Amped Wireless logoAmped Wireless has unveiled a draft 802.11ac wireless range extender.

The REA20 High Power 700mW Dual Band AC Wi-Fi Range Extender is a simultaneous dual-band AC1200 class range extender supporting maximum link rates of 300 Mbps in the 2.4 GHz band and 867 Mbps in 5 GHz. It is said to work with any Wi-Fi router to receive and rebroadcast signals on both bands to extend range.

The REA20’s features look very similar to Amped’s RTA15 High Power 700mW Dual Band AC Wi-Fi Router that was introduced last month. It even has five Gigabit Ethernet ports that can all be used to connect wired devices and a USB 2.0 port that supports storage sharing.
