Linksys RE6500HG

details: AC1200 Dual-Band Wireless Range Extender
hardware type: Wireless Range Extender
date added: 2017-04-16
The RE6500HG extends the wireless coverage area in your home by up to 10,000 square feet by repeating and redistributing the signal from the router.

The RE6500HG's two external high gain antennas are designed to eliminate the dead zones that can occur when walls or construction materials obstruct the signal between your Wi-Fi devices and the extender.

It also features Crossband technology, allowing wireless bands to receive information on one band and transmit on the other to reduce dropped data packets. The result is a stronger, more reliable Wi-Fi signal, allowing you to stay connected on your laptop or mobile device from anywhere inside - or even outside - your home.

Linksys Spot Finder Technology provides a seamless setup process and helps you determine the optimal placement of the RE6500HG, allowing you to enjoy Wi-Fi even in the far reaches of your home. Using any mobile device, such as a smartphone or tablet, Spot Finder shows you where to place the range extender in relation to your existing router. Simply follow the prompts for a quick and easy setup.
