Dual band router with 5 fast (100mbps) ethernet ports. Advertised as AC1200 for its 867Mbps (2×2) 5GHz band and 300 Mbps (2×2) 2.4GHz band. It is similar to Archer C20i and C20
Any text with a light background (like this text) provides guidance for creating the Details Page. When you have filled in correct/useful information (instead of any template that's there) remove the text, as well as the <WRAP> that encloses it.
Getting started with a new Device Page
This is an empty template that suggests the information that should be present on a well-constructed Device Page. This means, that you have to fill it with life and information.
There are several “fixme” tags with text on a light background (like this text) throughout this template. As you fill in the page, remove those tags so that people can judge its completeness.
When there are no more “fixme” tags left, delete this one too, along with the <WRAP> that encloses it.
Keep the articles modular
Please include only model specific information, omit bla,bla and put everything generic into separate articles
If you have no time to write certain stuff, link to docs
base-system should lead the way, do not explain this again
→ Basic configuration After flashing, proceed with this.
Set up your Internet connection, configure wireless, configure USB port, etc.
The default network configuration is:
LAN & WiFi
LAN ports (1 to 4)
WiFi 5 GHz
WiFi 2,4 GHz
Switch Ports (for VLANs)
Numbers 1-4 are Ports 1-4 as labeled on the unit, number 0 is the Internet (WAN) on the unit, 6 is the internal connection to the router itself. Don't be fooled: Port 1 on the unit is number 3 when configuring VLANs. vlan0 = eth0.0, vlan1 = eth0.1 and so on.
→ hardware.button on howto use and configure the hardware button(s).
Here, we merely name the buttons, so we can use them in the above Howto.
The case of the Archer C50 is composed of 2 pieces:
Top cover (bluish)
Bottom cover (gray)
Remove the two screws on the bottom cover.
Use a thin object to release the top cover from the bottom cover
Putting it back together
Put the top cover back on
Press until it clicks back nicely to the bottom cover.
Put back the screws
→ port.serial general information about the serial port, serial port cable, etc.
Solder a header as shown in the picture or wires with a connector directly. The device uses TTL @ 3.3V and not a standard RS-232 Serial that operates between 3 and 15V, so do not try to connect it to a common serial adapter: you will certainly fry the serial circuit or even the whole board. There are plenty of USB to TTL and RS-232 to TTL available on the market, just be careful with the voltage: the standard is 5V and it may also damage your board. Look for the ones with 3.3V or with both voltages and a way to switch between them.
Don’t forget that the TX pin of the serial port must linked to the RX pin of the router and the RX to TX!
How to connect to the Serial Port of this specific device:
Resistor R600 and R601 are missing.
