Box Contains

TP-Link 300Mbps Universal Wall-Plug Range Extender

From the Manufacturer

300 Mbps Universal Wi-Fi Range Extender TL-WA850RE

Escape Wi-Fi Dead Zones.

When your wireless won’t reach, a Wi-Fi range extender will bring your home back to life. Give your Wi-Fi a boost and keep your smartphones and tablets connected as you move around your home.

TP-LINK TL-WA850RE 300 Mbps Wi-Fi range extender works with any standard broadband router to extend Internet access throughout your home for wireless devices like iPads, iPods, laptops, smart phones and plenty of bandwidth for HD streaming and responsive online gaming.

Flexible to Place

The device's miniature size and wall-mounted design make it easy to deploy and move flexibly. Once connected with the router, you can simply unplug and plug it anywhere to extend the wireless signal.

Ethernet Bridge

The TL-WA850RE’s single Ethernet port allows the extender 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.

Easy Set Up

With no new wires or cables, you 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 within 2 minutes.

Smart Signal Indicator Light

Five signal lights show the strength of signal that TL-WA850RE receives from the existing router, which can help to find the right location to place the range extender.

First to get honesty out the way , although a very regular customer I bought mine from Argos , it was £1 dearer but I had a £10 voucher to use up and have just got a new tablet so wanted to see if I could extend my Wi-Fi now without waiting the few extra days for delivery.

Now I am usually one of those unlucky or jinxed so and so,s so especially around Christmas time no matter how "simple" or "plug and go" or "universal" or easy to set up and gadgets and gizmos are that I usually end up spending hours getting the damned things working , if I have resisted the temptation to simply bin it.

However with this Extender I as normal opted for the easy option first plugged it in pressed the wps button on the router , pressed the button on the extender and after about 90 seconds it was sorted.
The one thing I found perhaps its just me the process of the flashing lights and in particular what should and should not be flashing could be better explained as I at first thought I was having my usual gadget problems until it dawned on me that it was ok.

I must admit I did not waste ant time trying different spots for it , I already knew where my Wi-Fi was weakest , the kitchen , conservatory and living room , plugged it in the kitchen switched on tablet and BANG full strength Wi-Fi.

I am very very pleased both with the item and with myself for buying it.

I would not put anyone off buying one of these as its worked for me.

I had reservations as to whether this would do what it said, so just bought one to begin with. (On this occasion it was for my son's house where there are two levels separated by reinforced concrete floors and thick concrete walls.) I tried one and found it easy to set up the link with the unit close to the router, then by moving it to other locations to see what the signal strength was (even a single bar on the blue indicator scale seems enough) it was possible to find an optimum position to extend the range. After that I went on to get a second one and spread the coverage further. We may go for a third one after experimenting with these two for a while. Plus, after upgrading my own router I will seriously consider trying one or more in my own house. (I need to find out what the range is like anyway with the new router.) It is essential the router has a "WPS" button on it for initial setup, in which case it's only necessary to press that followed by the one on the link and the rest is just automatic. The new area covered by the range extender seems to be lifted to full strength as though close to the router itself, so all devices like smartphones and tablets work fine and laptops don't need hard wired links by e.g. ethernet links over the power system. I had heard that these extenders can be "daisychained" and so relay from one to another, but some elementary tests I carried out seemed to indicate that each one needed to pick up the signal from the router itself so requires to be within range of that.

Set-up is fairly simple as long as you are concentrating while you are doing it and once set up it works OK. We certainly have more wifi coverage around the house. Where we had no service we now have 1-2 bars which is useable for surfing etc but I wouldn't try to stream movies in these rooms. There is a bit of an issue with this little box where it suddenly crashes for no reason... the crash is a little strange because our network is still fully accessible through the TP Link but there is suddenly no internet available and we get the "Limited access" yellow triangle. Re-booting the TP Link corrects the error and this only happens every couple of days so it is not the end of the world. I'd certainly rather have this slight problem and 2 bars of service then no service at all so all is good and it is worth purchasing. I would point out that a laptop/phone can get a little confused if you sit an equal distance from both your wifi router and the TP Link... sometimes the laptop/phone can't make up it's mind which signal to connect to and starts switching from one to another so it's worth planning where to put the TP Link carfully to get optimum service from it :)

Very very easy to set up used wpa button the router then pressed the button on the extender 1min later job done . Only thing that confused me is that it takes the name of the router (as it is designed to do) so does nat appear to show up in the wireless network list. Does as they say what it says on the tin.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This TP-Link unit comes in a beautifully presented classy white box clearly modelled on those for Apple's Temple of Shiny products. Slide it out and the Range Extender 13A wall plug inside looks the part, with its superb white gloss looks and (very) bright circle of blue LEDs. In amongst the box is the small mini CD containing the full manual as pdf, and a short grey RJ45 network cable for the WiFi plugs optional single 10/100 Mbps network socket. The Range Extender supports n/g/b wireless with WEP, WPA/WPA2-PSK encryptions. I plugged the TP-Link Range Extender into a 13A socket next to my WiFi router as suggested.

I have a D-Link DIR-655 Pre-n/g/b WiFi router with a 4-port 1Gb switch, beefed up with D-link's high gain DWL-50AT antennae. The router has the easy link 'WPS button' to automatically connect to other network devices similarly endowed, like this Range Extender Plug. Initially I didn't get anywhere pushing both the WPS buttons, they didn't connect. Then I found if I pushed the Range Extenders front button once, and then let the flashing WiFi active LED come on for a while, and then pushed the DIR-655 Router WPS button, and then pushed the TP-link button a second time, the two mated perfectly. The rows of LEDs on the Range Extender plug all flashed on and off for a minute or so while connecting, and then the Wireless LED stayed flashing, the `RE' LED remained on, and all 5 LEDs of the signal strength meter lit up (the Extender plug was around 10 feet from the router). This meant that my D-Link router and the TP-Link range extender had mated 'for life' and now it's a simple matter to unplug the range extender and replug it back in, in any weaker WiFi signal area, where you have say a laptop or netbook struggling to connect.
