TP-Link USA Corp. (“TP-Link USA”) provides a limited warranty on all eligible TP-Link products purchased in the United States. The limited warranty covers failures due to defects in material or workmanship on devices, antennas and accessories*. Packaging, software products and technical data are not covered under the limited warranty. The limited warranty is only applicable to the original purchaser of the product. Proof of purchase and a complete product serial number are required to receive any services guaranteed as part of the limited warranty.

The limited warranty does not apply to refurbished products or products that were resold by unauthorized resellers. For TP-Link Refurbished Product Warranty Policy, please visit http://www.tp-link.com/us/support/refurbished/

TP-Link USA does not provide refunds under the limited warranty in any conditions. TP-Link will replace defective units with factory refurbished products. If a factory refurbished unit is not available, then the defective unit will be replaced with a brand new product. If the defective unit is discontinued, TP-Link will replace it with product(s) of equivalent value and features. Product warranty periods do not renew with replacement units.
