FTC Disclosure

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't whether I got it free or NOT!

TP-LINK AC1200 Wi-Fi Range Extender AV1200 Powerline Edition with Outlet Pass-Through (TL-WPA8630P KIT)

This installed correctly from the quick start sheet.  I admit that was a pleasant surprise.  Altogether too often quick start is a misnomer.  Another thing to consider is that I am running multiple routers, signal extenders and wireless paraphernalia.   I fully expected some conflicts.  I got no conflicts.

The one button wireless connected and used the system config so no extra passwords were needed.  Signal was strong and steady.

I particularly liked how plugging in and using the house wiring and providing hardwired connections at the other end worked cleanly.  I have a mini cellular tower that must be hardwired and sometimes there is no close hardwire connection.  (BTW off topic, if you are unlucky enough to be in a dreaded dead zone cellular wise, I strongly recommend the Samsung mini-cell tower.  With it I can use my cell phone at home, without it, I have to stand on one foot, hold the front pillar and lean off the front porch to get half a bar.)

Back to the TP Powerline, it configured easily and I got a hardwired 100mps at another location in the house.  This product passed all my tests with flying colors.

  • Wi-Fi Adapter Only
Bottom of Form
  • Connect anywhere - two power line adapters expand your network using electrical wiring, sending signal through walls and floors and into rooms needing better coverage
  • AC1200 Wi-Fi - game and watch HD movies in any room with AC1200 Dual band Wi-Fi
  • AV1200 power line - home Plug AV2 compliant with AV1200 power line speeds over electrical wiring
  • Two-step setup - Plug and play with No configuration required
  • Extra power socket - integrated Pass-through power socket with built in noise-filters keep your outlet free for other uses

If reviewing a product, it may have been received free of charge. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
