On the plus side, I found these extenders to be pretty attractive -- they end up looking like those plug-in air fresheners, certainly less obtrusive than the newer RE210 version with the external antennas. And for the record the only different between these and the newer RE210's (other than appearance) is the 210's have a gigabit Ethernet port where these have a 100mbps Ethernet port. So unless you plan to use the wired port, save money on these.
Setup was also easy if you have a newer wifi router that has a WPS button. You just plug one of these into a wall outlet near the main router, hit the WPS button on the main router, hit the WPS button on the RE200 and wait a few minutes until all the lights are solid green. Then unplug it, move it where you want to permanently station it as an extender and wait a minute and you should be good to go. By default it duplicates the main routers network name (SSID) and your various devices should "roam" to the strongest signal as necessary.
Here are the caveats:
1) The easy WPS setup did not properly setup the 5.0GHz band of my router, only the 2.4GHz. Most wifi routers out now are "dual-band" -- they send separate signals out over both the 2.4GHz band and the 5.0GHz band. The 5.0 is much faster but typically has a shorter range. 2.4 is for older devices or greater distances, but also is more likely to experience interference from a host of other devices that use a similar band, from cordless phones to microwaves. Apple's routers disguise these two bands as one network name (which has both pros and cons) but most routers establish two network names, one for each band.
When the WPS setup was done, the RE210 claimed, via its light, to be broadcasting on both the 2.4 and 5.0 bands. But my first clue something wasn't right was that they only duplicated the 2.4 band network name. The WiFi Explorer showed they were broadcasting separately on both bands, but with only the 2.4 name. However, the Explorer also showed they were only bridging/connecting to the main router via the 2.4 band. So what was happening, but it's default setup, is the extenders were receiving signals from both 2.4 and 5.0 devices but down-converting any 5.0 devices to 2.4 when bridging to the main router. Which would result in much slower speeds that you should see for a 5.0 device. This is one of the reasons (but not the only one) that some people complain this slows down their network.
I was able to fix this by customizing the setup of the RE210's manually. I used an Ethernet cable attached to my laptop and the Ethernet port of each RE210 (one at a time). Then I opened a browser page to www.tplinkrepeater.net. It asked for a username and password. The default answers for both unless you change them are "admin". From there it was relatively straight forward to see that the connection to the main router's 5.0 band was "disconnected" and to follow the steps to connect it.
2) So now I had properly functioning dual-band extenders. But my performance was still far slower than when I was directly-connected to the main router on 5.0. This is because of two reasons. First, the maximum throughout speed capacity of the extenders is only about 1/3 that of my main router. They both use 5.0GHz and "ac" (the latest wifi standard), but the extenders have a lesser capacity. Second, Apple devices (which I primarily use) do a lousy job of "roaming." Roaming is when the device automatically switches from one device broadcasting the same network to another to get a better signal. It's the same way your mobile devices work from cell tower to tower. That's how the network extenders work too (by default*). But using WiFi Explorer I have been able to see that my Apple laptop gets very loyal to an extender even when the signal and speed are far worse than the main router. Windows and Android devices allow pretty discrete user control over how aggressively a device "roams" but Apple likes to keep it simple and not allow a lot of user control so they don't.
There is a way around this problem, with a trade-off. You can have the extenders broadcast their own discrete network names (SSID's). If you do this your devices will not automatically roam, you would have to manually device when you are getting a weak signal from the wifi device you are currently connected to tell it to switch to the other one. But this way you could be in full control of staying on the main router as much as possible and only switching in your known deadspots, especially if you give the extenders logical names (for example, if your main router was called "Joe WiFi" you could name your extender networks "Joe WiFi Upstairs" and "Joe WiFi Basement" etc.).
The other alternative, which I am seriously considering but haven't tried yet, is the undo all the configuring I described above and intentionally having the extenders only work on the 2.4 network. That way the 2.4 network would roam, but the 5.0 would stick with the main router. If I hit a truly deadspot I would manually switch over to the 2.4 network with the extenders. I have an ancillary motive in this plan, because most of the extenders are for deadspots my kids use -- their rooms, family room, etc. So doing this would have the secondary benefit of keeping the faster 5.0 network as uncongested as possible. Your needs may be different. A hybrid is also possible, I think, where you could roam on 2.4 but have the extenders use a unique network name for the 5.0 band.
