Summary: I purchased this to use as a client that can connect to my existing wifi network and give me a wired port to plug my printer into. This was very easy to do using the quick setup and I was initially very pleased.

Summary: both of repeater and bridge mode use the same channel with source signal, then I could not see any performance merit with it. I checked it with nexus 5, laptop pc and iphone. but with repeater mode, though stronger signal with the same SSID is existed, but both of nexus 5 and iphone rarely catches...
Excerpt: Must admit that I was swayed by a rave reviews by users. But, this little router is not much of a performer. Wireless signal is weak, unless you want WiFi limited to the size of a small motel room. Setup is time-consuming and requires a specific web domain.
Excerpt: It is possible I received a defective unit. I installed the TP-Link in bridge mode to extend my home WiFi which delivers download speeds up to 60 MPS. The WR700N, however, barely managed 4 MPS download with an upload speed of less than one MPS. That's wholly unsatisfactory.
Summary: I've used Apple Airport Express devices as my portable router for years. The price point on this, along with the reviews, made me think "worth a gamble on $25". I'm glad I didn't pay any more.
Summary: Got it to act as a bridge in my house. Followed min. instructions and connected my devices.. hmm.. where is my connection? speed dropped waaaay down if it even worked at all. Disconnected from TP..devices work again. Don't know yet how it works in a hotel setting.. but at home..
Summary: If you are looking for an wirelles acces point, this is not the item. The conection will drop several times a day, you will need to plug it and unplug it many times a day until you get tired of standing from your work chair. The speed will decrease a lot, like a 80%.
Summary: The router is ease to configure. I use as repeater and a bridge, but in both cases not work well. The signal level that is receiving the router is OK (about 3 bars), but i have to reset several times because stop of working. The blue led is on all the time. Sometimes work, sometimes not.
