The TL-WA850RE 300 Mb/s Universal Wi-Fi Range Extender from TP-Link is designed to conveniently extend the coverage and improve the signal strength of an existing wireless network to eliminate "dead zones". With a 300 Mb/s wireless N speeds, the Range Extender button, miniature size, and wall mounting design, extending a wireless network has become user-friendly.

Furthermore, the Ethernet port allows the range extender to act as a wireless adapter to turn a wired device into a wireless one.

300 Mb/s Range Extender
The range extender is designed to conveniently extend the coverage and improve the signal strength of an existing wireless network to eliminate "dead zones." This helps you to maintain an existing wireless network and vastly improve the network's coverage. With 300 Mb/s wireless 802.11n speeds, it is suitable for smooth HD video, music streaming, and online gaming.
Flexible Deployment
The miniature size and wall-mounted design make it easy to deploy and move flexibly. Furthermore, the range extender profile function remembers previously paired wireless networks. There is no need to reset the device when changing the paired router.
Ethernet Bridge
Its 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
Smart Signal Indicator Light
Five signal lights represent the current signal strength that the range extender receives from the existing router, which can help you to find the right location to place it so that the device can achieve the best possible range and performance of the network
Plug-and-Play
With no new wires or cables, within the range of your existing wireless network, you can easily extend wireless coverage at a push of the WPS button on your router followed by the range extender button on the device or vice versa. An additional push of the pair button can quickly establish an encrypted connection with client devices.
Domain Name-Based Login
It supports the domain name-based login (http://tplinkextender.net) for advanced management.
Security
Advanced 64/128/152-bit WEP, WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK encryptions protect your network from security threats.

      Comments about TP-Link TL-WA850RE 300 Mb/s Universal Wi-Fi Range Extender:

      I live in a 2400 square foot house, I have an XBox One connected to my 84" HDTV. My Mac Pro is in my office which is in the front part of the house and the TV is in the back. I am a XBox Gold subscriber and run a wireless connection to the XBox. The XBox showed only two bars on signal strength until I purchased the TP-Link TL-WA850RE 300 Mb/s Universal WIFI Range Extender. I plugged the Range Extender in half way between the computer and the XBox, getting a full 100% signal strength and increasing the WIFI connection speed from two bars and 1.04Mbps to a full four bars and 21.83Mbps connectivity. For the price of the TP-Link TL-WA850RE and the quality of the devise it has solved my game up-dating and overall connectivity. I have found absolutely no negative aspects of this devise.

          It brought a stronger signal to the upstairs TV room, Netflix loaded faster and although it is not always the best strength its better than what we had.

            This really surprised me. Quick setup, easy to use, and works very well.
            I'd give 5 stars but for one small thing:
            I looked all over the information to find the MAC address, as my home network uses MAC filtering to reduce hacking...and couldn't find it anywhere. I was getting frustrated with what I considered lack of documentation.
            I unplugged the unit from the wall and happened to see on the back...
            I guess I should give it 5 stars after all. Right in plain sight, had I examined the unit before starting the process....
            This works very well. We are in an apartment with a very narrow and long hallway. With a variety of metal in our walls, the signal gets messed up before reaching a back office area. I started with the unit partway down the hall. It read full signal on the meter on the front, and I thought all was well. But I still only got partial signal in the back. I moved the unit to the very back where it showed only about half signal coming in. It must have been enough, because suddenly my MacBook Pro and my Netflix connections all showed full signal, rather than the two bars prior to that.
            I'll take that. My system has improved greatly.

              I wanted to improve my wi-fi upstairs so tried this product. Unfortunately it is not designed to work with walls and floors blocking the main wireless router signal. It picks up the wi-fi signal when in the same room as router, and is simple to add to a wi-fi network, but once you move it upstairs or into another room, it no longer does anuything to improve the signal strength. I spoke with TLink customer service directly and they confirmed that this device is best used to improve a weak signal in a large open area, not a typical house with several floors and levels. They recommend their wireless powerline adaptor which uses the whole electrical system of a home to transmit an internet connection from your main router to a seperate wi-fi booster/transmitter you plug into a wall socket right on another floor in the home. I will return this product and try the other one.
