5 out of 5 eggsFaster Than Wireless WiFi Extender

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WPA4220KIT Advanced 300Mbps Universal Wi-Fi Range Extender, Repeater, AV500 Powerline Edition, Wi-Fi Clone Button, 2 LAN Ports

Pros: I have a couple of Dual Band Wireless Extenders and decided to try out the Power Line Models. These are way faster for me. I have an old 2 story house with thick walls. I get from 25% to 50% more speed. The speeds are more consistent also. Love the Power Line! I added more Extenders to it and the whole house is covered. On the Dual Band Wireless Extenders that I have, I tested the speed on both bands and they were equally slow.

Cons: Couldn't get the WiFi Clone to work even though I have a TP-Link C7 Router. It wouldn't find each other. No big deal though. I downloaded their Utility and configured the individual Extenders with each it's own identity and password. That way I know which one I was connecting to.

Other Thoughts: Overall I love this unit. We shall see if it was last over time. Not too bad of a warranty. I had an issue with a TP-Link Wireless Extender that I had and the RMA Dept took fast care of it.

Pros: None - never got it working

Cons: Worse set of instructions ever - never did get it set up

4 out of 5 eggsEasy

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WPA4220KIT Advanced 300Mbps Universal Wi-Fi Range Extender, Repeater, AV500 Powerline Edition, Wi-Fi Clone Button, 2 LAN Ports

Pros: -Amazingly easy to setup
-Quality speeds

Cons: - iTunes. I originally bought this so that I could extend into my downstairs living room for the Apple TV, well because its an extender and technically a different network the Apple TV wont load the library while connected via Wi-Fi but will work while connected to the extender via Cat5 cable

Other Thoughts: Works amazing well other than the tiny hiccup, worth every penny for a big house!

3 out of 5 eggsPowerline extender with 3-phase

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WPA4220KIT Advanced 300Mbps Universal Wi-Fi Range Extender, Repeater, AV500 Powerline Edition, Wi-Fi Clone Button, 2 LAN Ports

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.

5 out of 5 eggsMy internet, it works! Even in the back rooms!

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WPA4220KIT Advanced 300Mbps Universal Wi-Fi Range Extender, Repeater, AV500 Powerline Edition, Wi-Fi Clone Button, 2 LAN Ports

Pros: Whoo Lordy! This thing works like a charm! A breeze to install, very simple to work with and almost immediate results.

Cons: No where near as powerful as the listed 300mps it states but still a potent force none the less.

Other Thoughts: If you have spotty coverage in your home, do yourself a favor and pick up a TP-Link, it'll save you frustration and headache.

5 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WPA4220KIT Advanced 300Mbps Universal Wi-Fi Range Extender, Repeater, AV500 Powerline Edition, Wi-Fi Clone Button, 2 LAN Ports

Pros: -Very easy to set up, almost too easy
-Great performance, both wired and wireless
-Easy to set up!

Cons: -Absurdly easy to set up! I expected AT LEAST one curse word to fly out of my mouth, but was sorely let down
-Blinking lights may be annoying in dark rooms at night

Other Thoughts: So yeah, as you can tell I had no problems setting these up. It really is as simple as plugging them in and pushing a button.

Linking another set via powerline was incredibly easy as well.

I am also getting good performance. I am able to stream Bluray quality videos via powerline to my original xbox 360 with no stutters or loss of audio.

2 out of 5 eggsBe Aware

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WPA4220KIT Advanced 300Mbps Universal Wi-Fi Range Extender, Repeater, AV500 Powerline Edition, Wi-Fi Clone Button, 2 LAN Ports

Pros: Small and compact.
WiFi
AV500 Mbps*** See "Other thoughts"
300 Meter Distance on the AV500
Easy Installation

Cons: 10/100 RJ-45 Jacks ***it's not gigabit! 100mbps is as fast as your gonna get with these ports, sorry.
Repeaters/Extenders loses 1/2 of bandwidth from router (this is always the case however, a normal thing)

Other Thoughts: *Take note that the AV500Mbps advertised is only 500Mbps through the electrical wires. The TL-PA4010 and the TL-WPA4220 ONLY have 10/100Mbps RJ-45 jacks. Theoretically, if you had different adapters or devices with 10/100/1000 gigabit ports you could reach a throughput of 500Mbps via the powerline. You will not get 300Mbps nor 500Mbps if you use the TL-PA4010 and the TL-WPA4220 together. That is to say if you are thinking like any normal human being and the context here is INTERNET! The advertisement is talking about local intranet bandwidth. So if Room A had Wireless N and Room B had Wireless N then using the TL-WPA4220 you could transfer files between the two rooms at 300Mbps. Get it? The AV500mbps technology is subject to gigabit ports which are NOT INCLUDED.

