Would not work properly.

  • Summary: You get what you pay for. It would not work properly, regardless of how I tried to set it up. The software would not work properly when connected for manual setup. I Wasted several hours. I am tech-savvy, so no, it wasn't my incompetence, it's just a poor product.

  • Summary: I have tried for over a month to make this work, but it continues to create conflicts with my Verizon router. Tp-link's customer service personnel were not helpful. I even hired a college IT person, but he was unable to make it work. I should have given up sooner and returned it.

  • Summary: I am in the process of trying to return my darned TL-WA830RE wireless range extender purchased in July. I am able to get it to work for an hour or two at the most, and then I need to power cycle it and go through the whole setup process again.

  • Summary: I used two of these, one as a base station and one as a range extender. I tried following the wizards, and got it to work but had some trouble. The documentation was poor (that's being nice) and these devices continued to just quit working after some time.
