AC1900 MU-MIMO Wi-Fi Router

Archer A8

Maximum Wi-Fi Performance with Three Streams

With 3×3 MIMO, Archer A8 is capable of transmitting and receiving data on three streams. 3×3 capable computers- like Macs-pair perfectly with A8 to perform at max with much higher efficiency than 2×2 MIMO routers.

Incredible Wi-Fi 5 Wave2 Series

Archer A8 delivers high-performance and affordable home WiFi with total speeds up to 1900 Mbps. Handle simple tasks like sending e-mails or web browsing on the 2.4 GHz band and bandwidth-intensive tasks like online gaming or 4K/8K UHD streaming on the 5 GHz band-all lag-free.

Broader Coverage throughout Your Home

Access your entertainment from every corner of your home with 3 external high-performance antennas. Beamforming technology detects devices and concentrates wireless signal strength towards them, even if they are far away or low-powered.

TP-Link OneMesh™ : Flexibly Create a Whole-Home Wi-Fi

OneMesh™ is a simple way to form a Mesh network with a single Wi-Fi name for seamless whole-home coverage. Just connect a OneMeshTM range extender to a OneMesh™ router. No more searching around for a stable connection.

Wi-Fi Dead-Zone Killer

Eliminate weak signal areas with Wi-Fi coverage for the whole house

Smart Roaming

Uninterrupted streaming when moving around your home

One Wi-Fi Name

No more switching Wi-Fi network names

Unified Management

Manage the whole-home Wi-Fi by managing the central node via Tether app/Web UI

Connect More Devices Simultaneously

Archer A8 helps your devices achieve optimal performance by making communication more efficient with MU-MIMO technology. Multiple devices are able to send and receive data on the best available band. Enjoy non-stop entertainment on all your devices-lag free.

Advanced Security with WPA3

The latest Wi-Fi security protocol, WPA3, brings new capabilities to improve cybersecurity in personal networks. More secure encryption in Wi-Fi password safety and enhanced protection against brute-force attacks combine to safeguard your home Wi-Fi.

Increased Efficiency in WiFi Distribution

Smart Connect helps your router automatically switch each device's connection to the best available WiFi band while Airtime Fairness prevents older devices from slowing down your network. With both, everyone can enjoy a smoother WiFi experience.
