TL-WA701ND gets the job done!

  • Summary: What you want is something that's fairly easy to setup and works and keep working afterwards. That was my experience with the TP-Link TL-WA701ND. I had tried another brand and on occasions it would lock-up, needs to be rebooted etc., but not so with this unit. After going through the simple setup, it has been working since for a few months now. I have had other TP-Link products before and for the most part, they have proven to be very reliable. Will recommend.

Awesome after install of DD-WRT

  • Summary: Out of the box this piece of equipment was buggy at best. Constant dropped signals. TP-link firmware seemed good but after reading several reviews (which i should have done before I bought it) I decided a third party firmware might be the best answer as many other people had the same problem with this device. I first flashed it with Open WRT. After that flash the radio worked inconsistently. Then I found a bin file for DD-WRT and voila.

Works for me

  • Summary: In my NYC apartment, I have the router in the bedroom but was not happy with the signal for Apple TV and iPad in the living room. I just did a test. Using TP-LINK as a Repeater, it doubles the upload and download speeds. That is great. As I was forewarned, when reading other reviews, the set up was a bit tricky. Most routers are. But I called Support and they walked me through setting up my iMac Sys Prefs so that I could get to the Admin dashboard in the Safari browser.

A very fine device

  • Summary: I purchased two of these devices, and I am very happy with them. The default IP address is 192.168.0.254 which means that most people in the USA will probably need to temporarily set their computer's static IP address to 192.168.0.nnn to configure the device (via Ethernet cable), and tell the device to use the more common 192.168.1.nnn IP block; their computer would then either go back to a static 192.168.1.nnn IP, or use a dynamic IP address assigned by the router and...

Working as expected .

  • Summary: Some have commented when using as repeater, the connection speed isn’t as good. That is because the speed is only as good as the root wifi router’s performance. If you setup the repeater near the edge of the root wifi router’s coverage area, that’s the speed that will be available in the repeater’s wifi zone.

Works as discribed

  • Summary: Like anything else, the setup can be a process, but it's the nature of the beast when dealing with routers and access points. This product worked as described, setup was not too bad. (USE the provided CD) trying to short cut will waste time. Gives you a choice of (wifi extender) (Access point) and more. range is very good. slim design and ability to be wall or ceiling mounted is a bonus.

  • Summary: This device can be used as a wireless router, wireless repeater, wireless bridge, wireless access point or a wireless client. While there is only one Ethernet port, it easily sync'ed with another wired hub to allow us to connect all of our non-wireless equipment to our wired network (provided by a cell phone wireless device).

Does what it says, says what it does,

  • Summary: This is a reasonable Access Point. If you don't know the difference between a router and an Access Point (AP) then this may not be what you are looking for. However, if you want to add additional coverage to your wireless footprint and want to bridge clients right on to you your already existing network, this does the job well.
