Extend the range of your Wireless-AC signal and eliminate dead spots using the Linksys AC1200 MAX Wi-Fi Range Extender (RE6500).
Bring wireless Internet connectivity to the far reaches of your home with the extender’s range of up to 10,000 square feet.
The RE6500 will repeat the signal from the router and redistribute it to reduce wireless dead spots.
With the Linksys AC1200 MAX Wi-Fi Range Extender (RE6500), you can easily extend the range of your existing wireless router. Simply position the RE6500 in your home where you need connectivity or experience a weak signal—say, an upstairs bedroom or office or another remote area of your home such as an outdoor patio or deck.
Setting up the RE6500 is a breeze. Simply press the Push Button Connect function on the range extender to automatically sync it with your router. Then plug in the range extender near the area you’re experiencing a weak Wi-Fi signal. A green light will signify optimal placement, while an amber light will denote incorrect placement.
The RE6500 features wireless-AC technology for optimal throughput and is compatible with virtually any Wi-Fi router or gateway.
Featuring wireless-AC (802.11ac) technology, the RE6500 delivers speeds up to three times faster than wireless-N extenders, making it well suited for large homes with multiple devices and heavy online media usage.
The RE6500 features simultaneous dual bands, which means it transmits at both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequencies at the same time.
With Crossband technology, the dual wireless bands can now receive information on one band and transmit on the other, reducing dropped data packets and delivering a stronger, more consistent signal throughout your home.
In addition to wireless connectivity, the RE6500 features four Gigabit Ethernet ports that are 10 times faster than traditional Fast Ethernet ports, allowing you to establish fast, secure wired connections to desktop or laptop computers or virtually any other Internet-enabled device.
Like other Linksys products, the RE6500 supports up to 128-bit encryption (WEP, WPA, and WPA2) and has a WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup) button, allowing you to establish a connection easily and securely with a wireless router or access point to keep your network and your data safe.
