    Amped Wireless, the leading manufacturer of high power, long range wireless communication products for the home and office, today announced the launch of the AP20000G High Power Wireless-N 600 milliwatts (mW), Gigabit Dual Band Access Point, a versatile wireless access point designed to deliver powerful, long range, high-performance wireless access for existing home and business networks.

    Through the use of a high speed 620 MHz processor, premium high power Wi-Fi 600 mW 2.4 GHz amplifiers, high power 5.0 GHz Wi-Fi amplifiers and two dual band high gain antennas, the Amped Wireless High Power Gigabit Dual Band Access Point delivers up to 7,500 square feet of simultaneous dual band Wi-Fi coverage for large homes and offices.

    The AP20000G features a USB port to share files on a USB storage devices among local connected users and four gigabit wired ports for connecting additional wired network devices, such as servers, computers and other networking accessories. The High Power Dual Band Wi-Fi Access Point includes premium software features, such as guest networks, adjustable Wi-Fi coverage controls, and support for the latest Wi-Fi security to secure your Wi-Fi experience.

    Advanced software allows the AP20000G to automatically configure itself to a network's settings without the user's input or configuration. The AP20000G simply connects to the router's network port, automatically configures itself and creates a new wireless and wired network for connecting wired or wireless computers, printers and other network devices.

    Key Features

    ● Dual High Power 2.4 GHz 600mW Amplifiers, Dual High Power 5.0 GHz Amplifiers and Dual Low Noise Amplifiers for Improving Wireless Reception
    ● Dual High Gain 5dBi Detachable Dual Band Antennas
    ● Powerful Internal Processor for Faster Networking
    ● 5x Gigabit Networking Ports (1 x Uplink, 4 x LAN)
    ● USB 2.0 Port for Sharing USB Storage Devices Locally
    ● Adjustable Wi-Fi Coverage
    ● Provide up to Eight Wi-Fi networks for guest access
    ● Intelligent plug and play setup

    The Amped Wireless Difference: High Power Technology
    Amped Wireless products feature advanced Wi-Fi amplifiers to boost wireless performance. Standard Wi-Fi devices have a wireless output power of 50mW, while Amped Wireless products boasts dual 2.4 GHz amplifiers with 600mW of output power and dual 5.0 GHz amplifiers. The boosted performance is optimally tuned with dual high gain 5dBi dual band antennas for maximum range and performance. (Typical Wi-Fi devices do not utilize wireless amplifiers and are equipped with antennas that have zero antenna gain.)

    Pricing and Availability
    The AP20000G has a retail price of $169.99 and is available now for pre-order from the Amped Wireless web store. It will be available nationwide late September.

    I wish routers could have reviews with more thorough benchmarkings.

    IE: processor benchmarks, verified power transmissions, and other measurements.

    +1. Unfortunatley routers are usually things that people don't really care about (unless they're not working). They are often provided by ISP's and are too often locked down.

    These guys need to start shipping WORLDWIDE instead of NATIONWIDE. Here in the UK we've got nothing but crappy Netgear, TP-Link, Belkin, D-Link, wireless AP's and the only way to get one of these AMPED units is to order one from a US seller on ebay and we end up paying about a 3rd of the price we paid for the unit itself on shipping to send it to the UK.

    Ive used TP-Link Wireless AP's but they are extremely buggy even with firmware updates. Im currently using a Edimax AP which has been perfect since i got it but a more higher powered one would be nice...

    The only thing which comes anywhere close to an Amped Wireless AP is a Cisco Linksys WAP4410N. which i am very tempted to try out I must say.

    I now have this AP and it's very awesome the range is HARDCORE!!! seriously... I'm able to connect and access the net around 175 ft away! blows my netgear out of the water! very easy to configure and setup.. I am liking it. Only problem is the reboots needed for some settings... if they fix it they are perfect! ;-) good going amped!

    well Poking around ebay, sellers are shipping for $43-45. In total it means i would be paying $209.67. not really worth it when i could just buy a few Edimax 7416APn V2's which im currently using and just daisy chain them lol. though having too many repeaters will most likely add a bit of latency to the connection.

    repeaters will halve your B/W as well... and more to mess with....
