With support for the 802.11ac Wi-Fi protocol, the BR-6478AC V2 Dual-Band Wireless-AC1200 Gigabit Router from Edimax is capable of achieving wireless data transfer rates of up to 1200 Mbps. In addition to support for 802.11ac Wi-Fi, users can also take advantage of dual-band connectivity allowing more bandwidth intensive tasks such as streaming multimedia content, transferring large files, and more to be allocated to the less congested 5 GHz frequency. For devices requiring an Ethernet connection this Edimax router comes equipped with four Gigabit Ethernet ports as well as a single USB 2.0 port to attach USB compatible storage devices to the network.

Configuration and management of this Edimax router has been greatly simplified thanks to Smart iQ Setup and iQoS Bandwidth Management. You can set up the router without the need for a CD as Smart iQ Setup is completely web-based and is also accessible through a smartphone, iPad, tablet, or computer. Once configured, iQoS Bandwidth Management makes it easy to allocate bandwidth throughout the network to ensure tasks like streaming video have the necessary bandwidth to operate smoothly. The network administrator can even set up guest networks, restrict access to specific portions of the network, prevent access to websites, and more.

Enhanced Wireless Networking
The Edimax BR-6478AC V2 router supports the IEEE 802.11ac wireless standard, meaning higher data rates in the 5 GHz band. With 300 Mbps speeds in the 2.4 GHz band and 867 Mbps speeds in 5 GHz, the BR-6478AC V2 is ideal for HD video streaming and large file transfers. The router is also backward compatible with 802.11a/b/g/n to ensure compatibility with legacy Wi-Fi devices.
Concurrent Dual-Band Wi-Fi Connectivity
The Edimax BR-6478AC V2 router provides simultaneous 2.4 GHz (802.11n) and 5 GHz (802.11ac) wireless network connectivity for maximum flexibility of use.
VPN Access for Privacy & Security
Built-in Virtual Private Network (VPN) support for easy VPN access on all your devices. VPNs enable you to access secure, remote networks from anywhere and can offer privacy and security online.
Multi-Function USB Port
Connect a USB hard-drive and enjoy your own private cloud storage. Keep content on your central storage and access it from any device on your network, such as movie and TV streaming to PCs or smart TVs, or for regular backups of vital data. With the built-in VPN function you can even access your network remotely when you're away from home. It can also be used with an FTP server or printer, so any devices on your network can print over your Wi-Fi.
Smart iQ Setup
This Edimax router features iQ Setup for smart, automatic and quick installation with no CD required, no smartphone app to download, and no PC required.
5-in-1 Router, Access Point, Range Extender, Wireless Bridge, WISP
The BR-6478AC V2 can work as router, access point, range extender, wireless bridge or WISP. Just configure the mode you need for your network environment using the smart iQ Setup wizard.
High Gain Antennas for Better Wi-Fi Performance
Employing two external high-gain fixed antennas, the BR-6478AC V2 provides powerful 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz dual-band signal strength and enhances Wi-Fi range, providing signal penetration through walls and floors across your home or office.
Edimax iQoS
iQoS is Edimax's solution for a quicker, easier, and more effective way to manage Internet bandwidth. While Quality of Service (QoS) functionality is a common feature in routers across the market, typically only advanced users have the knowledge required to set up the complex parameters. Edimax though has redesigned QoS with user-friendliness and accessibility in mind. A simple and intuitive user interface allows users to arrange bandwidth priority settings in just a few clicks. With iQoS, you can enjoy gaming, video streaming, VoIP applications and BT clients at the same time without the usual nightmare of lag and interruptions. An original, efficient and effective means of managing your Internet bandwidth.
Multi-SSID & VLAN Support
Multi-SSID enables users to configure up to ten separate SSIDs (2.4 GHz x 5 and 5 GHz x 5) in order to group and manage users according to your requirements. In addition, each SSID can be assigned a different VLAN ID, so users with multiple VLANs can manage the network access level of each SSID - ensuring security and protecting confidential or critical network resources.
Access point mode only
Guest Network
Supports a guest network to provide connectivity while isolating guests from your primary network.
