I saw that, but got confused because it says "archer c1900". instead of "ac1900". I assume same thing? Still not sure if I should buy, though, because Chinese companies are known for shenanigans.
I thought all production of electronics sold in the US begins in China.🤔

Probably, but I figured the actual brand itself being Chinese is a concern. Some other Chinese brand was in the news recently for some backdoor in modems, I believe.

Btw, how much difference is there between the 1750 and 1900?

Yes that's called government sponsored surveillance programs, thanks "NSA".

As for difference not much really. It receieved a pretty good review on SNB. It has poor storage performance and no VPN as its biggest cons.

What I would be worried about and I started noticing this trend just recently that the firmware on this router has not been updated since 2016. Another thread about another tp link product also had the same issue. Which makes this very easy to hack, so your concerns about it being easy to hack can be very legit about this product since it has not patched well know vulnerabilities.

If you dont care about that its really hard to beat the performance. Cheapest next to the Dlink I posted the other day for a AC1900 router.

Looks like DD-WRT supports this guy (according to https://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index...es#TP-Link).

The firmware situation is a no go. Does anyone know if this has known vulnerabilities? with KRAK I would expect to see updates.

Not all versions. If this is a v1, then you are good other than that I don't know.

The Archer C1900 is supposedly identical to the Archer C9 v1.x so you ought to be able to use one of the newer firmwares posted for the C9 V1.x https://www.tp-link.com/us/downlo...l#Firmware

This router appears to have been discountinued. It is the predecessor to the famously-rock-solid Archer C9. At first glance it appears only the color has changed, but the Archer C9 has continued to receive firmware updates (albeit very slow) and has slightly better internals.

Also, there are different versions of this router and the Archer C9 out there. Make sure you check the label where the serial number is on the box to find out what version you received.

I own the Archer C9 and it's one of the most stable routers I've owned with very good range. YMMV with this older version.
