    I am writing this review because so many people are giving it a bad review because frankly they do not know how the technology works. First off it is a signal extender and not a booster, meaning it will extend the signal you have but it will not increase the speed! The speed is only as fast as the signal coming into the house to your router! In my case I was not getting a good signal to my Ring Camera because the signal was not strong enough! You basically put the extender between where you are getting a good signal and where you want the signal to extend too. For example I used a speed tester app to find the best signal in between the router and where the signal is going!I have read several comments that say you need to understand how it works and doesn’t work. First off if you don’t know how the technology works then you don’t need to be writing a review. Other reviews said it creates a second SSID and they keep getting disconnected switching between the router and the extender! I will say this it was super easy to install just download the app by scanning the QR code in the instructions manual. Once the app is open create an account and follow the instructions. YES by default it creates a second SSID!Here is were you have to understand the technology. If you don’t want certain people for example to have access to the extender you can have a second passphrase so that only people you want to have access can. If you just want to extend the network throughout the house you have to name the SSID the same as the router SSID as well as the passphrase. What this will do is when you move into that part of the house your phone will automatically switch to the closest signal which is the extender. Yes you will be disconnected from one and connected to the other, but because the SSID and passphrase are the same for you it will be instantaneous! if you are listing to music or watching a video because of the buffer time you will not have any loss of service!In conclusion It is working as intended and doing what I needed it to do. I have a 200mbps connection from the cable company and I was getting 7mbps at the camera and now I am getting 65mbps and the camera is working so much better! The reason I am only getting 65mbps is because although the signal strength is better it’s not 100% full signal. I know their are other Extenders with better range but most of them have external antenna’s and I was putting this in the kitchen and wanted it to look as neat as possible for my wife.

    Our work Wi-Fi can be spotty sometimes and we run EVERYTHING on Wi-Fi now. From out point of sale to our music system… it’s all wireless so if our Wi-Fi goes wonky, everything starts to act weird. Before switching providers I thought I would give an extender a shot first. I didn’t want to go all in on an expensive item, so when I saw this model for less than $25 I went ahead and ordered it. It came today and so far, so good.I was a little worried about the installation after reading the reviews here. But when I got it and opened the instructions I saw there were three methods that could be used. I went with putting the app on my phone and going from there. This unit was up and running in less than ten minutes. Most of that time was just me re-checking to make sure I didn’t miss a step.First I installed the app. Next I plugged the unit into an outlet fairly close to our router. Then after it was on and running I connected my phone to the TP-Link wireless connection. After that I added a password for the extender, then backed out and reconnected to the router Wi-Fi. That was it. The next time I have a moment I will connect all the devices to the extender but I checked their network connections and sure enough, I see the new network option listed and ready to connect to.For reference, our business uses a local/regional provider called All Points Broadband. They use Cambium products, specifically cnPilot routers/access points. Our modem is pretty new (less than six months old) and is fairly reliable on its own. I just wanted to improve uptime to 99% or better.If you are not technically inclined, just follow the quick start guide and this extender is a great, cheaper option to improve Wi-Fi coverage in your home or business.

    So far? Nothing.But I’m not taking credit for the effectiveness of this little piece of tech. Previous reviews were pretty clear on its limitations:No, it doesn’t see through lead.No, it can’t write in cursive legibility. (“D”, “Z” and “G” are fun to write, though)And unfortunately, no, it won’t deliver pizza to 122 and 1/8th.But forgiveness is divine and I’ve found plenty of redemption because I got a wireless extender to extend an existing Comcast gateway (modem/router). And it works well for that purpose and the install was less than 10 minutes.I read the reviews that said the app didn’t work – my experience was fairly painless.1.Plug in near the router.2.Download app on mobile device/sign up for an account3.Name your TPLink extender/set password (the same as your router if you aren’t concerned about dual band mixing with devices or use the default “YourExistingRouterName_EXT”)4.Relocate to where you have a dead spot and look for the happy little green lights (or sad little red/non-existent lights and move closer)5.App will be mildly helpful if you need to relocate or run SpeedtestsI REALLY appreciated the ability to set a timer on the status lights to turn OFF at night. Nothing is more convenient than not having to see Hal and the rest of the technological community from 2001 forward pulsing all night long reminding me that I have too much stuff connected across the property.Silver lining? I didn’t succumb to the pod mesh money pit. (Apologies to my isp. They do look terribly precious but not 3pk for $160 precious.)All in all, I got stream the live action TMNT During this review for a little bit, saved enough cash to buy a pizza to celebrate a solid purchase, and haven’t messed anything up…yet.TP Link Wins. So I win. In your face 2020.

