TP-Link TL-WA850RE 300Mbps Wi-Fi Range Extender : Review

The need of WiFi is so important in today’s world that little interruption in the signal will irritate and no doubt will spoil your mood. I live in 2 BHK with my router placed in the hall which is most appropriate place in order to get a good signal all over the house. But still faced the issue in streaming Netflix quite a times when my bedroom doors are closed. This is my problem but different people face the same problem of getting a weak signal in a different way. As we all know that necessity is the mother of invention. Though I didn’t invent this, after exploring a lot on google I came across the solution: TP-Link TL-WA850RE 300Mbps Universal Wi-Fi Range Extender. I will not go until the end to give my verdict. I will say right now that I am satisfied.

This small instrument is such an invention that you won’t regret buying. The price of INR 1299 is actually a deal but you can further get cashback on Amazon.in if you pay with Amazon Wallet. The TP-Link TL-WA850RE 300Mbps Universal Wi-Fi Range Extender configuration is very smooth and instruments small size/wall mounted size is easy to deploy anywhere.

Plug and Play:

One of the biggest advantages of this small equipment is that with no extra wires or cables, within range of their existing wireless network, users can easily extend wireless coverage at a push of the WPS button on the router followed by the button on the TP-Link TL-WA850RE 300Mbps Universal Wi-Fi Range Extender. In short, the configuration is such a simple process that a novice can easily complete the process without difficulty.

Range:

For me, the range was quite good without much reduction in the speed. I have 25 Mbps plan, and with a door and wall in between, I was getting 22-23 Mbps in my bedroom. Within the same floor, reach was impressive with almost nil blind spots. If you have 2 floors then the scenario will be different and there might be some reduction in performance.

Warranty:

Under this, you will be provided with 3 years Manufacturers Warranty.

Compatibility

The extender can be connected to all 802.11 b/g/n wireless devices. Also, the repeater copies the login ID and password of the parent WiFi.

Ethernet Bridge

There is an Ethernet port under on the bottom side of the extender which allows the Extender to function as a wireless adapter. One can connect the wired devices such as Blu-ray players, gaming consoles, DVRs and Internet TVs without much hassle. Simultaneously the extender can share the wireless network as well.

My Verdict:

Its worth the money, if you are seriously facing the signal issue because of the Vastu or structure of your home. Go for it.
