Doesn't support roaming
18 September 2018
For my application, this was completely useless. Part of my house has poor wifi signal, so I got this item to try to extend the range. It's easy to set the access point up, and it was all configured, however, once I placed the access point downstairs, none of my devices were connecting to the access point, they were all remaining on the router.
Turns out, the signal strength of my router was just enough for my devices to pick up, and they remained tethered to the router as opposed to moving across to the AP. After reviewing some of the TP link documents, it's possible to configure "aggressive tethering" on windows devices, but there are only 3rd party hacks to get around this on mobile devices, which was my primary usage.
An alternative would have been to connect the AP to the router via ethernet, then push the signal out, however, I've not got a clear cabling route to achieve that either.
It would be great if the listing had made it clear that most devices will remain tethered to the router by default..
