  • 300Mbps Range Extender
  • The TL-WA850RE is designed to conveniently extend the coverage and improve the signal strength of an existing wireless network to eliminate "dead zones", help users maintain an existing wireless network and vastly improve the network's coverage. With 300Mbps wireless 802.11n speeds, it is ideal for smooth HD video, music streaming and online gaming.
  • Flexible deployment
  • The device's miniature size and wall-mounted design make it easy to deploy and move flexibly. What's more, the TL-WA850RE's profile function remembers previously paired wireless networks, meaning there is no need to reset the device when changing the paired router.
  • Plug and Play
  • With no new wires or cables, within range of their existing wireless network, users can easily extend wireless coverage at a push of the WPS button on their router followed by the Range Extender button on the TL-WA850RE or vice versa. An additional push of the pair button can quickly establish an encrypted connection with client devices.
  • Ethernet bridge
  • The TL-WA850RE's single Ethernet port allows the Extender to function as a wireless adapter to connect wired devices like Blu-ray players, gaming consoles, DVRs and Internet TVs. At the same time, the device can share the wireless network as well.
  • Smart signal indicator light
  • 5 signal lights represent the current signal strength that TL-WA850RE receives from existing router, which can help to find the right location to place the range extender so that the TL-WA850RE can achieve the best possible range and performance of the network.
  • Universal compatibility
  • Works seamlessly with all 802.11 b/g/n wireless devices. It is also compatible with the latest Windows 8 operating system.

Randomly Stops Working, Horrible to Install

By Jeff

from US

Comments about TP-Link Universal Wireless-N Range Extender:

I bought this to extend the wifi at my office. The address and username in the instructions to set it up were incorrect. I eventually found the correct one to use online. After fighting with it for some time, I was able to set it up. It managed to extend the signal for all cell phones using wifi, but all laptops couldn't connect and could no longer connect to the original signal.

I gave up at work since we have wires and it was mainly for cellphones. I took the unit home. After fighting with it again it finally worked. However, it randomly stops working and I have to unplug it and plug it in again to get it to work.

I am generally someone who other people come to for IT help. I can only imagine the trouble my father or coworkers would have had with this.

I gave it two stars since I eventually got it to work, but I would NEVER recommend this to anyone.

did not extend my signal

By TSquared79

from US

Comments about TP-Link Universal Wireless-N Range Extender:

Excited to buy this range extender after reading all the great reviews, but unfortunately it did not extend my signal. My router is in the basement of my home (1200 sq ft) and I often get dropped on the top floor. I used to get 1-2 bars on the top floor. After installing this range extender on the main floor right above where my router is located, I still only got 1-2 bars upstairs and my connection still drops. I reset and tried a new spot in my home 3 times with no improvement.
Going to return and try a different brand.

Bars Everywhere!

By Jeff

from US

Comments about TP-Link Universal Wireless-N Range Extender:

I get full bars on my computer and phone WiFi now where I had absolutely none before.

I would have given five stars, but it took some time to actually connect to the manager since the address given in the quick start guide was incorrect. I was finally able to get to it after checking out the FAQs on the website though.

Good Wi Fi Extension

By Michael

from Burnsville, Minnesota

Comments about TP-Link Universal Wireless-N Range Extender:

I found this product easy to set-up. I live in a rambler and used to only get a weak signal and had a dead zone at the other end of the house. Now, I get a decent signal in the entire house. However, the biggest highlight is that I now connect to the internet faster. For the price I would definitely recommend this product.

Improved download speed and wifi bars

By Sid

from Marietta, GA

Comments about TP-Link Universal Wireless-N Range Extender:

Sometimes it's hard to tell if my speed is improved or not, so I checked a speed test site and it showed my laptop's download speed improved after using this extender. My phone's wifi also now shows full bars constantly (even though it says not to use phones too close to it). I tried setting this up the next room over but it didn't work until I plugged it into the same room where I use wifi, on a different floor than the router. I don't think it's going to boost anyone's speed tremendously but it does give improve it. I haven't tried using my devices outside of the house so I can't speak to that. It took less than 15 minutes to set up completely.

Didn't work for our family.

By Jasmine

from North Carolina

Comments about TP-Link Universal Wireless-N Range Extender:

We live in a 3 story house, but there are only 2 stories being used most of the time. Nevertheless, there are ten people living in the home. With computers, laptops, gaming systems and phones, we have a LOT of devices. The main router is on the bottom floor, which is a finished basement. We wanted to use the range extender to get better coverage on the middle floor. It seemed to work for the first 2 days but then it wouldn't stay connected. The Iphones in the house would get dropped or the coverage was really lousy. It worked a bit better with the windows computers, but still dropped at times. Bottom line, we are not able to use this extender.

Works Well

By kdjoyce

from dublin, ohio

Comments about TP-Link Universal Wireless-N Range Extender:

THe TP-Link was easy to install and has added to our wireless signal strength. We are able to watch movies and TV shows without interruption that we previously experienced without the extender.
