The Amped Wireless RTA15 arrived in an inviting package. On the front of the box there is an image of the router with claims of "longest range" and in bold lettering the use of its high power amplifiers at 700mw.

Internally the router was packaged in an egg crate material, which is pretty standard as far as routers go. Included we found setup instructions, along with disk to get us going.

The scope of delivery for the Amped RTA15 includes the power adapter, stand and three high gain antennas. The three antennas are numbered and require you to match them to the appropriate port on the back of the router.

The Amped Wireless RTA15 carries a high gloss exterior with the company logo placed in the center. Below you will find a set on nine LEDs to denote router activity across wireless, wired Ethernet and USB storage.

The back of the router is labeled and color coded for easy setup. The modem port is colored blue, while the remaining gigabit switch ports are green. The three wireless connections for the antennas are label 1, 2 and 3. Additionally, we have a WPS button and reset switch next to the USB storage port.

The internals of the RTA15 features a Realtek processor at the center operating at 660MHz. To the left, we have the RTL8367 switch that offers a 5 + 2 port configuration.

 

To the top, circled in red, we have the 5 GHz radio and four 26dbm amplifiers. In blue, we have the 2.4 GHz radio, along with two 28dbm amplifiers.
