Sometimes your wireless router just isn’t quite good enough to cover the areas you want. This could be due to the size of the expected coverage area, or the inconvenience of having solid obstacles in the way of the wireless path – this kills signal strength. This is especially common with having thick walls or multi-story buildings.
One solution is to boost the existing wireless network in the direction you want to extend coverage. The Linksys RE2000 N300 Wireless Range Extender is a such a device, and provides a simple, cost effective solution to extend established networks.

6 Features of the Linksys RE2000 N300
Extend Your Network
Extend your existing network range further than it’s ever been. Provide more stability and reliability whilst also eliminating black holes in your home. The Linksys RE2000 boosts existing wireless networks further so that you can work, rest and play more than ever before. Using MIMO technology, your wireless network will work more efficiently even if obstacles are in it’s path.
The RE2000 is ideal for use with Wireless N networks. However, it is also compatible with legacy 802.11a, g & b networks – use 802.11n to get the best out of your network, especially with bandwidth intensive flows.
Quality of Service
Protect your sensitive traffic with the in-built QoS (Quality of Service) feature. Voice calls, streaming or gaming traffic can be susceptible to congestion on the network. With QoS, sensitive traffic types can be protected from congestion, providing a much smoother and enjoyable experience with less dropouts, lag and performance issues.
Dual Band gives the Linksys RE2000 the flexibility to connect to 2.4GHz or 5GHz (on Wireless N) networks. Try to use 5GHz if possible, as this is much less congested and less susceptible to interference from other non-network devices around the home.
CD Setup & WPS
Use the shipped CD to install the RE2000 with ease. The setup wizard will help you to place the extender in the best place possible.
There is also a WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup) button to help you pair the R2000 with other devices.
Place Where You Want
With wall fixings, you have the option to place strategically on the wall or on a table/desk. Extender placement is crucial to get the best coverage possible for your network.
