    I was sent this item to test and review it. Upon arrival I noticed it was packed very well and it was simple to open and get started. The package included the wifi extender, all the necessary instructions and an Ethernet cable. Once opened up it is practically plug and play. I happen to have a wifi router that supports wifi protected setup (wps) and this made it very simple to connect. 3 easy steps: plug the extender in, press wps button on router and then on extender - Done! You can relocate the extender whenever you want and you don't have to set it up again. The actual performance of the extender has been great. My bedroom is about 50ft from my router and I was usually at 1 bar of reception, but now with the extender placed in the middle of my room and the router I have a full 4 bars. The speed has been great as well. The main reason I wanted a wifi extender was to extend the signal to my bedroom and also to my detached garage. My garage is about 100 ft away from my router and I would usually only get LTE out there. Now with the extender I get 2-3 bars consistently. So to recap: this extender has the easiest set up there could be. I'm able to relocate it at any time if I want the signal to be stronger in a different portion of the house, garage or back yard. The range has been extended by at least 50ft beyond my routers original signal (that's about the farthest I tested it, may go further but I didn't need it any further). It is small, about the size of a night light or glade plug in. I have not run into any problems or issues with it, so I don't see any cons in this extender. I would recommend this to anyone who needs a boost in wifi signal range.

    best wi-fi extender ever

    Posted
    RomReader

    I've tried many a wi-fi extender in the last couple years mostly for the poor wi-fi spots in and around my house. When we're in our backyard, we like to be connected on our phones and tablets too. Many worked well at first but often get laggy after awhile. Have had this RE200 wifi extender for about 3 weeks now & it's been consistently strong with our wi-fi connection. Really quick setup too. Just plug & wait for the lights to come on per the manual (pic 01). Have to connect to its extender wi-fi on my phone/tablet (pic 02). I'm pleased and my kids are pleased with how quick & consistent our connection has been in our backyard. Greatly recommended. Submitted as part of sample program.

    OMG! This is exactly what I needed. I like to use my iPad outside and my router is all the way down the hall on the other side of the house. Plugged this in closer to my patio door and voila....I'm screaming through the Internet now. My games all run smooth with no sputtering or waiting waiting waiting. Configuring was a bit of a pain, had to call the 800 number and the first person gave me WRONG info.....reset it and configured through my iPhone and worked flawlessly. If you have dead spots in your house or you want to extend your signal, this is the answer. My DL speeds are now even higher than what my maximum through AT&T says they should be...love it!

    I bought one of these inexpensive and compact units to extend the coverage of our AT&T U-verse router, which is, of necessity, located in one corner of the house. I put the TP-LINK about 25 feet away in the laundry room where we have some spare outlets, and now I've got wireless coverage all the way through the garage and back yard. I had to use the second of the two suggested methods for connecting it to the main router, but since then, it's worked flawlessly.

    This is my first Tplink product and I'm glad I decided to go with it as the price and performance definitely beats all other competitors even with the big names like Netgear and Linksys , I only faced one issue which i could not resolve, here it goes.. at first when I setup the extended wifi network I chose to make it the same SSID as my current network and noticed that I was having connection issues and some slow performance issues, i was tempted to call support but decided to reset the extender and make the extended network ssid different than the current network, problem disappeared and all is working well since

    This is a good extender at a moderate price. The instructions to connect to my existing WiFi were easy to follow, and setup was quick. The reason I purchased the extender was to plug in a VOIP phone that was in a different room from my modem. The phone worked perfectly when plugged in. The extender only stopped working once in a month. I just unplugged it and plugged it back in, and it worked again. Good value for the money.

    Extender never worked

    I could never configure this device because the extender would not access the internet. I tried for a week with two calls to Customer Service and several email exchanges. Their ultimate conclusion was that I had a defective device and should return/exchange it. I did return it but exchanged it with a different brand, which "configured correctly" the very first time I tried. KUDOS to customer service: they would at least answer the phone without being placed on hold for very long; however, they did not appear to be very tech savvy beyond cookbook suggestions.

    I bought this for my teen because she wasn't getting wifi connection in her bedroom. Once I figured it all out it was as easy as 1,2,3 and it's done! Didn't even take me 10mins! It was up and running in no time. Downside is the instruction manual that it came with is a bit confusing so I went online and search for the instructions and voila! Done! It's been a month and a half and it is still working perfectly with no problems at all.

