TP-Link’s TL-WA850RE Universal Wireless N Range Extender

These days, there are just too many awesome Wi-Fi-enabled devices. A wireless network is an absolute must. However, that Wi-Fi signal can’t always make it from the living room to the bedroom to the back deck to the basement. If you seem to be dropping that signal within just a few steps, your wireless network may need a little boost.

TP-Link has just launched the TL-WA850RE 300Mbps Universal Wireless N Range Extender, which can help with those weak signals.

Promising to boost your existing network by up to 40 percent, the 850RE is a small, wall-mounted adapter. Plug it in, push a few buttons, and start streaming.

TP-LINK suggests placing it somewhere between your router and the areas with the weakest signals. It also has a five-LED signal strength indicator on the front to help you find the best spot.

The 850RE even has an Ethernet port for use with a smart TV, game console or other Ethernet-enabled device.

TP-LINK has given the TL-WA850RE Range Extender support for all 802.11 b/g/n wireless devices, as well as Mac, Windows, NetWare, UNIX or Linux operating systems. It’s available now, with an MSRP of $39.99.
