It’s 2018 and no one should have to deal with turning the Wi-Fi on and off multiple times to get it to work. Don’t even get me started on Wi-Fi slowing down when it can’t handle multiple devices. We’re tired.
If your router is constantly giving you problems, just snag a new one from Amazon: Numerous TP-Link products are up to 25% including smart routers, home mesh Wi-Fi systems, and smart plugs.
(And then throw your old router out the window.)
Here are some of the best deals:
Pixel-y Netflix streaming and lagging video games is basically torture — put an end to your suffering with the Alexa-compatible TP-Link Archer AC3150 Smart WiFi Router. This 1024 QAM, dual-band Gigabit router makes 4K streaming and gaming possible, with speeds up to 3150 Mbps. Multi-user MIMO technology lets multiple devices to connect simultaneously without losing speed (aka no one has to be kicked off again).
You’ll also get a free three-year subscription to TP-Link HomeCare, which automatically protects smart home devices to help keep your family safe online with antivirus and parental controls.
The only thing that may be a bigger pain in the ass than Wi-Fi modems are cable modems. The TP-Link Archer AC1750 Wireless Wi-Fi Cable Modem Router is the ultimate cord cutting hack, certified for memberships with XFINITY from Comcast, Spectrum (including Charter, Time Warner Cable, and Bright House Networks), Mediacom, and more. Six internal antennas and powerful amplifiers boost signal strength to reduce interference on those must-have over-the-air channels.
Plus, aside from insane 680 Mbps cable download speeds, you’ll also get Wi-Fi speeds up to 1750 Mbps. If anything goes wrong, there’s a two-year warranty and 24/7 tech help.
Or you could totally ditch the traditional router/modem Wi-Fi system with the Deco Whole Home Mesh Wi-Fi System from TP-Link. Instead of usually unreliable range extenders, this mesh system allows seamless Wi-Fi access from room to room — every room in the house could have one if you’re feeling ambitious. Just plug them in and use the Android and iOS TP-Link app to get the network situated, and then TP-Link’s Adaptive Routing Technology will automatically choose the quickest path for each device.
And, like the Archer router, you’ll get a free three-year subscription to Trend Micro antivirus software.
Possibly the most convenient creation of ever, smart plugs are a must-have in any home. These Amazon’s Choice Kasa Smart Wi-Fi Plugs from TP-Link don’t even require a smart home hub (though they are Alexa compatible if you have an Echo device). All you need is the Kasa app on your smartphone to control your outlets from wherever you are.
These particular ones are also equipped with an energy saving feature, allowing you to monitor energy usage from each outlet from your phone, and set timers to save even more (ace for AC in the summer).
