4 out of 5 eggssome limitations

Pros: Made by TP-Link
Extends wifi coverage well
Has RJ45 port
No external power supply
Great signal strength
Has built-in DHCP server
Lots of LED indicators that are helpful

Cons: Cannot disable the broadcast radio,
Cannot manually change broadcast radio channel, it is locked to your original channel you are extending.

Other Thoughts: Overall, i like this device. As a repeater, it works great. I needed to use this as a wireless access-point only, so not being able to turn off the wireless broadcast is a little annoying. I also found out that it makes my laptop BSOD if i turn my laptop on while it is in range of both my primary wireless router and this device. If i turn down the transmit power on this device, no BSOD. I have been using the latest firmware from TP-Link, and they have resolved some other minor issues, so i can't complain to much.

1 out of 5 eggsSave yourself some trouble

Pros: Newegg made it really easy to return. That's about it.

Cons: I don't even know where to start. I purchased this unit to extend my wireless signal to the back of my house where my one workstation has connectivity issues. Connecting through this repeater was actually slower! I thought maybe it was related to something else, so I plugged my laptop into the ethernet port on the bottom and ran some speed tests through it about 5 feet from my wireless access point. The best I saw was 30mbit/s through this thing, but typically speeds of about 20mbit/s. Turning on the wireless adapter in the laptop and running tests from the same exact location would max out my 130mbit/s AP. Don't even bother looking at this thing if you're looking for legitimate range extension with some sort of reasonable throughput.

Other Thoughts: I have been a computer systems engineer for the past 15 years, so I'm no stranger to networking. This unit is totally garbage.

4 out of 5 eggsIt works,

Pros: Once it is working, it seems extended my wifi range to the area that is previously weak. So it is doing its job. It works with DD-WRT router as well.

Cons: You have to disable the MAC Filter feature on your router in order to make it work. Not sure whether there is any work around for this issue. I know you could setup MAC filter on the extender, but prefer to have it on on the router itself. TPLINK, any suggestions?

Other Thoughts: Update the firmware is a breeze, everything is work except the MAC filter noted above.

4 out of 5 eggsUse an Extension Cord to Reset

Pros: The unit is compact, but still powerful. I set the unit up the second time fairly quickly using my android phone's web browser. I am still able to use the other outlet, while the nit is plugged in. I have it plugged into a single outlet surge protector, which give me a little more room to get the ethernet cable plugged in, and still have room for a big fat power cord under it.

After I updated the firmware, the control panel got even better. It has lots of features not found on routers I have used.

I love the ethernet port. I'm using it to connect my blu-ray player, as well as being a wireless extender upstairs. I've not seen any degradation of the wireless speed when the port is in use. The online content on the blu-ray plays flawlessly, and this was a lot cheaper than buying the additional wireless adapter for my blu-ray player.

Before I installed it, I was getting speeds of 10 down and 10 up upstairs, and after installing it I get 18 down and 15 up. Standing next to the router downstairs, I get 28 down and 25 up (not bad since my current plan is 25 down and 25 up, gotta love FIOS).

I have the unit setup with the same SSID as the main router, and my devices seemed to be able to switch back forth automatically, with no problem, when one is in better range.

Cons: The reset button is on the bottom of the unit, and is fairly hard to get to when plugged into a standard wall outlet. This is easily overcome by using an extension cord, that makes it very easy to get to.

I have a Linksys E2500 dual band router with push button setup, but was unable to get the unit setup by pushing buttons, but others on here have said it worked for them, so your mileage may vary. The web based setup is very quick and easy, as long as you know your wi-fi passwords (I do, but many people forget them pretty quickly after setting up their devices). I did not try using the buttons after the firmware update, so it's possible it might work with the update, because I did notice more security options after the update.

I stupidly attempted to set the unit up during an electrical storm, and had the power go out in the middle of setup. This basically bricked it. I could no longer log into the unit, and it did not seem to be broadcasting anything (that I could find using inSSIDer). Hopeful that I hadn't killed it in less than 5 minutes, I reset the unit using the reset button and previously mentioned extension cord, and was able to log back in and begin the process again.

After getting it setup, I looked up the TP Link website and found a firmware update was available. I updated it wirelessly (despite the warnings), and it updated fine/ The update lost all of my previous settings, so I had to re-set it up, but could not log in with the default admin/admin username and password. I reset the unit, and was still unable to login. Next, I tried unplugging and then resetting, and was able to log in and set it up again.

Other Thoughts: The main reason for purchasing this router is that I was having issues with my VPN connection dropping out, while upstairs where my "office" is setup. My theory is that it's due to an increase in wi-fi traffic in my neighborhood.

I went with this unit even though it was only 2.4 ghz, and 150 Mbps, because it had and ethernet port, that would allow me to get rid of a Belkin powerline adapter that has incredibly annoyingly bright blue LED's that flash all night long, even when covered up by a book case. My router is dual band with a 300 Mbps connection, but since I don't do any streaming between devices, I didn't see what difference a 300 Mbps vs a 150 Mbps connection would be, if my internet service only went up to 25 Mpbs. This was a last ditch effort to avoid upgrading to AC or trying to run cat 5 cable through my walls, and at the price, it was certainly worth a try.

