Original Press Release
Diamond Multimedia Announces Dual Band 2.4Ghz/5.0Ghz 300Mbps Wall-Plugged Wireless Range Extender (WR600NSI)
Press release date: May 14, 2014
LOS ANGELES, CA -- Diamond Multimedia today introduced the newest addition to its Wireless Range Extender product line, the Dual Band WR600NSIWireless Range Extender. The new WR600NSI acts as a Wireless Repeater and Range Extender, and Wireless Bridge Device that eliminates wireless dead spots. The Dual Band 300Mbps Wireless Range Extender supports 300Mbps for 2.4GHz band, and 300Mbps band for 5.0GHz. It also comes with MIMO, 2T2R for 802.11b/g/n for 2.4GHz band and 2T2R for 802.11a/n for 5GHz band. This second-generation device is even easier to set up and has a new LED signal indicator and it can extend the wireless range as far as 30 meters.
Unlike ordinary Wi-Fi repeaters that require an external power supply adapter, WR600NSI's wall-plugged design empowers users to plug it directly into any available power outlet. The WR600NSI can take an existing 802.11n wireless signal, repeat it and send it to a longer range where it would have been too far for the router or access point to reach. It is designed with RSSI -- Received Signal Strength Indicators -- to determine the strength of the signal it receives from the router so that it can be placed in the optimal location, a new function that the first generation model did not have. The WR600NSI acts as a Wireless Bridge Device by receiving wireless signal from your home wireless network and converting to wired Ethernet connections for non-wireless devices such as Internet-ready HDTV, Blu-ray players, gaming consoles, and media players.
