Quick Setup, Easy Deployment

Setup is facilitated by the built-in range extender button, quickly pairing the TL-WA850RE with your main router after simultaneously pressing its WPS button. If your router does not have a WPS button, you can access the quick setup mode through the web browser-based user interface. Login credentials are retained internally after setup, allowing you to relocate as needed to generate ideal coverage.

After the range extender is set up, users can connect wired devices such as Blu-ray® players, gaming consoles, DVRs, and Internet TVs to the extender via the Ethernet port. As a result, those devices are added to the whole wireless network and can access the Internet.

5 out of 5 eggsEasy Setup - Working Great So Far

Pros: Setup was very easy. I connected to the device through my laptop to configure. Added my WEP key and it worked without any issues. Good single in whole house.

Cons: None yet

Other Thoughts: My house is a single story, 2800 sq ft. My FIOS Router (Westell 9100) is located at front of house, the wifi range extender is located in the middle and is provided wifi to the back bedrooms with no problem. Good signal.

5 out of 5 eggsWicked EZ Setup

Pros: The TP-Link TL-WA850RE greatly improved WiFi in our large downstairs. My teenage daughter set this up in a few minutes using only the touch of the WPS button on our existing Wi-Fi router and one button on the TP-Link Wi Fi Booster. I am just amazed at how EZ the setup was and how well it works for the price. I was thinking of buying a new and much more expensive router that would have taken hours of setup. This was such an easy upgrade.

Cons: I have not Cons at this time.

Other Thoughts: This really works, and it's easy to install. Save time and money to get more coverage, over other options.

5 out of 5 eggsVery simple

Pros: The setup was super easy. Instructions were easy to follow and I had i working in less than 20 minutes. I am now able to stream Netflix in my bed room which is something i was unable to do before. For $30, its hard to beat this product.

Cons: The only downside i have found so far is that i have to manually switch between the extender and my router on my phone (first world problem). Its not a big deal to me since my router is in the front room of my house and the extender is in the living room, but someone else might have a problem with that.

Other Thoughts: I have been using this product for less than a day, but it seems like a solid product and a great buy!

4 out of 5 eggsWorks great!

Pros: Makes your connection much better.
Comes with a cat5e plug so you can LAN into this.

Cons: Must be reconfigured from time to time. I explain this below. Worth docking one egg.
Doesn't configure with an IP, reconfigures at a web address that's not too easy to remember (not worth docking an egg, because it is a personal preference really)

Other Thoughts: If you have a desktop and don't want to buy a wireless card but what to connect to a wireless router on the otherside of a building, just get this. You can ethernet to the extender and connect wirelessly that way. Much faster than using a PCI-e wireless card.

However, I went to a LAN party (didn't take the extender with me, just wired into my friends router) and came back to my house and needed to reconfigure the extender.

1 out of 5 eggsNot as advertised

Pros: Easy to setup.
Enables wired connections to be wireless.

Cons: Randomly drops connection.
Does NOT boost the signal.
Much slower than using my router's AP.

3 out of 5 eggsworks

Pros: Easy set up, WPS worked without issue. Looks decent enough, like an oversized air freshener.

Cons: Same high pitched ringing others have reported. Tried different outlet with no difference.

Other Thoughts: High pitch ringing is definitely data related. If I turn off the wireless adapter on my pc the ringing lessens. If I then unplug the ethernet it stops altogether. Though it's more of a "dinging" than a ringing, basically you can hear network traffic chirping away on it.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great

Pros: Works great.

Cons: more detailed instructions

Other Thoughts: I realized it works better to use the same SSID. most devices will auto switch to the stronger AP.

1 out of 5 eggsAs long as the power stays on

Pros: Works great as long as the power stays on.

Cons: Loses all settings and has to be reconfigured if it loses power. Either by an outage or by unplugging it. Instructions say settings save, unfortunately this was not the case for this one.
