You work in a corporate office or from home and face network problems even though you are paying for the wifi which is expensive but you feel like you aren’t getting your money’s worth in terms of speed and range, well you are not alone in this. I too have faced such issues in the past and frankly, it’s just so annoying. I have had to wait for long periods of time for a certain content to be downloaded or change my working position to be near the router, I even tried rebooting the router many times but all I was getting were dead zones even though my home is small, I figured I had enough of this problem and went online to search for an affordable repeater to repeat my router’s wifi signal and extend the range and speed to cover all of my houses and et voila I found a really great repeater from tp link. It has the perfect blend of cost and affordability. It is what I have been using and haven’t had any problems with speed, latency, or range. It is actually one of the best repeaters in my opinion as it does most of what the expensive repeaters do but for an affordable price.
Setting up the extender
To complete a tplink repeater setup carefully unbox the repeater and plug it into an electrical socket and turn it on. Once the repeater has been turned on you can set it up, now the setup is really a piece of cake so don’t worry if you don’t possess a lot of technical knowledge cause anyone can easily set it up. Once the repeater has been turned on you can set it up using one of two ways either by using an ethernet cable or by Wirelessly connecting it with your smartphone. To set it up using an ethernet cable connect the ethernet cable to the repeater and then insert the other end in your personal computer and head over to the default gateway by typing in the default i.p address or www.tplinkrepeater.net and enter your login credentials. Once you have logged in to the page you can change the SSID and password of your repeater and set it as a different access point or you can connect to your router