    I'll say right off I'm usually pretty handy with technical gadgets. I worked in IT for decades although was not a network/wifi specialist. I found the product very easy to configure and the instructions quite clear. I placed it in the middle of my house (my router/modem is located at a far end). Now I have strong/very strong wifi signal everywhere in my house. Finding the best location for the range extender did take some experimentaion.

    My router is located on the lower level of the house. Consequently, I had dead spots upstairs in the bedrooms. After some research, I bought this Wi-Fi extender to solve the problem. I followed the instructions and plugged it in an outlet close to the router and established the signal. Then I moved it upstairs to a location where I still could receive a strong signal. The extender now does the rest. No more dead spots. The unit is compact and not noticeable. I am very pleased.

    I researched the product quite a bit before purchasing. I couldn't decide between this product or a powerline type of product and I ended up with this simply because of price and it works as advertised. My Mac had a hard time getting the WiFi signal from the other end of the house where the awful AT&T router is. But now, there's no issue, repeats the signal out far and fast enough, really enjoying it (also get to use WiFi while I cut the yard for radio on my phone since the signal reaches that far out).

    Easy setup for an expert but can see how a novice may get confused by the instructions a little bit. Overall had it up and running in about 10 minutes with two different routers. Comcast I used for 2.4 GHz range and then I had a Cisco router I used for the 5 GHz. Did this just to see if it would work for the 5 GHz and was impressed that it did. For the price great unit

    I purchased this to extend the wifi signal from my computer room (which is on one end of my house) to my master bedroom (which is on the opposite side of the house) and upstairs bedrooms. For my purposes it works pretty well. It always stays connected, which my last extender had problems with and was the main reason for purchasing this product. Not many complaints about this product and for the price it's a solid performer.

    This product is great if you have some dead spot at home. Setup is very easy. You can duplicate your existing SSID or generate a new one. There is no option to change the passphrase, though. This product does not work if you are in a hotel that requires you enter an e-mail address to login, paid or as a guest, unless I'm missing something in the configuration. Overall this product works great if you have a big home to cover.

    So far I have used this just couple of days but it works well. The big catch when buying this item is if you can't figure out the directions you are not alone. They were complex and I couldn't get them to make sense. I turned to you tube and found many videos that will walk you through the setup of this item from start to finish and you will have it up and running in a blast.

    I bought this because my home security doorbell camera has a very weak wifi card (due to the compact size) and was just out of reach of having a good connection. Fairly easy to set up, and allowed it to connect. However sometimes devices that would have a better signal directly from the router will stay tied to the extender when moving away from it and negatively affect service.

    The TP-Link - Wireless AC750 Wall Plug Universal Wi-Fi Range Extender works for me, I bought it to extend my Wi-Fi range from my home to my RV shed about 50' across my lawn. Plugged it into an AC outlet on my patio, it synched up quickly, and my laptop works fine without the hassle of moving my hub out there.

    I really needed this for an office in remote part of home (from wireless router, that's the opposite side of the house on a lower floor). I was able to configure it in about 5 minutes, then moved it to a location just outside the office. The signal in that office now is 100% bars, it varied between 20-40% previously.

    I needed this to extend a stronger WIFI signal to our home office. After reading several positive reviews I purchased. Installation and configuration was fairly straightforward. The first 2 days the product delivered as hoped. On the 3rd day we were unable to access the internet on any device, anywhere in our home. Finally after unplugging (disabling) the WIFI extender I was back to normal.

      Dear RonW,

      Thank you for reviewing our AC750 Range Extender.

      Based on the scenario you have described, we recommend relocating the Range Extender to a position in your home where your router's Wi-Fi signal is still adequate, and the Range Extender's 2.4G and 5G LEDs are solid green. This will allow the Range Extender to repeat a stronger Wi-Fi signal.

      If you have any further questions or concerns in the future, please feel free to contact our Support Team at the number and/or e-mail address provided below, and an available Support Agent will be happy to assist you.

    Neat little device. Set up after reading the quick start guide. Took about 5 minutes at most in close proximity to main router and my laptop. Once the go lights came on I moved the range extender to a receptacle in the attic above the garage. Now I have 2g and 5g nearly full strength in the garage and front yard as well as better wifi overall throughout the house.
