Summary: Device seems to work fine, but does NOT come with brackets to mount to a wall. Only zip ties to mount to a pole. This is a big design miss. Also, the signal strength indicators are on the back, so you can't see them if you do figure out a way to wall mount the device.
Summary: Simply wanted to use this as a high powered repeater. I have setup multiple repeaters and it is simple to do. I spent 5 minutes setting this guy up as a repeater but the signal was non existent. I set this up about 100ft away from my router in a sun-room just to test before I mounted it outside. It showed about a 70% signal on the repeaters GUI. I first scanned the signal using Wifi Analyzer on my Android phone and held it next to my router. 100% signal. Great.
Summary: I am using to go between my apartment building and another building 900 meters away that does not have any internet access. The TP-Link was easy to configure and has throughput nearly the same as my local wifi. Going to order another set to a second building 1.1 km away.
Summary: Ok so check it out. I just finished setting this up today. I live in the middle of Manhattan in New York City and I installed this on my roof terrace, probably one of the most saturated wifi environments around, which is why I went with 5ghz...I strongly recommend for urban settings where competing wifi networks are problematic. The unit works GREAT. I have no major complaints, but there's some stuff you need to know: 1. As far as outdoor access points go..
