Broadband device distributor, PCRange, has launched Minitar’s Wireless AC Repeater/AP in Australia for $69.95.
iTWire colleague Ray Shaw will be reviewing the device and its performance in the near future, this article is to bring you the news that it is now locally available.
It’s a dual-band router that simultaneously supports both 2.4GHz and 5GHz wireless network connections, as well as the fastest 802.11ac standard, providing transmission speeds as fast as 733 megabits per second.
In tests, the router works seamlessly with many dual-band access point brands, including Billion and FRITZ!Box, both of which are also PCRange products.
Naturally, the device promises easy installation, along with a software wizard that automatically scans for local wireless networks. Setting up the device is as easy as choosing your wireless network’s name and entering your password.
PCRange CEO Raaj Menon said the Minitar Wireless AC Repeater/AP would prove useful in areas such as factories and large buildings.
“This router will also be great for home users because its dual-band connections allow for lag-free HD video streaming and gaming,” he said.
To ensure great performance with 802.11ac, as well as 802.11 a/b/g/n, there are three internal antennas for ‘terrific wireless performance and transmission rates’. There’s also built-in stability via a channel selection feature that automatically avoids channel conflicts.
WPA2, WPA and WEP encryption are supported, with WPA2 being the standard that’s recommended.
The Minitar Wireless AC Repeater/AC also has two 10/100Mb/s Ethernet ports, one for LAN (Local Area Networks) and the other for both LAN and WAN (Wide Area Networks).
