Linksys RE6500

details: Dual Band Wireless AC Range Extender
hardware type: Wireless Range Extender
date added: 2014-07-17
updated: 2014-07-24
Thanks to high-speed wireless-AC technology, the RE6500 creates Wi-Fi speeds that are up to three times faster than wireless-N. You also get double the channel bandwidth, with 80MHz wide channels providing more room for more data to flow faster than ever.

The RE6500 features simultaneous dual bands, which means it transmits at both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequencies at the same time. It extends 2.4 and 5GHz Wi-Fi up to N300 Mbps + AC867 Mbps and reduces interference.

The RE6500 contains an audio jack that allows you to connect a speaker or stereo system and stream digital music from your smartphone or tablet.

To help protect your network and data, the RE6500 supports up to 128-bit encryption (WEP, WPA, and WPA2) and is equipped with a Wi-Fi Protected Setup button, allowing you to connect simply and securely with a wireless router or access point.
