The extraordinary growth in the number of wireless devices found in modern homes has seen a huge increase in demand for wireless speed, range and bandwidth. This continuing trend away from wired connections to wireless communication and the ever-increasing throughput demands of new Wi-Fi devices and applications—including Internet TVs, computers, tablets and smartphones—drives the requirements in today’s homes for high-performance, reliable Wi-Fi to unprecedented levels. To meet the connectivity needs of homes and businesses alike, Edimax has launched the BR-6478AC dual-band 802.11ac router: featuring the latest 11ac draft standard for extraordinary improvements in the speed, reliability and quality of wireless communications.
Next-Generation Wireless Networking
The Edimax BR-6478AC router supports the next generation IEEE 802.11ac wireless standard, meaning higher data rates in the 5GHz band. With 300Mbps speeds in the 2.4GHz band and 867Mbps speeds in 5GHz, the BR-6478AC is ideal for HD video streaming and large file transfers. The router is also backward compatible with 802.11a/b/g/n to ensure compatibility with legacy Wi-Fi devices.
5-in-1 Router, Access Point, Range Extender , Wireless Bridge and WISP
The BR-6478AC V2 can work as router, access point, range extender, wireless bridge or WISP. Just configure the mode you need for your network environment using the smart iQ Setup wizard.
Concurrent Dual-Band Wi-Fi & Gigabit Ethernet Connectivity
The Edimax BR-6478AC router provides simultaneous 2.4GHz (802.11n) and 5GHz (802.11ac) wireless network connectivity for maximum flexibility of use. Additionally, the BR-6478AC router features four gigabit LAN ports and one gigabit WAN port, offering data rates of up to a staggering 1000Mbps for users with the need for maximum network performance. With gigabit Ethernet connectivity, the BR-6478AC can provide users a fast and smooth media streaming or network gaming experience.
Smart iQ Setup

Edimax’s Revolutionary iQoS
iQoS is Edimax’s solution for a quicker, easier, and more effective way to manage Internet bandwidth. While Quality of Service (QoS) functionality is a common feature in routers across the market, typically only advanced users have the knowledge required to set up the complex parameters. Edimax though has redesigned QoS with user-friendliness and accessibility in mind. A simple and intuitive user interface allows users to arrange bandwidth priority settings in just a few clicks. With iQoS, you can enjoy gaming, video streaming, VoIP applications and BT clients at the same time without the usual nightmare of lag and interruptions. An original, efficient and effective means of managing your Internet bandwidth.
Supports a guest network to provide connectivity while isolating guests from your primary network.

WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup) Button & Built-In WLAN On/Off Switch
The Edimax BR-6478AC allows users to build secure connections with WPS enabled wireless devices simply by pressing the WPS button - there is no need for the hassle of complex set up and configuration procedures. And with the built-in WLAN on/off switch users can also easily switch on/off the wireless connection without logging into the user interface – an easy way to save electricity when it is not in use.
VPN Access for Privacy & Security
Built-in Virtual Private Network (VPN) support for easy VPN access on all your devices. VPNs enable you to access secure, remote networks from anywhere and can offer privacy and security online. Log in to your work/school network remotely or avoid geoblocking, protect privacy on public Wi-Fi and bypass Internet censorship.
Home Users: Avoid regional restrictions and access geo-blocked content such as Netflix or iPlayer from anywhere. Ensure your privacy and anonymity online and defeat censorship and other location-based content restrictions. You can also remotely access your home network when you’re away, and use your encrypted VPN for security when out and about using potentially unsafe public Wi-Fi hotspots.
Small Office Users: Enable your employees to access company resources remotely such as email, documents saved on the company server and any programs/systems when they are outside the office.
Multi-Function USB Port
Connect a USB hard-drive and enjoy your own private cloud storage. Keep content on your central storage and access it from any device on your network, such as movie and TV streaming to PCs or smart TVs, or for regular backups of vital data. With the built-in VPN function you can even access your network remotely when you’re away from home. It can also be used with an FTP server or printer, so any devices on your network can print over your Wi-Fi.
Employing two external high-gain fixed antennas, the BR-6478AC V2 provides powerful 2.4GHz and 5GHz dual-band signal strength and enhances Wi-Fi range, providing signal penetration through walls and floors across your home or office.
