works but has limitations; not really TRUE DUAL MODE , due to 5g portion being un-stable

Pros: often disconnected to the 5G portion of router, while 2.4 is still working. Thus making the "dual-Mode" pointless!!!

Cons: Not cheap; even on special price discount !! 5g mode is not really able to cope with the "extending" feature. It often disconnects and or OFTEN LOSSES the "SSID & DNS" part of its 'extended signals' - thus making it very frustrating on that version (( so often I switch to the 2.4 version with lower thru-put speed)) and it works fine!! so not really true DUAL MODE !!!!!

Other Thoughts: Often is connected to same router - 2.4 (seperate ssid on my router) than 5G and it often disconnects with the 5g thru the "extender" . I can VERIFY THIS bu connecting to the ROUTER DIRECT to the router (while the extender is having issues) and I see the 5g was/is working. So NO DOUBT that its the extender which is causing troubles , not router!

Manufacturer Response:
Hi Michael,

Thank you for sharing your experience with our range extender. In your case we first recommend ensuring the router's 5GHz signal is sufficiently strong at the extender's location. We also highly suggest updating the extender's firmware to the latest version using the steps outlined in our FAQ here: https://www.tp-link.com/us/faq-1406.html

If you'd like assistance with any of these steps, please send an e-mail with your contact information and a link to this review to USSupportTeam@TP-Link.com and we'll gladly have a Support Agent follow up with you directly.

Thank You,
TP-Link Support
