What This Product Does
TP-LINK’s TL-WPA4220 extends your Internet connection to every room of the house through your home’s existing electrical circuitry. The TL-WPA4220 features a Wi-Fi Clone Button enabling Super Range Extension, which means it can automatically copy the SSID and Password of your router. In this way, TL-WPA4220 simplifies your Wi-Fi configuration and allows for seamless roaming within your home network.

Imagine this, your router is on the first floor, while your smart TV is upstairs, or maybe a game console in the bedroom and you prefer a wired connection so it needs it to be stable and achieve great speed to obtain your 4K streaming on effective online game play. Generally, you might contemplate on drilling a hole in the ceiling and running dozens of yards of Ethernet cable through the walls and finally to the destination, which makes your home messy and untidy.

Simply plug one unit by your Router downstairs and connect to the router via the Ethernet cable provided, and place your other adapter in the location you need to get the internet to around the home and connect to your wired internet devices via the Ethernet Port located at the top of each the adapter. Using your exiting electrical circuit, the powerline adapters transport your Internet with speeds of up of up to 600Mbps from your router to the other adapter destination without losing any connectivity speed or performance.

One Touch Super Range Extension
With a Wi-Fi Clone Button enabling Super Range Extension, the TL-WPA4220 can automatically copy the wireless network name (SSID) and Password of your router at the push of a button. After the pressing the button, you can place the powerline adapter anywhere you want wired or wireless access and enjoy seamless networking across your entire home or office.

With advanced HomePlug AV technology, TL-WPA4220 provides you with stable, high-speed data transfer rates of up to 600Mbps on a line length of up to 300 meters. It is a great choice for a whole home solution to connect all network compatible devices--from computers, game consoles to set-top boxes for IPTV to printers and NAS hard drives.

Extend WiFi Coverage to Every Room
With wireless speeds of up to 300Mbps, you can effortlessly extend your WiFi network via the existing powerline and broadcast a wireless signal to share with all your WiFi enabled devices in another area of your home or office.

Plug and Play
You can set up a hassle-free Powerline network within minutes with TP-LINK’s powerline adapters, just plug in and play. Also, the adapters’ "Pair" buttons can be utilised for securing or managing multiple powerline adapters in your home powerline network.
• Plug one Internet connected adapter into a nearby power outlet
• Connect additional adapters to PCs/laptops/Internet TVs or other networked devices via an Ethernet cable or Wi-Fi - and you're done!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what is says on the pack Bought this last week and am very VERY pleased. We'd had problems from our puny, Virgin Wifi in getting a signal out in the garden and in one of the bedrooms. This gadget sorted it out. Very clear instructions and even I managed without swearing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Maplin had the best price. My wi-fi isn't brilliant and to solve the problem I purchased the TP-LINK TL-WPA4220KIT AV500 Wireless Powerline Adapter Kit - Twin Pack to provide both a better performance in one of the rooms where the desk top was situated. This item was another extender. The set up avoids have to install a wired extension and provide both an ethernet and an improved wi-fi conection. Maplins was the cheapest I could find.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as well as I had hoped it would. Cheapest price available, bought this to work with an existing AV500 set-up. Followed the instructions and was then up and running in minutes. If only everything else was this simple.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works a treat - located in the summer house in the garden about 100 feet from the router. Hardly any setting up as this was an extra to the one in the house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Do as it says. I had a wifi extender and still had wifi drops, seems powerline works better and reliability than wifi extender.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Powerline Extender We needed to extend the range of our router in the office (3 storey, 3 phase building) and having acquired the WPA 4220 Kit about 11 months earlier for UK use, it seemed the logical option to purchase two additional AV600 extenders (the price made for an easy decision). After initial complications with getting the extenders to communicate (initially thought it was because wall sockets on each floor were on different phases-turns out it might be a frequency issue due to the unstable nature of power supply but still investigating), I found out that they communicate quite effectively on a 3 phase electricity network without any additional works or connections necessary (seems I just needed to be more patient). The design is very user friendly, that is to say (as I am so easily pleased by little things), it is so easy to get feedback from the devices if they are communicating or not. Once you plug the device into the wall socket and switch it on, the Powerline network LED comes on if it finds/connects to other Powerline devices on the electrical network. So no running from socket to computer or carrying your laptop around to check the utility to see if a device is visible (you'd appreciate this if you had to run up and down three floors without or without laptop in tow). Signal strengths and data transmissions (over Wifi-I'm not currently use Ethernet connections) are very stable, meaning all computers and devices on all floors have excellent internet access at decent speeds of between 100 and 250 Mbps so far (more to do with the quality of the internet service and wiring workmanship/materials otherwise I anticipate better). I should mention though that I found that TP-Link Network Interface Cards (NICs) performed better in terms of signal acquisition/strength than none Tp-Link NICs which none the less were able to connect with decent signal strengths (and no I honestly don't work for or am I trying to promote TP-Link products. Some of our computers were recently upgraded with new TP-Link Wireless NICs and some with none Tp-Link NICs, so this made for an excellent opportunity for unplanned [I just wanted our Wifi range extended] comparison). The devices are very easy to setup - just plug into a wall socket, pair the extenders with the Primary Adaptor (attached to router/modem via Ethernet cable) and if needed clone Wifi configurations so all extenders are broadcasting the same network details - at the press of a button (or two - pairing and cloning are two different buttons) and you're pretty much ready to go. Expansion by pairing additional extenders to the group is also extremely easy. Advanced configurations/personalisation (e.g. setting up the extenders to broadcast as different network IDs...) will require some patience and technical knowledge, though the provided user manual (downloadable online as well as provided in the kits disc) is quite comprehensive and relatively easy to follow. The only challenges I faced (and quickly resolved) were setting up the devices to recognise each other via the web interface (I had something of a confusing time with the individual device passwords-not the network password mind you), getting the devices to communicate on a 3 phase electricity network (not the devices' fault and turned out not to really be an issue), the firmware update/upgrade process (after some careful reading and understanding of the firmware files needed it was a "how didn't I get this before" synch and TP-link seem to have streamlined the firmware files to just one instead of two so happier days) and that TP-Link devices don't have Nigeria has a selectable region in the web interface (not much I can do about that but so far hasn't proven to be a problem). All in all, I would have to say (especially considering quality of internet service, electrical wiring workmanship/materials, topology and power supply in the environment of use), the TP-Link AV500/600 Powerline Adaptors/Range Extenders are excellent value for money. I'm quite the happy camper. Tried and tested in a developing but truly network challenging environment.

Will the WPA4220 work as an additional booster with my existing TL-WPA281 range extender? If not, please can you recommend a more suitable product? thanks

Asked by: Sarah
Further questions: a) I need 2 booster points the product that you have recommended only has 1 booster and 1 base unit. Do you sell kits with 1 base and 2 boosters? b) we only have 2MBps broadband speed. Will the 200MBps "throttling" that you mention make any difference? thanks

I need to extend the range of my BT broadband supply over 3 floors (modem downstairs). Will this do it, or what kit do I need? Do I need one on each floor, so 3 plug-ins altogether?

Asked by: John
Providing each floor is on the same mains circuit you could use a powerline wifi triple kit;

hi, I have a tp link wifi av500 kit. One hard wired into the virgin media router and the other at the back of the house. It works fine but I want to extend to a garden building with its own electricity feed, will this work to get better signal down there?

Asked by: lee b
No, this would not be suitable as powerline adapters require to be on the same mains circuit.
