Final Thoughts

The Amped Wireless REA20 offers a great deal of quality within a range extender. Using the same platform as the RTA15 allows Amped Wireless to offer two solutions for end users, within one stable platform. The top of the external casing is built from a heavy acrylic, with the underlying chassis consisting of a durable extruded plastic.

 

As far as the management interface goes, the REA20 offers a great deal of extras in addition to the standard setup wizard. Within, you can manage a USB share, and also manage the wireless network that drives the wired ports.

 

In the marketing documentation, Amped claims up to 10,000 sq. ft. of additional network coverage via the REA20. Now, this might seem like a huge feat, but it's quite easy to explain. The Amped REA20 is able to extend your network by 50 ft. in all directions (something that I actually exceeded by 10ft in testing).

 

By doing some simple math, we can extract that if we have 60ft in all directions, that it would equal roughly 14,000 sq. ft.; that's quite a remarkable feat in my book.
