Specifications are subject to change without notice.

1 Range specifications are based on performance test results. Actual performance may vary due to differences in operating environments, building materials and wireless obstructions. Performance may increase or decrease over the stated specification. Wireless coverage claims are used only as a reference and are not guaranteed as each wireless network is uniquely different. Maximum wireless signal rate derived from IEEE 802.11 standard specifications. Actual data throughput may vary as a result of network conditions and environmental factors. Output power specifications are based on the maximum possible radio output power plus antenna gain. May not work with non-standard Wi-Fi devices such as those with proprietary software or drivers. Supports all Wi-Fi standards that are compatible or backwards compatible with 802.11a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi standards.

2 All transmission rates listed, for example 399Mbps for 2.4GHz and 866Mbps for 5GHz, are the physical data rates. Actual data throughput will be lower and may depend on external factors as well as the combination of devices connected to the router. AC1200 wireless speeds are achieved when connecting to other AC1200 capable devices.

3 May not work with non-standard Wi-Fi routers or routers with altered firmware or proprietary firmware, such as those from third party sources or some Internet service providers. May not work with routers that do not comply with IEEE or Wi-Fi standards.

4 For MU-MIMO to work, additional MU-MIMO capable devices must be connected to the network.

5 DirectLink requires a 5GHz connection to the home network. DirectLink achieves up to 2X the speed by using a full duplex connection versus traditional half duplex connections of standard Wi-Fi Extenders. Increase in speed is achieved when compared with similar AC1200 Extenders.
