Engadget recommends the TP-LINK Archer C7 v2

Why don’t they recommend the C9? It’s only thirty bucks more. I don’t see the point in buying another C7, I already have version 1.

Comment says 5 GHz doesn’t work on it, that means they have version 1, therefore they don’t have the router Engadget recommends.

Should probably keep my router and buy something else I don’t need, like a Moto G.

They don’t recommend the C9, so I can’t buy it. They say the C7 is better then the C8. Probably better then the C9 too. To bad I have version 1.

Can I exchange my v1 for a v2? Pretty sure the warranty is over by now though. Maybe if I pay a small fee, I can get a v2.
