Dual-Band Wireless-N600 Repeater / Access Point Dual-band concurrent range extenderWireless media playback with ASUS AiPlayer app*One-press setup and worry-free connectivityFull coverage with internal MIMO antennas Shop Modal header Lights up your Wi-Fi everywhere RP-N53 features internal MIMO antennas to ensure full coverage and no more signal dead zones. Its strong repeater functionality expands wireless home networking to every corner. Even the hard-to-reach spots get high-speed internet coverage for laptops, tablets, smartphones, game consoles, and smart TVs. With superior reception, you’ll enjoy lag-free gaming and HD multimedia streaming everywhere. We recommend placing the RP-N53 between the router and the area where you want to extend wireless coverage. The RP-N53 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-N53. This shows the signal strength for both frequency bands — the longer the illuminated band, the stronger the signal. 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz signal indicators Reactive LED lighting on the front of the RP-N53 offers at a glance signal strength indication for the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands. Both frequency bands have good signal strength Both frequency bands are very weak. Move the RP-N53 closer to the router to increase signal strength The 2.4 GHz signal is very strong, but the 5 GHz indicator shows no signal. Check that the 5 GHz frequency is enabled in the router. Repeater and access point modes RP-N53 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. Dual-band concurrent repeater The RP-N53 gets you true dual-band networking even if you’re on an older single-band router. Double your wireless performance with up to 300Mbps bandwidth in 2.4GHz and 5GHz simultaneously! 2.4GHz handles daily tasks like web browsing and social networking, while 5GHz is great for HD video streaming and online gaming.
