    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Good range extender

    I've been using this to extend wifi about 75 feet. This is plugged in about 60 feet away from my router and the signal then has to go through about another 30 feet of fiberglass wall and aluminum framing, wiring, plumbing, industrial machines and still had very usable speed. The key to these extenders is it to place it where you still have a good signal from your router and not where your getting a weak signal to try to boost it! To many people don't know the proper placement.

    Amazing Range Extender – Now I’m Getting The Speed

    Posted .

    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.)

    Setup a total no-brainer (disclaimer: I was a network engineer). Almost plug-and-play. Range extension is great within its specified range (RTFM folks--I'm using this between a router and a computer that are only 30' apart in a railroad apartment). It fixed my problem for cheap! ZOOM!

    I wanted a way of getting better wifi coverage in my patio and for my Ring Devices. It does actually help. I'm able to keep my connection now at either 2.4 ghz or 5.0 ghz when in my backyard. As for speed, It's rated at 1300 mbps at 5ghz. My iphone will clock at pretty solid 500 mbps. If I switch to the extender, at the same exact spot , it only clocks at 150 tops. I mean, for Iphone and Ipad usage thats good enough, My main goal was to improve reception. I now get full wifi bars when connected to extender. Download the app to set it up, much easier and intuitive. Also, the three antennae are pretty cheaply made.

    Extended my network range all over my house

    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.

    I bought this to replace my N300 range extender. I use this with an AC1900 router. I get much faster speeds from this range extender now. It was well-reviewed by many electronics websites and that helped me decide on it.
