Recently TP-Link has added the RE305 Range Extender to its lineup of networking products. It connects to your Wi-Fi router wirelessly and then expands its signal to areas without coverage while reducing signal interface to ensure there is no disconnection.
The extender will be extremely helpful when there are many an obstacle “blocking” the signal when you’re working somewhat on the fringes of the WiFi signal area. With dual band functionality, the device is able to operate over both the 2.4GHz (300Mbps) and 5GHz (867Mbps) bands. This makes it suitable for both low bandwidth work like mails, light browsing and intensive tasks like HD streaming, multiplayer gaming.
Installation is made easy with the Intelligent Signal light which helps find the best location to install the range extender. It can instantly connect to your router with just a press of the router’s WPS button and then pressing the extender’s RE/WPS button. If the router’s WPS button isn’t available then follow the quick setup instructions found on the extender’s web management page.
You can also use TP-Link’s free Tether app available on Android or iOS to setup the range extender. It also provides access to advanced network management. Additionally, you can plugin the Ethernet cable into the RE305 to turn your wired internet connection into a dual band wireless access point.
Priced at Rs.3,299, the device is available for sale offline and soon will be sold online as well.
