1 out of 5 eggsNever worked properly

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Never worked properly. Also have a TP-Link router so these items should work very nicely together. Sadly not the case. TP-Link may say they have 24/7 tech support but the woman on the other end of the line speaks such broken English it is impossible to trouble shoot. Firmware upgrade yielded no results. After sever hard resets and reconfiguring the device only so it would work for about 10 minutes to an hour, it stopped working all together. Now I can't even hard reset it to reconfigure it. DO NOT BUY THIS ITEM.

Other Thoughts: I am super disappointed as I purchased this for my beach house and since I don't live here and I always have 10,000,000 projects to work on while here, I ran past the 30 days to return it to Newegg. There is no way in HE double hockey sticks I am paying to ship this piece of garbage back to the mfg. They can't even talk to me about the problem. Very frustrated to say the least. Waste of $40 and even worse, a waste of hours of my precious time :-/

1 out of 5 eggsdoesn't really work

Pros: looks pretty, easy to set up, cheap

Cons: Didn't work -- from laptops it would connect sometimes, and be really slow other times. From phones and tablets (nexus 7, htc one, moto x), it would never authenticate. It would go "getting IP address" and "authenticating" over and over again. This happened occasionally for the laptops as well.

Other Thoughts: I was hoping to use this temporarily until I had time to snake an ethernet cable up to the 2nd floor, so I guess I have to do that now. Looked promising, but I guess you get what you pay for.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great!

Pros: Small, easy to install, one button setup, ethernet hookup, modern/sleek design

Cons: The LED indicator can be annoying if you have it in an outlet that is out in the open, but it's no different than having a router with several blinking LED indicators.

Other Thoughts: I actually purchased the WA845RE which is 300Mbps first but I wasn't impressed because I had to reset the unit all the time.

I was about to give up until I found this one. It may only be 150Mbps, but my Centurylink 20Mbps Internet does just fine on it. I purchased it because my DSL connection only has a hookup in the basement so it only gets one side of our house very good. I unboxed it, plugged it in and did the WPS push button setup and it worked instantly. I haven't had to reset it at all yet, and this is after about 3 weeks of continuous use. Now my connection reaches the other side of the house (ranch style, ~2300 sq. ft.) and out to my backyard so we can surf the web on our outdoor deck. I especially like the fact that if I need to hook up an ethernet cable to it, I can. I don't know why this function wasn't included on the 300Mbps version, but it definitely made this a better purchase.

Thus, I didn't I'd ever need one of these until now, and I definitely wasn't expecting an increase in speed (which I did not get), but the range of my wifi is now exactly how I want it to be.

1 out of 5 eggsUseless

Pros: I have shop runner so free 2 day shipping.

Cons: EVERYTHING! http://tplinkextender.net/ the site for the setup is useless. I had to search around for the direct IP address. The WPS setup didnt work at all, wasted about 30mins. Had to use the Ethernet to connect. After everything was setup, I can barely get pass 1Mbps on speedtest, when I yank out the extender, my speedtest went back up to 50Mbps. This device is useless, buyers beware. Rather have no signal in one of my rooms than have useless Wifi throughout the house.

Other Thoughts: the website shouldn't even be down.

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!
