From the Manufacturer

300Mbps 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.

Worked like a dream. I spent 2 mins reading the Quick Installation Guide, ignored the set-up disc and went for the WPS option. Plugged the unit in close to my router, pressed the WPS button on the router and then the button on the front of the unit. Less than a minute later had a solid blue light against the 'RE' LED ('wireless' light flashes - but that is the norm). Unplugged the unit and moved it into another room to extend the wireless signal into the garden. 30 secs or so later the 'RE' light was solid again and I was able to connect my iPad out in the garden. Even switched the unit off at the socket overnight and it quickly picked up the router again next morning.

If you have a WPS button on your router, forget the install disc - you will just be making life hard for yourself!

No idea how this works- but it just does!

I connected using method one- press the WPS button on the router, press the button on this device. In about 30 seconds there was a good link. I then unplugged, relocated the device to my office at the rear of the house with a very hit and miss wifi coverage. After about 30 seconds again, maximum wifi strength on my iDevices! When I went into the rear garden, again excellent coverage which is just what I wanted so as to be able to stream music to a wireless speaker on the patio.

The clever part is that I also removed my TP-Link powerline adaptor which has fed the broadband via the telephone wires for several years now- and very successfully- and connected the PC's Ethernet cable into this new device. A quick look at method two on the instruction sheet, logging into the management page via the web browser and adding a username and password and now I have working Ethernet via the PC AND fabulous wifi. I can now re-use the old powerline adaptor for another application!

Having tried before to use a range extender which proved impossible to connect due to the difficulty and it got subsequently returned to Amazon, this is a breath of fresh air. No messing with IP addresses needed- the device does all that. Just two buttons, a minutes wait and you are connected. It is not even necessary to change anything on your phone, iPad or whatever, the IP addresses are the same.

I highly recommend this item in conclusion. It is nicely packaged and the instructions are simple- oh and it just works. What more can you ask for?