Some devices will automatically switch to the new "stronger" signal when in range...some will not. Test this for yourself with a Wi-Fi app on your smart phone that shows the MAC address of the device you are connected to. You may be surprised to see that you have to manually connect to the TP-Link's network even though it has the same name as your primary network.
My personal experience with setting this device up was less than stellar.
For reference, my router is an ASUS RT-N66U. My primary network is configured with a hidden SSID, MAC address whitelisting, static IP assignments for all LAN (wired and wireless) devices, and WPA2 security. My primary Wi-Fi network broadcasts both 2.4 and 5ghz signals, this is the hidden SSID with MAC Address whitelisting and static IP assignments. However, I also broadcast a guest network, both 2.4 and 5ghz signals that is NOT hidden, and does NOT have MAC address whitelisting or static IP assignments. This guest network also does not have access to my LAN or local resources – it only gets outside internet rights.
Now before some of you pretend to be “IT experts” to tell me how you know that hidden SSID's and MAC address whitelisting doesn't stop "hackers" (which is not even relevant to this review) - save your breath and keystrokes - I'm not going to entertain that conversation at this time. I have been doing this for 15 years. And while I know MAC addresses can be spoofed and hidden SSID's can be found, it's the sum of the parts that count - not the parts individually.
This device hates MAC address whitelists. From what I can tell, it has 2 or 3 MAC addresses itself: 2.4ghz, 5ghz, LAN. Yet only a single MAC address is given on the back of the device. I was able to find the other MAC addresses for the device by disabling my whitelist and allowing the device to connect to my router on both signals then simply checking my DHCP list. I added the devices MAC addresses to my whitelist, re-enabled the whitelist, and it immediately stopped broadcasting. Bummer.
This device hates static IP assignments. This is due to the fact it uses multiple MAC addresses, if you want to use static IP assignments you have to add each MAC address and give them an IP. Not only that, but if you DON’T use a static IP assignment on the device, there is a chance that your router may give it a new local IP every time you move the device or reboot it. This can make it frustrating to try and get back to the device setup page if one minute you were connected to it with one IP but you moved the device now it has a new IP from your router so now you have to look in your routers DHCP list to find which IP was assigned. /yawn
On top of all of this, after an hour or so mucking about with the manual setup I figured I’d try the WPS setup. To do this you have to unhide your primary SSID, fine…
WPS worked! The extender is broadcasting on both channels! BUT… IT COMPLETELY WIPED OUT MY ROUTER SETTINGS – literally. It wiped my entire DHCP list, routing list, MAC address list, network configuration options, advanced options, network names, guest network configurations – EVERYTHING. It literally renamed my primary network (to some default name like “ASUS_99039230”), changed the Wi-Fi password, changed all of the settings, turned off QoS, turned off MAC address whitelisting…LOL. Luckily, I back up my router configuration every month, not a big deal to get it back to how I had it.
All that being said, the only way I can get this to work (with my set of particular “requirements”) for the time being was to disable my MAC address whitelisting. I also tested with allowing it to clone my primary network to see if the change-over from router connection to TP-Link connection would be seamless and automatic. It wasn’t. So for now I simply gave the TP-Link network its own unique name, and when I’m out of range of my router, I’ll just connect manually to the TP-Link – which to be fair, gives excellent signal strength and speed in the 2nd floor where I installed it.
Long story short, this is an excellent option for most people that simply use their router “out of the box” and employ very little to no network configuration beyond the default settings (aside from obviously assigning a new login and password for the router and Wi-Fi password). But if you’re a network geek like me and have done a ton of customization on your network and router, this device might give you some problems in your setup…and possibly wipe out your router configuration – at least if you’re using an RT-N66U and try the WPS setup…
