Beamforming for Stronger, More Focused Wi-Fi Connections

Featuring dual wireless bands of 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz and Beamforming technology, the AC1200 AMPLIFY can deliver data transfer speeds up to N300 + AC867 Mbps* for uninterrupted streaming, gaming, and more.

Crossband Technology Maximizes Wi-Fi Signals

Innovative Crossband technology allows for the simultaneous use of both bands, rather than relying on one radio band to do all the work. This allows information to be obtained on one band and transmitted on the other, resulting in reduced dropped data packets, faster media transfer speeds, and a stronger, more consistent signal throughout your home.

Stream music

Enjoy Wi-Fi Audio Throughout Your Home

The AC1200 AMPLIFY extender's 3.5mm audio jack allows you to connect speakers to the range extender to stream music wirelessly from your iOS or Android smartphone, tablet, or laptop.

Universal Compatibility

The AC1200 AMPLIFY is compatible with virtually any Wi-Fi router or gateway, including hardware from Internet service providers, and there's no need to adjust your router's settings when installing the extender.

Universal Compatibility

Gigabit Ethernet Port

We equipped the RE6700 with a Gigabit Ethernet port, which is 10 times faster than Fast Ethernet. You can connect various devices such as game consoles, smart TVs, and more to your Wi-Fi network. It also helps provide more Wi-Fi bandwidth to your mobile devices.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Wi-Fi extender The Linksys RE6700 AC1200 Amplify Dual-Band Wi-Fi Range Extender is an excellent addition to extending your signal from one side of your house to another. It has the following features capable of working with any router. It comes pack with cross band technology, 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz Dual band, Wi-Fi audio, and Beam-forming technology. According to the specifications it can expand Wi-Fi range up to 10,000SQ.FT. In my test cases I used both a Linksys router and another router (not linksys brand). The setup is very simple connect it to a wall outlet and once its powered up, connect to it using a laptop and finalize the configuration. The RE6700 comes with spot finder technology which lets you know if you are too close or too far from the router. In my test case I connected the RE6700 gigabit Ethernet port to the Linksys switch the SE4008 model. The devices that I connected to the switch was the new apple TV, Playstation 4, and computer. I started streaming and playing content all at once and not once did I have a bandwidth issue or packet loss. My second scenario was to connect the devices via Wi-Fi connected to the extender and start streaming content on all devices. Once again I didn't experience any issues. In conclusion, the RE6700 Wi-Fi offers cool features for those who are looking to extend their range to areas where the routers signal can reach to its full potential. The two antennas can be move around for better signal, it comes with a reset button, WPS button, 1 Gigabit Ethernet port, and one audio port to plug your favorite speaker system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful and Easy setup Gamers dream I received the RE6700 AC range extender for my honest review.\ To start off with this little device really packs a punch. I have a 3700 Sq Ft home and my Linksys ea6500 maxstream covers that quite well my problem is out in the yard and garage i have a weak or no signal so i plugged this in towards the garage side of the house setup took literally 5 mins tops and now the garage area has full signal AND my whole back pool area too. After this setup i thought about hooking up close to my PS4 and use the lan port thats on the extender and try and see if using this lan connection (even though its through the extenders wifi just to see if the speeds are better compared to the PS4's built in, less than, wifi card. OMG this is a gamer's dream. I put up screen shots of the speed with PS4 wifi compared to lan cable off the extenders wifi just look at the speed increase. its exactly the same as being hard wired with this devices speeds. so basically if you have a ac router you can use this extender to get hardwired speeds through wireless any where in your home. also the antenna's are adjustable not only up and down but a full swivel on a 2 point axis. totally sweet. it also has a 3.5mm jack to hook up to a speaker set up and it does work well. hooked it up to a 200 watt system and could play music on it form anywhere i had wifi. 500ft away during my test. Now i am a very picky reviewer and Im a flaw finder. heres my pros and cons pros: took 5 mins to set up with the easy to follow guide. you have alot of settings for advanced users but also you can hook it up and leave it it works perfect Of course to play ps4 at hard wired speeds is amazing on its own. it will connect to any router doesnt have to be AC but you will be limited to your routers speed and channels has beam forming technology 5ghz and 2.4 ghz channels Cons: just one. the music streaming didnt have any info on how to do it. easy to hook up just plug in the jack to the extender then plug it into the sound sytem How i got it to work: i have a galaxy s7 edge I used quick connect /scan for nearby devices and it found the range extender i clicked on it and it let me pick as many songs as i wanted to play but this info is nowhere to be found and maybe a different phone or tablet may have a different way over all this will bring Powerfully fast wifi to any dead zone and just like it says up to 10,000 sq ft. great Job Linksys

