Linksys AC1200 overview

  • 1Description

Do you suffer from spotty Wi-Fi? The RE6700 AC1200 Amplify Dual-Band Wi-Fi Range Extender from Linksys is here to help. With this range extender all you need is a unoccupied electrical outlet and you can extend the reach of your current Wi-Fi network by up to 10,000 square feet. Operating on both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequencies, the RE6700 enhances your downloads and makes streaming HD content simple thanks to Crossband technology which allows both frequencies to be used simultaneously. In addition to dual band functionality, this range extender supports 802.11a/b/g/n/ac networking standards so you can connect virtually any Wi-Fi enabled device to your network. Once plugged in, you can take advantage of the integrated power outlet so you don't have to sacrifice an electrical outlet just to extend your Wi-Fi coverage.

Increase Your Wireless Range
With Dual-Band Wireless-AC, the AC1200 AMPLIFY eliminates dead zones and delivers greater range and consistent, high-speed connectivity. This allows you to stream media, play online games, and share content throughout your home.
Spot Finder Technology
Compatible with your smartphone, laptop, or tablet, Linksys Spot Finder Technology provides a unique visual representation of how far or how close the AC1200 AMPLIFY is in relation to your router. The three-step setup ensures that you'll get the maximum Wi-Fi signal to the far reaches of your home and outdoors.
Integrated Power Outlet
Thanks to an integrated power outlet, you can maintain use of the power outlet even when the AC1200 AMPLIFY is plugged in. The pass-through function on your range extender works exactly like a normal electrical outlet, and is not controlled in any way by the range extender.
Beamforming for Stronger, More Focused Wi-Fi Connections
Featuring dual wireless bands of 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz and Beamforming technology, the AC1200 AMPLIFY can deliver data transfer speeds up to N300 + AC867 Mbps for uninterrupted streaming, gaming, and more.
Crossband Technology to Maximize Wi-Fi Signals
Innovative Crossband technology allows for the simultaneous use of both bands, rather than relying on one radio band to do all the work. This allows information to be obtained on one band and transmitted on the other, resulting in reduced dropped data packets, faster media transfer speeds, and a stronger, more consistent signal throughout your home.
Enjoy Wi-Fi Audio Throughout Your Home
The AC1200 AMPLIFY extender's 3.5mm audio jack allows you to connect speakers to the range extender to stream music wirelessly from your iOS or Android smartphone, tablet, or laptop.
Universal Compatibility
The AC1200 AMPLIFY is compatible with virtually any Wi-Fi router or gateway, including hardware from Internet service providers, and there's no need to adjust your router's settings when installing the extender.
Gigabit Ethernet Port
The RE6700 comes equipped with a Gigabit Ethernet port, which is 10 times faster than Fast Ethernet. You can connect various devices such as game consoles, smart TVs, and more to your Wi-Fi network. It also helps provide more Wi-Fi bandwidth to your mobile devices.

Linksys AC1200 reviews

RE6700 AC1200 Amplify Dual-Band Wi-Fi Range Extender is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 336.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Internet speed boost Bought this a week ago, and couldn't be happier. Slow upload and download speeds were frustrating on a high-speed wi-fi connection. The Linksys RE6700 AC1200 AMPLIFY was fairly easy to set up once we realized that one important step had been left out of the Quick Start instructions. Easiest way to set up? Just use the Wi-Fi Protected Setup. Press the button on side of RE67000 then press button on your Wi-Fi Router. Make sure you set up a password to protect the extender.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Piece of Cake Installation I have used other range extenders in the past but wasn't happy with them. The installs were always difficult and often the extender would stop working and have to be reinstalled when we had power blips or it got unplugged. The Linksys RE6700 AC1200 AMPLIFY Dual-Band Wi-Fi Range Extender literally installs itself. It found my primary WiFi router signal and configured itself for both bands and then, using my smartphone, helped me find the perfect spot to place it in my home. It has worked flawlessly, even after power outages I seem to get often in my rural location.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Extender That Works I have several network extenders in a drawer because, they were difficult to setup and did not work as advertised. In contrast, the Linksys AC1200 is very easy to setup, and does a stellar job at extending not just the 2.4GHz band network, but also the 5GHz band network (I will have it soon). My signal strength with WIFI Network Analyzer went from -87dBm to -67dBm a 20dBm gain. I added it to my RV and I can now watch Netflix with no problems. My son-in-law has a week signal in the back of his house that will be be cured on his birthday with a Linksys 1200 WiFI range extender. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dependable wireless network range extender I added the wireless range extender to my network to improve the signal capabilities, and it is working advertised. I have a wireless weather station that uses a signal bridge to transfer the data collection to the Internet. I have connected the bridge to range extender utilizing an Ethernet cable to the provided port. It is working flawlessly and communicating with my router and allows me to observe real-time weather conditions at my home over the Internet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Wi-Fi extender The Linksys RE6700 AC1200 Amplify Dual-Band Wi-Fi Range Extender is an excellent addition to extending your signal from one side of your house to another. It has the following features capable of working with any router. It comes pack with cross band technology, 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz Dual band, Wi-Fi audio, and Beam-forming technology. According to the specifications it can expand Wi-Fi range up to 10,000SQ.FT. In my test cases I used both a Linksys router and another router (not linksys brand). The setup is very simple connect it to a wall outlet and once its powered up, connect to it using a laptop and finalize the configuration. The RE6700 comes with spot finder technology which lets you know if you are too close or too far from the router. In my test case I connected the RE6700 gigabit Ethernet port to the Linksys switch the SE4008 model. The devices that I connected to the switch was the new apple TV, Playstation 4, and computer. I started streaming and playing content all at once and not once did I have a bandwidth issue or packet loss. My second scenario was to connect the devices via Wi-Fi connected to the extender and start streaming content on all devices. Once again I didn't experience any issues. In conclusion, the RE6700 Wi-Fi offers cool features for those who are looking to extend their range to areas where the routers signal can reach to its full potential. The two antennas can be move around for better signal, it comes with a reset button, WPS button, 1 Gigabit Ethernet port, and one audio port to plug your favorite speaker system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very user friendly Set up of my new device was very easy. Once I was able to connect it to my main router, it extended WIFI signal throughout my whole house. I love the fact that when I go to the farthest part of my back yard, I take it with me and just connect it to an outlet in my garage where main route signal is poor, and just wait for it to connect automatically to the main router without me having to re-do the set up. Once it connects, it brings back WIFI signal to "excellent" extending internete access even to my driveway and farther than required.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! I was having trouble connecting to my wifi upstairs in my house. My signal was so low that it dropped the connection frequently. As soon as I received this product, I plugged it in an area that I thought would be a good spot. It immediately gave me feedback and now I have 5 bars consistently about 95%. Sometimes it goes to 4 bars, but SO MUCH better than before. Love it and would recommend it. Easy setup.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from RE6700 Seemed great at first. I purchased the RE6700 about a month ago. It is paired with an EA6500 wireless router. Setup was easy and I saw immediate range improvement; for about a week. About once a week speed drops to 10-15% of normal and I must reset and reinstall the device. Today, no mater what I do, my connection speed is 6 MBits. Usually my connection is 40-50 MBits. I am going to try and return this device to the store where purchased.
