* The terms “AV600” and “300Mbps” are derived from applicable specifications and refer to the theoretical maximum physical-layer data transfer rate. Those terms are used on this product solely to indicate its compatibility with other “AV600” or “300Mbps” powerline devices. Actual data speeds vary and may be limited by the product’s Ethernet port and other network conditions such as data traffic, electrical noise, and wiring issues. For better performance, powerline devices should be deployed on the same electrical circuit and rated for the same HomePlug standard. A minimum of two powerline devices are required to establish a powerline connection. If you are uncertain about your network conditions, you should consult an IT professional to assist in selecting a networking product.

* Maximum wireless transmission rates are the physical rates derived from IEEE Standard 802.11 specifications. Range and coverage specifications along with the number of connected devices were defined according to test results under normal usage conditions. Actual wireless transmission rate, wireless coverage, and number of connected devices are not guaranteed, and will vary as a result of 1) environmental factors, including building materials, physical objects and obstacles, 2) network conditions, including local interference, volume and density of traffic, product location, network complexity, and network overhead and 3) client limitations, including rated performance, location, connection quality, and client condition.

Very difficult to troubleshoot 1/12/2018 12:16:08 PM

Pros: Great price. I have 2 switches and a cable modem from TP-Link and all have worked flawlessly - great value.
Newegg customer service - they took this thing back and provided stellar customer service as always.

Cons: If you want to add a separate wi-fi network to your existing network - this will work great. If you want to integrate these with your existing wi-fi network (extend it) - good luck. They have attempted to make this idiot-proof by making everything 'magically' just happen with a button push. So if you want to clone your existing wi-fi settings (extend your network) and that fails - there is no UI, no logs - no way to troubleshoot the problem. You can download the 'app' from TP-Link - which allows you to manually clone your own wi-fi settings - however if that does not work, again there is no log file, no management UI, nothing to help you figure out why it did not work.
-Lack of administrative abilities
-App lacks any real administrative abilities
-Troubleshooting 'help' consists of videos and instructions that are all identical - i.e. 'just push this button and wait for the magic'
-Separate wi-fi option results in replacement of existing wi-fi settings - documentation does not warn you of this - anywhere.

Overall Review: I easily created a distinct wireless network with these devices and had strong coverage. That is not what I wanted, however, and that new wireless network blew away and replaced my existing network -which resulted in having to factory reset my router and rebuild my network. The documentation failed to mention this - so be careful.

Hi Jonathan,

Thank you for sharing your experience with our TL-WPA4220 Powerline Wi-Fi Extender Kit. We're sorry to hear you decided to return the product; we would've appreciated the opportunity to follow up with you and address your concerns. In your case, we would've recommended using the TL-WPA4220 KIT Utility - not the tpPLC Utility - to access the product's management interface and manually clone your router's SSID. The utility can be downloaded from our official website below.

Windows - http://static.tp-link.com/resources/software/TL-WPA4220KIT_V1_Utility.zip
Mac - http://static.tp-link.com/res/down/soft/TL-WPA4220_KIT_V1_MAC_Powerline_Scan_Utility.zip

For future reference, our Support Team is always happy to listen, and answer any questions you might have about our products. Please feel free to e-mail USSupportTeam@TP-Link.com and we'll gladly have a Support Agent follow up with you directly.

Apparently only works at extremely short distances 2/27/2017 11:19:41 AM

Pros: - Very easy to set-up
- The utility you can download to check connection speed/status is great

Cons: - Can't be used to span long distances. The specs say 300 meters, which is reasonable, but I have mine only 75 feet apart and was told by customer support this is "too far" and that I should try plugging them in in the same room.
- Because of this distance, I only get around 20Mbps, which is very slow.

Overall Review: Was hoping this would solve the issue of my WiFi not reaching one corner of my house. I'll likely end up returning this and just get a wifi repeater instead

Hello Edward,

Thank you for your review and feedback.

Please bear in mind that the theoretical maximum channel data transfer rate of Powerline Adapters is derived from HomePlug AV specifications. Actual data transfer rate will vary from network environment variables including: distance between adapters, network traffic, noise on electrical wires, building material and construction, quality of electrical installation and other adverse conditions.

We also recommend making sure that both adapters are plugged directly into wall outlets; no surge protectors or power strips, as these will disrupt the signal.

Our Support Team is always available and happy to help. Please feel free to contact us anytime using the information below, and we'll gladly follow up with you.

We thank you again for your feedback and hope you will continue to consider TP-Link for your future network needs.

Best Regards,

Great for home networking 6/23/2016 12:40:22 PM

Cons: No complaints

Poor instructions, conflicts with router IP and knocks out the original LAN 1/14/2016 9:40:38 AM

Pros: They are small. I did get a decent signal strength.

Cons: No CD was in the package. Poor, TINY, instruction book that you can barely see. No way to access their online settings for the device was ever listed anywhere in the instructions. The numbers on the devices are so small you better have really good eyesight. In using a wifi analyser app on my phone I can see 2 distinct signals with the same name and password. No devices are able to connect to either one. There are no instructions on how to resolve this even though it seems to be the common problem with this device.

