Anaheim, Calif. — Zyxel announced its WRE2205 802.11n wireless range extender for $59.99.
This device plugs into any electrical outlet to extend a network's wireless signal range throughout the home and the backyard. It provides transfer rates of up to 300Mbps and is backward compatible with 802.11b/g as well. It is now shipping.
The product’s setup wizard and Wi-Fi Protected Setup button lets users activate the range extenders with instant protection, and the LED signal strength indicators on the panel help users identify the best location for optimal Wi-Fi coverage. It is also eco-friendly as the unit comes with a power switch that shuts the device down when not in use to save electricity and reduce energy consumption, the company said.
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.
