TP-LINK TL-WPA4220 N300 AV500 Wi-Fi Powerline Add-On Extender

4 out of 5 eggs Decent Add-On for exisiting Powerline setup! 11/20/2014

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WPA4220 N300 AV500 Wi-Fi Powerline Add-On Extender

Pros: This is not a stand-alone device, you must already have a starter kit or at the very least one TP-Link power line adapter for it to be able to work!

I tested this WiFi range extender kit add-on with an existing Power-line adapter Starter Kit #TL-PA6010 Kit and it worked fine once I had it setup and configured properly. After two weeks it has performed great with no problems. It does overlap with the signal from my router in the office, so it is hard to say if it has dropped the signal, but does not appear to have done so yet based on the WiFi signals at the other end of the house where I am using it.

It works exactly as it is supposed to, although setup was a little more involved than the simple instructions included in the box, which to me seemed to be a little incomplete.

I found that it was much easier to setup the device by downloading the management utility from their website, and manually configuring it with the utility through a hard-wire on my network. I did not bother with the WPS option.

A nice extra feature is this also has two RJ-45 jacks on the bottom of the unit for connecting a couple of wired devices such as a computer or internet capable TV set.

While I did not get the advertised speeds with the unit, this could be because of my electrical wiring within the house. Every network is different and since this is dependent on your home wiring, this will affect speeds in relation to the type of wiring you have in your house, and where the unit is located.

Cons: No software included in the box, had to download the management utility from their website. They did provide a small card with the default wireless settings, and included an address to where you could find the download for their utility for your device.

Other Thoughts: As stated per the instructions………..”You need an additional power line adapter or existing power line network to successfully use this device and extend an internet connection. “

5 out of 5 eggs Excellent Media Storage! 10/28/2014

This review is from: PHILIPS 4.7GB 16X DVD-R Logo 100 Packs Spindle Disc with Handle Model DM4S6H00F/17

Pros: Burned through these in no time backing up data and did not make any frisbee's!

It's always a good idea to back up important data to disc's every now and then. Long term storage on hard drives is not always the best idea.

It is worth the time to burn your pictures and videos every to disc every few months..

I have seen too many people keep everything on their phones, laptops and tablets, only to lose everything when a failure or damage occurred!

If you are having trouble, try burning at a slower speed.

DVD burners do not last forever and since they have become so inexpensive these days it is a good idea to replace yours every few years if you use them frequently and do a lot of burning!

Cons: None at all!

5 out of 5 eggs Great Media Storage! 10/28/2014

This review is from: SONY 4.7GB 16X DVD-R 100 Packs Spindle Spindle Disc Model 100dmr47sp

Pros: Sony discs have always worked flawlessly for me!

Cost effective way to backup your data just to be safe as hard drives can always fail when you use them for long term storage.

It is worth the trouble to burn all your pictures and videos every now and then to disc's!

I have known too many people that keep pictures and videos on their phones, laptops, and tablets, and when a failure or damage occurs they lose everything!

Cons: None at all!
