I bought a Smart TV (wireless) that was absolutely dumb! It would not hold a connection to the Internet even though every other Wifi device, even my old Wii, did. I purchased an extender only to find out it needed to be connected to the router. My son and I found this device while searching for a solution. The delivery was exceptional and this product solved the problem. It was extremely easy to set up. The router is on the first floor in the back of the house and tv is downstairs near the front of the house. I thought putting it in the hall midway between would be the best place. The TP-Link told me it was too close. I was able to plug it into the socket with the tv and hardwire the tv. It was the perfect solution. It's so easy to use I'm considering another because with the improved speed, I can can hardwire the laser printer and extend the signal to backyard! Worth every penny!!
Was looking for an easy to configure, solid performing wifi extender. This is being used in a 2,000sq foot home, where the wifi connection is at one end of the house. We had problems with getting a solid connection on the back porch or the other end of the house and this unit resolves that perfectly. Living in Florida, we spend a lot of time on the back porch and were only getting 1 or 2 bars of signal strength. With the TP-Link unit, we now get a solid 5 bars and associated increase in performance. Easy to configure and really like the ability to rename the SSID to match our existing (so it's easy to tell which one we're connecting to). Works great with tablets, phones, Blu-ray player, and Xbox 360. For the dollars, does everything we wanted.
I could not get it to connect to my wireless router. Called their tech assistance (I think in China) and she walked me thru an alternate set up procedure that involved using an included USB cable to link the extender to my computer. Has worked great ever since. Has provided significant extension in WiFi in my house and yard. Extender is about 40 feet from my router, and I am receiving a good Wifi signal at least a further 40 to 50 feet. Only question now is how long it will last.
I subtracted one star for their prescribed set-up procedure not working.
