Linksys Expands its Lineup of Wireless Range Extenders
Wireless networking company Linksys launched new tools today that will help boost users’ WiFi signals and stay connected to the Internet no matter where they are in their home. The Linksys AC1200 BOOST EX Range Extender and Linksys AC750 BOOST Range Extender helps to boost WiFi signals in areas of a home or office where it might otherwise be weak or nonexistent.
Weak WiFi signals can be cause by blocking elements like a wall, mirror, refrigerator, or interference from other devices like a baby monitor, microwave, or other wireless networks, Linksys explained. The Range Extenders help enhance the wireless coverage and eliminate “dead sports” for a better WiFi experience throughout the home.
"Wireless signals from Wi-Fi routers can be affected by the number of walls they need to pass through, as well as by other wireless signals from neighbouring routers in densely populated areas," Justin Doucette, director of product management, Linksys, said in a statement. "A range extender can help extend the reach of a Wi-Fi signal to all the areas that you want to access the internet, such as distant bedrooms, basements, or even the backyard. Our new range extenders come with Spot Finder, a simple approach to placing the range extender in the most optimal spot, which is halfway between the router and the dead spot."
