Special Features

• Built-in mains AC adapter allows you to quickly move the range extender to where it’s needed most
• Fast lane technology automatically selects the fastest Wi-Fi band for your devices, optimizing your wireless connection

How does this range extender benefit my wireless network?
Once set up, the NETGEAR EX6120 AC1200 Wi-Fi range extender allows you to repeat an existing wireless signal. This effectively increases the range of the wireless signal emitted by an existing Wi-Fi router. This is extremely helpful in areas of low coverage and improves connectivity to your wireless network at greater distances.

What devices work with this range extender?
The NETGEAR EX1620 AC1200 Wi-Fi range extender uses a dual band wireless frequency to allow devices to communicate with your wireless router. This signal is made up of 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequencies, providing a total of 1,200Mbps of wireless bandwidth.

This is more than enough for devices such as desktop computers, smart televisions, set top boxes and game consoles with wireless features to enjoy a steady, strong connection to your network. Personal devices such as mobile smartphones and tablets are able to connect to the NETGEAR EX610 with ease, allowing you to browse the web throughout your home or office, or allowing you to utilise your network features without using the valuable data allowances provided by your mobile network. Auto lane technology selects the fastest Wi-Fi band for your devices, this is great for streaming HD media or playing wireless video games.

What use can be seen from Ethernet port?
Featuring a fast 10/100 Ethernet port, the NETGEAR EX610 allows you to attach a single LAN device that lacks wireless capabilities to your wireless network. This is a great solution for games consoles and smart televisions that only feature an Ethernet port for network connectivity. The range extender also features a built-on mains AC adapter, which allows you to move the extender easily from room to room, or where it’s needed most.

Can I monitor my Wi-Fi usage using the EX6150?
The NETGEAR EX6150 allows you to monitor the Wi-Fi usage and current speed of connected devices using the NETGEAR Wi-Fi analytics tools available for Android devices.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Weak.... Too weak to pull the skin off a rice pudding! Tried all the 240v sockets and can't find one that gives full coverage around my house.

This depends entirely on the signal strength around your house. It is best placed in an area where the signal strength is around half way
