    Easy to set up, change SSID, change admin password, change WiFi password, change wireless encryption to WPA2-PSK (AES), and away you go.

    Recommended and hassle free way to set up secure guest network. Just plug it in when they come and unplug it when they go. Further when on holiday just plug it into holiday home’s router and you’re all set up.

    It’s quite difficult in this day and age to get a simple wifi access point for an existing Wired Network.

    Everything seems to be geared up for mesh wifi or wireless repeaters – which essentially detect an existing wifi signal from your router and then just pass it on so to speak.. the problem with these for the most part is that your data throughput will only be as good as the weakest link and that’s usually the signal from your router to your repeater – and you’ve probably got a repeater becasue your wifi is performing poorly – so it’s almost a catch 22 situation.

    And then there is the other problem – not all houses are modern in this country with timber framed rooms and the only thing the signal has to get through is plasterboard and insulation. My house is an old one. It has old style coal dust plaster on it’s walls. This is like a massive carbon shield to a wifi signal! – At most I can only get a signal partly into the next room as a result. Getting through the floor is generally…

    For any non-trivial use, this device simply breaks things. It will arbitrarily turn on its own DHCP server, even if it hasn’t been configured with vital details such as the network’s default gateway (and seems to disable its DHCP client in these cases, so doesn’t use the value provided by the *actual* DHCP server).

    Stranger still, it keeps impersonating other devices on the network by replying to DHCP/ARP packets with devices’ hostnames, but a seemingly random MAC address which starts with TP-Link’s OUI.

    Some form of attack? A bug in the firmware? Some odd power-saving feature where the AP replies to network packets so that the downstream devices don’t have to (a-la Apple’s Time Capsule devices… but less well)?

    Who knows, but it’s broken my network three times now so it’s going in the bin.

    At least it came with a PoE injector.

    Used this in satellite mode for an ageing desktop without a Wi-fi card.

    The connection was very slow and often dropped out.

    I had 100 kbps Wi-fi on my iPad and mobile next to it, the devise itself often had single figures.

    Returned as not fit for purpose.

    I bought this wireless AP to provide coverage in a blank spot in the house. The Access Point was connected to my router via an ethernet connection. I chose TP ink because I have used their Powerline adaptors and switches before without problem. On the plus side – it looks good and was easy to set up. HOWEVER, the unit kept powering itself down and then got to the stage where it would not start at all. I tried a factory reset and it would not even boot up properly after that – so basically useless. When it was working I did notice that the speed it was offering was about half of that of my BT Smart Hub WiFi – I also have a Netgear AP in another part of the house which was delivering a very good speed. I have since bought a Wavlink AC1200 which is working very well providing good coverage and high speed. My advice is avoid this TP Link product

    I have used Tp-link quite a lot and been happy with their kit – until now. I found that this access point locked up completely after a couple of days. Rebooted and it did the same thing so I sent it back for replacement. The replacement though exhibited the same behaviour. Absolutely nothgin functions once it locks up, it impossible to log in to it or even do a factory reset. So I tried TP-link’s technical support and after about an hour of head scratching he said turn it off and turn it on again. Useless! And no hint of what the real problem might be. This is not leading edge technology – it should work reliably straight out of the box. I’ve sent the replacement back and I’ll think twice before buying TP-link again.

    Although this has a wireless speed of 450Mb, the Ethernet port speed is only 100Mb. So if you are plugging this into your nice speedy wired network as an additional access point, the best internet speed you will get is 100Mb, not 450!
    My home network on Virgin connects to the internet at 350Mb, but when I connect through this the best internet speed I can get is just shy of 100Mb.
    This is an odd situation. It’s still providing a boost to my previously very week internet speed at the end of the garden (which is why I got it) but the fact that it’s limited to 100Mb is a bit of a disappointment. However it is very cheap. You’d need to spend more to get an access point with a faster (e.g. gigabit) Ethernet port.
