Asus RP-AC56

details: Wireless-AC1200 Dual-band AP/Repeater/Media bridge
hardware type: Wireless Access Point
date added: 2015-08-17
The RP-AC56 wireless repeater has two external MIMO antennas that help to eliminate signal dead zones and improve the coverage of any existing wireless router. It works as a repeater, which means it can extend wireless networking to every corner of the home — even to those difficult, hard-to-reach spots. With 802.11ac speeds up to 1167Mbps (867Mbps AC + 300Mbps N), it's ideal for extending your existing 802.11ac Wi-Fi network.

RP-AC56 wireless repeater installation doesn't require a CD or even a mouse and keyboard. Simply press the WPS button and setup is complete.

For advanced settings, you can connect RP-AC56 to a PC via an Ethernet cable and access the web-based configuration menu directly, with no disc or app needed. You can even set it up wirelessly from a tablet or smartphone.

RP-AC56 works best when it is receiving a strong wireless signal from the router — you can check this by using the signal strength indicator on the front panel.

You can connect speakers to the RP-AC56 wireless repeater and stream your favorite music direct from any mobile device that has the ASUS AiPlayer app installed. It's compatible with a wide range of multimedia formats and delivers a smooth and effortless streaming experience, anywhere in the home. RP-AC56 can also stream music from Mac and iOS devices with no need for extra software.

With its rotating mains plug, RP-AC56 can be positioned upright for optimum performance no matter what the orientation of the power socket.

RP-AC56 has two more convenient modes to make it even more flexible. As well as a repeater, it can also work as a wireless access point (AP) or as a media bridge.
