    Works great. I thought Internet speed was the problem before installing this extender. The real problem was the Xfinity router’s broadcast range; It’s not great and drops the signal often- probably because it doesn’t handle a couple of tvs and a few phones connected to it simultaneously. This TP link wifi extender fixed all of that. If you live in a 2 story home, you should have an extender for the floor that your wifi router is not on.
    For wifi safety/ health impacts, you can unplug and plug this extender whenever you like without complications. And you can also set up a broadcast schedule in the tp link app you download onto your phone for initial setup.

    My daughter gifted me a digital picture frame for pics of the grandkids. Unfortunately it wouldn’t work more than about 15’ from my router. So I purchased this extender hoping it would help and it did. Pretty easy to set up for this old man. As others have mentioned, don’t set it up using the downloaded app. Syncing it with your router is easy and works fine. Solved my problem at a very reasonable price.

    I bought this to replace a cheap, no-name WiFi extender that i bought based off decent reviews. Brand CUU 2022 newest WiFi extender booster repeater 4000 sqft- blah blah blah. It was $2 more than this, the size of a pack of cigarettes, single band (2.4G) and only rated for 300mbps. That was a mistake. The ONLY job the extender needed to do was boost the signal for a Firestick that’s plugged into my old tv i brought into the garage i dispatch out of. I work for a utility company so we garage out of an old converted airplane hanger, and we sit around inside in the morning waiting for our work, and at the end of the day when we do or timesheets – so we wanted to be able to watch the news and whatever else during that downtime. The router is only about 70 feet away, but a hallway separates us, so the WiFi signal has to make it through 2 concrete walls. Without an extender the tv would constantly buffer, or just stall and lose signal, or the image quality was horrible. Basically we were unable to watch anything without it constantly having issues every few minutes. So not being a tech guy – i bought (what i thought) was a real cheap extender figuring anything would be good enough. The difference in build quality and performance (so far) between my first purchase and this model is huge – and this was $2 cheaper. First off its dual band, so does both 2.4G and 5G bands. The 1200mbps (from what i understand) is the combined signal capacity, but you wont actually get that since you have to pick one of the two network signals. It actually gives you two different WiFi networks you can connect to (maybe thats beneficial to someone, i have no idea). I know enough to know the 5G is better. I installed this via TP’s tether app (i think thats what it was called), and even for someone like me, it was painless. The instructions are very clear, and self explanatory once you launch the app. All you need is your routers password, and obviously the name of its WiFi signal. After install and connection, youll get two more WiFi signals to pick from to connect onto. One will say EXT on the end, and the other will say EXT 5G or something similar. I picked the 5G to connect my phone and Firestick to. Hooking up the Firestick to it was just as easy. Whats cool with the app, is you can even control and monitor WHO and WHAT are connected on the extenders network. It’ll show you how many devices are connected to each band (they show up as 2 different WiFi signals), what type of devices are connected, and will even let you block unwanted devices if they connect to your extenders WiFi signal. If nothing else itll be fun to mess with the other 20 guys i work with – if they figure out how to connect to it lol. I can literally sit there with my phone and turn their connection on and off it looks like. But yea, what you get with this (a name brand unit from what I’m told) is leaps and bounds above what i just returned, and was basically the same price. I just hooked it up today, so its still early – but so far the Firestick is working fine on a 4K tv. Picture quality is great, nothing is too slow to load, and most important the Firestick hasnt been buffering or had the signal stall out at all. And remember – its extending a signal thats behind 2 cinder block walls with metal doors – so probably a bit more than youll have to deal with in a house. If it starts giving me any issues – i will report back. So far I’m much happier with this then the last purchase. So happy i didnt give up and just keep what i first bought. Its hard these days will all the fake reviews for products – and I promise you this is a completely honest and no BS review.
    Not that i tried them all, but they give you 3 different options on how to connect this to your router. I suggest scanning the QR code in the instructions, downloading the app and installing it that way. If nothing else it’s pretty cool to actually be able to SEE who and what is connected to your new signal.

    Edit: Ok so its been about a month now. My opinion of this product has not changed. The Firestick/tv has experienced from VERY minor buffering very infrequently, mostly in the morning when everyone is in the building (probably peak traffic for our router) so for me to claim it “never” buffers wouldn’t be accurate. Its most definitely not something that I would even attempt or consider addressing given my particular situation and conditions. Our router is running half of our construction garage with close to a dozen desktops in different rooms just on our side of the building. Every tech has company tablets, so thats at least 20 guys just in my group alone that are splitting their signals between cell service and WiFi when they are close enough to jump on it. Just making the point our router is already handling way more stuff then anyone would experience at home, so some VERY and infrequent hiccup on the Tv is easily forgiven in my eyes under these circumstances. The day after thanksgiving we only had about 5 guys in, and were held back in the garage all day just to respond to any emergency call that might come in. I streamed the News, then John Wick 1 and 2 off Tubi with the Firestick and it was rock solid the entire time. I wouldn’t not hesitate for a second if i needed one of these for home.

