    As good as it was reviewed. Only issue I had was yard and garage. 17,500 square foot yard is now almost completely covered and the detached garage has a signal. Read the instructions and setup is fast and easy if you have a modern router they will find each other with two button pushes. I just purchased a new wifi modem and it didn't connect to the 5G the first time but now it is right as rain.

    Following each step in EXACT ORDER and both 2.4ghz & 5ghz lights stay solid blue everytime !! If you have to unplug and move to a different/new location >> all 3 lights stop blinking = good to go ! No need to push the wps button a 2nd time.

    The TP Link WiFi extender does a good job at extending WiFi coverage. I put it in the mud room to extend coverage to the security camera on the garage, and I no longer have interruptions in recordings. I give this product 3 stars because of the size and price of the product and difficult setup. The product is about the size (height and width) of two hands together. It also has a bright blue light that you can’t turn off. It’s somewhat of a good thing if you want to use it as a night light.

    Using it as an Access Point (AP) gives it better performance than a simple Range Extender (RE). No need to try and boost a weak signal to begin with. We have Cat-6 throughout our home, so running this AC1750 from one of our network ports as an AP extends a Wi-Fi signal that our Verizon Wi-Fi 6 router cannot accomplish. We use this TP-Link-AC1750 (RE450) in the basement and a TP-Link-AC2600 (RE650) also as an RE on the 2nd Floor.

    This was exactly what I needed to extend Wifi in my home, signal is amazing and the app makes it super easy to set up and place in tbe perfect area of your home. It picks up both the standard WiFi and the 5G WiFi and extended both signals.

    Amazing Range Extender – Now I’m Getting The Speed

    Posted .
    This reviewer received promo considerations or sweepstakes entry for writing a review.

    Long time users of the internet can remember modems and dialup. I had two phone lines so I wouldn’t tie up the main phone line. I then progressed to DSL and finally cable. The instant internet connections were glorious – and then came WiFi. I thought I was in heaven! However, there was one problem. My house is long and the cable came in at one end of the house and that’s where my router was located. I had great coverage at that end of the house but was a little spotty in the other end. I have an Airport Extreme base station and was very happy with it. I had tried other range extenders, but they seemed to slow down my connection and they proved to not be very reliable. So when I had the chance to try the TP-Link AC1750 RE450 Range Extender, I was expecting to be disappointed as I was with the other range extenders. Boy was I surprised! The first thing you notice about the AC1750 is it size. It’s not small. The electrical plug is at the bottom of the unit and covers most of the other plug in your electrical outlet. This is a small price to pay for the performance – more on that in a bit. It is 6.5 inches long and 8 inches with the middle antenna extended. It is 1.5 inches deep and 3 inches wide but 5.5 inches wide with both side antennas flipped up. Once you plug it in, a blue LED power light lets you know that it is ready to go. The quick instruction guide follows you through the set up. There are two options – using a web browser and using WPS. I used the web browser. In your Wi-Fi settings you will select TP-LINK_Extender_2.4GHz and then go to your web browser of choice and enter http://tplinkrepeater.net. Use admin for both the username and password. You will be prompted to change both of these and then you will be guided through the rest of the setup process. I selected to keep the existing SSID and to have both the 2.4GHz and 5 GHz networks show as one. When the settings are to your liking, the extender will reboot and you will set the 2.4GHz and 5GHz light lit up. The large circular button will have a blue ring around it if your extender is in a good location (at least halfway between the router and your dead zone) and red if it is too far away. Now for the real test. Did it help my dead spot and increase my speeds? I know that the 2.4 GHz band can travel farther, but the 5 GHz is better because it can transfer larger amounts of data and is less congested. I used a Wi-Fi app to test the coverage on my Mac. The results are shown in the pictures. I was in the middle of my house and could barely see the 5 GHz band before the extender, but after I was not only seeing it there but everywhere in my house! I recently upgraded to a 30 Mbps internet plan and was only getting that in the bedroom above where my router was located. As you can see in the picture, I was not getting the speed I was paying for. This picture was taken at the complete opposite end of the house! I went from 15 Mbps to 34 Mbps. There is also an Gigabit port if you want to run an Ethernet cable to it. I can not sing the praises of this range extender enough. With all the streaming and downloading that is being done in my home, the increased speeds and coverage is amazing. If there are any problems, it comes with a two year warranty and 24/7 technical support. It says on the box it will work with any W-Fi router. It played very nicely with my Apple Airport Extreme. I’m sure that it you get this extender you will not be disappointed!! (This is a review of a free product received by TP-LINK as part of the review program.)

    This is extremely easy to set up and use. My only complaint is it won't always switch off the extender back to the original router. It always will switch when I am closer to the original router. I have one distant room that comes in better on the original router, but it always stays on the extender. The only other downfall is it is much larger then other extenders I have seen. It is so big, it limited where I could plug it in. Otherwise, I LOVE it.

    I live in a separate unit apart from the main house, and before I got the extender, I was getting one bar. Once I plugged In the Wi-Fi extender I’m getting a solid three bars and good consistent signal.

    I love this extender. I have a TP-Link AX3000 router and this extender was simple to integrate. I use the TP-Link Tether app to install and manage the network including this extender. I have a very smart house with over 40 connected devices. I let the extender do the work. I setup the 2.4 and 5.0 ssid with the same name. So when I'm adding a new device, the network knows how to determine the correct connection (router or extender and 2.4 or 5.0) to balance the traffic. I have a large one story home and previous to adding this extender, we would periodically get device not active messages. I think my network was too crowded. Now we never get this message. This extender also solved the problem of going thru the exterior walls to get to the devices in my yard. I'm not really a techie. But it didn't take much understanding to get this extender installed and integrated into my network.

    Over the years I have purchased numerous range extenders and they are all sitting in a drawer gathering dust because they didn't work. Most were difficult to set up and would drop connection and require rebooting constantly. This item works! Setup was a non-event. I pushed a button on my Fios Quantum Router and a button on this unit, watched the lights flash for a few moments, and the setup was done. Not only that, but the unit has not had a hiccup once since being placed into service. It has extended my wifi to the far regions of my home giving acceptable speed and a seamless connection. Also, unlike the comment made by one of the other reviewers, I still had the use of the second plug on my standard 2 plug outlet. I highly recommend this TP-link range extender.

    Overall, I cannot recommend this extender enough. It's a premium product that truly lives up to its promises of efficiency, performance, and quality. If you're in the market for a top-of-the-line extender that delivers exceptional results, look no further than this. It's simply outstanding.

    I use to have a Linksys wifi extender that i had to manage online. This device with TP-Link is compatible with the Tether App. It makes it soo much easier managing it like getting the device connected to your wifi router, seeing whats connected to the device, channels, and soo much more. I love the convenience. If you have a hard time connecting to 5ghz, be sure to go to the settings on the original wifi router and change the channel to 36 or 42. It’ll connect for sure afterwards

    A little concerned about a few of the reviews where people had issues with their setup, I took the plunge based on the positive reviews and the unit went on an excellent sale so decided I could always take it back if it gave me issues. Glad I did as the setup was a breeze. I have it on the far end of our house to allow for stronger connections with devices in the garage (which is separate and even farther away) and it works perfectly. Those devices would randomly send me notifications of a lost internet signal on a regular basis. Once I set this up (2.4 only, as I needed the range) , those have all gone away. Would definitely purchase, again.

    I was looking for an extender to increase the range of my home WIFI. After reading many reviews chose the AC1750. It was easy to setup and provides ample coverage to the areas where I had none before...including my outside patio.
