Why do I need this range extender?
This Devolo AC range extender boosts your existing router’s Wi-Fi signal, allowing you to receive Wi-Fi in rooms where you may have experienced a weak Wi-Fi before. It can output both 2.4GHz and 5GHz wireless signals and provides a maximum combined wireless transfer speed of up to 1200Mbps. From now on you’ll be able to enjoy streaming, video calls and browsing internet with minimal amounts of annoying delays and interruptions.

Can I use this range extender for wired only devices?
A Gigabit Ethernet port is located at the bottom of the range extender, which allows you to use this range extender as a wireless bridge – so that you can connect wired network devices to a wireless signal. This makes it perfect for devices such as smart TVs, NAS drives, media players and games consoles that lack Wi-Fi capabilities.

Are there any other features?
On top of being a great range extender for your home, you can also use the Devolo AC1200 as an access point, which will help to create another Wi-Fi network in your home. To do this, you will need to connect this range extender directly to your router, but you’ll benefit with better transfer speeds and bandwidths leading to an improvement in general wireless connection.

How easy is it to set up?
Setting up this repeater is easy, with a range of different options you can use for setup – WPS, computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone. The easiest way to set up the repeater is to use the WPS button on the range extender, which will allow you to pair it to a WPS enabled router at the touch of a button. The LED indicator on the repeater helps you to find the optimal place to locate the extender for the best effect. Additionally, the compact design and integrated mains AC adapter means you can install this extender in a range of places within your home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works exactly to the design purpose. My AC1200 router has to be in a cupboard in the front door hallway. The 5 Ghz signal terminated exactly halfway towards the middle of my bungalow. Placing the range extender just inside this point I turned it on, waited two minutes then pressed the WPS button and bingo it was up and running. I now have full 5 Ghz signal throughout the property thanks to this brilliant piece of technology. Thank you Devolo and thank you Maplin for a great service.

We have purchased one of these and it works great but our building has very thick walls/lots of metal plates, is it possible to add another one to increase wifi coverage further?
