    What This Product Does
    TP-LINKs TL-WA830RE 300Mbps Wireless N Range Extender is designed to extend the coverage and improve the signal strength of an existing wireless network to eliminate dead zones. Combined with leading wireless N technologies, superior security and wider compatibility, TL-WA830RE makes it a secure high speed solution that can help you keep an existing wireless network unchanged and vastly improve the networks coverage, giving you the freedom to enjoy Internet anywhere uninterruptedly in large areas such as homes, hotels or small offices without worrying about coverage limits.

    Wireless N - Speed & Range
    Adopting IEEE 802.11n advanced MIMO (Multi Input Multi Output) technology, TL-WA830RE simultaneously works through two antennas to Tx and Rx to overcome the interference and signal degradation when traveling long distances or through physical barriers in a small office or a large apartment, resulting in an incredible improvement in the wireless performance, even in a steel-and-concrete building. Above all, you could easily pick up the wireless network during long-distance connection where legacy 11g products may not!

    Incredible Wireless Extension
    TL-WA830RE is designed to select Range Extender as the default wireless mode, working as a relay station to repeat the wireless signal flawlessly to longer distance where is previously outside the coverage of the existing wireless network. Due to leading Wireless N technologies, it can overcome obstacles and enhance overall network signal quality, then providing the same reliable network connecting as wired network. Better still, TL-WA830RE can also work in the conventional AP mode, accessing the Internet via ADSL/Cable modem and linking the wireless and wired network together.

    One Button for Connection
    TL-WA830RE features Range Extender Button that allows users to setup the wireless connection with both unsecured and secure network simply by pressing the "Range Extender" button for about 5 seconds. Especially when connecting to the unsecured network, the whole connection process seems to be a snap for any users in that all you need is just a push of a button and a few seconds waiting without any extra operation at all!

    Full Compatible with 802.11b/g/n Devices
    TP-LINK Wireless N Range Extender TL-WA830RE is fully compatible with all IEEE 802.11b/g/n devices, including routers, gateways, access points and adapters. Specifically, it can not only maximize performance with 802.11n products, but also achieve full capacity when linking with 802.11b/g products. Therefore you can make full use of all your existing wireless devices without any replacement cost, and even upgrade your wireless network off to Wireless N age.

    WPA / WPA2 Encryptions - Advanced Security
    As for the security of Wi-Fi connection, WEP encryption has been no longer the strongest and safest guards for outside threats. TL-WA830RE provides WPA/WPA2 encryptions (Both Personal and Enterprises) that are created by the Wi-Fi Alliance industry group, preventing the wireless network from outside threats.

    Easy Setup
    Apart from the Range Extender button, the device also comes with an Easy Setup Assistant in the resource CD that leads you through the setup process step-by-step, and even helps with wireless network settings and security configurations, which is convenient to the users, especially for novice users.

    Western, South Africa. 21 May 2014

    Good device. Very easy to set up with greater than expected range.

    Nico, South Africa. 4 June 2014

    Works great, good range and easy to setup!

    Doron, South Africa. 6 June 2014

    Easy to install...just the push of a button. And works perfectly.

    Jonathan, South Africa. 19 June 2014

    Great Product, works a treat!
    Had a bit of a fiddly time getting it working as I had to set the IP range of both my router and the extender to be the same but otherwise all good.

    Lidia, South Africa. 25 June 2014

    Easy set up and it works perfectly

    Yusuf, South Africa. 27 June 2014

    Great product, Setup Quickly via WPS.

    Heinrich, South Africa. 10 July 2014

    Easy setup, and worked nicely for a while. But starts pulsing strength signal after a while. Don't know if the walls might be causing this, but my Apple tv also can't stream as it usually did straight from the router.

    So in my instance did not solve my issue with weak signal in bedroom.

    Ali, South Africa. 14 July 2014

    Worked like a charm straight out the box. A very good buy.

    Jason, South Africa. 25 July 2014

    Great product! So easy to setup and well worth it.

    Tim, South Africa. 29 July 2014

    did the job - extended wifi coverage, and it was easy to install for non-technical people. Recommended

    Selwyn, South Africa. 30 July 2014

    THE PRODUCT HAS PROVED TO BE USEFUL AND HAS ACHIEVED THE OBJECTIVE,I REQUIRED FROM IT.

    Anton, South Africa. 6 August 2014

    Regularly drops the network signal

    Jarco, South Africa. 6 August 2014

    The Range extender exceeded my expectations and I am totally satisfied with the performance, will recommend this to everyone I know

    David, South Africa. 8 August 2014

    So far so good. Works perfectly. Easy set up.

