I don't recommend it. TPL is usually pretty solid, but I've had nothing but trouble with my wifi extender the last couple months. Even though the network I set up over a year ago still works, the app to control it no longer even recognizes it. Stability has dropped drastically and I constantly need to power cycle it to keep it up.

Only issue: Can't delete/remove a device that I no longer have. Had router working for over 4 and a half years and was starting to disconnect. That's a decent lifecycle. Replaced that router with same brand and this app added the new router. Fine so far. But now it just shows the old one as"offline". Google for answer and the one they give does not work in the app (press and hold and a menu will come up with(-)

EDIT: Held down the reset, tried again the next day, and it hooked up fine. No idea why it didn't work the first time. Leaving the old review because the experience was still frustrating, but bumping up rating. Asking me for the password I created, but I never created a password. Default password doesn't work and there's no "Forgot Password" option. Manual has no other advice than a factory reset.
