Fill Your Home with Wi-Fi
The RP-N12 wireless range
extender has powerful external MIMO antennas that help to eliminate signal dead zones and improve the coverage of any existing wireless router. It works as a range
extender, 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.
One-press setup and worry-free connectivity
RP-N12 wireless range extender installation doesn’t require a CD or even a mouse and keyboard. Simply press the WPS button and setup is complete. Optimized performance is assured for a seamless and smooth internet experience. For advanced settings, you can connect RP-N12 to a PC via an Ethernet cable and access the web-based configuration menu directly, with no disc or app needed. You can even set it up wirelessly from a tablet or smartphone.
Find the best location for RP-N12 with the signal indicator
For best results, RP-N12 needs to be within range of a stable router signal, and should be placed between the router and the location where you need better wireless coverage. RP-N12 works best when it is receiving a strong wireless signal from the router — you can check this by using the signal strength indicator on the front panel.
3-in-1 repeater, access point and media bridge modes
RP-N12 has two more 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. A great way to reduce cable mess!
