    First of all, this wifi extender worked great. My Router is on the top floor of a three level house, the extender placed on the main (center) floor, and it provided great wifi reception in the concrete basement below. No problems whatsoever with connection, except a reset a couple of times.Almost exactly three years later…. It stopped working completely, and nothing worked to get it to connect again.I spent WAY too much time online trying to figure out why, and it seems the TP Link extender needed a firmware update. A FIRMWARE UPDATE.WHAT THEY DON’T TELL YOU is that it may need a firmware update in the future. Nowhere in the instructions does it mention this. I’m pissed.Every single video I watched, and instructions I read contradicted each other, or were completely crap. I could not find a decent set of real life instructions to update this thing without spending 800 hours trying to figure it out, unplugging ethernet, pluggin in ethernet, blah blah blah… So I bought a new one instead.THEY NEED TO INFORM US OF THIS ON THE INSTRUCTIONS. AGAIN, I AM PISSED.When I set up the new one, I scanned the barcode with my phone, and set it up that way. Maybe in the future (when the new extender needs a firmware update), I can do that with the app. I won’t count on it, though because technology is evil and fickle. THEY NEED TO TELL US THIS INFORMATION, LIKE, “HEY… THIS DEVICE WILL NEED A FIRMWARE UPDATE AT SOME POINT, PLEASE PLAN AHEAD SO YOU DON’T WASTE A MILLION HOURS TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT IS WRONG WITH IT!”Rant over. Thanks.

    Good range extender

    I bought a more expensive one and had to return it. I chose this cheaper option for its replacement. This one was great. Easy to install. Does what I need it to.

    We had trouble connecting our wi-fi garage door opener with our new router. Tried and tried with no success until we connected thru the extender. Yes.

    This thing works even better than expected!

    We have good wifi but certain spots of our house are a little week. I bought it for my husband’s Samsung tablet so he can stream sports. It works great! I even linked our phones and laptop to it.

    Works great

    I bought this extender to improve the signal of my doorbell ring camera. It has been working great and my ring camera doesn’t lose signal anymore. Overall happy with my buy and would recommend.

    Good solution for blind spot in small home

    Very cost effective solution to extend signal to area in home that was receiving poor signal. Placement is key. Make sure you have a receptacle to plug it into that will allow for proper line of signal boost.

    Best extender I’ve tried

    Works better than all the other extenders I’ve tried on amazon. Definitely worth getting two of these instead of one expensive extender with a mediocre signal

    Installs In 2 Minutes Using Tether App – Should Meet All Connectivity Needs

    Brought this to extend wifi in a two story brick colonial. Needed stronger signal in upstairs corners furthest away from the router (also a TP-link product). Have the Tether app and connected two of these extenders – one in front bedroom the other on the second floor. App did all the work. Despite going through a couple of walls and a ceiling I was measuring >50 mbps download speeds. For $16 each, combined with the router I now have wifi everywhere in the house and am no longer paying Verizon $12/month for their worthless router. The router (Archer A7) and these two extenders give me one Wi-Fi signal only for entire house for less than $100 total (router purchased a few years ago).

    Slow speeds

    I have dual band, 5G and 2.4G. On each channel, regardless of how close I am to my router, the top speeds it hits is 64gbs. Aside from that, super sleep and easy to install. Might return it if speeds don’t increase due to the family is a bunch of gamers.

    Still learning how it works

    Arrived quickly and in suitable packaging. Seems like it works well. Not tech savvy so all I can say is when I scan for what’s connected to the main wifi network, all the devices show and none that I am unaware of. Still learning how the device works.

    The screenshots show the speed from my router (16) and from the repeater (96 Mbps).On my patio I didn’t have any loss of speed, thanks to this little huy.Supports both 2.4 and 5 ghz.The set up is very easy with the TP-Link Tether app. Two new Wi-Fi networks were created automatically, using the names of my existing two networks, plus the ‘_EXT’ addition. As a decades-seasoned systems engineer, I’m very satisfied.

