N300 Universal Wireless Range Extender
Extend Your Wi-Fi Range
TP-LINK's TL-WA850RE is designed to conveniently extend the coverage and improve the signal strength of an existing wireless network to eliminate 'dead zones'. With 300Mbps wireless N speeds, Range Extender button, miniature size and wall mounting design, extending a wireless network has never been easier. What's more, its Ethernet port allows the TL-WA850RE to act as a wireless adapter to turn a wired device into a wireless one.
Cover your entire home in fast reliable Wi-Fi
The device's miniature size and wall-mounted design make it easy to deploy and move flexibly. What's more, the TL-WA850RE's profile function remembers previously paired wireless networks, meaning there is no need to reset the device when changing the paired router.
The TL-WA850RE's single Ethernet port allows the Extender to function as a wireless adapter to connect wired devices like Blu-ray players, gaming consoles, DVRs and Internet TVs. At the same time, the device can share the wireless network as well.
Plug and Play
With no new wires or cables, within range of their existing wireless network, users can easily extend wireless coverage at a push of the WPS button on their router followed by the Range Extender button on the TL-WA850RE or vice versa. An additional push of the pair button can quickly establish an encrypted connection with client devices.

Our router is on the first floor in the office (far east side of the house). I took the extender to the west side basement to test it out. [Test was quickly done using a Samsung Galaxy S3 on Verizon, used the wireless network settings menu to view signal strength and link speed]
Basement without the repeater: Signal strength: Good (one bar), Link Speed: 20 Mbps
Basement with repeater: Signal strength: Very Strong (full bars), Link speed 72 Mbps
So far, so good, but the intended application was for an out-building/ detached shop, located about another 100 feet west of the house (approx 200 feet from router, and multiple walls/obstructions). Only the very closest corner of the shop got signal previously, the rest of the shop the phone switched to 4G LTE.
Out Building without repeater: Signal strength: Poor (no bars indicated, only WiFi icon was lit), Link Speed: 1 to 5 Mbps
Out Building with repeater: Signal strength: Very Good (only missing one bar from full), Link Speed: 58 Mbps
Yeah Buddy! Everywhere in the shop has at least Good signal indicated, and the phone never goes to 4G LTE. Additionally, the Quick Start guide says that the signal shown on the device should show 3 lights for best performance. The outbuilding only gets 1 light (very minimum), but still able to reliably boost the WiFi transfer rate at least 10 fold; impressive.
Another plus; the repeater uses the same network name, so you don't need to add an additional saved network to your phone/laptop/etc. and then worry about switching between the two if you are moving around.
And folks THATS IT.. It is now extending the signal strength of your 2.4GHz WiFi network. I am glad I bought it and plan to soon purchase the Dual Band 2.4GHz and 5GHz extender from TP-LINK too.
UPDATE: This device was so good I purchased another one for my home. You have to try this awesome device!
I have a 1 storey home that my router covers very well but doesn't reach the backyard. We have a lot of landscaping and seating areas out here so I placed the repeater on a wall in the back of the house and now have a strong WIFI signal out here.
It also powers the Chrome Cast for the football games and night movies in the gazebo.
Oh ya, I'm in Phoenix so we live outdoors as much of the year as possible.
Setup was pretty easy. I had to use the browser setup. It failed the first time, but worked flawlessly on the second attempt. My router is ISP provided (Uverse) Motorola.
The Quick Installation Guide gives you two options to set up the device. One method is a Quick Setup using the WPS button on your Wi-Fi router. In case your router has no such button (mine does not) or you prefer to have more control over your setup, the guide also contains information on how to use a web browser to connect to the TP-LINK TL-WA860RE. That's the method that I chose.
I simply removed the Ethernet cable going from my computer to the Ethernet switch and plugged it in instead to the Ethernet connection on the TP-LINK TL-WA860RE. I then entered the repeater's name in my browser's search box. The computer (a Mac Mini) immediately recognized the TP-LINK TL-WA860RE and connected to it. I was then presented with a Quick Setup Wizard that was easy to use and had an amazing ability to see just about every Wi-Fi router in my neighborhood. (It was a shock to see how many of these there are in my residential neighborhood!)
Beside the Quick Setup, there are plenty of sophistical network analysis and configuration options available in the TP-LINK TL-WA860RE's web interface. You don't need to use them, but it's great to know that they are there for you.
After configuring the repeater in my upstairs home office, I unplugged it and plugged it into an AC socket near my basement work desk. The TP-LINK TL-WA860RE took a minute or so to boot and then automatically found my upstairs Wi-Fi router and started repeating it.Read more ›
