Does not seem compatible with my service

By TP- Link

from Parma, Ohio

Comments about TP-Link 300Mbps Wi-Fi Range Extender with Ac Pass-through:

I was hoping this would have helped with my internet range, as I have a Smart TV and do use the TV for streaming movies. Set up was easy once I contacted customer service to assist me. They were very helpful and knowledgeable. Once hooked up and linked with my router my internet started freezing up and became extremely slow. I thought it was my internet. I unplugged the unit and everything was fine. I then plugged the unit back in again and all slowed down again. I am not sure maybe its not compatible as I have Att Uverse.

TP LINK® TL-WA860RE 300 Mbps WiFi Range Extender

By GXAOUI

from Oakland California

Comments about TP-Link 300Mbps Wi-Fi Range Extender with Ac Pass-through:

This device works well, it has greatly improved my WiFi range and speed. It was easy to set up and use. The start up procedures were easy to follow and informative. It took only a few minuets to be up and running, then it was just a mater of plugging it in to an outlet in a dead zone of my house. Speed in that area went from poor to excellent immediately.

Easy set up

By Christine K

from Norristown

Comments about TP-Link 300Mbps Wi-Fi Range Extender with Ac Pass-through:

This extender was easy to set up. Ready to set up right out of the box. The directions were easy to follow. Syncing to router was the press of 2 buttons and took less then 5 min. Once I synced it with the router then I had a hard time finding a location far enough away from the router to place the extender. I tried outlets in 3 places before it turned green indicating it was far enough away. The router is in the basement and I use to have trouble with wifi in the bedrooms. Once I found a place for the router I now have a strong signal in my bedrooms. I can also go further outside as well. I recommend this product if you don't have a strong signal in parts of your house.

from Des plaines,il

Comments about TP-Link 300Mbps Wi-Fi Range Extender with Ac Pass-through:

This product was easy to set up. We could see a definite improvement of our WiFi range on the far side of our house away from our router. I would recommend this to anyone that is looking for more WiFi coverage in their house.

works well and easy to install

By Helene

from Columbus, OH

Comments about TP-Link 300Mbps Wi-Fi Range Extender with Ac Pass-through:

This range extender was great to use out of the box. The 'Quick Installation Guide' was available in both English and Spanish, and the English version, at least, was easy to follow. There were two ways to install, depending on whether your router has a WPS button or not. Mine did, and installation was complete in a matter of minutes. If your router does not have a WPS button there is a way to install the Range Extender using your computer browser.

The colored lights on the Range Extender clearly indicate whether you have chosen the location for the Extender properly.

The Extender is powered by plugging it into a household outlet, but because the Extender has a household outlet built into the front, you don't lose an outlet, which is a great feature. And I was able to use my wireless devices another 30 feet more than without the Extender.

The only reason I gave this 4 stars instead of 5 is that the antennae are thin plastic 'rods' that protrude several inches above the top of the extender, and I have some concerns about their durability. It hasn't happened in the two weeks I have had the device, but I think it would be easy to accidentally break the antennae off.

Range extender doesn't work very well

By AsianDallasAttorney

from Richardson

Comments about TP-Link 300Mbps Wi-Fi Range Extender with Ac Pass-through:

I got the TP-Link TL-WA860RE Range Extender. The device does not seem to work very well as a range extender. The AC outlet on the device is convenient because it allows me to to use the outlet plug. I do like this feature on the device. There was no assembly required. However, if the device required assembly, I would hope that the device would come with assembly instructions. Without assembly instructions, I'm not sure I would have been able to put the device together. The device did come with limited instruction to set up the device for recognition. It took me some time to hook up the device and have it registered to my home network. The device instructions were confusing and difficult to understand. I spent over 45 minutes trying to set up the device on my router and my computer. If this range extender provided faster download and upload speeds, it might be more useful. Even though the device seems to extend the wireless coverage, it fails to meet my expectations. I would not recommend the use of this product to my family or friends. Over all, this device is not of value since its browsing speed is limited and slow.

TLW-1 Review

By Jeff

from Columbus, OH

Comments about TP-Link 300Mbps Wi-Fi Range Extender with Ac Pass-through:

The TP Link 300 Mbps wifi range extender was very easy to set up. By either reseting the WPS switch on the router or following the simple guide for online setup, the range extender was up and running in a matter of minutes. The indicator lights made it easy to see how well the unit was communicating with the router. I tried the unit in several rooms of varying distance from tne router and was able to maintain coverage throughout my entire home and even into the yard outside. I tested it using laptops running win7, win 8.1, two macs, an iPad, and an android tablet. All devices worked with the android tablet having the shortest range and the win 8.1 laptop having the greatest range.

TP Link WIFI Extender is awesome

By LadyLisa330

from Atlanta GA

Comments about TP-Link 300Mbps Wi-Fi Range Extender with Ac Pass-through:

This was very eady to setup. I took it out of the box and everything was already assembled. The instructions were easy to follow. When I plugged thw TP LINK into the outlet about 3 feet away it would'nt connect. I tried 3 attempts and no connect. I MOVED THE TPLINK 12 inches away and Eureka!
It took 2 attempts and I was connected. What I like best was it could be moved anywhere around the house after the initial sync up. I LIKE BEING ABLE TO ASSIGN A different password to the TPLINK so when guess come over I gave them the TPLINKpassword instead of my home WIFI password.
I was very impressed with the range of this extender. It even worked in my basement. I have already told my daughter and a few co-workers about my new found technology.

Easy Install - More WiFi

By LAmacguy

from Los Angeles

Comments about TP-Link 300Mbps Wi-Fi Range Extender with Ac Pass-through:

The installation was VERY easy (know your current WiFi password). It extends the WiFi in my house to rooms that had bad reception before and it has an electrical outlet built in so that I don't loose one.
