ASUS Launches RP-AC52 Dual-Band Wireless Range Extender


ASUS today announced the dual-band RP-AC52 wireless range extender, which uses next-generation 802.11ac Wi-Fi with concurrent 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz operation to work provide combined data transmission speeds of up to 733 Mbit/s.

The RP-AC52 can help you bring wireless access to areas such garages, basements or backyards. With its 3.5 mm audio jack, the RP-AC52 can also be used to stream music wirelessly from PCs and mobile devices to home entertainment and Hi-Fi systems. The device is compatible with all current Wi-Fi standards, allowing it to be used with any existing Wi-Fi router or other device.

Thanks to the latest 802.11ac technology, the RP-AC52 wireless range extender is capable of impressive data rates of up to 300 Mbit/s on the 2.4 GHz band, plus an additional 433 Mbit/s via 5 GHz. Since the two frequencies operate concurrently, the total available bandwidth is 733 Mbit/s. Users can assign devices to either band, allowing them to choose the frequency most suited to the application - for example, devices used for web browsing and social networking can use the standard 2.4 GHz band, and those used to HD video streaming or online gaming can take advantage of the faster and less interference-prone 5 GHz band.

RP-AC52 has two modes. As well as a range extender, it can also work as a wireless access point (AP). In AP mode it can be connected to any wired LAN to create a personal Wi-Fi hotspot. AP mode is also handy for adding wireless capability to a router with no built-in Wi-Fi. RP-AC52 can switch automatically between AP mode and range extender mode depending on whether it is connected to a wired or wireless LAN.

To pair the RP-AC52 wireless range extender with routers and devices, users only need to press the WPS (Wi-Fi protected setup) button on the RP-AC52 and the router, and setup is complete. WPS is compatible with routers and modem routers from ASUS and other brands. Once paired with the router, RP-AC52 works completely transparently, with wireless devices simply connecting to the Wi-Fi network as usual. RP-AC52 can also be configured manually by connecting a network cable between the LAN port and a PC or laptop.

A range extender needs to be within working range of the existing wireless router in order to extend the signal coverage, and for best results it needs to receive a good signal from the router. To help users determine the ideal location, RP-AC52 has LED signal strength indicators on the front panel, allowing users to place RP-AC52 accordingly.
