quite interested in getting this device however due to the nature that it is not 802.11ac certified (as reminded by friends that may have issues in future with AC devices), anyone knows if 802.11ac standard can be achieved through firmware flashing or it has to be hardware compliant?

It should be just a firmware update since its mentioned that the C7 supports 802.11ac. However, for peace of mind, perhaps u can email TPLink support to confirm.

My wireless setup consisting of a pair of Archer C7s operating in WDS wireless bridging mode. Separated by 2 walls and 30ft apart, i'm getting a consistent 25MB/sec throughput.

wrote to TP-Link but don't quite understand what the response is..and don't think the person know what I was asking also..

"right now, the 802.11ac is not standardised, and the Archer C7 is our first 802.11ac wifi product this 802.11ac can not be flashed by the firmware, we have already submitted the certificate, and I am afraid that we can not provide you the details certificate"

think must ask them in Chinese since it's Taiwanese company

Seems like they are not willing to commit since 802.11ac standard has yet to be ratified. If u are concerned about interoperability between router and clients for 802.11ac, why not wait till the official ratification of 802.11ac before getting one.
