Works great, wishing for bandwidth use data

This device works great. During Quarantine, my family of 6 has put a lot of pressure on the home network, sometimes running 5 Zoom meetings at a time on Comcast 300 Mb/s cable connection. The router has performed well. Setup was a breeze. Everything just works.

I’m subtracting one star for a feature that this system really ought to have: better data on bandwidth data by device and cumulatively. I’m not a systems engineer, but in the past I’ve had to sleuth around the house trying to figure out which device is causing overall system bandwidth to lag. Why can’t this device more clearly report the instantaneous and time history of bandwidth use by each device. I note also that the readout of instantaneous bandwidth usage is not accurate; while on a Zoom call, the display often showed my use speed was 0 for my computer.

Great for initial setup but lacking in network management

First, I really enjoy the router and the initial setup with this app. The setup was very easy—set up an account, network name, & password. For most things beyond that (including any “advanced” network setup), this app isn’t so great. For example, if you want to change the DNS settings or port-forwarding, that’s only through the web interface. This app is limited to seeing what’s connected, sharing your password, and rebooting the router. It’s good at doing that; I just wish the marketing about what the app is for was more clear.

There are also some other minor issues that keep the app from functioning as intended. It only connected to my router locally the first time. Now it always connects to it as a “cloud device” and takes several seconds and network requests to load anything. It also hardly ever keeps my session, so I have to log in basically every time. Finally, sometimes it loses my session when I’m in the middle of rebooting the router so I need to wait on the router, login to the app, then connect to the router again. It’s not terrible but is basically always smoother to do through the web interface.

Great app to remotely control a great router (Archer A7)

This app, with auto-login, makes it incredibly easy to access every setting of your router as if you were on your hard-wired PC. TP-Link got it so right on both the app and the router. The Archer A7 is the first router I’d seen with “Mesh” technology. If you’re not familiar with this, it simply means that your 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands (signals) are “meshed” together and the router leaves it up to the client to decide which band it not only the fastest, but also for which band it is compatible. Meaning no more having to manually choose 2.4GHz for a device that requires that band. And the app lets you see which clients are connected to the 2.4 or 5GHz bands, plus gives you control to set up instantly disconnect a device that should not be connected or you no longer want connected, such as the “Guest” network, which also uses Mesh technology. Obviously, highly recommend the Archer A7 and this companion app.
