An AC pass-through is located on the front of the range extender to ensure that you are not short of plug sockets.

This wireless range extender operates on a 2.4Ghz frequency, making it able to handle 300Mbps wireless signals.

The range extender can be positioned wherever there is a mains socket in your home, and can be moved as needed.

TP-link tether is a free application that is included with the TP-Link 300Mbps universal range extender. It allows you to monitor and manage your wireless connection from a portable device.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant I bought this to extend my wifi from the house out across the patio & garden. Plugged it it half way between the main router & end of garden. Went on to the webpage, logged in, selected the wifi signal I wanted to extend, added the same password, changed the admin password and saved. 5 mins later, walked to the end of the garden, full strength signal on phones / ipads etc. Brilliant, simple to set up, and just works.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well so far Bought to boost wi-fi signal mainly for Amazon Fire TV stick which had buffering issues with certain apps. Connection to my existing access point was very easy with push button connectivity. Signal strength on my Edimax wireless utility shows the original access point anywhere between 40-60%, the extender has increased that to 100%. Kindle Fire also shows a boost in signal strength and the Fire stick is no longer buffering (specifically on the MUBI app). The extender is around 10m from the access point in a separate room with two doors inbetween. NB!! Despite sharing the same SSID and password as the original access point the extender appears as a separate device in the wireless utility (identifiable by its superior signal strength). None of my devices (PC, Kindle Fire etc) connected automatically to the extender unless restarted once the extender was broadcasting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from wonderful product this is above the expectations. I was worried if I would get another wifi provider and have to switch but I was amazed to find it has magically boosted signal of existing router. Also coverage area is very good. I can now browse in garage which is other side of 50feet garden. Both floors are at minimum 80% signals

How far will this range extender as would it work in my Garge which not linked to my house but the electrics are 

Asked by: Darren
This is not a powerline extender, the connection of the electrics to the house makes no difference to it's mode of operation. It's impossible to predict how far it will extend your range as it depends on many factors such as the construction and materials of the buildings and walls it has to pass through.
