. I remember newegg was running the same deal back in the Black Friday with $20 MIR. Hard price of $79.99 is very good this time.

Nice deal! Now I'm second guessing my Netgear Nighthawk purchase for 170 over the weekend (Newegg targeted coupon) that's arriving today. I realize that the C7 isn't quite in the same league, but is the R7000 really $90 better? Probably not to me, unless if it can do a better job of getting through old, thick plaster walls.

No third-party firmware support for the AC radio and there likely never will be.

How does this compare to the NETGEAR R6250? I want one of the 2. Which would have longer range?

I won't compare those 2 models since the Nighthawk is in another class. For AC1750, it prolly has the best price in its class.

That is for the AC radio. The b/g/n does have support. Read the content in the links before posting.

SmallNetBuilder has some great comparison charts of throughput vs. signal strength. If you're going to be dealing with a weaker signal in the far corners of an old home, I'd stick with the R7000 over the TP-LINK.

Here's a 2.4ghz (802.11.n) comparison with the TP-LINK, Asus RT-N66U (best N router) and R7000. You can get the same chart for 5ghz as well, but I figure 2.4 matters more for you since 5ghz takes a real hit going through structures.

Almost all the TP-Link stuff uses hardware accelerated NAT which isnt supported in third party firmwares anyway, so if you are really into openWRT steer clear of the whole brand.
