TP-Link Archer AX10 (AX1500) WIFI 6 Router Review

The TP-Link Archer AX10 is a dual-band 802.11ax router. It performs admirably at 5GHz and has a good signal range, but its 2.4GHz performances may be improved. It lacks capabilities like multi-gigabit and USB interfaces, as well as 160MHz channel width and WPA3 encryption.


The TP-Link Archer AX10 is a low-cost Wi-Fi router having four Gigabit Ethernet LAN ports and a separate Gigabit Ethernet WAN interface. It’s not quite as big or flashy as some of the more expensive routers I’ve seen so far. For the majority of individuals, the lack of USB ports is likely to be the most visible omission.


The TP-Link AX10 has a low-rise, elongated casing with a width of 260mm but a depth of only 135mm. It’s relatively unobtrusive in terms of Wi-Fi 6 routers, albeit the glossy plastic top is prone to annoying reflections. Four Gigabit LAN connections are included in the back, alongside a dedicated WAN connector and a sticky-out button that enables WPS pairing for up to five minutes.

Setup and Software:

It’s simple to set up after scanning a QR code on the back of the router to establish a connection. The Tether app prompts you to associate your router with an account, which grants access to the main control screen. The 5GHz radio can only transmit between channels 36 and 48 and does not support the 160MHz channel mode. There can’t be any kind of file or media server if there aren’t any USB ports. Aside from a basic, non-configurable firewall, you won’t find much in the way of security features.


The Archer AX10 isn’t meant for maximum speeds, thus Wi-Fi 6 isn’t a significant improvement over 802.11ac. For a 5GHz radio, a data throughput of 1.2Gbits/sec isn’t particularly impressive; most flagship models boast four times the bandwidth. The channel width is limited to 80MHz, and there is no access to high-frequency DFS channels that could help reduce interference. It routinely outperformed the Nighthawk RAX40, with only same-room transfers falling behind. The Archer AX10 is a dual-band AX1500 router with 5GHz top speeds of 1,200Mbps and 2.4GHz top speeds of 300Mbps.


  • Simple to use.
    • VPN server built-in.
    • Affordable.
    • In testing, the 5GHz speed and signal range were excellent.


  • Doesn’t support a channel width of 160MHz.
  • There are no anti-malware programmes available.
  • There are no USB ports or multi-gigabit LAN ports.
  • In testing, the 2.4GHz performance was mediocre.


At RM349, it outperforms several older Cellular AC routers that cost twice as much. Getting this TP-Link Archer AX10 is a no-brainer; it offers excellent performance and is quite stable. With that in mind, as well as its high throughput on the 5GHz radio band, the AX10 is a viable upgrade option for anyone wishing to move up to Wi-Fi 6.
