Just pray that you never need to call tech support

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?
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 device is a really good product because of the price. Really easy to set up you just follow the instruction that come with CD and that's it your done! really good price you cannot beat it! the only thing that i was not satisfied about is that in the box it says its a N extender but its really not it has some features of an N extender but its not.
Summary: I took it out of the box, and once I actually followed the instructions, it works great! I synced it well over a week ago, and it has been working great ever since. I highly recommend this product.
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.
