To meet today’s high-speed connectivity needs, Edimax has launched the BR-6288ACL dual-band 802.11ac router with the latest 11ac standard for extraordinary improvements in the speed, reliability and quality of wireless communications. It’s a 5-in-1 dual-band Wi-Fi router with an easy 3-step setup using a smartphone app or web-based smart iQ setup, which meets all of your Wi-Fi demands and is the first product of its kind to feature a green, power-saving TX power switch to adjust the Wi-Fi signal strength. The smartphone app and web-based interface also support auto firmware upgrade and the sleek design provides a unique, space-saving aesthetic which blends with any interior and delivers wide-reaching Wi-Fi coverage.
11ac The Latest High-Speed Wireless Networking
The Edimax BR-6288ACL router supports the latest IEEE 802.11ac wireless standard, meaning higher data rates in the 5GHz band. With 150Mbps speeds in the 2.4GHz band and 433Mbps speeds in 5GHz, the BR-6288ACL 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.
Concurrent Dual-Band Wi-Fi Connectivity
The Edimax BR-6288ACL router provides simultaneous 2.4GHz (802.11n) and 5GHz (802.11ac) wireless network connectivity for maximum flexibility of use.
Smartphone App & Smart iQ Setup
Features smartphone app setup or web-based setup for quick, automatic installation with no CD required, to get your product up and running without any difficult configurations or hassle. The smartphone app and web-UI also feature a new automatic firmware update function.
Auto Firmware Upgrade
Don’t worry about downloading new firmware files and keeping your router up to date. The BR-6288ACL supports auto firmware upgrade through the smartphone app and web-UI, so you can check the firmware status and upgrade to the latest version quickly and automatically – minimum fuss required.
Green Wi-Fi TX Power Switch
Featuring a new hardware slide switch to easily adjust between normal and green TX power (the strength of the Wi-Fi signal). In normal mode the device transmits with maximum TX power for wide coverage in large homes. But if you only need Wi-Fi in your room or inside a smaller house, you can switch to green mode to reduce TX power to less than 75% and reduce energy usage by up to 30%.
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.
Multi-SSID enables users to configure up to ten separate SSIDs (2.4GHz x 5 and 5GHz x 5) in order to group and manage users according to your requirements. In addition, each SSID can be assigned a different VLAN ID, so users with multiple VLANs can manage the network access level of each SSID – ensuring security and protecting confidential or critical network resources.
Supports a guest network to provide connectivity while isolating guests from your primary network.