If I am mistaken, please correct me, but I have tried and researched this cause I bought into the whole 500Mbps. I have a 200Mbps connection with the ISP but unfortunately I cannot come even close to that because of the 10/100 limitation. And if I use my modems wifi 5Ghz bandwidth I still cannot get close to 200Mbps cause extenders/repeaters naturally lose the full potential of the wireless router, giving users half of whats being throughput. So my 200Mbps becomes 100Mbps at BEST! I'm getting close to 50Mbps,... pst, more like 30 when you factor in splitters and all the other little nit-pick things that slow down bandwidth.

Besides that. hardware is solid. Hope this actually helps someone. Remember that this is a "Starter Kit".

4 out of 5 eggsI’m impressed! A cheap solution to a vexing problem

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WPA4220KIT Advanced 300Mbps Universal Wi-Fi Range Extender, Repeater, AV500 Powerline Edition, Wi-Fi Clone Button, 2 LAN Ports

Pros: First some background – I have been a firmware engineer in the telecom industry. I’ve written drivers for Ethernet cards and firmware with Wi-Fi. I probably know more than most, but still would not consider myself an expert.

First the setup was really fairly easy to setup and run. If you are doing generic web browsing or basic streaming you’ll probably find this a fairly decent device. You can setup the range extender via your browser and if you’ve setup a web based router you should have no problem.

I set it up to go from my router in the basement up two floors on the other side of the house to a bedroom where the connectivity isn’t that great. I connected a laptop (wired and wireless), and a tablet and Wi-Fi phone connection. All worked fairly well given the previous problems I have had.

I was getting somewhere in the range of 30-50MBps depending on how I was connected and the test time. Under best case scenarios you can sometimes about 80-90% of the rated speed with Ethernet but in practical terms of real use what I saw was reasonable.

As 4K TVs (Quad HD) are coming into existence this holiday season, it is worth noting that Netflix is now streaming at Ultra HD and the connections will require about 15Mbps, so this device could realistically handle one or more connections (good!).

I like the two Ethernet plugs on the Wi-Fi as opposed to one which often isn’t enough and forces you to buy a switch and eat another valuable wall socket to plug it in with.

Cons: The cons listed really didn't affect my rating very much because the price of this device if fairly low. Product designers are always vexed by the cost of perfect vs. good enough. In my opinion they struck a nice balance.

First it’s only 100 Mbps which is still okay for most applications but if you are using it between you and your online storage you will find its really not all that great. If you have multiple streaming devices on the other side you may find it’s also not that great.

I do video editing and download lots of very large software bundles and logs, I would not consider using it on the other side unless speed wasn't really much of a consideration. My guess is that I am probably not an average user in most cases however.

It’s also stated that line suppressors may cause problems – this may be an issue for some though I use a whole house suppressor at my fuse box (the only way to go). But if you are in an apartment or can’t do something like this, you may find this to be an issue.

Other Thoughts: I think it’s important to note that even though the throughput is rated at 300Mbps that you will see at maximum 100Mpbs speeds as you are connected via a 10/100 port when wired. This should mean that you can connect several clients running at full speed before you start to take a performance hit. As I had no way to test this, I don’t know how it would work – but theoretically it should be okay.

I believe this device is going to end up connected to large flat panel TV on the wall and a Roku and small dedicated PC to use on the screen. I've often had dropouts that I believe are related to my (existing) Wi-Fi connection and believe this device may make it more stable.

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent for Extending Network with Decent speed

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WPA4220KIT Advanced 300Mbps Universal Wi-Fi Range Extender, Repeater, AV500 Powerline Edition, Wi-Fi Clone Button, 2 LAN Ports

Pros: Easily extends wireless or wired network throughout the house. I used the WiFi clone to set up the extender and it works perfectly. I put one extender in the back of the house where I have built a workshop and needed to extend my wireless signal. I get full 5 bars reception in my shop compared to the 2 bars I was getting just using my router. The other is in my daughter's bedroom where, for some reason, she has a dead spot in the corner where her computer is located...now she has 5 bars also, but can plug in using the network card if she decides to. Overall, it works well and hasn't dropped signal wirelessly and has had no issues running hardwired, either.

Cons: The only problem I have, is the speed is not as fast as connected directly to the router. A ran Speedtest.net on my main computer connected directly to the router and get 60Mbps, and with the extender, the best I could get wireless or hardwired was 32Mbps. I move the laptop and connect it directly to the router and it also downloads at 60Mbps, so it's something to do with the extender. Although, 32Mbps is not too shabby.

Other Thoughts: Downloading through the network from another computer, the best speed I could get was 5.42MB/sec. It does stream HD video with no lag, so it's a pretty low price to extend your network wirelessly, through your house's electrical system, or a combination of both.
