• Wi-Fi audio allows you to stream music wirelessly from devices to connected speakers

Why would I use this range extender?
The Linksys RE6700 Amplify 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 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 on this range extender
The Linksys Amplify AC1200 features a single gigabit Ethernet port to allow non-wired devices to connect to your wireless network - these could be games consoles for online gaming or a smart television for streaming wireless HD media.
A 3.5mm jack socket allows you to connect a set of speakers to allow audio streaming from any portable device connected to the network.

How easy is this range extender to set up?
To help you find the optimal position for your Amplify AC1200 wireless range extender, you are provided with the Spot Finder application for your smartphone or tablet. This application will give you a visual representation of whether the range extender is too close or too far from your wireless router, allowing you to get the best possible coverage for your extended Wi-Fi signal. The range extender also features a mains pass-through to allow you to continue using your mains plug sockets even when the range extender is in use.

Our router delivers good signal strength in the house but not to the detached garage. iPads and iPhones unusable. Signal has to travel through three walls; two brick and one breeze block but distance is only 20 feet. Would this product cure the problem?

I get TV through the Internet but suffer a lot of buffering, will this Amplifyer help to stop the buffering?

Asked by: Annie
Only if poor WiFi is the cause of the buffering, if it's slow internet or streaming from a slow source then it will not prevent this.
