Netgear Tri-Band WiFi Extender Offers Better, Seamless Coverage
Netgear is adding a new Mesh WiFi Range extender to its lineup, promising "increased speeds… even at the farthest corners of your property" thanks to their FastLane3 technology. The Nighthawk X4S Tri-Band WiFi Range Extender, or EX7500 for short, uses Tri-band WiFi to expand coverage up to an additional 1500 square feet while still using the same wireless network as the user's router and maximizing available internet speeds.
The device also offers features such as Smart Roaming, which "intelligently connects your mobile devices to the most robust WiFi signal" to allow the user to "experience superior streaming in every corner of your home." Boasting a quad-core processor to improve performance, the product can even be accessed through the company's WiFi analytics app for Android, from where the network status, signal strength, and channel interference can be optimized.
David Henry, senior vice president of Connected Home Products at NETGEAR, explained that “if you love the advanced features of your current router or are locked into the modem-router provided by your ISP, the Nighthawk X4S Extender with FastLane3 Technology offers you an easy way to extend your home WiFi by adding a mesh network without overhauling your network,” adding that “Now NETGEAR provides two WiFi extender solutions that boost your existing WiFi like no other extender. [...] By adding one of these Nighthawk X4S extenders to your network, you can improve speed, range, and performance for all your connected devices around your home from the garage to the backyard without the added anxiety of changing out your original WiFi equipment.”
With more and more connected devices being brought into every corner of the home, it is easy to see why a strong WiFi signal throughout the house is important to many consumers. Netgear's new product seems to introduce a variety of innovative solutions, even though they do come with a somewhat larger price tag.
The EX7500 with FastLane3 and Smart Roaming (EX7500) is available worldwide from major retailers at a MRSP of $179.