    David, South Africa. 3 September 2014

    Products works well and was easy to install. Very happy.

    Manie, South Africa. 4 September 2014

    Easy installation, works well

    Karl, South Africa. 8 September 2014

    Works, easy setup.

    Chris, South Africa. 8 September 2014

    Works 100%. Very easy to set up, I had it working in 10 mins. It has a much better range than the spec allows, so I would recommend it to anyone who might contemplate to buy it

    Patrick, South Africa. 10 September 2014

    Easy to set up, works well and is quite small so not an ugly device in your wall.

    Lmo, South Africa. 12 September 2014

    This product does not provide stable connectivity with DSL router, poor down and uplink stability. I would not recommend this product.

    Irshaad, South Africa. 22 September 2014

    plug n play! works great with my d-link router. all devices connected immediately, except one, which needed a restart and then worked fine. struggled a bit with setup, but thats because routers wps was turned off..

    Tyrone, South Africa. 17 October 2014

    Terrible product, keeps dropping signal only works again after a restart.

    Louis, South Africa. 24 October 2014

    Excellent product. Easy to setup and works 100%.

    Patrick, South Africa. 3 November 2014

    It does what is says on the tin and is very easy to setup.

    Alan, South Africa. 6 November 2014

    Great product at this price, does however slow down the connection speed considerably if you are connected to the extender. This is normal with repeaters though. Great service from Takealot.

    Norman, South Africa. 8 November 2014

    Setup was very simple and works very well. Would definitely recommend and buy again if given the option.

    Durand, South Africa. 15 November 2014

    Excellent. Been working for a month or more. No problems. Really really boosts the signal. I want more.

    Allen, South Africa. 17 November 2014

    VERY easy to set up to either have the same SSID as router or a different one. Excellent signal strength

    Hume, South Africa. 18 November 2014

    Does what it's suppose to do! Got it working in seconds.

    Gerhard, South Africa. 19 November 2014

    Excellent product - performance in line with specification. Takealot.com service exceeds expectation, as usual!

    Mark, South Africa. 19 November 2014

    The device is easy to plug in and set up and makes a significant difference to the wireless signal in my house. I placed it in my upstairs bedroom (modem is downstairs) and it works well. Only downside is that the blue lights on the extender are very bright at night so I covered them with some tape!

    Amit, South Africa. 20 November 2014

    Great product. Reasonable Price. Set up and paired with my Netgear Router within 5 minutes, and plugged into Wall Socket. Extended the range to one floor above. Getting full wifi signal upstairs now.

    Andre, South Africa. 21 November 2014

    Decent price. Great product

    Sean, South Africa. 21 November 2014

    Good product. Easy to set up.

    Mark, South Africa. 27 November 2014

    Very good product this from TP-Link. easy to setup and does what it supposed to do very well.
    My house has very thick brick walls, so my wifi signal was very weak on the other side of the house.
    This range extender has done the trick by putting it half way and now I even have wifi outside in the garden :)

    Linoshin, South Africa. 27 November 2014

    Easy to setup, boosted my blind spot from 0-1 bar to full 3 bar signal. Very happy with price and product.

    Hugh, South Africa. 17 December 2014

    Not straight forward to set up, took many attempts but it does extend the Wifi area in my double storey house.

    Bruce, South Africa. 22 December 2014

    Very straightforward to set up, and combines well with my TP-Link ADSL router to extend my home Wifi coverage

    Darshik, South Africa. 22 December 2014

    Product: Great build quality, 2minutes to setup. I've used TPLink before so I am familiar with the web access interface. No wired connection required and can be setup initially over Wi-Fi which is great. Works incredibly well and my whole home is Wi-Fi'd now!

    Greg, South Africa. 26 December 2014

    Good coverage of your current and existing WLAN network. Just a bit tricky to setup if you are going to use the setup product CD. But if you know how to set up using the web interface then that is a better choice provided you knowledge of network setup is ok.

    Yuvaan, South Africa. 27 December 2014

    Took less than 5 min to setup and works better than I thought in an area where I assumed the signal would be too weak.

    Gerhard, South Africa. 30 December 2014

    Not really working easy as it should

    Ben, South Africa. 15 January 2015

    very nice product

    Shaun, South Africa. 19 January 2015

    The problem is that my router doesn't have WPS button and setting it up via the Internet seems like quite a schlep. Once I have accomplished this I will review again.

    The online advert should have made it clear that the router should have a WPS button.

    Stephan, South Africa. 20 January 2015

    Does what it says on the box. 100% reliable so far.

