By Pat Seery Guest Reviewer.  Having gotten this to regain some wi-fi signal in the black hole of the house where even 4G signals disappear to somewhere unknown I set about the setup (I chose to do it through WPS) as I need a secure wi-fi connection and no back doors so I’m rather cagey about secure wi-fi (Normally I use wired where possible) but the setup on this is a doddle. Plug it in and press the WPS button on the router then (within 2 mins) press the WPS button on the device itself. Three powerful antennas send AC1750 wi-fi coverage across your home. There is also a setup tutorial here should run into any difficulties.

Whats In The Box

TP-Link AC1750 WiFi Range Extender

Instruction Manual


Expand Wi-Fi Network for Ultimate Performance

Expanded 450Mbps on 2.4GHz + 1300Mbps on 5GHz totals 1750Mbps Wi-Fi speeds

Three adjustable external antennas provide optimal Wi-Fi coverage and reliable connections

Gigabit Ethernet port acts as a wireless adapter to connect a wired device to your network at gigabit speed

Intelligent signal light helps to find the best location for optimal Wi-Fi coverage by showing the signal strength

Works with any Wi-Fi router or wireless access point.

It will connect to both 2.4ghz and 5ghz or either one depending on your wifi setup. It will also tell you when its connected by going from a blinking blue circle to a solid blue circle with indicators for wifi and 2.4ghz or 5ghz to let you know what signal you`re on.

I connected through a range of different devices from Samsung phones Smart TV and Game consoles and had no problems whatsoever. I had no problem getting over 100mbs on the device but this is through several walls and from the router which is located up stairs and at the front of the house.

It also has a gigabit wired input which works wonderfully and really gives the kick you need when multiple people are on the same connection.
