Amped Wireless announced today the newest generation of AC2600 Wi-Fi performance. The new ATHENA-R2, High Power AC2600 Wi-Fi Router with Advanced MU-MIMO and the ATHENA-EX AC2600 Wi-Fi Range Extender with Advanced MU-MIMO, were announced today and will be unveiled tomorrow at the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show.

The ATHENA-R2 Router is suitable for homes that harbor multiple devices all reaching for the same Wi-Fi connection. The new ATHENA-R2 is able to stream high quality data at faster speeds to up to four devices at once, delivering quadrupled speeds for multiple devices. It is designed to provide reliable, whole-home connections with four high gain antennas and 16 high power amplifiers.

With both a USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 port, the ATHENA-R2 is equipped for high speed, local file sharing powered by Paragon Software and is built with four gigabit wired ports to directly connect other devices like PCs and Smart TVs.

The ATHENA-EX is the first High Power AC2600 Wi-Fi Range Extender. It features four high gain antennas and 16 high power amplifiers and is capable of extending the range of any Wi-Fi router by up to 15,000 square feet. It eliminates Wi-Fi dead spots and packs enough power to blanket more than just the home or office.

The ATHENA-EX is also the first Wi-Fi extender to feature Multi-User MIMO technology. The Extender also houses five gigabit wired ports to bridge in any wired network devices like printers, PCs and gaming consoles. The two USB storage ports also allow for fast file sharing within the network.

The Amped Wireless ATHENA-R2 will be priced at $239.99 and the ATHENA-EX range extender at $219.99. Both devices will be available towards the end of Q1.
