TP-Link Archer AX50
The best Wi-Fi router
In our tests the TP-Link Archer AX50 created a speedy, responsive network even from across a medium house. You have to spend a lot more on a router—or a mesh kit if you have a very large home—to get anything even a little better. It's our first WI-Fi 6 (802.11ax) router pick.

The TP-Link Archer AX50 is reasonably priced, yet it can handle a growing selection of laptops and smart devices while surpassing the performance of routers that cost twice as much. It's generally speedy and able to reach long range, it has little lag even when the network is busy, and it's a great choice if you have a high-performance internet service plan. It's compatible with Wi-Fi 6, the latest wireless standard, and it comes with built-in security in the form of a lifetime subscription to updates.

TP-Link Archer AX20
If our main pick is unavailable
The Archer AX20 offers fewer features than our pick for a slightly lower price, but in most cases it can keep up in throughput, responsiveness, and ease of setup.

If our pick is out of stock or its price is more than $30 higher, you should consider the TP-Link Archer AX20 instead. The AX20 looks like the AX50 and offers a strong, responsive network that's nearly as good, especially if your house isn't larger than our 2,300-square-foot-test home. But it's not quite as fast at longer ranges, and TP-Link sacrifices a few advanced features and settings in its administration interface to meet the lower price

OTHER THINGS TO NOTE:

1. Donknows has a review on the AX3000 (Archer AX 50) this has thoroughly been discredited on this thread.

Quote from PeteyTheStriker
:
As was mentioned by me and a few others, that DONGKNOWS review is poorly done. It is not an apples to apples comparison, he used a router with a brand new firmware comparing to an identical router with firmware over 6 months old which had major problems just like any other router around that time. It takes time to work out the bugs and TP-Link, Netgear, Asus to name a few all put out routers with bugged performance with their first set of Wifi 6 routers. So yeah..... Important to make apples to apples instead of reading something without understanding the testing. If he did it the correct way he would have had both side by side on the same firmware.The routers are identical outside USB 3.0 port and Homecare included on one, so you will get identical performance results with the same firmware.

2. CAT7, a CAT 6 or CAT5e cable is needed for gigabit Ethernet. Most cables made for the last 10 years are already 5e, so just saying that cables are usually never a bottleneck.

So you are thumbing it down because it has attained more page views but not enough thumbs up? So are you also giving thumbs down to other threads with low thumbs up? I am glad you are not a programmer or an attorney because there is a logic flaw in your argument.

Out of curiosity, How many deals have you posted that have have more thumbs up? This way, we can ascertain how much value you have actually added in this deal forum.
No, I thumbed down it because of the unnecessary thread bumps and the need to include a page views counter on the thread title.

How is it so far?
It's been about a week and it's been great. Higher speeds than my Archer C7 AC1750. No issues with it dropping connections yet. Note that I only use it as a wireless access point and the backhaul is hardwired to the Archer C7.

Why don't you restore the router to factory setting and try again without fiddling around. Once you get the desired speed that you can start tweaking.
First thing first, Issue is not solved yet for me.
I won't consider any router to be the no.1 rated router if out of box, it wants first thing as factory reset. It does not matter who rated it no.1.

I am interested in knowing if anyone was able to get gigabit speed out of LAN ports of this router. There of dozen of forum posts mostly with fake or non-working solutions.

The Wi-Fi speed is very stable ( even on my 2013 Mac) .. around 450mbps in line of sight and 300-360 mbps , 1 floor up about 30-40 ft away.

PS - I have ATT Fiber, and I skip their router and close mac to put TP Link in first place after the switch.

Does anyone know how this $99 Nighthawk from Walmart compares to the TP-Link in this deal?

Finally setup this router and I'm getting frequent wifi drops, around once an hour. Has anyone else had a similar experience or know of any fixes?

This directly replaced my 6 year old Nighthawk AC1900 R7000 which was working fine but I figured could use an upgrade. Speeds are barely faster on the TP Link AX3000 and I'm getting very frequent wifi dropouts.
