In addition to the great prosperity of smartphones, the development of mobile networks has brought a word of fire – “Is there a Wi-Fi?” But we all know that the traffic charges are still not cheap, that why we rely on the home Wi-Fi networks.
However, due to the different types of households, most of the big cities are relatively small, and most routers now can cover the whole house. However, the size of small houses is generally larger, not to mention the vast rural areas with small houses. Coupled with the barrier of the wall, there will always be a room where Wi-Fi signal is not so good. Especially concentrated in the bedroom, it happens most of the time that we want to lie in bed and get access to the Internet but the signal is not good, can only stand up to the door to have a good signal. This becomes very irritating.
But thanks to the latest advancements in technology, now we have various Wi-Fi extensions products. After our research we came up with this one extraordinary good gadget – Linksys extender RE7000.
In theory, the Wi-Fi extension Linksys RE7000 class product is really not a new product. After all, all routers have relay and bridge functions. Since a single function is made into a product, the ease of use is even more important. .
Classic blue and white color, it is not difficult to find from the packaging that Linksys RE7000 supports 802.11ac wireless standard, the speed can reach 1733Mbps in 5GHz frequency band and 300Mbps in 2.4GHz frequency to achieve AC1900+ level wireless speed.In addition to the convenient configuration of the mobile phone, Linksys RE7000’s biggest charm lies in seamless roaming support, which realizes that there is no need to switch wireless networks between two routes, and it can automatically connect to the wireless network with strong signal, and the whole process
No manual participation is required, nor does it affect the network access of the terminal.The plug adopts a plug-in design, and the structural strength is strengthened by the buckle fixing to avoid poor touch after replacement.The front is simple and clear, crystallized by plastic material, and the LED indicator on the bottom is judged by the yellow and green colors.The side design has a large opening to enhance heat dissipation, in addition to the WPS button and reset button.A single Gigabit LAN port is reserved at the bottom, which supports wired seamless wireless transmission. LED lights are designed on the LAN port to facilitate viewing connection status.
Configuration Of the Gadget
The Linksys RE7000 is very easy to configure. The first time you connect to the linksys extender setup portal with your phone, you can open the browser.It can automatically identify whether the current connection status is wired or wireless, enter the corresponding seamless expansion configuration page, and use Linksys SpotFinder technology to evaluate the placement position for best results.
The setup page also has only two words of comments – concise. First set an administrative password, search the router to enter the password connection, the settings are complete. Next, wait for the expander to connect, and if it succeeds, you can go online.
Insert the Wi-Fi expander into any USB-powered device, let it start working, open the phone or computer to connect to the Wi-Fi signal at the beginning of Wi-Fi expander, and the configuration page will pop up automatically if there is no pop-up configuration page. You can also enter the settings page by entering extender.linksys.com at any browser URL input.
Use the Wi-Fi expander, find the Wi-Fi signal name, fill in the password, and then a moment later. We found that there is a Wi-Fi signal with the PLUS suffix of the target Wi-Fi name. Connected, successfully connected to the Internet. After the configuration is completed, the login to the management page can realize the management of QOS, etc.
Since the 2.4G frequency is greatly affected by the surrounding wireless, the performance test of the 5G frequency band is mainly carried out here. One of the two computers is connected by a network cable, and the other one is tested by the ASUS PCIE-AC88, in order to obtain a more accurate numerical device. Without wall penetration, RE7000 uses network cable expansion and wireless extension to compare before and after. The main route is extended by RE7000 using LINKSYS EA7500 V2.
