From Amazon reviews, FYI:

"This is the US v5.0 of the TP-Link Archer C7 (AC1750). There is only one version of the firmware from April 2018. The DD-WRT site states that v5.0 is not supported and "probably never will be". Regardless, the 5ghz antenna refuses to stay connected and recycles constantly. There is no problem with the 2.4ghz but having a dual band router with only one working set of antennas is completely unacceptable. I have v2.0 of the router running with DD-WRT and the 5ghz antenna works perfectly. I have to assume that TP-Link has deficient firmware for this router. The inability to upgrade to a newer native firmware from TP-Link, or to flash it with DD-WRT makes it unusable for someone like myself who utilizes the 5ghz band. Unfortunately, there's no way to tell what version hardware you're ordering. DD-WRT does support up to v4.0."

I had the C7 version of this router for a few years, but recently had to replace it. I kept getting dropped connections more and more frequently. Perhaps too many devices on WIFI (definitely more compared to when I first bought the router).

The sounds of "Dad, youtube's not loading" still haunt me to this day.

That is from Amazon. This is b&h. Also, why does the following review state:
"stable, strong signal, and well supported by the open source community (equiv to C7 v5)"

Just go to the dd-wrt forums to find out if they are supported. The A7 V5 (and C7 V5) are supported.

Here's the A7 thread: https://forum.dd-wrt.com/phpBB2/v...sc&start=0

Latest build: https://download1.dd-wrt.com/dd-w...her-a7-v5/

I got a couple C7 V4 units when Walmart was clearing them out a while back and they've been fine on dd-wrt.

Does anyone know if this version supports the TP-Link Alexa skills? The AC1750 sold on Amazon does, but this page makes no mention of it.

How do you trust firmware built by some unknown person referred to as Kong or Brainslayer?

I've been using this router for 4 months non-stop. Never had to restart, runs perfectly at 5ghz and 2.4ghz.

It was on sale at Microcenter for perhaps $60 new. I had a pretty long conversation with the knowledgable worker there and he recommended this one to me at that price.

The one thing I had to do was log into the router and tell it what my internet speed was so it knows how to distribute correctly. Before I did that, when I started using a new device it would often cause my internet to halt on one or more devices.

I am assuming that it automatically distributes between 2.4 and 5ghz considering it's a smart one. I have 150 Mbps connection from Cox and got a wavlink router recently based on amazon reviews wherein I need to set up two different WiFis and decide which device to connect to which.
