Wi-Fi Wireless Range Extender – 300 Mbps 802.11 b/g/n Access Point / Repeater / Signal Booster

Create or extend the range of a Wireless-N (300Mbps) WiFi network

Product ID: WFREPEAT300N

5 stars (3 reviews) |
  • Switchable operating modes, enabling you to choose between WiFi Access Point (AP) and wireless network Repeater functions
  • Convenient wall plug design compatible with NA/UK/EU outlets
  • Compliant with IEEE 802.11n (Wireless-N), with up to 300 Mbps of data bandwidth

The WFREPEAT300N Wireless-N Extender offers two selectable operating modes that enable it to be used as an Access Point or repeater, for either extending the range of existing wireless networks or adding wireless capabilities to a non-wireless network. Using a wall plug design, this allows for convenient or hidden placement anywhere there is an available AC outlet.

Used as a Wireless-N repeater, the WFREPEAT300N can expand the effective range of any 802.11n WiFi network, delivering up to 300Mbps of data bandwidth, by boosting the WiFi signal to help eliminate dead spots and provide a stronger signal in areas with obstructions which would typically reduce the wireless range. The WiFi range extender is also backward compatible with 802.11b/802.11g networks, for versatile network expansion with wireless routers that use older standards.

When used as a wireless access point (AP), the WFREPEAT300N can add wireless-N capability to any non-wireless router, ensuring maximum convenience and network scalability.

To provide maximum privacy and help prevent network intrusions, the Wireless-N Extender/Repeater offers a built-in firewall with IP, MAC Address and URL filtering, and supports common WiFi security protocols (WEP/WPA/WPA2).

Backed by a StarTech.com 2-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.

Applications

  • Extend the range or increase the signal strength of a Wireless-N signal to cover a larger area, with backward compatible support for Wireless-B/G networks
  • Eliminate wireless network dead spots or weak signals that result from obstructions such as walls
  • Turn an existing wired Ethernet router into a wireless N access point, instead of buying a new router

The StarTech.com Advantage

  • Switchable operating modes (Wireless-N repeater mode, AP mode) offers a versatile solution for expanding both wired and WiFi networks
  • The WiFi repeater uses a wall plug design, which enables convenient placement anywhere an AC outlet is located
  • Backward compatibility with wireless B/G standards and built-in security (WEP/WPA/WPA2) for versatility in different environments

Really works-now the whole house has WI-FI

By: Dave69 - 07/05/2016
I was having a serious problem with a streaming device, which required a strong signal to perform correctly. The supplier of the streaming device advised that the only solution would be to 'hard-wire' his device to the modems ethernet port. Nobody wants wires running across the floor and up the stairs. I decided to try using the StarTech wireless Repeater. PROBLEM SOLVED INSTANTLY! What a worthwhile purchase that was. Also, StarTechs Service department was VERY reachable and helpful. I am one very happy customer!

Love it!

By: Judyjht - 11/04/2016
I bought this probably a year ago and love it. Sometimes I have to just unplug it and plug it back in and it is good to go for another few months. I want one for my covered porch but the outdoor plugs aphave covers so it won't fit. I have to check to see if there is a different style that might work.

Works well

By: Beats - 05/17/2017
Boosts your wifi signal. A bit tricky to set up if you are not techy. I called the tech support line and they were fantastic. However you may have to wait 20 minutes for a technician.
