Extend Your Range

300Mbps Universal Wi-Fi Range Extender – TLWA850RE

TP-LINK's TL-WA850RE is designed to conveniently extend the coverage and improve the signal strength of an existing wireless network to eliminate "dead zones." With 300Mbps wireless N speeds, Range Extender button, miniature size and wall mounting design, extending a wireless network has never been easier. What's more, its Ethernet port allows the TL-WA850RE to act as a wireless adapter to turn a wired device into a wireless one.


300Mbps Range Extender

The TL-WA850RE can vastly expand the coverage of the existing wireless network. With 300Mbps wireless 802.11n speeds, it is ideal for smooth HD video, music streaming, and online gaming.


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.


Wi-Fi Your Wired Gadgets

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.


Smart Signal Indicator Light

Five signal lights represent the current signal strength that TL-WA850RE receives from the existing router. They can help to find the right location to place the range extender and to achieve the best possible coverage and performance.

5 out of 5 eggsWorked immediately,

Pros: Worked instantly when I entered my network password

Cons: none yet

Other Thoughts: Tried and returned a Linksys and a friend spent hours with a Netgear range extender. This one worked as expected: connected Ethernet cable, typed ADMIN twice, and my network PW. Moved it to the basement where I now have 5 bars instead of 1.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent WiFi Range Extender

Pros: Supports Universal and WDS WiFi Protocols. Works with all routers
Ethernet Port, Quality Packaging, Signal LED indicator. The WiFi reception is excellent, picked up 27 different networks, 70% steady signal strength from a LONG distance from main router.
Works well with Dlink DIR-826L.

Cons: Only 1 Ethernet Port

Other Thoughts: Tried ASUS Repeaters, Rosewill WDS Router, but all failed. This one worked out of the box, solid signal strength.

5 out of 5 eggsInstall day

Pros: Plugged this puppy in and it took about two minutes to set up but it works really well. 130ft, four walls bedroom walls, one concrete wall and various metal lines. I went from two bars, 3mbps and an unreliable connection to full bars, 29mbps and no lag.

Cons: None so far. I'll post average life span when it goes out.

Other Thoughts: For the money even if this sucker doesn't last long, it is well worth the investment.

1 out of 5 eggsNot useful

Pros: None

Cons: Did not noticed any improvement in speed of internet. The speed of internet without using this and with using this is same. Return costs: $3 restocking fee + $10 return shipping . So think twice before ordering.

5 out of 5 eggs

Cons: no con's does exactly what I need

5 out of 5 eggsWorks well

Pros: It does the job of Wi-Fi extending well for the price without any complaints.

The blue lights are different, but kind of nice too.

Cons: Kind of wish the plug base stuck out a little bit in order to not crowd other nearby plugs too much (I use cheater plugs in order to accomplish this when needed when ground isn't required).

The reset button would also be nice to have pressable without a pin or other small object (but this shouldn't really be an issue after the extender is set-up; only a minor inconvenience if you happen to mess up or want to redo the initial setup or want to reset it later on).

Other Thoughts: A Linksys EA6700 couldn't push wireless far enough through my house to reach a room above the router, so I'm using this extender in another downstairs room, right underneath the room wireless needs to go to. This extender does the job of allowing wireless to that room wonderfully along with extending it outside a bit too.

4 out of 5 eggs854RE with Ethernet Jack!

Pros: Easy setup
Reliable, have not had to restart it. Have a 854RE as well and that is still going, no issues since I got it almost 6 months ago.
Ethernet Jack
On sale currently, making this one a better value than the 854RE, especially for those wanting an ethernet jack.
Small and simple.
Great for mobile devices, allowing you to not worry about your connection anywhere in your house.
Also works as a work-around for devices with ethernet jack, but can't have a wifi card installed, allowing you to bring those previously unconnectable devices online.

Cons: Flashy blue light, keep this out of your bedroom or where you sleep. I have mine in the kitchen. Allows me to reach wifi from my car.
No other cons I can think of, it meets expectations and does its job without complaint.

Other Thoughts: I previously reviewed the 854RE and the only thing I would have liked it to have was an ethernet jack.
