Summary: I am a Network Engineer for an ISP with over 15 years of experience and I felt compelled to write a review for this device because none of the reviews included taking advantage of the features of why I bought this device.
Summary: I bought this to hopefully improve the range and bandwidth of my 10 year old Linksys WRT54G access points. And while the N protocol does appear to improve my bandwidth, that benefit is not very noticeable with normal usage (Pandora, youtube, etc). The range is actually worse than the WRT54G's.
Now I truly understand why people say they wish they could rate something zero stars!!

Summary: Unit would not work as repeater or in bridge mode. I've set up 5 or 6 of repeaters/bridges, and this is the first I couldn't get to work. TP-Link customer support - don't count on it!!! I got busy signals for about half an hour. Then . . .
Summary: I have tried everything but this thing refuses to play nice with my existing TP-Link router (TL-WR1043ND R). Everything is fine for a day or so using this as a repeater and then it will knock all my devices off wifi.
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.
Excerpt: I bought this recently, on March 7th 2014, and I'm using it as an access point to connect one device, my phone, for wireless internet. I have researched this issue with this device and updated the firmware and disabled unnecessary features, per the instructions from advice other users received from...
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.
Summary: Could never get a straight answer with tech support to install properly. They are an overseas phone number and I simply can not be awake to speak with them on the phone. NOt like they offered anyway.
Summary: Was very patient with the item shown. Went through all numerous stages of correction and update with TP technical support up to and including final firmware update. Samsung Phone and Apple laptop continued to be booted off of internet connection.
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.
