Smartphones, tablets and laptop computers are everywhere, and they all rely on one thing - fast Wi-Fi. TVs, games consoles, security cameras, lighting and an ever-growing range of household appliances are all becoming network-connected devices and high-performance, reliable Wi-Fi is essential in modern homes for the things people use every day. The Edimax EW-7208APC dual-band 802.11ac access point meets the connectivity needs of homes and small businesses alike. Featuring the latest, high-speed 11ac standard for noticeable improvements in Wi-Fi speed and performance, triple antennas for expansive coverage, easy setup and advanced features such as VLAN support, and multiple SSIDs, the EW-7208APC is an all-in-one solution to equip your home network for today and tomorrow’s Wi-Fi demands.
11ac Wireless Networking
The Edimax EW-7208APC supports IEEE 802.11ac wireless standard, meaning higher data rates in the 5GHz band. With 300Mbps speeds in the 2.4GHz band and 433Mbps speeds in 5GHz, the EW-7208APC is ideal for HD video streaming and large file transfers. The access point 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 EW-7208APC access point provides simultaneous 2.4GHz (802.11n) and 5GHz (802.11ac) wireless network connectivity for maximum flexibility for your network devices.
Three Antennas For Better Wi-Fi Performance
Employing three external detachable antennas, the EW-7208APC 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.
5-in-1, Access Point, Range Extender, Wireless Bridge, Wi-Fi Router and WISP
The EW-7208APC can work as an access point, range extender, wireless bridge, Wi-Fi router or WISP. Just configure the mode you need for your network environment using the smart iQ Setup wizard.
Smart iQ Setup
Features iQ Setup for smart, automatic and quick installation with no CD required.
Multi-SSID & VLAN Support*
Multi-SSID enables users to configure up to eight separate SSIDs (2.4GHz x 4 and 5GHz x 4) 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.
*Access point mode only
Eliminate Wi-Fi Dead Zones & Double Wi-Fi Coverage
Switch the EW-7208APC to range extender mode to extend Wi-Fi coverage to dead zones which your existing Wi-Fi signal can’t reach. Increase the signal coverage of your Wi-Fi network for better performance on your Wi-Fi devices.
