Posted: Sep 23, 2015 9:41 am | Networking Press Releases

RENDnet (, a best-in-class wired and wireless networking hardware brand, announced today the availability of its AC1200 Wi-Fi Range Extender, model TEW-822DRE. TRENDnet's AC1200 Wi-Fi Range Extender provides incredible coverage to significantly reduce wireless network dead spots.




TRENDnet's AC1200 Wi-Fi Range Extender provides high performance wireless amplifiers and external antennas that broadcast concurrent Wireless AC and Wireless N. The 5 GHz Wireless AC band provides better performance with less interference and has additional non-overlapping channels. Targeted beamforming improves real-time performance by directing the strongest wireless signals to specific devices.


"More and more devices are equipped with Wireless AC capabilities, but one drawback to the 5 GHz Wireless band is its weaker reach," said Evan Davis, senior manager of solutions engineering at TRENDnet. "TRENDnet's AC1200 Wi-Fi Range Extender, paired with an 802.11ac client, assists to improve the range of the less congested 5 GHz band by providing nearly whole-home Wireless AC coverage."


Users simply plug the TEW-822DRE directly into an electrical outlet; the extender blends into most home environments with its off-white housing. This extender offers both extender and access point modes, and it features a gigabit port to extend a high performance connection to any wired device.


Pricing and Availability

TRENDnet's AC1200 Wi-Fi Range Extender, model TEW-822DRE, is available worldwide through major retailers and other authorized TRENDnet partners, with an MSRP of USD $84.99.
