Made a big difference in my house 5/21/2020 12:32:35 PM

Pros: Boosted our internet substantially. Very good value.

Cons: Ended up having to set it up manually but wasn’t too complicated.

Overall Review: Wish I had got this years ago! Made such a difference to reception and speed in the upstairs rooms.

I wanted this to be good 4/18/2020 11:25:22 PM

Pros: When it works, it works well

Cons: Finicky menu options
Drops signal constantly
Sometimes flat out won't work until I hard reset it and start set up from the beginning again

Overall Review: TLDR: Bought 2, one works well, one is unusable. Purchase at your own risk.

I purchased two of these, one for my parents house, and one for my house. They don't seem to have trouble using theirs after I walked them through the set up process, however mine constantly troubles me.

It'll connect to the main router and work flawlessly for 1-2 days (tops), then it'll completely drop service and it won't reconnect until I hard reset the whole device. It's well within the advertised recommended range as well, and it constantly shows 3 signal bars, meaning it's receiving a strong signal. I have no idea why it drops service so suddenly. I've attempted to troubleshoot it online, but it seems I can't really find an answer anywhere.

After the hard reset, it'll work for another 1-2 days until I'll need to reset it again. It'll also let my devices connect to it, but it won't be connected to the internet.. Yet it'll still show 3 bars as "strong signal" received. I've also tried giving it a reserved IP address, but it didn't really change the capabilities of it.

Everything is great, until it's not 4/14/2020 10:27:50 AM

Overall Review: Purchased this about a month ago to finally get my whole house covered by the same WiFi extender. Setup was easy and went smoothly, and both coverage and signal strength were strong. However, it drops internet connection fairly frequently, not enough to be debilitating, but not constant enough to be reliable. With everyone home during the quarantine, there have been way too many times when everyone is suddenly up in arms because the WiFi is down, and that's not acceptable. Tried to find a firmware update on the Wavlink website, tried to email them, both with no success. Going to be purchasing a different unit. When it's working it's great, but you can't guarantee that it's going to be working 100% of the day.

Good product short life 3/17/2020 1:25:43 AM

Pros: Works as advertised , price point was excellent at time.

Cons: Short life, item stopped working 03/15/2020. Didn’t get quite 2 years out of product.

Overall Review: Good while it last 18-24 months, due to service life issues, if you can get it on sale a good stop gap measure.

Works in AP mode, not so much as extender 3/16/2020 3:13:26 AM

Pros: Able to run Ethernet to it from my router to bring signal into other rooms

Cons: You have to be reading poorly translated instructions. details not turning out to be present to be using in various modes. You must Mind meld with unit not to be confusing to you. Unfortunately I have no Vulcan blood in me.....

Overall Review: I recommend if on sale. Finally won and got it to do what I needed, better WIFI in my kitchen.

Pros: Worked great at first

Cons: short lived

Overall Review: I was using it as a repeater. Initially, it was great. But, it only lasted 2 weeks before it would continuously lose connection. Then, it quit completely. It was sent in for a replacement.

Good performance, great service 1/28/2020 10:16:08 AM

Pros: Easy setup and good performance

Overall Review: Bought 2 units from Newegg. One works flawlessly, one dropped internet connection repeatedly. Contacted WAVLINK support and they responded immediately with a firmware update. When that didn't correct the issue they had Newegg send a replacement unit in a timely manner. The new unit setup and has performed flawlessly. I am giving 5 eggs because this was done during the Christmas New Year holidays. The WAVLINK extender performs a lot better then the other brand that it replaceced.
