Having issues with Archer C7 dropping speed
I'm having the same issues. I bought my router new about 2 months ago. I confirmed it was V2 firmware. And just a few days ago, it started having this issue. I have verizon fios as my ISP. Their router has the broadcast turned off because I was getting better speed from the archer.

Same issue with V1
Have the same problem on both Archer_C7_V1_140402 and Archer_C7_V1_140704 fw. Huge annoying because vpn connection to my work drops and when playing CS you often get shot!
I replaced my router at the reseller (under warranty) and now running hw ver 2.0 instead of 1.1 and so far (yesterday at 16.00) no dropped connections

I am having the same issues that others have identified. Randomly, and for no known reason, my connection will drop for a few seconds and then automatically reconnect.
I looked at the TP-Link website for a firmware upgrade but it seems that V2 has not recieved an upgrade in quite awhile. It doesn't matter what I am doing on a computer, tablet, phone, or streaming device, the connection will randomly drop.
Anyone find any solutions for this yet?
ARCHER C7 v1 Randomly dropping DHCP
Has anyone found a solution, while increasing the dhcp lease time did decrease the issue rate, it is NOT a solution. anybody.....
ARCHER C7 v1 Randomly dropping DHCP
Anybody found a solution?, TP-LINK are you listening?
increasing the DCHP time decreases the incidence rate, but the issue still occurs! We need a solution, currently my solution is to poweroff/poweron the C7 to get DHCP functionality back!
Your guys have upgraded the firmware released in September???
still having issue after firmware upgrade
I recently got an Archer C7 V2 and upgraded the firmware to 3.14.1 Build 140929 Rel.33293n
I am still having an issue with intermittent connection loss on my wired connection. my configuration is modem -> C7 router -> switch. Are there any other suggestions besides updating firmware and increasing DHCP lease?
The modem router and C7 are both routers. You are setting up two NAT firewall, which leads to speed loss.
Configure your modem router as a pure modem, let the C7 dial-up. In this way the C7 becomes the only router in your network.
Check your modem router's user guide to configure it as a pure modem, or called bridge mode.
Configure the C7 as a pure access point, In this way the modem router becomes the only router in your network.
Follow this article to configure the C7 as a pure access point
Problems continue in 2017...
I have an Archer C7 v2, firmware 3.15.1 Build 160719 Rel.57530n
At least once a day devices connected via wifi are coming up with self-assigned IP addresses; nothing I do to the devices (mostly iPhones and iPads) does any good, including renewing DHCP leases. Restarting the C7 resolves it every time, at least for a few hours.
Any suggestions? I have set it up according to these instructions:
...DHCP turned off, connected to my router (Cisco RV042G) via ethernet to LAN port.
Wow 3 year and the problem still exist and tp-archer support has not fixed this issue for 3 years.This shows how much tp-link cares about their customers.Never ever again a Router from tp link.
Hey, never use bad words in this forum ok ?! Like the word Sh1t, haven't your mommy learned that yet?Andd for the second you seem most amateur here because you just guess the issue, and people complain about this issue and you say this issue does not exist. lolHow old are you? Like 13 or 14, i guess not more
