Linksys AC1750 WiFi Range Extender


Boost WiFi range for better coverage and signal strength with the Linksys AC1750 WiFi Range Extender (RE6800). The AC1750 Range Extender extends your existing WiFi range up to 9,000 square feet, so you can enjoy a stronger WiFi signal in every room of your house--and even outdoors.


The AC1750 Range Extender is compatible with all WiFi routers, including your existing unit or those from service providers. There's no need to modify your router's settings when installing the extender--you won't have to touch your router at all.


Enjoy uninterrupted streaming, smooth online gaming, and more thanks to this range extender's simultaneous wireless dual bands. The AC1750 Range Extender features data transfer speeds up to AC1750, ensuring fast and responsive connections across all your devices.

Easy setup options for optimal placement


Two simple ways to setup:

  • Simply press the Push Button Connect feature on the AC1750 Range Extender to automatically sync it to your router.
  • Simple setup from a smartphone, tablet, or laptop.

Find the optimal location for the range extender using Spot Finder Technology.

  • If placed too far from an existing router, a range extender may not expand WiFi or WiFi may be spotty. Spot Finder helps ensure your Linksys range extender is in the right spot.


Crossband Technology 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.


The AC1750 Range Extender automatically receives firmware updates from Linksys as they are released, helping maintain up-to-date security.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to Install and Works Well I have had the Range Extender in operation for more than a week. It works seamlessly and covers areas of the house that had inconsistent signal. Set up was quite simple with the easy-to-follow instructions. The key idea to remember is to be patient with setup process and not rush. Setup and final placement took fifteen minutes. The guide is well thought out and clear. The way it was folded made impossible to get mixed up. The device is well constructed and survived shipping without any damage. Form factor is ideal for the bottom outlet of the plug and is not affected by the drapery. White color is an appropriate most settings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to set up Instructions to set up the extender are clear and easy to follow as long as you remember to connect thru a wireless device. Easier to do on a phone or tablet than from a desktop(remember to turn wifi on). The range is very good and allows signal out in my yard(plugged into an out-building). I would like to figure out how to prioritize connection based on signal strength bc sometimes connects to my outside extender while I'm inside. This results in some loss of speed understandably, but easy to remedy when I realize the connection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You'll Appreciate The Setup I've had the RE6800 for about a week now. My network was noticeably extended. Loss of speed was good, about what you'd expect from a repeater. Upload was unaffected and download lost a little under 50 percent. But what I LOVE about it is the setup. If you've ever had to setup a router or extender you know what I mean. I plugged his thing in, connected my laptop to it and it dragged me through a short and simple setup. I would gladly have accepted lower performance than I'm getting for the setup alone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extended my network 2x in under 10 minutes I received my RE6800 this weekend, unboxed it, plugged it in and in less than 10 minutes doubled the distance on my network. I have an EA6900 wifi dual band router that covers my two story 3000 sq ft house very well. When I'm outside in the yard or in my garage the signal was degraded when I did full motion audio and video while talking to my kids or parents. Not anymore... I've got all three bars on my devices all the time and can wander anywhere in my house or yard with confidence that I won't lose the wifi signal. The RE6800 has the ability to function as an access point as well as extend either or both 2.4GHz and 5GHz. It is simple to setup because it comes with the WPS (Wifi Protected Setup) button. Push the WPS button on the router and then on your extender and 30 seconds later they were synced. It also comes with a 'spot finder' that will tell you whether your extender is too close to the router, to far from the router or just right. It doesn't get any easier than that if you are wondering where to put your extender. This is my first wifi range extender and I now wonder why I didn't buy one years ago.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! Finally full coverage in our house ... Installed the RE6800 about 10 days ago. Installation was simple, guided me to the best position for coverage, turned it on and haven't looked back. It works great. We have a strong signal in places we never could get connected and we finally have connectivity on our deck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much needed coverage. I do a lot of work in my garage and need to connect to tech sites. I've been having problems connecting as my Linksys router is at the other end of the house from the garage. I was thinking of routing some cat 5 but that would be a chore and a big pain. I gave this a try and wow, works great. Setup was very easy, took me approx 10 min's to setup and configure. I went from 0 bars to 4. If you have coverage problems, give this a try. Can not go wrong with this fine product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from simple to install and functionally effective I am very pleased with this Linksys RE6800 AC1750 Wi-Fi Range Extender device performance; it is simple to install and functionally effective. My house is quite wide with my router located at approximately the 1/3 point in the length of the house. The router's wifi could not reach the farthest 1/3 of the house and it could not be relocated easily.. The optimum position for the Linksys extender appeared to be the 50% point of the house. Now I have a decent wifi signal throughout my house. The Linksys extender was easy and fast to setup without any difficulties. One merely "synchronizes" the extender near the router with two button pushes, one for 2.4 Ghz and the 5.0 Ghz dual bands, respectively, then relocates the extender to an optimum location and you are done.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Same experience as others, returned it to Costco The unit would not link with my ATT router. Called customer service. After getting all of my information, she said she could activate it remotely for $19.95 and $7 per month. I told he thank you but I would return it to Costco. No attempt was made to solve my issue, just an up selling pitch. Costco needs to do better

Actual ranges will increase or decrease depending on wireless obstructions, operating environments, and building material. Wireless coverage claims are used only as reference and are not guaranteed as each wireless network is unique.
Maximum performance derived from IEEE Standard 802.11 specification. Actual performance can vary, including lower wireless network capacity, data throughput rate, range, and coverage.
