Summary: I installed the TP Link Range Extender to boost wifi signal between my home and guest house. It picked up the router signal and my computer connected to it on the first try. I would recommend.
Summary: Connection and setup was easy, but once installed kept dropping connection between my modem/router (Cisco dpc3825 from Shaw) every half hour. Unfortunately, I spent a long time trying to fix it to no avail, so long in fact, it went beyond my return date. Got a Cisco Linksys RE1000 instead and it works like a charm.
Summary: I bought 5 different wireless extenders from the big names and none of them was able to do what I wanted. This extender is amazing. it uses the same network name so you will connect to whatever is closer, the router or the extender (other extenders create a new name for your extended network which gets annoying). I have had this for about 2 months now and have only had it go down once for about 5 minutes and then it re-connected and worked fine.
Summary: For those of you who do not want wires trailing around the house this is a great way to get a wireless internet connection to another area of the house if you have blind spots. It was really easy to set up and has exceeded expectations in terms of performance. It works really well with the virgin superhub.
Summary: I bought this because the router from my broadband provider does not carry the wireless signal to the bedroom. I placed it halfway between the router and the bedroom and I can now get a full signal right the way through the house. It was easy to set up by following the instructions provided. I would definitely recommend this product which is really good value for money at just over ��2 per week.
It boosted my 2 Bar wireless signal to a 5 Bar wireless signal.

Excerpt: "I just bought this and found it very very easy to install. So much so that I created a Yoingco web page (installation tutorial) for it, here: http://www.yoingco.com/how_to_install_configure_tp_link_tl_wa830re_wireless_signal_range_extender_access_point_windows_7.htm I installed it downstairs next to my talktalk Huawei HG520b Wireless Router, so the range extender would give out a 5 Bar wireless signal strength. Once installed I then took the extender ...
Pros: Very very very very easy to install
Cons: cannot find anything wrong with the easy installation apart from the above mentioned control panel
