The TP-Link Archer A20 is a great router that we called a "congestion killer" in our review. That's precisely what it does, too. Right now you can get it at a discounted price of just $139.99 on Amazon (opens in new tab). The router's regular price is $200, and while it has gone on sale in the last couple months you'd have to go all the way back to May 2020 to find it going for as low as today's deal. This is a big and rare discount, which means it will probably not last very long.
TP-Link Archer A20 AC4000 Tri-Band Wi-Fi router (opens in new tab)
With a tri-band radio, MU-MIMO technology, Beamforming, link aggregation, and more, this router is perfect for homes with a dozen different devices all trying to connect at once. It supports Windows, Mac, and Linux. Includes a 2-year warranty.
Our review of the router gave it 4 stars out of 5 and a Recommended badge. Dan Thorp-Lancaster said "it packs consistent throughput and a solid feature set for the money. If you don't want to invest in a mesh networking setup and have a ton of connected devices, the Archer A20 is a solid bet." The biggest mark against it was the price, which hopefully today's deal takes care of for you.
This is a router that's ready to handle whatever you're going to throw at it. First off, it has a tri-band radio capable of 1625 Mbps on both 5GHz bands and 750 Mbps on the 2.4GHz band. It's powered by a 1.8GHz 64-bit processor with three co-processors and 512MB of RAM.
Plus, there are some great features to help deal with a household that has all sorts of gaming consoles, smartphones, laptops, and tablets connected to the same Wi-Fi. MU-MIMO tech for example lets you get all those devices connected simultaneously and can handle the multiple requests all at once. The beamforming technology focuses the router's signal so you get the strongest connection even when you're far away. And it can handle the distance thanks to a range boost feature.
You'll also get a free lifetime subscription to TP-Link HomeCare, which helps you with anti-virus, parental controls, QoS, and more. TP-Link backs it up with a two-year warranty.
