Model: Archer C80
Hardware Version:
Firmware Version:

Hi, I have a two storeyed house with gigabit connection. I'm stuck between choosing the Archer C80 or A9. They seem very similar, and I plan on using a WiFi extender along with it too. 

Which do you think will be the better choice, the C80 or the A9.

Please advise. 

Thanks in advance.

I do not have experience with either. I would prefer the A9 as it has a USB port and Allows VPN per the specs. I have an extender and it works fine, however you should consider a Mesh system such as the Deco as it would be a more integrated system.

If you are looking just for wireless coverage, I think maybe the C80, but if you want to utilize features @ArcherC8 mentioned, then the A9.

Thanks for the advice guys. I think I'll get the c80 now as I only need wireless capability right now. 

TP-Link has a repeater that'll give me adequate speeds for the lower floor, and it supports One Mesh. So I'm thinking I'll get that. I don't have super heavy usage that calls for wired high-speed connections. I'm just looking to set up some simple wireless network that'll give me a decent range and speed throughout the house.
