With Dual-Band Wireless-AC, the AC1200 AMPLIFY eliminates dead zones and delivers greater range and consistent, high-speed connectivity. This allows you to stream media, play online games, and share content throughout your home.


Spot Finder

Find Perfect Placement with Spot Finder Technology

Compatible with your smartphone, laptop, or tablet, our exclusive Spot Finder Technology provides a unique visual representation of how far or how close the AC1200 AMPLIFY is in relation to your router.

Integrated Power Outlet

Thanks to an integrated power outlet, you can maintain use of the power outlet even when the AC1200 AMPLIFY is plugged in. The pass-through function on your range extender works exactly like a normal electrical outlet, and is not controlled in any way by the range extender.


Linksys AC1200

Beamforming for Stronger, More Focused WiFi 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 WiFi 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 WiFi 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 WiFi 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 WiFi network. It also helps provide more WiFi bandwidth to your mobile devices.

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 Easy setup, fantastic results I'm pretty impressed. The AC1200 WiFi range extender has extended my WiFi signal to my garage which previously I had none. It has worked flawlessly without any signal loss or dropouts. The garage is 30 ft from the house and have never had signal that far. The download speed from my router is 74 mbps, the extender speed is 56 mbps. Listening to pandora in my garage has made this the perfect solution. It has greatly increased the range Of my WiFi. Setup was painless and very easy. After entering the routers password I was up and running in a matter of minutes. Streaming music to where I couldn't before is fantastic, and am very pleased with the results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Piece of Cake Installation I have used other range extenders in the past but wasn't happy with them. The installs were always difficult and often the extender would stop working and have to be reinstalled when we had power blips or it got unplugged. The Linksys RE6700 AC1200 AMPLIFY Dual-Band Wi-Fi Range Extender literally installs itself. It found my primary WiFi router signal and configured itself for both bands and then, using my smartphone, helped me find the perfect spot to place it in my home. It has worked flawlessly, even after power outages I seem to get often in my rural location.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to Install and it works The first thing that I liked was how easy it was to setup the Linksys RE6700 AC1200 AMPLIFY Dual-Band Wi-Fi Range Extender. After running the configuration wizard on my web browser, connecting to my existing wireless network, I was able to setup both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands. The performance is excellent. I was able to get a strong signal back in my bedroom with no lost of speed. A speed test reported 114mbps down and 12mbps up. Another plus is the integrated power outlet which allows me to use the power outlet without any interference from the extender at all. The Spot Finder was very useful in locating the right placement for the extender.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wi-Fi Extender Works Great! I live in an older 3 story house with a big back porch on the back. We spend a lot of time outside but really wanted Wi-Fi to watch Netflix etc. My router (Linksys WRT 1900ACS) is on the 3rd floor on the front of the house so my signal has never worked outside at the back. BUT....the RE6700 Extender has solved the problem. I can watch Netflix on my phone, PC or smart TV on the back porch now. I was out of town when the product was delivered but it only took 5-6 minutes to do the setup (used my iPhone) and get everything connected. Could not have worked any better or been any simpler. So far it's worked great. Just wish I had done this earlier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replaced a NetGear and Beats it Hands Down With my high end NetGear extender I had to burn CDs and take them to a hard wire computer to move my image files up to Fine Art America. Luckily the Netgear quit working and Best Buy honored the extended warranty we bought with this Linksys extender. This extender has no problem moving the image file up and is actually nearly as fast as the hard wire. Problem is that Best Buy no longer offers an extended warranty ON ANY EXTENDERS we tried. This coupled with a very expensive 1 year service agreement with NeatGear drove me to Linksys. Now to find out what the cost of a yearly on line help contract is. I hope it's better than 139.99 a year!

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 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.
