Amped Wireless Announces TAP-EX, the First
High Power Touch Screen Wi-Fi Range Extender

Industry's first High Power Touch Screen Range Extender, boosts Wi-Fi
signals up to 10,000 sq ft with the tap of a finger


Chino Hills, CA – October 28th, 2014 - Amped Wireless, the leading manufacturer of high power, long range wireless solutions for the home and office, today announced the availability of its TAP-EX, a High Power Touch Screen Wi-Fi Range Extender. The sleek and compact device boosts the signal of a Wi-Fi router by repeating and amplifying the signal, boosting Wi-Fi coverage to areas like upstairs rooms, out to the yard, or to the far office. Setup takes minutes and only requires a few taps of the finger, no other devices are needed.

“As Wi-Fi gadgets continue to infiltrate homes, full-home Wi-Fi coverage is a requirement and no longer a luxury,” stated Lacey Neddo, Brand/Marketing Manager of Amped Wireless. “With the innovation of the TAP-EX, we now have a solution that is built for everyone as its easy to use and every home can benefit from the device’s power. The TAP-EX is not intimidating, with just a few taps on the touch screen you're up and running in minutes. It is the next development in our commitment to creating real, powerful solutions for everyone and we are very excited to share the news today.”

The Amped Wireless difference starts with High Power technology. Standard Wi-Fi devices have an output power of a mere 50 milliwatts (mW). While the TAP-EX packs up to 800 milliwatts (mW) of Wi-Fi output power and all in a discreet table-top design. More output power means more Wi-Fi range, it allows a signal to push through walls and eliminate Wi-Fi dead spots. With four total amplifiers and two high gain, dual band antennas, the TAP-EX provides up to 10,000 square feet of extended coverage.

From start to finish, the setup of the TAP-EX is done entirely on the vibrant touch screen display. No computers or other devices are needed to complete it. After powering on the Extender, the user taps to scan for the Wi-Fi network they would like to extend, then selects that network from the list and setup is complete. The touch screen also allows the user to control many features of the Range Extender including the setup and management of Guest Networks, the Wi-Fi Access Schedule, User Access Controls, the strength of the Wi-Fi signal in Signal Coverage Controls and many other settings.

At a mere five inches tall by about five inches wide, the TAP-EX can be placed on a shelf, desk, or even mounted to a wall. Thoughtfully designed to complement most interior aesthetics, the TAP-EX also features an optional modern digital clock display. The Extender is built with two additional wired ports for connecting TVs, Blu-ray players, gaming consoles and any other network device. It is also equipped with a USB port for local file sharing.

All Amped Wireless products include the Wi-Fi Analytics Tool App, free for Android and Windows devices to help users analyze and optimize their networks. The app allows users to fine tune their network to get the maximum speed and coverage from their device. All Amped products are also backed by industry leading, U.S. based, in-house Elite Technical Support provided by Amped Concierges. The Elite Support team is ready for your calls, emails, and chats 7 days a week.

The TAP-EX has a retail price of $119.99 and is available for pre-order from Amazon and the Amped Wireless Store today. It will be available at major brick and mortar retailers and other online retailers within the next two weeks.
