Linksys Ac1200 Dual Band Wi-fi Range Extender
AC1200 DB DB Wi-Fi Range Extender & Wireless Bridge
The RE6700 is a plug-in extender designed for three-prong wall outlets. At 4.6 by 2.6 by 1.5 inches (HWD), it's slightly bigger than the D-Link DAP-1350 (3.6 by 2.2 by 1.3 inches), but its bulk doesn't prevent access to the adjacent socket on your wall outlet. In fact, it offers a pass-through socket, which means you don't have to sacrifice an outlet at all.
The RE6700 is an 802.11ac range extender with a maximum link rate of 867 Mbps. It operates on the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands and features Beamforming and Crossband technologies. Rather than sending a broad signal in all directions, Beamforming allows the extender to focus its signal directly at a client device to help improve performance. Crossband technology uses both bands (2.4GHz and 5GHz) to communicate with the router and automatically chooses the best available band in order to boost performance.
The management interface is easy to use and offers a generous selection of settings, including Quality of Service (QoS) and Security (WEP, WPA, WPA2) settings. On the Basic page, you change the SSID for each band and assign a security protocol, and the Site survey page lets you view all available networks, as well as their frequency band, signal strength, and security protocol. The Crossband page allows you to enable automatic band switching or you can manually turn Crossband on and off for each band. The Administration page lets you back up and restore configuration settings, run diagnostics, change passwords, and view traffic logs. The Status page displays Ethernet and wireless LAN statistics and network address (IP) information.
