Amped Wireless REA20 Extender




The packaging for the REA20 carries the traditional design from Amped Wireless. Here, we have a photo of the range extender to the right, with tons of information placed around the edges.




Internally the extender was packaged in egg crate material, which is pretty standard as far as routers go. We found setup instructions included, along with a disk to get us going.




The scope of delivery for the Amped REA20 includes the power adapter, the 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 extender.




The Amped Wireless REA20 features a high gloss exterior in white. On the top, we have a full array of indicator LEDs, with each wired port having one, along with USB, and both wireless bands.




The back of the extender houses all of the connections. You can see each antenna connection is numbered to accept the appropriate antenna. To the left, you have the WPS and reset buttons.




The internals of the REA20 mirror that of the RTA15 we previously reviewed. Here, we have a Realtek processor at the center, operating at 660MHz. To the left, we have the RTL8367 Switch that offers a 5 + 2 port configuration. At the top, we have the 5GHz Radio, and four 26dbm amplifiers. Below, we have the 2.4GHz radio, along with two 28dbm amplifiers.
