      Enhance your existing wireless coverage with the TP-Link TL-WA850RE Universal WiFi Booster.

      Improve your coverage


      The TP-Link TL-WA850RE extends the range of any wireless router or gateway, boosting your WiFi signal and extending your coverage by simply slotting into a free mains socket.

      Eliminating dead zones by extending your 2.4 GHz WiFi coverage to previously unreachable or hard to wire areas, the TP-Link WiFi Booster will provide you with 300 Mbps transfer speeds to enjoy lag-free downloads and streaming.

      Ideal for iPads, iPods, Android tablets, smartphones and laptops, you can make the most of enhanced coverage and also cut down on any 3G/4G mobile data you normally rely on for improved WiFi access.

      The TP-Link TL-WA850RE also boasts an Ethernet port allowing you to connect wired internet devices such as Blu-ray players to your home network quickly and easily.

      Secure connections


      The TP-Link TL-WA850RE features WPA and WPA2 security, in addition to 64/128/152-bit WEP encryption to ensure your wireless network remains secure from renegade hot spotters.

      If you are out and about and have a concern over the integrity of your at-home internet security, you can also customise and alter the settings of your network via a web browser.

      Small in stature, the wall mounted design of the TP-Link TL-WA850RE Universal WiFi Range Extender will make it easy for even networking novices to benefit from improved wireless coverage.

      Works as advertised. Simple to initialize using the WPS button on my router, I didn't need to do anything else to receive the extended signal on my mobile . I now receive my wi-fi signal throughout my flat, hooray.
      Slightly more expensive than the BT equivalent, but this one worked.

      It works ok,
      Has an alright design can be placed and moved as needed
      isn’t great has its peak and low periods, however that could be my temperamental internet,
      Design is slightly bulky - especially if you want to put a sofa in front of the plug socket
      Has a blue led always on glowing, not major, but is slightly annoying in a dimmed room

      It solves our problem - we can now connect to the web all over the house, which is why we bought it.
      It wasn't easy to get it working with our Sky Wi-Fi router. Don't knopw why. But my husband managed it in the end!

      It doesn't extend the range by very much at all - maybe 3 or 4 meters max. Largely a waste of money and time.
