Pros: Small, easy to install, does not need power cable
Cons: But it is NOT easy to use. Signal can be strong but it takes so much time to make connections to my phone and a lot of times the internet just does not work, which makes this device practically useless.
Manufacturer Response:We apologize that you are having trouble using the EX2700. Our experts will be happy to help you and answer any questions. Simply email them at firstname.lastname@example.org with the serial number of your unit and your questions.

Pros: Short bursts of signal boost. You can count losing signal and being forced to move/tilt/turn/flip your device to find it again. You can count on numerous issues causing signal stoppage by the duplex changing.
Cons: Low price attraction. You'll spend your savings on headache treatment. Supporting others in the same household. I hear, "Is the internet down?" at least 2-3 times each night.
Other Thoughts: Newegg should seriously consider/reconsider the sale of this product. I suggest fully vetting devices prior to adding items to their product line. If you don't mind tinkering, and are patient, then you might be able to manage using this device. But if not, or you can't recognize quickly what is going on, or watching your refresh bar stop 20% into a refresh for minutes, then this device is not recommended.

Pros: Works as advertised. Very simple setup, or more detailed if you like but not necessary. I used the web page sign-in method and it was stupid easy and then you can unplug it and place it to best advantage.
In my case, my home office is buried in a corner of the house behind multiple walls. I found the best location for the repeater was in a nearby bathroom. Now the signal strength is mostly equal throughout the house. 5Ghz appears to be extended equally as well as 2.4Ghz.
Reception range into the repeater is excellent. That bathroom was always a problem for my mobile phone, but the TP-Link takes it all in stride and re-transmits perfectly. 5 bar service now in my office with minimal if any additional lag from my subjective standpoint (certainly so much better than the "1 bar" of service I had before).
Cons: The re-transmit range does not appear to be as wide as my main router the Asus RT-N66U, probably caused by the fact that the repeater has smaller antennae. I also cannot speak to how effective more than one in series over a larger area will be.
Other Thoughts: This is best used to fill holes, as opposed to doubling your wi-fi range.
If finding the "center" of your house for your main router compromises the reception at an outlying corner, as in my case, this fits the bill perfectly.

Pros: Always works. Had it for more than a year.. I purchased 2 of them. Bedroom and living room. Feeds off of the main buffalo AP.
Cons: None.. Been over year and still kicks!
Other Thoughts: Love the fact that its independent. Simply select any AP you want and your done. I have my chrome cast connected full time without any issues. Streams 1080p from Netflix without a problem. Cant beat it.
The is a Joeteck approved product!

Cons: I too eventually got the disconnect error with this, usually after the computer was off overnight with no network activity. It required rebooting the unit. Overall it was too much of a hassle to do every day and I now use a long ethernet cable.
We are sorry for the inconvenience you have experienced with the Linksys WUMC710. If you still have the device with you, we would be glad to assist you improve your network. If the bridge frequently gets disconnected from the main access point/router, place the bridge within the AP/router's line of sight and minimize physical obstruction. Changing the AP/router's wireless channel could be of help too.
We would appreciate it if you could email us the details of your network setup so we can assist you properly. You can reach us at LinksysCares@linksys.com anytime. We hope to hear from you.

Pros: The extender works if and only if the sender and receiver are on the same hot line.
Cons: If your home or business is on so-called single phase, you have 2 hots (a red and black wire) and one neutral (the white wire). If this device sent the signal over the neutral line, it would work everywhere. But it doesn't and can't since neutral is, essentially, ground. If you have 3-phase, you have 3 hot lines, one neutral. Both outlets must be on the same hot line for them to pair. If you have single phase, that's a 50 percent chance. If you have 3-phase, that's a 33 1/3 percent chance that the units will pair. If they don't pair, they don't work.
