Asus RP-AC87

details: Wireless-AC2600 Dual-Band Repeater
hardware type: Wireless Range Extender
date added: 2018-01-10
Powered by 802.11ac technology, RP-AC87 delivers ultra-fast wireless-AC speeds of up to 1734Mbps on the 5GHz band and 800Mbps on the 2.4GHz band — that's a combined total of 2534Mbps.

For best results, RP-AC87 needs to be within range of a strong and stable router signal, and should be placed between the router and the location where you need better wireless coverage— you can check this by simply using the signal strength LED on the front panel.

The RP-AC87 wireless repeater has 4 external antennas that help eliminate Wi-Fi dead zones and improve the coverage of any existing wireless router.

RP-AC87 has three working 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. In AP mode, it can be connected to any wired LAN — for example, a hotel's internet connection — to create a personal Wi-Fi hotspot, allowing the internet connection to be accessed from laptops, phones or other Wi-Fi devices.

You can use the WPS buttons on RP-AC87 and your router for instant automatic setup. Optimized performance is assured for a seamless and smooth internet experience. For advanced settings, you can connect RP-AC87 to a PC via an Ethernet cable and access the web-based configuration menu directly.

With the rotating mains plug, RP-AC87 can always be positioned upright for optimum performance, no matter what the orientation of the power socket is.
