Infotech Lead Asia: EDIMAX Technology has launched the EW-7238RPD N300+ Dual-Band Universal Wi-Fi Extender, a 300Mbps slim line dual-band Wi-Fi extender designed to boost the coverage of any Wi-Fi network. This latest Wi-Fi extender aims to deliver high-quality 5 GHz WI-Fi across the user’s entire home.
The EW-7238RPD offers an extensive array of features and reliable performance in a sleek, wall mounted design. It is compatible with any wireless router or access point.
The EW-7238RPD eliminates Wi-Fi dead zones and solves signal problems to give tablets, smart phones, smart TVs, game consoles, network cameras and other wireless devices access to fast, reliable dual-band Wi-Fi.
The EW-7238RPD extends simultaneous dual-band 2.4GHz & 5GHz Wi-Fi. It supports wireless IEE 802.11a/b/g/n speeds up to 300Mbps. Its universal compatibility makes installation simple regardless of the existing network
configuration. A Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) button provides a secondary setup option for use with WPS-compatible routers/access points. By simply pushing the button on both devices to activate WPS, both the devices will quickly and automatically establish a secure connection.
The EW-7238RPD features IEEE802.3az Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE) that regulates the power supply to an Ethernet data link based on usage.

The in-built ethernet port in the device accommodates devices with no Wi-Fi capacity to enable the EW-7238RPD to be further used as a Wi-Fi client for an ethernet-only device.
