Lawrence, South Africa. 20 November 2014

great product - easy to setup

Sean, South Africa. 18 April 2016

Great extender, only down side is the SSID clone function, didn't work for me, had to do it manually.
Great value for money.

Lindsay, South Africa. 12 December 2016

Even easier than advertised, I was very surprised. Took longer to remove it from the packaging.
Added into the existing power line setup and WiFi clone worked to extended coverage nicely.
Note: you need an existing powerline setup or buy the kit version.

Simon, South Africa. 21 January 2015

Easy to setup and the range is excellent. It gets a bit warm (not hot) but that is expected.

Be aware the Wireless hand-off is client dependant and is not enforced by this device.

Kim, South Africa. 3 July 2015

I am impressed by this product but totally confused as to whether or not it needs another component. And it doesn't explain itself in the manual.

Colin, South Africa. 6 May 2016

Great product. (remember its an add-on for existing powerline kit.)

Stefan, South Africa. 12 April 2016

This is realy an extender and not a repeater. You need to buy a starter kit before you buy this extender. Even after the starter kit, it is not as easy as pairing the wifi signal. At least there is a support number on the box.

Kyle, South Africa. 1 April 2015

Very simple installation. Works like a charm. WiFi extended across the entire house with just 1 unit with no interruptions.

Rockwell, South Africa. 9 December 2016

Loving it so far

Kevin, South Africa. 12 November 2014

Product was easy to install. Works excelently! Brilliant product.

hannes, South Africa. 7 November 2016

I bought mine less than 4 months ago and need to replace it.

Martin, South Africa. 19 February 2016

Works like a charm. Just be careful of using with extension cables and adapters.

Anton, South Africa. 25 February 2016

Awesome new technology. Plug and play.

Chris, South Africa. 21 March 2016

It works exactly like they say it does. If you need to extend your WiFi network, this will do the job. It is very easy to set up.

Don, South Africa. 26 May 2015

What this product doesn't tell you is that you HAVE to already have the powerline adapter. If you don't, this product will not work.

Llewellyn, South Africa. 6 December 2016

Fantastic product, easy to setup, works really well.

Sam , South Africa. 7 November 2016

Be Careful when buying this product! It is not the only component that you need. It is only half of the system - an extension pack. Make sure that you buy the kit first.

Once you have the right pieces it works amazingly well. Absolutely flawless.

Frederick Johannes, South Africa. 20 December 2016

Great product, setup in 10 min. Works prefect!

dylan, South Africa. 14 May 2015

Really disappointed, doesn't do what it says on the box, does not clone my current wifi and when i try use the wifi it does send out that o has no internet connection, don't hold your breath trying to get any support from TP-Link directly as they don't do that. i see other people have had good reviews but it doesn't work in my house

Mark, South Africa. 14 November 2016

A fantastic solution for wifi extending, without loss of signal. Such a clever idea to channel the signal through your existing power cables to wherever you need it. Ive even used it to boost a guest network by programing username and password in the extender via ethernet. Great Product.

Martina, South Africa. 17 March 2015

Very good product to extend your wifi to every corner of the house.

Neil, South Africa. 26 September 2014

Simple to install and works well. I now have full wifi in a distant part of my house without additional wiring.

Samuel, South Africa. 10 September 2014

Works well. Easy to setup. Picks up the other TP-link devices easily. The 2 rj45 ports are convenient.

Wade, South Africa. 30 October 2014

Did have to change the settings to match my router, once done worked perfectly, exactly as it said it would!

Brian, South Africa. 4 June 2015

Brilliant product. covers entire house using the powerline.

Raphael, South Africa. 18 May 2016

The product is not working. I bought it to boost my wifi signal at home but when the product is on it makes the signal worse. I'm very disappointed, especially since it was very expensive.

Warren, South Africa. 11 January 2017

Delivered quicker than expected. Works as intended. Very easy to install out the box. Plug and play, but allows for more advanced configs if you wish. I purchased this as an add on to my already extended network to work in conjunction with the tp-link starter kit. So i have 2 of these same units and both work flawlessly. Streams hd content wirelessly with no problems. I especially like how quick it boots.the ethernet ports are handy as well if you positioned close to your tv for instance. Only draw back is that it does not support dual band, but for most people that won't be an issue. Worth the money.

Andrew, South Africa. 20 May 2015

Fantastic service & product

Danie, South Africa. 29 October 2015

Together with the AV500-Nano-Powerline-adapter/PLID28719911, I don't get the advertised distance or cover for Wi-Fi. Definitely not the max of 300mas advertised, it might be 3-5m, and the 2 units Wi-Fi transmissions interfere with one another.

David, South Africa. 21 May 2016

A great product - easy to use (find and watch Youtube video) and effective even in my house which has difficult areas for wifi coverage

Garfield, South Africa. 25 August 2016

Great product, never ever thought you could use your electrical circuitry to boost your wireless capability.
