Edimax EW-7478AC

details: AC1200 Dual-Band Wi-Fi Extender/Access Point/Wi-Fi Bridge
hardware type: Wireless Access Point
date added: 2017-03-19
The EW-7478AC can work as Wi-Fi extender, access point or Wi-Fi bridge. Just configure the mode you need for your network environment using the smart iQ Setup wizard and enjoy surfing the web.

The EW-7478AC designed with a detachable 3dBi dual-band antenna provides flexible and high performance connections for your wireless network.

Featuring a hardware switch to adjust between normal and green Wi-Fi transmit power (the strength of the Wi-Fi signal) or switch off the power with one click. If you only need Wi-Fi in a smaller house, you can switch to green mode to reduce transmit power by 75% and conserve energy.

Edimax cross-band technology uses both frequency bands together to maintain your router's maximum speed capacity through your extender and to your Wi-Fi device. Data is transmitted on one band and received on the other band, meaning no speed loss at your extender and a faster network with better performance.

The EW-7478AC is designed with a signal strength LED which lets you see the Wi-Fi signal strength received from the router and guides you to find the best setup location.
