The Linksys RE6500 dual band wireless range extender uses AC1200 Wi-Fi to provide a greater wireless radius with more consistent, stable speeds at range. This allows lag free wireless gaming or buffer free streaming of media to your portable devices. Cross-band wireless technology uses both the 2.4 Ghz and 5 Ghz bands to individually send or receive data packets, rather than one band doing both, this results in the faster transfer speeds.
The external antenna include beamforming technology, which focuses the wireless signal in the direction of the device connected to the range extender. This makes the Wi-Fi signal more robust, letting you connect to the range extender at greater distances.
What wired connections are available on this range extender?
The Linksys RE6500 access point comes with an integrated gigabit four port network switch, this allows the range extender to act as a wireless bridge to connect wired devices to a wireless network. This works great with media players, game consoles, smart televisions and other devices that support a network connection.
The access point also features a 3.5mm audio out port which allows you to connect a set of speakers or a stereo system. This allows you play music directly from connected smart devices and computers.
Is this range extender easy to set up?
The RE6500 is simple to install and configure for use, with Spot Finder technology you are able to optimally position your range extender. Using a portable device such as a smart phone or tablet, the Spot Finder app allows you to see the access points signal strength in relation to your main router.
