4 Beamforming Antennas

The Archer AX50 features 4 external high-gain antennas with beamforming technology, which focuses signal strength towards the devices that actively access the router.

Save Battery with TWT

TWT stands for Target Wake Time, which is a technology that's meant to preserve your mobile device's battery life. TWT schedules when your compatible devices will power on to send and receive data. This helps your devices sleep longer and thereby decrease battery usage.

Network Security with HomeCare

TP-Link's HomeCare software is specially designed to both protect your sensitive data and give you detailed control over network access. Here are some of the capabilities of HomeCare:

Built-in anti-virus to help protect your sensitive data
Parental controls that let you restrict time spent online and block inappropriate content
Prioritize network traffic to optimize the speed of specific devices and applications

App-Based Setup

With TP-Link's Tether app for Android and iOS devices, you can conveniently setup and manage your network via a smartphone or tablet.

Voice Commands with Alexa

The Archer AX50 also supports router management via voice commands and Amazon's Alexa digital assistant.

TP-Link AX50 Reviews

Good solid replacement router

By Michael

I called the folks at B&H as I had previously had good experience with recommendations on my needs. I chatted with a nice lady who listened to my present uses and she gave me this to check out. I decided to get it, took very short time to install / set up and so far I am mostly pleased with it. I was used to more choices for managing my old Linksys WRT-1900ACS but this still has features that didn't. One such I like is thar I can get notifications for any new device connecting to my router! I'm still playing with tweaks as needed, but so far very satisfied with item, and experience dealing with B&H. Recieved it faster than most things from Amazon lol!

I purchased this router based on other reviews I read. It's been excellent - fairly easy to set up - and no disruptions in service (so far). I would recommend.

Works as advertised. Comes with a lifetime free subscription of TP-Link's HomeCare. No need to use the Tether App- you can set up the router through a browser once you connect to the Router via wifi (user/pass at the bottom of deveice).

Very easy to set up and does what it's supposed to do in maintaining wireless signals throughout my two-story house. Previous router woefully out of date and was getting dropped signals all the time. Small footprint so I can put it on my desk. This router kept appearing on "best of" lists and "best values." Performs as advertised.

Great for small spaces and for price

For an affordable dual band router, this was a great upgrade. We're consistently getting download and upload speeds that are twice as fast as our 5-year-old tri-band Netgear router, and even with one less antenna, the issues with devices with being dropped from the network or connectivity crawling to a snails pace because the network gets overwhelmed have virtually disappeared. Now, we are two people living in a 2-bedroom apartment with gig internet via fiber in a well-connected urban area. We both work from home and have had several meetings with six people using the home's connection all at once, and the router has handled all that capably. I've been able to have video calls while five people are working in the kitchen, no problem. However, we've noticed a significant drop-off in signal strength in the bedroom, so I imagine this router would be unsuitable for a larger space (honestly, it wasn't designed for that). But for getting into 6th-gen internet for under $130, you'd be hard-pressed to do better.

The plug that is included with the router is a dual voltage adapter. You will need to purchase a separate adapter. We certainly sell them.
