TP-Link Announces Dual-band 802.11 ac Range Extender

TP-LINK today announced the power wall-mountable Universal range extender: the TP-LINK RE200 AC750 Universal Dual Band Wi-Fi Range Extender. The sleek miniature device is designed to conveniently extend the coverage and improve the signal strength of an existing wireless network. The next-gen 802.11ac wireless range extender is designed to work with any Wi-Fi router and is compatible with 802.11 b/g/n and 802.11ac devices. Users can now expand the total range of their 11ac networks and enjoy 802.11ac speeds of up to 750 Mbps. The TP-LINK RE200 offers simultaneous throughput of up to 300Mbps for 2.4GHz networks and an additional 433 Mbps wireless transfer rate at 5GHz.

The new range extender includes advanced 64/128/152-bit WEP, WPA-PSK/ WPA2-PSK encryptions to protect networks from potential security threats. Users can readily deploy the device within range of an existing wireless network: simply press the WPS button on the main router and the Range Extender button on the RE200, and within 2 minutes a network connection is established. Login credentials are retained internally after initial setup, allowing users to relocate the device for optimal network coverage. Additionally, the built-in Ethernet port allows the Range Extender to function as a dual-band wireless adapter to connect wired devices, including TVs, set-top boxes, game consoles, and Blu-ray players. At the same time, the device can share the wireless network with mobile devices such as smartphones, laptops and tablets.
