The dual-band TP-Link RE220 is a three-stream AC750 wireless range extender supporting maximum link rates of 300 Mbps at 2.4 GHz and 433 Mbps at 5 GHz. Compact in size, the TP-Link RE220 has a wall mount design that plugs directly into an electrical outlet.

Managing the RE220 is done via a cloud-based ID and by using TP-Link’s Tether app, also used for other TP-Link products as well, providing services such as parental controls, setup and security.

Other features include an wireless adapter functionality and AP-mode -both using RE220’s ethernet jack, dual-band backup, APS for seamless connections when traveling between the router and extender, WPS, and cloud-based firmware updates.

The TP-Link RE220 Wi-Fi range extender is available now, for 29.99, on Amazon.

The previous model RE200 is known for it's ability to extend wifi from another house 15 feet away. With permission, of course. This should perform even better!

TP-Link has a dual-band Wi-Fi 6 range extender, the WiFi Range Extender RE705X, that’ll sell for $99.99 later this year.

All that and no powerline. Using all avenues of available communication would make it more useful especially with their other products.

Nice, just as long as the ethernet port is gigabit and supports PoE, it'd be excellent at that price point

Price per benefit, powerline isnt great, would be convenient but would be no different than having 100Mb/s ethernet. the AV2000 which costs more than double this will practically do around 200Mb/s in the same medium to small sized house. You could also say the same as to why it doesnt have MoCA. While powerline might seem convenient, using it well isnt easy to do, and lots of interference too. MoCA most of them are also around 100Mb/s as well, can get faster but not as cheap and fast as a gigabit ethernet port, better to wire around.
