Linksys has launched a dual-band wireless range extender, which is a highly capable range extender that will propagate internet signals to every nook and cranny of your house. Let us discuss how this range extender works and what features it possesses.
Usually, a Wi-Fi router is placed at a place where it coincides with people’s comfort zone. It is important to place the Wi-Fi router in the room where your devices receive the maximum signal strength. But, it is a well-known fact that Wi-Fi router has a certain limit beyond which the signal becomes weak.
To boost the signal strength, Wi-Fi range extenders have come into existence. Today, the situation is that there are so many companies manufacturing Wi-Fi range extenders, and people are buying it like hot cakes. Today, we are going to discuss one such Wi-Fi extender, i.e., Linksys N600, which is being used by thousands of customers in the US. Let us find out how this extender works:
If you have ever got a chance to setup a wireless router, then extending the connection using a Linksys RE4100W N600 range extender will be an easy job for you. The first thing that you need to do is connect to your range extender and then, follow the setup process. This is one last step that you’ll have to perform in order to bridge your native Wi-Fi network with a Linksys N600 range extender. Linksys boasts that it’s Wi-Fi range extender can easily connect with any router, but many people have tried to connect it to an ADSL router, but the extender was not able to detect ADSL router, thus forcing people to set up a LAN-based router.
Once you have successfully set up Linksys RE4100W N600 range extender, you can directly plug it into the wall socket, but keep in mind the area where the signal strength was not up to the mark. This Wi-Fi range extender provides support for dual-band Wi-Fi, which means you will get support for both, 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequency bands. But, an interesting fact about both frequency bands is that neither of those provides better speed than the other. But, when it comes to congestion, 5 GHz band has less congestion than 2.4 GHz band. You will find top laptops and smartphones using 5 GHz frequency band.
The available Ethernet port on the Wi-Fi range extender can be used to turn on an old PC with the internet by making use of LAN cable. There is a WPS button given in this range extender.
Linksys RE4100W N600 Wi-Fi range extender has a number of features, but one of the most highlighting features is the availability of 3.5mm jack for Wi-Fi audio. You can easily connect your speaker sets to play audio in a wireless manner. You can place the extender in the center of your room, as there are no wires to bother you. Linksys Wi-Fi range extender has the ability to connect a number of devices with your home internet network.
When it comes to performance, the Linksys range extender is a beast, as it provides support for up to 300 MBPS, but many people don’t get that much speed in their network connection. The extender sports a LED light on the front side, which is going to indicate that the range extender receives ample signals to amplify them. In order to receive a strong signal, you will see the green LED glowing, whereas, during weak signals, you will see an amber light.
The bottom line is that Linksys RE4100W N600 range extender is one gem of a Wi-Fi range extender, which if you install in your house will propagate strong internet signals in all corners of the house.
