  • Summary: Using it to boost the Internet signal from the house to a metal shop garage about 100 feet away. Able to receive a great signal inside the building even though there's no windows. Setup was actually pretty easy though I had to call support due to my own ignorance. Support was extremely patient and helpful and resolved the problem quickly, which was my own error.

  • 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.

Perfect

  • Pros: These work great. You can hit the WPS button on your router, the WPS button on this, and sit back as it auto syncs. Then you're done. Takes maybe 30 seconds. You can see the LEDs on each device working then solid, so you know it's done. You can also direct plug into this and set it up as an AP. The menus are super easy with the integrated web browser.
  • Cons: None

Works great for extending

FarVision N., Newegg
10 July 2013
  • Pros: With WPS, this takes about five minutes to set up. We had been using a Mesh wireless product in our networks. They were always having issues. Up, down up down. it was ridiculous. We tried a few of these with a simple Linksys WRTGx series, and for less than the cost of ONE of the three wireless mesh units, we were getting full house coverage. We had three mesh nodes in place originally.
  • Cons: None that I can find. This is a larger unit, so if the client is demanding aesthetics, you may have to hide it somewhere. It does have the normal rabbit ears that some clients don't like to see.

Amazing extender

Aman B, FutureShop
27 April 2013
  • 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.

  • 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
