TP-Link TL-WA850RE 300Mbps Universal Wi-Fi Range Extender Review

Personally speaking Tp-Link is one of the best Wi-Fi range extender available in the market right now under Rs. 1500. Great performance, it’s really boost wifi signal, easy to set up within 5-7 minute.

Works exactly what it is meant for. Nice packing and very easy installation. Just follow one of the two options as specified in the quick installation guide and you are ready to go.

In The Box:

  • Extender Unit.
  • User Guide.
  • Ethernet Cable.


  • It ONLY supports 2.4 Ghz band and NOT 5 Ghz band.(NOTE this Before Purchase).
  • Download TP Link Tether App and turn OFF the lights, to reduce the Heating issue on extender.
  • For best results use 300 mbps router with this extender.
  • Place it in same room with wifi router to get max. signal.
  • This will ensure, that you are getting most out of this Extender.
  • Place the Router as well as Extender at considerable height for max. Range.

Build Quality:

  • Compact form factor.
  • Very Light Weight (100 gram).
  • Made up of good quality Plastic.


  • Its Super Easy to setup.
  • Plug the Extender, press WPS button on router and press the RE button on extender.
  • It hardly took 3 minutes for me to connect to extender. ( with both the router )
  • Setup with Wire is also easy, hardly takes 10 minutes.( follow the user guide or check youtube video)


  • Has Dedicated APP, you can control entire wireless system with it.
  • App is Updated regularly.
  • Can access all the settings via App.


  • Range is Significantly increased with this extender.
  • I have 2000 sq.ft & now I get internet coverage in all the rooms.
  • NO Fluctuations in signal at all. Getting seamless performance.

Price: As per the price is concern, TP-Link TL-WA850RE 300Mbps Universal Wi-Fi Range Extender comes with the MRP of Rs. 3,599 but you can easily get this product from Amazon at Rs. 1,399.


  • Reasonable Price.
  • Works like charm.
  • Do not work without Electricity.


  • NO speed difference even if you connect to 300+ mbps router.
  • Doesn’t supports 5 Ghz band, so my Archer router was useless with this extender.
  • Has Heating Issues.
  • I am already using 150mbps extender since last 1 year & had NO issues yet.(Hope this goes fine as well).
  • Very difficult to connect 2 Extenders together.
  • I have 2 extenders, so tried connecting them. (Did NOT succeed).
  • App scans the extender each time you open it.(takes 20-30 secs to do this).

My Final Words:

With all the features given, the Range that I get and the considering the Price, I must say that its a Best Extender for 300 mbps in the Market right now. If you really searching for Wi-Fi range extender under Rs. 1500 then simply go for it, you surely going to love it.