    Great product that works as advertised. I received the RE220 and read the instructions. After down loading the app I had it up and running in less than 10 minutes. My house is long and I was able to eliminate the dead zones at the end of my house and even get a nice 2 or 3 bar signal in the upstairs where there was previously no signal. It’s like having the whole house wired for internet. I even connected it to my old router from Frontier to check compatibility. It worked great, but it really made the cheap frontier router seem even slower and less capable so I purchased a TP-Link AC1200 router and set my frontier router to bridge mode and wow what an improvement! It’s a match made in heaven. It is super easy to configure all of the TP products from the app and not have to use a browser. I love it! If you need to use a browser however you can and all of the instructions are in the booklet. I fully recommend the RE220 especially if it is paired with another TP router.

    I’m not NOT tech-savvy, but always seem to have a nightmare of a time when setting up our wifi or changing out routers. So, I was kind of dreading this after reading some of the reviews for the 2018 version of this product. To my delight, the setup could not have been easier! It took all of 5 minutes and we were up and running with our extended network. We did some remodeling last year and added a LOT of natural stone, granite, tile, walls, etc. where there previously had been carpeting and an open room. These materials drained the wifi connection we get in the new areas, and the wifi range extender has brought that back to life. We’re excited to see if this helps to extend our signal onto the front and back porch, too!Very pleased so far.

    Living in an apt is hard to modify the place and wired it. I have the router on living room and one of bedroom the signal would drop around the room. Was thinking about wiring but found this extender and works great!!.Install took 5 seconds. Out of the box and plug into an outlet. Simple enough. Download the tp link app to setup and again took only couple of mins as long as you follow the app prompts. It creates 2 other ssid (if using both 2.4 and 5ghz signals) called same as ur current wifi but with Ext at the end. During setup you disconnect from ur wifi and connect temporarly to the extender then you can choose which one to connect to. Also simple to check what clients are connected to it.Its recommended to put between the router and the dead zone. Remember the weaker the signal it recieves the weakest will transmit is not a magic box, keep ir in mind while deciding where to install. Speed is great and now finally whole apt is covered. Definitively will get more when we move to a bigger place.Note: sometimes ur device will switch wifi ssid automatically but like our apartment sometimes it doesnt, if your speed start slowing down always check to what device you connected to.

