General info

With more LAN ports you are able to connect more computers to the network directly using LAN cables.
A WAN (Wider Area Network) port is most commonly used to connect the router to the internet. It can also be used to connect to an external private network.
has outdoor capability
TP-Link Archer AX90
The device can be set up in outdoor environments.
With more USB ports, you are able to connect more devices.
warranty period

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

When covered under the manufacturer’s warranty it is possible to get a replacement in the case of a malfunction. Note: This may vary by region.

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.


Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space enclosed by the product's chassis or, in simpler terms, the space the product occupies.
The thickness (or depth) of the product.


The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product.


Wi-Fi version

Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax), Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac), Wi-Fi 4 (802.11n)

The Wi-Fi versions supported by the device.
Wi-Fi bands


Dual band routers have two bands, 2.4GHz and 5GHz. The 5GHz band is faster and more stable, with the only downside being that it covers a shorter range than the 2.4GHz band. If you have many connected devices, you may benefit from a tri-band router, which has an additional 5GHz band to reduce network congestion. Finally, there are quad-band routers. These take advantage of Wi-Fi 6E to provide an additional 6GHz band for faster speeds and lower latency.
Wi-Fi speed


A higher maximum Wi-Fi speed results in better performance. This is measured in megabits per second.
CPU speed

4 x 1.5GHz

The CPU speed indicates how many processing cycles per second can be executed by a CPU, considering all of its cores (processing units). It is calculated by adding the clock rates of each core or, in the case of multi-core processors employing different microarchitectures, of each group of cores.

Random-access memory (RAM) is a form of volatile memory used to store working data and machine code currently in use. It is a quick-access, temporary virtual storage that can be read and changed in any order, thus enabling fast data processing.
has an external memory slot
TP-Link Archer AX90
The device has a standard memory slot (such as an SD or micro SD card slot) that enables you to extend the built-in internal storage with affordable memory modules, or easily retrieve data, such as photographs, from the memory card.
Has DNS relay
TP-Link Archer AX90
With DNS relay or DNS caching, the router stores the response to queries for a short time. This means that the same query will return a quicker response if repeated from another computer in the same network.
internal storage

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

The internal storage refers to the built-in storage space available in a device for system data, apps, and user-generated data. With a large amount of internal storage, you can save more files and apps on your device.


More antennas result in increased signal strength. External antennas can be repositioned in order to improve the signal, and replaced with a longer antenna if needed.
Has removable antennas
TP-Link Archer AX90
The antennas can be removed if they are not needed, or replaced with longer ones if necessary.
internal antennas

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

More antennas result in increased signal strength. Devices with internal antennas often take up less space.


Has a built-in network firewall
TP-Link Archer AX90
A network firewall protects a computer network from unauthorized access.
Has DoS protection
TP-Link Archer AX90
DoS protection guards a content network against DoS (Denial of Service) attacks. These flood a network with server requests, slowing overall traffic and potentially causing long term interruptions.
supports WPA3
TP-Link Archer AX90
WPA3 is a method of connecting to a Wi-Fi network that is more secure than the previous protocol (WPA2). Individual data is better encrypted and it is harder for hackers to gain the password with a brute-force attack.
Has WPA2 Enterprise
TP-Link Archer AX90
This is a router feature that is designed to authenticate individual users to an external server using a username and password. It is more secure and complex than WPA.
supports WPA2
TP-Link Archer AX90
WPA2-PSK is a method of securing your network using WPA2 (Wi-Fi Protected Access 2) as well as a Pre-Shared Key (PSK) password. This was designed for home users without an enterprise authentication server.
Has MAC address filtering
TP-Link Archer AX90
This is a security feature in which network access is granted to devices based on their unique MAC address. It can provide increased security, but it can be a risk if the user loses the device.
Has L2TP Passthrough
TP-Link Archer AX90
You can enable L2TP Passthrough. L2TP (Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol) is a VPN (Virtual Private Network) protocol for carrying data from one device to another securely over the internet.
Has IPsec Passthrough
TP-Link Archer AX90
You can enable IPsec Passthrough, to allow IPsec (IP Security Protocol) encrypted/authenticated data to pass through your router, enabling increased security.
Has SPI intrusion protection
TP-Link Archer AX90
All incoming traffic will be blocked except for those types selected in the Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI) section. This helps to protect your network from unwanted traffic.


IPv6 enabled
TP-Link Archer AX90
IPv6 is a newer version of the Internet Protocol. IPv6 operates as a separate network to IPv4, and has the capacity for more IP addresses and more features.
has beamforming
TP-Link Archer AX90
Normally, a router broadcasts the Wi-Fi signal in all directions. Using beamforming technology, the router detects where your device is and focuses a stronger signal in that direction, resulting in a better connection.
supports mesh Wi-Fi
TP-Link Archer AX90
If you use several of these routers, they can link up with each other to provide a greater area of Wi-Fi coverage. It's particularly useful if you have a large house or apartment.
supports Matter
TP-Link Archer AX90
Matter is a standard for smart home devices. It is backed by various tech companies including Apple, Google, Amazon, and Samsung. The goal is to allow devices to be used across different systems, so you don't have to worry about compatibility issues.
supports VLAN tagging
TP-Link Archer AX90
VLAN tagging is required by some internet service providers (ISPs) to establish an internet connection.
Has a dedicated smartphone app
TP-Link Archer AX90
There is a dedicated smartphone app that is designed to be used with the device.
Is cloud enabled
TP-Link Archer AX90
Cloud compatibility allows you to control the operation of the device remotely using your smartphone, tablet or other mobile internet devices.
Can be used wirelessly
TP-Link Archer AX90
Wireless devices allow users more freedom of movement.
is DLNA-certified
TP-Link Archer AX90
All DLNA-certified products are compatible with one another. When different devices are connected to the same network, data can be transferred easily between them.
