        After getting a new Comcast modem with wifi I could not get my year old medialink to act as a range extender. It worked fine in that capacity before with my previous modem and linksys router. After many emails and phone calls to medialink support (they insisted it should be working and the problem had to be location), I checked Staples.com and found this TP Link extender. First of all, it plugs right into an outlet. That's a winner right there. Tried the one button setup without success but once I connected to my laptop via ethernet setup was a breeze! Now I have a very strong signal where with the medialink I had none. I will definitely recommend this product.

          Received this item and 5 minutes later had it installed and working! The steps are easy: 1) plug into a wall socket near your wi-fi router. Click the WPS button on the router (mine was right on the front of my NetGear router). 2) Click the button on the front of the product. Done!

          My Wi-Fi router is on one side of my house, my wife's PC on the other. Using the Wi-Fi signal alone, she usually had 2, sometimes 3, bars on the task bar's signal strength meter. Now she has all 5. Upstairs, the wireless connection to my iPhone now runs full speed too! Can watch TV on the phone with no dropouts, as in the past!

          Opening the box, you will find the small Quick-Start guide which lead me through setup as described above. There is also a mini-Disc with PDF versions of the full User's Guide for two models. The instruction booklet that comes with the device also provides a manual set-up procedure using the router's web interface, and a short network cable that can be used for manual configuration, as well as supplying a direct connection allowing Wi-Fi access to a normally wired device i.e. a blu-ray player.

            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

            Decent range; slower speeds than router.

                  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.