While the unit does have flashing LED lights, it is nowhere near as bad as the Belkin, and is a much softer amber. I'm sure it will get on my nerves at some point, and I'l cover it up with a post it note or something, but for those who haven't tried to sleep with what looks like a spaceship landing in their bedroom for the last 6 months, it may be a bit much to try to sleep with.

I'm hopeful that I will also see improved performance in my wireless Brother MFC-J625DW printer that has been pretty slow as of late, but haven't had a chance to try it yet.

If possible, I will update this review later on how the device helped the printer and VPN situations. Once, I have had a chance to try it out.

All in all, though, given the price of the device. I'd buy it again, even if it does nothing to help the VPN situation.

2 out of 5 eggsDisapointing

Pros: Excellent design, Easy configuration (far better than any other I have used), Ethernet Port for Wired configuration.

Cons: After a month of working now requires constant rebooting.
Limited range.

Other Thoughts: This product is very well designed in as far as configuration is concerned. You can plug an Ethernet cable between it and a pc/laptop to open the configuration page and manually configure the device, or you can do the wireless method that I find problematic on most of these devices.

But after about a month the device has become flakey. Rebooting helps for a little while but is a hassle. Have done the factory reset too followed by re configuring it but it still just stops working. You can connect to it but it looses its connection with the router leaving the end user very confused. I like the design but the thing simply is not reliable.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Customer,

Thank you for checking out our Range Extender.

If you haven't already installed the latest firmware then we would suggest trying this to clean up any issues that you may have.

You can find the new Firmware released last month on our site at: http://www.tp-link.us/support/download/?model=TL-WA750RE&version=V1#tbl_j

Another suggestion we have is to use the Stati IP method instead of the Smart IP method.

This can be configured in the Network settings of the Range Extender.

If you have any questions or concerns then you can contact our 24 hour technical support, or you may reach me directly at howard.he@tp-link.com.


Best Regards!

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: Easy to install with instructions. Put it in the same area as my wireless adapter for my PC and hooked it up via LAN, it more than doubled my speeds! Very good product, would recommend.

Cons: None so far.

1 out of 5 eggsAfter less than 30 days

Pros: Was OK for a bit.

Cons: After 30 days, the unit is making a high pitch sound. Connection is very slow and cannot go higher than 3 Mbps while I'm able to connect to the router at about 45 Mbps (extender is 15 feet from router). I missed the return window by 1 day.

Other Thoughts: Quality is not good.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Customer,

We are sorry to see that you are having some physical issues with this device.

As you know the device isn't supposed to make a high pitch sound and we can definitely work with you to replace this device with a new one.

We do have a 2 year manufacture warranty with proof of purchase.

If you would like to contact our Technical support team then we can work with you to get a new device out to you.

You may even feel free to contact me directly at howard.he@tp-link.com.


Best Regards!

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic for it's intended purpose

Pros: Easy setup - Instructions actually make sense
Wifi extender and wireless adapter in one unit
Setup via wired or wireless

Cons: Not a fan of the LED color. Maybe blue or green would have been better.
Included Ethernet cable is short.

Other Thoughts: Very nice little unit. My access point is in the basement, and I was able to connect one of the computers upstairs with the wired connection, and then enhance the signal for the 2nd upstairs computer on the other side of the house. I have not had to reboot the unit at all, and it is in use probably 18 hours per day. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a wifi repeater, a wifi adapter for thier wired-only device, or even better yet, someone who is looking for both. I would have no reservations about purchasing another one, but with the wifi coverage I get now, I don't need a 2nd one.

4 out of 5 eggsRange EXPANDER

Pros: I like this device it works pretty well and has a easy setup

Would recommend this for smaller spaces and just to

extend for one room in your house.

Speeds Are good

Cons: Range is effected by being low on the wall due to outlet

placement using a short extension cord and hanging device

higher on the wall helps.

Other Thoughts: For the price you really cant go wrong with a small area

extender like this one.

4 out of 5 eggsslow, but that's typical for this type of product

Pros: Setup was very easy, I plugged it in, connected from my laptop (wirelessly), let it run it’s scan, put in the password, and I was off to the races. I did choose to have it use a different name than my main network (so I wouldn’t use it accidentally).
I like that I can also use it to connect a wired only device to the wireless network.

Cons: Speeds weren’t great, but that’s to be expected with something like this. I have a dual band AC router, with both bands set on mixed (only N devices connecting). When in my living room (with the extender), I get 25 mbps ftp transfers. On my 2.4 ghz network straight to the router, I get 80 mbps, on the 5 ghz network straight to the router, I get 120 mbps.

Other Thoughts: This is a cheap device, set up easily, and accomplishes it’s goal, but you need to understand the limitations of this kind of product. Even getting the speeds I am, I’m still happily using it to get better signal for my occasional Netflix streaming on my porch.
