The Linksys Dual-Band Wireless-N Range Extender, RE4000W is a wireless dual-band range extender with two (2) Ethernet ports that simultaneously work for both bands.  It is designed to resolve wireless coverage and extend the wireless signal for both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz networks.
Below are the product features and specifications of the RE4000W.

*The maximum distance or range that the range extender has depends on the technology that the device is using.  Since the RE4000W supports Wireless-N, -G, and -B standards, its maximum range is similar to the one used by the most recent Wireless-N standard which is 300 m or 1000 ft.

NOTE:  The maximum distance/range is onlyachieved if the device is set up in an environment that is devoid of any interference.  The router being used with the extender can also affect the range that it can provide.  For example, using RE4000W with a Wireless-G router would make the extender operate on a Wireless-G speed.
