Wireless Connectivity Inconsistent

Norfolk VA, Amazon
4 January 2014
  • Summary: The devices work fine for powerline networking when using ethernet cable. But We've found with our multiple devices (android phones, WiFi radio, Roku, Ouya, Windows laptop, and Kindle Fire) that the wireless access point needs to be rebooted multiple times a day.

The wireless is great from 10 feet away, not so great at 15 feet

  • Summary: I bought the wired version of this set last year when I moved my office from a guest bedroom to a bonus room upstairs. It worked flawlessly, but now my wireless router is too far from the rest of the house. I decided that a wireless version would offer internet in the rest of the house.

Could not get it to work with a reasonable amount of effort.

Paukenwirbel, Amazon

  • Summary: The documentation on this is almost unintelligible, part of the problem being that the included instructions seem to be written to cover multiple models, and it's almost impossible to tell which model's instructions the manual is giving at any particular time.

  • Summary: 5/6/2013 UPDATE: I originally gave this product five stars and a perfect review (see review below). But to my absolute dismay, several days later, I found the TP-Link had the WLAN enabled and security WLAN disabled by default.
