Getting to know the Linksys WAP750AC AC750 Wi-Fi Access Point

The Linksys WAP750AC AC750 Wireless Access Point is the latest AC-series access point that utilizes Cross-Band Technology.  This maximizes simultaneous use of both bands (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz) for high speed data transfer and uninterrupted streaming and gaming.  It receives a signal on one (1) frequency and transmits simultaneously on another channel for the purpose of full duplex communication.  Now you can do a video conference and share files without interruption, even when the rest of your family is gaming and streaming videos.  The Linksys WAP750AC offers the option to use it as a Wireless Range Extender or a Wired Access Point.