    So far the TP-Link AC750 RE220 Dual-Band WiFi Extender (2019 release) has worked great and suits my needs perfectly.It’s small and visually appealing so you don’t need to worry about hiding a bulky or ugly device. It actually resembles an plugin oil diffuser like a lot of us might have. It is very light weight so it shouldn’t sag from the outlet when plugged in. You will lose an outlet plug and if that’s a problem you can always use an extension cord and put it where ever you want. The front of the RE220 boasts 5 easy to understand LEDs informing you of its status (power, ethernet, WiFi, 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands) and a WPS button. The bottom of the device has a high speed RJ45 ethernet port (this is absolutely golden for wired devices) and a reset button which is recessed so you don’t have to worry about accidentally pushing it and ensuring that you have to mean it when you do use that feature. It is supposed to work with any WiFi router. The mobile app and web user interface also give you management options like enabling the High Speed Mode, restricting particular devices for a specified amount of time and it even lets you turn off the LEDs if they might disturb your sleep or distract you. I personally have not used the extra features as of yet but they sound like they might be pretty useful, especially being able to turn off the LEDs. I think everyone has noticed blinking lights from various devices and they can be super annoying if they’re in your bedroom or visible when you’re trying to focus.The RE220 was very simple to set up with easy to follow step-by-step directions in the box, which guide you through the process and inform you about your options for setup (WPS, mobile app, web UI), where to find the app, a QR code for the app (this is also printed on the box) and the web UI address for setup if you opt to use a computer instead of the app or WPS feature. I chose to use the app which is also very simple which made the process all the more enjoyable. All you have to do is follow the on-screen prompts and it goes smoothly. It has you setup your 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz WiFi bands separately as they each have a password although it’s usually the same and it’s also true that not all networks are dual-band. I didn’t have a single problem during setup. It was quick and painless.The only setup issue I did have was mine. In my haste to get the RE220 going, I didn’t rename the extender’s WiFi signal to match my home network so it caused conflicts with my IoT devices that were trying to talk to each other because the network is password protected and I had actually created a second password protected network. This caused some communication issues. The instructions even tell you that you may want/need to do this but I was in a hurry so I could get other things done and overlooked that. Once the signal was renamed and the password set to match the original network it worked great and without issue. This was very easy to do within the mobile app but could also be easily done using a laptop or desktop computer.I bought this to solve an issue with a device I got a great deal on. I stumbled upon a used Sony Media Streaming Bluray player for $15. I couldn’t believe it and couldn’t pass it up. I didn’t really need it but I was tired of using my phone or laptop to stream movies and video to my bedroom TV. It was always a hassle and the only alternative was a wired connection directly to the TV and that in itself was a pain and more so if I wanted to play any of the discs that I have since my laptop doesn’t have a built-in disc player and I have to connect the USB BR/DVD/CD player. The problem was that the player required a wired network connection and not wireless. I can’t complain since it was practically free. I don’t know about you but my house does not have wired ethernet. I could do that myself but it’s time consuming and the money needed cancels any value in my purchase, in fact, it probably would have exceeded the cost of a brand new media player and I didn’t want to make that kind of investment just to get a media player on the network. My TV is a few years old and it doesn’t have WiFi or smart apps itself and I’m not ready to spend a few hundred just to get that kind of experience there either. Not when I can work around it for much less. This network extender allowed me to connect the Bluray player to the network using a spare network cable that was laying around from an old printer or maybe it was an outdated gateway from an internet old service provider. Regardless, the cable was brand new in the package and all I had to do was plug it into the TP-Link RE220 extender and my Bluray player and BAM the player was on the network and asking me to install updates. To top it all off, the WiFi signal in my bedroom is much stronger and everything using the RE220 signals have a much more reliable signal. That’s not to say my Arris Gateway didn’t give me a good signal to begin with, it’s just a stronger signal.The speed of the TP-Link RE220 AC750 WiFi Extender works great for watching Prime videos in HD. I get full 1080p just fine. There is always a loading delay but I think that’s the player which is a few years old so the memory and processor speed is not top of the line but it was $15 so again I’m not complaining. If you plan on watching 4k Ultra video, you may want to do some research to see if the TP-Link RE220 AC750 WiFi Extender meets your needs speed-wise, but it claims 433 MBps for 5 GHz and 300 MBps for the 2.4 GHz bands which should be fast enough but it’s not GigaBit speed for sure. I don’t have a GigaBit speed router so it wasn’t a concern. My TV isn’t 4k Ultra capable so I didn’t worry one bit about it. I did notice that when I watched a movie using the Amazon Prime app on the player, it checked the connection speed and displayed the result and it’s exactly what I see on my Samsung Galaxy S9+ on the home WiFi so the RE220 does not seem to be slower than the Arris Gateway my network is running on to begin with and the only speed issues I ever see are when too many devices are simultaneously using too much bandwidth (multiple HD TVs, cell phones, laptops, remote set top boxes, etc). First world problems…am I right? The only solution there is a faster internet connection and router which hasn’t been necessary and saves money and even if I did upgrade I think this WiFi extender would still suit my needs.

    I bought this to replace an older TP-Link that was beginning to occasionally drop it’s connection to my router. Before getting this one I tried 2 Net Gears that got better reviews than this one. Neither of the Net Gears would hold the connection to my router and they were not easy to set up. The directions were somewhat worthless. I had to read through the reviews on Amazon in order to find instructions that actually worked. I was really disappointed that after struggling to set up the Net Gears they didn’t work for me. I sent them back and decided to try this one. The instructions are clear and they work. I had the TP-Link up and going is just a few minutes. The connection to my router, which is located at the other end of my house, is steady and strong. My Roku is “happy”, my laptop is “happy”, and most of all I am happy that everything is properly connected to the net.

    This works perfect and was cheap! I bought the TP-Link AC2600 for $100 last year and it works great (still use it). Moved into a rental that didn’t have any ethernet ports so needed another one but didn’t have $100 to spend on another one and opted to try this one. It works just as good as the $100 model, plus it’s smaller and fits in the outlet better as the 2600 is very large and bulky. Easiest way to program (if you have access to your router) is plug it any outlet sort of close to router, hit the WEP button on your router, and then hit the button on the TP-link. It will auto program itself after about 5 minutes. When done, unplug it, take it to room you need it in, plug it in and it’s ready to go.

    This WIFI repeater does the job perfectly using the WIFI from my neighbor’s house. They get theirs paid for by their employer and offered it to my vacation home when I am there for free. It picks up their signal and re-transmits on another frequency back n forth easily. Probably 60 feet at least between my wall plug-in nearest their house exterior wall. Not sure where their router is located inside. Got to know their code if they have it locked up as they should. I change my thermostat, check the humidity, watch my Burglar system cameras, and monitor my flooding monitors in the basement from 400 miles away. What a world we are in today. Unlock the door and garage door opened for the maid over this inexpensive and highest rated WIFI repeater by Consumer Reports magazine. Been in operation now for over a year. Would by it again. Don’t hesitate to use in your own home to upgrade the signal in dead spots or throw the beam out to the Outhouse/Garage/workshed/pool. OH Yeah ! I need to install one at my BoatHouse lakeside! Git Er Done !
