        once it was setup it worked well. it had to be setup with included cable, no other way worked. used it with a smartfone to boost signal and it worked good. used it with a belkin router and it worked but the router reset itself every few hrs and it locked itself out. when I shut off the htc smartfone and turned it back on, same lockout occurred but smartfone overcame issue with lockout in 2 minutes by itself. belkin wouldn't. a better router may be in order for me. once router locked out the tp link had to be reset. I will still keep the booster, it streamed Netflix well with the smartfone with wifi, plus you can plug it into your device with the included Ethernet cable

        Bought this to extend the range to 2nd floor of our house for an Asus RT-N66W router. Set up is easy and all you do is press the WPS button and wait. However accessing the advanced setup options using a browser on a device was kind of pain because it won't always connect to the http://tplinkextender.net website. I had to find the IP address and type it in to connect and change settings (i.e. rename SSID etc.). Anyway, the signal strength upstairs with TP Link is better than the router signal (by 5 dBm) but connection speed and throughput is poorer. I would say about 25-30% poorer, tested using several software, both on computers and mobile devices. So if you don't care about high speeds and just want a better signal then it might work for you. I'm probably going to return this and try some antennae on router.

        This wireless range extender was very easy to set up and it works great. It has extended my Wi-Fi signal through 2 walls and across a patio. I now have excellent signal throughout my property.

        Super glad I found this product. I've been using for a few weeks now, and I haven't had any issues with it. We have a dead spot in the bedroom areas so streaming movies and surfing the internet was a little difficult. We now get a full signal and streaming is a breeze. It says you should set this up in a hallway, but we have it set up in the bedroom and the signal is still very strong. Set up was very easy, and the instructions were very easy to follow. I high recommend this to anyone who may need a strong signal.

        Seems to be working

        Weirdly, the first day this thing arrived, I was unable to get it to light up the way it's supposed to do, to show that it's getting a WiFi signal, either by using the button-pressing system or the computer-based setup system. Then, when I prepared to try again 24 hours later, it was already working fine. We've used it to watch one Netflix program so far, and it worked. Previously, our Comcast "gateway" device (modem + router) in the kitchen was unable to provide a good enough signal to reach the bedroom upstairs, and it would stall many times per program. It's early to give a certain verdict, but promising so far.
