If you want to improve the WiFi network in your home, today it is cheaper than ever, because we have one of the best WiFi repeaters with the new Wi-Fi 6 standard on offer. A WiFi repeater like the AVM FRITZ!Repeater 1200 AX allows us to replace the WiFi of the operator’s main router, but it will also allow us to extend its wireless coverage so that it reaches every corner of the house. Do you want to know what this repeater is capable of and at what price you can buy it today?
Characteristics of this repeater
This WiFi repeater is simultaneous dual band with Wi-Fi 6 and AX3000 class . In the 2.4GHz band we can achieve a speed of up to 574Mbps, in the 5GHz band we can achieve a speed of up to 2402Mbps, thanks to the incorporation of the 160MHz channel width. This feature is essential to achieve real WiFi speeds of 1Gbps with different devices that have 2 antennas, such as high-end smartphones or tablets, with laptops and any WiFi card with two internal or external antennas.
This WiFi repeater has a Gigabit Ethernet port for the LAN , depending on the operating mode chosen in the WiFi repeater, we can use it for two clearly different things:
- If we configure it in WiFi bridge mode (universal WiFi repeater mode), we can use this port to connect a final device via cable, such as a Smart TV. However, you could also connect a Gigabit switch to increase the number of available wired ports.
- If we configure it in LAN bridge mode (AP mode), we use this port to connect the main router to the repeater, so that it is in charge of providing WiFi with the best performance, since the data traffic will go through the wired network to the router.
This repeater is one of the most complete that we have tested in this article, and the best thing about this WiFi repeater is the FRITZ! OS operating system. The firmware allows us to configure the WiFi networks in detail , enable the WiFi programmer, activate the guest WiFi network, define emails to notify us of different problems with the device, and above all, we can see a complete menu where all the clients will appear. WiFi that are connected.
The strong point of this WiFi repeater is the perfect integration with the FRITZ!Box routers , if we use an AVM brand router, we will be able to form a complete WiFi Mesh network with very high performance and a truly spectacular behavior. If you have the possibility to buy a FRITZ!Box router, with this repeater you will be able to have WiFi roaming and also band-steering, two very important functions to have the best user experience. In the event that you do not have an AVM router right now, this repeater will also work perfectly for you, but you will not have Mesh functions such as WiFi roaming between nodes.
The sale price of this repeater is 85 euros, a fairly cheap price if we take into account its technical specifications and how well it works. Currently there are other WiFi repeaters for about 40 euros much cheaper, but they do not have WiFi 6, they do not have the performance that this model does (both in coverage and in real speed), nor the FRITZ! OS firmware.
