      Hi,

      Thank you for your review. In your case we recommend relocating the unit to a position within your home where the router's WiFi signal is sufficiently strong; yet far enough from the router to effectively extend its range.

      We also recommend ensuring the extender's firmware is fully up to date using the steps outlined in our FAQ here: https://www.tp-link.com/us/support/faq/1406/

      If you'd like assistance with any of these steps, please send an e-mail with your contact information and a link to this review to USSupportTeam@TP-Link.com and we'll gladly have a Support Agent follow up with you directly.

      Best Regards,

    I moved into multi level home. My office is on the first floor and I could not print due to lack of network. This device took care of this huge problem.

    We were having trouble getting our old extender to work in the back room, and also with newer devices. Bought this because we have a TP-Link router that works fine (within normal range). However, this extender just didn't work right, perhaps we got one that was partially defective? Devices would connect and then be disconnected. The local Best Buy took it back and we exchanged for a different model of TP-Link extender that works correctly.

      Hi,

      If you haven't noticed a significant improvement in WiFi coverage after installing the extender, we recommend relocating the unit to a position within your home where the router's WiFi signal is sufficiently strong; yet far enough from the router to effectively extend its range. Please verify the RE status LED is indicating a solid connection.

      We also recommend ensuring the extender's firmware is fully up to date using the steps outlined in our FAQ here: https://www.tp-link.com/us/support/faq/1406/

      If you'd like assistance with any of these steps, please send an e-mail with your contact information and a link to this review to USSupportTeam@TP-Link.com and we'll gladly have a Support Agent follow up with you directly.

    Tested for a month and it worked really good, sadly I had to return because I decided to upgrade router instead so I no longer had need for it. Good quality and easy to connect

    This item was frustrating. The signal would fall after approx 1hr of connection. I would have to turn off and on to restart the device and get connected again. Though the instructions were easy to follow the device wasn’t a great product.

      Hi,

      If you haven't noticed a significant improvement in WiFi coverage and stability after installing the extender, we recommend relocating the unit to a position within your home where the router's WiFi signal is sufficiently strong; yet far enough from the router to effectively extend its range. Please verify the RE status LED is indicating a solid connection.

      We also recommend ensuring the extender's firmware is fully up to date using the steps outlined in our FAQ here: https://www.tp-link.com/us/support/faq/1406/

    I have had completely consistent viewing on my main television which is located on the opposite side of my home from my router. That’s including using my desktop and sometimes my laptop computers concurrently along with our 2 cell phones. I bought this extender to go with the TP-Link 2-pack (router +one small booster) I originally purchased. The small extender is now located midway between my router and my living room TV. This new range extender is plugged in to an outlet at my TV where I have used the Ethernet outlet to connect directly to the TV. This setup works flawlessly! I’m very happy with this purchase and recommend it highly (NOTE: the TP-Link router and range extender was also recommended in a recent issue of Family Handyman magazine as a more economical and effective range extender to the much more costly products on the market).

    Does what it claims.

    It was not the answer to my problem as indicated by a Best Buy sales person. But it does do what is claimed. Just not what I wanted to do. Customer service days I must have too much interference to get to the spot I wanted to cover even though it is well within the range.

    It works as advertised, I guess. It does not do what I wanted, but I guess there is no product which would by itself. There is probably too much interference and brick in the way.
