TP-Link RE500

details: AC1900 Wi-Fi Range Extender
hardware type: Wireless Range Extender
date added: 2018-04-01
updated: 2018-04-02
Running up to 3x faster than traditional AC range extenders, the RE500 uses 3×3 MU-MIMO technology to serve up to three devices at once, reducing wait time and boosting Wi-Fi throughput for every device.

3-Stream technology helps reach maximum speeds of up to 600Mbps on 2.4GHz and 1300Mbps on 5GHz, supporting your most demanding online activities, including simultaneous 4K streaming and lag-free gaming.

With four external dual band antennas, the RE500 establishes a stable wireless connection to any Wi-Fi router to boost the network's coverage by up to 14,000 square feet.

Beamforming adds strength to the coverage by detecting the location of devices and concentrating Wi-Fi towards them for targeted connections.

The Intelligent Signal Light helps you quickly find the best location to install the RE500.
