Product Overview
Main Features
  • Wi-Fi range extender
  • 4 ports
  • 802.11a/b/g/n
  • Dual Band
Featuring next-generation wireless-AC technology, the RE6500 is universally compatible with all Internet routers, including your service provider's router. Just connect it to your network, and you can access the Internet from any device, wherever you are in your home.

The RE6500 features simultaneous dual bands, which means it transmits at both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequencies at the same time. It extends 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi up to N300 Mbps + AC867 Mbps and reduces interference. So no matter which band your wireless devices use, they'll automatically connect to the best available band for the fastest possible performance.

Product Reviews
Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 104reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Up and Running in five minutes... When researching, I read all these horror stories online of hours spent with manufacturers & ISPs trying to get an extender to connect/perform, Threads upon threads in forums about this problem and that problem. All I wanted was an extender for God's sake! I chose this product for reputation and price. Opened the box, plug it in, followed the directions and three webpages later (5 min), up and running! This product met all expectations from the basic extender I was using (that had to be mounted outside a window to work). The router is four walls and 40 ft. away, yet, with this extender, my internet speeds are doubled, no more delay with my VoIP and I can leave it turned on inside. Totally satisfied! October 7, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Awesome Gadget! This thing is awesome. I couldn't find anything to extend my wifi enough but this gives me full strength all over my house and in the back yard. September 23, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Coverage We now have wireless from one end to the other of our 4,000 foot house. Before that we had spotty coverage from one end to the other. Great product. August 8, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by My new Linksys Wireless Extender We needed to extend WiFi here at home and elected to order the Extender. It was a good price and the delivery was in 2 days. It was not difficult to install and has provided a big increase in signal strength. Thank you , Linksys. August 2, 2016
