Green Wi-Fi Power Switch
Featuring a new hardware switch to adjust between normal and green Wi-Fi transmit power (the strength of the Wi-Fi signal) or switch off the power with one click. If you only need Wi-Fi in a smaller house, you can switch to green mode to reduce transmit power by 75% and conserve energy.
Cross-Band Technology for Maximum Speed
Edimax cross-band technology uses both frequency bands together to maintain your router’s maximum speed capacity through your extender and to your Wi-Fi device. Data is transmitted on one band and received on the other band, meaning no speed loss at your extender and a faster network with better performance. Perfect for high-speed applications such as HD video streaming or online gaming.
Smart Signal-Strength Indicator
Designed with a signal strength LED which lets you see the Wi-Fi signal strength received from the router and guides you to find the best setup location.
Program intelligent schedules to manage Wi-Fi availability and power usage according to your home’s routine.
The EW-7438AC also features a guest wireless network which could be used for visitors only and help to keep your home Wi-Fi private and secure.
