Product Details

TP-Link 300Mbps Universal WiFi Range Extender, Model TL-WA850RE

What This Product Does
TP-LINK's TL-WA850RE is designed to conveniently extend the coverage and improve the signal strength of an existing wireless network to eliminate "dead zones". With 300Mbps wireless N speeds, Range Extender button, miniature size and wall mounting design, extending a wireless network has never been easier. What's more, its Ethernet port allows the TL-WA850RE to act as a wireless adapter to turn a wired device into a wireless one.

300Mbps Range Extender
The TL-WA850RE 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 300Mbps 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-WA850RE'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-WA850RE or vice versa. An additional push of the pair button can quickly establish an encrypted connection with client devices.

Ethernet Bridge
The TL-WA850RE'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-WA850RE receives from existing router, which can help to find the right location to place the range extender so that the TL-WA850RE 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.

The WA850 is a small size, 4.3 x 2.6 x 3.0 inches, light weight at 3.5 ounces, and works universally with all routers 802.11b,g,n. It is wall-mounted, plugging into any electrical outlet, even 2-prong receptacles found in older homes. When it's in a top outlet, the bottom one is entirely free for other use. The design makes the WA850 easy to deploy and move about. This is a review of a free demo unit received from TP-LINK, for testing and feedback, as part of their review program. Submitted as part of a free sample program.

On my Windows-10 ThinkPad laptop, the WA850RE was benchmarked as a Range Extender using the Edge browser and the OOKLA speedtest website. Download speed was 45Mbps, Upload 23Mbps. On an Android tablet, OOKLA speed tested at Download 29Mbps, Upload 15Mbps.

The WA850 is flexible and versatile. In addition to being a Range Extender, it can also be used as an Ethernet Entertainment Adapter (a wireless network adapter for devices requiring an Ethernet connection) or an Access Point (transforming an existing wired network into a wireless one).

The WA850 has two Range Extender setup options. There is the easy two push button WPS setup. If your router has a WPS button, press it and then press the front button on the WA850. The second method is an intuitive browser web-based advanced setup. If you do the WPS setup, a browser can be used to fine-tune configuration settings.

The WA850 is compatible with TP-Link's free Tether app for phones and tablets. Tether is available free for both Android and Apple iOS. It's installed on all my Android phones and tablets. I use Tether to control my Archer C5400 Router, RE850D, and WA850. Tether displays detailed information about the WA850. There is a Network Map, Info on devices connected, Connection and Network status. There are additional screens for Quick Setup, configuring the Extended Network, Share Password, LED On/Off, Block Clients, changing Date & Time, Change Password, Reboot, and Factory Defaults.

Lost connectivity after changing WI-FI password

By 

from India

It lost connectivity after changing Wi-Fi password. There is no impact on changing a router password, but when you change wi-fi password the extender lost the connectivity to router. You have to reconfigure your extender if you change your wi-fi password. The password change info should be updated automatically in extender as well.

It works fine until u change password of your router. Whenever I change my router's password it lost connectivity to router. Password changed info should be updated automatically in the device too. I have to reconfigured every time after changing password.

Tiny and potent

By 

from Orange County, CA

Greetings, I've had the pleasure of testing a TP-LINK, TL-WA850RE 300Mbps Universal Wi-Fi Range Extender. I conducted my test after disabling my other extenders, so I can obtain an accurate WiFi reading. I was able to experience significant signal increases in my dead zones, I had before. I've had this device plugged in since the start of my testing, December 2016. The device has not failed once, working perfectly. The device is plugged in my home office and all led lights are fully lit indicating a strong signal, about 40 ft from my router. I conducted another test by using the extender as a network adapter and it worked perfectly. I connected my printer and connected the network, and viola, it prints.I would like to see a possible feature added, a USB port to provide more options and expand to a 5 GHz network. This is inexpensive and great to add to one's arsenal of network devices. This review was submitted as part of a free sample program.
