Eliminates Dead Spots and Extends the Existing Wireless-AC CoverageUsing 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. By eliminating dead zones, the RE6500HG
gives you greater coverage so you can enjoy fast Wi-Fi speeds on your laptop or tablet--even if
you're outside on the patio or in the backyard.
The RE6500HG eliminates dead spots and delivers speeds up to 2.8 times faster than wireless-N extenders.
Adjustable High-Gain Antennas Amplify Wi-Fi SignalYou'll enjoy smooth HD video streaming and gaming--even if you're on the opposite side of
your house from your router and range extender--thanks to the RE6500HG's two external high
gain antennas, which further expand Wi-Fi coverage throughout your home. These high gain
antennas are designed to eliminate dead zones that can occur when walls or construction
materials obstruct the signal between your Wi-Fi devices and the extender. Since the antennas
are adjustable, you can adjust them to optimize your network performance.
Works with Any Wi-Fi Router or GatewayFeaturing next-generation wireless-AC technology, the RE6500HG 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.

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.
