Linksys RE6500 Universal Dual Band AC1200 Wi-Fi Range Extender Product Description

Extend the range of your Wireless-AC signal and eliminate dead spots using the Linksys AC1200 MAX Wi-Fi Range Extender (RE6500). Bring wireless Internet connectivity to the far reaches of your home. Wireless-AC technology and dual bands allow you to stream HD-quality films and games without interference. Four Gigabit Ethernet ports enable wired connections, while an audio jack lets you connect speakers for streaming music. Set-up is simple with no installation CD required.

Universally Compatible with Routers

The RE6500 features wireless-AC technology for optimal throughput and is compatible with virtually any Wi-Fi router or gateway. Simply connect it to your current wireless network to enjoy Internet access on all your devices from anywhere in your home.

Eliminate Dead Spots and Increase Wi-Fi Range

With the Linksys AC1200 MAX Wi-Fi Range Extender (RE6500), you can easily extend the range of your existing wireless router. Simply position the RE6500 in your home where you need connectivity or experience a weak signal -- say, an upstairs bedroom, office or another remote area of your home such as an outdoor patio or deck. The RE6500 will repeat the signal from the router and redistribute it to reduce wireless dead spots.

Wireless-AC for Max Performance

Featuring wireless-AC (802.11ac) technology, the RE6500 delivers speeds up to three times faster than wireless-N extenders, making it well suited for large homes with multiple devices and heavy online media usage. Dual wireless bands of 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz can deliver data transfer speeds of up to N300 Mbps AC867 Mbps for seamless HD streaming without interruptions.

Simultaneous Dual Band Wi-Fi

The RE6500 features simultaneous dual bands, which means it transmits at both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequencies at the same time. It extends 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz Wi-Fi up to N300 Mbps AC867 Mbps and reduces interference. So no matter which band your wireless devices use, they'll automatically connect to the best available band for the fastest possible performance.

New Innovative Crossband Technology

With Crossband technology, the dual wireless bands can receive information on one band and transmit on the other, reducing dropped data packets and delivering a stronger, more consistent signal throughout your home.

Four Gigabit Ethernet Ports for Wired Connections

In addition to wireless connectivity, the RE6500 features four Gigabit Ethernet ports that are up to 10 times faster than traditional Fast Ethernet ports, allowing you to establish fast, secure wired connections to desktop or laptop computers or virtually any other Internet-enabled device. Placing the range extender on a desk near the device makes wired connections easy.

Access Point for Streaming Music

Along with Gigabit Ethernet ports, the RE6500 sports an audio jack on the back, which enables you to connect a stereo system or a speaker to the range extender and wirelessly stream music from your smartphone or laptop.

Security Support to Protect Your Data

The RE6500 supports up to 128-bit encryption (WEP, WPA, and WPA2) and has a WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Set-up) button, allowing you to establish a connection easily and securely with a wireless router or access point to keep your network and your data safe.
