WD logoWD has launched a selectable dual-band "N450" wireless range extender.

The My Net Wi-Fi Range Extender (WDBAPK0000NCH) has a dual-band 3x3 802.11abgn radio supporting link rates up to 450 Mbps (N450).

Setup can be done without logging into its web interface or running any installation software by joining any wireless network using Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS).

Optimum placement can then be done by using the signal strength indicator lights on the side of the product. Band selection can be done via a switch on the product.