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great addition to my home setup. I got this to help coverage in my shop at home. We've got a really nice Linksys home router already but do get a lot of interference out by the road/where the garage is. This ended up being perfect for my needs. Actually extends coverage to almost 3/4 of the way down to the gas station at the end of the street. Easily full coverage out to the garage and clear out into the fields beyond. I was pretty surprised it reached that far. I rated this 5 stars based on the value for the money. Its just the right amount of coverage without breaking the bank. However, if you really want some impressive extended coverage for only $50 more check out the RE7000 extender. It really blew my mind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Wi-Fi Range Extender and Features Received my Linksys RE6700 AC1200 Amplify Dual-Band Wi-Fi Range Extender a week ago. I am now experiencing great results in Wi-Fi coverage throughout my home and outside my home. I am truly amazed at the range results I am achieving now. It features both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz Beamforming technology with speeds up to N300 + AC867 Mb/s providing speed and reliability wherever you are. The Spot Finder Technology made setting up the range extender quick and easy. The RE6700 AC1200 Amplify Dual Band Range Extender works with any Router and can extend the range of your router up to 10,000 ft eliminating dead zones in and around my home.. One of the coolest features that I really enjoy is the 3.5 mm audio jack located on the bottom of the extender. By connecting external speakers I am able to stream music right to the extender from my Android phone. I also like that the extender has the Pass Through technology so that I can still utilize both wall outlets that the extender is plugged into. Another great feature is the Ethernet port which is also located on the bottom of the extender which I can connect other devices to via a wired connection. Overall, I am very happy and satisfied with the Linksys AC1200 Amplify Dual-Band range extender and it's performance. What a powerful little device it is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Internet speed boost Bought this a week ago, and couldn't be happier. Slow upload and download speeds were frustrating on a high-speed wi-fi connection. The Linksys RE6700 AC1200 AMPLIFY was fairly easy to set up once we realized that one important step had been left out of the Quick Start instructions. Easiest way to set up? Just use the Wi-Fi Protected Setup. Press the button on side of RE67000 then press button on your Wi-Fi Router. Make sure you set up a password to protect the extender.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Above Expectations I must say I was a little apprehensive about this product, but I have used Linksys in the past and so I thought I would give it a go. When I first saw it I was not sure of the setup and thought that it needed a cable to work and other tools, but to my surprise it was simple. Find a wall outlet and plug it in. When the light stops blinking grab your phone, iPad, or computer go to extender.linksys.com and follow the steps. The set up will even tell you where the extender should be placed. In my case, I had a couple of rooms on the other side of the house that had poor reception, and by placing the extender in that part of the house before the reception dropped, it fixed the reception and improved the reception to like I was standing next to the router. Simple, convenient and works like a charm. But the love does not stop there. We had to go to the grandparents’ house for the weekend and while they do live out in the sticks they do have very slow internet speed, 2 Mbps. But the house is not good for reception (See photos), especially where we stay in the house. So when I go there I am not able to check my emails or anything, literally a tech-free zone. So this time down I packed up the extender and thought I would check it out. I was shocked, to state the simple, I had to reset the extender so it would look for the new modem, and that was very simple. Then I set it up again, which was, again, simple; And I was very surprised by the results. Not only could I now do what I needed on the internet, but it seemed to improve the speed, a little, when I did an internet speed test. This product works great and I must say, I love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A simple solution to a common problem! For many years my home has had its share of trouble with weak Wi-Fi signals in a couple of rooms but no more! After following the quick start guide instructions I opted to connect an Ethernet cable to the range extender and in just a few minutes I was set up and running. By using the spot finder feature on my cell phone I was able to find the optimal spot for placement of the range extender. Now there are no longer weak Wi-Fi spots in my home! This product saved me a ton of work since I was planning on hardwiring all of my rooms due to weak signal strength including trying to route wires around in a very limited attic space. The audio jack on the bottom is also a nice touch for streaming music to speakers as well. This product's footprint takes up a small space but it's features are impressive indeed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dependable wireless network range extender I added the wireless range extender to my network to improve the signal capabilities, and it is working advertised. I have a wireless weather station that uses a signal bridge to transfer the data collection to the Internet. I have connected the bridge to range extender utilizing an Ethernet cable to the provided port. It is working flawlessly and communicating with my router and allows me to observe real-time weather conditions at my home over the Internet.
