Send high-performance Wi-Fi across your home to eliminate dead spots and lag with the RE500. The range extender's Wave 2 Wi-Fi technology includes 3-Stream and TurboQAM, which create ultra-fast AC1900 Wi-Fi for seamless gaming and 4K streaming in any room.
MU-MIMO lets the RE500 communicate with many devices at the same time to speed up connections, a feature amplified when the extender is paired with any MU-MIMO router. An Intelligent Processing Engine manages each Wi-Fi band and every connection without interruptions, and the RE500's quad-antenna design ensures a strong Wi-Fi signal where you need it most.

Powerful Wi-Fi for Incredible Performance
The RE500 deploys 3-Stream and TurboQAM technologies to create lightning-fast AC1900 connections. 3-Stream adds an extra data stream to both of the range extender's Wi-Fi bands, and TurboQAM expands the overall capacity of the dual bands.
With 3-Stream and TurboQAM working together, the RE500 can handle the demands of gaming at higher settings and streaming in 4K without buffering or lag hampering your online experience.
Intelligent Processing Engine for Wi-Fi Without Interruption
The RE500's Intelligent Processing Engine balances the demands of your devices to keep Wi-Fi connections fast and smooth. The engine sends Wi-Fi traffic to dedicated processors, leaving the extender's powerful dual-core CPU to take care of everything else.
With intelligent processing, you can game online, stream in 4K and download large files while your Wi-Fi remains fast and all your connections stay strong.
MU-MIMO for the Best Connections
Wave 2 Wi-Fi technology equips the RE500 with MU-MIMO, which lets the extender talk to several devices at once over the same Wi-Fi band. This simultaneous communication maximizes the performance of all your devices, even when they're running at the same time.
When paired with a router that also uses MU-MIMO technology, the RE500 delivers extended Wi-Fi that minimizes wait times and turbo-charges all of your Wi-Fi connections.
Quad-Antenna Design for Expansive Coverage
The RE500's powerful quad-antenna design boosts its Wi-Fi coverage to a phenomenal degree. Four high-powered antennas minimize coverage dead spots and create strong, reliable Wi-Fi connections with devices in the farthest corners of your home.
Beamforming technology makes the RE500's already impressive coverage even better. With Beamforming, the RE500 can detect the direction of its Wi-Fi connections and focus its wireless signal towards them, helping strengthen your home's overall Wi-Fi performance.
Wireless Bridge and AP Modes
Connect wired devices like game consoles and smart TVs to your Wi-Fi for blazing performance with the Gigabit Ethernet port. To create even stronger Wi-Fi coverage, connect the extender directly to your router via Ethernet and switch over to Access Point mode.
Easy Setup and Universal Compatibility
An LED lights up red where Wi-Fi is weak and blue where it’s strong to help you find the perfect setup spot, and the extender is easy to move so you can enjoy strong Wi-Fi wherever you need it. You can also connect the extender to any Wi-Fi router, access point or modem router.
Set up and manage your Wi-Fi with the TP-Link Tether app (Android, iOS). Tether allows quick access to settings such as guest privileges, scheduling and device management. An intuitive web UI helps you keep your network up to date by downloading the latest firmware, and the extender alerts you when critical updates are available.
