  • Everything was working great, and I was able to cover my entire house with this extender
  • I was a little skeptical at first but after searching, reading reviews I found this gem and after a super quick installation its working just as
  • So I installed this TP-Link extender and the doorbell is working really well - no problems at all.
  • After figuring out the issue through a YouTube video the device connected and is currently working properly
  • This was easy to setup and has been working great since install.

coverage

Reviews around coverage (3.80 of 5)

  • That externder provides a 2.4G wifi connection much slower than the original, which has about 30+Mbps for 2.4G and 100Mbps for 5Ghz in not busy time.
  • This product did not SLOW DOWN my internet speed at all with great coverage.
  • Performance (speed, range) is quite good in my two story house - the unit is in a closet on the first floor, near the back, and I get good coverage and speed throughout the house
  • The o my complaint is that it does take up a whole socket- but the performance, quality of signal, ease of use and installment overshadow this small flaw.
  • With this extender, now I can have a nice, strong signal in the kitchen while there's still good coverage in a basement office

  • The TP-Link WiFi Extender does a good job and puts out a strong boost to a signal, once you are set up
  • The o my complaint is that it does take up a whole socket- but the performance, quality of signal, ease of use and installment overshadow this small flaw.
