Working from home required me to set up an office in my workshop. I have so many devices attached to my router and too many walls between my router and my "office" that I had a problem maintaining a signal. This device boosted the signal and my computer is the only device connected to it so I now have fast speed without any signal drops. Installation was very simple and once it's up and running, you don't have to do anything else, just turn on the computer and start working. It works great and didn't require a second mortgage to buy it. If you need a better signal in your network, get this. You won't go wrong.
So far so good. Install wise I did have a little trouble but I'm 77. I tried method one and got lost. So I hoped method three would work. It was a snap almost. After following the instructions I discovered the password I put in did not match my modem. But with the help of the three bars on the search for devices page I found the way to change it. Luckily the instructions are written in plain English, if only I could read it. I did not even have to go to tech support to correct my oops. the instruction pages are that easy to use. Only problem I still have is with my TV, it cant connect to it in normal operation mode. It can find it but just won't connect. However with the ROKU that's plugged into it and using it's internet connect instructions it found it first try in less than 5 seconds. Go figure! I'd buy this again if needed and would suggest it for seniors. Price, install ease and operation are for us older generation that's having trouble keeping up with the new technology.Okay, it's been plugged in for 2 months now. I've been able to connect to it from my shop with a 15 year old Compact computer with a NetGear N150 extender through four walls with blown in paper insulation at a distance of about 150 feet and a 15 foot wide cedar tree. Granted I get no more than 2 bars and sometimes on windy days it loses signal completely. Compare this with the same setup in my shop and cut the distance through the same cedar tree, two insulated walls and only about 110 feet and I get one or two bars to my CenturyLink WIFI modem. Facts give this 5 stars. And this on only service available to us and it's a poor 3 Mbps speed internet. Don't get me wrong though, if your in the country and the only thing you can get is satillite internet this won't improve latency and give you streaming video. This is great but only for range!
I'm the tech support in our house, but am by no means comfortable with that job! But we recently moved our router to the basement to allow us to connect directly into my sons' PS4. This meant the main and top floor lost a lot of Wifi signal so I got this in hopes it would help without costing me a fortune. The set up instructions were super clear and it all went exactly as it said. I downloaded the app (one of three set up options given) and it was very easy to use and get the extender working. Placed it on the main floor of our home and everyone is very happy to now be getting clear signals upstairs and into the garage after we lost all that from moving the router to the basement. Super simple to set up and is currently working great (please note: this is after just one week of use, so I can't speak to the longevity of the extender, but here's hoping!). It does also come with one ethernet connection on it so you can hard wire something like a printer into it if you like (I haven't tried but that's coming soon).
Bought this to use with a Simplisafe Doorbell camera that was dropping its connection and sending jerky video, due to a low wifi signal level.I'm a very experienced hardware/software guy, but I had some difficulty with the initial setup. The instructions give 3 different ways to accomplish this. I tried the Tether phone app first, and hit the wall when it wouldn't allow me to select one of the newly-created _EXT networks.So I tried a second option, which was to use a web browser on a phone, or a computer -- which would have been my preference. But the instructions for using a computer say to unplug the network cable, if one is connected. This of course, implies that the computer can connect via wifi, which is very likely if the computer is a laptop, but not necessarily the case if it's a desktop. (my situation) So I had to keep looking for a solution.I finally ended up using a web browser on my phone and managed to complete the setup. There was some confusion, as my newly-created extended networks initially showed 'no internet' in their status, but that resolved within a few minutes.I then relocated the extender to an outlet which I guessed might provide a good signal to my front door, where the doorbell camera is located. It takes a minute or so for the device to connect to the network whenever it's moved to a different location, but it did connect, and I got status signals indicating that both the 2.4 and 5g networks were functioning.After changing the camera settings to use the new 2.4-EXT network, I saw an immediate improvement. I was able to set the camera to 1080p and observer smooth video, without jerking. And it's not disconnected a single time.Mission accomplished! Thanks TP-Link, for another helpful product!
I had a specific use for this. I have a high end Samsung TV that's out of warranty, and its internal WiFi receiver recently died. (This turns out to be a fairly common problem with older Samsung TV sets.) That killed my access to Netflix and any other Internet apps built into the TV, but aside from that problem the TV works great.I needed an Internet connection at the set to use the hardwired port for Internet access, and this unit connected to my home WiFi network and provided the connection with ease. I've had bad luck with the AC-connected Internet extenders, but this unit is NOT that kind of unit. This is a Wi-Fi extender, and although I didn't need it to extend the reach of my network, my need was solved because it has an Ethernet port. It was very simple to set it up at my computer, then move it to the TV set location, plug it in and run a short Ethernet cable from the extender to the TV. Result: perfect Internet connectivity and an inexpensive fix.The result was a $30 fix that took less than 48 hours from the time I ordered the extender from . I never really considered having a service call to repair the Samsung TV, and with this $30 option it made no sense to try and repair (and pay for) the faulty WiFi unit in the TV.
