Sorry to sound rude...but not sure what you're asking?

It doesn't increase the speed as such but extends the range if your wifi network. But I suppose it could if you get poor speeds at the end of the range of your current network due to a weak signal.

This is a repeater, it repeats the signal, think of it like a bridge , not a booster.

Repeaters don't boost speeds, rather they reduce speeds (by half?) as they have to send the same data to and from the main wireless router.

They do boost range though, so you do get at least some coverage where you otherwise may get none

Anyone know how these work?
Is it a two piece set, with one piece plugged into the router and another piece placed elsewhere in the house, needing a power source?

No it is wps. If you have a newish router then it should have a wps button. Press it and the wps on this device and they pair a bit like bluetooth devices. You have to locate them were you still have signal from your router. This device repeats it as if the router was at he location of the repeater.

No wps button on mine unfortunately. I do have another router that I got sent several months ago that I haven't got around to installing yet so may have to take a look at that.

+1 from me as well. Bought the TP link when it was on a daily deal from Groupon recently for £10. Cracking bit of kit, multi-functional as well.

Get one with an aerial to pick up and an aerial to send out. Edimax do a nice one

You will be able to configure manually by connecting a cable and entering the ip address, for some people this will be a bit difficult to set up

A bit of a broad statement. TP link can be used in many diffident ways, such as via home plug so no need for aerial! If you get stuck
TP link have free 24 hour help line. However, it goes directly to someone in Asia. They won't understand you and you won't understand them!! I had a wonderful conversation with a charming lady who tried to be helpful, but the only bit I understood was ..,thank you for calling TP link !!

WR702N also available at PC World for £16.49 for those that want a local store (even if it is PC World!):

Anyone know how these compare to other devices on reception?
Some of the laptops in the house are ok right in the corner (which is where the power is in the living room), but others don't get a decent connection there.

Presumably this does the same job as the well reviewed Huawei Wi-Fi Repeater? £27.35 on Amazon, but at least with a known track record:

Not that much of a bargain, especially since we don't know how well it performs. You can buy reviewed, branded equivalents for less than £25. Better still, according to Web User mag recently, the TP-Link TL-WA830RE does a significantly better job than plug-in devices like this and is much more versatile, although it takes up more space (size of a small router) and won't be as easy to set up. Widely available for less than £30.

Are these repeaters being sold at all Lidl outlets from Thursday this week? Thanks.

Problems with Lidls supplier have prevented this being in stock today. So dont waste your time going to your local store trying to buy one as I did.

Thanks for info, did they says when they may get them? Assume not, but wanted to check. Cheers.

Dumfries store has them for 39.99. You can get them at that price anywhere. False advertising.

No those are the Homeplug Network Adapter Kits that utilise the wiring within your walls.

The repeaters were just a single plug that connected to your network wirelessly and effectively extended your wireless signal allowing you to broadcast strongly to an area that was a dead/black spot within your home.

a) No, you connect via wifi, and
b) you do realise this deal is from last Xmas?
