TP-Link RE650 AC2600 Universal Dual Band Range Extender, Broadband/Wi-Fi Extender, Wi-Fi Booster/Hotspot 1 Gigabit Port and 4 External Antennae, AP Mode, UK Plug - £79.99 Amazon Deal of the Day

A wifi extender thing, it has lots of antennae. looks cute as a button, and has a really long title on Amazon.
I’d much rather a powerline one, rather than repeating a degrading signal.
A second dedicate router may be a better choice.
This is pretty expensive.

Exactly the case.

I have taken these on holiday for that very reason. In the past I have taken a full-blown router, but nowadays I take this. Also to holiday apartments that have internet, but limited connections.

At home, I have a BT TV box connected to the internet via one, although you don't get full functionality when streaming via WiFi.

Why report it?


The fact that people like you and “tools comment boy” think this is ok to advertise to the masses is scary. This country has a massively under-reported growing at a scandalous rate problem with knives and it needs addressing before it’s too late!

People need management by the government to keep them safe las they clearly don’t understand what this leads to and as has been shown in this thread there are too many bottom feeders out there that clearly can’t look after themselves or their future generations with their own misguided lack of intelligence

Please read reviews of things like this before purchasing. http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2430217,00.aspThe AC standard is out however tell me some of the devices which actually support AC at the moment?Most SOHO users will only be wanting to stream things from the net and what are the general internet speeds? 20meg, 30meg depending on where you live so having a device that throws out a 1.5ish Gbps isnt going to make your internet speeds any quicker. You can future proof your self but in 5 years time you might be buying another router anyway.



The reason people upgrade to .ac is not usually to speed up their INTERNET connection (although some may think this, but unless your broadband package is up to 300Mbps or something like that, chances are you won't see much difference over 802.11n). It's usually because they want to be able to share data from somewhere on the local network to another device in the local network very quickly.

For example DLNA streaming large video files. The reason I bought this router was because Nvidia GameStream technology recommends ac routers because of their very high throughputs, so that a higher quality picture stream can be sent over the network.

Almost all of my devices are ac compatible, including my year old phone, year old laptop and anything that is half decent and under a year old

I have an Archer C7. Had it ages and paid £86 for it but it is worth every penny I paid for it so this price is a bargain.

It works with my wife's HTC One, my own Galaxy Note 3 and S4 phones. It also works with my Xiaomi MiPad and Buffalo Airstation devices.

It doesn't work with Chromecast on AC 5ghz but works fine at 2.4. There are so many nice options to play with, just set your ISP Modem/Router to bridge mode and go from there.

I have the ISP hardware as a separate WAP and then have 2 'private' SSID's, 1 AC and 1 N/G etc. Alongside that I then setup 2 'guest' WAP's, again 1 AC and then 1 N/G etc. I limit the bandwidth on them then so guests can't hog our bandwidth and set up start/finish times around our work hours so the guest networks are switched off while we are not at home.

So many other options to configure. The C7 is brilliant. I love it to bits.
Read review please people before buying things like this.

Thanks, nice tip.



You are welcome, I've found that Wireless distribution system WDS seldom works reliabily if at all using encryption like WPA2 if the units are from different vendors / models (this is where DDWRT really helps) or use 2 access points that are the same make / model.

I would really advise AGAINST using open, WEP, WPA stick to WPA2 with a PSK that is at least 12 characters long. Do not use the "push button wireless security" disable this as it has serious security flaws"

Finally if you do get an old ADSL or Cable modem you want to use do a factory reset (button on back or on base) hold down and power on for 20 while holding the button down then release. Google for the default login or it might be on a sticker on the base.

The Security Now podcast is worth a listen. If you open ports up to the internet the shields up page at GRC.COM is worth a look, grc.com/x/n…yd2 and for passwords there is a generator at grc.com/pas…htm

Also GRC.COM has good DNS speed testing, you can change your DNS provider and notice that web page loads get faster if your ISP has poor DNS.

The difference between this and the dual band is that this is an N150 unit (single band) the big difference is the Dual band can send / receive data to 2 devices concurrently. So for example you can stream video in HD to two devices without any issues on the N300 units. N150 can do HD to a single device without issue. Of course this depends on your source, interconnects and other bits and bobs. But this is a fast unit fine for 7 or 8 devices with web, video, iPlayer etc. at the same time. Remember iPlayer "HD" is not full HD.