    Ahmed, South Africa. 21 January 2015

    Excellent product, works perfectly and takes under a minute to setup

    Brian, South Africa. 22 January 2015

    Excellent product. WSP did not connect but a quick log in with my cell set it up and works perfectly.

    Nikki, South Africa. 22 January 2015

    Easy to set up and does what's advertised. I'm happy!

    Nico, South Africa. 26 January 2015

    Convenient transformer placement feels like plug and play 5 stars

    danie, South Africa. 27 January 2015

    very easy once I put in correct router id! Seems to work well

    Mohamed A, South Africa. 5 February 2015

    Very easy to set-up and works well.

    Roshan, South Africa. 6 February 2015

    Awesome product and great service

    Jonathan P, South Africa. 9 February 2015

    Does as advertised.
    And you get what you pay for... nothing wrong with it, just not as good as some other products which are more expensive.

    But I am happy with it, it does what I need it to do, and I can attach a non wireless device to it too - bonus.

    Frans, South Africa. 12 February 2015

    Worked like a charm straight out the box. A very good buy.

    Jimmy, South Africa. 17 February 2015

    I have used a few different range extenders in the past but this one beats them all hands down. Setup is easy and quick, the coverage is outstanding, I am so impressed I have ordered another 6 already. Well done TP-Link

    Euan, South Africa. 8 March 2015

    Don't try use it to connect more than 3 devices or do streaming through it, it keeps losing connection to Router but still says its connected

    Shira, South Africa. 9 March 2015

    works well

    Andrew, South Africa. 9 March 2015

    Easy to install, up and running in 5 minutes. Does what I bought it for. The blue lights on the front are bright so bear this in mind with placement as some may be disturbed by the blue glow if its in a dark bedroom!

    Andre, South Africa. 9 March 2015

    Good Product

    Hitesh, South Africa. 16 March 2015

    The product is easy to set up using the instruction booklet.
    In order to get a strong signal to the other end of my house I had move the TP Link to several locations before I got it right.

    Neels, South Africa. 15 April 2015

    Awesome Product works out of the box!

    Warren Hen-Boisen, South Africa. 26 April 2015

    Money worth spent, its really awesome tech. LG 3D TV owners tip, this allows you to manually select 3D split screen vertically/Horizontally. Plays, MKV's with no hassle, even when fast forwarding. Awesome

    Seamus, South Africa. 29 April 2015

    1, 2, 3... wait... that's it...? WOW!!! Amazing product!

    Caitlyn, South Africa. 1 June 2015

    Works excellently. Incredibly easy to set up - you literally just plug it in, press a button on your router and another on the extender and let it connect. Then you can move it to any plug to extend your wifi. Ours is perfectly located now to provide wifi to the other side of the house.

    Richard, South Africa. 20 May 2016

    This Extender is bang for your buck! Easy to setup and extremely powerful Wifi extending capabilities. A must for every home or office that needs strong extending in hard to reach places.

    Chris, South Africa. 15 June 2016

    It does the job really well, recommend it!!

    Roald, South Africa. 21 June 2016

    It works like a charm. Easy to set up and the range is excellent!!! If your modem does not have a WPS button the web interface is very easy to access and is easy to set up.

    Nkateko, South Africa. 25 October 2016

    It works wonders set up is easy and sport on.

    Benjamin, South Africa. 18 November 2015

    Decent signal strength coupled with an easy setup makes this an acceptable purchase for a quick way to extend your wireless network with little stress.

    Okay, but certainly not great., South Africa. 11 February 2016

    Setup is easy, range is good however the speed is often less than half of what I get on the main router, and the connection is regularly dropped. Personally, I would look elsewhere.

    Lee, South Africa. 22 February 2016

    Device is easy to setup via WPS or Setup wizard which is more secure.

    Lance, South Africa. 22 March 2016

    Never worked very well. Ended up getting a Netgear WN2000RPT which is MUCH better.

    Vimal, South Africa. 15 April 2016

    Fast to setup. Works well. Live in double storey.

    Eugene, South Africa. 2 May 2016

    Easy Setup and good range

    Karlien, South Africa. 7 July 2016

    Great product but even greater service.

    Tumelo, South Africa. 19 July 2016

    It's a good product. Easy to setup and begin using.

    brilliant!, South Africa. 3 September 2016

    just an awesome product

    Brandon, South Africa. 11 October 2016

    Very easy to use. Works well. Been using it for 3 weeks now. There is no 3rd party firmware (openWRT) available as it is hardware v3.

    Leander, South Africa. 4 November 2016

    Great product
