TP-LINK's TL-WA750RE is designed to conveniently extend the coverage and improve the signal strength of an existing wireless network to eliminate "dead zones". With 150Mbps wireless N speeds, Range Extender button, miniature size and wall-mounted design, extending a wireless network has never been easier. What's more, its Ethernet port allows the TL-WA750RE to act as a wireless adapter to turn a wired device into a wireless one.

The TL-WA750RE is designed to conveniently extend the coverage and improve the signal strength of an existing wireless network to eliminate "dead zones", help users maintain an existing wireless network and vastly improve the network's coverage. With 150Mbps wireless 802.11n speeds, it is ideal for smooth HD video, music streaming and online gaming.

Flexible Deployment
The device's miniature size and wall-mounted design make it easy to deploy and move flexibly. What's more, the TL-WA750RE's profile function remembers previously paired wireless networks, meaning there is no need to reset the device when changing the paired router.

Plug and Play
With no new wires or cables, within range of their existing wireless network, users can easily extend wireless coverage at a push of the WPS button on their router followed by the Range Extender button on the TL-WA750RE or vice versa. An additional push of the pair button can quickly establish an encrypted connection with client devices.

Ethernet Bridge
The TL-WA750RE's single Ethernet port allows the Extender to function as a wireless adapter to connect wired devices like Blu-ray® players, gaming consoles, DVRs and Internet TVs. At the same time, the device can share the wireless network as well.

Smart Signal Indicator Light
5 signal lights represent the current signal strength that TL-WA750RE receives from existing router, which can help to find the right location to place the range extender so that the TL-WA750RE can achieve the best possible range and performance of the network.

Universal Compatibility
Works seamlessly with all 802.11 b/g/n wireless devices. It is also compatible with the latest Windows 8 operating system.

4* Good for the money and works well
Reviewed by Anonymous on 25/03/2014
I have three of these installed & recommended to friends; we all give the thumbs up, especially @£17 (review time).

One is plugged in and connected to the TV via a cable. I use 'on demand' services, without any real issues. Occasionally there is a little streaming lag and stutter, but I bear in mind that this is only 150Mbps and therefore doesn't work as fast as the 300Mbps units.

I don't agree with the previous reviewer though:
1. The main point is to extend your wifi past its current range, not just to boost the strength at its plugin location. E.G I now use my laptop at the end of the garden (10m past existing range), whereas before the wifi only reached the back door and no signal was picked up outside.
2. Not an issue with any of the units I have. One of which I unplug regular to do the ironing, when I switch it back on, 2-3 mins later its connected again.

Overall, recommended for anyone looking for a cheap way to extend their wifi or connect wired devices to wifi (i.e Desktop)
1* Slow speed, gives half or less Mbps
Reviewed by Anonymous on 11/01/2016
This extender appears to work with half duplex, which is not mentioned anywhere in the description. So it can only give half or less Mbps than what your router/hub is running at.
1* Absolutely dire
Reviewed by NIgel Brooks on 25/02/2015
Incredibly easy to set up ad then the 'fun' begins.

Initially it finds your Home Hub but whatever you do, don't shut doen your wireless device(e.g. close the lid on your laptop). You then need to reboot the range extender and go through the process of re-entering your wirless key and then, if you are lucky, you will be able to get a broadband connection (sometimes it simply does not work at all).

As I write this it is re-boxed and will be returned for a refund tomorrow.

Don't waste you money, pay peanuts, get this 'monkey'.
1* Did not work
Reviewed by Anonymous on 13/05/2014
Purchased this to improve signal in other parts of the house. I had problems from tha start when it would not allow our iPads to receive any internet connection. Frequent dialogue with TP-Link Help Desk, I returned it 3 weeks ago and am still waiting for the refund. The email address they still provide does not work. BT Shop needs to get a grip of these important details...quickly.!