    OK but not great

    I will start by saying I have been a fan of TP Link products for a while now. I have had several TP Link USB Wifi Adapter for PC that all worked perfect. I will also say if you are using it for a PC/laptop or maybe a phone you probably will not have many issues (internet went slow now and then and took 3-5 seconds to load pages then would come back to regular speed). In this particular case, for me personally, this is a “you get what you pay for” type of situation. I saw the reviews and the price on sale and bought this for my spare room where my office is. Intent was to use it to extend my current wifi extender for the very best strength I could get for my working laptop. Setup was pretty simple and straight forward. And yes in the room I did excellent signal strength on both bands. The issue is that when using it my work VPN would keep dropping, cutting out all of the programs I use. I also used it with my Roku TV in the same room and it also worked well but about once an hour or so the channel would lock up and repeat what just happened then continue on. I thought maybe it was that I was trying to extend another brand of extender (Netgear) so I reset it and took it to the actual router and tried extending that instead but had the same results. The router is 70 feet away from my office and yet even though the strength is only good and not excellent My VPN and Roku work fine off of it. The VPN still had a hiccup here and there with the other extender but it was much less often. Maybe once every few days instead of 3-4 times a day with this unit. So I just unplugged it and used my current network and no issues with anything.

    Works well once you get it set up!

    Happy with the unit overall, for some reason it wouldn’t connect properly to my sever using the instructions. I found it easiest to connect my laptop to the extender and set it up with a browser.

    Small but powerful!!

    What an awesome Wi-Fi extender. I’ve been setting extenders up for so many years and this is by far the EASIEST EXTENDER TO SET UP!I like that this is a mesh system so when I start adding more around my property my phone will automatically connect to the closest extender/access point. Such an awesome system

