Easy setup, strong signal, no worries.
on 10 June 2013
I've purchased two of these units. I live in a large (almost) bungalow, with all of my network gear in the basement areas of the house, so my wifi has a lot of work to do. I had a Virgin Superhub (huge misnomer) installed about a year ago and I struggled to get a good wifi signal in all but a couple of rooms, which lead me to install the first of these TP-Link devices at the other end of the property linked via ethernet. Great coverage inside the house, though it's worth noting that the TP-Link covers about 80% of the house with a decent signal, while the Virgin Supergrub covers only about 40% of the house with a decent signal.
Anyhow, at long last the weather has changed and I've returned to sitting out in the garden with a glass of wine and my trusty iPad. Problem is that the TP-Link AP is at the opposite end of the house through several walls and the Supergrub, despite having to penetrate only 1 x 9" wall can't cut the mustard. Enter the 2nd TP-Link AP, now I have great coverage in both house and garden.
I've had no issues with the first device, which I purchased some months ago, the second device has installed just as easily and I've had no issues so far, but I'll let you know. A classic case of 'does what it says on the tin'.
