TPL range extenders (RE) is well rated and hence i got it. looks like some of them are swearing by the device. PC Editor Mag recommended it.
i have to check and update firmware if needed - i got it from amazon 3 days ago. I configured SSID to have a _TPL (for tp link) for each of the connected frequencies.
the RE is only 3 days old and I had to restart 2 times with the Frontier FIOS router. when i place my android phone near TPL RE, i get 885 Mbps at 5Ghz - but sometimes it says internet not available.
i had to power cycle my frontier/fios router and then the TPL RE. till now it is stable as my RING camera is working.
Best Buy website has a 4.4 review and AMazons verified purchases have give 3.8 stars. So i dont know what is missing.
On a side note, the fios server has been working well when TPL RE indicates internet connection unavailable. If i connect my android device to the FIOS wireless, it works fine.
thanks and regards
