Summary: Works as expected. I use two of these along with two of the TL-WA850s to create setup a temporary wireless network for a sporting event that I host. It's important that you bridge these correctly if you are using more than one.
Summary: Worked ok with stock firmware, rock-solid with OpenWRT. Has been running OpenWRT for months now without me even looking at it. Didn't try the WebUI for OpenWRT as this unit has very little storage. If you're not comfortable with command line setup you may want to stick with the stock firmware.
Summary: when i travel we have no signal at all if any on the ocean resort where we stay; this was a godsend once we figured out how to set it up; it took a while to find the "hot spot" to grab what signal we could and once we did we were good to go; 5 bars of signal!!!
Summary: The item I received looked exactly as pictured, but I ordered through Amazon, not a 3rd party seller. The extender worked like a charm, unless i changed the SSID or password to something other than that of the base router. This was not a big deal to me, so i did not look into a solution.
Summary: This unit has done its job and extended the range on the other side of the house where a brick wall was decreasing the signal. The only downfall is that it seems that I have to reboot it every couple days, other than that, strong coverage.
