Traditional Range Extension Vs. Max-Stream Seamless Roaming

Traditional range extenders expand your network, but they create a host of other problems. Max-Stream™ Seamless Roaming works differently, delivering a more consistent signal. Take a look at how the two compare.

Range Extender

  • Often requires confusing multiple network names—one for your router and one for the repeated network.  
  • Requires you to manually switch between your router and range extender’s networks, depending on your location in the house.  
  • Can be difficult to place for optimal range, especially when competing signals and structural interference get in the way.  
  • May call for a time-consuming setup, requiring all Wi-Fi devices to be connected to the extended network.  
  • May not support MU-MIMO wireless technology, which is essential to stable streaming and gaming.  
  • May cause dropped connections as you move throughout your home.  

Max-Stream™ Seamless Roaming

  • Router and range extender share the same network name without causing performance issues.
  • With Max-Stream™ range extenders and routers, your device automatically switches to the strongest Wi-Fi signal, no matter where you are.    
  • Includes the easy-to-use Spot Finder software, which pinpoints the ideal location for optimal signal strength and coverage.  
  • With only one network name, you don’t need to connect each of your devices to the extended network after setup is complete.  
  • Supports Next-Gen MU-MUMO technology to ensure buffer-free 4K streaming, as well as Beamforming and Cross Band technology.  
  • Delivers a consistent connection as you move about your home, so you can FaceTime without glitches even as you transfer between networks.
