The RP-AC53 wireless repeater has powerful external antennas that help eliminate Wi-Fi dead zones and improve the coverage of any existing wireless router. It works as a range booster, which means it can extend wireless networking to every corner of your home — even to those difficult, hard-to-reach spots. With blindingly-fast 802.11ac speeds of up to 733Mbps, it’s ideal for extending your existing 802.11ac Wi-Fi network, giving you reliable high-speed internet coverage everywhere for devices such as laptops, tablets, smartphones, game consoles and smart TVs.
The ASUS Extender app is the easy and intuitive way to set up your ASUS repeater. With just a few taps, you can easily transfer your router’s login information to the repeater, and there are easy instructions to help you find the ideal location for RP-AC53. It’s all PC-free and available in your hand!
Setting up your RP-AC53 wireless repeater doesn’t require messing with discs, or even a mouse and keyboard. The ASUS Extender app is an easy and intuitive way to set up RP-AC53, but if you prefer you can use the WPS buttons on RP-AC53 and your router for instant automatic setup. Optimized performance is assured for a seamless and smooth internet experience. For advanced settings, you can connect RP-AC53 to a PC via a network cable and access the web-based configuration menu directly.
For the best performance, RP-AC53 needs to be within range of a strong and stable router signal, and should be placed between the router and the location where you need better wireless coverage— you can check this by simply using the signal strength LED on the front panel.
RP-AC53 has three convenient modes to make it even more flexible. As well as a repeater, it can also work as a wireless access point (AP) or as a media bridge. 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.
In Media Bridge mode, it can be connected to any Ethernet-compatible device — such as a smart TV, multimedia player, game console or PC — to give it Wi-Fi capability. It’s a great way to reduce cable mess!
The convenient AC pass-through socket keeps the power outlet free when you plug RP-AC53, so you don’t have to sacrifice a power outlet!
