Whether it’s to keep up with breaking news, checking online recipes while cooking, sharing snaps, or chatting with friends and family online through social media, wireless connectivity is now an integral part of home life. A wireless router or access point at home may provide wireless internet access, yet the wireless coverage often cannot reach to certain corners.

The ZyXEL WRE2206 is a wireless range extender tailored to solve the connection problem. Two easy steps of setup is all it takes to keep you hooked up with wireless in previously unreachable corners – just plug the power-boosted WRE2206 into a power socket and press the WPS buttons on the WRE2206 and your router or AP.  No wiring is necessary to extend your wireless coverage.

The LED ring on the WRE2206 indicates the strength of the wireless signal to help you locate the best spot to install, so you will not have to fumble around the house and pray that you bet on the right place. On the right side of the LED ring the WRE2206 also tells you how many devices are being connected so you always know if too many devices are connected and compromising wireless speed. Regular automatic firmware updates also ensure constant performance enhancements that do not even require any additional effort.

The Ethernet port on the bottom keeps your choice of connection open – be it wired or wireless. The port can be used to connect wired network devices to your existing wireless network, including game consoles, smart TVs or a set top box. The user-centered design of the compact WRE2206 makes it easy to install, manage, and blend in homes where ubiquitous home wireless coverage has become a necessity.
