What customers say about "Key Specs"
TP-LINK RE365 AC1200 Mbps Wi-Fi Range Extender
  • Does the job well. Good speed of this device.
  • Has dual band 2.4ghz and 5ghz signal. Good for me.
  • Speed is awesome. Good product, I like it!
  • Slightly disappointed with the WiFi speeds.
  • There is some loss of speed on the wireless extender I have 160mb download which I get connecting wirelessly to the router.
TP-LINK RE305 AC1200 Universal Dual Band Range Extender
  • No drop in speed after several tests around the house and reliable WiFi.
  • Weak signal is cured and no matter where I go in the house I'm pretty much picking up full signal (5ghz) on my phone.
  • One handy thing about these plugs is they can be placed anywhere with power and an incoming router pickup signal. So I'm planning on using mine outside, on sunny days for extra garden coverage!
  • After trying a few extenders and different routers, this is the only one that works well. Extends the wifi at good speed up to the 3rd story. Easy to set up and reliable.
  • Weak connection speed to router, complicated to setup without WPS, and no 2.4G and 5G combined mode.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
TP-LINK RE365 AC1200 Mbps Wi-Fi Range Extender
  • Setting up this unit was fairly easy. Good size.
  • I liked that it was very easy to set up, thanks to small size.
  • Has small size and good design. Would recommend.
  • When it works, it's brilliant. Good little device for WiFi.
  • Very easy to install. Small size of this one. Great speed.
TP-LINK RE305 AC1200 Universal Dual Band Range Extender
  • Size made it possible to put it in a location I hadn't previously considered which avoids needing to go through walls.
  • It looks small and elegant! Very happy, definitely recommended.
  • It looks OK and is small enough to not completely block a double plug socket.
  • Small, elegant and does the job!
  • So essentially it will provide you with a much lower speed access point in the same room as your router, or a very small wall heater with a couple of pretty lights and no network access if you actually move it to another room.
