  1. I have WiFi at home, but the two access points don’t cover one end of the house. I ran an ethernet cable to this device and set it up, and it happily started working.I really love the fact that it comes with a POE injector, which was a tiny device that I had no trouble adding to my set-up. Always nice to save a wire!

  2. I have a router that hands out DHCP that I’m connecting the TP-Link AP too. The instructions do say that if your router is a DHCP Server that the TP-Link will automatically configure itself to turn of DHCP so it doesn’t hand out IP’s. The instructions worked as described. I did not have to turn off the DHCP server on the TPLink when in AP mode. Previous reviews said you had to so TP-Link must have upgraded to firmware to correct the issue. I had to walk my 87 yo mother through the process and we were successful. Just needed to connected to it to change Pass Phrase. Everything else was a simple as plugging in power and ethernet cable. Excellent experience.

  3. Until I can run cat6 in our new house, this has added a connection to our two printers, page scanner, and one workstation. The wireless connection speeds are excellent, there does not seem to be any issues when scanning, printing, or when my wife uses her workstation. I will purchase a second one for the far end of the house.

  4. I had ordered two AC1200 APs. One worked without issue. Very easy to set up and was exactly what I was looking for. The second one did have some problems. I contacted TP-Link support and after some troubleshooting, I now have a replacement AC1200 on the way.The support agent I was emailing with was very knowledgeable and quick to respond. They answered all of my questions about the device and about the process of returning it.These AP were not the first TP-Link devices I have bought but they will not be the last. Thank you.

  5. TL;dr — this AP is another case of good hardware, awful firmware. The OEM firmware makes this device unusable, but flashing OpenWRT makes it useful again.Full Review:I bought this access point to use as a wireless client bridge for a computer in my house that gets an extremely poor wireless signal. Initially, I was disappointed because I was limited to a 2.4GHz connection, as the 5GHz connection was too unstable to be used. I’d regularly run into issues watching YouTube videos, browsing the web, or making Zoom calls.The solution was to use the 2.4GHz radio instead. This meant that my connection was limited to ~45-60mbps, which pales in comparison to a typical 5GHz connection speed of ~250-300mbps. For reference, my iPhone 11 is able to pull ~560-620mbps when placed next to the hardwired access point.i initially considered returning the AP, but then I found someone online had ported OpenWRT to this access point. Although this may void the warranty, it solved my issue. No longer do I have stability issues with the 5GHz radio, which means that I have both a reliable and fast connection to the Internet again my home office.OpenWRT is great, although it’s far more complicated of an interface than the default TP-Link one. I would not recommend using this device in this configuration unless you’re familiar with more advanced networking concepts or are willing to learn.Pros:- Inexpensive- Supports wireless client bridge mode.- Supports PoE using the provided injector. This is extremely beneficial to my setup, since I can place the AP where I best receive a signal, even though I don’t have a power outlet nearby.- The Qualcomm Atheros QCA9886 802.11acn wireless radio has excellent performance- Gigabit LAN port (to the reviewer claiming it doesn’t have one, this is simply not the case; there’s no way I’d be able to pull 300mbps if it had a 10/100 interface).- The default firmware supports bridge mode with DHCP & NAT disabled, which means that every device connected through this AP has its real Ethernet MAC address exposed. If you plan to use this on a college campus or want your connected device(s) to be bridged to the parent network, this is very useful. If you use this mode, you can still control the AP’s settings using the assign IP address for the access point itself.Cons:- Default firmware means that the 5GHz radio is unstable. I also had problems with controlling the LEDs and updating settings.Bonus Pro-tip:I only used this device with one computer, but you could easily use an Ethernet switch with the single port on the back of this device to connect multiple computers/devices.
