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.

2 out of 5 eggsUN-reliability perfecton

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.

1 out of 5 eggsEuropean plug type?

Pros: none.

Cons: shows image plugging into USA standard outlet. Product that arrived has European prong plug types. Doesn't say TPLink anywhere on it and came in plain brown wrapper.

Other Thoughts: Nothing about this purchase made sense.
No TPLink logo on any documentation.
Not packaged as new.
Not correct power grid connection.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks well

Pros: It was actually kind of scary how far the signal was extended.

Cons: No issues so far.

4 out of 5 eggsAlmost worth every cent

Pros: Once before I had an issue getting a good signal in the other side of the house. It allows for a good signal now, not great unfortunately.

Cons: Would have wished a little more bang for the buck. The room was only 40 ft away, if so far.

Other Thoughts: Maybe a little more/better penetration because i get better reception in a room that is farther away than in another room that is closer but is behind an additional wall.

5 out of 5 eggsGood product at good price

Pros: Great packaging, works immediately, does what it's supposed to. Great price

Cons: Took 20 minutes to install

Other Thoughts: Had my 14 yr old hook this up. He followed the directions and in 20 minutes I had internet in the other part of my house for the first time in years. Was worth the time to set it up properly.

5 out of 5 eggsSimple and effective

Pros: Very easy to set up, very out-of-the-way solution to extend range.

Cons: Didn't need much range to extended, so unsure how it does with distance. Just had lost 2-3 bars between walls and neighbors' wireless networks, and this cuts right through everything.

5 out of 5 eggsTP Link Range Extender

Pros: Extended router range with a strong signal. Doesn't drop connection at all. Streams Netflix without issue. Reasonably priced for what it does. Super easy setup.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I bought this to extend the router range located on the 1st floor of my house to the DVD player in the basement rec room to stream Netflix. Works perfectly without issue. Very easy to setup. This never drops connection, wish I could say the same for my router.

4 out of 5 eggsTP-Link TL-WA850RE

Pros: Easy to setup.

Cons: Had issue with dropped connections as others have stated in reviews. I noticed the manufacturer response of 3/11/15 and tried assigning the range extender a different SSID. Easy to do and it worked great.

Other Thoughts: Cheap solution to spotty coverage in my home. Took care of issue with a smart tv connectivity. Highly recommend this product.
