TP-Link RE550

details: AC1900 Wi-Fi Range Extender
hardware type: Wireless Range Extender
date added: 2021-11-16
updated: 2021-12-05
A single router has limited Wi-Fi coverage and always causes Wi-Fi dead zones. RE550 wirelessly connects to your existing router and expands its Wi-Fi signal into areas it can’t reach on its own. Enjoy your stable network experience wherever you are at home.

With TP-Link Mesh Technology, it's easy to form a Mesh network with a single Wi-Fi name for seamless whole home coverage. Just connect RE550 to a OneMeshTM router. Always enjoy the strongest Wi-Fi when you're walking around with no need to search around for a stable connection.

RE550 delivers dual band (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz) to transmit Wi-Fi signals, doubling the performance of each band. It enables you to keep more devices connected at the same time with its 600 Mbps 2.4 GHz and 1300 Mbps 5 GHz dual bands. Use the 2.4 GHz band to send email and browse the web and the 5 GHz band for gaming and HD streaming.

Adaptive Path Selection keeps your network running at optimal speeds by automatically choosing the fastest connection path to the router. Always keep your devices fast and stable - ideal for network environments crowded with many devices and applications.

Uses one dedicated Wi-Fi band as backhaul and another dedicated Wi-Fi band as an access point to maximize the bandwidth on the extended Wi-Fi.

RE550 is more than a wireless range extender. Simply plug an Ethernet cable into its Ethernet port and easily turn your wired internet connection into a 3×3 MIMO dual band wireless access point.

Set up and manage your Wi-Fi through the TP-Link Tether app from your smartphone (Android, iOS), including TP-Link routers and range extenders.
