slow boot, bad performance, bad range. constantly need to reboot

Pros: - when it works, it works fine for a little while

Cons: - the most annoying thing is constantly need to reboot this unit, otherwise for some reason computers can see the wifi network but fail to connect. After reboot, everything connects successfully.
- very slow boot up.
- software interface is EXTREMELY slow and laggy, most of the time it will just time out and fails to load.
- range is ok but not good.

All of the above are observed with a tp-link router, this extender, and tp-link wifi adapter. You'd think being all from the same company everything would work flawlessly, but nope.

Other Thoughts: do not recommend this product even if it's on sale.

Easy Set-up

Pros: Easy set-up through WPS button. compact. Easy to advance set-up through the web interface

Cons: I thought it was a dual band 2.5 and 5 gig so was disappointed not having the 5 but after reviewing the specs online I do not see anything suggesting it had 5gig. did not come with a cd or cable, but I didn't need them anyway.

Other Thoughts: I would still recommend this product, it is economical and easy to set-up. If you use your existing WIFI network name you don't even need to remember a new password.

Just Works so I'll try to use simple English to explain

Pros: I got this after our house was wiped out in the Jan 2017 Tornado's and we were moved by the Insurance Co. to an Apartment in Town. The Apt. being in a separate building 80 feet laterally from the location of the Router in a room in another building. Signal strength on our laptops is 5 bars. Off a single TP WA850RE, we run consecutively, 2 Laptops running Google Chromecast's playing from Youtube, Hulu and A n simultaneously, (We don't have Cable or Antenna, TV), a Tablet, and wireless printers. At any one time, 4 devices are using the RE. It rarely causes problems

Cons: Where we do have a problem and I'm still undecided where it lies is when the Main Router (AT&T 300mbs Router supplied) next door loses the AT&T DSL signal. If it doesn't come back promptly the RE resets itself requiring a march next door, usually in the dark and a manual reconnect which at 2.00am is a pain. It would be better if it automatically found the router on it's own and reset itself. Can't have everything tho. too much to ask

Other Thoughts: Well worth the $19.95. It works flawlessly for what it is. Even with 2 laptops downloading and simultaneously casting to TV's in different rooms it rarely buffers. Insurance rented TV's for us but won't commit to cable and time period unsure so sure I'll be glad to get into a new hard wired house but in the meantime with my jury rigged setup it does the job, I mean even my laptop screens have water damage and are barely readable so it's a difficult reading writing and reading this. All I can say is without the TP Link Extender we would of been climbing the walls or killing each other

Did not function for intended purpose

Pros: Small/unobtrusive
Looks decent

Cons: Useless for intended purpose ie extending range of home WiFi
Unable to setup via Ethernet

Other Thoughts: I purchased this for a large 4k TV in an entertainment center 15'-16' from the modem/router. The WiFi signal is pretty much blocked to the TV so it makes streaming 4k a task. I placed this in direct line of sight 15' from the modem/router and 28" clear line of sight from the TV.
The performance was worse than the TV on its own.
I performed all obvious troubleshooting tasks then moved on to more advanced steps. After no improvement I went to TP-Link support which didn't offer as much assistance as I had already done on my own.
With 75-85Mbps cable speed on Ethernet, clocking 100Mbps+ on any other WiFi device on the network 24/7 (I don't know why my WiFi data is so much faster either), I was getting 3-5Mbps speeds using this device...In addition the range extender was only receiving 50%-60% of the WiFi signal from the modem/router, again, at 15' away with a clear path of travel.
I tried using the Ethernet to device option and it provided the same speeds. To me that means the device is only capable of handling very small amounts of data.
The problems are not from the modem/router. I have multiple other WiFi devices many feet further away and through walls than where this device is and there are no problems with signal strength or speeds.
