" ...  I bought this to replace an older TP-Link that was beginning to occasionally drop it's connection to my router.  ...  "
comment
" ...  This unit worked as I had hope to extend my signal from upstair to downstairs. ... It solved my downstairs TV issue by keeping the signal strong. ... I dedicated the TV to only access the extender vs. upstairs router.  ...  "

" ...  I was a bit confuse on how to install TP-Link | AC750 WiFi Range Extender and I am still learning how it works (not sure if I have to use the ether cord or does it work without.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The tp-link – Why all lowercase? ... Installation tip: When you are first setting up the RE220 and it ‘recommends’ a network name (SSID) for itself – this will typically be whatever is the name of the network (SSID) you have already running in your house but with an “_Ext” on the end. ... I mean, you can but if you truly want to seamlessly extend your network, then name it exactly the same as your home network name and use the same password, as well. ... This way you will always be on the ‘same’ network as you move about the house.  ...  "

" ...  Easy to set up, but it did not extend the range of our WiFi.  ...  "
comment
" ...  We bought this to use at home to boost and extend our WiFi signal.  ...  "
comment
" ...  One thing to note is that your extender can have the same SSID(s) as your router, so you can connect your devices to the extender by just rebooting them. ... And as with the router, the price was hard to believe.  ...  "

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).  ...  "

" ...  If you are like me and have a newer construction with LAN cables to each room, forget about "extending" the WiFi signal, but set up a separate Access Point in the points furthest from the Router, and you will have much better experience. ... it is a simple plug change on the wall and at your junction box and it becomes a LAN port .  ...  "

" ...  I plugged it in under my desk which is directly opposite of the wall where my Google Wifi hub that feeds the internet out to the rest of my home is located. ... It was easy to set up and I plugged my switch into the ethernet port then plugged in my server and main editing rig into the switch.  ...  "

comment
" ...  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. ... I don't know about you but my house does not have wired ethernet. ... 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.  ...  "
