Trying to maintain Wi-Fi coverage throughout a house (particularly a large house) or office can be a challenge. We’ve written about some of the options, such as the Amped Wireless SR300 Wi-Fi Range Extender, and the in-wall WiPNET system. These are good options, but each has its limitations, whether its the need for multiple units placed strategically around your home, or the requirement for professional installation with an in-wall system. What if you just want one unit with a powerful reach?
Amped Wireless, the company behind the extender mentioned above, has a new option. The R20000G is a high-power Wireless-N dual band router with an advertised coverage area of up to 10,000 square feet thanks to its 600mW of power. The router offers dual bands for different needs: 2.4GHz for highest range, and 5 GHz for the least interference. For applications where wireless isn’t a concern, the router also provides four gigabit Ethernet ports and a USB 2.0 port for connecting an NAS drive.
The Amped Wireless R20000G will be released May 21, for a price of $179.99 USD.
