Style Name: AV200 WiFi Verified Purchase
I am really glad that I settled on this particular model. I spent a great deal of time comparing different makes and reading all of the reviews. Some of the reviews mentioned problems setting up etc which may scare some people off, so here is my honest straightforward experience of setting it up:

1) Plugged the TP-Link TL-WPA281into the extension block that my existing powerline adapter is plugged into (this is the one connected directly to my router via ethernet).

2) Pressed the sync button on the both for around a second or so.

3) They connected (you can tell this as the data lights on both will begin to flicker as they talk to each other)

4) I then unplugged the TP-Link TL-WPA281 and relocated it to my back livingroom which doesnt pick up the wifi from my router (which is located at the front of the house). ALL DONE!

I now have a wifi signal across the whole house (and the back garden). The TP-Link TL-WPA281 has its own SSID (wifi name) so I can easily see if Im connected to the routers wifi or the TP-Link TL-WPA281. Performance through the TP-Link TL-WPA281 is excellent, the wifi signal is strong, the speeds are very good, and the ping is only marginally higher than when I am connected to the routers wifi directly.

The only other thing I did was change the SSID of the TP-Link TL-WPA281. To do this you need to run the included CD on a windows machine. This allows you to access the TP-Link TL-WPA281's internal page (very similar to a routers internal page) and change various things. My existing routers SSID is something like Netgear N600, so I changed the TP-Link TL-WPA281's to Netgear N600 (BR) which stands for back room.

Now as I move around my house with my phone, laptop, or iPad, the devices jump between the router and the TP-Link TL-WPA281 automatically. When they switch you will drop connection for a few seconds or so but aside from that its pretty much seamless.

Style Name: AV500 WiFi Verified Purchase
I am giving TP-LINK TL-WPR4220 AV500 Powerline a two star rating for one specific reason; its not compatible with Google's Chromecast.

Prior to purchasing the TL-WPR4220 I had a TL-PA6030 Powerline unit plugged into a socket in our sitting room so that I could connect up our PVR and BluRay Player to our router, and that worked fine. However, since we suffered some wi-fi signal degradation in the same room and relocating the main router wasn't really an option I thought I would swap the PA6030 for the WPR4220. Having done so I set the WPR4220 to mimic our router SSID and everything seemed to be working fine. The wired connections all worked and wi-fi signal strength in the sitting room did improve.

However, then the problems began. At first I assumed it was a fault with the Chromecast, which started regularly disconnecting from the phones and tablets being used to control it (something it had never done before) and either refusing to reconnect or vanishing entirely from the network. Rebooting it or the App you were trying to 'Cast' sometimes fixed the problem, but not always. It started to get really frustrating, to the point where I began looking at alternatives to the Chromecast.

Then, out of idle curiosity I did a web search under 'TP-Link, wi-fi, Chromecast issues' and discovered from various forums (including TP-LINK's own) that this is a common issue with the TP-LINK's wi-fi enabled Powerline units. Apparently they simply can't communicate reliably with the Chromecast, resulting in the latter periodically disappearing from home networks, and so far TP-LINK have not offered any sort of firmware update to resolve the problem.

Bought to compliment TP_Link TL-WPA281 starter kit, but sent the kit back due to the following issue.

Easy to setup and worked well for 90% of the time. But at least once per day these would grind to a halt for a random amount of time. Restarting the devices didn't solve this problem - just had to wait for the units to sort themselves out. Tried firmware upgrades etc. but still had this issue. Returned to Amazon for a refund as these proved unfit for purpose. Replaced with Devolo dLAN 500 Wifi Starter kit, [...], these have been 100% reliable so far and do not have the degradation in speed issue of the TP-Link kit. Great whilst they are working, very poor when they failed, which was too often.

This is an updated version of previous, similar, purchase..
It will solve your connectivity problems by using the your internal power supply lines to distribute your internet connection.
It'll also boost the WiFi signal.

I bought this to extend my current powerline setup, works a treat even with the previous older units.

Very easy to use, comes with decent instruction. Recommended for a novice.

I've bought from TP Link before - and will again.

Style Name: AV500 WiFi Verified Purchase
Added this to existing non wireless powerline network running of bt home hub 3 to resolve weak wireless signal at other end of house to router.

It did not pick up the wps settings automatically as advertised despite several attempts to get it to work and following instructions religiously. As others have said about this product the instructions that come with the product are lame and the online help is useless so you really are on your own.

I resorted to manual configuration. If you use the default wireless set up then it works well however if you have tablets or laptop and move around the house obviously you lose strength in wireless connection as you move away from device so needing to drop the connection and then rejoin stronger connection. Basically a pain.

I then set up the device with same configuration as homehub3 (same wireless name and password). This is a bit confusing as you can't determine which network signal you're connected to unless you connect laptop to unit via wire and install admin clients to see connections to wireless port by MAC address.

This works perfectly with ipad and I no longer get a dropped connection as did previously without this in place. There is also much better connection speed although with some latency across the powerline which is to be expected.

Where this doesn't work so well is with older dell studio laptop running windows xp. That seems to get itself really confused about which network to join and effectively it prevents the wireless network working at all.

So to summarise, This is great for 2 network ports and works well if you want a wireless connection far away from your existing wireless for an ipad.
