The RE6500 eliminates dead spots and delivers speeds up to 2.8 times faster than wireless-N extenders.
Eliminates Dead Spots and Extends the Existing Wireless-AC Coverage
Using the Linksys Range Extender Max, you can easily extend the range of your existing wireless router to create a strong Wi-Fi signal for all the devices in and around your home, including smartphones, tablets, ultrabooks, and more. Greater coverage allows you to enjoy fast Wi-Fi speeds on your laptop or tablet--even if you're outside on the patio or in the backyard.
Works with Any Wi-Fi Router or Gateway
Featuring next-generation wireless-AC technology, the RE6500 is universally compatible with all Internet routers, including your service provider's router. Just connect it to your network, and you can access the Internet from any device, wherever you are in your home.
Thanks to high-speed wireless-AC technology, the RE6500 creates Wi-Fi speeds that are up to three times faster than wireless-N. You also get double the channel bandwidth, with 80MHz wide channels providing more room for more data to flow faster than ever. With this extra speed, you can stream HD-quality videos and play online games seamlessly without interruptions or lag.
Simultaneous Dual Band Wi-Fi
The RE6500 features simultaneous dual bands, which means it transmits at both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequencies at the same time. It extends 2.4 and 5GHz 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 now receive information on one band and transmit on the other, reducing dropped data packets and delivering a stronger, more consistent signal throughout your home.
Establish a fast, secure wired connection to your desktop or laptop computer with four available Gigabit Ethernet ports.
Gigabit Ethernet Ports for Blazing-Fast Wired Connections
Along with wireless connectivity, we equipped the RE6500 with four Gigabit Ethernet ports, which are 10 times faster than Fast Ethernet. You can connect up to four devices such as game consoles, smart TVs, and more to your Wi-Fi network.
Music Extender: Stream Music through Your Speaker System