    O repetidor realmente cumpre o que promete, ele manda um sinal forte e que não fica oscilando tanto.

    No meu caso eu uso esse repetidor para expandir um sinal do roteador da Vivo que não presta. O repetidor da TP-Link fica em uma tomada onde consegue pegar o sinal de internet forte e expande para outros cômodos da casa. Ficou excelente para o proposito dele, que é usar smartphones nos quartos e um Fire TV Stick.

    Esse repetidor da TP-Link é muito bonito, é um produto com ótimo aspecto e bom acabamento. Além disso ele é bem compacto, mais do que eu imaginava pelo menos. O único fator que pode incomodar um pouco são as luzes na frente dele, porque elas são muito fortes e podem incomodar a noite dependendo da localização e infelizmente eu não achei opções de apagar os LEDs de status.

    O aplicativo em si é muito fácil de configurar, excelente para aqueles que não entendem muito de tecnologia. Um usuário com pouca experiência conseguiria configurar com certa facilidade.

    Agora sobre velocidade, infelizmente ele é “lento”. Ele é bom o suficiente para uma casa com pouca necessidade de velocidade e baixa demanda de uso da rede. Nos testes de velocidade que fiz usando o Speedtest, ele ficou na faixa de 11MB podendo chegar até 20MB de download e o mesmo resultado se aplica a banda de upload. É uma velocidade muito baixa, mas ao mesmo tempo é rápido o suficiente para um smartphone onde o uso seria redes sociais e YouTube. Nos meus testes, para uso básico do dia a dia, incluindo streaming de aplicativos como Netflix e Amazon Prime, foi ótimo (para qualidade Full HD de vídeos).

    Para quem deseja maior velocidade, é melhor adquirir o outro modelo que tem sinal 2G e 5G (Dual Band). Além disso, esse repetidor é ideal e casa com poucas pessoas que usariam internet simultaneamente. Por exemplo, aqui em casa o uso é de até 4 pessoas, então ele funciona bem. Porém, se 4 pessoas estiverem usando ativamente a internet, baixando coisas no PC ou assistindo Netflix/Prime e outras coisas que demandam maior banda… é MUITO provável que esse repetidor da TP-Link não dê conta. Então é bom ter em mente o uso do aparelho antes de comprar ele, lembrando que o sinal é básico 2.4GHz e velocidade baixa.

    Apesar dos pesares, eu ainda dou 5 estrelas e recomendo a compra, pois o repetidor funciona conforme o propósito dele e cobre uma área enorme com Wi-fi. Eu moro num apartamento de 120m² e ele sozinho consegue cobrir a casa toda, sendo que o roteador da Vivo só consegue chegar na sala e cozinha.

    I own a 4500 sq ft two story home. We use one of the bedrooms upstairs as our office and our modem and router are located there. Our family room is located downstairs and the wifi signal is weakest in this area. We have lived with it for several years and used a satellite TV service. We decided to eliminate the TV service and go to streaming. Thats when we discovered the weak wifi signal as an issue. We bought this TP Link wifi extender. It arrived the next day and I installed it. Bam!, no more issues with a weak signal and the TV works perfectly. The extender was easy to setup. They give you three different methods to set it up but I used the WAN button on the router method. We have 2.4 and 5.0 channels and the extender picked up on both. You press the wan button on the router, then press the wan button on the extender. Wait for it to connect (takes a minute or two) and it connects to the 2.4. Then repeat the process and it connects to the 5.0. Unplug it and move to an outlet in the weak area. If the signal getting to the extender is not strong enough, the light will be red instead of white. If this happens then move the extender to an outlet a little closer to the router. It couldn’t have been easier. Very happy with this wifi extender.

    I needed to connect a computer and other devices without wi-fi so I bought this as a bridge to connect to my ASUS AiMesh system. Settings up the RE315 was very easy to setup as typical for TP-Link home products (I have several of their products) and I was up and running in maybe less than 10 minutes.

    Unfortunately, despite having a strong connection to my 5 GHz network, speed tests were capped at around 100 Mbps even though the theoretical limit is 867 Mbs. After search the web for help, I found out that the RE315 has an older 100 Mbps ethernet port. That is, the hardware is capping the wired throughput. I didn’t find this anywhere in the sales literature so it must be buried in some technical document.

    It is a real shame to cripple the device like this but as it was really cheap and very reliable, and 100 Mbps is fast enough for my needs, I’m still going to keep it.

    It would have been 5 stars but I’m lowering it to 4 for not advertising the ethernet port speed.

    It was pretty quick and easy to setup using the website method.
    I prefer web-configured or console-configured devices.

    It was needed to extend the WiFi signals from the ISP-provided CPE.
    Even though this is setup as a repeater/range-extender, there was no loss of bandwidth (which sometimes is the case when a repeater/range-extender is setup).

    It has 4 LED’s with soft-white lighting when every thing is working. When the WiFi is adjusting for interference, one of the LED’s will temporarily turn orange, then the LED turns white again when things are working optimally.
