  • Summary: Windows clients, even those with TP-LINK wireless adapters would get dropped and unable to reconnect without power cycling this awful WAP. The Androids had the best luck and the Roku and Chromecast did okay, but the TL-WN722Ns would not stay connected, nor would my Lenovo X230.

  • Summary: I am a "High Tech" guy and could not get this unit to work. The sign-in box that lets one change the IP Address and gateway appeared once and never again. I tried this on three computers. Spent 5 hours trying to get it to work.

needs constant restart

Jun Wang, Amazon

  • Summary: Don't waste your time on this item, it works fine at the beginning, then it needs constant reset, otherwise there is no connection. BTW, the item out of the box is different from the picture showing, I wouldn't have cared if it works fine, but it is not.

  • Summary: Needed a wifi repeater to extend my wireless network into a garage. The TP-Link was a total waste of time. Automatic configuration didn't work. Tried manual configuration but was unable to access the setup page.

Useless?

  • Summary: I have to admit I am completely at a loss with this device. I'm an experienced IT guy, have done many router/wifi setups, masters 802.1q and routing. But I got fooled by this device description.