    Exactly what I needed and works astonishingly well for a small price

    So far the TP-Link AC750 RE220 Dual-Band WiFi Extender (2019 release) has worked great and suits my needs perfectly.It’s small and visually appealing so you don’t need to worry about hiding a bulky or ugly device. It actually resembles an plugin oil diffuser like a lot of us might have. It is very light weight so it shouldn’t sag from the outlet when plugged in. You will lose an outlet plug and if that’s a problem you can always use an extension cord and put it where ever you want. The front of the RE220 boasts 5 easy to understand LEDs informing you of its status (power, ethernet, WiFi, 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands) and a WPS button. The bottom of the device has a high speed RJ45 ethernet port (this is absolutely golden for wired devices) and a reset button which is recessed so you don’t have to worry about accidentally pushing it and ensuring that you have to mean it when you do use that feature. It is supposed to work with any WiFi router. The mobile app and web user interface also give you management options like enabling the High Speed Mode, restricting particular devices for a specified amount of time and it even lets you turn off the LEDs if they might disturb your sleep or distract you. I personally have not used the extra features as of yet but they sound like they might be pretty useful, especially being able to turn off the LEDs. I think everyone has noticed blinking lights from various devices and they can be super annoying if they’re in your bedroom or visible when you’re trying to focus.The RE220 was very simple to set up with easy to follow step-by-step directions in the box, which guide you through the process and inform you about your options for setup (WPS, mobile app, web UI), where to find the app, a QR code for the app (this is also printed on the box) and the web UI address for setup if you opt to use a computer instead of the app or WPS feature. I chose to use the app which is also very simple which made the process all the more enjoyable. All you have to do is follow the on-screen prompts and it goes smoothly. It has you setup your 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz WiFi bands separately as they each have a password although it’s usually the same and it’s also true that not all networks are dual-band. I didn’t have a single problem during setup. It was quick and painless.The only setup issue I did have was mine. In my haste to get the RE220 going, I didn’t rename the extender’s WiFi signal to match my home network so it caused conflicts with my IoT devices that were trying to talk to each other because the network is password protected and I had actually created a second password protected network. This caused some communication issues. The instructions even tell you that you may want/need to do this but I was in a hurry so I could get other things done and overlooked that. Once the signal was renamed and the password set to match the original network it worked great and without issue. This was very easy to do within the mobile app but could also be easily done using a laptop or desktop computer.I bought this to solve an issue with a device I got a great deal on. I stumbled upon a used Sony Media Streaming Bluray player for $15. I couldn’t believe it and couldn’t pass it up. I didn’t really need it but I was tired of using my phone or laptop to stream movies and video to my bedroom TV. It was always a hassle and the only alternative was a wired connection directly to the TV and that in itself was a pain and more so if I wanted to play any of the discs that I have since my laptop doesn’t have a built-in disc player and I have to connect the USB BR/DVD/CD player. The problem was that the player required a wired network connection and not wireless. I can’t complain since it was practically free. I don’t know about you but my house does not have wired ethernet. I could do that myself but it’s time consuming and the money needed cancels any value in my purchase, in fact, it probably would have exceeded the cost of a brand new media player and I didn’t want to make that kind of investment just to get a media player on the network. My TV is a few years old and it doesn’t have WiFi or smart apps itself and I’m not ready to spend a few hundred just to get that kind of experience there either. Not when I can work around it for much less. This network extender allowed me to connect the Bluray player to the network using a spare network cable that was laying around from an old printer or maybe it was an outdated gateway from an internet old service provider. Regardless, the cable was brand new in the package and all I had to do was plug it into the TP-Link RE220 extender and my Bluray player and BAM the player was on the network and asking me to install updates. To top it all off, the WiFi signal in my bedroom is much stronger and everything using the RE220 signals have a much more reliable signal. That’s not to say my Arris Gateway didn’t give me a good signal to begin with, it’s just a stronger signal.The speed of the TP-Link RE220 AC750 WiFi Extender works great for watching Prime videos in HD. I get full 1080p just fine. There is always a loading delay but I think that’s the player which is a few years old so the memory and processor speed is not top of the line but it was $15 so again I’m not complaining. If you plan on watching 4k Ultra video, you may want to do some research to see if the TP-Link RE220 AC750 WiFi Extender meets your needs speed-wise, but it claims 433 MBps for 5 GHz and 300 MBps for the 2.4 GHz bands which should be fast enough but it’s not GigaBit speed for sure. I don’t have a GigaBit speed router so it wasn’t a concern. My TV isn’t 4k Ultra capable so I didn’t worry one bit about it. I did notice that when I watched a movie using the Amazon Prime app on the player, it checked the connection speed and displayed the result and it’s exactly what I see on my Samsung Galaxy S9+ on the home WiFi so the RE220 does not seem to be slower than the Arris Gateway my network is running on to begin with and the only speed issues I ever see are when too many devices are simultaneously using too much bandwidth (multiple HD TVs, cell phones, laptops, remote set top boxes, etc). First world problems…am I right? The only solution there is a faster internet connection and router which hasn’t been necessary and saves money and even if I did upgrade I think this WiFi extender would still suit my needs.

    Great little product

    I recently purchased the TP-Link WiFi Extender, and it has proven to be a game-changer for my home network. My internet router is inconveniently located in my bedroom due to the apartment complex’s infrastructure, causing a frustratingly weak WiFi signal in my living room. This became particularly problematic as I work from home, and the unreliable signal was causing disruptions during virtual meetings.Enter the TP-Link WiFi Extender, a solution that lives up to its promises. The installation process was a breeze, and within minutes, I had it up and running. The simplicity of just plugging it into the wall and completing the setup through a user-friendly app was a welcome surprise. No technical expertise required – a major plus for someone like me who isn’t tech-savvy.Since incorporating the extender into my network, the transformation has been remarkable. I no longer experience signal drops, and all my devices, including my laptop crucial for work meetings, now enjoy a consistently strong and fast connection. The reliability has significantly improved, eliminating the stress of interruptions during critical work moments.What sets this product apart, besides its stellar performance, is its affordability. The TP-Link WiFi Extender offers an effective solution without breaking the bank. I highly recommend this product to anyone facing similar WiFi challenges. It has made a noticeable difference in my daily work routine, and I am thoroughly satisfied with its performance. In conclusion, if you’re in need of a reliable and cost-effective WiFi extender, the TP-Link is an excellent choice.