Also look at the other parts of you network. I used AV200 mains network plugs and notice upgrading to AV500 on the ADSL modem end and the main media server improved things a lot.

I've ordered 2 of the Dual band Tenda N60s as there are HD capable tablets and laptops in the house. £29 ebuyer +P&P

Not sure why this is cold, especially since the OP went to such lengths … Not sure why this is cold, especially since the OP went to such lengths to share config insight. Lots of functionality to for a cheap router. Heat added by me, would have added rep too but I'm too inept to work out how.If you are interested in using multiple cheap wifi routers to for a single hotspot, its worth looking at http://www.ddwrt.com - it allows you to change the firmware of many low end routers to support functionality usually only found at the corporate end. It also means that diverse scrap routers from various sources can be set up to befunctionally identical and interoperable. I've built similar facilities in our house using Dlink DIR-615 routers that cost about a fiver on ebay.



Good point, was at the father in laws the other day he needed a switch to connect his FreeSat box to the internet as he only had a PC before and suing mains networking he only had one ethernet port in the room. He did have an old Sky router modem. I plugged it in to the main, logged in on my phone, set the wifi security to WPA2 AES PSK, disabled the DHCP, saved the setting, rebooted then plug the mains network, the PC and the FreeSAT into the switch part of the modem and he now has a Wifi AP and switch in the loft! Not bad for an old Sky modem. Of course and cable or ADSL modem can be used in this way. I had an old Sagem SKY modem my mum no longer needed re-flashed with official SAGEM firmware and it allow dual zone Wifi and many features not in the SKY firmware.

A word of warning if you have a working ADSL modem its best not to change the firmware while you are using it as if you get it wrong you will have no internet and flashing alternative firmware can void warranties!

ddwrt rocks and opens up amazing options - but even with stock firmware (the ones from Virgin, Sky etc) a lot can be done.

If you are new to firmware, home network etc start with small simple steps. Then build on the small successes. Large complex setups may not work as expected first time and debugging things can take some time!

There are a couple of options1) Wireless Repeater mode or Wireless Distribution mode2) Use some mains network plugs and one of these to extend the wifi rangeI'd recommend option 2) as it is simpler to set up, will not slow down wifi access downstairs and give you massive range as you can install the remote access point anywhere you have a mains outlet. Option 1) demands the second access point is within good range of the Sky router.I do exactly this for a bedroom in the loft (3 floor house) ADSL modem on ground, mains to loft, AP in loft. I was using the Tenda untill last week, but it did not work with my Nexus4 (bug in phone) so I swapped the Tenda with a Netgear (Virgin cable router - found in skip reflashed to stock firmware)

It has a built in modem as well. Not really sure what DD WRT is but I'm just looking at price - this is the cheapest I can find this model online

adsl version is £46.60
But why pay more than ebuyer ?

Only an N150 router, but still seems to be a reasonable deal at this price. Previously on HUKD at £12.48 (back in September I think). Now reduced further in price. Mostly really g… Read more
Hmm very mixed reviews this time round, in the older threads people were very positive towards it...
Avoid this router. I got it about 6 months ago when Ebuyer had it on for £11.99 including delivery. Had nothing but grief with it. Similar problems to those reported here with connection being constantly dropped. Had to reboot the router at least once a day to keep it going. Tried various firmware versions and I found it worked best in G mode only but still had problems in this configuration. Eventually gave up on it and paid £31 for a Cisco router which has been faultless. The only good news is Cisco had a £20 trade in offer for your old router so I actually made money on it! You really do get what you pay for.
I plugged it in (when at more expensive price) and got it working in minutes. Improved the range on my old wifi and can now use a netbook in the bedroom which is furthest room form it. Go for it
I had a Tenda W541R.... bloody awful, wireless just stops working every other day requires a reboot. I've recently bought the Sitecom WL312 from Play for £17.99 and I'm very pleased with it. Spend a few pounds more and save a world of grief. Link Here

Could this be used as a bridge?

If so wouldn't this be a great and cheap Xbox360 Wifi adapter?

Any usb wireless adapter should work... unless its a draft N model - then it might not.
No joy in connecting this. Is this because I am using a D-Link USB adapter? I dont have an ethernet port in to my PC. Will I need a Tenda USB adapter?

I'm a noob at this so be gentle.
I bought one of these routers to use an a wireless access point, I can't seem to get it to connect to my Sky sagem 2504 router?
Any help much appreciated.
Thanks, ordered a few to play with. :thumbsup:
