The multi-functional RP-AC56 Wireless-AC1200 Dual-Band Access Point / Repeater / Media Bridge from ASUS can be a wireless hotspot, Wi-Fi adapter, or network extender. With the built-in Gigabit Ethernet port you can connect an active Internet connection to the port and provide Wi-Fi access for your wireless equipped device. For a device that does not come with built-in Wi-Fi, connect it to the Gigabit Ethernet port on the RP-AC56 and use it as an adapter to connect to your existing wireless network. In repeater mode, this ASUS Wi-Fi adapter connects to your current wireless network and strengthens the signal allowing it to reach distances previously out of reach.

Setup and configuration of the RP-AC56 is simple with the WPS button. Simply press the button on the ASUS Wi-Fi adapter and on your router to pair the devices. Once connected the integrated signal strength indicator helps you to find the sweet spot between your existing wireless network and where you want to extend your network to. Once configured you can take advantage of dual-band connectivity on both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequencies as well as 802.11a/b/g/n/ac network support. With a Wi-Fi data throughput of up to 1167 Mbps you can stream HD quality multimedia content, transfer large files, and more.

Faster Wi-Fi that Goes Further
The RP-AC56 wireless repeater has two powerful external MIMO antennas that help to eliminate signal dead zones and improve the coverage of any existing wireless router. It works as a repeater, which means it can extend wireless networking to every corner of the home - even to those difficult, hard-to-reach spots. With fast 802.11ac speeds up to 1167 Mbps, it's ideal for extending your existing 802.11ac Wi-Fi network.
Ultra-Fast Wireless Speeds
Powered by the 802.11ac chipset, the RP-AC56 delivers ultra-fast wireless-AC speeds up to 867 Mbps on the 5 GHz band - that's 3 times faster than standard wireless-N. This high-performance wireless connectivity lets you enjoy ultra-smooth online gaming, snappier web surfing and other bandwidth-hungry tasks without a wired connection.
Long-Range External Antennas
Much longer range and stronger transmissions, delivered by the two external antennas and an enhanced power amplifier, make the RP-AC56 perfect for larger homes and offices. You get all the speed benefits of fast 802.11ac Wi-Fi, along with improved coverage.
One-Press Setup
RP-AC56 wireless repeater installation doesn't require a CD or even a mouse and keyboard. Simply press the WPS button and setup is complete. Optimized performance is assured for a seamless and smooth Internet experience. For advanced settings, you can connect the RP-AC56 to a PC via an Ethernet cable and access the web-based configuration menu directly, with no disc or app needed. You can even set it up wirelessly from a tablet or smartphone.
Find the Best Location with Integrated Signal Indicator
For best results, RP-AC56 needs to be within range of a stable router signal, and should be placed between the router and the location where you need better wireless coverage. The RP-AC56 works best when it is receiving a strong wireless signal from the router - you can check this by using the signal strength indicator on the front panel.
Stream Music with ASUS AiPlayer App
You can connect speakers to the RP-AC56 wireless repeater and stream your favorite music direct from any mobile device that has the ASUS AiPlayer app installed. It's compatible with a wide range of multimedia formats and delivers a smooth streaming experience, virtually anywhere in the home. The RP-AC56 can also stream music from Mac and iOS devices with no need for extra software.
Convenient Rotating Mains Plug
With the ingenious rotating mains plug, the RP-AC56 can be positioned upright for optimum performance no matter what the orientation of the power socket.
3-in-1 Repeater / Access Point / Media Bridge
The RP-AC56 has two more convenient modes to make it even more flexible. As well as a repeater, it can also work as a wireless access point (AP) or as a media bridge. In AP mode, it can be connected to any wired LAN - for example, a hotel's Internet connection - to create a personal Wi-Fi hotspot, allowing the Internet connection to be accessed from laptops, phones or other Wi-Fi devices. In media bridge mode, it can be connected to any Ethernet-compatible device - such as a smart TV, multimedia player, game console or PC - to give it Wi-Fi capability.
ASUS Express Way Boosts Performance
ASUS ExpressWay uses the dual-band capability of the RP-AC56 to create a super-efficient connection with improved performance and reliability. In normal mode, the RP-AC56 uses the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands simultaneously for connecting to devices, giving the widest compatibility with devices and routers. As long as at least one device - or your router - supports 5 GHz operation, ExpressWay can dedicate one band for connecting to the router and the other band for connecting to the device. This gives you a great performance boost for data-intensive tasks such as HD video streaming or online gaming, and also reduces the chance of losing the connection due to interference.
Roaming Assist for Stable Connections
With hassle-free Roaming Assist technology, you never have to switch connections manually between the RP-AC56 and your ASUS router as you move around the home. Once you enable this function, your device will connect automatically to the strongest Wi-Fi signal, whether it's from the router or the repeater. This ensures that you always get the most reliable connection wherever you are in the house.
