Upgrade your internet with TP-Link's powerful Archer C5400 tri-band router on sale for $180

The TP-Link Archer C5400 wireless tri-band router (opens in new tab) is down to $179.99 when you clip the $90 off on-page coupon at B&H. The same router is going for $210 on Amazon (opens in new tab) and $230 at Best Buy (opens in new tab). This is one of the lowest prices we've ever seen, and you'd have to go back more than a year to see the last time it dropped this low anywhere.

The Archer C5400 is a very powerful device that will let you enjoy 4K video and play online games with no interruptions on its ultra-fast Wi-Fi. It uses three wireless bands, NitroQAM technology, and MU-MIMO tech to keep your signal flowing as fast as possible with up to 1000 Mbps on the 2.4 GHz band and 2167 Mbps on two 5 GHz bands. MU-MIMO is the tech designed for homes with a dozen different mobile devices all trying to connect to the same wireless network. It helps keep them all running as smooth as possible, and the powerful 1.4 GHz dual-core processor with three co-processors helps with that, too.

You'll get TP-Link HomeCare for anti-virus protection and parental controls, the ability to setup a personal VPN, and a router that's smart enough to work with Amazon's Alexa (opens in new tab). TP-Link backs it up with a two-year warranty.

Pair this router with a powerful cable modem like the Netgear CM700 (opens in new tab), which is $10 off right now, and kiss those cable rental fees goodbye.
