4.0 out of 5 stars Good so far, but a firmware update to the AP was required, 4 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
i'd suggest the documentation are not the best and if you're not used to networking these might not be the items you're looking for. But if you have a working router/wifi that struggles in your home/office then these seem to be pretty good. I've tried extenders and cheaper Access Points (AP) in the past and was disappointed, these cost a bit more, but appear to be worth it... i say "appear" as it's only Day 2 of them being in usage.

Firstly the controller s/w only runs on Windows, which is a pain, so had to load an old laptop into my Mac-rich environment and tried the software which spots the AP, but I can't do anything with it as the firmware is out of date. You can upgrade the firmware of the AP from the controller software, but not if its too old, which mine was. TP-LINK email support was crap in terms of assistance. I think tried to connect to the AP directly over http which worked (you can find the IP of the AP from the dashboard of the controller s/w) - from there I could flash the firmware and then use the controller to "adopt" it into my network.

Once that was done, it worked a treat. Its now in the house on the top 3 floor (3 story town house) with a plan to add a 2nd on the ground floor and then turn off the wifi on the router. Whats nice is that it can show usage by Mac address so you find out who in the house/office is stealing the bandwidth!!

Handy collection of bare labels, but a bit tricky to line up the top and bottom parts.

It's Dec 29th, they were a gift and the Zips have failed on 2 of the 3 bags. Not impressed, but I guess for the price you can't expect much

5.0 out of 5 stars Really does work., 22 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
skeptical at first as it didn't seem to work, despite being placed onto a hot radiator the fans didnt start. Left it for a while and eventually it kicked in and has been a revelation. Will look to potentially buy more for other rad's in the house. Its only day 1, so if I get anything more I will update this thread.

Needs a good signal to be of any use, anything slightly flakey it's a non-starter
