App Has Its Limits Currently
I really like the features and functionality of being able to see devices, locating repeater feature, and several others. However, it doesn’t have / utilize “Face Id” and every time I login the app rejects my password, no matter what I do as far as retyyor changing, it rejects them and threatens to lock app for 10 mins. VERY FRUSTRATING! Please get these bugs fixed as soon as possible.
Lastly, the TP-Link AX-3000 repeater has worked great so far during the past initial use of 2 weeks! It offers 2.4G & 5G at the same time and it looks like the equipment that links up pics the band it needs.
As far as the installation, download this APP and follow instructions, just that EASY! I needed this product boost my WIFI signal from my home to my guest house that is approx. 40 ft. away from my garage which is the closest point to position repeater that has a 110vAC outlet. I get a full set of bars on 2.4G and 3 bars on 5G signal. No buffering on 2 TVs, 1 computer, and 2 cellphones while also allowing additional equipment in my main home to access this repeater. AGAIN, so far it is working perfectly! Just get a couple of the items I mentioned earlier and it will earn 5 stars. Current price is reasonable given the service expectations met.
Better than some, needs better QA
I may revise this later, as I'm new to TP_Link Tether. However, here on the 1st day, a "gotcha" emerges: I see _no_obvious_way_to_log_out_! This could be just annoying, but at a certain point, when I wanted to do something beyond logging in and looking around, it advised me that I'd reached Tether's limits, and I should go to the webpage, a link to which it helpfully provided. However, when I got to the webpage & attempted to log in, it informed me that my device allows only a single admin user at a time. Alright, so HOW DO I LOG OUT? Bit of a "gotcha", eh?
The other thing that could use refinement is handling passwords. I would think this would be a prime UseCase for a router interface, deserving of easy visibilty, but apparently I am mistaken. I see no obvious way to manage passwords -- creation, updating, etc.
My guess is that both of my complaints are trivial to the insiders who use it every day and programmed this tool. For those of us "outsiders", however, it occasions some head scratching. What do you say, guys, want to let the rest of us use the tool as easily as you do?
The buddy system
Everything has been working fine. I still haven’t binded my system because I am connected to the main house. I have a hardline approximately 150’ that tethers this box to our main provider. I had read that I could possibly end up shutting the main system down from its ability to provide a wifi signal. All the devices in the main house run off wifi so I’ve decided to leave well enough alone. It doesn’t seem to be losing its signal because twice now I lost it once because the main errored and again today. I had to unplug this end to reboot it. Other than that Spectrum ran a promotion a few years back giving a 2G network for 15 dollars to the senior citizens. Promised never to go up. The bill went up and we mentioned it. They said they needed the flyer to prove what they said. Periodically I notice a change in the address going from 2d to 1d. And we pay more money.