    Understanding How It Works

    I am writing this review because so many people are giving it a bad review because frankly they do not know how the technology works. First off it is a signal extender and not a booster, meaning it will extend the signal you have but it will not increase the speed! The speed is only as fast as the signal coming into the house to your router! In my case I was not getting a good signal to my Ring Camera because the signal was not strong enough! You basically put the extender between where you are getting a good signal and where you want the signal to extend too. For example I used a speed tester app to find the best signal in between the router and where the signal is going!I have read several comments that say you need to understand how it works and doesn’t work. First off if you don’t know how the technology works then you don’t need to be writing a review. Other reviews said it creates a second SSID and they keep getting disconnected switching between the router and the extender! I will say this it was super easy to install just download the app by scanning the QR code in the instructions manual. Once the app is open create an account and follow the instructions. YES by default it creates a second SSID!Here is were you have to understand the technology. If you don’t want certain people for example to have access to the extender you can have a second passphrase so that only people you want to have access can. If you just want to extend the network throughout the house you have to name the SSID the same as the router SSID as well as the passphrase. What this will do is when you move into that part of the house your phone will automatically switch to the closest signal which is the extender. Yes you will be disconnected from one and connected to the other, but because the SSID and passphrase are the same for you it will be instantaneous! if you are listing to music or watching a video because of the buffer time you will not have any loss of service!In conclusion It is working as intended and doing what I needed it to do. I have a 200mbps connection from the cable company and I was getting 7mbps at the camera and now I am getting 65mbps and the camera is working so much better! The reason I am only getting 65mbps is because although the signal strength is better it’s not 100% full signal. I know their are other Extenders with better range but most of them have external antenna’s and I was putting this in the kitchen and wanted it to look as neat as possible for my wife.

    Does the job but with quirks

    I purchased this to extend my Internet in my office as my printer was in the corner, and technically farthest away from the router. Did extend the signal, and I intended to use the same SSID NETWORK BUT THIS CAUSED PROBLEMS.SET UP WAS EASY. AND FIGURING THE NETWORK IS VERY EASY.PERFORMANCE is the issue I had as I suspect they were signal collision or crowding in areas of overlap with the main router, and the transition did not work as you would expect such as with mesh network. Given that this is not a mesh I’m not sure if that was realistic expectation, but I really had to use the same SSID and that DID NOT WORK.I think if you did a new SSID.. it would not cause issues.

    Outstanding Customer Service

    TP-Link has outstanding customer service. I bought a RE220 WiFi extender from TP-Link and it worked fine for about five months. Then it just stopped, and I could not reestablish a connection to my WiFi. I contacted the company by phone and found them to be very easy to deal with. The customer service agent and I went through a few questions, he decided it was not working correctly and told me to return it. When I received the refurbished unit, I had no luck in establishing a connection to my WiFi. I decided to let it go and just move on. However, an agent at TP-Link, Rosh, kept encouraging me to try it again and even offered to call me. After a few more tries, I realized the mistake was mine. There was a crucial step in the installation video that I had missed. The refurbished device works fine. Many thanks to Rosh and the customer service crew at TP-Link.

    Work great!

    I bought another brand of extenders before these and they never worked. These were a different story, after downloading the app, installing these were a breeze. I have one downstairs on the opposite side of the house where my router is and one upstairs. We were having serious connection issues before and not with the extenders, no connection problems at all. Our internet is super fast now, so thankful!

    Who knows if it works

    I can’t really tell if it made the Wi-Fi capability in my house better. It seemed like it didn’t and it made it worse. Also, the worst part which I just figured out was that it disable peer to peer communication. This means that if you have Apple HomePods, it no longer works in terms of communicating with each other. I was having a hard time figuring out why and then I realized when I unplugged or disabled the extender, all was back to normal again. Same goes for any smart lightbulbs.

    Fantastic Coverage

    After YEARS of using a very good brand wifi extender system (a base unit and 4 nodes), I purchased one of these units. My coverage improved dramatically. My guest house, outdoor entertainment area, external cameras and devices all work so much better.The guest house, which is about 20 yards away from my main house has the best signal and coverage. I can’t believe I put off purchasing this unit. I purchased an additional unit for my main house.Yes, you can get an inexpensive, easy to install fix for your wifi reception.

    For the price, it is doing what we need it to do

    Just had new flooring installed in our Den, and the hardwired cat 5e ethernet cable I had routed under that baseboard to a hub got a nail or two in it by the installers… rendering our hardwired connection useless. So now I am stuck with wifi only in the Den. Even though I have Wifi 6 which is good, I still stronly prefer wired ethernet as much as possible.The good news is that wifi works at full speed on all devices in the Den without the extender (500 down / 20 up which is my max internet speed), except for an old XBox One that really needs a hardwire connection as wifi is defective on the unit.. So I bought this just to use the ethernet port to connect to the XBox One to the internet.For the price I paid (~$15 shipped w tax), I got what I expected (an older unit that is not as fast as current gen) but it serves the purpose we bought it for (ethernet port for the Xbox One only). Testing the ethernet port using my laptop, it is connecting as 100 base T (not Gigabit), and DL speeds are 98 down / 20 up…. Connecting to the Extender SSID via wifi, it is about 140 down / 20 up, but we will never use it as a wifi extender…. Ever.Good enough for the old Xbox One as stated..

    It Works- But You Get What You Pay For

    Many factors come into play between what a device can do under ideal circumstances and configurations. Still, my 400 Mbs internet connection at my central modem versus the speed when it gets to my backyard home office (about 100 feet) is 30 Mbs on my 5 Ghz band. I bought another wireless repeater, and the rate was approximately the same still (maybe a couple of Mbps improvement)- the only real difference was that the signal was more stable, which is something- luckily, I bought this product at the same time intended to be used as range extender/wireless bridge because I have a VoIP office phone, and I discovered swapping the two in their respective primary roles gave me a connection in the 70-100 Mbps range on the 5 GHz band portion of my network. In short, the TP-Link RE220 appears to be stronger in range extension capability than the “WiFi Extender, 2023 Fastest WiFi Booster 1200Mbps Dual Band (5GHz/2.4GHz) WiFi Extenders Signal Booster for Home, Internet Booster WiFi Repeater Covers up to 10000sq. Ft and 45 Devices (Black)” Still, Unfortunately, it was harder to get this device (TP-Link RE220) to work as a wireless bridge than the other device; I had to run the Ethernet connection troubleshooter tool on Windows multiple times before it started working as a wireless bridge which was ironically what I bought this unit to do initially since it specified it could do that in its specs and produce information on Amazon. The only frustrating part is that on the same side of the room, my range extender (when testing either device mentioned), which is about 40 feet from the central gateway modem, the Mac computer pulls in ~400 Mbps from the gateway modem. At the same time, the repeaters could only pop out, even within a couple of feet of them, register (Andriod phone and said Mac running by Ethernet from the repeaters only) a signal with a top speed of just barely 100 Mbps. Placing the repeaters within 10 feet of the central gateway home modem and comparing the rate only registered ~150 Mbps, getting the top Mbps speed in a typical house setup is unlikely. Thus, the specs must have been taken in an open lab with nothing between the originating internet modem/router and the devices themselves… Moving the units in repeater mode closer to the house towards the modem only made the signal that reached the home office weaker- thus negating any benefits of the repeater sending out a faster signal due to being closer to the main home modem/router.One ding I give both devices is that I was unsuccessful in using the Wi-Fi-based setup option based on logging onto the default mode signal from the unit and putting in the specified URL to access the setup wizard. There was an app one could use, but I only had success getting to work by plugging each device via their respective ethernet ports to a dedicated computer with an ethernet port and accessing it through the ethernet connection. Otherwise, the setup would fail once the WiFi configuration changes took effect. I’m glad I had an ethernet cable and the intuition and computer savvy to use it that way (it is in the instructions- but how to get it to set up through the ethernet connection is not as spelled out as lower-skilled users could require without needing to consult another more advanced computer user), or I would have never gotten either device to work as intended.Devices like these are why less tech-savvy people hire people to set up their computer networks. If the set-up by Wi-Fi worked as the instructions described, the set-up would be a breeze… but in practice, it doesn’t (at least for me), and that is my biggest complaint, besides the out-of-touch-with-reality specs either product lists in their descriptions on Amazon.TLDR edition: If you are looking to speed up your connection to a remoter part of your dwelling or property, this is likely only going to be able to triple the speed you would get from an unassisted home router, not ten times the speed or the speed at the source router- even if you have Gigabyte per second plus internet packages.A much more pricey unit with more transmission wattage and larger/longer antennas may get you gateway modem/souter speed connections even in distant parts of your dwelling space or backyard these units will give you. Nevertheless, you will see that kind of performance from these units under normal operating conditions. You get what you pay for; it has solved my unstable and overly sluggish connection problem, which prompted the purchases in the first place. I’ll take a stable/strong 70-100 Mbps connection in my home office over a shotty/weak 20-30 Mbps any day of the week, especially for the price I paid (I got them on Prime Days sales prices).

    Makes all the difference!

    Took a chance on this based on some of the reviews and based on the fact that we have Xfinity. But I used the app to set it up. I had to move it to a location a little closer to the Xfinity modem than I thought I would. But once I set it up, it connected and it has been working great!I almost gave it 4 stars for the “wifi” rating signal just because I feel it should have been able to receive the xfinity signal a little further away from the modem than it is. But the signal that it generates is definitely strong enough for what I need to reach the rest of the house so I gave it 5 stars.I did not need tech support – so I have no idea what their level of service is.All in all I would recommend it and it does work with Xfinity in case anyone was unsure!

    Powerline alternative.

    It did exactly what I needed it to do, which was to let me move my Arlo base station to a better location. The port is 10/100 so keep that in mind if purchasing.There was 1 small hiccup with setup via app on iPhone with text entry, but that was resolved by closing and re-opening it. I would probably suggest getting someone relatively tech savvy though to help since instructions might not be clear for the average person.It will create 2 networks, copying the name of the original one but adding a _EXT suffix.The Tether app itself is great, I opted to hide the SSIDs since I just needed to move my base station.

    Works, but had some trouble when installing a second one

    It does what it says it does, you will get a stronger, but slower (by mbps) connection in another part of your house. The net result for me though was a positive, as I got a more reliable connection for video conferences, even though the measurable download speed dropped when switching to the extended network. (Like a drop from ~250mbps to ~60mbps). So overall pleased. Was supper finicky trying to get a second one of these added to the app though. Took multiple setup attempts for app to recognize, was frustrating enough to dock a star.

    This Device Works

    I had one bar of Wi-Fi with a TV in a bedroom. Trying to stream video from Netflix, Paramount or others was spotty. Many times, the TV said not connected to the internet even though I was. installation is easy. Just plug it in and wait for Solid green light, then press the wps on the device and your router and wait for all green lights to show on the tp link. Then you just unplug it. Last, plug it into a plug by the low Wi-Fi area. After all lights on the device are green it’s ready to go. After I installed this TP link device, my Wi-Fi strength on the TV went from 1 bar to 5 bars and I no longer have any streaming problems. For me, this product works

    Easy to set up

    I was pleasantly surprised at the improvement this made to my wifi coverage. I added the app to my phone and just followed the easy directions. Took about 10 minutes to get this setup and working. Once it was, it doubled the strength of the wifi in my back bedroom at the far end of my house. Does exactly what I needed it to do at a very affordable price point. Less than $22.00 delivered!

    big improvement

    My wifi router is about 30 feet away, but it is in another room, and the signal must pass through a couple of walls. I thought the signal was good, but I tried this booster to see if it could be better. Right away, I noticed a big improvement in the speed of my downloads. The signal is also more consistent and rarely drops out. I would recommend using this signal extender even if you don’t think you need it. You can always benefit from a stronger signal.

    Great product!

    This was a dream I needed we had been messing with the internet company for months try to get our internet fixed finally they just told us it’s the router and we should buy a new one considering the one we had was pretty expensive I just didn’t want to. So I decided to try this and boom I have great signal and speeds all through out my house now no more lag for those video games. Thank you

    Eventually got it to work

    Setup through the app was not easy and did not connect as it should. Took way longer that necessary to get this working right. Needs clearer instructions also. Router is in an upstairs bedroom and we placed this on the first floor. Works great to get wifi to our finished basement. Previously, we could barely keep connected.

