Summary: I bought this for the sole purpose of extending my Wi-Fi signal to dead zones in my house. It works! However, do not attempt to read the Quick Setup guide. The mini-CD is even worse. If you want to quickly setup the TL-WR700N in REPEATER MODE, just simply visit their website: [...] I got it to work in just 10 minutes after reading that article from their website. I wonder why they can't just put those instructions in the box.
Summary: Works incredibly easily and well, with surprisingly good range. Works plug and play as an Access Point, and it was quite simple to change the SSID and password. Very simple to find instructions in english by searching for "TL-WR700N setting", and selecting the wordpress link.

How to Setup TP-LINK as a REPEATER. Great little device!
2 September 2014
Summary: This little device worked perfectly for my needs in repeater mode to extend an existing WiFi signal from my wireless router to the second floor where I had very low or no signal. Setup was easy and simple, and was up and running in 5 minutes using the provided instruction booklet with a minor change I'll explain later.
Summary: I show more of the product in the video, but the TP-Link TL-WR700N is the perfect travel companion for anyone. The the power plug built into the unit and one single ethernet port on the side, there is no confusion on how it works. A status indicator on the side tells you that it is operational and connected. Plus the included ethernet cord allows you to get started right away.
Summary: My ISPs support line cant help me with problems that I have with using it with their cable modem ARRIS, but after I set it to router mode and switch it to clone MAC address of my PC, all working well now.
Summary: This does everything I needed it to do. All I wanted was something small that would generate a wireless signal for a cheap price. I don't know if the MBPS are high or low, I don't care as long as there is a strong signal in my house. And it covers everywhere, including outside on my deck! Set up was so easy it was sad. Just plug it in and sign on to the 'setup site' and just set it to what you want it to do and make your ID and password.
Summary: Worked great as a repeater for everything except for my WeMo devices. They couldn't be found on the network until after refreshing the app a few times, and that was very annoying. I returned this because of that. Set up was very simple & it comes with excellent instructions.
Summary: I took this on a recent trip to Japan, where every hotel we stayed in had both wireless and ethernet connections. I just plugged this in and all my devices were good to go. Friends who were depending on the hotel wi-fi had varying degrees of success, so even if there is wi-fi available I would use this. I plan on taking this on all my trips from now on. One thing to note - it comes with a very short ethernet cable.
Summary: I bought this device to act as a wifi repeater. I live in a 3BR apartment in a 90-year old house... just brick, sheetrock, stone and wood here... and I don't have the best wifi coverage. One of the modes of this device is to be a repeater. The included instructions are not the best, and the full manual online is marginally better, but I was easily able to configure the device as such.
