WiFi 802.11 AC done right.
This router is easy to setup and configure.
I have 4 apple computers (3 macbook / pros and 1 imac) and 2 cell phones (Moto X gen1 and gen 3) simultaneously working on the wireless 5GHz band.
Since my older 802.11n 5GHz band router was unable to keep up, especially during time machine backups over WiFi, I decided to upgrade to Archer C2600. Now I do not have any more network slowdowns especially when all my wireless devices are simultaneously accessing the network.
Moreover the number of dead-zones and blind-spots have reduced considerably, and I can use my laptop in 5GHz bands all over my apartment. I have 5GHz coverage in places which my old router could not cover. I am guessing this is due to beam-forming technology built into 802.11ac.
Since this is a simultaneous dual band router (running both 2.4GHz and 5GHz), my security cam, printer and older cell phones are also simultaneously connected to my home network.
One drawback of this router is that it only supports channels 36,40,44 and 48 in the 5GHz bands.
Also after uploading a new firmware, I had to reset the router, losing all my settings.
Overall the router is stable and has been operating flawlessly.
