    I own a couple of wireless network extenders made by TP-Link and this one works as claimed just like the others. I love these things. I live in an home where for some reason my Wi-Fi signal gets severely limited at the half way point. I have one on one side of my house and another in my garage. I also use one to extend the range when I fly my drones. The range off the extender is about as good as the range on my router. You do need to position right at about the 1 bar point from the signal your replicating / extending to maximize your range but if you do, you add significant range to your Wi-Fi. When I run this at a park, I believe I do get about 14,000sqft in range across the open field I tested it at. If not 14,000sqft it was very close to the mark. I didn't know the speeds for the Wi-Fi where I was so it wouldn't be right to even try to measure but I definitely got about double distance on my Drone which it what I've gotten with other extenders rated at around 15ksqft.

    Plug it in and hit the WPS button

    I installed a second Actiontec FiOS router extender and needed to extend the signal from that router to a detached garage, alleyway access. First split the FiOS to the Actiontec extender (it automatically retrieved the credentials from the original Verizon router) and then connected this extender to my new router that supports both 2.4 & 5 Ghz wireless signals. This was very easy, hit the WPS on the new extender, then on the new router and waited for the light to turn the right color. Done, move it to a backyard adjacent wall and plugged it in. The signal was great at that location and had very good wireless in the garage. I then connected all our smart phones to the 5 G wireless network. Everything is buzzing along just fine and in the last two months, no issues.

    Up and running, WPS setup, not so much

    Like another who reviewed this item, could not get the WPS setup to work. However the quick start guild was spot on. Except, what's not in the instructions: step one when WPS fails, use the reset button before proceeding to Web Browser set up. Why I needed this. Purchased an elliptical and the wife said, in the detached garage, we don't have room for it in the house (we do, she just does not want to look at it). The router is in the front bedroom and the garage has alleyway access, a long way from the router. In the garage I had consistent 1 bar and on a good day 2 bars on the iPad / elliptical machine. With this activated and working, I now get a solid 3 bars on both the iPad & elliptical wireless connection. Very happy and yes, I recommend this product.

    Excellent Extender

    Range extenders continue to get faster and better and this one by TP-Link is no exception. This one comes with 4 antennas and is good for AC2600 dual-band wi-fi over both 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz channels. The setup was very easy and using the TP Tether app to manage configuration setting is very straight forward. In addition, the gigabit ethernet is useful when placing ti near other network devices that could benefit from a wired connection. I have over 25+ devices on my network at any given time and probably half would connect to range extender with no dropped connections or noticeable slowdown. Overall this is a great extender to use.

    I wished you would have carried this in your store in Medford. I had to order it online. Your people in the store were not very helpful. The girl at the return counter was very helpful but not the kid in the department wasn’t at all. It was pretty frustrating. I made a good decision without your stores input. The product covers the area that I needed it to. To bad your staff weren’t able to answer most of my questions. It would have made the process a lot easier.

    This range extender was super easy to set up. In fact, it could not have been any easier to set up. It extends my home wifi range perfectly. I needed the signal to be stronger to a couple of detached buildings on my property and it it did this perfectly. This was the first extender that and I tried and it worked perfectly, so there was no reason to try any other.

    I purchased this for my son who just bought a house. The house is built like 2 houses connected by a breezeway and internet wasn't consistent. He loves the long range of this wi fi extender and is very happy with it. It works well and does exactly as he anticipated and reaches all over his very long house.

    I needed a wireless bridge to connected a wired device to my wireless network. Setup is a breeze. My only wish is that it should have more wired ports.

    I'm using this as a wireless access point upstairs in my house and it has definitely helped with wifi coverage. It was easy to set up and I've had no problems with it.

    The TP-Link works great and really extends the range of my router. In a ranch style house that is spead out- this range extender gives coverage to the far side of the house.

    Well, first of all setting this item up was very easy. Once set up, the item did not work like it states on its advertisement and other websites. I see no difference whatsoever.

      Hi there, thanks for the review and feedback!

      We'll be more than happy to address the concerns you have about your Range Extender.

      If you haven't noticed a significant improvement in Wi-Fi coverage after installing the device, we recommend relocating the unit to a position in your home where the router's Wi-Fi 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.

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

      Thank you again for your feedback. We hope you'll keep TP-Link in mind for your future networking needs.

      Best Regards,

      TP-Link Customer Support

    This was fairly easy to set up and it allowed my wifi to extend to the back door so I could connect my Ring camera.

    It started out working well but the walls were too thick 9they are concrete) so it had to go back.
