UP TO 3X FASTER THAN DUAL-BAND RANGE EXTENDERS*

The Max-Stream RE9000 Tri-Band Range Extender helps you get the most out of your home WiFi by delivering speeds up to 3X faster than Dual-Band range extenders*. Dedicated backhaul technology maximizes WiFi speeds by assigning a single, dedicated 5 GHz WiFi band to your router. This frees up the remaining two bands to focus exclusively on your streaming media players, game consoles, and other connected devices, so you'll enjoy full-strength WiFi without slowdown or degradation.

Additionally, Band Steering automatically directs connected devices to the faster and less congested WiFi band, offering uninterrupted premium coverage throughout your home and beyond.

How Tri-Band Works Animation

WORKS WITH ALL WiFi ROUTERS AND ISP GATEWAYS

This WiFi range extender is compatible with any WiFi router, including those from Internet service providers. There's no need to adjust your router's settings when installing the extender.

MULTI USER-MIMO EXTENDS NEXT-GEN AC WiFi TO MULTIPLE USERS

Next-Gen AC with MU-MIMO (Multi-User, Multiple-Input, Multiple-Output) technology ensures your WiFi is delivered faster and with more efficient throughput to every MU-MIMO connected device. This means your whole household can surf the Internet, stream 4K and HD movies, play online games, and more simultaneously--without annoying buffering or lag.

Range Extenders With vs Without Seamless Roaming

ROOM-TO-ROOM WiFi WITH SEAMLESS ROAMING

With Seamless Roaming, your enabled wireless devices will automatically switch to the strongest WiFi signal, so you won't have to manually connect to the router or range extender when you move from one room to another--or even to your backyard.** This means that you can move freely throughout your home while video chatting or streaming videos without experiencing dropped calls or buffering.

Pair a MAX-STREAM router such as the EA9500 with the MAX-STREAM range extender for more efficient home WiFi that delivers stronger, more powerful WiFi signal to all your devices.

AUTO UPDATES KEEP YOUR DEVICE UP TO DATE

Your RE9000 will automatically receive firmware updates from Linksys as they are released, so your range extender is always secure and up-to-date.

BEAMFORMING FOR RELIABLE CONNECTIVITY

Linksys range extenders provide a reliable connection that allows you to enjoy uninterrupted gaming and HD streaming. Beamforming technology focuses the WiFi signal directly to your smartphone, tablet, or laptop for a fast WiFi connection.

Spot Finder Technology

EASY SETUP OPTIONS FOR OPTIMAL PLACEMENT

Two simple ways to setup:

  • Simply press the Push Button Connect feature on the MAX-STREAM AC3000 to automatically sync it to your router.
  • Simple setup from a smartphone, tablet, or laptop.

How to extend WiFi range as much as possible: find the optimal location for the range extender using Spot Finder Technology.

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

Gigabit Ethernet Ports

4 GIGABIT ETHERNET PORTS TO CONNECT WIRED DEVICES

Connect game consoles, Blu-ray players, or Smart TVs to the AC3000's four Gigabit Ethernet ports to provide a fast and stable connection.

EXPAND YOUR WiFi NETWORK WITH ACCESS POINT MODE

You can configure the RE9000 range extender to act as an AC access point to extend your home WiFi and reduce dead zones. Access Point Mode allows you to add WiFi capabilities to your existing home wired network. Not only will Band Steering automatically direct traffic to the least congested of the RE9000's three WiFi bands, but all three bands will use the same SSID for seamless performance.

Simply connect the AC3000 range extender using a Gigabit Ethernet cable to your router or cable gateway to upgrade your WiFi connectivity.

*Maximum performance derived from IEEE Standard 802.11 specifications. Actual performance can vary, including lower wireless network capacity, data throughput rate, speed, range, and coverage. Performance depends on many factors, conditions, and variables, including distance from the access point, volume of network traffic, building materials and construction, operating system used, mix of wireless products used, interference, and other adverse conditions. In order to achieve the best performance, this product must be used with compatible AC3000 wireless devices.
†The standard transmission rates of both 5 GHz radios—1733 Mbps + 867 Mbps—are up to 3x faster physical data rates when compared to dual-band AC1200 range extenders with one 5 GHz radio speed of 867 Mbps. To achieve these speeds, this range extender requires a 5 GHz connection to the router.
**Seamless Roaming is designed for devices that support the 802.11k standard, including but not limited to, iPhone (4s and later), iPad Pro, iPad Air and later, iPad mini and later, iPad (3rd generation and later), iPod touch (5th generation and later), Samsung S4 (Android 4.2.2 /4.4.2), Samsung S5 (Android 4.4.2), and Samsung S6 (Android 5.0.2). For more information on supported Windows® and other devices, please check with your device manufacturer. Seamless Roaming may require the latest Max-Stream firmware. Please check the support page of your Max-Stream Router for more details.
§Range specifications are based on performance test results under normal use case conditions. 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.
Push Button Connect works with devices that support Wi-Fi Protected Setup™ like Linksys Wireless-AC routers and others.
