Drops Connection Often

KevinV_DE, Staples
24 March 2014
  • 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 the manufacturer, and the issue still persists. If you need a constant connection, e.g. for streaming video or gaming, I would not recommend this product.

  • 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.

Garbage

66eleanor, Amazon
3 February 2014
  • 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. No boot off issues when extender not on but signal weak. Apparently was too patient as when I got up this morning to return item Amazon says no... (Jan 31 final date). Um, thanks AMAZON you get an epic FAIL one star too.

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. Never got it to connect to the internet and to make matters worse it screwed up the network settings of my laptop computer so it would no longer connect to the wireless router. It took 2 hours to figure out how to fix that. This gets returned.

DOA

scott hunter, Amazon
3 August 2011
  • Summary: Opened the box, product looked OK, thought it should be a simple process of connecting this AP to the router, and to login using the IP address from the directions ... HA! Double HA!! Could never connect to the thing. After several tries, I gave up. I figured that it If it won't work now, it will never work at all, and even if it did, who would want to try 20 login attempts before you can actually login?