Overall Review: Unless their support can fix this for me I'm not recommending this to anyone. Too difficult to resolve router conflicts and extremely cryptic on how to get to the web interface. I plug directly into the device and still not able to get a web site to configure it.

Manufacturer Response:
Hello Customer,

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

The kit should come with a CD containing the utility software, and you may download the utility from our site if you are missing the CD.

You may find it at: http://www.tp-link.us/download/TL-WPA4220KIT.html#Utility

One issue that you may see is that your Router and the TP-Link may have the same IP address (192.168.1.1). This may cause some issues to connect, but may be easily changed.

If you are still having issues and would like further assistance then please feel free to contact our support team directly.

Best Regards!

Had some issues 10/5/2015 10:31:25 AM

Pros: works for a while.

Cons: works for a while.

Overall Review: It appears, but I have not proved, that the wireless access point stops working after some period of time. It *appears* what has happened is that the wireless connection went down, my Android phone will merrily switch to the main router, but my daughter's iPhone 6, would not, and instead switched to cellular data, and racked me up some GB of data.

For the record, I mirrored the SSID and password of the main router, but put this device on another channel.

I have since gave it another SSID and pw, and still had issues, so I just unplugged it, save this problem for winter when i am looking for something to do.

What ever happened, unplugging both units and plugging them in clears the issue.

My router is Asus RTN16 (or something like that), running DD-WRT.

No issues noted with a Rosewill adapter, Android phones, or Chromebooks, just the iPhone. But they might have just switched to the main router. Again, I would have to play around, and it would also require me to take a risk that the iPhone would start hitting the cellular connection (when I least expect it), and it would require my daughter to keep track of it. In other words, probably never.

I was detecting the wireless connection going down with the Android app "Wifi Analyzer" by farproc. I have read that an app on the iTunes store has the same name but is not from the same author.

Consider the above *unproven*, it might have been what happened, then again the truth might be something else.

Better than expected 10/1/2015 3:56:19 PM

Pros: Fast installation; achieves same speed on any circuit

Cons: "blinking light" status not explained well in instructions

Overall Review: Though all I cared about was that this would extend to the other end of the hall on the same circuit, it works equally well anywhere in this two-story house, including an addition. There must be some wiring gotcha that some others are encountering.

Works excellent 9/26/2015 10:43:04 AM

Pros: Simple installation, works as advertised. Does NOT have to be on the same circuit or even panel. Wi-FI signal excellent, speed throughput good, stable reliable wi-fi signal.

Cons: Cloning function is iffy at best, but easily circumvented by simply logging to the device and setting the network parameters manually.

Overall Review: I've set up a couple of these for friends to get Wi-Fi in their metal clad barns several hundred yards away from their main home. I just did the same with my new barn. My barn is 250' away and I get 3ms latency to the device via the powerline out there. Wi-Fi signal is outstanding in the barn, speed tests of transferring files from my local network server indicate around 50mbps of actual file transfer speed. Reliable solid signal, I've never had to reset or re-setup these.
Not sure why some people say has to be on the same circuit, mines setup through a circuit in the main panel to a circuit in a subpanel, no problems whatsoever. It's possible they won't work or work degraded through AFCI breakers (AFCI is required for bedroom circuits of homes built after around 2003), I have none of those to test, they also do not work via surge suppression or voltage regulating equipment like most powerstrips and UPS's. They do work just fine through GFCI protected circuits. They won't work through street/pole/power company transformers. (between neighboring homes) (Actually they will if you have a neutral leg pulled from the transformer which most newer homes would , but it's severely degraded and mostly unusable)
This is the third one of these I've setup in different homes and I've not had a single issue with any of them.

Difficult Setup, Problematic WiFi 9/13/2015 12:11:07 PM

Pros: The connection over power works fine and is fast enough for me.
The price was reasonable for the kit.

Cons: Setup was much more difficult than anticipated.
Pairing the devices wasn't bad, but I had to reset the device multiple times to get an IP.
The internet-based software was difficult to access at times.
Wifi is not easy. I primarily used (the wifi) it as a standalone access point, and was eventually able to get most of my devices connected (signal strength was reasonable), but couldn't get my phones and a few laptops to connect. We have all Moto G devices from various generations, but couldn't get any of them to establish a connection. Even with all security disabled, no luck. It sits at 'acquiring IP' -- maybe this is a problem with the phones, but it is the only trouble I've had with wifi and I have accessed tons of different ones.

Overall Review: If I wasn't willing to restart tons of times, start the setup process over from scratch, and didn't have a spare wireless access point I didn't mind using, I'd have sent this back. I was *that* close. Since I was able to work around the issues, I didn't want to go back to only weak wifi signal for my primary PC during the exchange time (since the wired connection over power worked relatively easily).

I'll try as a wifi clone/extender one more time (since that seems to be the focus with this device) and update this if that works and fixes my various device connection issues.

Maybe I got a lemon (good reviews, otherwise), but if not...I wouldn't recommend this. Go D-Link even if it is $20 more.
