Difficult to setup, but finally done

Xiaoyan Yuan, Amazon
14 May 2014
  • Summary: It took me more than half an hour to setup this to connect my existing network with the TL-PA211s. At first, the client asks me to setup the IP addresses myself, plus the gateway, plus the DNS servers. It could be because it created its own network instead of joining the existing one. PA211s need 3-8 seconds to join networks.

Great product, just not perfect...

DnP, Amazon

  • Summary: These work great and the wireless transmitter has decent range, but the one drawback is that it creates a separate wireless network from the one already in your house. This is minor if you're not moving around while connected, since most devices automatically connect to the strongest signal, but it may cause issues with connection sensitive applications while moving between the networks.

Great Device, Installation Tough (see note below)

RTSarge "RTSarge", Amazon

  • Summary: Great networking devices by TP-Link, but this one is only a good device because of the installation. The instructions for pairing a 3rd device are not overly clear and the softward for setting the wireless security is provided on a mini-cd - useless if you dont have a compatable drive.

Strong signal. Easy set up

Mhot55, Amazon

  • Summary: Has seemingly worked fine for me. Router upstairs front of house. Power line wireless is downstairs back of house. Prior was getting spotty wireless signal. Now everything is strong and never drops. Blu ray, Xbox, wii, and computer have no problem getting a strong signal.

3 Minutes to Set Up

Adam, Amazon
13 November 2013
  • Summary: Literally took 3 minutes to set this up and get rolling. Just ordered additional adapters. One thing to keep an eye on is fluctuations of lighting (especially if on dimmers). Not sure if this affects the occasional dimming of lights or if it is something else in my house. Overall, impressed with the product.

Great device !!!

Hassan Alsaraireh, Amazon
7 October 2013
  • Summary: Just works as advertised, very easy installation even before reading user manual. I didn't give 5 stars just because I found the TL-WPA281 Wi-Fi range not so good, but still probably I'll buy more TL-WPA281 units to extend the wifi in my house.

Works but needs to be reset occasionally

Mark, Amazon
12 September 2013
  • Summary: Works well and fairly flawlessly with my other Netgear brand Powerline Adapters and it provides a decent signal at the other end of the house for wifi however I have found that at least once my wifi stuff stops connecting with it and it needs to be unplugged and plugged back in to reset it.

Powerline is Awesome

Creg, Amazon
21 August 2013
  • Summary: I've always wanted to invest in a powerline product. Well... I did. For the first time, I had a situation that actually required me to purchase it. My situation included a router that could not extend its wireless signal to my 3rd floor. So, as you can imagine, I used the TP-Link TL-WPA281 to extend my wireless signal up to the 3rd floor. It works perfectly.

I really like these!

Cesar B. Nascimento "Cesar Nascimento", Amazon

  • Summary: I committed an mistake when planning the network distribution on my new house. The electrical plant was very well design though! I had bad experiences using wifi repeaters trying to boost my central wireless signal ... And these beauties solved my problem! I bought two pairs of the Starter Kit and now I have internet on both bedrooms, office and still one spare unit ;-) The pairing process can be painfull.
