OK by extender standards

Using at the lake to stretch wifi from one cabin to the rest of the property, pain is you have to first be in range of original, enter pswd there, the go back to where you were and enter same password again int extender wifi, and the next morning it was not connected to internet, so it seems to need to be woken up each morning.. decent range and setup but nothing to write home about...

Good at first, now won't stay connected

This worked well at first but after about a month it lost internet connection and despite multiple resets and reconfiguration, it won't stay connected for more than a couple of minutes and it's range has collapsed to just a few feet. Obviously defective. Will return and get a different brand.

pretty good range, good 5GHz throughput, bad 2.4GHz throughput, laughable firmware

The RE350K is a mixed bag, that you have to fiddle around to figure out how to get to work satisfactorily because of some manufactuer's quirks. Because of that, if you are novice user, this product is not recommended.. First off, don't get this product if you are trying to extend the coverage of a router with only 2.4GHz, and if you have an internet connection of more than 25Mbps. When connected to this RE350K repeater, you will not get more than about 25Mbps no matter what if you are connected to your main router at 2.4GHz. How do I know this? I have a 50Mbps home internet connection, and the speeds cap out at about 25Mbps when using the extender. If you disable the 2.4GHz uplink, and only tell your extender to use a 5GHz uplink, the speed issue vanishes. There's something really "off" about the 2.4GHz when you use it for the uplink, even though the 2.4GHz works just fine if you use it as downlink only. I know that available bandwidth is cut in half when you use a repeater, but that's not what's causing the reduced internet speeds as the maximum speeds of 20MHz 2.GHz should surely be better. A 25Mbps real world max throughput on 2.4GHz isn't acceptable, for any router, for any repeater. Okay, so you say just use the 5GHz, frequency only to connect to the main router (uplink), correct? That does solve the throughput issue on the 2.4GHz band to get my full internet speeds of 50Mbps. However, there is a software problem that complicates this. TP-Link's extenders are supposed to work such that they automatically grab use the same channel and channel width as your main router. When you tell the extender not use a 2.4GHz uplink,, your 2.4GHz repeater settings will not match the rest of your network. The RE350K does not allow the user make any adjustments to either channel or channel width.. To get the full speeds of my internet connection on the 2.4GHz frequency, I find that I need to have 40MHz of bandwidth allocated. The problem with has to do with when you setup your extender to not connect to 2.4GHz as an uplink source, the RE350K will just randomly do whatever it wants for channel and channel width, often selecting a channel that you don't want it to use, and locks you in at 20MHz. The only work-around I have found is to temporarily connect the 2.4GHz uplink to get the extender to change toe 40MHz. You then have to disable the 2.4GHz uplink again to fix the low speed issue. After disabling the 2.4GHz uplink, the RE350K will continue to use the same channel and channel width for the 2.4GHz repeating as your main router. But if you ever unplug your extender, you'll have to go through that all again. If you're confused by that don't worry. I suspect that some technical-minded individuals will understand what I said above, but if you didn't, don't worry about it. Blame TP-Link for all that silliness This product isn't the most terrible thing ever. It does have reasonably good signal strength, but offer really bad real-world speeds at 2.4GHz if you use the 2.4GHz to connect to your router (other repeaters don't have nearly as much as a drop off when using the 2.4GHz to do both the connection to the router and the client devices). The way that TP-Link has locked out the channel width controls is inexcusable. Add that to the fact that you have to use a strange fix to force a 40MHz width makes the RE350K a device that isn't ready for prime time. If TP-Link ever releases a proper firmware for this device, it'll probably rate at 1 to 1.5 stars higher.

Perfect Solution

The guy recommended this for my Rogers modem I have at home that has a 5G wifi spot as well, so it extends both networks and works extremely well so far for the week that I've had it. Great Product

Great for wanting to use your 5Ghz for PS4

I bought this to use on my PS4 (which does not support 5GHz Wifi). simple setup, and it has a Ethernet port that acts as a wireless bridge for connecting a wired device/PS4 to your network.

Wifi extender

Bought this to extend poor wifi to one bedroom on 3rd floor of townhome. Plugged in and followed set up, disconnect from your internet and connect to extender internet to follow instructions. Computer must be able to obtain IP addresses. After set up, connected extender to mid point in house, not in dead zone but 2bd floor so it could connect to existing wifi. After it establishes connection, connect your devices to extender. Example, 2.4 will be 2.4ext and 5G will be 5Gext. All 4 options will show up. I connected to 5GEXT as 5G was not reaching dead zone. Went from dropping cell wifi connection in dead zone up to max 6mbs to not dropping connection to 75mbs. If you want to connect back to regular wifi and not ext, it uses same password if not changed during set up. Very happy with this product, however time will tell. Hope this helps futuer buyers

Easy to install and works like a charm

It took me between 7 to 10 minutes from opening the box to having the extender working properly. We had a DEAD ZONE in the basement (south side) and the router is upstairs (second level, north side). Once the extender was set up and the networks secured, I moved the extender to the main floor, middle of the floor. The signal is strong and both laptop and cellphone in the south side of the basement are working fast and flawless. I bought it on sale, which makes it even better.
