Hello,

I was researching TP-Link Archer C80 wireless router and noticed that it offers wireless speed of up to 600 Mbps at 2.4GHz 802.11n

Most wireless routers can offer up to 300 Mbps. How does this particular model offer twice as much?

Maybe, if you are playing around in a clean lab environment, but not in the real world. You'll be lucky to get that with 866 (2 stream) AC in the real world. AX however has been surprising me. Even AX devices connecting to AC routers reach 600+ more readily even through 2 walls.

Yeah, I've gotten 600mbps+ with 802.11AC 2 stream before, but most of the time it's around 350-550mbps at best.
