A Miracle Worker 02/13/2014
This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WA750RE 150Mbps Universal WiFi Range Extender
Easy to set up. I used both a Windows 7 desktop and a Macbook Air (no ethernet port) to set this device up. I used the Web Browser method on both (I did not try the WPS button since I have a TP-LINK router and that just seemed too easy).
It comes with a disk, very clear instructions, and an ethernet cable. It just seems like so many manufacturers leave out little things like this for the sake of cost-cutting. If I'm buying a device that needs at least one (if not more) ethernet cables...why not include at least one? This is a device primarily meant to be wireless and it came with an ethernet cable. +1 for going that little bit extra.
The most MOST important thing about this device...IT ONLY TAKES UP ONE PLUG. It wouldn't work like that on a power strip, however, this device is meant to be installed somewhere away from where most of the other computer equipment is. It's still pretty bulky...but if you put it in the top outlet on the wall you can still use the bottom outlet. It may seem trivial...but hey different strokes.
The reason I call this little guy a miracle worker is because I now have wireless access in my garage. I've NEVER been able to get a wireless signal out there but now I can. It also reaches out into the street...but that's what wireless security is for, right?
I honestly can't think of any. About the only thing that I could mention is the brightness of the wheel-o-lights on the front that indicate the device's status, but that's piddly stuff.
I've kicked around getting one of these for awhile but never knew if it was worth it. I can honestly say I should have gotten one of these sooner. I ran a networking cable from a switch across my basement ceiling (had to drill holes in the joists) and out and up the wall of the garage over to a separate router just so I can have internet in the garage for my laptop I use to keep track of measurements for my woodworking projects and the maintenance schedule and part numbers for my vehicles. Sometimes it's nice to be able to look something up while I'm working and not have to run all the way inside and upset my wife by getting sawdust and/or grease all over everything I touch. Well now I can repurpose that wire for the basement for when I finish it and turn it into a media room or a home theater...or to stream children's television and learning shows when that becomes a playroom. *sigh* Maybe NewEgg will send me a bigger house to review as an EggXpert!
