The RP-AC52 wireless repeater has powerful internal MIMO antennas that help to eliminate signal dead zones and improve the coverage of any existing wireless router. It works as a repeater, which means it can extend wireless networking to every corner of the home — even to those difficult, hard-to-reach spots. This ensures reliable high-speed internet coverage everywhere for devices such as notebooks, tablets, smartphones, game consoles and smart TVs. RP-AC52 lets you enjoy lag-free gaming and HD multimedia streaming throughout the home.
The RP-AC52 gets you true dual-band networking even if you’re on an older single-band router. Double your wireless performance with up to 733 Mbps bandwidth in 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz simultaneously! 2.4 GHz handles daily tasks like web browsing and social networking, while 5 GHz is great for HD video streaming and online gaming.
An LED signal-strength meter on the front of the RP-AC52 wireless repeater shows at a glance the strength of both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz signals.
We recommend placing the RP-AC52 between the router and the area where you want to extend wireless coverage. The RP-AC52 works best when it is receiving a strong wireless signal from the router, and you can check this using the signal strength indicator on the front panel of the RP-AC52. This shows the signal strength for both frequency bands — the longer the illuminated band, the stronger the signal. Position the RP-AC52 so that it is as far away from the router as possible but still showing a strong signal level.
RP-AC52 has two convenient modes to make it even more flexible. As well as a repeater, it can also work as a wireless access point (AP). In AP mode it can be connected to any wired LAN — for example, a hotel’s internet connection — to create a personal Wi-Fi hotspot, allowing the internet connection to be accessed from laptops, phones or other Wi-Fi devices. AP mode is also handy for adding wireless capability to a router with no built-in Wi-Fi.
You can connect speakers to the RP-AC52 wireless repeater and stream your favorite music direct from any mobile device that has the ASUS AiPlayer app installed. It’s compatible with a wide range of multimedia formats and delivers a smooth and effortless streaming experience, anywhere in the home. RP-AC52 also stream music from Mac and iOS devices with no need for extra software.
