TP-Link has been one of the cornerstones of networking products on the global market since their first entry into the international market in 2005. Although they were formed in 1996, they have gone from strength to strength since then and continue to provide consumers and businesses alike with many different products, catering for many different needs.
For those of you that do not know; Wireless Extenders are a good way to get your internet signal from one room to another without having to run cables through the whole house. To use the adapters you just plug one into your wall somewhere away from the router and it extends the range of the wireless somewhat far.
Today we will be taking a look at the TP-Link RE200 AC750 WiFi range extender. One of the unique features here is it AC compatible and therefore support both he 2.4 and 5GHz wireless frequencies. Great for people new to the relatively, or in my case clear, frequency that is 5GHz WiFi.
