TP-Link Archer AX11000 Next-Gen Tri-Band Gaming Router Review

The TP-Link Archer AX11000 Next-Gen Tri-Band Gaming Router is a next-generation tri-band gaming router. Even for a Wi-Fi 6 router, it’s a touch pricey, but you get complete control over your gaming bandwidth.
The TP-Link AX11000 stands out as one of the fastest Wi-Fi 6 routers available. Strong parental restrictions, a lifetime anti-malware subscription, and a game acceleration utility are all included, all housed in a stylish gamer-friendly panel.

Design and  Features:

The AX11000 is a 12-stream tri-band router with data rates of up to 1,148 Mbps on the 2.4 GHz band and up to 4,804 Mbps on the 5 GHz band on each of the two 5 GHz bands (theoretically). It includes OFDMA (Orthogonal Frequency-Division Multiple Access) and WPA3 encryption, as well as the latest 802.11ax Wi-Fi 6 technology. A menu with tabs for Game Accelerator, Game Protector, Smart Game Assistant, and Game Diagnostics is located on the left side of the screen. These are the same Trend Micro-powered controls that come standard with the TP-Link Archer AX6000 router, and they provide lifelong protection against viruses, phishing attacks, ransomware, and other dangerous content. The Internet button opens a panel where you may adjust your Internet Type and MAC Clone settings.


The TP-Link Archer AX11000 is a high-end router that supports Wi-Fi 6 and 802.11ax. It has a quad-core processor running at 1.8 GHz, 1 GB of RAM, and 512 MB of flash storage. Eight gigabit LAN ports and two USB 3.0 connectors, one Type-C and the other Type-A are available. 444 MU-MIMO, beamforming, and orthogonal frequency division multiple access are among the other characteristics (OFDMA).


The AX11000’s router configuration is a distinct advantage. It all starts with the eight antennae, which clicked into place with a pleasing click. We like that configuration can be done on a smartphone or via a web browser, which is our preferred method. The last option took only a few minutes and allowed us to customize our Wi-Fi password as well as create separate 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz networks.


WPA3 is supported by the Netgear AX11000 router, which is backward compatible with earlier standards. It also includes some antivirus protection and makes use of a Trend Micro-powered security database that receives updates. A Malicious Content Filter is included, as well as an Intrusion Protection System that can be operated separately. Parental controls are also provided, as one would expect from a router in this class.

Installation and Performance:

In our throughput testing, the TP-Link Archer AX11000 received high marks. It outperforms the Linksys MR9600 and Netgear Nighthawk AX12 RAX120 but falls short of the Asus RT-AX88U. With a leading score of 67 Mbps on the 30-foot test, it demonstrated good range performance. The 5GHz band performed admirably as well. The 2.4 GHz signal from the TP-Link Archer AX11000 is strong across much of the house but weakens at 75 feet from the router. Moving a 1.5 GB folder between a USB drive connected to the router and a PC is used to assess performance.
