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.

Product Reviews
Linksys RE6500 - Wi-Fi range extender is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 124.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Easy Setup I bought this to replace my outdated Cisco bridge. The setup was simple and I had it up and running in no time. It works great.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not buy this trash You get 10% of your wifi strength. Ive tried every imaginable troubleshoot. Bought a TPLink instead. Flawless and full speed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from close to worthless I bought this to extend wiress range for visiting granddaughters devices - it sort of works within one room of the main router but does not work two rooms away with line of sight between it and the router through windows - all of 30 feet away. My mac book gets full reception throughout the house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great reliability and performance. Got two of them refurbished and used them as a wireless bridge for my IP cameras. Has been running 24/7 for a year now, never a hiccup. It does run a bit warm but as long as it's reliable I don't really care. Would buy again in a heartbeat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Need assistance but great stuff I needed to call in for some advice but once this AC1200 was up and running it's been super. I'd give 5 stars if it wasn't for the lack of instructions but very happy so far with the results The reliability is still in question for this short length of time but excellent so far

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Setup wants me to move the extender closer to the router. I got this to get away from the router. No printed info on the purpose of the ethernet ports - obviously they are only for output, because it would not recognize the existing network. Going to return it tomorrow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Linksys RE6500 We shopped around for a wifi range extender to project a strong signal to our upstairs (we have a 3,000 sqft home and the shape of it prevents the wifi signal to reach all rooms at a good strength), and found the Linksys RE6500 to be the "right tool for the job". This wifi range extender is reasonably priced, very easy to setup, the signal is strong enough to reach all of our rooms upstairs, and importantly, the wifi signal does not drop off throughout the day and night of usage. This is a good wifi range extender to buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I tought I was computer say until... It took me a while before I was able to figure out how to make it work. I started by using my wireless WiFi pad and looking for a linksys ap to no avail then after various attempts I ended up connecting my main desk top computer to its ethernet port and then it finally became a part of my extended network. It works great now and it does what it is supposed to do. I am glad that it worked out well.
