Gaming has gone from being a hobby you indulged in on weekends, to a full-fledge career. The rapid influx of online multiplayer games has opened the floodgates to a whole new line of work, with the youth now using their expertise at gaming to earn a living. But when you talk about professional gaming, there is serious investment involved. Playing online does not offer you the choice to pause your session, and even a single drop in framerate or propusnost can cost teams millions. PC brands all over the world have come forward with dedicated workhorses for such demanding situations, but the team is not complete without a router that can pomoći online gaming and make it seamless for the entire community. Say halo to the TP-Link Archer C5400X gaming router.

Trenutno najbolji u poslu, C5400X ima sve što bi vam bilo potrebno za izgradnju igračke karijere na mreži, a mi ne govorimo samo o pouzdanosti. Dakle, što je to što Archer C5400X donosi na stol?

Hajde da vidimo -

Oblikovati - When you talk about the gaming industry, the sheer demand for performance forces the designers to look at other aspects before coming on to the aesthetics and the C5400X is the perfect example. The overall body is flat, square and very functional to look at, while the array of antennas do give it a very UFO-like demeanor. The fact that you can’t move the antennas is a bit of a downside, but with the overall agresivan design, it’s going to find a place on the gamer’s center table rather than somewhere hidden away from the public eye.

The router has been designed to perform best when laid flat and not on its side, which is not really a limitation and you can easily get around to doing that. A briga, however, is heating. With a peak temperature of 40 degrees Fahrenheit, it’s definitely something you should think about.

Sa unutrašnje strane, C5400X pokreće Wi-Fi čip Broadcom BCM4366 koji uključuje MU-MIMO za povezivanje s nekoliko istodobnih uređaja i oblikovanje snopa za podešavanje prijenosa kako bi se maksimalno iskoristili hardver prijemnika. To znači da je C5400X sposoban da vam da 1Gbps preko svog 2.4GHz, kao i 2.167Gbps na sva svoja dva 5GHz kanala, što je laički rečeno, "prilično uredno".

The C5400X does not svojstvo geo-filtering, something you will find on the Netgear Routers in the same bracket, but what you do get is inbuilt VPN for true incognito browsing.

Another point to note here is that while the C5400X is clearly designed and built for gaming, the malicious content filtriranje and a rock-solid security package in-built, makes it a good option for a home router as well.

Coming back to the overall design, the C5400X features a glowing TP-Link logo on the top which is white when all functions are normal, and red when there is no povezivanje, simple but very very useful. On the back, we have an input WAN connection and 8 nizvodno ports, which is insane considering the competing routers only offer half as many. On the other side, we have two USB 3.0 ports for printers and datum devices. The other side has individual push buttons for turning the lights off, pausing the internet and cutting the Wi-Fi transmissions, thus making the C5400X into a wired router.

Performance – Anything gaming related needs to show the performance, and in that respect, the C5400X is no pushover. The Broadcom BC4366 WiFi chip has a 1.8GHz quad-core processor with three auxiliary co-processors along with 512MB of storage space and 1GB of RAM. Its triband design has a single 2.4GHz transmitter (1Gbps) and two 5GHz ones (2.167Gbps each) that can rukovati around 5.3Gbps of data flow under ideal conditions.

S 5 stopa, C5400X isporučuje 733.9Mbps, što je očito ispred konkurencije, Netgear XR500 (704.7 Mbps) i Linksys WRT32X (527.6 Mbps). Učinkovitost je u stvari toliko nadmoćna da je jedini usmjerivač koji se može prilagoditi C5400X u pogledu brze brzine njegov mlađi brat, C2300. Jedina stvarna situacija u kojoj C5400X zapravo priznaje poraz je na 100 stopa, gdje je osiguranih 447.1Mbps u odnosu na XR500-ovih 524.3Mbps. U ovom trenutku Linksys nigdje nije na slici.

Drugi aspekt performansi rutera je koliko dobro prenosi širinu pojasa kroz vaš dom. Istina, neke su konstrukcije pogodnije od ostalih, ali uvijek je dobro imati usmjerivač koji može savladati prepreke i pružiti bešavnu povezanost. C5400X se dobro snalazi u više situacija i izgrađen je da izdrži prepreke poput metalnih zidova, stropova, pa čak i više stojećih konstrukcija u vašem domu. C5400X s lakoćom rješava prepreke i dometom od 100 stopa, zasigurno ćete dobiti bešavnu povezanost bilo gdje u vašem domu. Štoviše, usmjerivač može podnijeti sulude radne opterećenja kao što su istodobno igranje sesija na mreži, live streaming na trzanje, pa čak i strujanje 4K sadržaja na omiljenoj usluzi streaminga.

Sve u svemu, C5400X je dominantan hardver te obećava i svojim kupcima ne pruža ništa osim najboljeg, bilo da je riječ o igrama na sreću ili čak uobičajenom pretraživanju interneta u domaćinstvu. Nema padova okvira, zaostajanja i naglih kvarova, čime se osigurava sesija bez suza na mreži.

Postaviti - Setting up the C5400X is fairly simple. You can use a connected preglednik to get things going and then monitor the setup using the tether apps available for both iOS and Android.

Postupak započinje odabirom lozinke administratora. Većina usmjerivača na tržištu ignorira ovaj korak, tako da je to pobjeda za C5400X. Algoritam vam govori koliko je jaka ili slaba odabrana lozinka.

Next, pick your time zone and the software then asks how your širokopojasni modem connects with your ISP, with the expected choices: dinamičan IP, Static IP, PPOE, L2TP, and PPTP. You can use the auto-detect feature, which is flawless in case of the C5400X, while you also get relevant QR codes in case you are using your smartphone for the task.

After typing in the names and passwords for the 2.4GHz and pair of 5GHz networks, the interface shows a settings summary for confirmation. Once done, you can restart the uređaj i dobro je krenuti.

Sve u svemu, postavljanje ne bi trebalo oduzeti više od 10 minuta vašeg vremena, što je pošteno s obzirom na prasak za performanse koje ćete dobiti nakon toga.

Sve u svemu, TP-Link C5400X je usmjerivač bez gluposti izgrađen za igrače. Opisane snažne specifikacije, kao i robot i pouzdan dizajn čine ga svima koji su na tržištu usmjerivačima koji će im pomoći u igračkoj karijeri ili čak i nekome tko je na tržištu za usmjerivač koji je takav da ga mora imati. pružit će im bešavnu povezanost po cijeloj kući bez gnjavaže.
