Hi. Can someone tell me if I bought a TL-WA830RE and configured it as an extender, would I be able to connect a Samsung TV to the internet/home network via the wired port of the unit? The TL-WA830RE is the same price as a wireless dongle from Samsung and it would suit me to use this setup temporarily until I run a direct hard wire to the TV as I'd be able to use the TL-WA830RE as a simple extender elsewhere afterwards (whereas a dongle would be redundant). Thanks in advance.

Yes,it can. Once configured TL-WA830RE as an extender, the LAN port can be used for the TV and it also can extend the signal of the wireless broadband router. It worth its money.

Did this work for you? In extender mode I don't get any internet signal through the WAN port. I think that WAN port is just an input port not output.

I was asking this question to be pretty sure it would work before I bought one - so no, I don't have it working.

I wonder if anyone could please confirm if they have the unit configured and have an internet/network connection working through the wired port?
