With the AC1200 MAX Wi-Fi Range Extender (RE6700), you can easily expand the range of your existing wireless router. Simply plug the device into a standard wall outlet where you need stronger Internet connectivity - say, an upstairs bedroom or office or another remote area of your home. The RE6700 repeats the signal from the router and redistributes it to reduce wireless dead spots.

Featuring dual wireless bands of 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz, the RE6700 can deliver data transfer speeds of up to AC866 Mbps + N300 Mbps.

Using the Wireless-AC standard, the RE6700 also delivers innovative beamforming technology, which strengthens the wireless signal to specific devices, rather than simply sending out Wi-Fi in a general direction.

Crossband technology helps maximize the simultaneous use of both the 2.4 and 5 GHz bands for high-speed data transfer and uninterrupted streaming and gaming. With Crossband technology, the dual wireless bands can now receive information on one band and transmit on the other, reducing dropped data packets and delivering a stronger, more consistent signal throughout your home.

The RE6700 is equipped with an external pass-through plug, leaving an available AC outlet to charge a smartphone or laptop.

Ideal for music lovers, the RE6700 supports a 3.5mm audio jack that lets you connect a stereo system or a speaker to the range extender and wirelessly stream music from your smartphone, tablet, or laptop.