    Range is ok

    I didn’t want to spend too much on an extender. I went with a little less expensive since the reviews were pretty good. I have cameras set up around my home and sometimes it has trouble connecting to them. I may have to add another to get more coverage but all in all the product does its job. A+

    Would recommend for gaming

    I was lagging so much with a wifi service that was supposed to the best in the class for streaming and gaming wasn’t to happy so I got the wifi extender and now I’m not lagging and my gaming has never been so much faster if I could rate a higher star rating I would give this 20 stars

    easy to use

    Plugged in unit halfway between router & dead zone. During setup, I overrode the default extender name (xxxx_EXT) & set the extender to the same SSID as the main router’s SSID. This provides seamless switching of mobile phone as it’s moved from 1 area to another. I also disabled the extender’s 2.4 GHz network to allow only 5G connections. Seems to be a good value.

    The best WiFi extender so far…

    This is the third WiFi extender that I’ve tried in our two-story home. We have a detached garage with workshop, a detached gazebo, and extensive wrap-around decking. The property has always been plagued with multiple dead zones, inside and out.So far this extender is the best by far. It was the easiest to install and configure, coming online in the first try, and it did so wirelessly. And after two or three test locations, we found a spot just within the perimeter of our router’s range that allows it to provide adequate signal everywhere we need it.It’s been part of the network now for well over a month, a network of two desktops, a laptop, a tablet, two smart TVs, two cellphones and a 24/7 webcam, and it has not dropped out once. We even had a power outage that lasted for three hours, and when the power came back up, it reconnected to the router automatically.One other plus is that it’s not ugly… no visible antennae sticking out to annoy my wife, and its color is “neutral”, according to her.Lastly, although not the least expensive of the models I’ve tried, it’s proof (for those, like me, who consistently need it) that you get what you pay for.

    Wifi extender

    Hi, I use to have dead wifi spots in my house specially in my garage that is like 50 feet distance from my router so I decided to buy this thing to see if I can reach some wifi, but I surprise how this wifi extender gave me more wifi, so now I have very good wifi in my garage, I am very happy no complaint, thank you

    TP-Link WiFi Extender workd great at a reasonable cost

    This TP-Link extender is very compact and easy to set up in minutes. Their one-mesh feature means your device will automatically switch between this device and your main router and back again as you move around, but the feature is not compatible with all routers, including mine. However, this just means that when you enter a dead zone, you have to manually switch to the extender. Not a big deal. Still very much worth the reasonable price.

    Easy setup, easy solution

    I mainly was.looking at this product to add a hardwire to and Xbox 360 that won’t connect to my new router. As it turns out, the 360 connected perfectly to the extender with out even needing an Ethernet cable. This is a great solution for retro systems that have a hard time with modern wifi signals. My case my be unique however, it solved my problem.

    Does a good job extending

    The cable company wanted to charge me and addition $15 to on my bill to use their extender. (The devil is a liar) I said no to that and decided to try this one. It works well and it helps give my blink cam receivers a better connection outside. Set up wasn’t too hard and so far so good at the moment.

    Less expensive isn’t always the best choice. TP I’m Back!

    I was disappointed that my other brand wi fi extender didn’t even last a year but when I saw the TP WI Fi extender on sale for less then $20, I decided to get it dude to my previous experience with the brand. I had previously had the TP brand WI fi extender and it had lasted several years and was able to reach out to our building behind our house very easily without any disruption in the signal bur when it went out I decided to go with a less expensive brand and ended up paying out more money because I had to replace it within 6 months of buyingThe TP WI Fi extender also reaches out to t h e building behind our home without any disruption either and it was easy to install with the app download. I am happy with my purchase and would recommend not necessarily going with the less expensive one because it ,as not last as long as the more expensive brand. I was lucky to find this extender on sale at Amazon when I did, thank God for Cyber Monday sales. MI would recommend this brand to family, friends and everyone who needs a extender with range and durability.

