Just pray that you never need to call tech support

Beate L., Newegg
21 February 2013
  • Summary: I will never again buy a product from a company that outsources their support to call centers in India, China, the Philippines or other far-away places. The first rep's English was bad enough so that I had to ask her to repeat what she said every other sentence and ended up hanging up on her after 40 minutes, the second rep's English was so bad that I hung up on her after three minutes, and the third rep's English was just barely intelligible enough to finally get the...
  • Pros: Finally got it to work, and now the signal on my back porch is boosted to full bars versus one or two bars before.
  • Cons: Configuration was a nightmare. If you don't have a TP-Link router so you can set up the extender with the simple push of a button, you have to install the extender using the CD. But if you have a PC with a vertical CD-ROM drive, you cannot use the mini-CD it comes with. Whose stupid idea were mini CDs anyway?

Great Extender for the price

EOMongeni,, TigerDirect.com
9 October 2012
  • Summary: The TL-WA730RE wireless Range Extender does s good job for extended range. It is easy to setup,and I would recommend using a Cat-5 cable to link to it.It's a little slower using the wireless option.

  • Summary: As with other user who reviewed it, if you set it up properly, which is very easy to do, it is an awesome extender!! I work in a 100 year old building with thick walls.... Have strong signal in an office now where barely had any before!!

  • Summary: This unit did not have any affect on the range of my wireless network. On the plus side the return process was simple and pain free.

Didn't Work for Me

Charles, TigerDirect.com
15 March 2012
  • Summary: I found it not easy to setup with a secure network. Did little or nothing to extend the network range. Returned and purchased a Belkin for twice the price but it works like a champ.

Strong performance

tatterscre, TigerDirect.com
5 March 2012
  • Summary: I am very pleased with the performance of this range extender. My shop is about 75ft away from the router in the house and it is in a metal building. I've gone from 0 or 1 bar to 5 bars. Forget trying to set up this thing by yourself.
