Wireless connectivity is such a big part of our day-to-day lives that if our Wi-Fi at home (or around the office) isn’t working the way it should be we notice almost immediately.

Wi-Fi technology has come quite a long way over the last decade. Still, many entry-level Wi-Fi routers aren’t capable of producing the stable, secure, and consistent network needed for rock-solid 24/7 connections, every day of the year. That’s where the RE300 comes into play.

Designed to pair nicely with your already existing TP-Link Wi-Fi set up, you’ll be able to create a mesh network in your home or your office with no real extra effort whatsoever. The RE300 will immediately extend your Wi-Fi signal (across the entirety of your property, with no dead zones) while at the same time boosting the strength and the stability of that Wi-Fi signal as well. Even if you don’t have a TP-Link router, the RE600 is still able to work as an AC range extender.

Another great feature of the TP-Link RE600 is that you can pair it with the TP-Link MR600 and have a 4G+ LTE mesh network. A unique feature that currently only the TP-Link products provide in Australia.

This all means you are going to be able to enjoy a more consistent Wi-Fi experience on all of your devices, no matter how close – or how far – those devices are in relation to your Wi-Fi router. You’ll get the same blazing-fast speeds and stability you would expect from Wi-Fi devices right next to your router at the edges of your Wi-Fi connection.

Use the TP-Link RE300 to boost your wireless coverage

There’s a lot to fall in love with when it comes to the TP-LINK AC1200 set up. Simple and straightforward to use right out of the box, easy to deploy without any headache or hassle, and engineered to be immediately useful even to those that do not have a technology background.
