Unifi Turbo with New TP-Link Router

TM is currently rolling out a free Internet plan speed upgrade for their Unifi customers and lot of users have already gotten the free speed upgrade. However, some old router cannot support the upgraded speed which result in slow speed and weak WiFi coverage. In this case, you need to buy a new wireless router in order to support the much faster speed. 

A lot of users may opt for a third party replacement router and TP-Link is one of the best router manufacturer. TP-Link recently made an announcement that their TP-Link Unifi router can support the Unifi turbo upgrade. They stated which of their routers model are suitable for what Internet plan you are having. We actually tested several models and we are able to verify the claims by TP-Link are true and legit.

We compiled them into this diagram below showing which TP-Link Unifi routers are suitable for what plan. You can also refer to our TP-Link Unifi router setup guide if you need help to configure your TP-Link Unifi router.

The routers we listed here are the routers that TP-Link is selling in Malaysia currently. We specifically recommended certain models that we think it is really good such as the Archer C7, Deco M9 Plus and Archer C3150.

There are certainly more TP-Link routers out there such as the Talon AD7200 and Archer C3200 but those models are no longer available in the Malaysia and thus they are not listed here.  We also do not include the Wireless N routers as we do not think you should use them with Internet speeds faster than 50Mbps.

  1. Hi my unifi speed was upgraded from 30mbps to 300mbps but I never reach that speed maybe due to still using the Tm router. Which router do you recommend?

  2. I have the Archer AC5400 router but I am only getting 90+ mbps on my wired connection and also my wifi connection over 5 GHz. I checked my LAN cable and it is cat 5e. My LAN card is Gigabit ethernet.

    TM came and checked, on their D-Link router get 700MB +… they say is my router settings. I don’t know where to set. Please advise.

  3. i have Asus RT-AC5300. My unifi speed is 500mbps. So far i can get 500 via wired. in reality, how do i get same 500mbps via wireless. will AC1300 or AC1900 adapter suffice. Any recommendation? thanks

  4. I have the Archer C5 AC1200 router but I am only getting 90+ mbps on my wired connection and also my wifi connection over 5 GHz. I checked my LAN cable and it is cat 5e. My LAN card is Gigabit ethernet.

    Based on the Archer C5 AC1200 specs, the LAN ports are Gigabit ports. So theoretically should be able to achieve 500 mbps.

    Oh yes, I have been informed by TM that I have be turbo-ed to 500 mbps and when I did the hardware check, it says that I need new equipment.

  5. Hi, I just have my unifi upgraded to 500Mbps and tested with WiFi always get about 80-90Mbps. Been called to help centre and told me to use Lan cable cat 5e and above for speed test with computer but even the speed can reach to near 500Mbps with Lan cable which seems useless for me also if WiFi speed still stay below 90Mbps. Currently my router is c60 and shall I upgrade this router to get a better WiFi speed?

    1. You need to change to a better wireless router. The Archer C60 is limited to 100Mbps by design. I suggest getting something like the Archer C6 or C2300 if budget allows.

      1. Hi Alvyn, does the C7 fully support turbo 500mbps as in a stable ping for both wired and wireless connection? TM gave me a D Link AC1200 router and it has a bad ping especially some heavy application e.g. Netflix is using over a wifi connection.
