Building a home network starts with connecting your router to your Internet Provider's Modem, but it doesn't end there. Next, you're going to want wired and wireless access for all your data hungry devices. Then you have to deal with interference from walls and other obstacles just to get that access within your small business or even your backyard. It sure would be a lot easier if you had the Amped Wireless APA20 High Power Access Point.
The Amped Wireless APA20 access point has incredible range and can even work with blazing fast routers like the ASUS RT-AC68U. Connecting it to the APA20 solves any range issues by expanding your 801.11AC network up to 8,000 feet, maintaining both the speed of the router and the quality of connectivity. In fact, that is all you have to do as the APA20 will configure itself to your network settings as soon as you connect it giving you an additional long-range Wi-Fi network and 4 addition Gigabit Ethernet ports for plugging in other devices like one of those new WD My Clouds or a NAS.
The new Amped Wireless APA20 is available as a pre-order for as low as $170.36 US with an October 29th shipping date. Now you can put your router anywhere in your house, stream HD movies to your tablet while you barbecue, or turn a space thought to be too far away into an office.
