Introduction

TP-Link has been one of the cornerstones of networking products on the global market since their first entry into the international market in 2005.  Although they were formed in 1996, they have gone from strength to strength since then and continue to provide consumers and businesses alike with many different products, catering for many different needs.

With that in mind, today I have one of TP-Link’s flagship products, more namely the Archer D9 AC1900 Wireless ADSL 2+ Modem Router, which packs some impressive features such as triple antenna for maximum wireless coverage, dual USB ports for the connection of external HDDs and printers as well as the support of dual band AC technology.  With that said, how will it perform?  Is it a premium product from a global networking powerhouse or is it just not that good?  Let’s take a look, starting with the specifications.