    Works as it supposed to

    I am using T-Mobile home internet, which modem sits in my work area first floor. I can get really good (over 400 mbps) speed in any room in the first floor. But the only room in the second floor that I can get decent signal is the main bedroom directly over the T-Mobile modem. The far end bedrooms are barely getting 3 to 7 mbps speed. Cannot watch any movie stream with that kind of signal. With this TP AC1200 extension, which I plugged in the main bedroom second floor, I am getting 200 mbps. The far end bedrooms are getting at between 50 to 70 mbps. Not great, but good enough to stream movies. You need to download TP Tether app to make it all work. The app confused me for a minute. Once I figured it out, everything works as it supposed to.

    works great as a bridge to ethernet

    I am using this as a bridge to a ethernet wired printer. I turned off the wifi repeater functionality (you just turn off the ssid for both the 2.4g and 5g channels).My router is a tplink deco mesh system.Only bad thing is that this requires yet another tplink app to setup. Wont work with the tplink deco app.

    End of dead zone

    Tried several “extenders” to no avail. Little square ones, long wide ones and even a round one, none of which did what I needed it to do. This little jewel did the job and in short order. Follow directions using the App and in no time at all I had full scale signal in the back of the house. Tp-link is becoming my “go-to” for anything dealing with home internet equipment.

    works; simple setup and robust

    Breeze to setup & configure. And it works, and works well. I’m replacing a well known brand product because it would often stop working and I would need to unplug it and restart it. This just runs w/o any intervention needed.

    Easy to Setup with TP-Link Tether App and Works Great!

    This review is for TP-Link WiFi Extender with Ethernet Port, Dual Band 5GHz/2.4GHz , Up to 44% more bandwidth than single band, Covers Up to 1200 Sq.ft and 30 Devices, signal booster amplifier supports OneMesh(RE220). I got this Wi-Fi extender to get a stronger signal for the front of my home because the actual router is in the back of the home on the first floor. It was super easy to set up with the TP-Link “Tether” app. However, it was only easy after I turned off my SurfShark VPN. Don’t waste time trying to go around the VPN, if you have one installed and running. You must turn it OFF completely while you set up the extender or you will waste a lot of time trying to do everything to no avail. Trust me, I had this same issue when I was setting up my Tapo cameras. Once I recalled the issue, I knew immediately to shut off the VPN and the set up was completed in only a few minutes. You can turn the VPN back on after the setup is done but until then, leave it OFF. TP-Link doesn’t mention this anywhere in their setup instructions so I did waste a lot of time when setting up my first Tapo camera. One of the reasons why I got this extender is that I already have a Tapo account and the Tether app uses the same credentials (i.e. userid/password) since they are all part of TP-Link. The app is nice and simple. Once I’m in the same network, I can check to see what’s connected and block, if necessary. I can also Hide SSID from being broadcasted, which I like. I don’t like how the password is not hidden or * out, which is odd. There are other advanced options but I rarely mess with those settings like LED Control, Wi-Fi Coverage, Schedule Power Off, etc.The unit is now in my upstairs guest room over the garage and it’s working great. I don’t have dropped signals anymore when I’m outside in the front yard so I’m really happy. The only hassle for me was to have to switch all my cameras over to the new Wi-Fi signal which meant resetting the cameras and doing the setup all over again on each one of them. I had to climb back up to the ceiling / roof to get that done which was not too fun. Overall, the Tp-Link extender was very easy to set up using the app and it does help extend my Wi-Fi signal so I would recommend it. They should include instructions about turning off VPN during setup though. I’d give it a 4.8/5.0 – 07/08/2023.

    Great for the Price

    I needed to setup an older computer for my granddaughter’s house. She just has Wi-Fi and the computer would not be by the modem. I also tried USB Antenna and for whatever reason the computer would use around 90% CPU with the USB Antenna. Ethernet cable connection no issues. So I needed to have a device that connects to Wi-Fi and has an Ethernet port. This device has one port. I struggled a little bit with setting up. I added the TP Tether app and I also went to the Between the both of them I was able to set a password on the extender. I used the app after connecting my phone to the extender. Then scan for the Wi-Fi and type in the password. I had to do this nearby the Wi-Fi Modem. When done unplug and go to the area I wanted to use it. It works great with good signal and the old computer has no problem with using Ethernet connection.
