Works for me as a wifi extender. Like my title says: works great, easy interface, good price. Gitcha two or three of these and you'll be good to go. One gotcha: single band transmitter.
while the product is ok, this item simple differed from the one in the picture. they promote as 450 Mbps, and is actually 350Mbps, the one I got is not even close to the one in the picture. so I don't know if I got ripped off or what. I tried to contact the vendor but impossible......so I'm using the one they send me.
WHY I BOUGHT IT: I bought this because it was cheap, and because I wanted something for my camper to bridge a wireless connection with (I wont go into the techie details about how many wireless devices I plan to attach). The wireless bridging feature and price were the giant selling point. I thought the antennas were upgradable, but I guess I was thinking of the TL-WR941ND version. This being the case, I used it to replace my home router and bought the TL-WR941ND elsewhere for the camper. WHY I LIKE IT: The range on the TL-WR940N far exceeds my previous Belkin N router, seems perfectly stable, and it's firmware can be updated out of the box. It is highly customizable with lots of features, especially with security. The built-in help notations on each page were great for acronym'd features that I had no immediate idea of what they did. Sometimes the help is almost humorously blunt, like "If you want to do this, then select that." Direct, helpful, no research required. It also tells you when you selected something that might be an issue "we don't recommend this" or if you selected an option that conflicts with another setting on another page it will tell you so. Rather smart for an inexpensive router, in my humble opinion. WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE: No detachable antennas? This was an unfounded expectation of mine. My bad for not realizing this was not a "feature", so that one's on me. No wireless AP mode? Come on, TP-Link, you could have done better. You can work around this by disabling DHCP, changing the local (LAN) IP address, and plugging the wire into one of the switch ports (maybe not in that order). Still, annoying, but whatever. Furthermore on the subject of wireless AP mode, with bridging being a thing this does, "Wireless AP Wireless Bridge" seems like something they should have included as a feature. Again, workaround is to set it up as mentioned earlier but then put in the bridge settings. One last annoyance: Wireless Bridge DOES NOT tell you when it cannot connect to the other wireless router. With everything else the UI warns you about, one might think that if it cannot connect to another wireless router, it should say so. In my case, I spent about 5 hours trying to figure out why DHCP wouldn't pass through from my other wireless AP. Turns out I fat-fingered a single character in the wireless password. Does the router tell you that? Nope. Just pretends like it's working fine. Again, my fault, but still, come on.
