For a very wallet-friendly price, the TP-Link AC750 Universal Dual Band Range Extender is a great deal.
I’ll be honest, I wasn’t exactly filled with optimism when I unboxed the device. Only because I’ve had so many underwhelming experiences with products that promise the earth, but once they grace your household, they’re about as much use as an ashtray on a motorbike.
I decided to take a more methodical approach for once in my life and scanned the QR code on the quick set-up guide, which immediately directed me to a 3-minute set-up tutorial, which I thoroughly recommend you to try first. It was simplicity in itself to follow, and I was up and running in a matter of minutes. You may have to try several locations with your extender, to get the right result, as I did. I was a little optimistic with my first choice, and, thus, didn’t get the requisite displays on my extender. Once I’d located my device, around 15 feet from my sky router, I proceeded to my patio in the garden, and voila! Full internet access, with YouTube and Netflix that didn’t buffer. Not forgetting, that all of this, was the result of following the tutorial video, which advises you to plug in the device next to your router, download the extender app, and then follow the instructions. It is that simple.
TP-Link AC750 Universal Dual Band Range Extender Review
Now, depending on your geographical location, and ISP, results will certainly vary. So, in my case, my ISP is Sky, my maximum line capacity, is around 40mps. I performed a speed test on my static connection and got 38mps download, 15 uploads. I knew that the extender wouldn’t compete with these figures. But, as long as I could get decent WiFi in the garden I wasn’t too concerned.
The TP-Link User Manuals for the TP-Link AC750 Universal Dual Band Range Extender is very extensive and useful to have. I consult it about twice a year to remind me how to use the extender.
After my initial set-up was confirmed through the installed extender app, I performed another speed test out in the garden and got 18mps download, 6mps upload, some 80-100 feet from the location of my TP-Link extender, which I was more than happy with.
I now have a decent internet connection to the bottom of my garden, for less than a week’s worth of store-bought coffee, so I’m very happy. Time will tell whether or not this product continues to deliver, but, for now, I’m extremely happy with this product.
Overall, the TP-Link AC750 Universal Dual Band Range Extender has been a great addition to the home.
