WORKS GREAT AND SOME COMMON PROBLEMS ARE EXPLAINED HERE
28 January 2015
Summary: I was having some trouble with a wireless D-link security camera in my detached garage constantly dropping offline as my router is a good distance away. I configured the TL-WA801N in the wireless repeater mode and placed it in a storage shed which is located halfway between my house and garage -- instantly my security camera came back online and has stayed that way with a strong connection.
Great cheap wired access point for my Network printer.

Summary: I needed to put a wired connection in a room without a wire for my network printer. Setup using the "client" mode. Took about 10 min to get setup. Works great. Once in client mode, you can't go back into it to check options like you did to set it up since the unit is now a client with the wire being an output. They describe the procedure to get back into it in the setup guide. That works great as well.
Seems good so far, with a minor Chromecast issue at first

Summary: I purchased the TP-Link TL-WA801ND to replace my aging Linksys WAP54G access point, which still works fine but since we only stream TV shows and movies now, it seems to be showing its age. The setup for the WA801ND was fairly simple. You will need to change your computer’s IP address to match its network settings initially unless you are already using the 192.168.0 network.
Great access point for the price. I was pleasantly surprised.

Summary: I bought this so my daughter can do a science experiment with parabola to show if it increases signal strength. This little thing did so good by itself I am putting it out in my garage to extend my network out there. Its great, I can't complain and I was pleasantly surprised at how good the quality was. The setup was easy, not sure why other people had problems.
Easy to Configure, Extremely Responsive and Very Affordable

Summary: I was looking for a device to connect my Ethernet only device to my wifi access point. After the great reviews and very affordable price, I decided to jump on this. And I couldn’t be happier. Honestly, I was never a TP-LINK fan. I had tried a different device prior to this one and this one’s interface is so much more responsive.
Perfect wireless client for a 1 device ethernet connection with already set-up wireless AP.

Summary: Super easy to set up! I am using it as a wired client for our already set up wireless router. All I needed to do was select "client" for the setup type, find our original router's MAC address which was easy with the look-up feature in the setup. Just type in your wireless AP name and click the button just below that (may be labled Look Up or Find) and it shows the wireless networks that this device sees (in my area there are many, more than my Mac can see actually) and I...
TP-LINK TL-WA701ND Wireless N150 Access Point, 2.4Ghz 150Mbps
3 August 2014
Summary: Works very well for the past week. I'll try to remember to update this review after a few months. I'm using it as a client for connecting multiple wired devices via an attached Ethernet hub. Had much difficulty setting it up, mostly because I didn't know the differences between access points, clients and bridges. The GUI's descriptions of the 4 modes are well written, but the Client Mode implies that only 1 wired device can be hooked up. A switch may be used.
