Flexible Placement
The device’s miniature size and wall-mounted design make it easy to deploy and move flexibly. Once connected with an existing router, you can simply unplug and plug the Range Extender back in anywhere within wireless range of the existing router, without need to configure again.

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 within 2 minutes.

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 show the strength of signal that TL-WA850RE receives from the existing router, which can help to find the right location to place the range extender.

Easy to setup and works well!

My household now has full signal wifi connection upstairs, and I can connect my desktop via the ethernet port. What a dream! I thought I'd have to buy 2 products to achieve this. @Anya J - Unless your product was defected, it should work as long as the extender is in a place that isn't a deadzone (can still pick up wifi signal in order to boost to the deadzone). Great Product!

Do Not Buy!

Very very poor signal and does not work through thin walls. Loot took 4 months to evaluate it and then said nothing is wrong. Even though it was clear it didn't work. Steer clear...

Don't waste your time or money

Mon, 4 Dec 2017 | Review by: Allan B

Connected it up, got the required min of 3 LED's, moved it to where I need to extend our wifi to and it made absolutely no difference to the signal. If I stood within a meter of the extender the signal was great but once I moved into the kitchen 2 mts away, there was no signal. The extender was setup within 5 mts of the main router, so that's not even an issue. Unless I had clear line of sight this product was useless. Loot's service however was outstanding.
