Satisfied with the product, I recommend it to everyone.

There is an additional high-performance repeater mode, when one of the bands (2.4 GHz or 5 GHz) works only for reception, and the other only for transmission.

  • It can be used as a regular router by connecting an Ethernet cable.
  • When working with some Wifi networks (or routers) in repeater mode on the iPhone 6S, a warning appeared that the network was not secure, as if there was no AES support, and the Wifi amplifier only supported TKIP. Interestingly, when working with another router, the amplifier felt fine, and no warnings were displayed on the phone.

One of the best offers, glad I bought it.

Excellent signal amplifier, does what it was bought for: repeats the wi-fi signal. I bought it for the best Wi-Fi in the hall, so that the TV could work normally through Wi-Fi. Now everything works fine, the signal is good

The right product for me, the price suited me.

For me, it’s better to throw everything through the sockets, there are no speed losses and you also don’t need to throw anything, because there is an electrical network in every room.

  • It works, allows you to finish off in inaccessible places.
  • There is no particularly strong gain, it will help if you need to provide far corners with a network and no more.

There are some variations, but tolerable on the whole.

It was taken for installation in a room through the corner from the main router. As a result, in this room it reports that the signal is weak (at the same time, the main router gets there, but I wanted to strengthen it). I had to put it in the middle, and the meaning in the device is lost

Convenient connection through the application, set it and forget it. Buy if the signal is very weak and you need to raise it a little. Different pros: In the room, a weak signal of 4-5Mb / s, helped to amplify up to 15-20Mb / s. If the signal is higher than 20MB / s, there is no sense in the amplifier, the same signal will be or worse. Beautiful. Cons: Above 20MB / s did not receive as I did not conjure. It does not penetrate through the wall, even one.

I was surprised by the quality for this price.

Before that, there was another amplifier of a well-known Chinese company with 4 antennas, but it worked much worse than this. This has a better coverage area, the signal is more stable. Definitely recommend!

Absolutely unusable product, not suitable for use.

The service center diagnosed the burning of the board through the fault of the user, allegedly there was a voltage drop. Classic dismount from warranty Pros: Worked not bad. Sometimes the connection disappeared, but so rarely that it is not critical. Its cons: After 10 months of continuous work, at some point he took it and turned off.

The product is completely satisfied, performs its functions.

I set it up next to the router, transfer it to the next room - there is a connection, the speed is 0. I turn it back on next to the router - the speed is less than a megabit. I do a reset, set it up again, everything repeats - after setting it works, after turning it off / on, the speed is 0 or 0.6 Mb / s. As a result, it somehow worked and I did not touch it anymore.

  • Ease of setup. Management via mobile application. Acceptably works through 3 reinforced concrete walls. You can set the name as the main Wi-Fi and not switch access points on devices. You can turn off the indication on a schedule or completely. Not very large, it may not even cover neighboring outlets.
  • Easy to set up. but it works weird. It turned out to be set up in a working state from the fifth time, if not more, clinging to zyxel keenetic giga 2 (Keenetic OS version 22022. D2022.0-1).

The quality is at the level, I am satisfied with everything.

after installation, ated to 1.0.3 firmware. The speed on the TV set-top box has almost doubled. the router and the set-top box are separated by a room, but I didn’t want to pull the cable when drilling the walls, it’s also difficult to transfer the router. perfect solution. put in a separating room. let's see how it will work.

  • Confident connection. ease of setup.
  • heats up but not cool

I will never make this purchase again.

Router at the entrance to the apartment. The amplifier was placed in the center of a 3-room apartment. From the router to the adapter, only tongue-and-groove walls serve as obstacles. Distance 7 meters from the power. As a result, 30 remained from 100Mbps, a maximum of 40 as the card lays down. In this case, the signal is constantly lost somewhere. There is no Internet and that's it, I suffered for 3 days and scored. I found another great solution - PWA adapters, which I advise you.

  • Nothing.
  • Dusting in a box. Useless . It also freezes intermittently.

Reliable purchase, guaranteed to be a good purchase.

The goal was to kill two birds with one stone, amplify 2.4 GHz for remote smart switches in the apartment, and connect a printer without wi-fi but with ethernet, standing in another room. Both tasks have been completed. Not my first attempt to get a repeater for 2.4 GHz (D-Link DAP-1320 did not cope with the task), but the first one was successful. Probably because no matter how you amplify the 2.4 GHz range, it remains littered and the connection is constantly lost. Another thing is when the…

  • Easy setup, strong signal, stable performance. Cute.
  • It lacks advanced settings like manually assigning static addresses to DCHP addresses by MAC, but of course it's ridiculous to demand for such a price.

A wonderful product, it's nice to use.

- I first wanted to take TP-LINK TP-LINK RE305, but I didn’t understand why I should pay a thousand more, and there is no gigabit port here and there, but RE205 is a little more powerful: 19.5 dBM versus 17 dBM - works in conjunction with TP-LINK Archer D20, both are controlled through the same Tether application, which is very convenient. - I took it from behind a smart TV, connected the router to a 5GHz repeater, connected the repeater to the TV with a wire, turned on the repeater for…

  • - gives good coverage, even better than my router. (I tried all the modes and options for working, if the router is also with 5GHz, then there are a lot of them) - control via phone. - can be placed both vertically and horizontally (rotating antennas)
  • - I would like to have in the settings the ability to select the standard as in the router, I would set 8022022n only

A nice option for the money, one of the best deals.

The reception of the wi-fi signal is extremely poor in the kitchen, to solve this problem, I decided to purchase a TP-LINK RE205 repeater, setting up the device is extremely simple, press the wps button on the router and on the device and everything else will happen automatically. Dual-band which is very necessary in our time. After the settings, the name of your access point appears in the list of networks with the addition EXT. In general, the purchase is satisfied.

  • 2 antennas, 2.4GHz/5GHz available, fairly compact. Quick setup out of the box - got it, stuck it :), clicked on wps on the devices and that's it! Setup takes 2-3 minutes.
  • Until I noticed.

At home, not all rooms had normal Wi-Fi, my 2.4 GHz network was clogged, the output was only at 5 GHz. Set and forget. Who complains about the connection: in the settings, set the reception to 5 GHz, the distribution as you wish. That is, it will receive a signal at 5 GHz and distribute it in 2 bands, well, or whatever you want). I saw reviews that, they say, only one indicator is on: this is just an indication of the frequency of signal reception, and not distribution. Here I receive it at 5…

  • Pretty easy to set up, plug it in and forget about it)
  • Is that the price)
