Unboxing the TP-Link TL-WA854RE
Inside the box you will find the TP-Link extender, quick start guide and technical support booklet.
Usually a WiFi extender becomes a dedicated device that takes up permanent space at your home or office – keeping that in mind TP-Link has made this beautiful. TP-Link TL-WA854RE is using a plastic body, white coloured with glossy finish.
This extender has got a nice curvy design that gets slimmer towards the top. Looks great and futuristic thanks to the circular LED system on the front face, right bottom. There is a LED for power, WiFi and for the signal strength. All of the LED’s will light up if the signal strength is best.
A reset point is placed at the bottom.
There are two ways you can set this up. Either use the WPS button – press lock button on the extender and WPS button on your primary router.
The other option is to use the browse. First connect to the TP-Link extender, then open browser and type in tplinkrepeater.net use the default user / password as mentioned in the quick start guide and then look for your primary router and input the password.
My primary router name is rjv and on this extender I gave new name rjv_ext. I placed this extender in the passage area (check video review) and that way I was able to access the WiFi network from every room in my house.
Speed is as good as accessing the primary router, and I did not find any issues so far, signal strength was stable.
If you are using a WiFi router at home or office and are facing signal issues i.e. you are not able to access the WiFi network from some areas, you need an extender. The TP-Link WiFi range extender model TL-WA854RE is a good looking option for the price.
